Review: The Face Shop Herb Day Cleansing Foam

Hello my beautiful viewers. Are you in the search for a new facial cleanser?

A few months back, I was looking for a cleanser that was not so expensive, good yet gentle enough to be used with my Olay ProX Cleansing System. Since I wanted to try new Korean products I came upon The Face Shop’s 365 Herb Day Cleansing Foam. It had multiple flavors to choose from, but I chose spearmint, not realizing it was the male version of the cleanser.

Neata dragutelor. Sunteti in cautare de un nou cleanser?

Acum cateva luni cautam un cleanser care nu fie foarte scump, bun, dar totusi suficient de  delicat ca sa poata fi folosit cu sistemul meu Olay ProX. Din moment ce vroiam sa incerc noi produse coreene am gasit Spuma de Curatare cu Ierburi 365 de la The Face Shop.  Avea multiple arome din care puteam sa aleg si am ales menta, pe moment fara sa-mi dau seama ca era versiunea pentru barbati a cleanserului.

Description / Descriere:

A natural cleanser for men, which washes off oily impurities in pores (contains nine herbs formula and spearmint, with cooling effect. Also removes residuals)

Un cleanser pentru barbati, care curata impuritatile din pori (contine o formula bazata pe noua ierburi si menta, cu efect de racire. De asemenea elimina reziduurile).

Skin type/ tip de piele: all skin type / toate tipurile

Application/ Aplicare:

Get adequate amount for foam. Gently place it all over the face and rinse it off with clean water.

Luati o cantitate adecvata, aplicati pe fata si dupa clatiti cu apa.

Opinion/ Parere:

As far as cleansers go, it’s decent. I don’t have much experience in the matter, but it does the job and it doesn’t leave my face squeaky (in case you didn’t know, a squeaky face is bad because while it means it removed all the residue, it also removed all the natural oils and barrier the face produces and as a result your face will produce more oils and get greasy fast).

Ca cleanser, e decent. Nu am multa experienta in domeniu, dar isi face treaba si nu lasa fata sa scartaie- stiti voi, senzatia aia ciudata cand cleanserul e prea puternic (in cazul in care nu stiati, aparent nu e bine pentru ca desi inseamna ca a eliminat toate impuritatile, a luat de asemenea si stratul protector secretat de fata si ca rezultat fata va produce mai mult ulei si va deveni oily repede).

The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleanser Consistency

The consistency is creamy and it doesn’t live up to what it claimed as it doesn’t lather up- it remains creamy while applying it, but for me it was better this way as it was perfect to use with my face brush.

Consistenta e cremoasa si nu face ce promite, adica sa faca spuma- ramana cremoasa la aplicare, dar pentru mine e mai bine asa pentru ca e perfect de folosit cu o perie de fata.

The smell is nice, but I wished it smelled more like spearmint. It’s a hard to define scent: creamy and unobtrusive.

Mirosul e ok, dar vroiam sa miroasa mai tare a menta. Are un miros greu de definit: cumva cremos si subtil.

Overall it’s very nice: not to strong and perfect for a sensitive skin.

Per total e ok: nu prea puternic si perfect pentru piele sensibila.

PROS:

  • for all skin types, including oily and sensitive / pentru toate tipurile de piele, inclusiv ten gras si sensibil
  • creamy and not too strong / cremos si nu prea puternic
  • can be used with a face brush / poate fi folosit cu o perie de fata electrica
  • subtle smell / miros subtil

CONS:

  • it’s not a foam like it said in the description an it doesn’t lather up / nu e o spuma cum spune descrierea
  • the smell seems generic, I wish it smelled more like mint /  mirosul e generic, vroiam sa miroasa mai mult a menta

Price/ Pret: 6.33$ ebay

Would I repurchase/ L-as re-cumpara:

Not yet. There are so many other options I wanna try first. But it’s an excellent start.

Nu inca. Sunt atatea cleansere pe care vreau sa le incerc intai. Dar ma declar multumita de alegerea facuta.
