I normally use coconut oil as a facial cleanser, but I was interested in trying MG Skincare Soothing Facial Cleanser to compare both products. In this blog post, you will find out what’s in MG Facial Cleanser and how it compares to coconut oil.
About MG Skincare Soothing Cleanser
MG Skincare Soothing Facial Cleanser is a gentle, non-drying cleanser that is made with natural ingredients. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.
This cleanser comes in a no-fuss, white bottle and is suitable for all skin types. It has a pleasant scent and removes dirt and makeup with no issues.
The aloe vera and oatmeal in this product are perfect for those with sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea. In addition, the cleanser is non-foaming and gentle, allowing you to cleanse your face without irritating your skin.
What’s in MG Skincare Cleanser:
- Aqua – simply water
- Aloe Vera – antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, has skin healing properties, fights damaging effects of pollution/UV and moisturises
- Oats – reduces dry skin and itchiness
- Avocado – hydrates and is good for dry skin
- Jojoba – a rich source of antioxidants, also reduces acne breakouts
- Sunflower oil – hydrates skin and calms irritation
- Beheneth-10 – cleanser and emulsifier
- Glycerine – reduces oily skin as it is non-comedogenic, doesn’t clog pores, and aids hydration
- Xanthan Gum – a thickening agent and texture enhancer
- Benzyl Alcohol – a preservative and an antioxidant
- Phenoxyethanol – a preservative, prevents bacterial growth. It can cause allergic reactions in some people.
- Potassium Sorbate – a preservative
- Cocamidopropyl Betaine – cleansing, hydrating and excellent at removing makeup
This cleanser is great at removing both make-up and daily grime. It’s presented in simple packaging and is easy to use. In addition, it makes your face feel less greasy than coconut oil. It can be used day or night (oil-based products can’t be used in the morning, as they may cause your skin to burn in the sun).
This product has a similar subtle scent to a cleanser I previously used. You don’t need loads, just put a small amount on a cotton pad each time and rub into each area of your face in a circular motion.
There isn’t an awful lot you can say about a facial cleanser, but I have few complaints about this one. One small criticism is the expense, as it’s over £15 and you go through the bottle quite quickly.
Overall, you can’t go wrong with this product. It’s pleasantly scented, suitable for red, itchy, dry, or sensitive skin and has non-irritating ingredients (apart from Phenoxyethanol which some people react to). It makes a wonderful addition to your morning and evening beauty regime.
