Cleansing foams are good for removing dirt and impurities from the skin however, not all products that are being endorsed by celebrities deliver on their promises. Ideally, a good cleansing foam will not only remove dirt and impurities, but it will help to refine the pores, nourish the skin, restore balance, and block out damaging stressors that may speed up the signs of aging. If a cleansing foam can brighten the skin, texturize it, help maintain moisture and remove make-up with little irritation, it is certainly doing its job. The Cleansing Foam by La Mer, is an available option that claims to purify and energize the skin.
La Mer, in their product literature says that The Cleansing Foam will help you achieve a brighter complexion. The product uses the brands’s signature ingredient known as The Miracle Broth™. The ingredients in the “broth”, although not immediately evident, are are supposedly immersed in moisture and energy to increase their concentration. The company includes sea algae fibers and white pearls in The Cleansing Foam. The foam is supposed to work on both oily and dry skin.
While some users have had success with The Cleansing Foam, others have reported minor issues with the smell and the fact that it does not provide exfoliating action. Apparently, a small portion of the Cleansing Foam will go away which may allow you to hold on to it for a longer time. This may be a positive when considering the simple formula’s current price point.
La Mer recommends applying the foam at least twice a day in a gentle, circular motion, working the foam up into a lather and then rinsing with warm water. This product does not contain any targeted anti-aging treatment so it would be beneficial to follow up with a nutrient-rich moisturizer and special serum to target troubled areas.
