Greetings darlings! How was your ‘boxing’ day shopping? I was amazed at the number of people in Edmonton now – the streets and malls all seem so much busier! And geez – Edmontonians love to shop! Needless to say, I’ve been enjoying the 5% sales tax, shopping essentially guilt-free :).
Anyway, during this trip I had just finished up my old facial cleanser, so decided to start trying the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser ($38) that I received as my free Sephora gift a little while back. I was excited to try this cleanser because it’s known to be super gentle and it contains a cocktail of skincare goodies such as soy proteins, rosewater, cucumber extract and borage seed oil.
The formula was light and indeed gentle, but I’m still not sure how I feel about the texture. I almost wished it was a little bit creamier so I could feel the oils in the formula dissolve my makeup more effectively (although that may be a figment of my imagination anyway). I was also a little turned off by the cucumber scent, but note that it’s probably an opinion unique to me. There’s something about a cucumber-engineered fragrance that I find disturbing, maybe even nauseating – even though I love the smell of real cucumbers! All in all, I thought the cleanser did a decent job of removing my makeup, but I just wasn’t enamored by the texture or the fragrance.
What do you think Beauty Nerds? Have you tried the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser? Would love to hear your thoughts…
