We have an obsession with cleansing. That soft, fresh skin feeling—it's what we know, and it's what we strive for–especially when removing makeup. We’ve even become accustomed to using multiple cleansers (and toners) to get the job done. Then, Tina Chen Craig, founder of U BEAUTY and always one to simplify things, decided she was finished with the traditional multi-phase regimen and set out to create something that eliminates the need for multiple products and made a singular comprehensive formula that does the whole job.
Considering the effectiveness of Craig’s first such innovation, The Resurfacing Compound (retinol, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and more all in one bottle), and our SHOPPERS’ and curators’ undying love for the brand, the VIOLET LAB was more than happy to bench our arsenal of cleansers and give the MANTLE Skin Conditioning Wash a try.
Starting with dry skin, our testers massaged the luxe balm over the entire face, including directly onto the eyelids. The formula spread easily and immediately melted away pigmented and waterproof makeup. As directed, we added water and watched as the texture emulsified into a gentle milky fluid. After rinsing and patting dry, our skin was pleasantly clean but not squeaky or stripped. We could feel the conditioning agents acting as a protective shield–fortifying the acid mantle so that skin remained plump and hydrated in the face of environmental aggressors. Off to the committee it went.
“I love how it goes from a cream to oil and it is unscented. It works nicely to deep clean and regulate sebum, and I even used it as a massage cream.”
—JOANNA CZECH, Aesthetician
“I love this two-in-one cleanser–the thick luxurious texture removes every trace of makeup and leaves the skin conditioned, smooth, and hydrated.”
—SOFIE PAVITT, Aesthetician
“U BEAUTY always has uniquely pleasant formulations. This cleanser feels potent but still hydrating due to humectants and alpha-hydroxy acids.”
—DR. DAN BELKIN, Dermatologist
With testers loving this time-saving multitasker that also gave them healthier, more resilient skin, U BEAUTY’S The MANTLE Skin Conditioning Wash is officially VIOLET CODE APPROVED and has earned a place on THE SHELVES.
