A couple’s take on the Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser
K-Beauty isn’t going anywhere. There are hundreds of brands and thousands of products to try — all of them promise to give you the coveted chok-chok skin. One product that has become a favorite and has gained quite a cult-like following is the Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser. It’s a cleanser made with fermented green tea, which helps in brightening, hydrating and calming the complexion. The foam texture of the cleanser is also said to be good at stripping away the oil and dirt on the skin without leaving a taut feeling. It’s said to be great for people with oily and combination skin.
All of the claims sound great! So I had no qualms trying it. I even had my husband use it, too, so we can compare how it works. Did it become holy-grail material for us? Here’s our take.
Her thoughts on the Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser
I’m not very particular about the pH level of the cleansers I use, although perhaps I need to start paying more attention. So long as it makes my skin feel clean, I’m good. I’ve moved on from liking cleansers that make my skin feel tight and squeaky clean after a wash, so a moisturizing one is ideal. Those two marks were hit by this cleanser. Plus, I love its scent. It really does give you a relaxing feeling. But this sadly broke me out. I should’ve taken my first time using it as a sign to not go ahead. It felt prickly and itchy on my skin, but I decided it was probably just because it was my first time and I’d be acclimated to it. Well, I was wrong. As much as I love the idea (and claims) of this product, I’m not a fan.
His thoughts on the cleanser
My husband says, “I loved the scent. Whenever I use it, it calls forth the vibes of a chill cafe with just the right amount natural light and a tastefully curated playlist. I’d use the product for that alone, but, of course, it does more. The foamy texture feels good too. I felt relaxed the first time I used it. And definitely the scent had to do with the experience. I feel rejuvenated after every use. That’s why I like using it. I don’t think I’ve had this kind of urge to use a skincare product before. My skin has felt softer and looked clearer since I started using it. It’s way pricier than any of the skincare products I’ve used before, but I am likely to buy another bottle of it.”
Skincare is very personal, and what may work for one may not work for another as you can see in the case here. So I wanna know: have you tried the Neogen Green Tea Real Fresh Foam cleanser and what do you think about it?
