My Experience with La Prairie Foam Cleanser:
It comes packaged in a good quality plastic tube, with a screw on cap. The tube comes packed in a silver coloured cardboard box. It has a travel friendly packaging.
I was glued to one face wash, until I started reviewing products for IMBB and have started buying and experimenting new products for review. La prairie foam cleanser for face is soft textured and feels luxurious to use and really pampers my face skin. My first tube is a gift from a friend, who insisted that this would last forever and I would not have to buy again. Genuinely this tube lasted me for almost a year, even after using it twice a day sometimes. A little goes a long way.
I squeeze a small quantity and using my palms apply it all over my wet face, even near the eyes. This foaming cleanser is water activated and the pink coloured mousse consistency is soft and smooth textured. It gives a soothing and calming effect. Face feels thoroughly cleansed, smooth, bright, radiant, nourished and hydrated. It neither results in any irritation, dry skin or breakout; nor does it make my skin oily or sticky. This foaming wash suits and soothes my sensitive skin.
However as far as the claim of removing makeup is concerned, it does not help in removing heavy duty makeup like long lasting eyeliners, lipsticks and smoky or shimmer based eye makeup. Removing makeup with a makeup remover is necessary before using this foam cleanser. I happened to carry this luxurious face wash with me on one of my recent travels and noticed it tends to melt and become runny in extremely hot weather, when room temperature exceeds 42 degrees or so. I had to refrigerate, to bring it back to normal. It is indeed travel friendly, did not have any issues whilst travelling with regards to same, even though the tube was open and half used.I had retained the cardboard box and carried the tube in the same box.
After regularly using, in fact since day one my face skin felt more smoother, firmer, younger looking and radiant. It can be used throughout the year, be it hot or cold weather; at least in my case I had no issues. Recently I had a spur of breakouts and pimples on my face due to some allergy and La Prairie Foam Cleanser did not aggravate or irritate my pimples or harm them in any way, but kept the skin surface thoroughly cleansed, calm, smooth and gave a soothing effect. I would have bought this product forever, if price was not a constraint. However being a high end brand, it will be highly priced!
