iUNIK’s skin care products aim to enhance your natural beauty. That being said, beauty starts with healthy skin, and a healthy skin care routine starts with cleansing. The K-Beauty brand offers the cleansing line of Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil, Centella Bubble Cleansing Foam and Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel to achieve clean, clear and healthy skin.
Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil
Key ingredients: calendula officinalis (pot marigold) flower extract, sunflower seed oil, canola oil, jojoba seed oil, macadamia seed oil, ylang ylang oil, chamomile oil
The first step in a cleansing routine is cleansing oil. Its main job is to lift a day’s worth of excess sebum, dirt and makeup off your face. The Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil does just that without stripping skin of moisture. Suitable for a wide range of skin types (including oily skin and combination skin), the all-in-one cleanser boasts a lightweight texture that won’t clog pores and leaves skin feeling refreshed. It contains 94% plant oils, which offer nutrients to skin as well as soothing and moisturizing effects. Most notably, the calendula extract infused in the cleansing oil reduces blackheads and shrinks pores while alleviating skin irritation.
Centella Bubble Cleansing Foam
Key ingredients: centella asiatica leaf water, tea tree leaf water, green purslane extract, rice bran extract, rooibos extract, licorice root extract
Leave it to a foam cleanser to effectively wash away skin impurities. iUNIK’s mildly acidic Centella Bubble Cleansing Foam gently cleanses skin with its soft, micro-bubble texture. This cleanser contains 69% centella asiatica leaf water and a blend of naturally derived ingredients to soothe skin to reduce redness and inflammation. The moisturizing formula restores skin to a healthy pH level and delivers heaps of hydration to prevent moisture loss during the cleansing process. Best of all, the cleanser can be used daily in the mornings and evenings for smooth and soft skin.
Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel
Key ingredients: Natural AHA Fruits Complex (containing lime, grape, orange, apple and lemon extracts), green tea leaf extract, rosemary leaf extract, cica extract, licorice root extract, chamomile flower extract
Skin exfoliation is key to revealing smooth, clear and bright skin. Depending on your skin type, chemical exfoliators and peeling gels may work better than harsher physical exfoliators. Peeling gels remove dead skin to allow a new layer to shine through, but they do so in a less abrasive way than physical scrubs.
The Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel is a gentle option with a soft jelly texture. This citrusy peeling product softly buffs away dead skin cells, dirt and impurities with Natural AHA Fruits Complex, which is composed of five fruit extracts (apple, grape, lime, lemon and orange). It also provides soothing and moisturizing care. The peeling gel should be used a few times a week.
