beauty scoop | blissoma solutions fresh mild rice facial cleanser

One of the first group of favorites I named were my favorite cream and foaming cleansers.

While I’m obsessed with oil cleansing, I do keep a few “regular” cleansers on hand for when I give myself facials or feel the need to get a little more out of my everyday cleansing routine.

A new favorite cleanser of mine isn’t exactly a foaming, cream or oil cleanser — it’s, well, rice flour!

I think I love Blissoma Solutions Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser so much because it uses so many of the beloved oils I’m used to applying during oil cleansing.

But, it has a thicker consistency that gives it some depth, as well as tiny little scrubbers that gently exfoliate during a morning wash — talk about the best of all worlds!

{As you massage the cleanser into your skin, it softens and gently exfoliates without overdrying.}

Here’s what’s inside Blissoma Solutions Mild Rice Facial Cleanser:

Organic marshmallow, organic chickweed, organic plantain, organic damask rose, organic chamomile, organic glycerin, organic sunflower oil, organic brown rice, organic coconut oil, organic apricot kernal oil, glyceryl stearate, organic willowbark extract, organic hemp oil, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, cetearyl alcohol, organic echinacea purpurea extract, essential oils of lavender, litsea cubeba, palmarosa, elemi, frankincense, vetiver, xanthan gum, rosemary oleoresin extract, organic grain alcohol, linalool, geraniol, limonene, citral

If you’re acne-prone like me, yet still experience dry spots, Blissoma Solutions Mild Rice Facial Cleanser will most likely work wonders for you, too, because of the smart combination of moisturizing oils (sunflower oil, coconut oil, apricot kernal oil, hemp oil) and acne-busting ingredients (willowbark extract, lavender, frankincense and rosemary).

Other ingredients, such as litsea cubeba and palmarosa, tone the skin while providing additional antiseptic to keep your pores clean.

This is one “regular” cleanser (and I mean “regular” in the sense of it’s not an oil cleanser) that is gentle enough to use every day.

I choose to use it in the shower in the mornings or when I’m performing fancy at-home facials. It serves as the beneficial cleansers I massage into my skin post-oil cleanse and pre-mask (and Blissoma makes a fantastic mask that I’m thrilled to review for you soon, too!).

Will I be restocking Blissoma Solutions Fresh Mild Rice Facial Cleanser in the near future? Yes!

Will I be adding it to my “favorites” list anytime soon? Abso-freakin-lutely.

    I get dry spots and flaky skin on my forehead and on my nose most of the time. So annoying. I may try this to see if it helps with that problem. Thanks for posting and reviewing it. Good to know it’s gentle enough to use everyday.

    Kimberly, I’m glad you had a great experience with the Rice Cleanser!!

    For me, my experience was the total opposite. It was incredibly drying on my already dry skin and I had to rush to apply an intensive facial oil after. It does have fantastic ingredients in it! I’m bummed that it didn’t work too well for me.

    I know! Haha, I went oh no after trying it out too. I usually stick with cream cleansers or the best would be those waterless cleansing balms!! I haven’t tried the Blissoma oils.
