Here’s my update on the Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel! =)

I stopped using the Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel for a while now. It didn’t work out for me. It felt like a gentle face wash at first, but it started to sting my eyes and skin. It didn’t do anything to brighten my complexion. Nothing for my acne. It didn’t leave my skin feeling clean either. I went through a couple of facial cleansers after discontinuing the Brightening Cleansing Gel. I started to use Derma E Hydrating Gentle Facial Cleanser for some time. I’m currently using a mix of the Derma E and Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Face Wash. My skin feels clean, so it’s working well. I think I’m going to switch over to the Tea Tree Face Wash once I finish the Derma E. Even if acne creams/gels dry out my skin, I still have oily skin underneath the surface. That’s just my skin type. The Tea Tree Face Wash has always worked in the end. I think I’m done searching. Hmmmm, lol. I don’t recommend the Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel. I’m really not impressed. Don’t waste your money.

My review on Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing oil! ๐Ÿ™‚

About Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil:


I’ve been using Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil as part of my cleansing routine for a while now. This cleansing oil dispenses out like an oil (as it should be). It’s soft and smooth, but it’s not too rich or thick (like an oil). When I apply it to my skin, the oil feels lightweight and moves across my face effortlessly. It breaks down makeup very well (including mascara). With this cleansing oil, I simply rinse my face with water afterwards, and it leaves my skin feeling nice. But, I don’t just cleanse my skin with a cleansing oil. Knowing that I have breakout-prone skin, I use my regular face wash afterwards to clean off the oil (if there’s any). I have doubts and don’t want to take the risk, so I double cleanse just in case. Technically, I am using the cleansing oil as a pre-cleanse/makeup remover. And it’s been doing a very good job at that! I don’t need to use wipes afterwards at all. So far, I really like this cleansing oil. It’s inexpensive, and it works. My skin hasn’t had any negative reactions to it. My skin likes it. I gotta give it a thumbs up. Actually, 2 thumbs up. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป If you’re looking for a cleansing oil to try, start off with this one. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Here are the ingredients:

Mineral oil, PEG-8 glyceryl isostearate, cetyl ethylhexanoate, cyclomethicone, water, jojoba oil, isostearic acid, glycerin, phenoxyethanol

It doesn’t have the most ‘natural’ ingredients (besides a few), but it’s inexpensive and works. My skin has improved. Not just from using this cleansing oil but my skin care routine overall.
