Mia Mariu Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser - Review + Giveaway - US Only - Ends 9/8


I'm always on the look out for a facial cleanser that is gentle and effective - especially as I've gotten older, it has become more and more important to find beauty products that won't dry my skin out or leave it irritated.

Mia Mariu is a natural, botanical based beauty company that promotes beauty from the inside out with their line of skin care, mineral makeup, fragrances, and supplements.  

They have revamped their popular Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser and I was happy to be able to try it out!

This new formula is anti-inflammatory including eight natural botanicals - 

- Aloe
- Marigold
- Sea Kelp
- Sea Lettuce

..and essential oils..

- Orange Peel
- Grapefruit
- Lemon
- Lime

This extra gentle cleanser contains more Aloe than the original version, and the addition of Sea Lettuce brings about the benefit of being anti-inflammatory.....what can help soothe reddened and/or sunburnt skin.

Designed for all skin types, this cleanser is sulfate-free, paraben-free, contains no artificial fragrance, and is non-irritating. You'll also be happy to know Mia Mariu doesn't test on animals!


My bunny thanks you for that!

I've always liked the packaging of the Mia Mariu products, so I was happy to see they kept the same packaging and flip top dispenser.

The cleanser itself is crystal clear and the gel is thick enough that you can squeeze the bottle to dispense without it squirting all over the place or giving you more than you want/need.  



The scent is very light and refreshing - a subtle natural citrus. I liked it a lot and no worries for anyone with sensitivities!

I used this morning and evening - simply putting a small amount on moistened skin and gently massaging in in circular motions.  It makes a light foam quickly that allows you to work it all around your face without having to dispense more. A little goes a long way. Then I rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.  



Afterwards, my skin feels clean - but not that tight clean that some harsher products can leave you with.  More than ever, I need a cleanser that leaves my face feeling hydrated and better for having used it.  Because the gel cleanser is all natural, I don't have to worry about ingredients that will dry my skin out, leaving it irritated with more visible wrinkles. 

The Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser is available for just $21 for a 4oz bottle, which I think is a great price point for an all natural product line.

I also had the chance to try the samples of their RestauraCel-C Thermal Microdermabrasion Set - which consists of a Refinisher Cream and Thermal Activator. Combined, they produce a very finely textured warming cream that, when gently rubbed into your face, helps slough away any dead skin cells, leaving you with fresh skin & cleaned out pores! Your skin is then more able to better absorb your skin care products (like their Hydrating Anti-Aging Moisturizer with SPF 30), making them more effective.  I absolutely loved the feel - and it's like giving yourself a little treatment usually reserved for pricey spas! This is a product I definitely need more of!
