REVIEW: ROSETTE whitening SULFUR FACIAL cleansing paste
You probably all know by now that I’m a sucker for a cleansing foam, it’s practically turning into a collection in my bathroom cabinet and I will try just about any on the market especially if they’re a little bit unusual looking.
I’ve used Rosette foaming cleansers before so when I saw this one I knew I had to give it a go, I’ll be honest and say it was the packaging that really drew me to this one. It has a vintage look to it based on cosmetics packing form 1970s Japan meaning that even if I didn’t like it it would at least look nice in the bathroom. Fickle, I know.
WHAT IS IT?
The paste itself contains sulfur which helps remove the top layer of dead skin cells to help skin appear brighter and feel softer, it is also quite moisturising as it contains olive and coconut oils. There are also various ingredients that help prevent acne and dry skin.
The packaging also states that you can use the cleansing paste on your entire body to help smooth out skin.
WHAT IT DOES
Firstly the dispensing of this product is quite unique and I haven’t seen packaging like this anywhere else, you get the paste you need by pressing down on a disc in the tub itself which squeezes the paste out of a hole in the top. The paste is quite thick so I assume this way of dispensing is necessary whilst still keeping the product hygienic.
It’s a very thick paste, which smells just like baby powder – it is clearly a synthetic smell but isn’t a smell I found unpleasant or was put off by but if you are a little sensitive to smells you might want to give this one a miss.
The paste quickly lathers up as expected from a foam cleanser but does feel a little more gentle and moisturising as others I have tried, it leaves the skin feeling clean but not stripped which is a nice feeling especially with the winter months coming along and drying out the skin.
Overall I really like this cleansing paste, it isn’t the best Asian cleanser I have used but it does do a good job. The product also comes in a pink packaging variety and this one is better for acne prone skin but I do think that this blue variety would be good for those with dry skin prone to break outs also.
This is certainly worth checking out even if it’s just because like me you like the packaging, it is a little pricier than some other cleansers but it does contain some very active ingredients.
