MISSHA Creamy Latte Chocolate Cleansing Foam Review


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.

I am a fan of cleansing foams, I like the way they lather up, and I like the sensation of a thorough cleanse, which most foaming cleansers will do. But having dryer skin of late, I thought such cleansers would end up drying my skin out further. 

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. 

Taken with flash

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. 

PROS


  • so cheap, especially considering the size!
  • will last a long time
  • chocolate latte scented
  • thorough cleanse, but not drying

CONS

  • 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? 

Thanks for reading!

    Cosmetic Love must be my fave online site for Korean goodies! I've never had a problem with them, and have been buying from them for about a year now - they give a lot of samples too.

  24. I'm the same with skincare and makeup, if it smells like food or has a food name that I like, I generally will buy it lol I don't think I've ever tried any MISSHA product before :3 But I've heard so many great things about them.

    Are you a fan of dessert/sweet themed beauty products? Most definitely!

  26. Looks like a unique product, at least in terms of the bronze colour and chocolate scent! At least it is effective in cleansing :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow $7! That's inexpensive. Chocolate scented cleanser sounds new to me...but i think it'd be worth trying out. I'm always into scents that smell faint and light. :D Nice to hear the product works well

  29. I have this one! I bought a set of 3 at Gmarket that includes all variant. I gave the Strawberry to my aunt, but I both tried Green Tea and Chocolate. Chocolate smells the nicest, but I like the feeling of Green Tea more after rinsing. And it last me around 5 months which is pretty looooong. :)

  30. The green tea variant sounds so nice and soothing!

  31. Hi! I'm thinking about ordering this product (the Strawberry Latte one) but I have some doubts about it:
    It is recommended for daily use?
    Does it removes the BB Cream too? (I'm using Skin79 Vital Orange one)
    I'll be glad if you can help me decide! Thanks a lot :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I used mine daily, and it was fine, but I always moisturised afterwards as foaming cleansers can be a bit stripping. I actually found it quite good for removing most bb cream (not all of it), though I usually try to use a make-up remover first. Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  33. i ordered one online and i must say, this blog post of yours is very helpful. i'm so excited to see the product itself. bronze-colored facial foam?! just wow :o

    ReplyDelete
  34. is this one good for combination skin type?? please help me

    ReplyDelete
  35. I believe the chocolate one is suitable to dry/normal combination skin ^^
