Honest Review: Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream Cleanser

Time to tell the people what they want to know: all hype aside – how is the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream Cleanser?

Apart from being a mouthful to say, I’m here to give an honest review after testing this cleanser for about a month now. First of all, I’d like to preface this review by admitting that I am a big fan of this brand. I use all of their face masks and was introduced to this product by first falling in love with the Water Drench Cloud Cream. So when I saw that they made a cleanser under the same name, I had to give it a shot.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream Cleanser, $28

When trying out a product for the first time, I like to use it exactly the way it’s directed in the directions on the packaging. That way, I can avoid basing an opinion on it without using it correctly – duh. It directs you to squeeze a small amount into your hand, add water & rub hands together. This actually isn’t the way I usually use my cleansers, so I’m glad I checked the directions prior. My first initial opinion was that I loved the consistency of this cleanser. It truly felt like marshmallow fluff in my hands.

The next reaction I had was one of the negative things I have to say about this product – the smell. I think it’s safe to say that we all like our cleansers to not be fragrant necessarily, but to have a pleasing smell. Since this product has marshmallow root extract in it, I was expecting a sweet & subtle smell. This cleanser had more of a medicinal smell. Since Peter Thomas Roth is a “clinical skin care” brand, this might be expected, but I have not experienced this smell with any of their other products before. Not a huge deal breaker for me, since the smell wasn’t horrible, but still noted.

With that being said, this product works. It directs you to focus on the parts of your skin which have makeup and it claims to melt that makeup away. After using it for a month, I can say that this cleanser makes your makeup disappear! With past cleansers, I always go back over my skin with a cotton pad & some micellar water to make sure I get all the makeup off, and the pad usually comes back dirty. With this product, I am always shocked to swipe my face post-wash and get a clean cotton pad back. This cleanser breaks down high quality mascaras, foundations and eye shadows. I am still always impressed every time I use it.

Cleanser removed my mascara, BB Cream, concealer & powder.

Since a cleansers job is to obviously clean the face, I confidently can say that my skin feels the cleanest after using this product. I believe it’s used best in the morning before applying makeup. It makes your face the perfect smooth & clean canvas which makes for the best makeup & skin all day. It claims to “froth” up, which I wouldn’t necessarily say is the case, but it does act as a great creamy & milky cleanser.

To sum it all up, I will continue to use this product when I’m in the need to get a deep cleanse & makeup removal. I would say that the scent of the product is more medicinal than pleasing, so if that is a deal breaker to you, there are so many other amazing cleansers out there. If not, pick up a travel size of this at Ulta or Sephora and give it a shot before committing!

Happy cleansing!

    Good to know. I may head to Ulta to buy some. I have the same experience as you with facial cleansers. They don’t remove all of the make up. Thanks for the info 😊
