TimeBalm White Tea Rose Face Cleanser

TimeBalm White Tea Rose Face Cleanser is one of the three items from that normal-to-dry skin care kit I got a few months ago. The rose-water scented cleanser, which is enriched with AHA to "gently exfoliate",  stings every time I use it (my eyes, nostrils and freshly picked scabs) but the pain lessen the more I use it (not sure if that's a good thing). The cleanser has a lotion-y consistency that doesn't really "smooth out" on the skin so I need 4-5 pumps to get enough product to cover my whole face. After washing, it leaves tiny bit of film, probably as a part of its moisturizing property, it's neither greasy or wet but I prefer a squeaky clean feel.

Overall: Not bad for what I paid ($10 bucks for 3 items and one of the them, the moisturizer turned out pretty effective) but if I were to buy a cleanser at full price, I would just go back to Burt's Bees Radiance Face Cleanser.

    1. The only one that worked was the olive moisturizer, which was rather light and hydrating. I kind of sort of want to try their blush, but they are usually picked over at TJ-maxx.

  2. I saw this at TJ Maxx and almost got it, good thing I didn't. Btw I bought the Burt's Bees Radiance cleanser from yoru review and I like it a lot! For a lotion-y cleanser it actually cleans my face quite well
