I have so many foaming cleansers in my current rotation but I decided to give NYX Stripped Off Whipped Cream Cleanser ($8) a whirl recently because the fact NYX has a skincare collection now intrigued the hell out of me.
And hey, if you by some chance got yourself a Bubble Maker after my review yesterday, I highly suggest grabbing NYX Stripped Off Whipped Cream Cleanser because it works a treat with bubble makers!
Here’s some deets and my review.
NYX Stripped Off Whipped Cream Cleanser is actually a pretty traditional collagen-like foaming facial cleanser much like you’d get from Japan or Korea. Keep that thought in mind when purchasing it because not everyone is used to collagen-like formulas and they are surprised at how odd the texture can feel during the cleansing process.
This is a thick, creamy cleanser that resembles Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser. Dude, remember when you were obsessed with Clean & Clear everything growing up? Or was I alone in that feeling? I remember having like three bottles of the Deep Action Cream Cleanser because I loved that tingle. Surely, the tingle meant it was giving me a deep clean! Needless to say if you’ve used that formula you’ll be right at home with the thicker, creamier texture of this one. This has a light floral scent which I hate and I’d liken to the scent of toilet paper as in like that weird don’t squeeze the Charmin scent. The scent reminds me of a lot of Japanese cleanser like Happy Bath Day products. It’s just a scent I’m really not enamored with!
Fragrance aside, the formula is great especially if you’re using it with a Bubble Maker. It creates ton of lather and has a certain slick feel on your face that’s where the collagen thing comes into play. A lot of collagen cleansers from Japan have a certain slick feel during the cleansing process. It can be potentially unexpected and weird if you never tried a cleanser like this. But don’t worry it, it rinses clean away. This gives skin a very deep cleanse but I’d suggest following up with a cleansing milk after if you’re a double cleanser or a hydrating mist and emulsion to restore any loss moisture as it does strip a little bit and leave skin feeling a touch dry.
If you can get past the fragrance, NYX Stripped Off Whipped Cream Cleanser will get you a nice, deep cleanse with plenty of lather. It’s a perfect AM shower cleansing companion! And if you have a bubble maker it’ll work perfect with it.
