This review was created in partnership with eAccountable and contains affiliate links. I received Planet Beach Cleanse Herbal Facial Cleanser for review and opinions are my own.
As my interest in and love for cosmetics has not only continued to grow, but morph into an addiction/hoarding situation (fueled mostly by my ipsy subscription), I have really had to step up my cleansing game.
We all know that not properly taking off your makeup before bed every night or following a daily skincare regimen can damage your skin and age you prematurely. As a late-comer to the beauty scene, having really only gotten into experimenting with my daily beauty look in the last couple of years, I have never had a go-to facial cleanser that I’ve been loyal to for years. I’m basically navigating through products in the dark right now, ready to try anything in hopes of someday finding that one product I can say has worked for me. So when I was asked if I would be interested in trying out Planet Beach’s Cleanse Herbal Facial Cleanser, I don’t have to tell you how fast I jumped on that.
Planet Beach Cleanse is a pH balanced herbal facial cleansing gel for all skin types, formulated to penetrate the pores to deeply cleanse and protect skin from bacteria and fungus. With key ingredients aloe vera extract, white oak bark extract, sodium, beta carotene, and collagen, it works as an overall cleanser and astringent that can help tighten the skin without drying it out.
In addition to being labeled as enriched with organic ingredients, I really liked seeing that Planet Beach does not test on animals.
Each morning and night, I used a nickel-sized amount of cleanser on my face and neck. The thin, pink liquid, while boasting a natural key ingredient list, smells kind of chemical-y, but after just the first time I used it I couldn’t believe how soft and smooth my skin felt. It adequately removed my daily makeup, though like most other standard cleansers, it did fail to remove all of my mascara. Overall, my skin felt clean, softer than I have ever felt it before, and it was really impressive. And then I began to break out. At first it was just a single new blemish and I didn’t think much of it. After another couple of days, I had some more. After almost two weeks of using Cleanse twice daily, I have a chin and jaw speckled with straight-up acne.
My fickle skin is well-documented. Even a product I’ve used without incident for a while can suddenly start to cause chaos with whatever is going on with my skin. At this point I can never be sure exactly what is causing a specific skin-related issue, but I can confidently say that as far as my daily skincare regimen goes, I have only used Cleanse along with a light moisturizer, aside from my daily makeup that I always remove every night before bed, in order to facilitate this review as accurately as I possibly could.
Planet Beach Cleanse Herbal Facial Cleanser didn’t work out as well as I thought it would, and I’m still searching for that tried and true cleanser that will keep my acne-prone skin under control in the long-term. But that doesn’t mean I can’t still get use out of the cleanser I have left.
While marketed as a facial cleanser, Planet Beach Cleanse can be utilized for a myriad of other personal uses in areas that aren’t so acne-prone. Because it is a pH balanced general cleanser, it can be used as a feminine wash and liquid body wash, flushing away excess oils, waste from perspiration, soot, smog residue and other air pollutants, perfumes, and high fragrance products. It can also be used as a bubble bath and gentle shaving gel.
