I was lucky enough to receive this Orifera self-foaming cleanser from Amabie as part of their A-List giveaway in exchange for my honest review.
First, i love the packaging of this cleanser! It looks so clean and fresh. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle which makes it easy to travel with and i can see if i'm running low already. Second, i love the peppermint smell. i'm not really picky when it comes to products with fragrances as long as it isn't too overpowering. but i just love the minty fragrance of this one! it actually surprised me because i was expecting it to have a coconut like scent since it's made with virgin coconut oil.
about 1-2 pumps is enough to clean your entire face. the foam it creates is a bit different from other foaming cleansers such as the popular hada labo. whereas the hada labo looks more like a mousse, this one is slightly thinner in consistency and you can actually see the tiny bubbles. more like frothy milk. i tested the cleansing powers of this against my k-palette liquid liner, cyber colors gel liner, dolly wink liquid liner, maybelline cushion, and nars cream blush. you don't need to rub so hard to get rid of the makeup and it removed about 90-95% of it. so as a second cleanser, this works great!
as for the other properties of this cleanser, aside from organic extra virgin coconut oil, it also contains vitamin c, arbutin, and glutathione -- all known for their whitening and brightening properties. i'm not so sure about the ph level of this one but considering it has all these whitening/brightening ingredients, my skin does not feel dry or tight after every time i use it. quite the opposite actually because it feels soft yet clean.
good job orifera! and thanks to amabie for sending this!
