Brightening Rice Water Cleansing Cream

One of the latest beauty stuff that successfully steals my attention is Brightening Rice Water Cleansing Cream from The Face Shop. My skin type is oily to combination. So I usually struggle to control the excessive oil on my face. But after putting many treatments to control the oil, occasionally I feel my skin becomes dryer. That’s why I sometimes feel that using cleansing cream is needed.

Cleansing cream is a kind of cleanser agent which is supposed to normal to dry skin type. All you need to do is to massage the cleansing cream onto the face. The key ingredient contained in cleansing cream is oil so it is able to lift away makeup residues without drying the skin.

I have heard that rice water is good for beauty skin. Many girls use rice water for washing or splashing their faces. It is known for its benefit in tightening the skin and rejuvenates skin cells. Rice water contains various nutrients that results in fairer skin complexion.

A moisturizing and brightening cleansing line with rice water and Moringa oil. Moringa oil known as 'purifying tree' in India has very strong detoxifying quality. People used to put grinded Moringa plant in the polluted river water to detoxify.


Its innovative texture makes rolling & handling so easy! Cleansing residue does not stick to the skin and is removed effortlessly with tissue.

My trial
Though it doesn’t create lather at all, but I think it cleanse the grime properly. Of course I make it as second cleanser (I take cleansing milk as first step cleanser). Another cleansing cream I tried is Himalaya Gentle Face Wash Cream which has stronger scent. The Rice Water leaves my skin supple and moist. It’s a way better than the Himalaya’s.

The texture is more similar to lotion than cream. Once being applied to my damp skin, the product turns to be rice water: white and muddy. Personally I really love the scent which is really alike with original rice water. Instead of removing the residue with tissue, I rinse it off with warm water.

The product doesn’t sting or make me experience a surge in whiteheads. Conversely, my face feels moist and supple to touch, my complexion become clearer. Consequently my face becomes moister and my BB cream sits on better on my skin. I don’t get dry patch at the next hours. This is definitely going to be the next item on my wish list.
