Dewytree The Clean Lab AC DEW FOAM Cleanser Review:
What attracted me to this product was obviously the package. It’s baby pink, and for some reason that seems so attractive to me when it comes to skin care! Then, I read the claims they made and felt like I really wanted to try it. Being a cleanser especially for sensitive skins, it matches what I’ve been currently using as most of my skin care. And even matches the time of the year, as the pollution is getting serious and it’s taking a toll on my skin! Also, I personally like giving some love to smaller brands, so please do read this review and find out if this is worth it.
For crystal clear and flawless dewy skin. It helps in sebum control and has a pH value of 6.6. Containing Sciadopitys Verticillata root extract and White Willow stem extract it fixes the balance of the skin.

Dewytree The Clean Lab AC DEW FOAM Cleanser Review:
I was really excited when I received this product on my mail box. I even posted it on Instagram right away, usually I wait a few days but on this case I just couldn’t wait to try it! pH balancing? Sensitive skin? Sebum control? All sounds wonderful.
Of course, start of by peeling the protective cover. This foam doesn’t have a “date after opening” mark, so you should consider it as 12 months after opening. If you want to experiment on your skin and use it longer after that date go ahead, but usually this is what dermatologists advise when there’s no date after opening.
At first squeeze it looked just like the Innisfree Broccoli gel cleanser. I don’t know if you have ever seen it, but since it’s a more well known brand (and with stores in lots of countries) I thought it would be a good comparison.
Once I paid more attention to the gel, I saw it was thick. Like a snail cream! So, rather than calling it a foam cleanser, I would call it an essence cleanser. It’s just slightly pink, I don’t even think you can see it in the photo. I wrote this after using the product several times, so I would really call it an essence cleanser (according to my experience with this product).
I tried to take photos of the foam itself, but I failed every time, so eventually I gave up and decided to skip that step. The reason I failed is that it barely foams, there’s mainly a white-ish liquid on the skin folds that doesn’t even appear properly in the photos. This above image is of my last usage of a road shop cleanser, and first usage of this cleanser. You can notice a slight change in the redness of my face, even though I was already using a gentle gel cleanser.
These are images of my continued usage of this cleanser, and you can see that it’s constant in the sense that there’s no change in the gentleness of it.
The scent is gentle, gets even gentler after you add the water (as opposite, for example, to the above mentioned Innisfree cleanser, and to the Face Shop’s mango seed cleanser, which get stronger when you add water). To describe this cleanser’s smell I would say it smells fresh like a plant, but lightly sweet as if it also had a flower scent – must be the orange flower, the rose, and the chamomile. It’s very pleasant and not aggressive at all.
The cleanser itself is very gentle and, as you can see in the photo, it calms my skin down. It reduces the redness. It calms the blemishes down and reduces my allergic itchiness. As I used it for many days in a row, I did notice some sebum control.
If I might add, this sebum controlling function matches greatly with the Etude House Soon Jung pH 5.5 balancing toner! Together they really balanced my combination skin’s differences. Not in a perfect way since a combination skin is very hardly 100% corrected, but I noticed a difference just by looking, without touching.
Other than the good things I already said, the skin is not dehydrated as it happens way too many times after cleansing, and it isn’t yelling at me to continue the skin care immediately, which means I can actually enjoy each step of skin care individually instead of rushing it to stop my skin from complaining.
I don’t know how expensive it will be once it gets released abroad, but the price in Korea is accessible enough that I would rather buy this than risk a rough and damaged skin. So, if I end up buying more cleansers (since lots of stores give them away as a promotion or a set) I would rather buy this one than a cheaper one! It is a really good cleanser, in my opinion.
