Fresh Kombucha Cleansing Treatment Review

Not Sponsored: If you follow my blog, you know I sing the PRAISES of Fresh's Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence (first reviewed here)(can be purchased here: Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Space NK, Harrods). I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It plumps up my skin (face, neck, shoulders, decollete) and gives me a very youthful appearance. It's expensive, but so effective ... so good! So Fresh, just came out with a Fresh Kombucha Cleansing Treatment (Nordstrom, Harrods, Space NK, Neiman Marcus). It's a 2 in 1 NO RINSE cleanser and prebiotic treatment. So let me break it down! What kind of cleanser is this? Fresh wants you to use it "as your primary cleanser or as the second step in double cleansing for full makeup days". Fresh states that it removes makeup, sunscreen, pollution, impurities, refines the look of pores and protects the skin with prebiotic inulin for clarity (skin balance & to fight dullness & dehydration). To use, you saturate a cotton pad, sweep over your face and eyes, to remove eye makeup hold the cotton ball over the applied area, follow with Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence. I had problems with all of this! This product may work for you if you wear VERY LIGHT makeup. At a minimum, I wear sunscreen, moisturizer, primer, foundation, under-eye corrector, concealer, blush, lipstick ... yeah a lot! And that is my BASIC makeup. This cleansing treatment is very gentle and it took awhile to remove those layers. You can also imagine the number of cotton balls which added to the waste. I use either Clinique's Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (reviewed here) (Bloomingdales, Harrods, QVC) or Drunk Elephant's Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser (reviewed here) RINSE and I'm done! So this stuff is a liquid (can be used at home, but it will become challenging when traveling) and it's extremely gentle and not effective when removing lots of layers of skincare and makeup. It smells fine (a clinical scent) and it's light as water. You can splash it on your face. Once applied to you skin, there is some stick ... some tack. This dissipates over several minutes. Again, I have a problem with the waste that it causes. Yes, it's NO RINSE, but the "guck" has to go somewhere and that somewhere is on countless cottonballs that Fresh suggests. Overall, my face never felt fully clean. My skin did feel soft (so that was good). So those are its faults (in my opinion as a primary cleanser). As a second step in double cleansing. I honestly think ANY cleanser you use currently is stronger and more effective than this cleanser. I really don't see the purpose of this cleanser at all. I hate to say it, but its true. I can only see one using this if you barely wear any makeup. So, I'm not recommending that you purchase this. I DO RECOMMEND Fresh's Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence (as mentioned above). But this product didn't do it for me and I feel there are much better products out there.
