One of the most trending beauty products recently is rice water cleansers. Rice, being the staple food of most Asians, has numerous skin and hair benefits. My grandmother’s skin and hair care routine is incomplete without rice water. So, when an Indian brand named Olaiva introduced their rice water cleansing foam, I was so excited to try it.
Why Rice Water?
Rice water is rich in vitamins C, E and also other minerals. It revitalises the skin, improves skin tone and moisturizes the skin. It has anti-ageing properties which avoid wrinkles and tighten the skin. Rice water is said to heal acne and also reduces the pore size. The starch present in rice water helps to soothe the skin and prevent itchiness.
Olaiva rice water cleansing foam is packed in a sturdy plastic bottle with pump packaging. The pump has a cap, which avoids spilling of product. It is travel friendly and spill proof. All the product details are mentioned on the packaging.
A real mild foaming cleanser that contains fermented rice water & 5 natural extracts to soothe, brighten and hydrate skin at one go. The cleanser leaves your skin moisturized, vitalized and refreshed while effectively cleansing deep skin impurities.

The cleanser is in a foam form and I take one to two pumps, massage it and apply on my face. It doesn’t lather much but cleanses the face effectively. It is a mild cleanser and didn’t make my skin dry or stretchy, instead made it soft and supple. It has a mild cooling effect and soothes breakouts or skin irritations. It made my skin bright and has healed my dry patches. It gives a healthy glow to the skin which I like so much. As it is a natural product, it doesn’t lather much and one may need more product – which is the only downside. Other than that, this is an effective product which I’d recommend it to you all.
