Description :

Deskripsi kemasan : 
Pembersih wajah 2 Fase : Pembersih wajah 2 fase dengan moisturizer alami untuk membersihkan wajah. Tidak mengandung alcohol.


Ingredients :
Jojoba Oil, Methyl Dibromoglutaronitrile + Phenoxyethanol, Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane + Decamethylcyclopentasiloxane, Isoprophyl Myristate, Mineral Oil, Butylene Glycol, Isohexadecane, Cl 42090, Perfume, Purified Water.

Just got it yesterday, I bought it for Rp. 25.000 (around $27) at Sophie Counter in Royal Plaza Surabaya, actually I wanted to buy fairness cleanser (which I already reviewed before), but this product attracted me since it did not contain alcohol. Well, sounds good eh…

It’s a 2 phase liquid so u have to shake it well before using it. The texture is watery. It has fragrance in it which is medium scented, I personally don’t like the smell.
Well, seems like I did not read the ingredients list, it contains mineral oil. U can say that I’m allergic to mineral oil since products with mineral oil always broke me out, they clogged my pores.
First time I tried it to remove my BB cream, I feel that it’s cleansing power is not that good. I like Sophie Martin Fairness cleansing milk better than this one. With this make up remover I have to wipe my face using cotton several times until clean enough. I don’t think it will be good enough to remove heavy or waterproof make up with this. I did not experience tight or squeaky feeling on my skin after using, this cleanser left my face moisturized. Too bad after the second using this I got pimple on my cheek, on the third usage I was pretty sure that it clogged my pores coz another zit appeared. The zits stopped to appear as I stopped using this product. I gave it up to my friend from office and she’s doing fine with it.

Pros :
- Non-alcohol
- Did not dry on skin
- Moisturizing
- Contain Jojoba Oil as the top first on the ingredient list

Cons :
- Poor cleansing power
- Contain phenoxyethanol as the top second on ingredient list
- Clogging my pores
- Fragrance and coloring
- Wont suit sensitive skin I guess since it fragrenced and got phenoxyethanol in the top 2 in ingredient list

Who may like this :
- Dry – Normal skin
- only for removing light makeup
- who can tolerate mineral oil in skin care
Who may not like this :
- Oily skin
- Waterproof or heavy make up user
- Sensitive skin (since it fragranced, colored, Phenoxyethanol as the top second ingredient)

Will I repurchase? Sorry, Sophie, I like ur other products but not with this. Definitely No.

What do you think? Has anyone ever tried it before? Mind to tell ur story to me? Leave comment below : )

Hmm, iya murah sih murah. Tapi aq udah ngga pakai lagi, say, aq lebih prefer sama pixy gentle clensing 2in1 botol biru itu yg juga non alkohol dan lebih murah dari ini.
Hope my review can help :)
