Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser and Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream Review
I’ve been using Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser and Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream! The lovely people over at BB Cosmetic sent me these Yadah products to try a few months ago. I always warn companies that send review products, that I take my sweet ass time (especially for skin care products), and that there’s always a good chance I may not end up sharing a review at all if I don’t end up using the product(s) enough. And due to my current fussy skin, a lot of products I come across, I don’t end up using after patch testing or initial few tries. I can happily say that these products not only passed my initial skin sensitivity testing, but I ended up finishing both!
I thought I knew most Korean cosmetic brands, but I never heard of Yadah. So I looked up the brand after using these products for couple of weeks, and I LOVE their brand story! Check it out for their full story HERE. Yadah means “wisdom” in Hebrew, and following suit to the brand’s namesake, Yadah wisely minimizes chemical ingredients and chooses selected natural ingredients to produce hypoallergenic skin care and makeup products. Yadah started in Korea with just an online homepage in 2009. Now have stores in Singapore, Taiwan, as well as few other Asian countries, and even an online store in Russia!
So now on to the review of these two particular Yadah products…
Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser is a gentle foam cleaner with a bubble dispensing pump. It has a light citrusy herbal scent. I’ve been coming across this particular scent in a lot of Korean skin care products lately. Somewhat lemony with light Centella asiatica-ish herbal mix scent… Yet, slightly artificial-ish… I can’t put my finger on it, but’s it’s not unpleasant nor super pleasant.
The foam produced by the pump is decent as it can be for this type of a dispenser. I like foam cleansers with dense whip cream like foam which is hard to get from a foam dispensing pump. When I first used Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser as a second cleanser (on water dampened face, after removing most makeup), it was disappointing. It left makeup and dirt residue. Non-acnegenic low pH formula was something my skin really needed, so I kept trying it even after the initial disappointment.
I soon realized I needed at least four or more pumps of the foam and to work the foam into the skin really well to get a decent cleansing. One day, I decided to just remove lip and eye makeup with a makeup remover and try Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser on dry skin. And oh wow! That’s when I fell in LOVE with this product! The fluffy foam melted and lifted makeup and dirt very gently. And washed off with water easily without drying the skin. This cleanser indeed has the ability to take off daily dirt and grime effectively (except for eye makeup). However, out of the pump, and on pre water dampened face, it’s too diluted to be effectively efficient. I ended up using most of this cleanser as my first cleanser on dry skin (adding few drops of water when face is extremely dry), washed off with water, and then followed up with using it again on wet face and voilà! Clean face with no trace of makeup using a low pH gentle cleanser!
Here’s the full ingredients list found on CosDNA. Ingredients were listed on the box in English, but of course I threw out the box without a second thought long ago!
I first thought Yadah Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream was a product to treat acne spots. I don’t think my assumption was far fetched considering the name of this product.
As it was doing nothing for active acne, the “red zero” part of Anti-T RED ZERO Spot Cream started to carry weight on my mind. So I decided to try it on reddish irritated spots on the face, not pimples, but on irritations that I sometimes get due to micro dust/pollution and new skin care products. It definitely soothes those spots! But not acne related red spots! It’s gentle and moisturizing. I often used it as last step in night skin care in place of moisturizer just on the irritated spots. This doesn’t sit too well under makeup.
Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream has the same scent as Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser but slightly stronger. It feels like a gel cream on the skin. I found the applicator expendable. When using the applicator to apply the product, it takes twice as long for the product to absorb into the skin. And the applicator tip ends up spreading the product away from the actual targeted area before it’s absorbed.
Yadah Anti-T Red Zero Spot Cream was a decent product to soothe and calm itchy skin irritations as well as non-acneic red inflammations. It didn’t do magical things as I wished for. But it came in pretty handy since my fussy skin seems to get irritated by so many things lately. Love that it’s gentle, and the key word here is “soothe” not “treat.”
Here’s the ingredients list I cam across on CosDNA. Thank goodness for the lovely beings that take the time to upload ingredient lists on CosDNA!
I also received Yadah Oh My Sun Slush SPF50+ PA+++ and All Day Cushion SPF50 PA+++ that I haven’t gotten around to trying out yet. Now that I know more about Yadah and their dedication to solid R&D for safe products, I’m more excited to try these two products! I’m bringing these to my vacation at the end of March to put them to some real UV testing!
So many products to try but only one face! I’m sure many beauty bloggers and enthusiasts alike have the same dilemma!
