Gentle Makeup Remover by M.D. Forte Review | Daily Facial Cleanser II Gently Reduces Acne Out-Breaks

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

M.D. Forte Facial CleanserM.D Forte Facial Cleanser is suitable for any skin type, although people with dry, normal, combination and slightly oily skin usually find it more effective. There are a couple of users with sensitive skin that have used this and they found it a little irritating for their skin.

This daily use cleanser should remove makeup and dead skin cells easily as it has a higher amount of Glycolic compound. This compound is a pH balanced mixture of glycolic acid, ammonium glycolate, purified water, and higher-molecular-weight oligomers of glycolic acid.

The cleanser should leave skin cleaned deep down into pores and feeling smooth and soft.

I personally would not recommend this cleanser to those of you that have very sensitive skin. It has had an irritating effect on other users with sensitive skin and the acids in the ingredients can be a little harsh.

Users Conclusions

Jamie Kelly said on Amazon that M.D Forte Facial Cleanser helped to clear her acne. Other users found it worked great for smoothing dry skin and removing makeup. One lady said it even made her look ten years younger.

However a few patrons found it didn't remove their makeup effectively, so they had to buy a separate makeup remover.


Purified Water (Aqua), Glycolic (and) Ammonium Glycolate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Sorbitol, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.


Use a quarter-size amount and massage over wet skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry. Use either morning or night.

To Sum Up

On the whole M.D Forte's cleanser seems to work quite well. Most users said it removed their makeup and smoothed their skin.

A few ladies did find it a little irritating for their sensitive skin. Just check the ingredients before you give it a try to make sure your skin can tolerate them.

This is a little pricey for $28 but none of the users seemed to mind and some said it got rid of their acne so its worth it.

Komenuka Bijin Facial Cleansing Powder Review | Japanese Natural Rice Bran Facial Cleanser

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Komenuka Bijin Facial Cleansing PowderI love these Japanese product lines. They are always so different, it's so good how they are usually always made out of such raw natural ingredients.

Komenuka Bijin Facial Cleansing Powder is made from natural rice bran. It is so strange that it starts off as a powder, then by adding water it becomes a creamy cleanser.

This is a list of what this facial cleanser promises to achieve:

  • Deep cleaning
  • Exfoliating
  • Healing
  • Moisturizing
  • Rejuvenating/Anti-aging
  • Gentle
  • Natural
  • 107 deep penetrating anti-oxidants

A lot of beauty guru's canonize the distinguished packaging, it comes in powder form in little sachets so is ideal for traveling. There is about 30 sachets and you should be able to get 3 washes out of each, pretty good.

Users Conclusions

This product promises a lot of things but does it deliver on those promises?

I can't actually find a bad word said about it. Users love how it leaves skin feeling soft, clean, controls oil, helps prevent acne breakouts, the soothing feel, how its non irritating and good for travel.


Wet face with warm water, then pour 1/3 of the powder into your hand, add water to it, rub hands together to create emulsion, massage into face and rinse.


Rice Bran Extract, Sorbital, Aloe Extract, Algae Extract, Potassium Dna, Dehydroacetic Acid, Paraben, Potassium, Myristate, Protease. , Rice Oil, Coconut Oil, Seaweed, Ginseng, Aloe, Wheat Powder, Swertia Herb.

To Sum Up

This is a big hit for everyone who has used it so far. I don't know about you but I'm excited to give this a try!

The price is quite extravagant at $36. However, it should last a while and according to users it actually works!
