Yes to Coconut Melting Cleanser

P1030004

Finally we see a gorgeous melting cleanser in the drugstore/chemist range. At a fabulous price point with  lovely ingredients, is this cleanser worth trying?

My Simple Answer: YES!!!!

Yes to Claims: We’ll stop the world and melt with you! This dual-texture cleanser can be mixed with water for a creamy cleansing experience or slathered directly onto skin (sans water!) for a luxurious, balm-like feel. Either way, it’ll melt right in, dissolving dirt and makeup and hydrating with virgin coconut oil and moringa seed oil… then effortlessly rinse right off. Like buttah!

Every single word from their claim stands true, except the part of stopping the world to melt with me!

Ingredients: Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Oil, Glycerin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Sucrose Stearate, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Water (Aqua), Tocopheryl Acetate, Morinda Citrifolia (Noni) Fruit, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Psidium Guajava Fruit Extract, Orchis Mascula Flower Extract, Aleurites Moluccana Seed Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum). *Certified Organic Ingredient

Generally, coconut oils have a reputation of congesting skins but this cleanser emulsifies with water (unlike regular coconut oil) so beautifully it doesn’t leave a residue. Adding some other ingredients like Moringa, Noni, Hibiscus, Banana Fruit extract, Guava  extract, Kukui seed extract has taken a regular coconut cleanser to a new level.

In terms of consistency and texture, it is slightly denser than a gel but lighter than a balm. On contact with skin immediately melts in an oil and provides great grip. Smells Oh SO Gorgeous. I’ve never liked coconut scented beauty products (not sure why). But this one I’m reaching for time and again.

Upon adding water, it immediately emulsifies and turns into milky lushness. However per usual my preference lies with steaming face cloth compress to remove the cleanser. The scent lingers on the skin for a short while and it’s not nauseating strong. Once all done, it leaves skin super soft and supple. I don’t need to run for a toner or an oil.

It says it can melt makeup, however I like to use this as a second cleanse or a morning cleanse. Almost all skin types (including sensitive) can use this cleanser, however dry and mature skins might love this more than a teenager congestion prone skin. I think in the American Drugstore market it is one of a kind and steering the ship in the right direction, well done Yes To!!!

If you’ve tried this, have you had similar experiences?

  1. Thanks for the review, it’s good to know in advance for when (if) it arrives at Priceline! Do you think it’s on par with The Body Shop Nutriganics for makeup removal? Would it be good for a first cleanse if one was on a “budget”? I have a lot of clients left stranded after The Body Shop discontinued their cleansing balm. Thanks 😊

    1. It could remove makeup but definitely not on par with TBS Nutiganics range…. Sadly no. Although your clients have an option TBS Chamomile cleansing balm, cheap and cheerful. This performs much better as second or morning cleanse. It can be used to remove makeup as long as it’s not drag queen face👸🏻 xx

  2. Was gonna ask the same question : does it compare to Nutriganics and I see the answer is no …😀 I have enough cleansers for a second cleanse stage. Might just try the camomile butter soon.
