Of the entire Godiva LicoWhite range, the facial wash is the first one I actually emptied… and I’m only posting the review now. Forgive me, it seems like I’ve been spacing out a lot lately. It’s probably because of all household stuff I’ve been doing and the practice driving. Yup, I now have to drive my siblings to and from whereever they need to go as a part of my practice. Anyway, let’s proceed to the quick review on Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash before I start reviewing for tomorrow’s long quiz. ๐Ÿ™‚

Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash has Glabridin from licorice that helps brighten skin as it cleanses. Its low-foaming, soap-free formula moisturizes while it gently and thoroughly cleanses the skin, leaving it with a softer, smoother glow. Effective for all skin types, Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash is safe for continued use for longer-lasting whiter skin.

Like the Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Cream (Read review HERE), the facial wash also comes in a glossy olive green easy-squeeze plastic tube that’s relatively slimmer compared to other facial wash tubes. The photo above is already empty but the glossy plastic prevents the packaging from looking tattered. ๐Ÿ™‚ This facial wash is has the same herbal smell common to this entire LicoWhite range only milder. Inside the packaging is a translucent white fluid that is way thinner in consistency than Pond’s or Ganier facial washes.
I usually prefer foamy facial washes simply because I get to see the foam turn beige – this means my stubborn makeup is being removed. Well, Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash isn’t a tiny bit foamy. It’s as mild as water on the face and it runs like water too. Needless to say, I don’t like using it when I manually wash my face. Not that it doesn’t clean my face or anything; it’s just more of my personal preference. Although surprising enough, it does great when used with my SkinSonic, a cheaper version of Clarisonic MIA, because I don’t have to worry about the foam getting into my eyes.
With Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash, I feel that it doesn’t thoroughly cleanses my face when I only use my hands in washing. It’s very mild on the skin and it’s absolutely not drying at any rate – I can wash my face as many times as I want without the fear of stripping my skin’s natural moisture. I did not experience any adverse skin reaction from the use of Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash but I feel that it isn’t strong enough to prevent breakouts on its own.

It made my skin look hydrated and significantly brighter immediately after use. It feels soft too. The whitening effect maybe temporary but with long term use, it would most probably be permanent. Over the span of almost 2 months, it lighten small and shallow pimple marks on my cheeks but did nothing for the extremely dark ones.

Overall, I would strongly recommend this Godiva LicoWhite Whitening Facial Wash to those with dry and sensitive skin simply because it’s super mild and would unlikely irritate the skin. It shows commendable results too but like any other products out there, it does take some time. Be patient. ๐Ÿ™‚
