Beauty Roadtest: Serena Williams Solves Your Skin Problems With Mission Skincare
April 2, 2010
While some celebrity product lines are just baffling (ahem, Gretchen from Real Housewives), Serena Williams’s Mission Skincare Active Daily Facial Cleanser ($34.98), makes perfect sense.
With all the sweat, sun-exposure and stress of professional sports, Williams understands my skin dilemmas more than the average A-lister. After applying a thin layer of gel of the self-foaming cleanser, I resisted the urge to rub it in and 90 seconds later, a thick, foamy layer had formed. Using a damp towel, I removed the foam, my makeup, and hopefully, my impurities. If exfoliants feel too harsh for your skin, this is the solution for you – it is gentle and non-abrasive. The sweet citrus scent is fruity and refreshing, and the product comes with a bonus: two free lip balms with SPF. A great deal, whether you’re a world class athlete or just a skincare enthusiast.
