Live Clean Fresh Face™ Hydrating Creamy Cleanser Review

I've been using Live Clean haircare for years! They branched out into skincare but for some reason, I overlooked them when it comes to skincare. What a mistake that was!

I recently began using their Hydrating Creamy Cleanser and I am completely nuts over it!

This cleanser is part of Live Clean's Fresh Face™ skincare line:
Live Clean Fresh Face™ is a luxurious collection of eco-friendly skin care promising exceptional performance with natural plant-based ingredients and pure essential oils.

Live Clean had created over 50 personal care products before they created their Fresh Face™ line of skincare. Being aware of the skin sensitivities that many of us are experiencing these days, they set out to create a line of skincare that is gentle, calming and soothing. Created with plant and natural based ingredients this line is also hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and effective for even the most sensitive skin types.

Richly textured, our Live Clean Fresh Face™ Hydrating Creamy Cleanser lives up to its name, deeply cleansing without stripping your skin of moisture. While Kaolin Clay rids your skin of impurities, oil and makeup, effectively cleansing blocked pores, our creamy, moisturizing, oil-free formula maintains the perfect moisture level. Live Clean’s trademarked Botanical Orchid-C Complex™ brings the proven rejuvenating capacities of both Vitamin C and the Orchid flower. Lavender, Cucumber, Chamomile, Milk Thistle, Aloe and Jasmine soothe the skin.  The result – skin that’s perfectly clean and hydrated. Ideal for normal to dry skin.

Before I share all of the benefits that I've found so far, I want to share a bit about my skin type: oily/combo, aging, dehydrated, reactive, and acne prone. I know, great combo!

My Experience:
This cleanser immediately reminded me of cleansers that I've tried from natural, high-end spas- it's very similar but even better! 

It comes in a sleek bottle, which I love as it doesn't take up too much space. It also comes with a handy pump which is always appreciated. 

I find that 1/2 a pump is all I need for my face and neck. The scent is very delicate and fresh and also reminds me of those high-end spa cleansers. The texture is hard for me to describe, it's like a gel/cream and creates a luxurious lather when massaged into damp skin.

It feels so good on my skin. It immediately feels gentle, hydrating, and soothing to my skin. When I find skincare that I love this much, I want to bathe in it. That's my first sign that I'm totally in love with a product.

After massaging it into my skin for about 1 minute, I remove it with a wet micro fibre or baby washcloth. I find that my skin is left clean but not stripped, it's left feeling like a babies bottom and I find it difficult to stop touching my face. My skin feels so hydrated like I could go without moisturizer if I wanted to. But, let's face it, as a skincare junkie that's not going to happen! 😊

My skin looks brighter, clearer, and a lot less angry since using this cleanser, the redness I had is gone! My skin is just loving this cleanser! I would never even expect these results from a cleanser, so to say this exceeded my expectations is an understatement. But, I should have known better since I know what great ingredients Live Clean uses in their products.

From the ingredients to texture and performance, this product is very similar to what I've found in natural, high-end spas. I am thrilled that I can now get a fabulous cleanser that is just like a spa product that is accessible and affordable. This just goes to show that you can't judge a book by the cover.

This product is 98% plant-based, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, cruelty free, and eco-friendly!

Live Clean also has a foaming cleanser for more oily skin types, which I will probably use in the summer when I'm more oily.  Although this one is touted for normal-dry skin, it's beyond amazing for my combo/oily skin because I am also dehydrated.

Now, I'm super excited to try out other products from Live Clean's Fresh Face™ Skincare line!

If you give this product a try I'd love to hear your experience too!

  1. How did you find this for your breakouts and did you use a toner after?

    1. I've been using for 3 weeks now and I haven't experienced any new breakouts and the existing ones are healing. I think it's the Kaolin Clay in the product which cleanses blocked pores and impurities. I do use a toner but I stay away from toners with alcohol. Sometimes I use Micellar water instead of a toner. Hope this helps! xo

  2. It sounds like such a lovely cleanser xx

  3. They have a crazy amount of hard to keep up

  4. This cleanser sounds lovely! I always go for gentle cleansers, it can be such a harsh stage of skincare, so I always opt for something simple xx
