Review: Vichy Essentielles Foaming Facial Cleanser

Vichy provided the Essentielles range of products for my review. I will be providing my honest opinions. 

I don't really buy counter brand cleansers as cleansers only remain on my skin for a minute or so and then gets washed off. This means any amount of whitening or antioxidant ingredients would not get absorbed into the skin. With all the dirt and oil, I don't want any ingredients going inwards, just outwards  is enough. So as long as cleansers clean well, don't leave my skin dry or tight, don't make my skin sensitive and are cost effective, they are good enough for me.

I think this Vichy Essentielles Foaming Facial cleanser met the above criteria. The cleanser foams easily and a little goes a long way. The foam is dense and fine, not big and fluffy like Fancl Washing Powder but it is good for a clean wash.

This cleanser contains Rose polyphenols. Rose is known for its soothing properties. My skin did not have any sensitive reactions to this cleanser.  I was happy to see Glycerin as the second ingredient, which explained why my skin was feeling comfortable after the wash and not tight or dry. There is also no SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) or Parabens.

All in all, this is a basic cleanser, which cleans well, does not leave skin feeling dry or tight, and did not cause any sensitivity reaction. It is affordable at $11.90 for 100ml. It is great for people looking for a basic cleanser without a heavy price tag.
