I received a sample set of SK-II products from my mum few months ago when she switched her skincare to SK-II. Gosh she was my enabler, in the end I follow her suit after trying this set of SK-II key products. I have been incorporating these items in my daily skincare and I will be reviewing them one by one.
SK-II Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser comes in a squeeze tube with small nozzle just like any other conventional facial wash. The one I’ve been using is the sample size which contains 15g worth of product. This sample lasts me for quite a while, about 2 weeks day and night use. It’s a creamy cleanser which lathers well, I usually just need a dollop and it’s already sufficient. It’s lightly fragrant, it doesn’t bother me but to those are sensitive might want to reconsider. I do find the scent to be calming, lavender-ish like scent, if such word even exist :P.
Performance wise it does clean up any makeup residue really well (note that I double cleanse every evening, I use cleansing oil prior to using facial wash). It doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight which most foamy cleanser does. Nonetheless I don’t think I will be splurging on facial cleanser knowing that there are many others perform just as well with just fractions of the price. It’s pretty hefty price tag just for something that goes down the drain. This cleanser is paraben-ladden for those who are concerned.
This foamy cleanser reminds me of Lancome Absolue Premium Bx Advanced Creamy Foam Cleanser. It lathers just as well, smells similar and does the same job. However I still can’t justify myself to pay so much just for something I rinse every other use (me being el cheapo). For now I will stick to my Kiehl’s Ultra Facial cleanser.
Pros: lathers well, gentle to skin, lightly scented, cleanse well
Cons: not paraben-free, considerably pricey for cleanser
