Size and Price
The bottle contains 150ML of product. I received this at no cost from BBCosmetic. It is available on BBCosmetic ($20), Amazon (~$20), or Memebox (currently on sale for $8).
(PS you can get 8% cash back from all memebox purchases from TopCashBack)

Packaging
I love the packaging for this cleanser. The cleanser is contained in a plastic bottle with a  pump mechanism. When you press down on the pump, it dispenses the cleanser which is pre-foamed for your convenience!

Fragrance
Smells like lemon peels. Not a scent I would’ve guessed that I would like, but I love it. It smells so fresh, so clean.

Color and texture
White and billowy foam.

pH
5.5

What’s in it? 

  • Cleansing Agents: TEA-COCOYL GLUTAMATE, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE 
  • SALICYLIC ACID
    Beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is a very effective chemical exfoliant, but cleansing products are poor delivery systems for it. Hydroxy acids require specific concentrations and pH ranges to work. You also need to keep it on your skin for more than the 30 seconds a cleanser touches your skin before you rinse it off.

Acne Triggers & Irritants
Full ingredients are on Cosdna, which identifies no acne triggers or potential irritants.

Performance

With cleansers, there is a spectrum of the effort it takes to get the cleanser ready to be put on your face. On one end, you have powder cleansers which require you to add your own water before working the cleanser into foam. On the other end are auto-foaming pump cleansers, like this one, which are as convenient and easy to use as you can get. I haven’t used a auto-foaming pump cleanser for awhile and this cleanser reminded me how much I appreciate the convenience.

However, the cleanser itself doesn’t jive with my skin. Despite its low pH I find it to be quite harsh. After use, my skin feels stripped of its natural oils and at times, even slightly aggravated.

I have since repurposed this face wash to clean makeup brushes. I have a few other reject-2nd-cleansers I use this way, including a Japanese drugstore foaming cleanser with a pH of NINE that is somehow less harsh (on my hands at least) than this one. Pretty bizarre but also a good reminder that low pH is just one of many requirements that go into making a gentle cleanser.

The Takeaway

The things I like about this cleanser are it’s convenient pump and its lemon peel scent. However, despite its appropriate acidity, I find this cleanser to be too harsh. If you’re in the market for a gentle cleanser, here’s one I like a lot and here are all my cleanser reviews.

Overall rating: 2.8/5
