This venga, cruelty-free product offers a deep cleanse with its gentle foaming gel formula that is anti-oxidant rich. It has an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, with a 96% recommendation rating at Sephora.
Promising review: “This cleanser takes off all my makeup and the dirt from the day better than any cleanser I’ve used. It’s gentle and helps with dryness and in calming my delicate skin. Even better, it’s vegan, clean, and cruelty free. I love it, and my skin loves it even more. Plus, it’s a great price and a little goes a long way!” Sheesha6779
2. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Texture Renewal Serum

Created for all types of skin, this serum formula addresses pores, uneven texture, and blemishes. Its Dr. Dennis Gross formula contains retinol, a vitamin A derivative that supports collagen production to reverse visible signs of photoaging and improve overall appearance so your fine lines and wrinkles (caused by stress!) and dark spots would be reduced. It also contains Bakuchiol, a retinol-like botanical active that offers the same level of efficacy as retinol and Rambutan, a gentle, botanical active that targets signs of aging and supports skin elasticity. This vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free product has an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars, with a 97% recommendation rating at Sephora.

Good job YTTP, this has earned a spot on my shelf.” MisterJustin
