Then I Met You Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel

Founded by esthetician and beauty entrepreneur, Charlotte Cho, Then I Met You abides by an attitude of thoughtfulness that transcends self-care. It's inspired by the Korean concept of 'jeong' - a deep feeling of empathy and affection that one can develop for people, places and things - to go deeper, to focus a little extra effort in the right places, and spark real change to your skin. An invaluable sidekick to the industry-adored {Living Cleansing Balm}, the Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel is the ultimate second cleanse; designed to make quick work of oil-based impurities, this gentle cleanser clarifies your pores and counters breakouts all while flooding your skin with hydrating glycerin and sodium hyaluronate—no one likes their skin to feel stripped.

Following in the footsteps of the iconic Living Cleansing Balm is no small feat but the Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel makes it look easy. A purifying second cleanse, this gentle gel effectively lifts water-based impurities (think: sweat and pollution) to promote clear, glowing skin.

Crafted to have a pH of 6, this soothing formula balances clarifying ingredients with a cocktail of hydrating and nourishing extracts so that your skin feels refreshed but never stripped. Leading the conditioning charge is rice ferment filtrate - an impressive ingredient that lends the blend its abundance of enzymes and amino acids to nourish your skin as it gently clears impurities. It's also infused with green tea (an industry-adored antioxidant) to encourage calm, youthful-looking skin, plus liquorice root extract to promote a more even, luminous tone—get ready to glow! As for its blemish-busting capabilities, it's laced with gluconolactone (a naturally occurring poly hydroxy acid that exfoliates without sensitising the skin) and anti-inflammatory tea tree to clear your pores and prevent pesky breakouts.

For the second step of your double cleanse after rinsing off the Living Cleansing Balm, lather a pea-sized amount using water and wet hands. Then massage into your skin to remove water-based impurities. Rinse thoroughly and gently pat dry.

Just Ok

I love Korean skincare & wanted to try this as an alternative to my usual Benton one. Overall the product was OK but not better than my favourite. Value for money is not good as I use alot to work up a lather I know it won't last much longer.

Worked wonders

I love this cleanser, I was getting really bad flare ups of my acne-rosacea but after changing my daily routine to just this and moisturiser, my skin has never looked better.

My favourite cleanser

I have dry and sensitive skin. I've tried a lot of (cult favourite) cleansers and a lot of them leave my skin so tight where nothing else seems to hydrate the skin. But this one is probably the only cleanser that doesn't do that! The scent takes a bit of getting used to and the texture is also hard to explain but my skin feels so hydrated after. Absolute holy grail for me - I'm on my 4th bottle of this now!

Not as nice or effective as the balm

I've been using this for a month and if I'm honest, I'm only using it up now to finish it. I had such high hopes for this range because I love, love the balm and am now on my second tub of it. But this cleanser is, as many people have pointed out, really harsh and does not feel gentle at all on the skin. My skin feels itchy and tight after - the complete opposite to how the balm feels after the first cleanse. Not at all pleasant. The gel is a weird, gloopy texture and if you ever accidentally get it near your lips, which is impossible not to when cleansing, it tastes vile. I'm going to finish and then go back to Fresh soy cleanser instead for a second cleanse/morning cleanse or revert to Pai, which generally saves my skin after products like these have damaged it :(

NOT DRY SKIN FRIENDLY

Do not, I repeat, do NOT buy if you have dry skin or lean towards dry skin because this will dry your skin. If you have normal to oily or oily then this would be amazing cleanser for you! I have dry skin during winter and combination during summer and even during summer this didn’t work for me.

All the good stuff

With a high concentration of sake (rice) extracts, green tea, PHA and licorice, this herbal cleanser is designed to clean pores but leave your skin hydrated. The jelly-like texture encapsulates sodium hylauronate, which is a hydrator so your skin doesn't feel dry or tight afterwards. I designed it to be a perfect compliment to the Living Cleansing Balm (which will nourish your skin). Remember, only a small bead mixed with water is all you need for a nice, soft cleanse. - Charlotte, Founder of Then I Met You

Obsessed

I really enjoy this cleanser! I have combination skin and cleansers for oily skin that leave my skin stripped, while cleansers for normal skin usually leave me feeling too 'oily'. However, this cleanser just leaves my skin feeling clean and happy, but not stripped. I know the scent is something that bothers some people, but I have to admit I enjoyed it from the start :) the texture was something to get used to since I never experienced something like that sticky texture in other cleansers, but again, I enjoy it. Overall, this has become one of my favourite cleansers!

Love it

I have dry Sensative skin due to eczema and this is fabulous for a 2nd or morning cleanse. The rinse is great, it’s non stripping, I’ve suffered no adverse reactions in fact, my skin is so smooth, soft and hydrated afterwards and the scent doesn’t bother me

A little sticky but otherwise a great cleanser

I like to use this cleanser for an AM cleanse whilst the shower is warming up (whilst it’s not too hot). It feels really lovely on the skin, and doesn’t feel like it strips at all. However, it’s a little sticky/gloopy coming out of the tube. Still great though….!
