It has been a while since I last did a skincare product review as I had been blogging more on food recently. I hadn’t been buying new skincare products hence the lack of skincare updates. I am more of a stickler nowadays to the ones that do good to my skin. I stick to my basic essentials but alternating in between when it comes to makeup removers and facial cleansers.
My impression of fresh was limited in the beginning. Honestly speaking, I thought fresh is a Korean made skincare product but it was only later when I found that it’s an American made product. fresh has minimalist design and packaging. Despite so, they ain’t any cheaper than the regular Japanese or Korean skincare products which I had been using.
fresh Soy Face Cleanser
I bought this from the duty free shop at Singapore Changi Airport on my way back to Brunei back in July. I don’t use this as my regular cleanser due to it’s quantity. I find the size convenient for traveling. Hence I had been bringing this with me whenever I go Miri for an overnight stay or my vacation to Singapore.
I started using this on my Miri overnight trip back in September. Mom was telling me that she had forgotten to pack her facial cleanser in her overnight bag. I unsealed the packaging and handed her this to use. And guess what was Mom’s first impression of the said product after using it? She didn’t like the product as much as I do. She doesn’t like that the cleanser doesn’t lather into foams and it left her face feeling “oily” after rinsing.
True enough, the cleanser doesn’t lather like other facial cleansers do and that’s because the product came without sulfate. The texture is more towards the gel side instead of paste like texture. Fragrant wise, it is cucumber scented which smells refreshing for me.
I like that the cleanser is not harsh on my skin. When I had my first makeover back in September, I used this facial cleanser to remove all makeup after Laneige Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil. I am extremely pleased with the outcome after having removed all makeup. The facial cleanser managed to clean the last trace of makeup and dirt off my face very well, leaving a clean, clear, soft and supple skin after wash.
So, here’s what I think of fresh Soy Face Cleanser in a nutshell:
1. Mild and gentle cleanser without stripping the skin’s moisture.
2. Refreshing cucumber scent.
3. Leaves a clean, clear, soft and supple skin after wash.
4. Removes traces of makeup and dirt off very well.
2. Not available locally.
