Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser With Tamarind | Review

Tuesday, 10 June 2014

Hello Beauties! I hope your all doing well and enjoyed the heat this weekend, despite the torrential downpour! Recently, my trusty Elemis Fresh Skin cleanser ran out and after scraping every last but out, I decided it needed replacing. However, as my skin has been acting up a bit recently and seems a lot more oily than previously, I decided it was time for a change. A little while ago now, I had a skin consultation at the Clarins counter in Westfield and the Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Taramind was recommended for me to help keep my oil under control, so I decided to give it a go. 

The Gentle Foaming Cleanser contains Tamarind and Micro Pearls to help remove excess oil, dead skin cell and help to reduce the appearance of pores. The cleanser is quite thick at first but when you apply it then massage it in with wet hands, it turns into a lovely foam which leaves your skin feeling super clean. I know foam cleansers aren't everyones thing, but I always feel like they leave my skin with that super clean feeling which I love. 

Living in London, I always feel like my skin and pores get clogged up more than they would if I was living at home in the countryside, so this cleanser is perfect for me as you can really feel it working deep down and when you wash it off with a warm wash cloth, it leaves you skin feeling squeaky clean. I was a little worried that this cleanser would be too much for my sensitive skin at first as it can feel quite stripping, but I've had no problems as long as I use moisturiser after cleansing (which I would always do anyway). 

I really enjoy using this cleanser and I'm so glad that risking changing my cleanser paid off. My skin is a lot less oily now and has been looking quite clear recently which I can only put down to the cleanser as it's the only thing Ive changed. Also, it's just an added bonus that this smells like a spa in a bottle! 

Lots of Love,

    1. It's such a great feeling at the end of a long day, or if I've been out in the city! xx

  2. Clarins products really are excellent! Would love to get one of the treatments done but maybe in a store a bit away from me considering I work with the Clarins girls in my local store.

  3. I've never tried Clarin's but this cleanser seems to be a great one! I use the Bioderma Sebium one and I really like it maybe it will suit your skin too :) xx

    1. Thank you for the recommendation, I'll have to give it a try! xx
