5 Great Cleansing Foams

I made a video on ‘five great cleansing foams’ and then realised that I had left out a couple of really excellent ones that I only recently discovered! So, as well as the ones described in the video I’d like to introduce the versions by Skin Science and Ole Henriksen. The Skin Science Marine Foaming Enzyme Cleanser doesn’t actually foam that much but does leave skin very smooth – I feel that it has a slight tightening effect too, but I do find that with many facial washes. The Ole Henriksen African Red Tea is one of my new favourites – a whopping great bottle of cleansing foam that’s beautifully scented and really very rich and luxurious. The texture is almost like shaving foam, but it’s not at all drying. I wish that I had put it into the video, but I forgot and then I was ill and couldn’t face re-filming!

Anyway, take a look at the video – I go into a little more detail about what I do and don’t like about foams – and you can see how my new Uniqlo jumper looks, for those who were wondering! All of the products’ shopping links can be found below – as well as details on my Cashmere/Wool sweater!

    The Caudalie cleanser sounds wonderful.

    I tried the Dr Sebagh foaming cleanser last summer and didn’t bother to repurchase – it struggled to remove my make-up and, even though my skin becomes oilier in warmer months, it was quite drying.

    The jumper is such a stunning colour on you!

    I’ve been wondering what the Skin Science cleanser was like after reading about Zonase and Spermine! xx

    Great blog! Tanks for sharing…
    Since you like Bioderma, i think you would like the hydrabio cleansing foam. Very rich and pleasant to use. It leaves the skin very soft and if used daily really helps keeping it hydrated (is it the right word?)
