Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Cleanser Review & Giveaway! #MiaMariu

I am super particular about my face wash.  Mostly because over the course of my life, I've tried so many of them with a heck of a lot of disappointment.  I've got super sensitive skin.  I've said that before in reviews.  My skin doesn't take well to many things and one thing I can not stand is when I use a face wash and afterwards it just feels like I stripped my face with hard chemicals.  The worst feeling for me is when I wash my face and after I dry my skin, my skin feels dry and tight like all of the moisture and life was just sucked out of my skin.  So now that you know what a crazy I am about face wash....(I'm sure the folks at Mia Mariu are now terrified to continue reading thinking what did we get ourselves into with this nut)....well I'll tell Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Cleanser.....was just that.  Refreshing!   Thank goodness for me!

The folks at Mia Mariu were gracious enough to send me a sample of their foaming cleanser to try and it was nice on my skin, gentle, left my skin feeling soft and did NOT make me feel like my face was going to shrivel up and fall off like the many other cleansers I've tossed in the trash over the years.  This stuff was great!  I think I will have to (in my opinion) contribute that to the fact that this is an anti-inflammatory formula that is made with natural botanicals, not nasty chemicals!  Its not designed to strip every bit of everything (including the good stuff) from your skin like a clean slate.  It cleanses but it nurtures at the same time.  Its got aloe, marigold, sea kelp, sea lettuce and essential oils like orange peel, lemon, lime and grapefruit.  Its also paraben-free, sulfate-free and fragrance-free.  The fragrance-free though, I think just means artificial fragrance.  Because I do pick up a hint of a scent but I think I'm picking up the essential orange oil.  Because I seem to smell a bit of orange.  Its super super subtle.  But I like it!  Its sort of relaxing while I'm washing my face to have that little hint of citrus scent.

If I spotted this stuff in the store, I would grab it again in a heart beat!  For years I dealt with rashes and dryness while at the same time battling zits.  Yep....I had oily zits AND dry patches of skin.  Because I was trying to find cleansers to help with oil skin but also needed something for sensitive easily drying skin so I ended up with redness from constantly experimenting with different brands.  If I had this stuff way back when, I think I would have been much happier with the condition of my skin.

So in other words.....would I recommending trying this stuff?  Yes!!!   Absolutely!!   I loved it. I know everyone's skin is different but trust me....I know what its like to have super touchy, picky skin so if you're anything like me at all, this is worth a try.  And if you're skin is not sensitive, then awesome!  You should love this stuff too!
