Kiehl’s Calendula Foaming Face Wash

Yes you saw the title correctly, a foaming face wash! Don’t
panic, I know I did at first, actually questioning the skincare specialist at
Kiehls thinking I knew better… If you have oily/ combination skin and have
convinced yourself you shouldn’t be using a foaming cleanser, then this post
might just change your mind.

For years now I have been a cream cleanser addict, I
wouldn’t use a balm, gel and I certainly wouldn’t touch a foaming cleanser. A little bored with my routine and still experiencing some little under
the skin blemishes, I decided to try something new.

The Kiehls Calendula Foaming Face Wash has been developed not to strip
skin of it’s natural oils, rather balance the skin so it isn’t as oily. My main concern with using a foaming cleanser was that it would leave my skin feeling tight and dehydrated, but I haven’t experienced that at all. After using this my skin just feels clean, not particularly moisturised but I know that it has been cleansed of all the impurities from the day. After using this I go in with some treatments and then the Ultra Facial Cream, and my skin feels moisturised, supple and less oily!

I have been using this both morning and night, it has a nice fresh scent but it isn’t too over powering. One thing I would say with this is to make sure everything is rinsed away, there have been a couple of occasions where I have gone to put my moisturiser on afterward and realise that I haven’t rinsed my skin enough because I’m so used to using a fannal with a cream cleanser.

Has this balanced my oily skin?

In a nutshell, surprisingly, yes! Not dramatically to the point where I fall into the “normal” category, but my skin isn’t anywhere near as oily as it was! My makeup is lasting longer throughout the day, I’m having less breakouts and spots are at a minimum. It hasn’t changed my mind on foaming cleansers, I do think most of them can strip the skin, but there is something different about this because my skin loves it!

    Foaming cleansers definitely gives me back terrible flashbacks to a Clinique blemish one I used years ago and it was so harsh. But I trust Kiehls to do it a lot more gently. This sounds like a lovely one!The Makeup Directory

    I keep meaning to try Kiehl's but have yet to pick anything up, but this sounds perfect for my skin! I'd be put off by the "foaming" thing too, so I'm glad I've read your review 🙂
