For the longest time, I have wanted to try a different type of cleanser. My preferred makeup removal method is micellar water and a cotton pad, but it produces so much waste. I go through so many cotton pads, I wanted to give something new a try. If you haven’t heard of Fresh Beauty, then you should Google them. Their Soy Face Cleanser is extremely popular among social media influencers and YouTubers, and because of the amazing review, I decided to give this a go. I was in between this one and the Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser, but I’ve seen mixed reviews of that one. With the release of the limited edition packaging, I decided it was meant to be. If you’ve been curious about this cleanser, or if you’re interested in trying new cleansers, then make sure you keep on reading!
This is a limited edition packaging, and isn’t it the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? I almost don’t want to use it up. As any other skincare, the packaging is pretty simple. I like the tube style because it is a lot more hygienic than when you have to scoop out the product. Here you just squeeze it out and that’s it. For this Soy Face Cleanser limited edition packaging, they released it in a jumbo size. Their standard size is not this big. I have only been using it for a little over a month, but I am curious to see how long it lasts. With micellar water, I am used to going through a bottle every couple of months.
Okay. So. I have determined that I am not the biggest fan of soy scented products. I had experienced something similar when trying samples of other Fresh products, but I didn’t know what it was about them. Now, I know. It’s the soy. It isn’t super strong so I have gotten used to it, but I am more of an artificial scent type of person. If you’re sensitive to scents and fragrances in skincare, then this would be good for you! It is very natural.
Does It Work?
YES. YES. I was hesitant about this because other balm cleansers I had used made my vision blurry for a few minutes. I was afraid this would sting my eyes, but do not worry about that! It is so gentle and works so well. I don’t have any trouble removing eye makeup with this. Please note I do not use waterproof mascara, so I am not sure how it would work with that. I would definitely pair this with another cleanser. What I do use a makeup balm to remove my face makeup, and then use the soy face cleanser to remove whatever is left on my skin and my eye makeup. Works great! If you want to use just one cleanser, that’s fine, but I would use it twice. Once to remove makeup, and a second time to make sure it is all off.
Would I Purchase Again?
Yes! I have been loving this cleanser! It has actually lasted more than I thought it would. It is so gentle on my skin and I do feel my skin being a lot cleaner (?) when I use this.
