If you have been reading my blog for some time, you might realise that I’ve been trying my best to use low pH cleansers for some time (If you are interested to find out why low pH cleansers are much better for your skin, click here). Today I have another sexy low pH cleanser to introduce to you guys – Make P:rem’s Safe Relief Cleansing Foam. This product is a SLS-free cleanser with a pH of 5.5. It claims to gently work on sensitive & irritated skin to cleanse and remove makeup without stripping the skin. I was alerted to this product when I saw it in the skincare routine of @snowwhiteandtheasianpear on Instagram. Coincidentally, I’ve been browsing the Korean Beauty app HwaHae a lot recently just to check out new launches in Korean beauty as well as to look out for products which are receiving much love amongst the Korean consumers. This product has been consistently getting very high ratings and my interest was piqued. So how did it fare for my combination dry skin? Read on to find out more!
As usual, ingredients for the product are as below for your reference.
Water, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Glycerin, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Coco-Betaine, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Hydroxyacetophenone, Sodium Chloride, Polyquaternium-67, Potassium Cocoate, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Sodium Acetate, Rubus Arcticus Callus Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ethyl hexylglycerin
How does the Make P:rem Safe Relief Cleansing Foam fare?
The Make P:rem’s Safe Relief Cleansing Foam is a creamy foaming cleanser that is formulated with less than 20 low-hazard ingredients to provide soothing relief to dry, sensitive, and irritated skin. Ingredients such as Glycerin are mixed with extracts like hydrating Coconut, anti-aging Sage, and even healing Artic Raspberry to completely cleanse and soothe your skin.
Although it claims that it could help to remove makeup, I wouldn’t recommend using it to remove waterproof or heavy makeup as it’s actually quite gentle to the skin. Otherwise I find that it works very well as a 2nd cleanse to gently remove all remains of my makeup remover such as cleansing oils/ balms, as well as my skin itself. Another property of this cleanser which makes me rather happy is that although it doesn’t foam a lot, it does foam and somehow, my skin seems to like foaming cleansers better than milk cleansers. The only thing which I need to maybe caution you is that the cleanser does have a musky smell due to the inclusion of sage oil and bergamot oil. It doesn’t really bother me much but I’m just putting it out there cause I know that some people are sensitive to smells. Otherwise, I’m actually really happy with this cleanser overall. It’s low-pH, cleanses well without dehydrating my skin and it’s very reasonably priced for its size (150g). Highly recommended!
Where can you find it?
I bought this product from Qoo10.sg. Although the price seems to vary amongst sellers, I bought it at S$24.90 (150g sized).
