Product Review: Goodal Phytowash Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling Cleanser


      Skincare items that bubble (in the very literal sense), have become quite the trend lately in Korean skincare products. In the Korean beauty show "Get it Beauty," it was even recommended that you place your entire face in a bowl of carbonated mineral water to increase blood circulation and slightly exfoliate your face. While it looked really interesting, I never really got around to dunking my face in a bowl of bubbly mineral water. Instead, I purchased the Yerba Mate Bubble Peeling cleanser by Goodal.

Review

      You're probably really curious about whether this product "tingles" or feels like your skin is being tickled when it's applied. The answer is (surprisingly) no! It's slightly cooling on the skin however. This cleanser is a serious transformer - I've never had any cleanser that could change into this many textures. At first, the texture of the cleanser when freshly dispensed from the bottle is a light ginger-ale colored slightly sticky gel. It feels slightly sandy and grainy, but the particles are extremely fine. After rubbing it in circular motions on your skin, it starts to almost immediately foam and bubble. It can be tricky when using this cleanser for the first time because you don't have much time to spread it evenly over your face until it starts to bubble. After around 30-45 seconds, the product has entirely foamed up. Then you rub the foam off which simultaneously exfoliates your face. After you rinse off using water, you are left with something that feels more like a traditional cleanser but with minimal lather. Afterwards, my skin does look slightly brighter, but it's fleeting and by the time I apply my moisturizer the brightness is gone. The most annoying thing about this cleanser is actually the bottle - it leaks product which then foams up and makes bubbles. Not the best bottle design, but it does dispense an appropriate amount of product. In terms of scent, it smells like an average cleanser - not very helpful I know, but it's just "clean" smelling and nothing too special.

Concluding Remarks

      If you're in the market for an affordable and unique facial exfoliator, you'll want to check out this product! But if you're looking for a product that is a good but gentle facial exfoliator, this may not be the most effective product (my personal favorite effective but gentle facial exfoliators are by Tatcha and Pixi). Unfortunately it's sold out at Urban Outfitters and Birchbox, but it's still available via Amazon and Meme Box
