RICE & CLEAN Gentle Facial Cleanser
4 oz/ 120ml
Japan’s secret to smooth, soft, clear skin.
RICE AND CLEAN Organic Gentle Facial Cleanser’s star ingredient is rice bran, which has long been Japan’s secret to smooth, soft, clear skin (geisha traditionally used water left over from washing rice in the bath, for soft skin all over). It naturally contains gamma oryzanol, which has been shown in studies to both soften skin and protect it from UV light damage. Here it joins forces with soothing, antibacterial chamomile to make a gentle cleanser for all skin types.
Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran), Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile) Flowers,* Tocopherol (Vitamin E) *Organic
Instructions: Mix a teaspoon of powder with a few drops of water in your palm to make a paste. Massage into skin, then rinse.
In the beginning most of the product was flaking off into the sink, probably because I wasn't using enough water (the method of applying it dry to a wet face that's mentioned on the jar has definitely not worked for me). Once I figured that out it's been smooth sailing!
This cleanser is amazing. My face feels healthy and fresh afterward, nice and protected. My skin looks so clear and hydrated. I like that it both exfoliates but also protects and hydrates all at once. It took me a few tries to get a good ratio with water but if you use more than you think you should, it's easy to get a nice paste.
My favorite! You can change the texture of this depending on how much water you mix in. Rice is so good for your skin!
Dispensing the product without making a mess is difficult but do like the gentle exfoliation and has helped keep things clear on my face!
The texture of this cleanser is a little unusual, but it leaves my skin SO soft!!
