Bamboo is traditionally used for a host of remedies involving skin in Asian cultures. In Ayurveda, Bamboo infusions are used to create eye washes and to treat inflammation. Bamboo extracts also contain mildly antibacteral, astringent effects, which help to balance oil production.
Bamboo's skin-loving superpowers stem from the high percentage of natural silica which it contains. Silica may help increase collagen and elastin synthesis through increasing tissue levels of hydroxyproline, and to improve firmness and strength of connective tissue, have anti-aging effect, fade scars and age spots and give your skin a luminous glow.
Additionally, this is the foamiest and creamiest of all the Sabbatical Beauty cleansers, despite it having the skin-identical low pH of 5.5.
Ingredient Deep Dive:
🎍Two types of fermented Bamboo (fermented bamboo extract and bamboo ferment filtrate). Fermentation increases the bioavailibility of bamboo compounds, helping your skin to better use it.
🎍Aloe Vera is widely known as one of the most soothing and healing ingredients to treat inflamed skin and to give your skin a strong moisture boost.
🎍Colloidal Oats are a traditional remedy to treat inflammatory conditions like eczema and psoriasis, and can help soothe irritated, reddened skin.
🎍Hydrolyzed Goat Milk is a milk protein that is used to improve your skin barrier function, helping to keep your skin plump and hydrated
🎍Quarternized Rice is a rice protein that helps your skin to form a film to improve moisture levels and to prevent water loss, thus giving you bouncy, youthful skin.

I took one point off because my travel-sized bottle didn't come with instructions (so I didn't know to shake it) and it didn't foam. I still got a very nice cleanse from it, and my skin still felt and looked great after using it. I would consider purchasing again.

The Bamboo Foaming Cleanser is my favorite cleanser. It smells really nice, and it's gentle on my skin. It gets my skin clean and ready for serums. I have been using it for years -- there are other cleansers I like, but this is my favorite and I keep coming back to it.
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to write this thoughtful review. We're so happy to hear that you're loving the Bamboo Cleanser as much as we do! Thank you for being part of the Sabbatical Beauty Family! - SB Team
I bought a travel size of this along with the rose foaming cleanser to use as a second cleanse. Couldn't choose one over the other so I got a full size of each and now I just alternate the two. This is a very soothing cleanser my skin feels soft and hydrated after I use this. It really helps with the redness on my cheeks. I like the smell it reminds me of the woods after it rains. You only need a dime size amount of this cleanser (same goes for the rose foaming cleanser) full size should last a while.
I only started my skin care, face care journey a couple of months ago: I was thinking, "I just turned , it's a global pandemic and I am stuck in my house, and I need to start taking better care of myself." Why not treat myself to a birthday and self care gift? But I wanted to start simple; I don't like a lot of steps. So a friend recommended a set of four products as a starter kit: Bamboo Foaming Cleanser was one of them. It is light, frothy, a little floral, and leaves my face feeling clean, zippy, and fresh. I haven't tried a range of cleansers (and hope to do so), but I am very pleased with SB's Bamboo Foaming Cleanser!
I have combination skin that is both sensitive and acne prone. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, not dried out or irritated. I feel like my skin has been glowing since I switched to this cleanser, and my family has commented on how great my skin looks.
