For double cleansing, Kanebo Blanchir offers the Clay Wash Conditioner as the second step after using the Make Off Conditioner.
This cleanser is a foaming cleanser and comes in a traditional packaging of a tube. The texture is that of a cream that lathers up into a foam. As it is a clay wash conditioner, it is more suitable for those with oily skin because it might be too drying if you have normal or normal-dry skin.
I have combination skin and if I use it by itself, then I do find my skin feeling tight after using it. If I use it after using the Make Off Conditioner or any cleansing oil, then the tight feeling isn’t there and the skin feels more comfortable. This reinforces my view that it is more suitable to people with oily skin.
I like how the cream lathers up to a soft foam. The foam really feels very soft, like cotton wool which I find nice. This means also that you only need very little at any one time. I did not have any problems nor did I have any reactions to this cleanser.
I don’t subscribe to any cleanser helping with “whitening” or “brightening” of the skin, as it is all washed away in the end so it doesn’t stay on your skin long enough to make a difference.
This cleanser retails for RM125 for a 125g tube. Pricey for something that could easily be replaced by any other cleanser, in my view. I do however, like the “soft” texture of the lather which I don’t find in the many other brands I’ve tried.
Pros: “soft” lather, cleans well
Cons: More suitable for oily skin, Expensive
