REVIEW: Krave Minerale's Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash

 The long weekend here in the Philippines is over again and we are back to our daily routine.

I haven't done a review for quite some time now. I think it's about time I post a new one and it will be perfect to start it with my skin care products. See my post here on my updated skin care routine.

Let me first update you with the current condition of my skin. As you can see, my skin now is more evened out tone. I’ve encountered discolorations on the face before due to excessive sun exposure. Can you blame me? It’s really fun here in the Philippines! Beaches are everywhere haha! Thanks to my new skin care regimen, my skin now has recovered from the sun burns and dryness. Although different lightings were used on each photo, you can still clearly see a big difference.  I was never as confident as I am right now showing off my bare face. I can now go out even without makeup on.

Before and after
Photos were taken indoors using different artificial lighting.

Today, I will be talking about my facial wash which is Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash from Krave Minerale Cosmeceuticals. I am on my 2nd bottle so I have enough experience with this product already.

The product.

Before and after washing. No makeup remover was used.

Traces of eye makeup left after washing with Cupine Aloepa Facial Wash.

- I love the see through packaging which makes me see the amount left inside the bottle.

- The pump is also a plus point since I can control the amount of product to dispense. I normally use one full pump for my entire face.

- Labeled with ingredients and instructions on how to use it.

- Never tested with animals.

- All organic and natural. No harmful chemicals, such as SLS and Parabens, included so my skin is definitely in good hands. Don’t expect it to lather that much since it has no SLS.
- I would have to categorize this as a gel cleanser. (These are formulated to dissolve oil buildup and fight blemish-causing bacteria without stripping the skin. They are best for oily or combination skin types that are prone to breakouts. – Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual p. 34)

- The scent is so good. I love the citrusy smell which is so refreshing. It is addicting.

- Lastly, it is really effective in removing oil, dirt and makeup as well. Although it did left tiny bits of my eye makeup, I am still impressed because it really washed off my foundation/bb creams hence increasing the chances of my skin being free from breakouts.

- It is pricey if you will compare it with non-organic products but for me, it's affordable considering it's ingredients and effectiveness.
- Krave has distributors worldwide.


- I would want a bigger bottle since I tend to finish this 50ml bottle in a month.

- Left tiny bits of eye makeup traces. Not so big deal for me though.

Packaging = 4/5

Effectiveness = 4/5

Availability = 5/5

Affordability = 5/5
OVERALL = 4.5/5

God bless! ^_^
