Review: The Face Shop BlackHead EX Clear Cleansing Foam1:26:00 PM
Hello, this is a review request :)
This product review was requested by my blogger friend Bella (Christabella Nathania) who commented on my sasa.com haul post back in April in which I shared about my hauls from SASA, and this cleansing foam is one of the purchases I made back then from SASA.
This BlackHead Ex Clear Cleansing Foam is from the well known Korean brand "The Face Shop". I also listed this product as one of my Favorite product in my April Favorites post.
So here is a quick review of the product:
I bought this Cleansing Foam at Sasa.com for $8,2 and the tube is pretty big (it's 150ml). I was looking for a new face cleanser to use in the shower, and the reason why I chose this one is because I've read somewhere that this cleanser is suitable for reducing blackheads especially on the nose. And I also read that this cleanser can also be used as soft scrub for your face. I was also looking for a light scrub that I can use everyday without drying out my skin, so I made up my mind and bought this product.
The back of this product packaging is fully written in Korean so I really have no idea what it says ;p But I love the medium big size of the tube, it's really worth the $8,2 ;p
And I also love how it's so easy to use because of the shape of the tube (although later on I found that the cap is not sturdy enough, now it won't flip closed properly, leaving a small gap - which is actually didn't really matter ;p), and the fact that I can use this as a daily face wash as well as a daily soft scrub for my face without making my skin dry.
(My skin type : Combination Oily)
The reason why I put this on my Favorite Product list back in April is because I find it really helpful in reducing my large pores and also helps keep the blackheads away. At the time when I bought this cleansing foam I was also having weird problems with really large pores around my nose (which I have never experienced before). But as I told you above that's not the reason why I bought this product at the first place. I bought it because I was in need of a soft scrub that I can use daily. But then after about a week of use, I noticed that after I changed my usual face wash with this cleansing foam I found that those super large pores around my nose are gone! Wow, I didn't realize that this cleansing foam can also do that! So I was very surprised and continue using this cleansing foam up until now ;)
The texture of this cleansing foam is a bit thick and foamy, and it has this little tiny granules in it which I think are the scrubs. The granules are so tiny and you almost couldn't feel it during application, but your face would feel fresh and thoroughly clean afterward :)

The After Result:
I love the texture which is so soft on the skin but yet it gives you that thorough clean feeling afterward (without the dryness!). It doesn't irritate my skin even if I use it everyday, morning and night ;) ...
I also love the fact that it can double functions as a daily soft scrub for my face. And although I don't see any great impact with my blackheads condition (as the name of this product suggests), but I saw great results in reducing the large pores and it keep my pores healthy up until today ^__^
Overall, I love this Cleansing Foam.
It came in a large tube so it lasts long enough (I've been using it on and off for about 4 months and the tube is still half full ;p). I would probably buy this again in the future. I saw this product on The Face Shop counter at Metro PIM 1 and the price is about the same as in SASA so I might probably get it at the local counter next time ;)
