The Själ Rose Aura Cleansing Set ($140) includes four products- set contains balans deep pore cleanser, mineral källa energy tonic, cela intuitif light cellular renewal crème and the natural konjac sponge. I’ve been playing with two of the products in the set–the balans deep pore cleanser (the 1.o oz. size pictured above) and the natural konjac sponge.
This combination is quite possibly the gentlest cleanser duo that I’ve ever tried. According to the Själ website, this cleanser has numerous rich ingredients, including gold, silver and germanium for anti-microbial, cellular re-generation and detoxifying properties with pearl extract for brightening, and the following benefits:
- promotes cellular detoxification, oxygenation and brightening (germanium and pearl extract)
- helps regulate sebum and minimizes pores (African whitewood extract)
- protects against water loss (fig leaf extract)
- softens and soothes skin (rice bran extract, vitamin E)
This cleanser is gently scented and extremely pleasant to use. It’s has a light gel texture and washes away very cleanly, leaving skin feeling hydrated. It has a light floral scent, with a gentle rose tone. Ingredient list (click to enlarge):
The konjac sponge arrived slightly damp and ready to use, and it dried fairly well over the course of a day. This 100% natural sponge (once dampened) is super soft and gentle, and it is meant to soften and exfoliate the skin. The sponge should never be used dry, indeed it feels like the outer shell of a macaron when dry and we wouldn’t use one of those on our faces, would we?
The combination was very gentle and nice to use. There is no stripping of the skin whatsoever, and the texture and experience is pure luxury.
The gentleness must be kept in mind when you are using the product. For example, when I use my Chanel SPF 50 sunscreen and long-wearing foundations (Chanel Perfection Lumiere, Shiseido Sun Protection, or the Tom Ford stick foundation), this was not quite strong enough to take the day off. For that reason, an oil cleanser would have to be used to take those products off before using this system.
Overall, this is s luxury cleansing system that is remarkably gentle and pleasant to use. If you’d love some end-of-the-day pampering, this is worth a good look.
