This review is long overdue. I have used this cleanser for a few weeks as well as a few other Formula 10.0.6 products that I will review soon as well.
Best Face Forward is a light gel with Passionfruit and Green Tea and Chamomille extracts. According to the brand: the passion fruit found in Best Face Forward reduces oiliness, while the green tea exfoliates and soothes skin.
Out of all the Formula 10.0.6 products I have used this one is not my favorite. While it did not make me break out badly, I did not notice any improvement on my skin. As I have been using a cleanser geared toward sensitive skin for the past months, my skin did notice the change when I switched to Best Face Forward. The product is highly fragrant, it smells good but I am increasingly opposed to unnecessary amounts of fragrance is skincare products. Especially those who promise better skin. Let’s say that I am moving towards a “less is more” approach when it comes to the ingredients I find in my skincare products. So finding Sodium Laureth Sulfate and fragrance among the ingredients did not make me really excited about the product.
Yet, I used the whole bottle and somewhat enjoyed it. I have not noticed a change in my skin’s oiliness (as you know it is one of my major skincare issues) nor have I noticed exfoliation. But it does a good job at removing makeup and cleansing skin. This is probably a good cleanser if you do not have problem skin. I do not believe that it will actually help if you have acne or other skin issues to deal with. It may actually add to your issues if you have sensitive skin.
I do have to say that the packaging is extra cute. While I usually prefer pumps on my cleansers, the design on the bottle is really original and makes the brand stand out.
