Key Ingredient – Mild Surfactants, Virgin Marula Oil
Price – $46/150ml
Free of SLS, fragrance and essential oils, Beste No. 9 is non-irritating, non-sensitizing and appropriate for every skin type.
This cleanser is very gentle on skin, it does not feel too drying or leave skin feeling tight after cleansing. It has a gel-like texture that lathers well and massages into skin comfortably. A plus point for sensitive skin users is that it is completely fragrance and essential oil free thus lowering any potential chance of irritation. Cleanses away impurities effectively. It is pretty hydrating considering the purpose of the product is to cleanse. It is supposed to be a one-step cleanser that can effectively remove makeup, excess oil and impurities. Me, being slightly obsessed with a thorough cleanse, I am not one to skip double cleansing when wearing makeup so I can’t speak to its ability in removing makeup.
Overall, I love when a product delivers what it claims! I would prefer if it is more reasonably priced as cleansers are usually in the range of $20 – $30 SGD. This is considered as a higher end cleanser.
Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser
This is my personal favorite, it is super gentle, non=stripping and has a unique jelly-like texture that makes cleansing so much more satisfying.
Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
A very affordable no frills gel cleanser that contains salicylic acid to gently exfoliate and clear out excess sebum clogging the pores. I use this once in awhile when I feel like I want a deeper cleanse. It is gentle, but not as hydrating as Drunk Elephant Beste Cleanseror Krave Beauty Matcha Hemp Cleanser
It is a good product, but definitely over-priced for something that has a common formulation. There are tons of hydrating cleansers available in the market that works similarly.
Verdict – Will only repurchase the mini because it is great for traveling and readily available at Sephora.
