In a skincare plot twist, Korean beauty brands have revealed a total game-changer—cleansing sticks. We know, we've only just gotten over "bubble masks." But trust us, your skin will LOVE these new cleansers.
Packaged in swivel tubes, the cleansers foam up when you lather them with water, making them perfect for washing away impurities. Plus, these are possibly the most mess-free, travel friendly cleansers that have ever graced the world. We know what we'll be packing in our hand luggage and gym bags from now on!
K-Beauty brands SU:M37 and Boscia have created some cleansing sticks that are pretty popular in Korea and the US.
In the SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick, you can actually see teeny bits of rose petals. The rose extract ingredient has anti-inflammatory effects which will cool down aggravated skin. Plus, it makes for a lovely floral scent.
Boscia's take on the charcoal skincare trend is their Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment. Perfect for oily skin, this cleansing stick will draw out dirt and oil like a powerful magnet. So wave goodbye to those pesky open pores and blackheads on your nose (finally!).
To use these innovative sticks, wet your face and twist the base of your cleanser to reveal about one centimeter of cleansing stick. Using circular motions, massage the cleansing stick directly onto your face. Then, with your fingertips, gently work the lather into your skin. Rinse your face with water to finish. It's really that easy!
Sadly, these aren't available in the Philippines yet, but we're hoping they come real soon!
