Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam Review:
I was very much excited for September to come because it’s my birthday month, only to be left distressed. It had been an emotionally challenging month, to say the least. Unfortunately for me, all the stress, sleepless nights and binge eating have taken its toll and it shows all over my face. I had a massive breakout (yay for the breakout of the year) and it’s starting to sadden me. Instinctively, I went on to a skincare diet. I discontinued using acids and putting new stuff on my face to avoid (acne) triggers and just let my skin breathe.
I focused on hydration/moisturization to help my skin heal but even with outmost effort to battle acne, it seems that I am losing. Another day, another acne; that’s how it’s been for weeks and I was starting to get overly sad about it. I looked for a potent ingredient that fights acne and tee tree caught my attention.
Since my skin reacted well with Naruko mask (green) when I last broke out, I considered getting my hands on anything tea tree. And since I am almost done with my Cosrx Low pH cleanser (I’m not entirely impressed, plus I hate the smell), I thought I should replace it with another tea tree cleanser and that’s how I ended buying Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam!

Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam Review:
Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam comes in a huge, sturdy, pump-type bottle. I love that they used a transparent packaging so I am able to tell how much product is left. I have used a similar type of product before from Biore (a Japanese brand) so I am not entirely new with bubble foams.
The lazy in me enjoy this kind of cleanser because you don’t have to warm things up to produce foam; you get foam straight from the bottle! How cool is that, right? The pump dispenses well and gives just enough amount of product. I use about three to four pumps of this for my whole face and neck.
As you can see, Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam produces white foam. I was actually worried that the scent would be overpowering (like Cosrx Low pH) but I’m happy to report that it doesn’t. I can definitely detect tea tree scent, but it so mild that do not even mind leaving it on my face for few minutes.
I have tried using it as face cleanser but I’m afraid it cannot cleanse thoroughly alone. I feel that there’s a tinge of sunscreen and cushion foundation sitting here and there. Since I observed this, I use The Saem White Tea Tree Cleansing Water as my first cleanser, followed by this cleansing foam as my second cleanser and it works well that way.
Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam lathers well, and I’m happy to report that it doesn’t cause stinging or any sort of uncomfort whenever I use this despite the presence of active/open pimples. While it is very foamy, this product is easy to rinse off! I can also say that it is an efficient cleanser because my face feels so clean after using it but not squeaky clean. My face is probably screaming for joy because of this.
But really, let’s get down to its claim. Does it really help with acne? I’m sure you’ve been dying to know! I’m gonna cut the chase, yes, this cleanser helps in fighting acne. Before I introduce this to my routine, I get a new pimple almost every day; cystic and painful, small bumps, you name it and I got it!
I love it primarily because I noticed that it helps with drying out pimples, but not my overall skin. I feel that the tea tree content of this product is just about the right amount to calm my skin. To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t expecting any of this because it is just a cleanser after all!
But after using it for almost two weeks, I’ve also observed that acne occurrence has downsized too! Whether it’s because I am less stressed out nowadays or that I am not as sleep deprived as before, I’m sure that this product has helped a lot in my skin’s progress.
Overall, I am deeply in love with Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam! I don’t usually say this, but this product crawled up on my HG list easy. With that said, I highly recommend this product to people who are currently experiencing breakout. While I am aware that YMMV, I’d say that this product is really worth a try!
