My relationship with First Aid Beauty so far has been less than impressive, from my first ever review of their popular Radiance facial pads and Ultra Hydrating Mist to most recently their Deep Cleanser, everything has been meh for me until now. I picked up the LookFantastic discovery box in January and I was re-introduced to the brand.
What the brand says
A fragrance-free, gentle cleanser that effectively removes makeup, dirt and grime, leaving skin soft and supple. The whipped texture transforms into a sumptuous cream when blended with water.
Infused with a powerful Botanical Antioxidant blend, it helps safeguard skin against environmental aggressors while also calming irritated skin. This non-stripping, pH-balanced formula works to maintain skin’s natural acidity and helps reduce flare ups, never leaving skin feeling tight or dry.
The discovery box came with a travel size cleanser which I used both in the morning and in the evening as my second cleanser. I think it lasted me a little over 2 weeks. I’ve finished the tube now. I don’t remember it having a strong scent and it’s free from artificial fragrance anyway.
So this cleanser, I absolutely LOVE! I’m probably among the very few bloggers that love when a cleanser suds up! This one produces a gentle lather with a fair amount but its easy to rinse away. It removes traces of the oil left over by my balm cleanser in the evening, dirt, excess oils and grime from the day. My skin is left clean but not tight or dry. It doesn’t feel stripped but nice and comfortable. The cleanser doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. I also like it for morning use especially because of their FAB antioxidant booster. It works well on damp or dry skin.
The cleanser also has some great ingredients. Their FAB antioxidant booster is Licorice Root, Feverfew and White Tea extracts. I love anything with antioxidants because it helps to protect the skin from environmental aggressors. Licorice root also has some skin brightening properties although I won’t say the cleanser brightened my skin but it doesn’t clean that anyway. It also has glycerin, aloe and allantoin to calm, soothe and hydrate the skin.
Finally a product from First Aid Beauty I love! This is for dry or sensitive skin but I have normal to combination oily skin and the cleanser worked very well for it. It cleansed my skin well enough to balance my tzone. My skin was never dry or tight with it and most of the time (it should be all the time) I follow the 60sec cleansing method. I love the gentle lather it produces and it feels so soft and gentle on the skin.
I will definitely look to getting this again in the future! Highly recommended! Can’t wait to use the other stuff in the box.
