This gentle cleanser will also effectively remove eye make-up.
Honey is a natural anti-oxidant and an effective moisturiser, having the ability to both absorb and retain moisture. Honey is a natural antiseptic and lifts impurities from the pores making it an ideal cleansing agent. Egyptian beauties regularly applied honey and milk to the face to keep the skin young-looking, radiant, and smooth.
About Apricot Oil:
Apricot kernel oil is readily absorbed into the skin without leaving an oily residue behind. It is perfect for dry skin, and is mild enough for the most sensitive, delicate complexions. The oil contains both oleic and linoleic essential fatty acids and is high in vitamins A and E. It will help to soothe dry, sensitive and irritated skin.
About Green Tea:
Green Tea (camelia sinensis) has many skin benefits and studies have credibly demonstrated that topical green tea formulations reduce sun damage by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation. Further studies also showed benefits in the treatment of roseacea. High in polyphenols the extract may slow down the development of wrinkles and fine lines, soothe stressed skin and firm and restore skin tone.
About Cucumber Extract:
With both moisturising benefits and mildly astringent cucumber extract is also very soothing, helps relieve puffiness and is naturally cooling. Cucumber will also gently exfoliate, tighten and help revitalise the skin.
