I’ve lost half a bottle of none-too-cheap cleanser to the inside of my suitcase for the last time. With pumps that never quite lock and bottles that leak, I’ve traded in my liquid face cleanser for the Volcanic Bliss bar.
It’s made here in Portland by Molly Muriel with tea tree oil, charcoal, lava and neem in a base of coconut and olive oils. It manages to cleanse, gently exfoliate, detoxify and leave skin soft and supple.
To sum up, it travels well, works even better, and the black bar is quite stunning. This might just become my full-time face wash. Béa the dog may start getting some Molly Muriel love now that I’ve spotted their Clean Canine bar.
If you’re in Portland, you can find Molly Muriel products at New Seasons or visit their Milwaukie apothecary shop. Otherwise you can order directly from their site or browse their where to buy list. Stocking stuffer, anyone?
