BEAUTY | THE FACE SHOP Real Blend Calming Cream Soap and Calming Cleansing Oil Review

Assalamualaikum and hello.

My skin has always been sensitive but as I grow older, well hormones happened and my skin's sensitivity level has gone down quite a lot. Nowadays, I can usually use any type of skin care because I rarely get breakouts or redness. But when I do, that's when I know I have to stop using that certain product immediately. As someone who has gone through a lot of skin problems while growing up, skincare products for sensitive skin is something that I always look into because they are more gentle on the skin. When I received THEFACESHOP Real Blend range, I know I would love them because of the amazing ingredients in both of these products. Let's take a look at them, shall we? ;)

Size : 150ml
Price : RM48.90

THEFACESHOP Real Blend Calming Cream Soap is formulated with 3 types of oil,  inclusive of olive oil, palm oil and coconut oil. With that being said, you would get the idea how moisturizing and nourishing this cleanser is due to the botanical oils. The added Chamomile extract is great for anti-inflammatory, so that's why this is a good choice for those who has sensitive skin. Another keypoint that we need to know about this cleanser that it does not contain paraben, tar pigment, animal ingredients, mineral oil, talc, paraffin, polyacylamide and benzophenone-3. THEFACESHOP  Real Blend Calming Cream Soap contains Olive soap with 2.5% saponified olive oil. 

As mentioned above that this cleanser does not contain the 8 harmful chemicals, therefore this cleanser does not really foamed up. It has this citrusy scent which I love so much! I love citrusy scent if you don't already know that. hehe. This cleanser has citrusy fragrance of bergamot, orange and the fresh green laurel and the floral fragrance of chamomile mixed with lavender. I love how gentle it feels on my skin and how clean my skin feels after cleansing it with water. It leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I can feel that it is gentle on my skin because I don't feel any tightness around my face . It is a lovely ending through out the day to soothe and calm tired skin. 

Size : 225ml
Price : RM88.90 (w/o GST)

Ah, my favourite type of cleanser, cleansing oil. THEFACESHOP Real Blend Calming Cleansing Oil is a soybean oil base that uses Marseille soap's secret recipe which comprises of 3 oils ; olive oil, palm oil and coconut oil. Soybean oil is a natural plant ingredient that is suitable for those with sensitive skin as this won;t cause any skin irritation. It is enriched with nutrients such as unsaturated fatty acid, vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Amino Acids, etc and has an excellent effect on skin protection. It also contains lavender and chamomile to sooth sensitive skin to keep it healthy and clean from impurities. Lavender is an amazing ingredient as it is great for anti-bacterial, anti-flammatory and anti-oxidant. This cleansing oil is also free from the 8 harmful chemicals such as paraben, tar pigment, animal ingredients, mineral oil, talc, paraffin, polyacylamide and benzophenone-3.  The scent comes from 100% fresh lavender blossoms with the addition of citrusy fragrance of bergamot, orange and the fresh green fragrance of laurel.

The texture of the oil is not too oily. It is more watery than any other cleansing oil I've tried so far. I use this cleansing oil to remove my makeup and it is amazing! It removes all of my makeup and I don't even have to double cleansed. But if you use waterproof mascara or any other makeup, please double-cleansed to ensure all of the makeup is removed. It does not leave any greasy or oily residue on my face after washing. This cleansing oil does not sting my eyes, which is always a bonus point. :D I love that it leaves my skin soft and supple after cleansing, this is surely one of my favourite cleansing oil!

I think any sensitive skin girls (or guys) should try this range as both of these products do not irritate my skin and does not give me that tight feeling around my face. It soothes my skin while keeping it clean and soft. This both products gets a two thumbs up for me! But for a personal favourite, I love the THEFACESHOP Real Blend Calming Cleansing Oil to remove my makeup and clean my skin all together. A real time-saver! :)
