Thank you for your support in stopping by to read my blog. I wanted to share this foam cleanser because my first impressions were that it smelled lovely and it did not break out my sensitive skin. This cleanser comes in a 100ml or the equivalent to 3.4oz. It is packaged in an identical blue box. The tube it self is very elegant blue.
The first thing that got my attention was the smell. It contains a base of white cedar, musk and amber. Your nose will also pick up Seville oranges, jasmine tea, freesia, white peach, magnolia, roses and jasmine. Definitely not for a sensitive nose. It is known to pack for it’s perfume quality.
The foam is very thick and creamy with a pearl shimmer. It lathers very nicely. A little bit goes a long way. It removes makeup residue and waste inside the pores without irritating. Manufacturer recommends this product to people with sensitive, dry and rough skin. It was tested to be hypoallergenic in a human application test. Another thing that caught my attention is that it is cruelty free and does not do animal testing.
The ingredients include: Zanthoxylum Piperitum, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) and Pulsatilla Koreana as natural preservatives. The moisturizing ingredients are Avocado oil, Olive oil, Propanediol (Corn) and Betaine (Beets). It’s plant base contains Rosemary, Morus Alba Bark, Sage, Spearmint, Chamomille, Sinica Root, Melissa Officinalis and Monarda Didyma Leaf. Also the inclusion of 5 certified USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) Organic plant-based extracts, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root, Rosa Damascena, Rhodiola Rosea root, Taraxum Officinale (Dandelion) and Olea Europaea (Olive) leaf.
This cleanser is also made with carbonated and sparkling water to aid in deep cleansing of the pores by supplying oxygen to the skin and helping control sebum secretion. The sparkling water comes the Cho Jung mineral springs which have a pH of 4.61.
@pamperurselfgreen and @mindyourbeauty ladies in the Instagram AB (Asian Beauty) community did test this product and received higher pH results. Debate came down to the water used to emulsify the foam but the cleanser itself is not low pH. It is only the sparkling water it is made with that has a low pH. Given the results, sensitive skin users were not as favored as manufacturer suggested. In my experience I did not break out but I did notice drying as I continued to use it everyday. I know double mask when I use this cleanser to preserve my skin barrier. If your skin is non sensitive this product is great!
