Product Review: Garden of Wisdom Takrai Lemongrass Cleanser

Someone asked me to do review on this new products I've got a while ago but I was thinking I had to give it some time in order to make a wise judgment. I've used it for more than a week now and I guess it's time for me to rave about it. So here we go...

Price: 5/5 ($9.80 for 4 Oz)

Packaging: 4/5 (comes in big jar, I only wish it also provides some kind of spoon to dig up the cleanser since it can be pretty messy)

Result: 4/5 (left softer and smoother skin)

Overall: 5/5 (I adore this cleanser/exfoliator!)

Application: Open the lid, take approximately one small spoon of the product out, wet it with water, rub your hand together to dilute it and apply it on your damp face.

This is how it looks like:

How much I use per application:

- The smell, it's so refreshing, makes me wanna drink lemonade every time I wash my face.
- Markey, the GoW owner, just added Pearl Powder to the ingredients, and as we all know Pearl Powder helps with acne and is very mattifying & calming for skin.
- The price is pretty decent for the amount and quality, you can only purchase it on GardenofWisdom. This is the biggest one they got, if you're not sure whether or not you're gonna like it, you can try the smaller size which costs $2.90 for 1.Oz I went ahead and got this big jar since I've never heard anyone who purchased this cleanser and not liking it, and I can see why :D
- My skin feel sooooo soft after I use it.,I personally use this as an exfoliator, twice a week

- You have to provide your own spoon to scoop out the products, but it's not a bigga deal.

Inan sez:
- First time I open the lid, I was pretty shock on how dry this cleanser looks, I've seen it many times in other people blogs and it doesn't seem so dry, so I asked around in Garden of Wisdom forum to make sure if it was supposed to look like that. Apparently since it is handmade, every batch never look the same, some may look more watery, some are dry like mine, so nothing to worry if yours look different than others.
- I use it mainly in the evening, twice a week as a substitute for my Calamine bar soap.
- My skin seems to love it, it's very calming and the grain doesn't feel rough at all, that's probably the only thing that bothers me about exfoliating, if the scrub would hurt my face, but this feel actually good against my skin ^_^
- Definitely a staple for my natural skin care and will repurchase if I ran out.

So if you guys are looking for a harmless yet effective exfoliator, makes sure you give this one a try, I can guarantee you'll like it just like I do.

Sounds promising! Do you use it to remove your makeup as well or do you use something else?
