What happened to the days of simply cleaning with soap and water?
When I was younger, Dove was my homey. I washed my face with a face towel, cried a little when soap got into my eyes and then slapped some lotion on and went about my business. Real life. Now I’m older, I’m a little more stressed out, I have two kids and a husband and now I also have crows feet, hyperpigmentation, adult acne, and anger! Like how Sway? My family told me “black don’t crack” and they lied because this melanin needs maintenance. I’m constantly trying to get my skincare game together and trying to find products that work for me. The center of my face is oily and the rest of it is normal/dry and I have sensitivity in the eye and cheeks areas.
My hunt for a non-irritating cleanser that works well on my sensitive skin, removes my layers of makeup, doesn’t irritate my eyes and also doesn’t leave my skin feeling like tight snakeskin has led me back to an old favorite. This gel cleanser doesn’t foam, is stated to be extra-gentle, fragrance-free, soap-free and paraben free.
Soy Face Cleanser
Price: $38 USD for 5fl oz or $15 USD for 1.7fl oz
Final Thoughts: Do you need a $38 cleanser? Probably not and a drugstore cleanser might do the trick for you. As for me and this face of mine, I am loving this product and I will continue to repurchase it. It’s good, it fits my cleanser necessities and it has never left my skin feeling irritated. Now I want to be completely honest in saying this isn’t a do it all type of product so keep in mind that I don’t use this to completely remove my makeup. I use an oil to remove my makeup, then I follow that with the soy facial cleaner used with my Clarisonic. When using it in this way, I have noticed a positive change in my skin and it feels clean but still supple and glowy. My skin seems to be getting balanced again and my breakouts are less frequent. So shout out to you Fresh, because you now have a loyal customer.
