Today I’m sharing my impressions of Kaia Juicy Bamboo facial cleansing cloths.  

What’s in it and what’s not in it

According to their website, these cloths are a “natural cleanser, toner, eye makeup remover that doesn’t fry your skin.”

  • Purest cleansing cloth on the market
  • Soaked in vitamins B12, C, E
  • Lifts and dissolves makeup without stinging eyes

It also contains honey and 8 natural plant oils and is free from parabens and sulfates.

The bamboo fabric is softer than any non-woven towelette I’ve ever used yet it still has enough texture that it gives a deep clean sensation. Compared to other facial cloths I’ve used it’s relatively dry feeling. That’s nice because that means there’s no solution dripping down your  face. However, I had the sense that it doesn’t provide as much cleansing for heavy duty makeup removal.  I haven’t been using much makeup lately so I wasn’t able to really put it to the test, so  I checked with the Left Brain to get a sense of how effective these natural ingredients are at removing greasy makeup.

It turns out that while the cloths are sulfate free, as claimed, they do contain a couple of mild surfactants (like sodium stearoyl lactylate) which help remove makeup.  All these ingredients are not listed on Kaia’s website but I’m copying them below from the back of the package.

Kanebo Sensai Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil and Creamy Soap Reviews

August 7th, 2010

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Proper cleansing is the first step to clear skin, which is why I have been practising the Asian Double Cleansing routine for over 10 years now. The routine involves using two complimentary products, normally a cleansing oil to dissolve makeup and sebum followed by a creamy/foamy soap to remove residue and gently exfoliate. I have tried all kinds of products out there and my newly discovered Kanebo Sensai Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil and Silky Purifying Creamy Soap, are handsdown the best! The Silky Purifying Cleansing Oil contains Koishimaru Silk to keep …
