Skin Food Green Tea Bubble Cleansing Foam review

Dear Beauty Diary,
I have been using the Skin Food Green Tea Bubble Cleansing Foam for quite some time now. Before that, I was using Biore Marshmallow Whip Foam facial cleanser. What's up with all these foam cleansers? I absolutely love them. They actually clean pores much better than normal cleansers or hand lathered foam cleansers. With normal cleansers, skin feels very tight after that, and you get a false impression, thinking that your skin is squeaky clean. Foam cleansers do not give the same squeaky clean feeling, but because the foam bubbles are so small (they are smaller than normal pores), the bubbles reach into your skin to thoroughly clean your pores. You may not feel it, but this results in happier and cleaner skin! :)

Skin Food's cleanser has green tea in it. As we all know, green tea is a great anti-oxidant. Thus this cleanser is great if you have acne. I bought it happily at that time.

Product description:
Green Tea not only gives plenty of moistures but also brightens your skin. This Green Tea product gently exfoliates and removes unwanted dead skin. Also it improves skin tone, gives it a healthy glow and skin as soft as silk.

Well yes, this cleanser does its job, it cleanses my pores. But its quite pricey for $25 ($19.96 USD). It has 160ml of product, which is quite a lot of product. To be honest, I am quite disappointed with this product, as I thought that such a price will deliver a good product. However... This is one harsh cleanser.

I close my eyes when cleansing, as I find it hard to maneuver around my eyes if I keep them open. Even though I close my eyes, after rinsing off the cleanser, my eyes still sting. They sting like crazy. I've even tried scrunching up my eyes while cleansing. I've also tried rinsing off thoroughly, such as rinsing at least 5 times before patting dry. But my eyes still sting. I don't know how the product even got into my eyes.

This cleanser smells quite floral. Look at that pump. It is quite badly designed. I can't get the foam onto my hands easily. I can only pump the foam to the side of my palm. Sighs. Now I'm just waiting to finish up this cleanser. After that I'll happily move back to my Biore Marshmallow Whip foam cleanser.
