I’m coming back very soon – I was selected to be on the judging panel for the CertClean Clean Beauty Awards for the fourth year in a row, and I’m judging four categories this year – Hair Treatments, Body Scrubs, Face Serums and Lip Care!
Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!
If you follow me on Instagram, you will already know this, but I’m on the judging panel for the 2022 CertClean Clean Beauty Awards (along with 125 others). This will be my third year on the judging panel. CertClean is North America’s leading certification organization for safer skincare.
This year, there are 455 Clean Beauty products entered in 24 categories! I will be judging THREE categories this year – Face cream, Body Wash, and Eyeliners!
I’ll post more on this once as the products arrive.
If you follow me on InstaGram, you will know that I was asked to be on the judging panel for the CertClean’s 5th Annual Clean Beauty Awards, and was on the judging panel for face washes. I received a total of eight facial cleansers and tested them out from late August, until the end of November when I submitted my scoring grid.
Here’s my round one face wash products:
Birch Babe Naturals Facial Bar
AEOS Energized Organics Cleansing Oil Dé-Maq
Be Genki Radiant Cleansing Oil
Pure Saavy Come Hell or High Water 3-in-1 Micellar Water
Penny Lane Organics Cleansing Milk & Makeup Remover
Kaelen Harwell Refining Roman Chamomile Ylang Ylang Cleanser
Aromatica Natural Coconut Cleansing Oil
EcoTan Super Citrus Cleanser
I had pages (and pages) of notes during the testing period – with information on the companies, type of cleanser, ingredients, usability, and personal experience with the products. The quality of all of the facial cleansers was very high, which made scoring so difficult, and in the end, it was often 1 point difference that separated my top scoring face washes.
The finalists of Round One judging was announced on February 3rd. Here’s the finalists for the Face Wash Category:
SanRe Organic Skinfood Rose Cleanse
Helena Lane Skincare Red Western Cedar & Lemon Cleanser
Alighten Natural Skin Care Gentle Renewing Facial Cleanser
Jane Apothecary Soothing Cleansing Balm
Lo & Behold Naturals Echinacea and Chamomile Cleansing Balm
Biossance Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Gel
Eco Tan Super Citrus Cleanser
Province Apothecary Moisturizing Oil Cleanser + Makeup Remover
Aiona Alive Skin Care E-citrus Exfoliating Cleanser
Derma E Acne Deep Pore Cleansing Wash
Out of the ten finalists, only one of the products that I tested / judged in Round One will be moving onto Round Two of judging – the Eco Tan Super Citrus Cleanser which was in my top three! Round Two judging will be starting soon for the finalists in the Face Wash category! Very exciting!
Thanks for reading
Disclosure: I received eight cleansers to test and score for Round One of the CertClean Clean Beauty Awards Face Wash judging panel. My opinion is based on my experience with these products.
