Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser Review

Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser Review

So Formula 10.0.6 has been around for a while but I only heard of them last Christmas when I received the Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser in a secret Santa gift. So naturally, I did some research and found out they have an extensive range of stuff and it’s very budget friendly. The Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser is also one of their popular products.

I was confused though as to what I could use the Pore Cleanser for. I am so used to foaming cleansers so I thought this was some type of deep cleansing toner so I used it for that for a while but I found out it’s a non-rinsing cleanser and that’s when my “love” for it began (lol)

Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser is a non-rinse cleanser and it wipes away dirt, excess oil and cleans pores. They also say it will exfoliate skin to help keep it super clear and healthy looking.


There’s a lot of pros and cons to this product and I understand why it may not work for everyone or people don’t like it.

The cleanser works. Period. I use it on lazy skincare routine days when I want to ensure all my makeup is off and my skin is clean but I don’t want to go through the hassle of washing my face etc. this cleanser will catch the last bits of makeup and dirt and leave your skin clean. I also like the fact that it has lactic acid which is a BHA to help exfoliate the dead skin cells.  On the other hand, the formula contains alcohol

On the other hand, the formula contains alcohol, in fact, it’s the 1st ingredient (2nd is water). The formula is also quite drying on the skin and I suspect it may be because of the alcohol. The scent of this product is super strong and overpowering. It has made my eyes water before. It’s almost strong as nail polish remover and a small amount is still strong and it’s a lingering scent. It’s slightly tingly and feels like a burning sensation too. I do follow this up with a water mist like Avenue thermal spring water mist to help balance and soothe my skin.


It’s a bittersweet experience for me with the Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser. On one hand, it saves time and provides a quick and easy solution to cleanse your skin. The no-rinse formula is excellent and for me, it’s the first product of this type. However, the scent and ingredients are unpleasant and can easily put people off. I don’t use this as often as I would have liked to but I do find it quite convenient sometimes.

I won’t recommend it for any other skin type except for oily skin types but I heard there’s another more forgiving formula of the cleanser too. Definitely stay away if you do not like strongly scented skincare products. I don’t think this will suit sensitive skin types. I’m happy it hasn’t caused any breakouts as I have read some reviews of it been too harsh on some people’s skin and causing breakouts. I will also recommend following this up with a water mist to help soothe your skin


It’s available in boots
