Mild and gentle are certainly two words that best describe Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser from Blissoma ($31.99). The website tells us it is 100% vegan and 100% natural and predominantly organic. The non-soap, daily cream facial cleanser is suitable for all skin types. It contains 18 actives, omegas 3, 6, 9,; A, B, C, D, E; salicin, allantoin, polysaccharides. It has organic, whole brown rice flour and willow bark extract to gently exfoliate, emollient organic oils to moisturize. For the price, this is an incredible bargain.
The application instructions are to use 2-3 pumps twice a day, rinse with warm water and pat dry, then tone and moisturize.
I am 61, with combination skin and occasional breakouts and redness. After two months of evening use, my skin feels soft, smooth and with less redness and breakouts. I stopped using the product in the mornings because during this hot, humid summer, my skin felt too oily during the day. The exfoliators are certainly mild, unlike some cleansers that made my skin feel very tight and felt as though I was using sand to cleanse my face.
I have one small caveat about the pump. Because of the thinness of the lotion, sometimes the pump would shoot the cleanser in different directions and miss my hand or dribble down the bottle. I now cup my hand around the pump and the problem is solved.
I recommend Blissoma's Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser and will certainly buy it in the future.
