Sometimes, I just crave a good foam to get my face clean. There is something gratifying about lathering a foaming wash. And these days, there are tons of options that can be foamy without drying. Here are my five favorites:
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser was just awarded the Most Revolutionary Beauty Product of the last 20 years by the CEW UK (Cosmetic Executive Women). I can’t believe that I was just learning about this cult beauty classic. One is bought every 19 seconds around the world. So, naturally I had to try it myself. And now I know why it is so popular. This is a classic gentle cleanser that can remove makeup like a champ. Any skin type can use the two-phase cleanser. Phase one cleanses the skin with a plant-based rich foam, tackling the toughest of makeup. Then you polish your skin with the included pure muslin cloth to dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.
Freeze 24-7 Skin Glacé has the ability to get skin super duper clean but still leave it smooth and supple. The formula contains a proprietary complex of Bio-transformed Rice Bran and Hydrolyzed Soy Protein that purifies and detoxifies but also hydrates. There is no tight or dry feeling but a balance of moisture. And it is calming. Apply this to dry skin and leave on for two minutes as a mask. The formula magically transforms to a foam on your face (so very cool). Love the mask use for a deep cleaning twice a week. Also great for getting off a full face of makeup after a big night. This works great on sensitive skin as well.
Kate Somerville® Gentle Daily Wash has long been a favorite cleanser but it hadn’t been in my rotation for a while. When I visited her Clinic out in Los Angeles (epic experience FYI), my esthetician, Kimberly, directed me to use it. For the past month, my skin has felt more balanced and less irritated. I also love her Cleansing Milk for a gentle, yet hydrating cleanse. But this gel formula has a little bit more power in removing SPF, makeup and urban grit from my face.
Arcona ‘Berry Fruit Bar’ Cleanser is for those of you who just love a bar soap. This also comes in handy when you are travelling. Since it isn’t liquid, you can easily toss it into a carry-on. This cleanser is packed with raspberry and cranberry extracts rich in vitamin C (antioxidants) that cleanse without irritations. It also calms and hydrates skin, without clogging sensitive pores, with white tea and vitamin E. Not to mention is smells amazingly yummy.
Clé de Peau Beauté Gentle Cleansing Foam is an all-time favorite that I have been obsessed with for years. This cleanser is an ultra-rich foam that polishes skin into smooth radiance. The emollient texture and rich moisturizers are incredibly hydrating. It contains Cle de Peau’s Illuminating Complex, a powerful moisture-stabilizing ingredient that creates a radiant complexion. Skin is left supple with no tightness.
