We know those makeup-removing face wipes are just about as convenient as it gets, but you’re going to want to make the switch to this face-wash-turned-makeup-remover after just one go—especially if you battle dry skin. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser is like a treat for your senses, but don’t expect the luscious suds you’re used to.

First, you have to decide what kind of clean you need. If you’re already fresh-faced (sans makeup) and just want to give skin a soothing cleanse, you can opt to use this cleanser as you would a normal face wash. But, if you have a face full of makeup, start with a dry lather by applying it directly to your skin. That’s right, we’re talking no water. Just massage it right in using your fingertips. This provides a deeper clean and better chance of removing every last trace of makeup. While you gently massage, be sure to breathe deep. You’re going to love its strong—though, surprisingly, not overwhelming—cucumber scent. Use a few splashes of cool water to rinse it off.  

Alternatively, as mentioned above, you can opt to use it more like a traditional face wash. Just mix with a bit of water in your palm before applying to your moistened face. Gently lather it up then rinse it off. 

No matter how you prefer to use Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser, it will both calm and soothe skin with a combination of rosewater and cucumber extract. Soy proteins will help keep skin healthy while providing lightweight moisture. When skincare is this relaxing, you'll never be tempted to hit the pillow without removing your makeup again.
