Do you like using foaming cleansers? I love them. I derive great satisfaction from squeezing the nozzle and seeing a big dollop of foam in the palm of my hand icon biggrin Wake Up To A Floral Bouquet With the Melvita Bouquet Floral Clarifying Foam Face Wash Please tell me I’m not alone LOL!

The latest one I’ve been using (and almost finishing up) is this Clarifying Foam from French Organic brand Melvita. This is a face wash formulated for normal-combination skin and contains Narcissus extract to clarify and brighten the skin.

The thing about these foaming cleanser which I discovered after using quite a few, is that some of them can be a little drying on the skin. I don’t know if its the formulation or if the foaming factor but with prolonged use, my skin sometimes feels a bit dry. Not this one however, thank goodness!

The Melvita Clarifying foam is a soap-free formulation and feels like cotton wool on the skin. Actually, no it doesn’t. It feels even lighter than cotton wool! It pumps out a satisfying foam and I use 1 pump quite comfortably. The thick foam is comfortable on my skin and doesn’t dry it out.

I only use this in the mornings because I find the light floral scent calming. In the mornings, when you have to drag yourself out of your warm comfy bed to start a work day, starting it on a calm note is quite important icon razz Wake Up To A Floral Bouquet With the Melvita Bouquet Floral Clarifying Foam Face Wash So since I use this in the morning, I don’t know how well it cleans the skin, except that it feels lovely, its got a nice floral scent and I love foaming cleansers.

For fans of certified organic skincare and animal friendly products, Melvita covers all the bases. They are certified by EcoCert and Bio Cosmetique and do not test on animals.

Big question: Does my skin look any more clarified, brighter or clearer? I can’t tell. Other than face washes that contain salicylic acid (helps fight pimples and reduces pore size) I don’t quite pay much attention to most face wash claims, especially if its for skin brightening. To me, what you put on after that – lotions, serums and moisturizers – is what matters, not your face wash. Its just me of course. No one else has to agree icon smile Wake Up To A Floral Bouquet With the Melvita Bouquet Floral Clarifying Foam Face Wash

The only thing I might say I dislike is the price. Whilst I find most of Melvita’s products on the wallet friendly side, this foaming cleanser, coming in at RM107/125ml is a bit too pricey even for my tastes. I am one of those who saves on my cleansers so I would be more likely to purchase another cleanser than to repurchase this one, no matter that I like it icon sad Wake Up To A Floral Bouquet With the Melvita Bouquet Floral Clarifying Foam Face Wash

In a nutshell

The Melvita Clarifying Foam Cleanser is a lovely soft self foaming cleanser that you pump out from the bottle readily foamed. It is soft and gentle against the skin, has a nice floral scent and feels calming. Skin does not feel dry after washing and even with regular use, does not dry out. The only fly in the ointment is the price which I find a little too hefty to pay for a cleanser. At half that price or so, I might still be willing to pay but not at the present price.

Pros: Light foam, Not drying on the skin, Does not make skin dry out with regular use, Gentle calming floral scent

Cons: Too pricey for a cleanser considering how affordable the rest of the Melvita skincare range is

Here is the list of ingredients for whom it matters.

Have you tried this product or any other product from Melvita? Do you like foaming cleansers as well? I love them, as I have said. If there is one gimmick that will grab my attention, its a foaming cleanser – never mind what else it does LOL! icon razz Wake Up To A Floral Bouquet With the Melvita Bouquet Floral Clarifying Foam Face Wash

Have always wanted to try their products but the high content of Citrus Extracts is a big turn off, especially for sensitive skin :(

Oh boo! Thanks for pointing that out Joy! Those who have sensitive skins may want to pay particular attention to that.

Yep, the rest of the range is relatively affordable by organic skincare standards so I’m quite puzzled by the high price on this cleanser.

