And here we have the face wash edition. Let it be noted, I have canary-in-the-coal-mine skin, and if there’s anything it can react to, it will. Especially face skin, since it can’t be hidden until it recovers. It says to the world: “Here is an inexplicable rash!” and “Oh my! I am covered in hives!”
For years, I used Dove as a face wash and self wash. Just the plain white Dove bar. I washed myself and my face with Dove, and you know, it’s reliable and doesn’t cause irritation. The end.
But why use what is reliable when I can try other more exciting things that could possibly cause a terrible rosacea flare-up?
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam & Light Cleansing Oil that’s a mouthful combo pack.
WTH is happening to Chessmen cookies?!?! Those are not chessmen.
Mmm. Bordeaux. Those were my favorites.
But back to Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam & Light Cleansing Oil. It’s gentle, but you feel like you’re actually clean. I LOVE the cleansing foam. Creamy and soft, but also light, and it doesn’t feel like you’re washing your face in lotion. I use the oil to take off the makeup I rarely wear. It will likely last forever. It has a nice smell that’s barely a smell, which I really appreciate.
The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam special set is an exciting three-pack that allows you to wash your face for ages without having to buy any new face wash. I kindly gave away the cherry, which was the one I was most excited about and was told it was great. Since I love Rice Water Bright, will I bother to purchase again so I can also try it? I mean. Probably.
The aloe had a nice fresh smell and doesn’t do anything terrible. Which is sometimes all you can ask for.
Is anyone else concerned that lemon things will actually bleach your skin? I still use the lemon one occasionally while worrying that I’m being bleached.
And I became really consumed with needing to try both of them. But they kept being sold out constantly. And then I finally got my mitts on Blueberry Bounce (and Watermelon Glow).
People are so into this. I’m not $34 worth of into it, myself. As an aside, the smell is not the smell of a ripe blueberry. It’s the smell of unripe, green blueberries. It smells OK. Kind of a sharp, astringent smell. It’s not bad. Just. Not exactly what you think of when you think blueberry.
Now that I’m reading the reviews again, it sounds like it’s magic, and I want to go wash my face in it immediately even though it did not do these things for me…
I gotta say, of all my beauty rituals, face wash might be the one I care the least about when it comes down to it…
