I’m sure most people haven’t heard of Kracie’s Naive Face Wash series! I like their face wash line a lot especially their foaming face wash and makeup removers. For a bit of background information Kracie is one of Japan’s major company’s that specialized in toiletries and cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food. They started out as a cotton trading company in 1887 and have expanded to many different areas since then! Their slogan is Kracie taisetsu na koto <for the important things in life>. I think a majority of their products are in the everyday lives of people in Japan and revolve around the small important things.
Their Naive series is mainly body wash, hand soap and face wash. Naive’s face wash line is surprisingly one of the best face washes I’ve used so far. Their face wash is made with 100% plant based washing ingredients and not only cleans the skin but also works to remove makeup. It has a thick foamy texture and a slight smell of peach (for this particular one).
For the price of this face wash I think it’s a great value and works great. I don’t wear a lot of makeup but it cleans up nicely. (If you’re a heavy makeup user I think you may need to use an oil-based remover prior to using this facewash). As far as the texture, I love it! The thick creamy texture foams well when massaged into the face and along with the smell it’s really relaxing.
This fash was also does a pretty good job at moisturizing. It doesn’t dry out my skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. It’s also really easy to use and works great for me as a gym face wash before heading home and before working out (when I wear makeup). If you’re looking for an alternative face wash to what you can find in the US, I highly recommend this product. Even on Amazon the price isn’t too expensive and it really works wonders for most people. I have already bought this product multiple times and would buy it again!
Where to Purchase
If you live in Japan, you can find this face wash at almost any drug store. If not, then Amazon has the peach version as well as the Aloe and Green Tea versions of the Naive Face Wash. The price differs based on the seller but generally the price is $7~$11. For face wash it’s not bad!
