Julep’s skincare is highly underrated. I’ve been a Julep subscriber for years, and although I skip the boxes the majority of the time, I stay a subscriber so I can get deals every once in awhile, mostly on their Rock Star hand cream and other skincare products. Julep skincare is also available at Ulta, and the Love Your Bare Face Detoxifying Cleansing Stick retails for $28. I’m already a huge fan of Julep’s cleansing oil, so I wondered how this product would fare.
The product is housed in a twist-up container and it smells lightly of citrus; sweet and fresh. I use it by wetting my skin with warm water, and sliding the stick all over my face. I also give the stick a little rinse if there is makeup residue left on it.
There are so many things I love about this cleanser. First, it is very gentle and removes every ounce of makeup, even heavy duty mascara. Mascara is always the hardest part of makeup removal for me. My skin feels clean when I’m done using it, but not parched. I love using it with a konjac sponge, but it works fine on its own as well.
Another perk is that this isn’t a liquid, which makes it very easy to travel with! The cleanser does soften up when you use it, so I do not recommend keeping this in a warm place, like the shower. I use it at night only, so that isn’t an issue for me.
Overall, this is a very gentle cleanser and it does an amazing job removing makeup!
