Fancl Botanical Force Essence Washing Foam maybe up to your skin condition

I (Cherry) bought it on 2015, it was really good to use in Summer, I bought it again on 2016, but in this summer, I found there were so many products to be used. I opened it but used only few times. I sent it to Sarah of Hong Kong to be reviewed.

Please see both the reviews 🙂

Review by Cherry written in 2015

Fancl Botanical Force Essence Washing Foam is a face wash and one of the items what we chose Japanese Girl’s Beauty Box March 2015.

Today, let me (Cherry) share with you my personal review of this face wash.

I often use other brands, but Fancl is the brand what I return to. This Botanical Force is a new line. I was a little bit excited to use.

I used cold water. Yeah, it is not pretty good to make rich bubble. But see this!

I could make bubble. Those rich bubble will help you to wash your dirt gently. Do not try to touch your face by your hands. Keep bubble as cushion between your hand your face.

I dislike perfumed products, but I love scent of essence oils. When I opened the tube, I found there are herbal scent. Nice!

I had thought this may good for me, when I rinsed well,  sadly I found my skin is dried. This is too strong for my skin now.

The good point is, I did not feel any stinger or something irritated on my lips and eye rids.


I do not recommend for you those who has dried, rough, and weaken skin like me. This is too strong for you. I recommend Ignis VQ Face Wash if you like those tube type face wash. It is another kind of herbal scent. THREE Balancing Face Wash is also attractive, but it may also stronger than VQ.

I guess this is the product for you who are looking for face washes which clear your dirt well, and refresh.

It was really good to using this on Summer.

Review by Sarah Written in 2016

I had not used foam for many years and honestly I was not very sure if I could use it on a day to day basis given my dry and sensitive skin. What I knew was that foam tends to wipe off more oil from the skin which could cause acnes and other conditions.

Anyway, I am up for anything that looks botanical.

The foam has a nice scent.


Thanks to Cherry’s kind ‘teaching’, I could get foam much more easily.

The foam feels smooth. The effects are quite amazing- my skin feels not too dry but absolutely very clean. I would even say my skin becomes smoother after the wash.?

Because I was concerned about the dryness it might bring I decided to try it once every day for a week before reaching my ‘verdict’. Not bad at all especially given it’s now autumn (quite dry in Hong Kong). I would say it’d be perfect for summer days, and it can be used in moderation in autumn. It could be too dry for winter for people with a similar skin type.

Note by Cherry

I need to admit it is not pretty easy to earn the foam. But Sarah!! RUB, RUB, and RUB!! 🙂 But all have the preference, and if you are happy with this, where is the problem? Never!

Anyway, here is a guide to earning foam 🙂

And the climate of Hong Kong.

I know you the audience is from all over the world. I know some of you are from Hong Kong, the other is from Northern Part of Canada. She said it is quite dry in Hong Kong, but it is still over 25C degrees in Oct, and sometimes it is 30C degrees 🙂

It is her Autumn, but it can be different from your Autumn (it is far from Autumn in Japan).

Sarah, Thank you very much!
