Holika Holika Soda Pore Cleansing Soda Water Review


So when this product arrived in the mail I was really confused. I’ve previously used the Holika Holika Soda Pore BB Cleansing Oil and was really satisfied with that, but this product slightly threw me off guard since you have to assemble it. It comes with a small bag tied around the neck of the bottle and in that bag there’s a small soda tablet that you have to drop in the water inside the bottle, without screwing the cap back on and leave in for around 20 minutes. Then after that, the product is ready to be used.

After using this product for a while now, I’ve mainly used this product as a toner sometimes, to make sure I’ve gotten all off my makeup off when washing my face. I’ve also liked to use it for make-removal by applying it on a cotton pad before swiping my face with it. It also works with removal of eye make-up but it does have a refreshing feel to it, so therefore be careful not to get anything of this product into your eyes.
I’ve previously liked being able to take my make-up off as quickly as possible, with make-up wipes and etc, but I don’t feel like my skin is thoroughly cleaned anymore when I’ve done that. This might have to do with the fact that I’ve invested in a Clarisonic Mia 2 recently. And it sure is an investment, considering it’s price. So far when it comes to the Clarisonic Mia 2, my skin is in the purging phase but getting better. My skin did get really upset and inflamed in the beginning of using the Clarisonic so I’m happy that after using it for two weeks it is getting better now. I will post a full review of the Clarisonic Mia 2 in a month or two.

Finally I want to note that I so much prefer the Holika Holika Soda Pore BB Cleansing Oil over the soda water, the BB cleansing oil is so much beter, and it did help me combat skin redness and blemishes in the past. However this I cannot use with the Clarisonic as oil cleansers wear out the brushes a lot faster, so I use it to get my makeup off, then wash my face with The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil Cleansing wash or The Face Shop’s Rice Water Cleansing Wash (my favourite cleanser ever).
