This is a very lovely product. I’d used it up so quickly that I even forgot to talk about it here.
Fresh point out 4 key ingredients of this product:
Amino acid-rich soy proteins help maintain elasticity and healthy skin.
Rosewater is notable for its calming and balancing properties.
Calming cucumber extract aids in soothing the skin.
Borage seed oil helps to nourish. (fresh.com)
To sum up the claims, it is a hydrating cleanser packed with various ingredients to nourish and hydrate the skin. Usually, such a product would be thick and creamy, but this one is light and non-foaming gel. On top of that, it smells like cucumbers whenever I used this product I wanted to eat cucumbers. The smell was not overpowering, but just very realistic, simply delicious.
The cleanser was very pleasant to use. It was gentle, it cleansed my skin and left it hydrated, not dry and stripped of moisture. It is light-weight, so it isn’t the best choice to remove layers of sunscreen or makeup. It was my go-to cleanser last summer, and even though I had purchased the small tube, it lasted for a long time. I would say it’s suitable for all skin types, there are plenty of hydrating ingredients like glycerin, various oils, aloe vera and cucumber extracts, and many others, so the cleanser should satisfy even people with dry skin. There are also soy amino acids, which help to moisturise skin, and they act as antioxidants. I would say that there are a lot of beneficial ingredients in the product. Also, the cleanser shouldn’t be a problem for people with acne-prone skin; it has a light consistency, and if you wash it off well (which is relatively easy to do) there will be no worries. There is a smell to the product, but I think it’s the cucumber extract rather than anything else since there’s no fragrance added. So if your skin is reactive to artificial fragrance, you should be fine, given you don’t have an allergy to anything else in the product.
Overall, it’s a hydrating and light cleanser packed with a lot of beneficial ingredients. It is full of moisturising and nourishing ingredients, which your skin will appreciate. It doesn’t lather and doesn’t dry out the skin; instead, it leaves your skin clean and happy. Suitable for all skin types, though not the best at removing heavy stuff. My only complaint is that it’s hard to find the product in continental Europe, other than that it’s a great product.

While you’re here, I want to ask all of you a favour. I am petitioning for a ban on sunbeds in the EU; the Petitions Committee approved my petition last Friday, and it’s now available to supporters. I would love it if you could support my petition on the EU’s petitions website – here. Unfortunately, you have to register on the EU’s petitions website – I know it’s a dealbreaker for many people, so it’s ok if you don’t want to. Also, you don’t have to be an EU citizen/resident to register. If you have any questions regarding my petition or the registration process, please do not hesitate to ask; you can contact me via email, Instagram, and Weibo. I really appreciate any help you can provide.
