Thank You Farmer

A unique mask to foam cleanser, the Thank You Farmer Rice cleanser is an affordable ($18), inventive answer to acne-prone sensitive skin and a great addition to an oily summer skincare routine. The bottle itself is quite large, making a full mask application conceivable for everyday use, the product itself being a thick but soft substance to be gently spread along the face. To use the product, first spread the product all over the mask (avoiding eyes and mouth) like one would do for a clay mask. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes (I’d personally recommend starting off with 1 minute, as I found daily usage of a 2 minute wait too drying for my skin) and the gently rub off with warm water. Afterwards the skin is glowing without any irritation.

Ingredient Pros and Cons

Ingredients: WATER, KAOLIN, SODIUM COCOYL GLYCINATE, ORYZA SATIVA (RICE) EXTRACT, GLYCERIN, BENTONITE, MYRISTIC ACID, POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE, 1,2-HEXANEDIOL, LAURIC ACID, GLYCOL DISTEARATE, TITANIUM DIOXIDE, CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT, FICUS CARICA (FIG) FRUIT EXTRACT, AVENA SATIVA (OAT) KERNEL EXTRACT, ACMELLA OLERACEA EXTRACT, COIX LACRYMA-JOBI MA-YUEN SEED EXTRACT, COIX LACRYMA-JOBI MA-YUEN SHELL EXTRACT, ULMUS DAVIDIANA ROOT EXTRACT, AMARANTHUS CAUDATUS SEED EXTRACT, CHENOPODIUM QUINOA SEED EXTRACT, OLEA EUROPAEA (OLIVE) FRUIT OIL, COIX LACRYMA-JOBI MA-YUEN SEED WATER, CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) FLOWER OIL, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, MAGNESIUM ALUMINUM SILICATE, PALMITIC ACID, STEARIC ACID, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, DISODIUM EDTA, DECYLENE GLYCOL, TORREYA NUCIFERA SEED OIL, CERAMIDE NP, HYDROXYACETOPHENONE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN

Significant Pros

  • Kaolin (calming, pore clearing)
  • Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract (gentle skin polisher/exfoliant addresses hyper pigmentation)
  • Glycerin (hydrating)
  • Lauric Acid (gentle exfoliant)
  • Centella Asiatica Extract (calming, antioxidant)
  • Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract (hydrating, antioxidant)
  • Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract (calming)

Significant Cons

  • Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Flower oil (skin irritant)
  • Possibly some fungal acne triggers, but considering this mask’s ingredient list is based on polishing and clearing the skin (and the fact that this is a cleanser), I wouldn’t worry about it

The Takeaway

What a wonderful cleanser! These ingredients are bomb – rice is one of my favorite skincare ingredients (as I often suffer form hyper pigmentation) and seeing it as one of the first ingredients in their list is so heartening. Affordable and effective, I would definitely recommend others with similar skin issues/types to give this cleanser a try. Personally, I see myself returning to this product in the future, though I may take a break for more nourishing cleansers come the fall (as well as ones that require less involvement in its application because I’m too lazy lol).
