It’s been said so many times but I will say it again: cleansing is an essential part of our daily skincare routine and should not be taken for granted. For those who wear full makeup almost daily like me, it is very important to properly remove makeup with extra cleansing step such as cleansing oils and eye makeup remover. Cleansing removes impurities, excess oil, dead skin cells and dirt from our skin. I am the type of person who, no matter how tired even after working late until midnight, will still go through proper cleansing steps to make sure that my face is clean before I go to sleep. And for this, I am very particular when it comes to my facial cleansers.
I’ve tried a lot of different cleansers since my teenage days. I started quite early with my beauty routine at the age of 13, I think. At that age, I already follow the basic 3 steps of cleansing, toning and moisturizing. My cleansers range from bar soap, cleansing gel, facial scrub, facial foam and more. As I matured into my 30’s (agh, I’m so old), I’ve been more exploratory and enjoyed trying different brands. Some of the cleansers I loved were Perricone MD Nutritive Cleanser, the Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator and Estee Lauder Nutritious Cleanser.
Since I’m concerned with dark spots and uneven skin tone nowadays, I decided to try L’Occitane’s Immortelle Brightening Cleansing Foam. This is a soap-free, non-drying facial cleanser. The Brightening Cleansing Foam is a very gentle face cleanser, enriched in Immortelle floral water and citrus fruit peel to lighten the complexion.
What L’Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam does:
- Gentle cleansing
- Makes your skin radiant
- Evens the skin tone
- Softens the skin
- Brightens the complexion
I’ve been using it for 1 week and I’m lovin’ it. The promise of gentle cleansing is really true and I’m enjoying the burst of foam on my palm through its pump.
I still use my cleansing oil to remove makeup as my eye makeup consists of waterproof items but my skin feels soft, fresh and ultimately clean after using this cleansing foam. It doesn’t leave a drying sensation and the gentle scent leaves the face with a delicate floral smell.
This is the 2nd L’Occitane product in my daily skincare routine. I love the Immortelle Brightening Moisture Cream and this Cleansing Foam is just as good. Though I haven’t noticed yet if there is brightening result from cleansing (still too early to see), the L’Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam is a definite star cleanser for me and will be an addition to my list of great cleansers!
L’Occitane Immortelle Brightening Cleansing Foam’s tolerance is dermatologically tested. Effectiveness tested over 3 weeks:
• Skin is gently cleansed: 100% of the women
• Complexion is even and radiant: 96% of the women
