You know how I'm a sucker for gimmicks, right?
You know how I love self foaming products, especially oxygen masks, right?
Well now Freeze 24/7 has made the ideal cleanser for me. It's self foaming and it acts like an oxygen mask to boot!
OK. Let me explain. Freeze 24-7 Skin Glace Daily Detoxifying Cleanser and Mask provides cleansing, purification, detoxification and hydration. All in one cleanser! I have been using this as a mask and cleanser for a few weeks now and I have already seen a decrease in the amount of clogged pores that have camped out on my forehead. Seriously! I wish I had taken before and after pictures but I really had no idea that this cleanser would be able to get rid of some of those clogged pores. The cleanser is also able to remove makeup and impurities as is able to moisturize and leave the skin soft. Check, Check, and Check! It's also supposed to calm irritated skin. Check!
I do have to admit that I did not use this cleanser to remove all of my makeup. I still use my oil cleansing method to do that, but I did notice that once I rinsed this cleanser off I had no residue left on the cotton pads from my toner.
The cleanser is a bit different. You are supposed to apply it to damp skin. This gel formula foams up like .... like those shaving gels that turn to foam. But not quite as foamy and this actually cleans your skin. It's pretty cool actually. You won't see bubbles per se, but you will get major foaming action. You can also use this as a mask. Leave it on for 2-3 minutes and rinse off. I kinda treat this as a mask cleanser every night. I apply it to my damp skin, let it foam up. any Mr. Sith by trying to kiss him while wearing the foamy mask.cleanser and by the time he relents it's time to wash it off. What I see when I rinse off this cleanser is clean, happy skin. My skin is not tight or overly dry, it looks happy like I just had facial and it feels soft.
I have read that some people complain about a film left on their skin after rinsing away this cleanser. I too have experienced this, but I started to use a muslin cloth to rinse the cleanser away, and since I started to do that, I have not noticed any film remaining on my skin.
According to Freeze 24/7 the Skin Glace Daily Detoxifying Cleanser and Mask contains a "proprietary complex of Bio-transformed Rice Bran and Hydrolyzed Soy Protein for deep cleansing, maximum skin purification, detoxification and hydration." It can be used as a shaving cream...humm. This product is NOT tested on animals and contains NO animal by-products. It is Dermatologist Tested, Hypoallergenic and Non-irritating. OK, The shaving cream attribute is still sticking with me because the more I used this cleanser the more I felt like I was putting shave gel on my face. BUT The more I used this cleanser the more BETTER ("more better" not grammatically correct) my skin looked. I couldn't deny the results that were staring back at me in the mirror. This cleanser is awesome!
OK. 2 cons to this cleanser.
1. The packaging. I'm not sure why the Freeze 24/7 packaging has not changed over the last decade but it really really should. From the garish red and aqua blue box to the cheap pseudo "space age" pump this cleanser is stored in, it just looks tacky. May I suggest a plastic squeeze tube or tube with a built in pump? Might I also suggest the packaging change to an icy blue and silver? I think that would look more current. I get that you have to have the whole "ice" motif with the product names, but you might want to steer away from the whole ice desserts thing. It too is tacky.
2. The second con I have is that this cleanser is EXPENSIVE! it retails for $65 for 3.3 fl oz. That's hefty for most people. If I had not been sent this cleanser I'm not sure I would have purchased it on my own. HOWEVER after seeing how much my skin loves this cleanser I can't imagine using anything else!
Do you NEED this? Maybe. If you have some chronically clogged pores, oily or acne prone skin, this might be the cleanser you have been looking for all your life. If you have Dry or Normal to Combination skin and NO pore issues, you can skip this. HOWEVER, you'll be missing out on all the self foaming, chasing your SO around the bedroom with a foamy face fun that this cleanser entails. Your loss!
