Hi everyone! Today I want to do a review on the cleanser I've been using recently - the irresistibly sweet Creamy Latte Chocolate Cleansing Foam, from MISSHA. *wowser, that's a long name!*
Being a bit of a chocoholic, I just had to try this one out - and the $6.88 price tag didn't hurt either. Yep, that's right, you get 172 ml worth of product for less than $7.
But no worries, this Chocolate Latte version is specifically catered for dry skin types - I think it has to do with the milk ingredients, as milk is supposedly very good for softening and moisturising skin.
I really like the packaging. It's a clean white squeeze tube, and it has the most lovely presentation with a gold swirly border, and even a cute little tea cup illustration. Everything is written in English on the front, but on the back everything is in Korean.
It's a little surprising considering MISSHA has quite an international market nowadays. I would've liked to be able to read the ingredients list, in particular.
Notable details: MISSHA stamps their products with the manufacturing date, and not the expiration date (many Korean brands do this). So don't be alarmed and think you have an expired product if you buy this online.
This cleanser is good for up to 12 months after the opening date.
Here is how the product is dispensed - with a flip lid, and nozzle. The cleanser should come with a foil seal, to show that is a brand new, and a non-tampered product.

The cleanser itself is a surprising metallic bronze colour! I admit it was a bit disconcerting at first ^_^
The texture is very thick, it'll pretty much stay in place, even if you wave your hand around a bit.
I must mention the scent too, it does indeed smell like chocolate latte! If you are not a fan of fragrance products, than this may not appeal to you, but I think chocoholics will like this! I could detect a slight scent lingering on my face in the immediate minutes after rinsing it off, but it disappears soon after that.
And a little will go a long way, as it does lather up very well. With 172 ml worth of product, this cleanser will take a long time to finish too.
I don't find this drying at all, I feel like it thoroughly and effectively cleanses my skin, and it doesn't make my skin feel tight or dry after using this. The one little thing I do not like so much is that squeaky clean feel I get immediately after rinsing off. It doesn't last too long though, so it's bearable.
- so cheap, especially considering the size!
- will last a long time
- chocolate latte scented
- thorough cleanse, but not drying
- most of us have to buy it online
- gives a temporary squeaky clean feel after rinsing off
- no ingredients list in English
I purchased this for under $7 at Cosmetic Love, but this is also easily available on ebay with similar prices.
And there are also two other variants in this Cream Latte Range - Strawberry (to brighten normal skin), and Green Tea (to cleanse Oily skin).
Definitely worth checking out if you're on the lookout for a new foam cleanser to try - as long as you don't mind scented cleansers, or a squeaky clean skin sensation afterwards.
Are you a fan of dessert/sweet themed beauty products?
