St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser : A Redness And Acne Treatment Superstar

I am so glad that this hectic week is coming to an end, and that I can come back to blogging. As promised, I am bring you a review of one of my current favorite skincare product, St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser ($6.49).

More about the product : This cleanser deep cleans to gently remove dirt and make-up and helps maintain skin's moisture balance. Clears breakouts and reduces redness. Salicylic Acid Acne Medication With 100% Natural Green Tea.

I have been a loyal user of some of St. Ives' products such as its Invigorating Apricot Scrub ($6.54), so when I saw a praise of this new face cleanser from one of my favorite bloggers, I headed straight to my local CVS. This is formulated without Parabens and Phthalates, oil free, and hypo-allergenic, which is extremely suitable for oily and sensitive skin. This cleanser comes with a relaxing scent that is very gentle and not overpowering. It contains Salicylic Acid, which is very effective at acne treatment. What I especially love about this product is the fact that it is non-comedogenic, which means it will not clog pores.

This product leaves your face feeling clean and silky without that oily residue feeling. Unfortunately, the cleansing ability could need some improvement. This is a very decent cleanser if you wear moderate amount of makeups. However, if you wear a lot of waterproof eye makeups or heavy foundation, be prepare to rely on another cleanser afterward or repeat the cleansing process with this product twice. I usually use this cleanser in the morning, which is more than enough to remove all the dirt that accumulated on my face over night. It gets the job done without drying out my skin but still gives me that clean sensation.

I love this cleanser!!
But you should always use eye make-up remover specifically for the eyes.
This has Salicylic Acid in it, shouldn't have this stuff near your delicate eye area anyway.

Have you tried the scrub (green tea)? the scrub is great as well.
