It’s been a busy month, this, that, these, and those, you know, the usual year end’s stuffs and all. I am definitely a BB cream girl now, and after trying the Laneigh Multi Cleanser, I am definitely a one-step cleanser girl too! Today, I am reviewing another multi-cleanser – Chamos Acaci Special Fruit Cleanser – Apple. This series comes with 4 fruit types.

The Missy’s Say:
Apple scent, but very subtle.
Creamy (but more ‘fluid’ than usual squeeze out cleanser)
Clean: It really cleanses the skin very well, including make-up. Note that I only tested to remove BB cream.
Other claims (Exfoliating, shrinkage of pore, removal of sebum and wastes): I am using a bunch of other skin care products to exfoliate, and for sebum control, so I can’t say for sure if it boosts the effects, but it’s definitely not breaking me out.
Effect: Although achieving squeaky clean skin, it doesn’t seem to strip off the skin’s natural oil. In fact, I feel a (almost there) film of protectant on the skin.
I definitely DO NOT recommend using a multi-cleanser to remove makeup around eyes and lips. The skin around eyes and lips are a lot more delicate and sensitive, and any multi-cleanser (as gentle as they claim to be) is too harsh. You may end up spending more money on treatment creams and surgical procedures to help restore the tendency of the delicate skin around the areas. So, go get yourself the eye makeup removal!
This one-step fruit cleanser is definitely a Must Have for those who need more sleep time – ME! It is definitely also a great travel cleanser, especially if you wear basic makeup (primer + BB cream + loose powder + eye liner) for vacation, you won’t need heavy-duty cleansing oil/cream to take off the basic makeup.

Psst.. Same distributor for the Papaya Moisture Peel (still loving it!)
The apple cleanser seems to be a great fit for my skin. Undeniably, my skin is maturing, and awkwardly, the acne problem refuses to part with me even though at some point from my teenage days, acne pledged itself to be my best friend, I didn’t realize it meant BFF! Therefore, the apple cleanser seems to be the perfect cleanser that tackles the dry (yes yes, it’s weird, acne troubled skin seems to be the twin of the oily skin, but my skin is losing moisture due to aging) patches, yet combats the possible acne attacks too – to be fair, I only have breakouts when the hormones go crazy during the ‘you-know-what’ cycle, but bad enough to leave marks until the next cycle arrives.
