I did the 28 Your Good Skin challenge when the brand first launched in 2017. Since then I have repurchased the SPF30 moisturizer a LOT and recommended it to so many people. Your Good skin is a good budget-friendly brand so when I was looking for a balmy cleanser I made sure to check it out.
I picked the YourGood Skin Comforting Gel Cleanser which is now finished so I can bring you my full review!
What the brand says
WORKING WITH YOUR “SKIN”
This transforming gel gently melts away make-up, excess oil & daily impurities.
THE “GOOD” THINGS
From first use, skin looks healthy & feels instantly nourished. Skin feels smooth, supple & moisturized. Proven to give you more good skin days. Formulated without parabens & fragrance-free. Dermatologically tested & suitable for all skin, even sensitive.
This was my first cleanse in my evening double cleansing routine. This cleanser is a gel which transforms into oil then emulsifies into milk. It has a mild scent but I did not experience any irritation.
This cleanser does great to remove traces of makeup, grime and oils. I use a fair amount of the gel and massage it on dry skin till it turns into an oil. How long this takes depends on the amount I dispense. Once it turns into oil, it moves around easily on the skin. They describe it as a ‘light oil’ but I don’t think the oil feels light on the oil. After massing for a few seconds, I add a bit of warm water to start emulsifying it. I keep doing this until it turns into milk then rinse it away with warm water. I found that using cold or room temperature water doesn’t emulsify it properly and after rinsing leaves a residue on the skin. Rinsing the milk away with warm water leaves a slight residue on the skin.
The main ingredients in this cleanser are the same across the brand, it’s been formulated with green tea, bisabolol and vitamin C.
I do like this cleanser and I think it’s the drugstore dupe for the Beauty Pie Japanfusion cleanser which I love. They are similar in terms of texture but the main difference is that the BP Japanfusion leave rinses away clean and it’s easier to turn into an oil and milk.
This is a great cleanser but it has to be removed with warm water. It does well with removing makeup and SPF. Whilst it leaves some residue on the skin, my second cleanser is able to pick this up.
The member’s price for the BeautyPie cleanser is the same as this one however non-members pay the full price which is £25. If you don’t want to join BeautyPie, the comforting Gel cleanser is your best bet.
I will recommend this as a 1st cleanse in the evening only and go in with a second cleanser to remove the residue. Sticking with the brand, I recommend the Refreshing Cleanser
YourGood Skin Comforting Gel Cleanser is £6 in Boots
