The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam Review

I have been using The Face Shop products for quite some time, Rice Water cleansing oil is my first product from the brand. I wanted to try out other products from the Rice Water Bright range so when my Innisfree Jeju volcanic pore cleanser face wash got over, I got myself The Face Shop Rice Water Bright cleansing foam. I expected great results with both these products together. Let's check out ahead if it fulfilled my wishes or made me regret purchasing it.

According to the Brand

How to Use

  1. Squeeze out an adequate amount on hands and massage on face to neck.
  2. Wash off using lukewarm water and finish off with cold water.
I use it in my double cleansing routine, with The Face Shop Rice Water Cleansing oil for deep pore cleansing. 

Note: Be careful while washing your face. It stings badly if it hits the eye or waterline area. My eyes were turned red when it got in my eye. 

Packaging & Texture

It comes in a soft peachy pink tube with a black flip to open cap having a small opening. The packaging is very sturdy and easy to use daily as well as carry around. The texture of the face wash is very creamy with a slight shimmer to it. However, when you rub it with some water, it will become rich and foamy. Feels very gentle on the skin and has a soothing fragrance just like other The Face Shop Ricewater collection products.

It is gentle yet cleanses well removing all the dirt and some makeup. This face wash will not make your skin feel dry and itchy after washing, leaving a soft supple feel all throughout. I have been using it right after cleansing with Rice Water cleansing oil which makes my skin feel so clean and supple. You should try this as well. With regular double cleansing, you can even get rid of tanning, dry clean, makeup and every dirty thing from your face, leaving your face bright.

But after using it for quite some time, I personally feel that it cannot clean your skin alone. It is towards the creamy side which does not make my skin dry at all, I have combination skin if you are wondering. However, this might not be suitable for people with oily skin as it will not remove all your sebum and gunk properly. It works fine as a double cleanser and you will need about 2 pea sizes in a single use.


  • Cleanses the face very well
  • Quantity is great for the price
  • Makes the skin soft and bouncy
  • Keeps the skin hydrated
  • Does not dry out the skin
  • Cleanses well
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Does not break out the skin
  • Amazing fragrance
  • Travel-friendly packaging
  • Suitable for sensitive skin


  • Does not work perfectly on makeup, might leave some traces
  • Do not give brightening effects to my skin
  • Not easily available
  • Without double cleansing, might not clean out pores properly
  • Might not be suitable for oily skin as it does not remove sebum properly
  • Stings really bad if it enters eyes

I will look for some other face wash once this tube is finished. I like squicky clean feeling and somehow, this is not giving me that. I feel like washing my face twice to get that feeling which again strips off moisture from my skin. Not a good idea right.
