How to use it
This one can be used as a second cleanser or as an only cleanser.
Add an appropriate amount to your palms and add water, you really don’t need much. Lather up and massage your face. Rinse with lukewarm water.
My thoughts on Benton Honest Cleansing Foam
I received an 8 gr sample size and had the opportunity to test it out, but I haven’t been able to test it enough for a full review. I usually want at least a month to be able to truly know if I like it or not.
According to others the pH level is quite high, around 8 or 9 which is not very good if you have dry or sensitive skin. I really had too small amount to see how it acted over time on my skin. According to Benton themselves they claim that the pH is between 5-7. But I really can’t say since I don’t have any pH testers myself… Yet.
The packaging is nice and simple and is the most common type of packaging for a foam cleanser.
If you are using a full face (that is foundation, mascara, eyeliner etc.) I don’t think this will be enough as an only cleanser. I do feel that it cleans my skin but it doesn’t feel squeaky clean. But for a morning cleanser it will work fine. Or if you are a non-foundation user.
I am not a fan of the scent of it, to me it smells like bar soap and bring back memories from the time when I was young and that was what I used to clean my face with. Then I mean a normal hand soap bar and not the cleansing bars that you can buy today.
This really is a cleanser that doesn’t say much, it doesn’t wow me and I don’t dislike it.
Still it is not a cleanser that makes me curious either so I will not buy the full version of it.
