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!
