NEW The Body Deli Blueberry Fusion Cleanser

When the weather is humid and the sun is unflinching, this skincare junkie can't help but be attracted to a brand with fresh food ingredients and products with names like Sea Cucumber Gelee that require refrigeration.

After a few sessions of sticking my head in the freezer to cool off last week, I found myself typing thebodydeli.com into my browser. (After discovering the brand last summer, I was instantly addicted to its fresh cucumber toner.) This year, I was excited to discover the just-launched Blueberry Fusion resurfacing cleanser. From its rich purple hue, description and ingredients, I suspected it would become my new fav face wash. It is.

Pretty factor: Lactic and malic acids slough off dead skin cells and unclog pores (the wash tingles upon application!), while acai and blueberry extracts feed the skin anti-aging antioxidants. Decyl glucoside, a super mild plant-derived surfactant, gently removes grime and makeup, and oat flour soothes.

If you have extra bucks, try the Sea Cucumber Gelee—a summer must-have mask.  It hydrates parched, sun-zapped skin, calms redness, and helps repair free radical damage. Some of its irresistible ingredients include organic aloe vera juice, sodium hyaluronate, and fresh wheatgrass, dandelion leaf, and kale juices.  Coolest of all:  It ships on ice and must be stored in the frig.

Eco factor:
Body Deli products contain fresh, organic plant, fruit and veggie extracts. No sulfates or other harsh surfactants, paraben preservatives, silicones, petrochemicals, or synthetic dyes and fragrance.

To buy: $38 for the cleanser and $45 for the cucumber mask at TheBodyDeli.com

Oh man, that face mask sounds heavenly! Definitely considering it, especially as it ships on ice!! I recently got two Lush masks from my visit to SF, and they feel AMAZING out of the fridge, but I'm so sad I can't get them here in San Diego! Maybe this will be a good alternative. Thanks for the rec. =)
