Ok. let’s just be honest straight from the beginning. I was searching for a new facial cleanser. The only reason I bought this was the name. I mean, naming a brand Mad Hippie is just adorable, and I was sold!
It looked promising as well. A nice glass jar, a pump and a cute label.
So lets take a look at the facts here. The bottle holds 118 ml of product. For a cleanser that is not too much so the bottle won’t last me too long but for 15.99 $ that’s all right. This is a mild acidic cream cleanser and it is supposed to support the skins natural oil balance and not disturbing the protective layer of oils we already have on the skin. Antioxidants and additional oils like jojoba and macadamia oil, in addition to green tea and orchid extract are added to soften the skin while cleansing. So all in all this is supposed to be a gentle cleanser.
The product comes out as a lotion, and has a very pleasant but not overpowering floral scent. I guess it is the orchid extract I am picking up.
I really like this cleanser. It does not feel harsh and it definitely does not strip me for any moisture, actually maybe more of the opposite. It feels like it leaves my skin slightly moisturized. Even though it is gentle, I still feel it removes dirt and excess makeup from my face.
A bit bonus for being in a bottle with a pump. So much easier than messing around with a tube while my hands are wet and slightly oily from my cleansing balm. This works so much better.
I would highly recommend this to anyone hunting for a nice, gentle cleanser. This one makes me want to try more from the brand!
