Gift Review: Kracie Naive Facial Cleansing Foam

I'm really in a beauty rut right now. Although I had decided a year or so ago to "use my stash", it has become a bit ridiculous. I'm even too lazy to replace my favorite staples, which is a good thing for using my stash and perhaps my wallet but is making me a bit boring as I don't go out to shop and find new things to try.

Fortunately, I have some wonderful friends who have sent me love packages with products to pique my interest. One of the items I have received is the newest Kracie Naive Facial Cleansing Foam with Royal Jelly and Rose Essence. This was released earlier this year.

From Rakuten's website, this is the ingredient list:

Water, cocoil glycine K, vaseline, glycerin, hydroxypropyl starch phosphoric acid, lauric acid, ラウロアンホ acetic acid Na, lye re-Reitz copolymer, ラウラミドプロピルベタイン, hydroxylated K, glycosyl trehalose, acetylglucosamine, rose extract, royal jelly extract, Shea fat, astropotassium Murr Murr fat, macademia nut fatty acid フィトステリル, polyglutaminic acid, guar hydroxypropyl trimonium chloride, ポリクオタニウム -7, BG, hydrolysis hydrogenation starch, β-glucan, PG, bamboo pipe-stem Lil sulfuric acid Na, EDTA-2Na, phenoxyethanol, benzoic acid Na, fragrance

The cleansing foam is formulated with royal jelly and rose extracts for soft, supple skin. The two extracts promote moisture in the skin and has a very subtle floral scent. It bubbles up quickly and creates a nice foam. Even after rinsing, my skin feels nicely moisturized and doesn't tighten up. It is paraben free and hypoallergenic. In general, I really like Naive cleansing products. Prior to receiving and using this, Aloe was my favorite facial cleansing foam but I find that this is even more hydrating than aloe. There is a blue version as well and it is for rich moist smooth skin, whiie this yellow version is for rich moist soft skin.

An added benefit (well, to me anyway) is that my absolute favorite JPop singer helps to promote this line. Here is the CM:

I also use the Aloe body wash!

I really like it a lot. The best thing about these products is that they are very lightly scented, which is something that I like. I used to really like Victoria Secrets and Bath and Body Works products but have found that they are now too strongly scented for my liking.

Thank you Yumeko for sending this to me earlier this year. I appreciate your asking me about it and asking if I had seen the CM for it, which I hadn't at the time. I really like this cleansing foam and it is now my favorite!

I totally feel your rut, I've been using up my stash too. If only eye shadow would get used up quickly lol.
This face wah sounds lovely, I'll have to add it to my "to try" list. :)

Color makeup takes forever to use up! Wish that I wasn't in such a rut! Don't know what's wrong with me.

The face wash is a definite "have to try". I really love it a lot.

Hope that all is well with you.

I use this face wash, too! I agree, it feels so nice, and the scent is light. I even bought extras for my mom, mother-in-law, sister, and sister-in-law!

@CL--It's awesome, isn't it? How great that you picked up extras for your family.
