REVIEW: Lafine Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream

There are many different types of first-step cleansers such as cleansing oils and cleansing balms, but I've never tried cleansing creams until now! Today, I'm introducing the Lafine Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream which is a first-step cleanser that works to remove makeup and lift impurities off of the skin. 

We all know vegetables are good for the body, so of course, they're also good for your skin! The Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream contains 5 different vegetable extracts: Parsley, Carrot, Cucumber, Tomato, and Water Parsley. I've previously tried out the Vegetable Foam Cleansing (review here), from their same skincare line and I wasn't a huge fan of it since it left my skin feeling too "squeaky" clean and stripped. The Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream, however, was much more gentle and worked a LOT better on my skin!







LAFINE VEGETABLE DEEP CLEANSING CREAM

Extracts from these five freshest vegetables such as cucumber, carrot, water parsley, tomato, and parsley contained in the cream makes your skin resilient and dewy. It is a deep-cleansing cream that removes wastes and makeup residues that are left on the surface on the skin.

The Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream takes the place of your first-step cleanser, replacing cleansing oils, cleansing balms, and the like. It's meant to remove makeup and other impurities on the skin while still being hydrating (hence it being a cream)!

The Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream (200ml) comes in a huge leafy green tub that synonymous with vegetables. The cap also features the main 5 vegetable extracts present in their cream, which gives in further to their healthy aesthetic.


Included with the tub of cleansing cream is an inner lid beneath the twist-off cap, which prevents the product from spilling out and a large spatula that's meant to scoop out the product. Using spatulas with jar type products is very hygienic and essential in keeping germs at bay! This one fits perfectly on top of the inner lid and under the twist-off cap for safe keeping each time you use it.


The texture of the cleansing cream is just what you'd expect from a regular cream; it's a white lotion-like cream that's thick and a little bit heavy. It reminds me a lot of the cleansing foam from the same skincare/cleansing line - they both have tiny green and red beads inside! Though, these aren't your average beads, but rather they're granules made up of vegetable extracts that dissolve giving your skin further nutrients. The cleansing cream also has a very veggie-like scent reminiscent of fresh cucumbers.


For those of you who are unfamiliar with cleansing creams, start with a dry face, even if it's filled with makeup. Using the spatula, scoop up a generous amount to cover your entire face. Gently massage the cream into the skin, making sure the green and red beads completely dissolve, so that your skin's getting the best benefits. Once your makeup begins to melt and blend in with the cream, use a tissue and wipe off the cream. Double cleanse with a foaming cleanser to rid the skin of any leftover residues.

I tested this on a wide variety of different makeup formulas, which you can see in the photos below. What I like about the Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream is that it's incredibly gentle on the skin! It feels like I'm just massaging my face with a moisturizing cream since it has the same texture and feel. It's hydrating on the skin and doesn't strip my skin of any of its natural oils or leave it feeling too uncomfortably tight. Performance-wise, it's does a very decent job at removing makeup, however, it struggles to remove waterproof makeup, especially eye and lip makeup, completely.




My face is left feeling cleaner, brighter and more supple. It leaves behind a hydrating feeling on the skin, but not exactly an icky film. It's not sticky or greasy per say, but it feels like I have a layer of moisturizer on my skin. As a personal preference, I like to make sure everything is completely off, so I always follow up with a foaming cleanser! 





FINAL THOUGHTS

The Vegetable Deep Cleansing Cream does a good job at what it claims to do - it removes makeup from the skin and lifts off dirt leaving the face clean from impurities. However, it does struggle with completely removing waterproof makeup, so I'd definitely recommend using a separate eye-makeup remover! The cleansing cream is very gentle on contact and leaves the skin cleaner, brighter, bouncier and soft to the touch. Because it's a cream, it's very hydrating and leaves behind a thin layer that feels like I just applied a moisturizer. It's not icky or greasy, but it does require finishing up with a foam cleanser to get rid of the film!

If you're looking for an easy to use makeup remover and you don't wear much waterproof makeup, definitely check out this cleansing cream! However, if you do wear a lot of waterproof makeup, then you might want to skip this one and stick with oil cleansers since they do a better job with stubborn makeup.
