Gift Review: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

A friend of mine. who is into more high end cosmetics and skincare but isn't totally obsessed by it, gave me Fresh Soy Face Cleanser as a belated Christmas present. When I had purchased my Clarisonic almost a year and a half ago, I mentioned it to her and she told me that she had purchased something else (which I can't remember what it was) that was supposed to lift and smooth your skin. That was about as much of our conversation. I was so surprised when she mentioned to me that she heard it was the new cleanser that was being recommended for use with the Clarisonic. I didn't think that she had remembered that I purchased the Clarisonic.



It is a soap-free cleanser which is good for all skin types. It removes makeup and any impurities that your face may have come into contact with during the day. Soybean extract is a protein that helps to protect the skin and improve the texture and resiliency. It also helps the skin to retain moisture and elasticity and keep a smooth appearance.

This facial cleanser is of a gel consistency and it foams up moderately. I can't attest to whether or not it removes makeup since I have a makeup removal routine already. It does seem to leave my face with a moisturized feeling after washing. I do use it with my Clarisonic and it is okay, however, I do like to use facial cleaners that foam up well when I use my Clarisonic. If I don't use something that has foamed up well, then it feels like the brush isn't working as smoothly and may actually be a little too rough on my skin. To me, the scent of it is a little funky but it's not overpowering.

thats so nice of her :) too bad it doesn't foam much to be used well with the clarisonic.

foam cleansers always make me feel 'cleaner' after washing :) something psychological perhaps

@heartbreaker--Yeah, I really wished that it foamed up better. Other than that, it's a nice face cleanser.

@Jennifer--I agree with you. I also feel cleaner when cleaners (including shampoo) have foamed up.

@Nic Nic--It's a nice cleanser to use without the Clarisonic. Thank you for the Mother's Day wishes!
