Foaming Cleanser

Huxley Cleansing Gel

Hello Readers!! Hope you had a great September!! For today’s post, I am reviewing a Foaming Cleanser, which is Huxley Cleansing Gel : Be Clean, Be Moist. This is the only Cleanser available in Brand Huxley. This is my first ever Huxley Product. I haven’t come across many people talking about it, but still I decided to give a try, after I was intrigued by seeing all the ingredients.

This is what the Product claims*:

“The Huxley Be Clean, Be Moist Cleansing Gel is an ultra-gentle SLS-free cleansing gel that melts impurities and makeup from the skin (for makeup part, I am doubtful!! 🤔). Formulated with nourishing, antioxidant rich, Organic Sahara Prickly Pear Cactus Extract to calm the skin while delivering a thorough, hydrating cleanse. Sahara Cactus Oil helps to nourish skin while deep cleaning pores for a glowing visage that’s perfectly prepped for skincare. The addition of brightening Orange, calming Asiatica and Willow Bark extracts (Okay!! Now, this is a flagged ingredient for my skin, I was very particular to seek it in ingredient list but didn’t find anywhere!! Did they write the wrong word??) leave skin balanced and hydrated”.

Read along to find out more!! 🤓

 

Skin Type: 

Huxley Cleansing Gel is suitable for Dry Skin, Normal Skin, Combination Skin and Sensitive Skin. Oily Skin might use it during Dry Winter Condition only.

 

Not Suitable for:

  • Huxley Cleansing Gel is not suitable for anyone allergic to any of its ingredients.
  • Also, this might not be the ideal choice for Oily Skin (especially, during summer…can be too mild)
  • As a makeup removing Cleanser (Too Gentle for that).

 

Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis: 

Huxley Cleansing Gel

From the ingredient list it can be seen that it contains Sahara Cactus Oil (Yes, sahara!! claims to be nourishing Skin!!), citrous fruits extracts, rich in antioxidants, contains my favourite Centella Asiatica; and free from SLS, Strong Preservatives, parabens and Mineral Oils. It does contain alcohol, but it is found at the very bottom level of the list (it is a good thing)!! Man!! Even after having so many complex ingredients, this Gel Cleanser literally has zero skin irritating or Acne triggering Ingredients. Check it out at Cosdna Analysis!! I am blown away!! 😯

 

How to use:

Huxley Cleansing Gel is an ideal Foaming Cleanser for Double Cleansing Method.

At night, I use it after my Balm Cleanser, Banila Co Clean it zero Purity (after I finished using Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Cleansing Oil); or as a mild cleanser in the morning.

To test I have used following products:

1.Nykaa So Matte Lipstick
2.NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream
3.NYX Professional Makeup Slide On Pencil
4.Chambor Dazzle Eye Liner Pencil
5.NYX Professional Makeup Epic Ink Liner

Huxley cleansing Gel
Took a pump. This much is enough for my second step in double Cleansing Method but here I am using it directly. The product is a clear Gel!!

Huxley Cleansing Gel
I know this doesn’t foam that well, especially if used directly for removing makeup!!!

Huxley Cleansing Gel
As I have already mentioned, Huxley Cleansing Gel is not an ideal Cleanser for removing makeup. It can be used directly, if one uses only sunscreen or some easily washable makeup.

I will not suggest to use this cleanser twice or thrice just to remove makeup. This will only cause wastage of product and result in over cleansing of skin, which is not a good idea!! In fact use a makeup remover and then follow up with this.

 

 

Packaging: 

Huxley Cleansing Gel comes in a huge white cylindrical type Packaging. The material used is a stiff opaque thick plastic. It has Pump type of dispenser. The bottle is actually heavy!! The only thing I don’t like is you won’t be able to see how much product is left inside!! (I know this is not a big deal!!). 😝

Huxley Cleansing Gel
It does have a locking system but still it is prone to leakage!! Not Travel friendly!!

 

Expiry Period:  Huxley Cleansing Gel has a shelf life of 3 years, and it is better to finish the product within 12 months once it is opened!!

Quantity:  Huxley Cleansing Gel comes in humongous 200 ml quantity.

Price:  I bought Huxley Cleansing Gel at a discounted price of $ 20 from Jolse.com.

It is also available at Stylekorean.com

Consistency/Texture/Fragrance: 

Huxley Cleansing Gel is moderately thick and Foams Moderately, but it feels very luxurious!! Why I like this Cleanser is that it’s very very mild and doesn’t leave sticky residue after washing and leave skin soft. Also, it has an unique fragrance!! It is mild and yet powerfully refreshing. I can describe the scent as fresh and slightly herbal!! I love it!! 😍

Even though in the picture below, foam doesn’t look very rich and dense, but it does feel smooth and rich on skin!! 😘

Under normal condition, when used at second step of double cleansing, it foams moderately!!

 

Conclusion:

In my opinion, Huxley Cleansing Gel is a perfect Cleanser for Dry Sensitive Skin. As described on packaging, It cleanses Skin and keeps it moist!! After having a failed experience with quite a few Korean Foaming Cleanser, I am happy to use this, actually more than Happy!! 😄 Most of the Foaming Cleanser are very stripping for my Dry Skin and many do contain Salicylic Acid in some or other Form and my skin simply can’t stand any version of BHA.

Pros:

  1. Free from SLS, Paraben and Mineral Oils.
  2. Not at all Stripping.
  3. Doesn’t Irritate Skin.
  4. Perfect for Double Cleansing Method.
  5. Smells amazing. It has its own unique mild fragrance!!
  6. Doesn’t contain AHA/ BHA
  7. Very Gentle.

Cons:

  1. Not travel Friendly. (But there is always a solution. Transfer the required amount in small container).
  2. Availability is an issue. Brand Huxley is not that easily available on every Korean Website!!

 

Do I recommend it? Yes!! unless you have extremely oily Skin.

Will I repurchase? Yes!! I will!! This is my favourite Cleanser so far!!

 

Rating: 5/5

Huxley Cleansing Gel is a bang on Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin. I love this Cleanser so much that above mentioned issues can be sorted out!! Am I being in favour?? Yes!! Can’t help!! 😎🤑 Now, I am planning to try few more Huxley Products!! 😉
