ALIA. – Geranium Scent
Size: 2 fl. oz
- Hydrating, Geranium-scented facial cleansing balm
- Made with 100% organic, cold-pressed argan oil
- Suitable for most skin types, especially dry skin
Cleanse, hydrate and brighten the appearance of your skin with this multi-purpose facial cleanser, also known as argan oil beldi. Beldi is the name for the saponified oil soaps used in Moroccan hammam spas; though traditional beldi is made from olive oil, Dehiya’s argan oil beldi is made from 100% organic, cold-pressed argan oil from the Argan Forest of Morocco. The Geranium-enriched formula is ideal for dry skin and skin prone to hyperpigmentation, as regular use can help to even skin tone and fade the appearance of dark spots. This cleanser is so unique, color may vary based upon local harvesting. No matter what shade you receive, you’ll end up with the same results: smooth, supple skin and a soothing, time-honored ritual to boot.
Massage a dollop of beldi into wet skin. Add water as needed. For best results, use daily and follow with moisturizing treatments. Adjust frequency of use depending on your skin type and seasonal changes.
2–3 times a week, use with Dehiya Mihakka for a deeper exfoliating treatment. Massage Alia into skin using Mihakka, then let it sit for an extra 30-90 seconds before massaging with Mihakka again. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with face oil while skin is still damp.

Potent and effective Game Changer
I have been using this cleanser for three months now. The formula is quite thick, like the previous reviewer stated it is thick like a crytslaized honey. It is important to use with a washcloth, sponge, or highly recomend the mihakka because the cleanser is so thick you need the texture to help work it into a lather. I use less than a pea size and get a frothy but NOT stripping experience. Because it is so potent (again but somehow not stripping) it is importnat to use just a little. I really love it and will be gifting this and the mihakka for the holidays. This is my second step in my double cleanse and I am not sure I will ever change my routine. This is a real game changer.
Not What I Expcted
I bought this product thinking that it could be my new daily cleanser, but it was not what I expected. I don’t consider my skin to be sensitve. As soon as the product touched my skin, it burned, especially on my cheekbones. I was so shocked! I’ve used products that contained argan oil and geranium before but never had a reaction like this. My skin was red and tingly for a whole day afterwards (I used the product at night and felt the burning sensation whenever my face touched my pillow even hours after washing). Folks should be wary because it doesn’t feel hydrating at all.
Also, if you do purchase this product, follow the maker’s instructions. The consistency of the product is more akin to crystilized honey — it’s quite difficult to simply massage it onto wet skin with just your fingers. The maker says to use a washcloth.
