My New Face Wash :)
I’ve officially switched facial cleansers for a while now. I don’t even remember when I last started a new face wash but I did. I’m using a facial cleanser that is very similar to my previous HG (no longer HG) cleanser, which was Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash. The cleanser I use now is called Dr. Woods Tea Tree Castile Soap. This facial cleanser is a very minimal face wash. The ingredient list is very short and gets straight to the point. Here are the ingredients:
Purified Water (Aqua), Saponified Coconut, Hemp and Olive Oils (with retained Glycerin), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Tea Tree Essential Oil, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Rosemary (Rosemarinus Officinalis) Extract.
The ingredients are minimal and short, and it looks pretty natural too. It’s another facial cleanser with Tea Tree. I truly do love skin care products with tea tree. 🙂
This face wash has been working very well for me. It cleanses the skin, doesn’t break me out, and leaves my skin feeling really nice afterwards. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash seemed to leave a layer of product behind on my skin. It didn’t break me out though. But, that’s something I noticed with my new face wash vs Trader Joe’s. I like the new face wash a lot more so far.
The funny thing is, I purchased this cleanser/soap product just for my body. And I purchased it when it was on sale. I thought I would just give it a shot, since I was searching for a body wash anyways, but I ended up using it as a face wash and a body wash. Fortunately for me, it works much better than I expected on my facial skin. I haven’t had any issues with it. I’m pretty amazed because I’ve been trying to find a new face wash for quite some time. Like, how come I didn’t stumble upon a product like this before? It comes in a 32 fl. oz. bottle. It’s not the most portable product for travel but that can be taken care of by dispensing it in a travel-size bottle. But for the amount of product and price, it’s a good deal. I can use it on my face and also my body if I wanted to. I think I’m all set when it comes to facial cleansers for the rest of the summer or the whole year. Haha. I think this large bottle is going to last forever. I mean, much longer than a small, overpriced bottle of facial cleanser that is. Everything has been going well so far. It must’ve been over a month using it now. No problems with it yet! I love it! 😃
Here’s my old face wash Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash!

Review: Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser
Let’s talk about facial cleansers! Here’s one that I used before. I wanted to share my thoughts on it. It’s the Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser. This facial cleanser is a brightening facial cleanser that contains moisture-rich soy-extract that lifts away dirt, oil, and makeup. It helps to enhance natural radiance and improve skin tone and texture. It’s gentle on sensitive skin. Oil-free and soap-free. Did it work on my skin? Keep reading to find out! Now here are my thoughts on this product!
This face wash comes in a 6.7 fl. oz. (200 mL) bottle with a pump. It’s a gel facial cleanser. The texture and consistency of the product is very soft. It has a shimmery golden sheen to it. The first a couple of times using this facial cleanser, I noticed that it didn’t lather up or become foamy. That was a little disappointing. I prefer facial cleansers that are soapy and sudsy. Even just a little bit. As I continued to use the face wash, I noticed that it cleansed my skin without drying it out and left my skin feeling moisturized. Also, there was a brightening effect that was temporary, so it didn’t leave my skin brighter or make it appear more radiant (as advertised). The brightening effect faded over time.
My first impression of Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser was decent. I wasn’t too ecstatic about it. I just thought, it could work if it cleansed my skin properly. A good facial cleanser has to remove oil, dirt, debris, and all of that gunk off of my skin properly. After 3 weeks of using this face wash, it all went downhill. I noticed that it didn’t leave my skin feeling as clean as it should be. I have really oily skin, and this face wash just didn’t get the job done. My skin just didn’t feel completely clean. Since it didn’t clean my skin well, I ended up with acne on my chin, around my mouth area, and nose. I developed blackheads too. The end results were very upsetting. So I stopped using the face wash after experiencing breakouts.
Pros & Cons
- Gentle on the skin
- Great for sensitive skin
- Contains soy extract to brighten the skin
- Doesn’t clean the skin well
- No long-lasting brightening effect on skin
- Broke my skin out!
- Doesn’t foam up
I stopped using Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser a while ago. The breakouts were terrible while using Aveeno. I’m glad I stopped using it, but it took me 3 weeks to notice that it clogged my pores. Whew! I’m glad that’s over. So, I’ve already moved on to another facial cleanser.
