Whenever a product comes with a spatula, I immediately lose it. Or rather, toss it because I know I won’t use it anyway. In case of the Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream though, I kept it. Not because I need it, you can scoop some out with your fingers just as well as you can with the spatula, no, because it is SO pretty. And, as I learned on their website, because the way it is shaped symbolizes good luck and happiness – I wouldn’t want to toss that!

But other than a special spatula, what else does this makeup remover cream – that I would call a cleansing balm – have to offer.

 

 

What the Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream claims

Comfortable Texture: With 87% plant-based oils, this product is refreshing on your skin without being greasy or causing acne.

Deep Cleansing: Empowered by the three-state conversion technology (cream to oil to lotion), this product quickly emulsifies in water, easily removes makeup, such as base cream and waterproof mascara, and deeply cleanses your pores.

Gentle Nourishment: Enriched with plant extracts from cordyceps, ginseng root, ginkgo leaves and more, it removes your makeup while leaving clear, tender, and smooth skin below.

 

Facts about the Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream

Prize and size

One pot contains 98 ml and is available for 46,95 € on the website here. The packaging has a beautiful gradient blue – to – copper tub with a copper lid. It is vegan.

 

Texture and smell

The second you open the tub, you will notice the floral scent this has – it is rose, but in an elegant and not overwhelming way. It is firm in texture, but easy to get out with the spatula or your fingers and melts into an oil once in contact with the warmth of your skin. The oil isn’t an oily oil though, but feels very comfortable.

How to use the Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream

I used it mainly at night to remove my makeup – using it in the mornings would work as well, but I usually don’t have much to remove then – and while I found it to struggle a little with waterproof mascara, on a regular day it would be enough to leave my skin feeling clean. It emulsifies and rinses completely clean and never irritated my eyes or blurred my vision.

Hover the mouse over an ingredient for short explanation. Read more on INCIDecoder.
It is made up of several oils like Avocado, Argan, Olive, Mango, Matula and Jojoba oil as well as different plant extracts, with Ginger and Ginseng the ones I am best familiar with as well as others that are traditionally used in Chinese medicine. All of them offer antioxidant among other potential benefits.

That paired with emollients and emulsifiers completes the list.

Does it live up to its claims?

Yes.

It has a beautiful texture, emulsifies with ease and had different oils and plant extracts as claimed.

 

How does it compare to…

Geek and Gorgeous Mighty Melt Cleansing Balm

Geek and Gorgeous does my current favorite Cleansing Balm, and while they have some things in common – both rinse completely clean on their own – they also are different in a few ways I wanted to highlight. First of all, Geek and Gorgeous is fragrance-free. If that is a pro or a con depends on your individual skin (More info: Is fragrance in your skincare dangerous?), but Florasis has a better sensory experience there. Second is the price, with Geek and Gorgeous being much more affordable. And third the way they make my skin feel. Neither of them is stripping, but my skin feels a little mor hydrated after using Geek and Gorgeous.

Beauty of Joseon Radiance Cleansing Balm

The Radiance Cleansing Balm from Beauty of Joseon is again without a pleasant scent, but with fermented ingredients that will offer additional skin benefits. It needs a wash cloth for proper removal though, as it doesn’t rinse clean on its own and did have a tendency to blur my eyes when I was wearing contacts.

Would I repurchase and which skin types do I recommend the Florasis Cordyceps Care Makeup Remover Cream to?

I would call it a cleansing balm rather than a cleansing cream (but you know, semantics), and while I enjoy it a lot, especially packaging and texture, I am not sure I would repurchase, as there are many others I enjoy out there. While it certainly isn’t stripping, I didn’t find it to be particularly hydrating either, so I think it is best suited for normal to oily skin types and not for those that are very dry.
