So, a few weeks ago I was searching for a new cleanser to replace my Nature Republic Snail Herb Foaming Cleanser, which I love AND I love it’s only like $3. But I don’t love the only place I know I can repurchase in the US is in LA and /possibly/ a small Asian Beauty store in Kent, MI where I stumbled upon it on a vacation.
What intrigued me about this cleanser was it’s ingredient list and price. It was $20 and doesn’t have a single synthetic ingredient in it. (I even had 2 of my co-workers to purchase it solely off the ingredients list after showing them)
Some things to note about this cleanser:
Second ingredient is fermented green tea leaves and you can see them steeping at the bottom of the bottle, nice reassurance you’re cleanser that’s already based with antioxidant-rich Camellia (green tea) water is even more antioxidant—y….
Rich in a handful of other ferments
Still backed with clinical ingredients like: Hyaluronic acid for water retention, enzymes for light exfoliation, I saw Panthenol and Allantoin in there as well as Niacinamide being listed as an active ingredient (which to note is weird and not normal.) These few ingredients are incredible at conditioning the skin in various ways as you may have read about in my other posts. But expect increased skin cell turnover leading you to a porcelain smooth complexion
So we have a cleanser packed full of potent ingredients, but how does it feel??? The cleanser rubs in great, creating a nice rich green tinted froth. The smell is subtle, but fresh and perfect to wake up to. It leaves the skin feeling very “matte” I have to say. Not the same as that nasty dry and tight feeling you get from using bar soap or another non-pH balanced cleanser but doesn’t leave a feeling of moisture behind say like an milk cleanser. Which isn’t really a complaint, just to note if you’re on the drier side like me.
Overall I’m really enjoying the cleaner, no irritation, dryness even with the overwhelming ingredient list.
