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 😀 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 😛 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 🙂
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 🙁
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! 😛
