Despite owning roughly 37,000 cleansers (I exaggerate- but only slightly), a few months ago I added to my collection once again, this time with cult classic Soy Face Cleanser by Fresh Beauty.
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
Offering the clean smell of cucumber in a low-foaming, non-drying formula, this PH-balanced gel offers a thorough cleanse- but doesn’t leave me rushing to immediately moisturise afterwards.
Instead, soy proteins, glycerin, rosewater, borage seed oil and ginseng help to moisturise and hydrate, leaving my skin comfortable.
Meanwhile aloe leaf juice and cucumber fruit extract soothe my skin when’s stressed out.

On the Skin
A cult product for good reason, this also removes a full face of makeup well and I can use this on my eyes without any stinging.
It also works well as a second cleanse after an oil or balm-based product, gently foaming and removing any residue while still keeping skin hydrated.
I have to say that this is one of the few products that I will be buying over and over again because this falls into a small category of gel cleanser which is thorough yet totally non-drying.
I also love that it is available in a few sizes (200 ml, 150 ml and 50 ml), meaning no fiddly decanting into a teeny bottle when I travel.
Great for: Pretty much all skin types, I can even use this when my skin is really dry. Also, although this isn’t the cheapest cleanser, my 50 ml version lasts a good couple of months and I’m not sure I can think of a cheaper dupe that offers the same quality.
Not-so-great for: Cruelty-free fans. While I absolutely love this cleanser, I don’t love that Fresh sells its products in China where animal testing is required by law. I am pleased to note that are taking part in a project to find alternative methods of testing, however.
