A cleanser that can remove impurities and make-up while leaving your skin refreshed and without irritation can be hard to find. La Prairie offers the Foam Cleanser, a water-activated foaming cleanser. While most foaming cleansers are activated with water, and cleansers can usually be purchased at a local drug store for just around $6, we were interested to find out what sets La Prairie apart from the rest.
The Foam Cleanser by La Prairie claims to deeply cleanse and hydrate the skin. It is supposed to remove all make-up and impurities. The “sumptuous” cleanser as the company describes it, is formulated with plant extracts that are supposed to purify, refresh, and soothe the skin. La Prairie even suggests that a small amount of the Foam Cleanser can be doubled as a shaving cream.
After using hundreds of cleansing foams, you may find that many actually do not remove make-up and leave behind a residue. Other cleansing foams contain so much alcohol that they will dry out your skin, leaving it too tight with absolutely no hydration. La Prairie suggests that their foam will hydrate the skin, remove make-up, and debris without stripping down it’s natural moisture. After applying the formula, the company claims that your skin will feel exhilarated and remarkably clean.
La Prairie recommends applying the Foam Cleanser at least twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. They suggest using a small amount, working into a lather and massaging in gently. After rinsing and patting the face dry, it is recommended to follow up the application with a toner, serum, or moisturizer from the luxury brand’s collection.
The Foam Cleanser doesn’t really boast anything too groundbreaking in comparison to some of the other La Prairie formulas; it is not multi-faceted offering toning, and brightening but, considering it is a luxury product line the price may not be too steep for those looking for a higher-end product with a well-known reputation.
