Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Brightening Make-up Removing Cleansing Mousse

Hello! It's finally the holidays and even though I have had June holidays since I was a kid (Ermahgawd. Ageing. ಥ_ಥ), somehow this one feels extremely precious. Maybe it's because I took on a little more but it was nice being busy. Though it wasn't so nice falling sick... Twice. Sheesh, stupid body.

Anyway, just the other day, I was wondering if people still read blogs. I go onto Reddit for reviews because there aren't many active blogs now, which is kind of sad but oh wells. I mean, I'm barely active too. Heh. It would be a lot easier and convenient to blog when I move on to a new work place next year. Hopefully. ◡̈

Today, I'm going to review Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Brightening Make-up Removing Cleansing Mousse. For those who don't already know, Naruko is my current favourite-st brand and when the brand decided to pull out from Singapore early this year *insert loud sobs*, I went slightly crazy and carted out parcels after parcels of products. So much for minimalism and I really need to remind myself that I'm not Watsons personified. Heh. Anyway, I'm actually more for the masks but the cleansers were BOGO so... *guilty grin*

This cleanser doubles up as a makeup remover and even though it says 'mousse', it's more foam. And if you're familiar with Naruko products, you would know that their ingredients list is essay-like (Which is actually one of the reasons why I took so long to really love this brand because I prefer minimal ingredients.).

Here are the highlighted ingredients on Naruko Malaysia's website, along with some Google research:

  • Betaine: Humectant and anti-irritant, that hydrates the skin without leaving any sticky residual. Temporarily smoothes out lines and wrinkles for a youthful appearance.
  • Yeast Complex B and Gluconolactone: Yeast Complex B reduces sebum production and Gluconolactone, otherwise known as Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA), protects skin from UV radiation damage.
  • Raw Job's Tears, Polished Job's Tears, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid and Tranexamic Acid: The first two are for hydration, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is a stable Vitamin C derivative which helps brighten the complexion and Tranexamic Acid helps to whiten.
  • Hyaluronic Acid, Tremella Extract and Phytoferulin: Hyaluronic Acid is for hydration, Tremella is a kind of fungus that is a natural substitute for Sodium Hyaluronate and Phytoferulin is Naruko's patented ingredient which contains 11 plant extracts for their antioxidant properties and brightening effects.

I'm currently on my 2nd and last bottle (Trip to Taiwan soon please. Also, to feed my current idol drama obsession. #jerryyan4eva). I use this every evening, after I come back from work. It removes sunscreen and light makeup really easily but it's not so clean when it comes to heavy eye makeup. I will double cleanse with this sometimes. Otherwise, I will use Naruko Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask & Cleanser in 1.

The cleanser doesn't give me that super squeaky clean feeling (Which is a good thing.) and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I'm quite fair so the brightening effect isn't that visible but there's Niacinamide in it, which is a brightening ingredient that Redditors love. It leaves my skin soft, smooth and comfortable and I will definitely get this again if I come across it (Does Naruko Malaysia ship to Singapore? ಥ_ಥ) because it's pretty pocket-friendly as well. Also, foam is supposed to exert less stress on your skin so it prevents premature wrinkles. Not that this really matters to me because I totally skoosh my face into my pillow when I sleep so... Heh. Anyway, definitely check this out if you're looking for a fuss-free and gentle cleanser for sensitive skin!
