Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward Cleanser: The Antioxidant Powerhouse

If you’ve been looking for an affordable cleanser that gets all the makeup and dirt off but still maintains your skin’s natural oils? You’ve come to the right place.

Formula 10.0.6 recently introduced their products into the shelves of Target and Ulta at a crazy affordable price range. They carry everything from cleansers to moisturizers that work just as well, if not better than, fan-fave products with significantly higher price points. I personally have used about 4 of their products and had nothing short of a positive experience with all of them.

Formula 10.0.6’s Claims:

Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward daily cleanser with passionfruit and green tea foams to remove impurities and cleanse skin. This fresh, gel cleanser washes away oil and impurities for a sparkling, clear complexion. Green Tea and chamomile pacify while passionfruit balances skin. Your skin will feel clean and healthy every day with Formula 10.0.6 Best Face Forward!


Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, C12-13 Alkyl Lactate, Sodium Chloride, Glycerin, Fragrance, Citric Acid, Sucrose, Disodium EDTA, Passiflora Incarnata Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Red 33, Blue 1. R06-14

My experience:

After I tried a sample of the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, I have been on the search for a similar gel cleanser that takes the day off without any excess drying. The Best Face Forward cleanser is it. It applies as a gel and turns into a super light foam as it comes in contact with water.

Passionfruit and green tea work as antioxidants that help with balancing the skin. Green tea also provides anti-aging, soothing, and antibacterial properties. Chamomile flower extract works along with the green tea to soothe your skin.

It’s also formulated with barrier building humectants like glycerin and emollients like sucrose to really leave your skin hydrated and smooth. This might be disappointing to some, but, your skin isn’t supposed to feel squeaky clean post-cleanse. If it does, this means your acid mantle and moisture barrier is no more. It does everything a cleanser should do, without stripping your skin.

After cleansing with this and following up with their So Totally Clean toner with BHA, I found that my cotton pad was only an off-white instead of being filled with makeup still. I only had to use two cotton pads to reach a completely clean pad. Win! I absolutely stan for any product that reduces the time spent on each step in my routine.

Formula 10.0.6 should remove the word “foaming” because this product doesn’t quite foam as expected. It’s a gel consistency and it stays like that for the majority of the time.

It does contain sulfates which should result in foaming, but I didn’t experience much foaming at all. Also, sulfates have quite a bad reputation in the beauty industry, but, there is no substantial evidence that they are linked to cancer. So this shouldn’t be your concern. What they absolutely ARE linked to is irritation because they are sensitizing. I don’t have sensitive skin, so I can’t fully guarantee that this cleanser will not irritate your skin, but, to mitigate any irritation, the Best Face Forward Cleanser is packed with skin-loving ingredients like green tea and chamomile flower extract, which both help to calm your skin down.

Expect nothing but a glow using this phenomenal cleanser.

    • Hi, Nim! I know sodium laureth sulfate is a concern for some, but it's really sodium laurYL sulfate that's the issue. Sodium laureth is not as harsh, but if you have sensitive skin it may irritate it, though none of my clients with sensitive skin have experienced irritation with this product.
