Looking for a cleanser that can take your complexion from dull to luminous in a very short amount of time? If the answer is “yes, please!” then Body Merry has the perfect face wash for you.
The product: Body Merry’s Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser
What it’s good for: Cleaning your face, but in a really thorough kind of way. Body Merry actually recommends not using this face wash daily because of its strength. As they put it, “The ingredients in this product are stronger than your average face wash so we suggest starting out by using it only 1-2 times per week then increase your usage of it from there, based off of how your skin tolerates it.”
My skin is on the dry/sensitive side and I’ve found that using this face wash 1-2 times per week is the perfect frequency. That way I’ve been getting the brightening and cleansing effects minus any dryness or irritation.
Key natural ingredients: There are several awesome natural ingredients to highlight here. Of course this cleanser contains glycolic acid, which is a type of alpha hydroxy acid known to have the smallest molecular size and hence the greatest bioavailability. In other words, it can really get into your pores and clean them out. Next, this cleanser features acne-fighting willowbark which is a natural source of salicylic acid. There are also jojoba beads to help the exfoliation process. But don’t worry, they’re not environmentally unfriendly. These tiny beads are made from jojoba oil.

The price tag: $18.99 (6 fl oz). Not a bad price at all and it will last a long time since you’ll be alternating it with another cleanser.
Where to buy: BodyMerry.com (right now they have free shipping on U.S. orders over $25!)
My favorite perk: This face wash is awesome at unclogging pores and getting rid of dead skin, which is great news for everyone, but especially those of us who struggle with breakout-prone skin.
