GlamGlow SuperCleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser #Review

If you've seen my posts about empties on Instagram, you know that facial cleansers hold a special place in my beauty collection, and I'm always looking for a new one to try. I am in love with GlamGlow's masks, so you can imagine how excited I was when I heard they were releasing two daily facial cleansers! Recently, GlamGlow released a SuperCleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser that rinses away pore-clogging dirt and impurities to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and create a clear complexion and a ThirstyCleanse Daily Treatment Cleanser which creates a hydrated dewy appearance. Both cleansers are a mud-to-foam formula that removes dirt, oil and makeup without drying out your skin.

I'm trying out the SuperCleanse, since I have oily skin that is prone to breakouts. Here's a highlight of the ingredients:
-TEAOXI® Technology (Eucalyptus Leaf Powder): Delivers natural eucalyptol, natural linalool oil, and powerful flavonoids to soothe and treat skin.
-K17 and Mediterranean Clays: Detoxify, refine skin texture, and balance problem-prone skin.
-Bamboo Charcoal: Provides balanced replenishment to the skin with essential bamboo minerals.
-Black Cumin Seed Extract: Provides antimicrobial and antioxidant properties to help provide a more clear complexion. 
Water, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Kaolin, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Nigella Sativa Seed Extract, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerin, Carbon (Bamboo Charcoal), Propanediol, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Powder, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, Glyceryl Polyacrylate, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance, Linalool, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
I ran the ingredients list through CosDNA and was pleasantly surprised to only find one ingredient to be a mild potential trigger for causing acne or irritating sensitive skin. I'd say that's my que to finally get this mud on my face!

The cleanser comes in a handy pump-dispenser bottle - nice!

We're going to test out it's makeup removing abilities tonight!

The mud is very smooth, with the same smell and color as the SuperCleanse mask.

After applying to my face - doesn't it match my Hello Kitty headband nicely?

After massaging a bit of water into the mud on my face. There isn't much foaming going on, but it feels very nice on my face!

My face sure looks clean!  I love how nicely it rinses away.

When I massaged the mud away with water, I gently massaged the cleanser over my eyes to remove my eye makeup. This cleanser did an amazing job removing even my Benefit They're Real mascara - wow!

I broke out my Neutrogena toner to pull any remaining crud from my skin that the cleanser may have missed, and aside from a few stray specs of mascara, the SuperCleanse really did remove all my makeup!

I am completely impressed! While the GlamGlow SuperCleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser has a hefty price tag, I have to say that with results like these, I think the product is completely worth the price. You can find the SuperCleanse at Sephora for $39.
