This stick works a bit of magic, cleansing without water and at the same time treating skin to a trio of moisturizing botanical oils — carrot, rice bran, wheat germ — that don’t exactly sound sexy but feel heavenly when you put them on. Formulaé Prescott Tri Balm Cleanser Stick goes on light and clear — it feels more like a facial oil than a stick — and pumpkin enzymes get to work breaking up grime. It’s light, I actually like to tap a little onto my cheekbones for a natural-looking highlight, and let it be (like in the pic above). The formula wipes or rinses away easily, while those oils leave you feeling soft and smooth. Run the stick over dry skin and then rinse it away for a hydrating cleanse morning or night. You can also skip water altogether and tissue the formula off dry skin for a quick refresh when you’re not near a sink (like on an airplane). Let the formula sit on your skin for an extra 10 minutes and you’ve got a cleansing-meets-hydrating mask.
