Fresh Soy Face Cleanser; Gimme or Gimmick?
Normally it takes a week or more to begin seeing or feeling changes in your skin once you switch products, but this little miracle worker got right to work.
I hate cleansers that leave your skin with a tight, dry, hard-feeling; the Soy Face Cleanser does the opposite. The morning after I first used it, I already noticed my skin felt smooth and softer, no tightness or dryness. I'm always up for trying products that promote a healthy, clean complexion, and the Soy Face Cleanser is definitely one of those skin care products that delivers, and I also like that a little product goes a long way. Bonus points for the Soy Face Cleanser for removing make-up too... I noticed I didn't have traces of waterproof mascara on my lashes as I normally would when using other facial cleansers!
The scent isn't extremely powerful but it does have a light, cucumber and rose-water scent. I do have to warn you though, the consistency is unlike most cream or foaming cleansers because this is a soy gel. You will notice it is a cloudy gel similar to Cetaphil's cleanser, however this has a much more slippery feel. Forget it, I'll be completely honest with you, it reminds me of um... "man juice"! LOL Think about it... soy = protein, man juice = protein too. Now, I know what you're thinking... but honestly it isn't that bad! I just couldn't think of anything else to compare it to! LOL
What two words would I use to describe the Soy Face Cleanser? Gentle and pure.
Gimme or Gimmick? Definite Gimme!
