Hongik Skin Real Oh Bubble The Hayan GT-Cleanser

Bubbly fun. Those are the words that comes to my mind to describe this product. I was really surprised when I first tried this product. At first, I thought it's just another foamy cleanser that you would usually find in the market. To my surprise, it is nothing like a foamy cleanser. This product works and foams by itself once comes in contact with your skin, without the need of water. Sounds magical, right?

Reveals skin's youthful angelic glow. As described on Hongik Skin website, Real Oh Bubble The Hayan GT-Cleanser has three main functions: pore tightening, deep cleansing, as well as brightening. Containing many beneficial natural extracts such as mung bean, papaya, soybean, and other plants, as well as oxygen, this cleanser combines all the benefits from the different ingredients for supple and healthy skin.

When the cleanser bubbles up on your skin, the foaming process works by deeply penetrating your pores, removing all kinds of madness dirt and dead skin cells and brightens it up. Not entirely sure about it because all I can find on the website was in Korean but I believe that's what I get when I tried and used it myself -If any of you understand Korean, please enlighten me if there's anything I misunderstood- Keep reading if you want to know my experience using it.

Comes with a frosted glass container with bright blue and fun cartoonish packaging, it is filled with 120ml of product. It is huge and will take some time to finish. Don't you just love it when you get a lot of product in one packaging? Oh yeah I do. Not so great for travelling though, considering that it is huge, heavy, and fragile.

It is very simple to use. All you have to do is slather the product directly onto your face, it doesn't have to be wetted but you can if you prefer to. Distribute this creamy cleanser evenly across your face, massage a little here and there, and enjoy thick fluffy bubbles foaming up for a minute or two before the bubbles start to slowly pop and dissipate. The bubbles this cleanser created are super dense and fine. It might feel ticklish during the first few times using it but I am actually enjoying the funny sensation after a little while. So bubbly fun!

Do you see what I mean? Let's now test its cleansing power. It works wonders to cleanse light makeup. I didn't put any pressure on the test below and I was surprised to see how it successfully removed a little bit of the waterproof mascara and stubborn eyeliner. Not good enough but still it proves that it can removes light makeup.

Using this cleanser, I think my skin felt clean, squeaky clean . A good thing I guess, it's doesn't feel overly dry and tight like some foaming cleanser I tried before. I do wish it feels a little more hydrating for my dry skin though. I would only use this cleanser at night because I need a gentler and moisturizing cleanser in the morning to prevent dry patches. I think this cleanser would be amazing for those of you with normal to oily/combination skin.

Another negative point of this cleanser is its smell. While other BNTgirls didn't find it unpleasant, I do think it has quite a strong weird smell to it which reminds me of hair products -as in hair coloring liquid / hair tonic- Yikes. I know. It's probably just me and my weird nose. It grows on me after a few times using it but the smell still bothers me.  I could still tolerate the smell if I am to use it once/twice a week but definitely not as an everyday cleanser. But if you can tolerate smells/perfume in your skincare products then I guess it shouldn't be much of a problem.

I love all the fun parts of bubbles foaming up and how it calms me however, I'm not a fan of how it smells and I wish it's just a tad bit more hydrating as I have dry skin. I can see how this cleanser would be great if you have normal-oily/combination skin. I would use this once/twice a week, more as an additional cleansing step to my night routine because I love how it cleanses deeply into my pores and the relaxing sensation I get but I wouldn't replace it for my current cleanser.
