Sponge Sweet Basil Gel Review

Basil on the Face Is a Very Good Thing

Three things are making me bonkers about basil this August. First, this recipe is simple but tasty. Secondly, the Cap'n Jazz reunion tour means I get to hear Basil's Kite live. And finally, there's Sponge Gel Basiliko ($65) — which translates to either "sweet basil gel" or "heavenly scented godsend for acne-prone skin." Maybe both.

Sweet Basil Gel is an alternative to a traditional face cream, so it's bound to appeal to people who don't want to wear a heavy moisturizer in the hot hot heat. The lightweight formula incorporates summery plants like sweet basil, lime, and olive leaf — and now Sponge's skin care is paraben-free, in case you care. While it isn't a blemish-fighting product, I find its lightweight texture is excellent for oily, acne-prone skin. But really, the reason I swoon over this gel is the soft, fresh basil scent. It's unusual in skin care, but it smells so. good. Definitely a splurge-worthy item if you're similarly in love with basil.

Hazelberry, I used to on the box but I don't have it any longer. Just looked at Barneys and it isn't there, either. If I track it down, I'll post!

Bella, do you have the full ingredients for this product? I couldn't find it...not even on their website.
