Texture & Scent:

I don't know why but when I saw this cleanser, i expected it to have a scrubby consistency, so I was abit surprised to find this no different in texture than the other facial cleansers from this brand - creamy fresh out of the tube! :D

This foams up quite well when it comes in contact with water:

This product is supposed to be fragrance free but i find that it smells like aspirin! :P


This facial cleanser comes in a squeeze tube with a flip top cap! :)

The dispensing hole:

Price & Availability:
This facial cleanser costs RM31.90 and should be available at most Guardian outlets in Malaysia. There's also a smaller 50g tube available at RM17.90 each! :)

My $0.02:

I was actually torn between buying this one versus the Whitening one due to raves I've read. As mentioned in my review on the Original Super Hyaluronic Acid Cleanser, thankfully my colleague happen to own both of them, and she willingly lend them to me to test out!! :D :D Gotta love them!! Hehehe!! :D

I was initially wary about this cleanser being drying on the skin since its an AHA / BHA cleanser, but that seemed like a silly thing to worry about because my skin actually felt quite comfortably moist after using this cleanser! Not as moist as the other two cleanser from this brand, but still moist! lol! :D

This is also easily available and quite affordable, and it goes on sale often! There's really nothing I don't like about this one. Ok maybe except the fact that the tube is GREEN! Put a prettier color la! :P :P :P

And oh, look how cute this little tube I got as a free GWP is:

It's perfect for travelling huh!! Though i don't think I can ever find the heart to use it!! :D :D :D

Ok enough distraction! So to sum it all up, this is a great great cleanser, and I will repurchase one for myself! ;)

Read what the other ladies have to say about this cleanser:

Psssst: Not related to this review, but if you're dying to try out the Hada Labo sheet masks, do hop on over to Guardian! These are going for RM59.88 for two boxes now - thats RM20 savings there!! :D

Psssst #2: Many of you asked me where to get cheap yet authenthic My Beauty Diary masks. Well this is not really cheap cheap per se, but Guardian is now having an offer whereby you can get RM10 off the 2nd box of 10 (which translate to approx. 50 cents savings per piece)! lol! Oh well, better than nothing I guess! :D

Psssst #3: Also, the Neutrogena Hydro Boost and Fine Fairness masks are now going for RM48.88 each instead of the usual RM59.90 for the box of 5! These hardly get such a "huge" discount (usually just 10% off) so you might want to stock up! :) Don't feel like buying the box yet still feel like trying these out? Get the singles then! You get one free with every 2 sheets you purchase! :)

Psssst #4: Watsons is having a Buy 1 Free 1 offer for the Majolica Majorca Shadow Customizes! Ditto the Revlon nail polishes! :D

Ok just for the record I'm not paid to advertise any of the above! I just happen to come across this and this! Good things must share right? lol!! :D

  7. Thanks for this review!
    I'm surprised to see the long ingredients list...

    Oh, the aspirin-like smell is probably the salicylic acid, which is nearly the same as the main ingredient of aspirin, just broken down or something. Sorry, no chemist here!

  8. Hmm.. so which cleanser is your fav (from drugstore) I'm currently usign Loreal revitalift.I dun like the milky texture but would prefer concentrate foam (eg Lancome). Any suggestion ?

  9. I haven't tried many drugstore facial cleansers TBH, but i really liked the Hada Labo whitening one! :)
