Keep it Clean

W’s beauty director loves this exfoliating cleanser

Mullein & Sparrow Facial Cleanser

This rich cleanser is made from essential oils, various clays, and flours (oat, which cleans pores, and chickpea, which gently exfoliates) and has the consistency of pesto, still it doesn’t smell like basil but rather lavender mixed with Play-Doh. I can’t decide what’s more intoxicating: the super smooth, almost waxy texture it imparts on my cheeks after I rinse it off, or that divine scent. Who am I kidding? The scent wins every time.
