9 reviews for Fresh Start Invigorating Cream Cleanser

  1. Beba

    Certified cruelty-free

    I love that this product is cruelty-free. It has a great smell and feels good on your skin, but I took off 1 star because it is so “liquidy”. I like a richer lotion type product that doesn’t run through your fingers or down your face. Just my personal preference, but I feel like it’s very wasteful.

  2. Caleb’s Mom

    Terrible pump and irritated skin

    I have been on a quest for a “cleaner” face wash that actually works. This isn’t it. The bottle itself was obnoxious and sprays the cleanser all over when you push on the pump. The cleanser itself smelled awful and burns my skin. I do not generally have sensitive skin, so I was shocked by this. It also doesn’t remove my eye makeup. Wish I could return it.

    Too creamy for my oily skin. Made me break out

  4. SKIinNC

    THIS REALLY WORKS!

    I found this wash last year at my grocery store and fell in love until they stopped carrying it. It’s amazing! It provides a deep clean and leaves your face feeling “minty fresh” without overdrying. Changing to this cleanser 2x day helped end the occasional breakout and my skin definitely is smoother and softer without feeling tight. I live at the beach and I definitely would recommend “Day Undone” serum as well- it has pretty much replaced my $95 night cream! Xo

    Excellent sulfate-free ORGANIC cleanser! In a stainless container!

    Love this cleanser and all of the organic natural ingredients included. It removes my makeup including mascara completely. This cream cleanser does not leather : which is a good thing because it does not contain sodium laurel sulfates which are not good and are used for lather. It is tingly on the skin and has no fragrance added, just a neutral smell—also a good thing!! I like that it’s organic and that it comes in a stainless container with a pump rather than plastic..also a good thing!!! I will continue to purchase.

    Best facial cleanser ever

    Hands down the best facial cleanser I’ve ever used. I came across it by chance, quickly abandoned my Philosophy facial cleanser and will use this for as long as they continue to make it! It removes all my makeup, including waterproof mascara, completely and effortlessly. It smells heavenly, with a very strong lavender/woodsy essential oil scent that is so relaxing. Most importantly: my skin feels AMAZING. (I have somewhat sensitive skin that tends to be dry, and breaks out occasionally.) This cleanser has a gentle cooling feel that lasts after I rinse it off, and my skin feels so soothed and calmed and soft all day after I use this. I have some redness on my cheeks and it’s almost vanished entirely, and the blemishes I get now and then have cleared up completely. I can’t stop touching my cheeks…they are seriously baby soft. I can’t say enough good things about this cleanser. LOVE.

    Skincare Favorite

    This is a product that I purchase over and over again (and I can’t say that about many face, hair or body products). I really like the invigorating scent and the lightness of the product. Will continue to re-purchase

GODDESS-GARDEN-REEF SAFE 1000X729px

Reef Safe

All Goddess Garden Sunscreens are Reef Safe

Some of the most common chemical sunscreens, oxybenzone and octinoxate, have been linked to the destruction of our coral reefs.

This damage can occur even at very low concentrations of these chemicals in the water.

Because of this, they’ve even been banned in placed like Hawaii, Key West, Bonaire and the Republic of Palau.

Minerals, on the other hand, are reef safe, so do not harm reef environments and the vast life they support.

We never use toxic or harmful chemicals, so all our sunscreens are completely reef-safe! 

Certified Organic

All Goddess Garden ingredients are Certified Organic wherever possible.

Pure minerals offer powerful UV protection, but they can never be considered “organic” ingredients since they’ve never been alive.

This means mineral sunscreens (whether made by Goddess Garden or not) will never be 100% organic.

Leaping Bunny Certified

By 1996, ‘cruelty-free’ shopping had become popular, but it was also confusing, sometimes misleading, and ultimately frustrating. Companies had begun designing their own bunny logos, abiding by their own definition of ‘cruelty-free’ or ‘animal friendly’ without the participation of animal protection groups.

In response, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. We work with companies to help make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy.

