Camelliaskinensis review for The Minimum Facial Cleanser
The Minimum Facial Cleanser
💦 This is a pH-balancing facial cleanser that claims to be recommended for sensitive skin, and I bought this at a time my skin was super sensitive because of recurring seb derm attacks. 💦 This cleanser uses surfactants from coconuts and palms. Some people break out from coconut derived ingredients but this didn’t break me out (I did break out from something else made of coconut, will tell you about it in another post. 💦The bottle has a built in air-pump system so the cleanser is extra foamy (it’s been a while for me!), making it gentle on the skin without causing irritation. It turns a little creamy with a bit of massaging. 💦 It claims to be made of 90% natural ingredients, free from parabens, animal-originated ingredients, mineral oil, triethanolamine, polyacrylamide, silicone oil, PEG surfactants, imidazolidinyl urea, colorants, fragrances, and ethanol. 💦 I use this as my nighttime second cleanser, and use three pumps because I can afford to be generous with it, but 2 pumps is actually enough. 💦 It lives up to its claims, I have not gotten any irritation from using this cleanser and it cleans well enough as my cotton pad isn’t tracking any more dirt after I’ve cleansed with this.
While this doesn’t feel drying, I do prefer more emollient cleansers for my dry skin. It’s also apparently contraindicated for dermatitis so glad I didn’t open this while I was having a seb derm cycle. 💦 I won’t repurchase this because it doesn’t really address the issue I bought it for, but this might work for oily/normal/combo skin types experiencing sensitivity (that’s not dermatitis or eczema).
