I got intrigued with The Face Shop line of facial washes after using the Mung Bean facial wash. This Acerola facial wash is also a keeper. I started using this in December and stopped in January just because I switched to the Clinique 3-Step System but in the duration of my usage of this product, I was very satisfied.
What are its merits? Number one, the price. It’s very affordable at only Php200+ at any TFS store. It also lasts a long time so your 200 pesos goes a long, long way.
The scent is lovely. At first I thought Acerola is aratilis but a quick Googling proved me wrong. Acerola is actually like a cherry. It is native in the Americas but is also cultivated in some of our Asian neighbors. So why would they use acerola in a facial wash? Acerola has very high vitamin C content and other nutrients. And we all know that vitamin C is good for our bodies in and out. It’s a very good anti-oxidant.
After using this, I am left with a brighter face. My cheeks are also softer and I can definitely feel that my face is clean. It doesn’t make my skin oily after several hours. When used with a good moisturizer, the effects can be long-lasting.
After several weeks of using the Clinique 3-Step System, I tried using this facial wash again. Sadly, I ended up with rashes as my skin dried up. I think I developed sensitivity to this product. My skin is really like that. Now, I’m scared to use any other facial wash aside from Clinique.
For ladies who are looking for a good, affordable facial wash, I recommend you try either the Mung Bean or Acerola TFS facial wash. While you’re at it, why not try both and see what works best for your skin.
