Green Tea Face Wash - By Wishtrend Green Tea Enzyme Powder Wash Review

(Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post however, I did receive a free product sample for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.)

Your facial wash is the kind of skincare product that tends to stick around. Once you find a product you like, there’s little reason for you to switch.

I have 2 products currently on my skincare routine rotation: CosRx LowPh Good Morning Gel Cleanser and Hada Labo Foaming Cleanser.

They’re fantastic products and I’m actually very happy with them. 

I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about powder washes though. Specifically, about By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash.

And I wanted to find out what the buzz was about. Yay or nay? Find out!

It wasn’t until I started taking skincare seriously that I realized there were different kinds of cleansers out there. 

There are gel cleansers and cream cleansers; oil cleansers and water-based cleansers; powder washes, cleaning wipes, cleansing balms and even no-rinse cleansing products!

As its name suggests, Hada Labo Foaming Cleanser is a foam cleanser. It simply means it’s already foamy and sudsy coming out of the bottle. 

It’s from a Japanese skincare company called Hada Labo that’s known for its straightforward, no-fuss approach to skincare. They prioritize the science over the aesthetic, like packaging and fragrance. This makes them affordable too.

If you google Hada Labo Foaming Cleanser, you might come across products called:

  • Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Face Wash
  • Hada Labo Gokujyun Hydrating Foam Cleanser
  • Hada Labo Japan Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Bubble Foaming Cleanser
  • Rohto Mentholatum – Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Face Foam

Don’t worry, they all mean the same thing and this review covers them all!

CosRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review

CosRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a gentle facial cleanser with a low pH formula that promises smooth skin with no irritation. Is it a good facial cleanser? Find out in this CosRX cleanser review.

CosRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review

When I started my basic skincare routine, the first thing I did was replace my facial wash. I’ve been using the same product for years and while it didn’t break me out, it didn’t do anything special either.

And sometimes my skin would feel dry and tight after using it. And I’ve always wondered if it actually works at cleansing my skin.

This low pH cleanser from CosRx was the first thing I tried. It promised:

  • A gentle but effective formula
  • A slightly acidic pH level that helps restore our skin’s ideal pH level
  • And refreshing, glowing, supple skin 

Does it deliver?

How To Determine Your Skin Type

How to determine your skin type is a simple but important step in building your skincare routine. It tells you not only the skin conditions you need to address but also the skin care products that are right for you.

How To Determine Your Skin Type

We all know the different skin types: 

  • Normal skin means you’re blessed with well-balanced, healthy skin. You have small pores and you don’t normally deal with a lot of major skin issues.
  • You have dry skin when your face often feels tight and parched. You’re more susceptible to flakiness and fine lines.
  • Oily skin means you’re less susceptible to wrinkles but tend be more acne-prone.
  • Combination skin is when you have dry or normal cheeks but an oily t-zone (forehead, nose and chin).
Different Skin Types

Most people already have an idea of what their skin type is. 

But for those who are not sure, or for those who want to be 100% certain, how to tell your skin type is very simple using these two skin type tests.
