Review | MAXCLINIC Purifying Vitamin Oil Foam & Cloud Embo Massage Brush

By Sarah - Friday, July 29, 2016

I am quite obsessed with these new cleansers which turn from oil to foam upon contact with water. A few have been popping up in the market recently and aside from being intrigued upon it foaming up, I do like the idea of using an oil to clean off any makeup residue before the final cleanser. This just sums up both steps into one product.

In my BNT Beauty Box for July, I received the Maxclinic Purifying Vitamin Oil Foam and Cloud Embo Massage Brush and had to test them out.

Made with natural ingredients and a handful of natural oils like Jojoba, Olive, Argan, Orange Blossom, Ylang Ylang, & Damask Rose oil for a refreshing cleanse. It also contain Kakadu Plum Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Camu Camu extract that specifically targets skin brightening.This cleanser comes in a pump, which I do enjoy as it is neat and convenient. The bottle is tinted blue, but otherwise, the product itself is a clear, viscous gel with little beads (containing French clay - to aid in the removal of dead skin cells and to control sebum).

This cleanser came with a brush (uniquely shaped like a flower) as well. The brush is extremely dense and the bristles feel really soft against the skin. According to instructions, the back of the brush has a V-pad (ridges shaped in a downwards arrow) and can be used to massage the face before flipping over and using the bristles to further massage and lather the cleanser. Personally, I found that it was not entirely comfortable using the V-pad to massage the face. The bristles, on the other hand, felt nice on the skin and lathered the cleanser up pretty well. To dry, simply squeeze out any water and leave it upright overnight to dry.

On its own, I do find that the cleanser does not foam up entirely well and the brush definitely helped with lathering it up. Here is the texture of the cleanser on its own:

I could not find a full ingredients list for the cleanser in English, so that was unfortunate. Despite so, I do quite enjoy using this at night as a final step before skincare to ensure that my skin is thoroughly cleansed. My skin feels clean without feeling tight after cleansing, and that is definitely a good sign.

I managed to find a listing for this cleanser on, and it retails for SGD 60.25 (+ SGD 3 shipping). That is pricey and for that price, there are better alternatives elsewhere. However, if you're heading to Korea, this could be something you might want to look out for!

Thank you to BNT News for sending me this to try!

Till next time,
