Review: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

This may be the first Fresh product I ever purchased. I loved it: it rinses so well, didn’t dry out or irritate my skin, smells great and you don’t need much to wash your face, neck and decolletage. The tube’s easy to throw in a gym bag or keep in the shower. If you’re a heavy makeup user (or very dry skin), you can use it as a remover and tissue it off at night.

The bad news? It’s too damn expensive at $38 for a cleanser and the trial sizes are ridiculously priced for the amount of cleanser. And, to give consumers the illusion of being a natural product lines, there’s too many parabens, gycols, and BHA/BHT. Check out the ingredient list and crazy-assed disclaimer:
