I love this cleanser. One of my holy grails. I have repurchased this product multiple times. I love how gentle it is on the skin, mainly because I use a [product:foreo-luna(tm)-fofo-fuchsia] Facial Cleaning device that really gives me a deep cleanse after I use my oil cleanser to break down makeup, so I need a balanced cleanser that just does its job. This price point is unparalleled to anything I have ever used. The pH balance is phenomenal. I have very dry and sensitive skin, this is not irritating in the slightest. My roommate is hooked on it as well, and she has oily-combination skin, so it really does meet the claims it makes. It’s suitable for ALL skin types and a great daily cleanser.
While I was in university, i struggled in finding a cleanser which didn't irritate my skin but still cleaned it well. This is that product! I changed so many brands and finally can settle down with this lovely one :) My skin is combined skin with acnes and this cleanser helps a loooooootttttt in calming it without irritation and dehydration. I didn't expect much cause I was to the point of feeling hopeless in finding a perfect cleanser for my skin. But this product came to me by chance and i am thankful for it existence, truthfully.
A month ago I was using the CosRx salicylic daily gentle cleanser and I was looking for an alternative because of it had a pretty high ph level. So I bought this for a try and it did not disappoint! It’s great for evening cleansing too, but just make sure to follow up with a toner. It leaves my skin feeling smooth. You don’t need to squeeze a lot to use. I have acne prone skin, and this lessened the irritations. I’d repurchase this again!
It’s not the kind of cleanser that’s designed to remove blackheads or the magical cure for acne, nor does COSRX claim for it to be.
It’s designed to be a good everyday cleanser that significantly reduces daily dirt, dust and grime from your everyday life. In fact, the cleanser does a pretty good job removing light to moderate makeup. It washed off the eyeshadow on my hand really easily but the liquid liner required a fair bit of a rub and scrub.
So I would definitely stick with an oil based eye makeup remover for that.
My moisture meter agrees that it is quite the gentle cleanser. It doesn’t seem to strip all the moisture away from my skin after a clean.
All in all, it’s a lovely product that’s super affordable. It’s a no nonsense cleanser that definitely gets the job done.
There isn’t anything miraculous about it but for something that’s so everyday, that’s kind of how I like it. I don’t need such intense brightening, cleansing etc effects out of a cleanser that I use everyday - the more intense cleansers I only use around 1-2 times a week.
This is enough to help maintain skin cleanliness, remove excess oil, keep pores relatively unclogged and remove most of my sunscreen and makeup. The ingredients are clean as well which is the cherry on top!
I would have loved for the cleanser to be formulated without sodium benzoate though.
