I use this as a second step cleanser at night (after a cleansing oil or balm). It does have a scent but it’s not grape (and not particularly pleasant, either). The aroma reminds me of bar soaps of my childhood, but thankfully it doesn’t linger.
I fully expected to hate this cleanser. In fact, it sat in my “overflow crate” (a place where I keep sealed products that I eventually want to use and review) for a long time - I didn’t even want to try it. Eventually, I ran out of my opened foaming cleansers and decided to give this one a go.
Surprisingly, I actually like it. It’s not a holy grail and most likely won’t work for people with sensitive or very dry skin. Mine is combination with some oily and some dry areas. Every so often, I like a deeper clean and that’s when I reach for the Frudia Green Grape Pore Control Scrub Cleansing Foam (why do companies make their product names so long?).
When I first used this Frudia cleanser, I absolutely LOVED it. This is why I take my time with each product before writing reviews. It was only after the 3rd or 4th use that I realized this might actually cause some people excess dryness.
This cleanser does a great job removing excess oil and making my skin feel super smooth, similar to how it feels after a clay mask. The little scrub inclusions are pretty useless to me - there aren’t enough of them to make this a physical exfoliator, but I still feel them when washing my face and I don’t love that. However, it’s not a deal breaker. I also don’t find the scent particularly appealing. If I were to use this cleansing foam daily, I would most likely dry out my skin (and my guess is the pH is a little high), but once a week or so it’s working well for me. If you have dry, sensitive, or otherwise compromised skin, I would steer clear. And I am not going out of my way to get this product again. However, for someone with combo/oily skin, especially prone to congestion, this might be a good occasional product. Not bad, especially coming from Frudia, which was featured in the Brands I Hate video.
