Pangea Organics Australian Wild Plum & Willow Facial Cleanser
I like US beauty-box service Birchbox because it allows me to try many new products almost for free (ok, 10$ per month for 4-5 deluxe and travel-size samples). In August I have received 30 ml of organic face cleanser Pangea Organics Australian Wild Plum & Willow Facial Cleanser. It has run completely, so it’s time to review it.
Australian Wild Plum & Willow Facial Cleanser — is a gel face cleanser for combination and oily skin. It should not only clean your skin, but also give it more radiance. It contains useful ingredients like Australian Wild Plum complex (antioxidants), willow extracts (to calm your skin) and yucca (to clean you face).
Although I don’t really like gel cleansers, I can’t deny this products was good for my skin. It gently removed impurities and didn’t cause dry or tight feeling after I washed my face. I would by it again, but I got some bad experience with the packaging. It has too big hole, so you can’t measure the amount of product you want to use and always take too much. So you just waste a product that isn’t cheap. You can find product in bigger volume of 4 oz that comes in a bottle. Bottle looks more convenient, but I haven’t tried it.

Final Thoughts: this product was good for my combination skin. However I personally don’t like gel cleansers (prefer soap or foam). Still if you want to look closer to the brand this product will be a good start. Note that smaller packaging will make you waste your product. Considering its value that isn’t budget one itself I would go for bigger bottle.
