I featured this Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Everyday Cleanser product on my October Faves list and I mentioned this was honestly an impulse buy.
I was just passing time at Beauty Bar and ogling at various makeup when I suddenly remembered that I cannot buy any more cosmetics! So I then walked away from the shelves carrying makeup and explored the skin care section, which I do not normally do. I noticed they do not offer a lot when it comes to toner, at least in the branch where I went to.
But the curious cat in me spotted this attention-grabbing SO TOTALLY CLEAN toner in an instant! With a font that big, it is hard to miss. Naturally I picked it up and inspected it. I do not know about you, but this brand Formula 10.0.6 is so foreign to me!
A quick background on this brand according to its website:
Formula 10.0.6 excels at perfecting troublesome young skin with ingredients that work. Created by a chemist in 1933, the current range now includes skin care products specifically designed to promote clear, healthy skin.
Is this Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Everyday Cleanser Worth It?
I was hesitant to buy this at first, but I felt that I spent a whole lot of time inside the store already and the SA was very accommodating, that it does not seem right to just walk away. So there goes my Php 545.00! Plus, I bought the NO TIME TO SHINE Oil-absorbing Mud Musk (Php 120.00) also from the same brand. I have not tried that one yet, but it also looks promising! Anything that will make oil on my face disappear is a must-try for me. Let us just hope it works, I will keep you all updated.
Now back to our main product! Here is what it says on the packaging:
This unique, alcohol-free cleanser and toner wipes away dirt and oil for a clean, smooth complexion. Sea Kelp clears impurities, while cucumber and chamomile refine pores and reduce oiliness. Use daily for soft, balanced and fresh skin.
Yes, you read that right, it is a cleanser and toner in one. I have been using this for the past few weeks and already I noticed a slight improvement on my face.
The active ingredients such as sea kelp, cucumber and chamomile made my face more refreshed, hydrated and clearer. But in terms of its promise on “reduce oiliness,” my overall facial routine could also contribute to the lesser oil production on my face lately, so I do not want to give the full credit to this product alone.
It does not sting at all, unlike my previous cleansers / toners where my face felt burning sensation and my cheeks turned red. The direction at the back even states that this is safe for use around eye area!
What really sold me to this is the alcohol-free part. Toners that contain harsh ingredients like alcohol can dry out even the most oily skin. I am really happy I discovered this toner and I would definitely repurchase when I ran out of this.
What about you? What’s your toner? Do let me know if you have any alcohol-free toners in mind!
