Hi everyone! This is my first skin product review and I’m super excited about it, so let’s get right into it.

This cleanser is an excellent product. When I first started using it during the summer of 2015, I instantly noticed a difference. My face looked refreshed and radiant, and my blemishes were starting to fade. I was in love. I would recommend this product to anyone, especially people with sensitive skin or eczema. Some things to keep in mind is, this product is drying so i would pair it with FAB’s Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Cream at night, which is actually more popular than the cleanser. Some people use the cream day and night, but I personally think the cream is too thick to wear during the day (winter is an exception). I don’t have eczema but many people with eczema rave about how much they adore this cream.

A little goes a long way, so the price of this cleanser is very reasonable. I included the ingredients because it’s always beneficial to familiarize yourself with what you’re putting on your face. Also, you may have allergies or your skin might not mesh well with certain oils or extracts. For example, I love dry brushing with coconut oil but it makes the skin on my face go nuts. According to Acne.org coconut oil is a 4 on the comedogenicity scale ( 0-5)- a list of ingredients that block your pores –  5 being the worst.

Makeup removal

This cleanser is an superb makeup remover. You can have a full face of makeup and it will take pretty much everything off ( with the exception of some eye makeup). The only reason why I didn’t give this product a 10/10 in terms of makeup removal is because this stuff hurts like a B**** if it gets into your eyes. After a night out, I usually take my makeup off with the cleanser and then remove the remaining eye makeup with a cotton pad. For a moisturizer I would use Belif’s Aquabomb.

My personal experience

I no longer use this product everyday but it’s still a staple in my beauty regimen reserved for the nights I come home after being caked up all day. Like serious cake. I started getting cystic acne earlier this year so I had to switch to a cleanser more geared toward acne-prone skin. Nowadays, I prefer cleansers that don’t foam unless it’s really hot out.

Conclusion

If you’re a makeup junkie looking for an effective, daily cleanser that foams and gets the job done (gently) in terms of cleaning up makeup, dirt and grime, you’ll love this product.  It also reduces inflammation, diminishes blemishes and leaves your skin smoother and radiant.
