I am always excited to get a mystery package from TIA and when I saw I had a cleanser, Kinara's Rehydrating Cleanser ($40), I was excited to try it.

My first instinct as always is read the ingredients. That's when I nose dived in disappointment.   There was COUNT them at least 5 parabens listed plus other nasties for preservatives.

To be fair I tried it for at least one month.  I do Retin A at night and Vit C serum during the day, so I need something that is gentle on those days I am irritated from the RA. Well this is NOT it. When I used this on the days I was irritated the Kinara lit me up.  My face was on FIRE! I found myself on those days going back to my Oil Cleansing Method or my very gentle foaming cleanser I normally use.

So I completely reject this cleanser due to the ingredients and the sting factor.  The price isn't nice either $40.00 for 6.7oz.  The only good thing I can say about it is a little goes a long way.

I will stick with my cheap DIY oil cleanser!

Here are the ingredients for Kinara Rehydrating Cleanser.

Water, Decyl Glucoside, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Squalane, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Bisabolol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Sorbitan Oleate, Butylene Glycol, Aminomethyl Propanol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Ethylparaben, Disodium EDTA.
