VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face Cleanser
Updated: Aug 9
VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face Cleanser ($65, 150ml) is a multi-tasking, non-foaming facial cleanser with low pH (5.0~6.0; similar to skin's natural pH level) that deeply cleanses the skin and removes makeup, while gently exfoliating the skin. It uses humectants, which draw moisture into the top layer of skin, to create formula particles that are 5-10 times smaller than pores to effectively cleanse the skin with a soft, hydrated finish. VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser also contains 1.5% Polyhydroxy Acids (PHAs), which provide additional humectant and moisturizing benefits to the skin. The All-In-One Cleanser is clinically tested to instantly hydrate the skin, remove make-up, cleanse pores and exfoliate the skin. It is suitable for all skin types and is dermatologist tested, non-irritating and non-sensitizing. Also, it is clean, cruelty free, gluten free and non-GMO.
About the Brand
VENN was started by Brian Oh, a corporate attorney in New York City, who needed a skincare routine that was not only effective, but also safe and efficient. Brian’s own multi-step skincare routine was overwhelming—managing multiple products, including toner, essence, serum, ampoule, moisturizer, cream, and oil—and he was determined to find a solution better tailored to modern lifestyles. The result is VENN. Built on over 20 years of skincare research and innovation by VENN’s co-founder and the skincare industry’s foremost chemist in South Korea, VENN is rooted in science.Through its proprietary R&D center, VENN actively researches and develops new, innovative skincare ingredients and formulas to pioneer a more effective, efficient and safe approach to skincare. Every ingredient is analyzed for quality and VENN products use only clean, safe ingredients and are formulated without fragrance, parabens, silicone, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates, formaldehydes, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, triclosan and triclocarban. All VENN products are clinically tested for safety and efficacy through third-party clinical trials and VENN is cruelty-free, never testing on animals.

It wasn’t until I got serious about my skincare that I learnt that face cleansers don’t have to leave my skin devoid of moisture and dull in order to “properly” remove oil, dirt and makeup. There is another way. You can remove oil, dirt and makeup without stripping the skin of its moisture, in fact, your face wash can also help moisturize your skin! That is where VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser comes in, it is part of a new trend in skincare where face washes include humectants that help keep your face moisturized, while gently removing dirt, excess oil and makeup.
I received the VENN Face cleanser in my July 2020 box from Mintd. The Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser comes in a white bottle with a pump to dispense the cleanser. The cleanser is a white watery liquid that becomes transparent when applied to your dry face. It is so gentle on the skin that I can keep my eyes open while I massage the liquid into my skin, making sure that it gets off stubborn eye makeup. The VENN face cleanser emulsifies into a cloudy white liquid when you wash it off with water.
I really like the VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser and when I use it, I don’t have to use makeup remover, which is one less step in my end of day skincare routine. The VENN face cleanser took a bit of getting used to because I have been using face washes that sud or foam for years, and the Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser does neither. Another thing that took some getting used to is remembering to apply the VENN face cleanser to a dry face, sometimes I would forget and then have to wipe my wet face with towel before applying the cleanser. My only dislike of the VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser is the price, $65 is a lot to spend on a face cleanser, that is the price of serums and retinols, not a face wash. But overall, I recommend VENN Moisture-Balance All-In-One Face cleanser if you are looking for a gentle face cleanser that also removes makeup, doesn’t dry out the skin and leaves your skin feeling moisturized.
