REVIEW: My Beauty Diary - Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser

Today I'm bringing you a review on a cleanser I recently purchased from Sasa. It's one of the most adorably packaged and presented cleansers I've ever come across, let alone purchased, and looks perfectly cute in my bathroom! A lot of Asian brand products really do hit that kawaii factor, which isn't commonly found in western brand goods (referring more towards drug-store brands, rather than luxe brands). 

BRAND: My Beauty Diary (Taiwan brand)
PRICE: $11.20 AUD 

PACKAGING: Just look at it, it's absolutely darling~! The cleanser is safely ensconced in a plastic box printed with fluffy clouds, sparkles and delicious looking frozen yogurt cones. The cleanser itself is contained in a pastel pink tub with a twist cap that highly resembles a small tub of frozen strawberry yumminess. 

The one little con I have is that the sticker label on the tub is bound to eventually peel off with contact with water. I would've loved it if the label itself was directly printed onto the plastic tub so that it could retain its cuteness. However that would probably drive up the retail price so I shouldn't complain ^^

I also love that the container is re-usable, it'd be perfect for holding stud earrings, or other little bits and bobs. 

PRODUCT: The tub contains 90ml of cleanser and while it may appear to not be a lot, I've found that only a little is needed per cleanse. 

The cleanser looks and feels like softened whip cream, and it even comes with a little plastic spatula which is great for convenience and hygiene.

There are tiny particles in the solution to aide in giving a more thorough cleansing. How much water is added will determine the texture of the cleanser. More will create a foamier solution, while less will create a thicker, more scrub-like consistency. I like foamy cleansers so I lather it up with more water ^^ 

And not only does it look like strawberry yogurt, this cleanser also smells like it too. It is a very sweet and pleasant scent, but it can smell more artificial the deeper you breathe it in. I generally prefer unscented products but this does not bother me, since it smells quite nice. It may not suit people who prefer unscented products, since I could still smell a trace of strawberry yogurt while applying my make-up later on. 

PERFORMANCE: It works well, and incorporates the two things I like to have in a cleanser. Tiny micro beads - similar to those found in face scrubs - and a foaming solution. 

I use it once a day only - my general routine is to use a no-fuss, extra gentle, foamy cleanser in the morning and then follow up with a cleanser with gentle exfoliating beads to help lift away dirt, oil and bb cream at night, after a long day. My face is left cleansed and smooth after usage, and I have no complaints with its performance.

So to conclude

  • a nice, gentle cleanser
  • can be a foamy or 'scrubby' texture
  • thorough cleansing (but not harsh)
  • cute packaging

Cute and effective, I will most likely repurchase this when it runs out :)

Thanks for reading, and happy upcoming weekend!
