Creamy, not foamy; don't like it for morning use
on July 28, 2014
I have almost finished using my first tube of this cleanser, and haven't decided yet whether I like it enough to coninue. The pros and cons for me are almost balanced, but I think this is a product that most people either really like or don't.
This is a creamy cleanser, not a foaming one. It squeezes from the tube like toothpaste, not liquid, and it remains creamy on your face as you wash. My main issue is that my face doesn't feel "clean" once I rinse the cleanser off; I realize this is because it leaves behind a thin moisturizing layer of protection. I prefer to have a freshly-scrubbed face after washing, and then proceed with separate moisturizers/serums. I am finding that I end up over-scrubbing my face with a washcloth to rinse, which is not optimal.
I do really like the feel of the fine granules in the cleanser, and my face feels much smoother than it did before I started using this product, so that's a good result. I've started using this cleanser only at bedtime instead of in the morning (where it seemed too greasy for makeup application), and will see if my skin still stays smooth under that modified regimen. Users with dry skin will probably have no issue using it as an everyday cleanser.
