My Thoughts on Medicube Red Foam Cleanser

This is my review of Medicube Red Foam Cleanser

Looking into the full list of ingredients for Medicube Red Foam Cleanser, its active ingredients are Salicylic acid and Sophora extract. With 0.5% salicylic acid, it's meant to remove waste generated by large pores, dissolves sebum accumulated in pores, and keeps out dead skin cells. At the same time, Sophora extract calms irritated skin due to skin germs or various stresses.
The overall INCI list doesn't look that pleasing since it contains several comedogenic ingredients and does contain Alcohol. The main ingredients are also located at the bottom of the INCI list too.

It comes in a fully covered plastic tube with a flip cap. Packaging is simple, neat and easy to use. Labels are in English and Korean, but I'm mad that its INCI list is in Korean on the box. That is a big turn off if I'm looking to purchase this cleanser in-store.

It has a thick creamy white texture that foams and bubbles up easily when applied with water. Its thick cream creates a pleasant experience while cleansing, but it does take time to wash off completely.

Its scent isn't overwhelming and seems good to me.

I've been using this cleanser generously in my morning skincare routine for a month now, and I still have more than half to go. I did not experience any bad reactions during or after using this cleanser, but it makes my skin feel rather dry and slightly tight after each wash. I like the experience of using the cleanser as I feel that my skin is thoroughly cleansed, which removes all the gooey oily feel on my face every time I wake up in the morning.

Overall Thoughts
Medicube Red Foam Cleanser is a pretty decent cleanser. I've been using it together with the rest of its acne range. I can't really say that this cleanser is the cause for the changes in my skin since I've used it with the rest of its range, so stay tuned for my upcoming reviews for products in Medicube's Red Range. I'll write in more detail on how my skin changed this past month.
