Sarah Chapman Rapid Radiance Cleanse

Considering Sarah Chapman's Skinesis Ultimate Cleanse and I have struck up such a good relationship that's lasted longtime as part of my evening skincare routine, I figured her newest, and second cleansing member at that, Rapid Radiance, would be worth a shot. Three weeks on, and I know where I'm at in terms of when it should come into play - The best part? It doubles-up as a quick-fix mask, you know I love me a good multitasker. I feel I've been road testing it regularly enough, for long enough to now spill the beans, so get yourselves prepared, for all things based around said product are about to get seriously hyped...

Formulation wise, it's unlike anything I've tried; creamy, but clay-based creamy. The high-grade essential oil blend hits and uplifts as soon as the product comes in contact with the skin - neroli, bergamot and geranium, I've got a feeling that it won't be loved by all, but I'm personally a big fan and inhale the aromatherapy goodness as I go. Post-cleanse, my complexion is left feeling slightly tingly, refreshed and seriously deep cleansed, everything that a clay should do, but there's a time and a place when it's brought out of my bathroom cabinet. Aimed at skin types that are dull, congested, oily or in need of a general radiance boost - I use it for the latter concern or when I get the odd blemish (or three) rear their ugly , angry heads, in the evening, as a second cleanse, preferably when no makeup has been worn that day (do not take it anywhere near the eyes). I apply it to dry skin, massage in all over before leaving for 2 minutes for the radiance hit mask bit, give my teeth a brush in the meantime and follow with a hot flannel removal. Dreamy. 

So let's talk ingredients. Blending brightening, fine and rare clays, it detoxifies and rids excess oil (a good morning cleanser for oiler skin types - preps for the day and makeup application ahead), whilst Poreaway and Detoxophane group up with vitamin C, lactic and salicylic acids to unclog pores, minimise their appearance as well as refining the skin's texture overall. Vitamin heavy oils and fatty acids help to soothe and prevent loss of moisture from the epidermis layer to support suppleness in the skin, resulting in an all-round boost of brightness. My skin just looks happy. Not that I don't ever get excited come the cleansing part of the day, but the fact that I use it on a less regular basis compared to my usuals just makes me look forward to bringing it out all the more.
