You guys already know that I have a deep love for Summer Fridays, so much so that my boyfriend pretty much buys the new launches without even asking me. It’s on that level.
I love this damn brand and if you’ve been following my blog for a little while you probably know that. Summer Fridays just released their Super Amino Gel Cleanser on Feb 5th, so I’ve been using it pretty exclusively morning and night for about 2 1/2 weeks. It goes for $38, and for the quality of the bottle alone that’s pretty cheap.
On First Try – I fell in love immediately with the bottle. I did not expect it to be this beautiful light green, frosted, glass bottle. The smell was a little overwhelming at first, but I also ended up loving that too.
After Using For a Couple Weeks – this reminds me of a thinner, less foamy iS Clinical, or fresh soy face cleanser. It’s really great if you have dry skin or feel like your current cleanser is stripping your skin. It’s amazing for pre or post workout. I have pretty sensitive skin after I workout. I learned that the hard way. When I sweat a lot (I also sweat sooo much, and get so red) my skin gets ridiculously tight, if I use a face cloth or my shirt to wipe my skin feels like it’s ripping off. I just gotta let it drip, dry, and then wash. This is so refreshing after working out, you feel clean, but not like you need to immediately add more hydration.
If you like a super foamy cleanser you may have to use multiple pumps and froth it up in my hands before going in – I really never get it frothy. I use 2 pumps every time I use it since the pump attached is short and lets out a small amount, which I kinda love (you don’t overuse or waste).
A lot of people say this takes off all your makeup. I use face halo to remove eye and face makeup so I’m not completely sure about that, but I have noticed I’ve needed to clean up my lower lashes after with eye makeup remover after, but maybe I’m just not scrubbing my eyes enough with the product. The only other peptides I’ve used is the Kate Somerville one, and I hate the smell of that one – this good molecules one smells so nice. Light, and clean.
Favorite Part – I can’t get over how beautiful this bottle is. It’s neutral enough to look pretty on your vanity with any other bottles, and it feels so luxe! I honestly feel like I’m taking care of myself when I use it.
Cons – my only con is that you don’t get that super, super clean feeling. If you have oily skin you may need to froth it up a bit and work it in.
Would I recommend – 100% would recommend, it’s a gentle, delicious smelling cleanser. It’s a great before workout cleanser if you do that before the gym. I just splash water, but I feel like if you’re worried about over-drying your skin this is a great cleanser to rotate in.
