Wake Up with the NEW Renée Rouleau Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel.

Who doesn't need a little added pick me up in the morning? Anything that can help me "wake up" in the early hours of the day is a plus, and this is one thing Renée Rouleau had in mind when creating her brand new Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel.


For more than 20 years, Renée has been helping helping women and celebrities attain healthy, glowing, beautiful skin at her spa and through her line of over 70 products. Knowing how women constantly battle tired, dull-looking skin, Renée set out to create a new formula in the form of a cleanser.  When formulating, Renée knew that studies have shown that when someone smells peppermint, it increases alertness and wakes up the mind. Also, Peppermint has long been known for increasing blood flow to the skin, encouraging a glowing radiance. Thus, Peppermint is one of the main ingredients in the product.

I can certainly attest to the fact that I definitely feel more awake in the morning when using Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel. It contains a unique combination of not only the Peppermint, but Spearmint and Rosemary Oils (along with a few other skin saviors) were added into the mix as well. I use a dime sized amount of the gel and gently rub over my face and neck in the shower. It is a very smooth feeling gel that lathers up gently, while it instantly energizes my skin. Not only does my face feel revived immediately, there is a lasting coolness that lingers on my skin. I love how both my senses are uplifted and my skin looks and feels awake, with just the freshest feeling.

My skin never feels dry or tight when using either. Don't you hate it when you feel like you have to slather moisturizer on immediately after cleansing? That is why Renée made this cleanser (like the rest of the cleansers in her line) soap, sulfate, and paraben free. It does lather up a bit, so you definitely get that squeaky clean feeling, but skin is never stripped of essential hydration as those harsh ingredients are indeed left out.

I am not the only one loving Luxe Mint. Renée has heard from a few of her celebrity clients who are loving it too. Just to name a few, fans include Dancing with the Stars alum and star of the new reality show, When Harry Met Lisa, Lisa Rinna; Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson; and American Idol's Kara DioGuardi.

The only people who should not use this product are those who suffer from a lot of redness in their skin or from rosacea. Also, be careful when working the cleanser around the eye area, as it is refreshing, but strong.
