What: Bioelements Urban Detox, $37
Why: Because I live in a city where I get dirty just leaving my apartment and walking to the subway. Because I feel the need to wash my face the minute I escape the urban jungle at the end of the day. And because everyone needs to detox — country and city-dwellers alike.
Bioelements Urban Detox protects your face against damage caused by the environment – specifically a bustling one. It creates an extra barrier against smog, dirt, and all the nasty stuff that just seems to sit in the air in the city, and can also reverse some damage already caused. Plus Urban Detox 'boosts the efficiency of your sunscreen'. Now I don't know if that's true, but it couldn't hurt to add an extra layer between the sun and my face.
Bonus: Put in the fridge and then use under your eyes as a cooling eye gel. Amazing.
