Tad too drying, broke me out
After not deciding to buy Heimish's beloved balm, I took a shot to try this bad boy. This clay cleanser is almost a...well, clay mask. The consistency is thick and akin to semi-dry mud, the foam is luxurious, cleaning power is topnotch, the scent is pleasant and not overpowering and save for a few key things the ingredients list is superbly clean. First impressions were great! But....While I liked it initially - for the first few days - it soon became apparent that this cleanser was just not doing it for my oily, acne-prone skin. First thing, it really is quite drying even for me. Second, I thought I can ignore the coconut oil content. I've always been aversive to that ingredient, but because it was a cleanser and doesn't stay on the skin for long I thought I can work it out. Third and most important thing, it kinda broke me out. Small pimples would grow all over my cheeks, some painful, some deep. It was a frustrating 2 weeks, and I kept denying that it was because of the cleanser. Then I gave up and switched back to the Innisfree Volcanic Pore Foam and things got much better. A bit soon afterwards, I tried giving it a chance but widening usage intervals into every other night. Alas, the same problems came up again and I had to give up. This is just not for me. The first impressions alone deserved a 3-star rating but there's nothing else good about it.
