FOR THE CURIOUS

What skin type is Lemongrass Cleanser best for?

All Genetic Skin Types -- Dry, Combo and Oily Babes

Skin Conditions -- Dull or Lackluster Complexion, Hyperpigmentation and Uneven Skin Tone, Acne Prone with Breakouts, Blemishes and Blackheads, Signs of Aging, Oiliness and Congestion, Sensitive, Reactive.

Which skin conditions does Lemongrass Cleanser target?

DULL, LACKLUSTER COMPLEXION
dead, crusty skin build up, rough texture, lacking radiant, healthy glow


HYPERPIGMENTATION
uneven skin tone, dark spots and patches, sun spots or age spots


BREAKOUTS, BLEMISHES + BLACKHEADS
active acne, acne spots + scarring, congested pores + blackheads


SIGNS OF AGING
fine lines and wrinkles, sagging and lax tissue, loss of plumpness and skin thickness


OILINESS + CONGESTION
larger visible pores, excess oil production, textural issues

Why is Lemongrass called a "Cleansing Serum?"

You’ll fall in love with this truly unique cleansing experience. We dubbed it a “serum” because of its milky, silky texture and gentle, non-foaming formulation. It’s smooth, luxurious and a little different from your traditional sudsy soap.

We’ve been so conditioned to believe that frothy, foaminess equals a deeper cleanse and a squeaky clean feel. But this is not the full truth.

Sometimes, that “squeaky clean feel” is actually a sign of tight, dry skin that has been stripped of its natural oils, exposed to harsh irritants, and left with an imbalanced pH. Sadly, many of the super-bubble-inducing ingredients are sneaky toxins / carcinogens and known skin irritants. Not ideal and totally unnecessary.

Lemongrass Cleansing Serum deep cleans and leaves the skin feeling polished, refreshed, and balanced, even without the presence of foam.

What are the active ingredients? 

POTENT PLANT EXTRACTS:
Passion Flower, German Chamomile, Pineapple, Aloe Vera, Lemon, and Grape


AHA + BHA POTION:
Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid


SKIN-NOURISHING OILS:
Grapeseed Oil, Emu Oil, Spearmint Leaf Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Lemongrass Oil


ANTIOXIDANTS + HYDRATION:
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Glycerin

Can I use Lemongrass every day?

Yes, here's how to introduce our Lemongrass Cleansing Serum into your ritual:

While safe for daily use, we recommend starting slow, acclimating to the active, gently exfoliating ingredients to find your sweet spot.

For our dry and sensitive babes — you may love this cleanser just a few times per week.

For our combo and oily babes — you may love this cleanser everyday, morning or night.

Rotate with our Oatmylk Creamy Cleanser for the perfect Yin Yang duo and be sure to consider any other intensive anti-aging or anti-acne products you’re using to avoid over-exfoliating or over-working the skin.

Pro Tip: mix a pump of Lemongrass with a pump of Oatmylk for double the fun!

Can I use Lemongrass to remove makeup?

Yes. Lemongrass can be lathered with water and applied directly to skin to dissolve makeup, dirt, debris, dead skin cells, pollutants and impurities.

A couple of easy ways to ensure a thorough removal of face makeup are:

~ double cleansing
~ adequate time and intention massaging the cleanser to allow it to work it’s magic
~ drying skin with a clean face towel to help remove remnants
~ wiping down with our Optimyst Mineralizing Spray on a cotton round to collect any leftover makeup (replaces need for makeup remover and a toner!)
~ use our Mu Juice Emu Oil as a waterproof makeup remover

Avoid using on the eyes / getting in eyes.

Can I use Lemongrass if I’m more Sensitive or Reactive?

Yes. We recommend simply starting slow and working your skin up to the gentle exfoliation, much like starting a new workout routine.

Unlike many other acid / anti aging / anti acne cleansers on the market, Lemongrass is formulated with tons of hydrating, protecting, and nourishing ingredients to create balance while we cleanse. We give the skin the support it needs to benefit from the daily, mild exfoliation.

We also left out ingredients that are known to cause skin irritations, pose health risks, throw off our pH, disrupt our delicate microbiome, or strip our skin of its natural oils.

If you’re more sensitive or reactive, introduce Lemongrass a few times per week to start. Then, use our Oatmylk Creamy Cleanser for all other cleansing.

Do this for a week before adding a day.
Continue to slowly add over time, allowing the skin to adapt and build up it's tolerance.

Each unique face has a “goldilocks sweet spot” – most babes can easily work up to daily use, alternating Lemongrass with Oatmylk for morning and night.

Will this cleanser leave me feeling tight or dry?

Lemongrass gives us a deep, squeaky clean feel without ever drying us out.

 

It’s formulated with super hydrating, nourishing ingredients combined with potent anti-aging and anti-acne actives that gently exfoliate dead, dull cells daily.

We effectively target specific skin conditions -- to brighten, lighten and tighten -- while locking in moisture, rebuilding the skin’s protective barrier, and plumping up our skin cells.

While safe for daily use, we recommend starting slow, acclimating to the active, gently exfoliating ingredients to find your sweet spot. Be sure to consider any other intensive anti-aging or anti-acne products you’re using to avoid over-exfoliating or over-working the skin.

Does this have a scent or fragrance?

Inhale the bright, citrusy scent of pure lemongrass essential oil.

Not only does lemongrass bring numerous benefits to the skin, but its sweet aroma uplifts our spirits and transforms our cleansing routine into a blissful sensory experience.


We never add any synthetic fragrances or parfums to our products.

Is Lemongrass Cleanser vegan and cruelty free?

This cleanser is infused with pure, refined emu oil which is derived from the fat of emu birds, making it an animal-derived ingredient. As such, it is not considered vegan.

 

However, all MELT by Melissa products are cruelty-free and created with the commitment to ethical and compassionate practices towards animals.

 

We do not support testing on animals during any stage of product development or manufacturing.
