I finally found my perfect type of facial cleanser – a bubble foam cleanser! I have been using normal foam facial washes since my first pimple outbreak, and I realize that such cleansers are usually too harsh on my skin. They rip moisture off my skin and leave it flaky and a tad too dry. And when the skin’s low in moisture, it means pimple outbreaks.
This is probably the reason why I couldn’t maintain a clear face even though I was washing it religiously – up till the day my sister brought a bottle of bubble foam cleanser home!
From then on, I was a convert. I’m on my second bottle now and not planning to switch back to normal foam cleansers.
This is what I’m using currently, The Face Shop’s Herb Day Bubble Foam Cleanser.
Bubble foam cleansers are so much milder on the skin, and cleanse just as well or maybe even better than normal cleansers too. After every wash, my skin feels smooth, really clean and soft. It also feels cool, which means that moisture is retained. As a result, my breakouts have decreased too.
One bottle may last you a shorter time than soap cleansers as you might pump out more than what you need.
The price is also more expensive than common foam cleansers. For eg, Biore’s Marshmallow Whip is $13.90 at Watson’s, then The Face Shop’s Green Leaf Bubble Foam Cleanser is $21.90 from The Face Shop.
