Beautee Cool Cream Cleanser Review

Cleansers are most important for everyday use to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other types of pollutants from the skin of the face. I actually had finished off my cleanser a few days back so I am currently in the hunt to find me a new cleanser. After being sucked into the 'Let's buy! Let's buy!' zone and hooked on the Beautee Ampoulees, my sister and I decided to try their Cool Cream Cleanser. This cleanser costs RM35 and bought via online (thanks to my online shopping enthusiast sister).

This cleanser comes in a 30ml pump bottle and is formulated in France (as mentioned on the bottle itself). It can be used as a cleanser or as a mask depending on how you use it. The description at the back of the bottle stated that 'This special cooling sensation cleanser can thoroughly clean skin and penetrates skin to soften dead cells and black heads. It also helps to soothe uncomfortable skin condition and reduce excessive sebum on skin'.

To use as a cleanser, you only have to apply the cleanser onto your face, massage gently and then rinse off.

To use as a mask, you have to apply the cleanser onto your face, massage gently if you want to and leave it on your skin. There are certain time limits that you have to follow depending on your skin type.
Normal to dry skin: 3-5 minutes
Oily and open pore skin: 10-15 minutes
Sensitive skin: 10-15 minutes
Pimpled skin: 15-30 minutes

The active ingredients of this cleanser (as stated at the back of the bottle): water, honeysuckle, root of red rooted salvia angelica and lavender.

The bottle is surprisingly small and compact but the size is just nice enough for me to hold firmly and pump the cleanser unto my palm.

The texture of the cleanser is somewhat like lotion and is white in colour. The smell of the substance is subtle and doesn't crowd into my nostrils. It smells of a light clean scent. For me it's important to use a nice and clean smelling cleanser so that it gives me a clean feeling while using it. To cover my whole face, the amount of cleanser I needed is in the size of 20 cents. Make sure you pump the exact amount that you need before applying the cleanser because I did the mistake of pumping out too little and realized that the amount of cleanser wasn't enough for my face so I had to push the pump with the base of my palms since my fingers were all sticky and smeared and I ended up making quite a mess. Huhu..

The cleanser is not a frothy type of cleanser. All I did was spread it onto my face and did a little massage and then leave it on my skin for 10-15 minutes. You can take a nap if you like while waiting for the time to pass.

Rinsing the cleanser off my face is the most fun part. Once water touched my skin I immediately felt a cooling sensation (just like the bottle said it would!) and it stays that way all the while I was rinsing the cleanser off. I really mean it. It was really cool and cold! Almost like ice water hitting your skin. Nice and refreshing. It can really be used as a wake-me-up cleanser in those sleepy and lazy mornings. The cooling sensation does not fade away for a few minutes after I had rinsed off my face. This is definitely going to be my pick-me-up things to use.

I have yet to see the effect of using this cleanser in a long run. I think this could be a repeat buy for me just for the cooling sensation alone. Thumbs up for this! :)

Additional info (added a week later):
I actually ran out of this cleanser after a week of using it. And the small opening of the bottle makes it quite hard to scoop out the remaining cleanser out. I guess using it everyday (once in the morning and once before bedtime) makes the bottle of cleanser finish off faster. For RM35 a week I guess it's kind of expensive to maintain.
