Hello lovely ladies,
Today I am going to review a product which changed the definition of a foam cleanser to me. During a trip to Pune, I was running low on my face wash (a foaming cleanser prescribed by my derma) and found it to be a perfect excuse to explore Sephora. I was actually bored of my medicinal cleanser and was determined to find something good and attractive. That was how I got this beautiful cleanser. Read on to know why it is such a wonderful product.
Price: 2000/- for 125 ml
Shelf Life: 3 years
This dual-action cleanser purifies skin for a look that’s clean, fresh and radiant. Use it two ways: Morning and night, it works as a gentle foaming cleanser. At night, once a week (or as needed), let it work for 2 minutes as a deep purifying mask.

My Experience Estée Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-In-1 Foam Cleanser:
Packaging: The cleanser comes in a red and gold tube which gives it a classy elegant look. I love the tube but with my recent love for pump applicators, I have to deduct a point for the cap. A flip cap would have also been better but it comes with a screw cap which becomes slippery and messy at times when excess product is drawn out. The tube is sturdy and can be packed for travel if space is not a constraint.
I always thought foam cleansers over strip the oils of skin and so are the reason for a squeaky clean face. With a face like an oil factory, my obvious choice of cleanser is a foam-based one. All the foam cleansers which I have used until now gave my skin a stretchy feeling if I did not follow up with a moisturiser. A normal cleanser would not give my oily face a fresh clean wash. So I stuck to the foam ones. I was stunned to find that this cleanser did not work like your general foam face wash. The product is a pearl white colour cream with micromini granules. It has a delicious fruit smell which screams luxury. A very small amount is required for each use.
The formula is very creamy. It goes butter smooth on skin and then the microgranules slough off the dead skin on the face leaving behind clean (not the squeaky clean), fresh, radiant and smooth skin. There is not even the slightest stretchy feeling around the mouth and nose which I usually have if moisturiser is not applied. I also use it as a face mask when my face looks dull and tired. I just massage some cream onto dry skin and wait for some 10 minutes and then wash off. The result is a radiant face that feels soooo soft to touch.
I also tried it as a makeup cleanser. It removes most of the makeup but not all in one wash. To remove makeup completely, two washes followed by a toner is mandatory to have clean pores. The hard to pronounce ingredient list scares me but I am in love with this product and it has been my HG ever since we met.
Pros of Estée Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-In-1 Foam Cleanser:
• Two benefits in one product.
• Removes dullness from face instantly imparting a radiant glow.
• Delicious smell.
• Does not strip skin of its natural oils.
• Gives smooth and soft skin.
Cons of Estée Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-In-1 Foam Cleanser:
• Screw cap is not very convenient.
• Loads of chemicals.
IMBB Rating: 4/5 (-1 for all the chemicals)
Will I Repurchase/Recommend Estée Lauder Nutritious Radiant Vitality 2-In-1 Foam Cleanser?
A definite repurchase. I love the cleanser sooo much that I am turning a blind eye to its ingredient list. Hope they are all good and do no harm. I recommend it to all oily-skin girls who will definitely love the nondrying soft experience. It may also work for dry/normal skin because of the creamy texture. Try and let me know.
