I started using this cute and sweet-smelling cleansing foam at the very beginning of July and had nothing but good words for it. Strangely enough, it was towards the end of the month that I began having adverse effects from using it.
It is my habit to use my facial cleanser to completely strip my eye area of whatever makeup residue coconut oil failed to remove. I had no problem doing this with other facial cleansers, but Happy Tea Time irritated my eyes big time; after washing with it, my eyes would be itching like crazy for about 30 minutes. Any facial cleanser is irritating to the eyes, but this is the worst of them all.
About a week ago, Happy Tea Time started stinging and burning my face. I had to rinse it immediately in the shower instead of leaving it on while I soaped my body; otherwise my face would burn and I would be left with red, irritated spots all over afterwards.
Nothing at all changed in my daily routine, so my only explanation for this phenomenon is that my skin had become sensitized to some component of this facial foam.
I wouldn’t buy this again. However, I’ll let my sister try it instead of throwing it away. I’ve read reviews of Happy Tea Time and only one blogger had the same experience I had, so perhaps this product works just fine in general.
