So lately I've been into skincare. I mean, really into skincare. I don't know if it was that Epic Breakout of 2014 but I have seriously turned over a new leaf and have been into cleansers, toners, face masks - the whole enchilada.

A new product in my skincare arsenal is the RevivaLabs Hawaiian Seaweed Cleansing Milk. It's a milky, seaweed-based facial cleanser that eliminates toxins while cleansing. The minerals in the Hawaiian Seaweed are there to energize skin as well as lift up any remaining dirt, makeup and any other stuff that's hanging on your skin that shouldn't be and remove it. The magnesium in the seaweed softens your skin while the veggie oil in this cleanser makes this perfect for day and night cleansing.

Now this has some big shoes to fill as I've been in a committed relationship with my Philosophy Purity One Step Facial Cleaner since, well, whenever I last bought it. It's that serious.

The consistency feels like a light lotion in your hands and has no lather when you add water to it. I removed my makeup before I used this but the website says you can actually use this once to remove your makeup and then again afterward to cleanse. I applied this to a wet face and lightly massaged it all over. I left it on for about a minute and then rinsed it off and patted dry.

My skin felt incredibly smooth and clean - not tight like most cleansers (including Philosophy's). But I figured with smooth, supple, hydrated skin that night, I'd be expecting a nice break out in the morning (my skin just can't handle things being awesome) but I was surprised to see my skin still felt nice and soft and no break outs to be seen! I also usually have a slight dry patch around my nose piercing that never goes away no matter how many times I moisturize it but ever since that night I used this cleansing milk, it's been gone! Woohoo!

Overall: I wasn't quite sure what to expect with a cleansing milk but to say I'm impressed with this one is an understatement! I loved that I didn't need that tightening feeling to know my skin was being cleansed. I can honestly say, I haven't felt my skin this soft since before pregnancy! I absolutely love this.
