GLOW RECIPE BLUEBERRY BOUNCE GENTLE CLEANSER, BOUNCY K-BEAUTY
There is something about berries which seems to make everyone see eye to eye, they make the sweet tooth happy, but also the healthy freak, without mentioning how aesthetically pleasing they are! I for one love them, and I like the fact that Glow Recipe have mixed numerous and various berries with highly appreciated skincare ingredients to create the Bluberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser, a cleanser which, just as its star ingredient, is a definite crowd-pleaser.
It all begins with the perfect name, Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser: the first things I’ve scented and felt whilst pouring the cleanser into my hands is the delicate, very natural berry scent and a texture which defies all previous bouncy cleansing experiences! That said, it doesn’t disturb the cleansing process, which is as lovely and easy as any classic gel-which-does-not-foam consistency: without water, the hands have to work a little bit and deeply massage the skin, with water, on the other hand, the cleanser gently glides onto the skin without disturbing it too much. With or without water, however, it always removes makeup more efficiently -doesn’t imply to waterproof makeup- than the usual gel cleansers. Its refreshing feeling on the skin, however, defines it as a second cleanser or morning cleanser to me. Whether as a first cleanse or as a 5 min hydrating mask, I cannot help but feeling like I’m wasting the product up.
Indeed, my skin makes the most of the Glow Recipe Cleanser’s deep cleansing, exfoliating, anti-drying, but also softening ingredients by using it as the last step of the cleansing process as these properties truly prep the skin to receive the following hydrating steps of the routine without, however, compromising on its overall clear aspect. Beyond the bouncy consistency, this is perhaps what make this little blue cleanser Korean to me, the idea of something effective, but still part of a larger, well thought through, skincare routine.
