I'm Loving S.W. Basics Cleanser. With Only Three Ingredients, It Can't Get Any More Natural.

I have tried TONS of natural cleansers and haven't really been impressed with many of them. I usually find that I end up having to use a toner in addition, to remove all of the extra makeup that's left on my skin. But I love S.W. Basics of Brooklyn's Cleanser. With only three ingredients in their cleanser: rosewater, vegetable glycerin and tea tree oil, it's a dream for those of us addicted to truly natural products.

How does it work? You just pour a little on a piece of cotton, wipe your face completely and then rinse off a few times with water.   I also have their toner that I use right after cleansing as well. The bottles are glass - which is great - and it's super easy to use.

From the S.W. Basics site:

"When did scrubbing your face with harsh chemicals become the standard way to get clean? We think that's weird. Next to rinsing with water, this cleanser is about as simple as you can get. It's perfect for problem and sensitive skin. It’s gentle, non-drying, and contains no alcohol. Plus it smells awesome. We start with a traditional organic rosewater-and-glycerin base and add a tiny bit of organic tea tree oil. No soap, no alcohol, no para-sulfate-whatchamacallits." $24.00 for 4 oz.

*I was not given this product to review, I purchased it myself.


  1. I ditto your review of Sprout cleanser. I never cleansed my face this way before learning of Sprout's pure products, now I'll never EVER go back to soap or anything else that can dry my 60yr old skin again.

  2. Thanks for the comment. Nice to hear from another Sprout Sister!

  3. Arrrgh! How I wish we have Sprout here in Singapore. :( The toner looks really promising.

  4. Contact the company...I'm sure they'd love to get into some stores in Singapore!
