Rosette Hello Kitty Cleansing Wash Review, Photos, Swatches

You probs remember all my Rosette Hello Kitty reviews from several months ago, if not, check the archives for those gems.

Rosette actually has a Hello Kitty Facial Sheet range that I haven’t yet indulged in but I did recently pick up the Hello Kitty Cleansing Wash they do. I already own the foaming one but this one has little tiny grains in it for exfoliation.

Yay for anything that scrubs away my dry, flaky skin…ok, I admit it, I didn’t technically buy it for that reason….I just dig that cat.


A mineral oil free exfoliating, foaming cleanser!

This comes in a rather cute Hello Kitty tube but don’t be swayed into believing the sweet packaging is all there is to it!

This cleansing wash has a crunchy, tart apple scent and is mineral oil free. It’s a traditional Asian foaming wash that starts off life as a rich cream which works into a super lather when water is added. Tiny grains in the mix exfoliate skin while the lather removes makeup, dirt, and oil!

It does a mighty fine job of getting my skin squeaky clean and works as a mild exfoliator to soften dull, dry patchy areas. I had no problems with a tightness after use and thought it made a great pick for using every other day in between my normal cleanser to remove dry, dull areas.

Nothing super bad here outside of the fact that it is available in Asia only but Sasa has it at a very reasonable $8 price tag!

  • Anyone looking for a foaming face wash with mild exfoliating properties.
  • Hello Kitty fans (come on, tell me you don’t want to own Hello Kitty skincare? That’s boss!).

  • Anyone who isn’t interested in online shopping or dealing with airmail.

I actually liked this alot. It has all the great benefits of a good Asian foaming face wash with added grains for a nice, mild exfoliation. At $8 it’s very close to retail price on www.sasa.com as well. And hey, even though the packaging is kawaii it does indeed house a very nice cleanser too!

Loves it!

    ooo one of my asian markets sells this. the price is about $16 is this worth the jacked up price?

    • the Muse

      ouch tina…ouch…lol no not really. It’s nice but unless you LOVE HK you really don’t need it for $16! I paid six bucks for it…jebus!

        oh man…this store sells a lot of the skincare you review on here but the price is about 2-3X more than the price you list here…:(
        but thanks for your input!

    Hello Muse!
    I have a question about exfoliators in Japan— Do you have any recommendations? It’s not even winter yet and I’m starting to get the flakes!
    I’ve heard good things about gommage-type exfoliators like Natural Aqua Cure, but that’s so expensive.. Do you know of any cheaper alternatives? What do you use to get rid of the flakies in Japan?
