Skinceuticals Foaming Cleanser
I've been using this cleanser for the past few months and it has easily become a skincare favorite of mine! I have never used a foaming cleanser before, or even one that says to use on dry skin - I usually do my skincare routines in the shower. When I first started using the Skinceuticals Foaming Cleanser, I was worried that my skin would feel dried out after rinsing it off (a common issue I have with cleansers - which is why I'm so picky about them), but it was actually hydrating for my skin!
The foaming cleanser is gentle and feels soft, kind of weird to say about a foam, but it really does feel soft on your skin. When massaging it onto my face and neck, the foam creates a nice lather and spreads really far - I normally use one pump if I have a bare face, but if I have makeup on I will use two pumps. The cleanser doesn't dry away on its own, so you don't feel rushed to rinse it out. Rinse off is quick and easy because the cleanser is light.
This cleanser leaves my skin feeling hydrated, smooth, glowing, even toned and best of all clean! For being such a lightweight product and so gentle on the skin it does a really great job at cleansing the skin. I don't normally get breakouts, but I am prone to blackheads. With using this cleanser, I have noticed my blackheads are cleared up, my pores are not as big as they used to be and overall my skin just looks healthier. In the past I have named Juice Beauty's Cleansing Milk my #1 cleanser, but after spending the last few months using Skinceuticals Foaming Cleanser, I have reassigned the #1 spot to this Skinceuticals cleanser. It's a bit pricier, but I use half as much as I did with the Juice Beauty cleanser.
For $33.00, the Skinceuticals Foaming Cleanser is about 5 oz of product, I use two pumps per day (one in the morning and one at night), I don't feel the urge to moisturize my skin afterwards and I can actually go all day without feeling dry and tight or even oily.
For $22.00, the Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk and is about 6 oz of product, I use four pumps per day (two in the morning and two at night), I don't feel the urge to moisturize right after using this but within a couple hours my skin feels dry and tight and I need to moisturize.
Overall, I will definitely be repurchasing this cleanser. If you have combination skin (mine is oily in the center and dry around my face), have issues with blackheads, larger pores, and are sensitive to alcohols or find that most cleansers "burn" or "irritate" your skin - I would recommend you try this out.
