L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser Review

Hello Pretty Ladies,

Today, I am going to review L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser, another product of the “Youth Code” series and one of the four recommended daily skin care regimen as per L’Oreal skin care experts.

L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser Review


Its 7.99 $ for 8.0 fl oz, but I bought it for $ 6.97 from Wal-Mart.

Earlier I used Cetaphil which is really mild and good for cleansing the face before doing facials at home, but going for homemade face washes and masks was only possible till I was alone 😛 After having a baby, its really a tough task to make scrub or mask and then apply it!! I am not lucky enough to make scrub and then apply it without getting distracted. Well, baby is the first priority, but I do feel the need to get pampered and take good care of myself too.  Being a homemaker, these little efforts really boost up the confidence and let’s me feel that I have the charm and that I am special 🙂 Anyway, I am very talkative, all of you may have realized while reading my posts 😛 Let’s get back to the L’Oreal Cleanser before I blab about myself again 😉 😀

Cleanser 1

I never had any big issue with L’Oreal Youth Code products so far, so when it came about choosing a face cleanser, I again opted for a product from this range.  Now, please read further to know my experience with this cleanser.

Let’s see their recommended regimen first:

Step 1: Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser.
Step 2: Youth Code Serum Intense.
Step 3: Youth Code Eye Cream.
Step 4: AM- Youth Code Day Lotion SPF 30.

PM- Youth Code Day/Night Cream

I use Youth Code cleanser and then directly apply Youth Code Day/Night Cream during daytime and during night.  I usually apply homemade serum (honey+ rose water+ lemon juice+vitamin E) and then apply the cream. I don’t need Serum Intense and Eye Cream thankfully.


Cleanser 2

Product Description:

  • With L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser, you can have younger looking skin every time you cleanse.
  • This foaming gel cleanser gently exfoliates and removes impurities down to every last trace of eye makeup without overdrying.
  • Skin will become luminous, smooth and younger looking with continued use.

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser:

I usually look for attractive packaging 😛 but now I have understood that outer appearance of products has nothing to do with effectiveness of the product inside!  When you pump up the bottle, a little thick transparent liquid oozes out, which is sticky, but the product claims it to be silky. When I applied it on my face, I observed a little foam formation and also felt a tingling sensation. I needed more and more splashes of water to remove it from my face.  Even after rinsing several times with water, it feels as if I still have traces of cleanser on my skin, may be that’s the “silky effect.” 😀

Cleanser 4

No doubt my face was clean and a little exfoliated. I used it twice as recommended, but it was a wrong decision as washing the face twice with the cleanser made my skin so rough.  My face was so dry after the second wash that I forgot I come under the oily skin type and I have to apply moisturizer.  Since then, I am using it while I shower, but still, I avoid it using twice daily as its very effective in just one wash and I fear of getting unwanted wrinkles because of dryness if I use it too frequently.  I have to apply moisturizer after every wash.  One best thing about this product is that I haven’t noticed any breakouts yet and it really makes my skin glowy, smooth, and youthful as I can see myself glowing day by day.  Even my hubby asks me what’s the secret behind my youthful glow, I just wink at him and reply that a secret is a secret 😀

Let’s quickly sum up the pros and cons of this cleanser:

Pros of L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser:

  • It keeps the face shine free for longer.
  • It gives a glow from the very first day of using it.
  • Good for all skin types but best for oily and acne-prone skin.
  • Prevents acne and break outs.
  • It also provides anti-ageing benefits.
  • Cheaper compared to other products with similar claims.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Foaming Gel Cleanser:

  • Unattractive packaging.
  • May or may not suit dry skin and sensitive skin.
  • May not be available in India yet.

I may conclude that oily skin types like me can use it just once daily for glowing and younger looking skin but dry and sensitive skin beauties, please try a sample first and then go for it!  Personally, I am satisfied with my cleanser.  Apart from the cons, this Youth Code is an essential part of my daily skin care regime and I am sure I won’t be able to get a better cleanser than this.  I would recommend it definitely for oily and acne-prone skin.
