Hi gorgeous,

This has launched their own product called the Bare Essentials.  This new line is picking up on Korean newest trend on skincare diet that has been picking up the trend since 2016.  It is a trend that focuses on the basic skincare steps-cleanser, toner and moisturiser.

Does this Countour Cleanser really make the face sharp and make the face look smaller?  Jump to the end of the review.

Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser comes without a box but it is wrap in plastic.  The frozen looking plastic tube allows one to see the amount of product inside.  It has white looking paste and one needs very little to foam up a lot of cleanser. I could also feel the micro capsules which breaks when mix with water.

There is a light powdery scent in the cleanser. The toner and the cream also has the same scent.  The cleanser does last a long time because one need very little.


As for the ingredients, the glycerin does help in making the cleanser not drying comparing to the usual foam cleanser.  It uses derivatives of coconut oil and palm oil as cleanser ingredients in it.  There are surfactant for foaming cleanser presented so do check it out.  Potassium hydroxide can be irritating to some skin type.
I do feel the cool feeling which is because of the menthol inside the cleanser.
Some ingredients such as lactose, vitamin E, ice plant extract, lemon are to lessen the drying effect of foam cleanser.
As for the micro capsules feeling and the exfoliating feeling, it might because of the Microcrystalline Cellulose and salt presented in the cleanser.

It is called contour cleanser for reduces swelling for a defined face shape and improving blood circulation.  Skin does feel clean and it does remove even the felt eyeliner that I have drawn on as seen from the photos.  The cleanser has a pH of 7-8.  I can't really use it much because my skin apparently doesn't really like foam cleanser and synthetic fragrance.  My skin gets irritated from a lot of foam cleansers nowadays.

I don't really like Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser for my skin type.

Overall, Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser is suitable for people who love foam cleanser, don't mind fragrance and doesn't have skin that is easily irritated like mine.
