Product Review: Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser

      A cleanser with clay in it? Yep. Usually clay is the main ingredient in masks, so a clay based cleanser was something new and intriguing to me. One of Ceramic Slip's primary ingredients is refined French Green Clay. The cleanser is one out of four Sunday Riley products that I've recently purchased, and from reading reviews and video interviews with Sunday Riley, her products are supposed to work better together. So is Ceramic Slip worth the hefty $45 pricey tag? Read on to see!

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser, 4.2oz
Price: $45

This cleanser purifies the skin, tightens pores, and supports natural collagen and circulation with natural essential oils to tone and balance the skin. It detoxifies, minimizes pore size, and helps you achieve a flawless, “ceramic-smooth” complexion.

Aqua (Water), Montmorillonite (French Green Clay), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocopolyglucoside Tartrate, Sodium Cocopolyglucoside Citrate, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C Ester), Piper Nigrum (Black Pepper) Fruit Oil, Botswellia Carterii (Frankincense) Oil, Jasmine Officinale Oil, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA


     As with most Sunday Riley products, Ceramic Slip has a rather unique scent. One of the ingredients is black pepper and I definitely smell that along with the Neroli and jasmine oil as well. The color leaves much to be desired as it is an unappealing green-gray shade, but I know it's that shade because of the French green clay. The scent doesn't bother me as much as it seems to bother other owners, but I completely understand why it is so off-putting for others. In terms of cleansing power, I actually really like it. I have oily skin that is sometimes combination. I wouldn't recommend this cleanser at all for dry skin - it'll definitely be too stripping for those with dry skin. Even though it doesn't lather up much (a quality in cleansers that I've over the years grown to look for when I used to only want foaming cleansers oddly enough) but turns into this creamy white minimally foaming texture after it comes into contact with water. I've read from several reviews that when cleansing there is this slightly warming sensation, but I personally haven't felt that. I wouldn't recommend using this cleanser day and night even if you have oily skin as your skin may become too stripped of natural oils. Even with my oily skin, I think if I used this first thing in the morning my face will definitely feel too tight. I use around two pumps as the last step in my shower after my skin is already moisturized by the steam and water from my shower. I also don't use this cleanser as a makeup remover but only as a cleanser so I can't vouch for whether it is good at removing makeup.


Concluding Remarks

      Ceramic Slip is definitely a pricey cleanser at $45, but if you have the budget for it I would recommend it for any of you who have combination to oily skin. I can also safely say that after using it for a little over a week straight, I haven't had a single breakout and my skin hasn't been in the least irritated after cleansing. For those of you with sensitive noses, definitely go to Sephora and give this a good whiff before plonking down $45 - the smell may be enough to drive some of you away.
