Frugal Find : DAiSO Charcoal Cleansing Foam

I couldnt stop raving about the Charcoal Line of Saizen/Original Daiso, so Im making this review for the Charcoal Foam tonight instead of doing it tomorrow, Ha ha! 

If you have no idea what Saizen is, you might wanna check my previous review for the Saizen/Daiso Charcoal Cleansing Creme + a little history of the Saizen Store.

And because I love the Charcoal Masque, I also bought the Cleansing Foam from the same product line.

The Charcoal Cleansing Foam comes in a slim, 70gram tube.

Just like the Charcoal Cleansing Cream, the tube also comes sealed so youre guaranteed to get a fresh stock each time. 

The Charcoal Cleansing Foam bears the same fragrance as the Cleansing Cream, the product also bears the same color -- grey but it doesnt have charcoal specks unlike the Cream. 

This product will be a fail if you dont like Cleansers that leave your face squeaky clean. But if you love that squeaky clean feel after washing the face, then you should try this cleanser. 

And since it strips the sebum layer off, I suggest using a moisturizer right after washing to hydrate the skin. 

Usage Instructions and the list of ingredients of this item are printed in Japanese Characters. No translation, but it didnt prevent me to try this one out as well. harhar! 

I figured this cleanser forms more foam when you lather it on the palm of your hand first instead of applying it directly on the face. 

I use a pea-sized amount of this Cleanser and I add a few drops of water to form a rich lather before I apply it to my face. 

When using this product to prep the skin before using the Charcoal Masque, I suggest you ladies wash your face 2x or 3x with this cleanser to get rid of all the sebum to help the masque adhere to the skin better. 

Skin defnitely loves it. It didnt cause me to breakout.

I still have a dozen tubes of this in my little stockroom and I still bought 2 tubes when I passed by Saizen the other day. Thats how much I love this cleanser haha! :D

After removing the seal, I would say this would be good to keep for about a year, but since its a great product, Im sure youd use it all up in a month or two.