I’m pretty much the same. I am happy with drugstore/pharmacy brand cleansers so long as they do the job. So I don’t buy expensive cleansers at all – never understood why I should LOL! :P

Waaaaa… So expensive for waking up a floral smell everyday.. Wouldn’t spend that much for a cleanser… My max is 90 bucks…

My thoughts exactly. I won’t even pay RM90 hehe… I shop for my face washes at the pharmacy most of the time :D

Hello there. I don’t use foaming cleansers anymore due to age concerns! lol :) Have not visited Melvita outlet yet. Btw, Paris, were you aware that Herbacin is now available in drugstores, Malaysia? I was just curious why you had not done a review on their range yet, although so far they’ve only brought in a limited range of body care products.

Haha what’s age got to do with foaming cleansers ? I actually have never heard of Herbacin and haven’t been out recently so haven’t noticed new stuff. what’s the brand known for?

milktea April 19, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Foaming cleansers are starting to feel drying on me! That’s why… ;)
From what I see, Herbacin is like a drugstore version of Weleda. For now, there’s only hand cream and body lotion sold in Malaysia. It’s manufactured in Germany and has pretty cute packaging (cue mini metal tins). I tried the body lotion and hand cream – not bad, somehow reminds me of Nivea cream. :)

Ahh ok I find most foaming cleansers too drying too. I still haven’t had time to check out Herbacin but I will the next time I’m at watsons :)

For someone who buys Sukin Face Cleanser for RM36 buy 1 Free 1…i won’t spend that kinda money regardless of how good you say it is, Paris! :P
As it is, buying the huge bottle of Shu Uemura Oil CLeanser for nearly RM300 is already making me cringe & that last me nearly 2 years!

I’m fond of foam cleanser too, but I think it’s too expensive for a face wash. As a student, I only have the financial means to stick with drugstore brands at the moment. I’m not overly particular with what I use to wash my face anyway. My Cetaphil does the job well enough. :D

To me, there’s no need for an expensive face wash. I use Vichy most of the time and I love it! I will of course now have to find an alternative, that they are no longer sold here. I do hear that Cetaphil is great but I have personally not used it. Still, if it works for you, that’s most important :)

I never try Melvita before. There’s no Melvita outlet available at my place. I don’t have any specific face cleanser that I like. Anything that cleanse my face well & didn’t give me any breakouts, I’ll use it. I prefer the pharmacy brand because it’s cheaper, and I think all cleanser works just the same – to cleanse. But if I see any discount on Diorsnow cleanser, I’ll grab it since I try to use skincare products from the same line for better effects, although I don’t think it would matter if I didn’t use their cleanser. Well, it feels good to use the high-end brand cleanser sometimes, pampering myself once in a while!

You know what Mira, I’ve actually had better luck with cheaper pharmacy brand cleansers than high end. Many Hugh end ones feel too drying to me. But that’s just me of course. I believe in the same thing. A cleansers job is to cleanse so there’s no need for Ann expensive one :)

Hey Paris, I actually found this brand pretty easily here after reading about it here. I think the range looks great! When I finish the 1758 bottles of everything I have, I’ll definitely look into it :)

Haha sounds like that’ll take a while ;) Its great to know that you can easily find it where you are. Try the floral waters. They are great stuff!

I haven’t try any Melvita facial products yet. Everytime I just walked past the shop and keep thinking when am I going to enter and buy their products! Lol.

No Melvita stores near me…

And love love love foaming cleansers too! 4 out of 6 cleansers that I currently use are foaming ones! =D I’m into foaming oil makeup removers too. I had a good one from Etude House but I can’t find it anymore lately, must be out-of-stock or discontinued. T.T I just find them fun and heavenly to use on the face! But they don’t seem to be travel-on-a-plane-friendly. I found that if I packed foaming cleansers, they kind of blew up in my bag. I sort of thought that it had something to do with the air pressure during flights or something. -_-

Foaming oil makeup removers? I got to try them! I think I have one by Kose Softymo :) I haven’t tried bringing foaming cleansers on a plane (although they’ve flown home when I buy them new) but I’ll bear your advice in mind. It is probably to do with the air pressure :)
