SkinCeuticals Foaming Cleanser - Review

SkinCeuticals is a brand that i'm fairly new to experiencing
but I did take their Foaming Cleanser which helps to lift excess oil
and cleanse deep down to keep pores clean and clear.
I decided to take this on holiday with me in July but due to misplacing my camera HD
card and only finding yesterday I have had to hold off from posting this review for quite some time!

As with most foaming cleansers this comes presented within a pump style bottle 
which dispenses the product nicely but what I enjoy most about the packaging is that
it transparent which allows you to see at a glance when you are running low on cleanser!

In terms of scent there really isn't much to describe, sometimes it has a slightly chemical fragrance
but more often than not it seems to be pretty much fragrance free.
Being a foam based cleanser it has a light, fluffy texture than when applied to the face it melts
with contact and easily removes dirt, make-up and oil but do avoid the eye area!

I tested this out in a much warmer/humid climate than what I am used to 
and as a result of the temperature change I did find my skin to be slightly more oily than usual
so my skin really did test it's excess oil claims!
I have to be truthful and say that this does cleanse really well and over time I do feel it will give
the appearance of smaller pores which is wonderful if you have enlarged pores like myself.
However having said that I did find the cleanser to be a little harsh and instead of dealing with the oil
control aspect it dried out my skin which is not something that happens all that often.
I do enjoy how it cleanses deep down and did not break my skin out
but I couldn't live with the dry skin issues it presented but hey that is just my fickle skin for you!

Have you tried this, what did you experience?

  1. Ohno shame it dried your skin out! I have massive pores too, anything that minimises then i love aha :)

  2. I love the idea of a foamy cleanser that deals with oily skin / pores, but I've just never found one that does without drying my skin out and in turn making it produce more oil. I've avoided foamy cleansers or a while because of this and my skin is much happier with balm / oil cleaners.