Why We Designed our Daily Facial Routine

To understand why we designed our Daily Facial Routine to address sun damage and other skin aging, it helps to go back to the start of our company. Our founders, Nova and Paul, were inspired to create Goddess Garden because they needed a safe sunscreen made with clean, natural ingredients for their daughter.
They identified a problem and created their own solution.

They learned a lot along the way, including that the sun is responsible for 90 percent of the visible signs of skin aging.
That means if we’d all used sunscreen on our faces every time we were exposed to the sun in our lives, we’d all boast baby faces—but we didn’t.

Here, Nova and Paul saw another problem: How do you undo years of not wearing sunscreen?
True to their innovative spirit, they again went to work on a solution—the Daily Facial Routine.

Repairing Sun Damage Naturally

Repairing sun damage is pretty complicated stuff. That’s because the damage itself is complex as well. It has to do with the different spectrums and wavelengths of the UV rays and how each affects the skin. Mineral sunscreen is the first step to addressing the problem. You have to stop the damage so your skin can begin to heal itself. Goddess Garden has been providing this solution to our customers for years.

Then we decided to take it to the next step: The repair process.

To further complicate the problem, synthetic chemicals are commonly marketed to help people turn back time. Luckily, we geek out on finding natural alternatives. We read about willow bark and baobab oil for fun! We’re like kids in a candy store when it comes to nature. There are so many wonderful ingredients to choose from that won’t cause their own problems later on.

A Plant-Powered Skincare Solution

We looked for ingredients that could restore the things years of sun exposure takes away from our skin. Nature once again provided just what we needed: strong antioxidants, vitamins, moisturizers and ways to deliver nutrients where they’re needed most. We mixed and tested, and even started over when we found ingredients that were higher in antioxidants or provided a better firming effect. We learned and mixed and tested again.

And all that testing and experimenting resulted in eight facial products—all with nutrients you can feel and natural ingredients that really work—to help undo the visible signs of aging!

The Daily Facial Routine

Our morning and evening products make skincare routines a snap, while providing all the complex nutrients your skin needs. Just take a peek at the product line: 

Morning:

Fresh Start Invigorating Cream Cleanser: 

  • Effective against breakouts, yet gentle enough for sensitive skin. It tones and refreshes with witch hazel and tea tree oil as willow bark gently exfoliates.

Goddess Garden Bright Eyes Firming Eye Cream: 

  • Powerful antioxidants from red tea minimize puffiness while seaweed extract mimics the effects of hyaluronic acid to preserve and support collagen production.

Under the Sun Hydrating Vitamin Serum: 

  • Sunscreen primer ensures even distribution of our Face the Day SPF lotion, with a nourishing vitamin complex to help repair sun-related aging and protect skin from daily damage.

Face the Day Daily SPF 30 Moisturizer & Firming Primer: 

  • Completely sheer, lightweight SPF from reef-safe, non-nano zinc protects the skin while chicory root imitates retinol to firm, lift fine lines and promote long-term collagen production. 

Tinted Face the Day Daily SPF 30 Moisturizer & Firming Primer:  

  • An lightweight four-in-one product that protects, moisturizes, primes and offers a subtle tint in four color-adaptive shades that smooth the skin and even complexion.

Evening:

Erase the Day Purifying Clay Cleanser:

  • Kaolin clay pulls away impurities, minerals and makeup to reveal soft, smooth skin as oat protein replaces hydration lost throughout the day. 

Day Undone Softening Night Serum:

  • Powerful after-sun serum uses natural ingredients like nourishing mango butter and pomegranate oil to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots caused by sun exposure. 

Dream Repair Brightening Night Cream:

  • Sunscreen primer ensures even distribution of our Face the Day SPF 30 moisturizer, with a nourishing vitamin complex to help repair sun-related aging and protect skin from daily damage.

Sun Repair Made Simple

That’s it. It’s pretty simple. The Daily Facial Routine protects your skin to halt the damage; it helps your skin help itself while providing an extra boost that delivers instant results with long-term benefits—all with plant-based formulas and gentle ingredients.

So look back with nothing but fondness at every moment you’ve spent on this Earth, even if you forgot the sunscreen a time or twelve. We’re all about simply enjoying life, so we hope sun damage can be one less thing to worry about!
