We'll agree that Peter Thomas Roth's newest cleanser may seem like the ultimate skincare gimmick. But! Having road-tested the product ourselves, we can report that it is, in fact, legit. Cleansing butter, unlike traditional soap-based face wash, is extra moisturizing, and uses oils to break down dirt and makeup. Unless you have ultra-oily skin, generally, the more moisture the better when it comes to keeping skin happy.
Peter Thomas Roth's cleansing butter contains chamomile and honey to pamper skin, and the genuine 24K gold particles impart a heavenly glow to your visage. The product comes packaged with a nifty applicator sponge so that you get an added bonus of exfoliation every time you cleanse. And while the cost is certainly steep for a face wash, consider how pampered you'll feel using it. Cleansing Butter: $55. Feeling like royalty after you've had a rough day? Invaluable.
