Plush and effective
I don't use the pregame primer, so I use this cleanser as a second step in my 2 step cleansing routine (oil cleanser first to remove makeup like eyeliner, etc. and this is the 2nd cleanser to wash off everything). I love the texture of this product, it foams up to a nice, plush lather and feels luxurious on the face. Due to the nice lather, I feel like it adheres well to my skin and has a nice slip. I don't really find the tea leaves very useful in this product though, since it doesn't really do any real exfoliation or anything, so I personally would have preferred it without the tea leaves, but since there are typically only a few in a dollop, I just kind of disregard them. I've tried this to remove my makeup and while it does fine with face products like my concealer/blush, it had a harder time with my tough eyeliner, so I prefer using my oil cleanser for that. After using this face wash, my skin feels very clean, but not stripped or dry. I've not noticed any irritation or adverse reactions to this product on my acne-prone skin. Overall, I've really enjoyed using this face wash and it goes great in my routine.
