My Experience with Skinfood Honey Flour Brightening Cleansing Foam:

Skinfood Honey Flour Brightening Cleansing Foam comes in an easy to squeeze, chubby tube packaging with a flip top. The flip top opens with a little pressure and closes with a click preventing any spillage, hence it is travel-friendly. The name of the product is written in the front of the tube and all the other information is provided at the back of the tube. Other than that, the 3 honeycombs beside the word ‘Honey’ on the tube indicate the moist level, and the 3 wheat plants beside the word ‘Wheat’ indicate the cleansing level.

Texture and Fragrance:
This cleansing foam is quite thick and creamy in consistency. There are no chances at all of getting the product out of the tube without squeezing it. It has shining peachy-pearly colour to it. The texture feels a bit gritty because of the presence of exfoliating particles, which I don’t know what they are made of – maybe wheat kernel flour particles. These particles are very tiny and quite gentle on the skin, making it perfect for daily use as a cleanser.

These are not easily visible until you focus on them, but definitely can be felt initially. Later, within a few seconds, the particles get dissolved. When comes in contact with water, it foams up very well. The fragrance is quite fresh. It is mild, subtle and pleasant. Though it is a personal preference, I definitely like the fragrance. The scent lingers around for a few minutes post using the cleansing foam.

For the amount needed to cleanse the face, I use a pea size only. Pea sized amount of the cleansing foam is more than enough for thorough cleansing. And, with this much amount needed, it will last you quite a few months. A little amount lathers up pretty well and feels luxurious. After lathering up, I massage gently over the face and neck for a minute. Then, I rinse it off with normal water.

Post rinsing, the skin is much clearer and softer at the same time. It makes the skin squeaky clean and dries out the skin around the corner of my mouth. Hence, for dry skin, I don’t think this particular variant is good. This cleansing foam helps get rid of every bit of dirt, sebum and impurities effectively. If I use it in the morning, it keeps my oily nose shine-free throughout the day. It deeply cleanses the skin and purifies the pores. The cleansing foam brightens up the skin while cleansing the pores deeply.

Also, if the cleansing foam is used over the broken skin, it stings a lot. I had hormonal breakout last week and the pimple got popped on its own. When I used this cleansing foam, it stung that area. I can feel the stinging sensation throughout the massaging time and until I rinse off the cleansing foam. It is effective in removing the traces of light makeup, but make sure to not use this cleansing foam anywhere near the eye area. It stings the eyes too badly.

If you have problem-free skin then this could be good cleansing foam for your skin. It brightens up the face and deeply cleanses the skin. On the plus side, the fresh scent lingers around for a few minutes after using the cleansing foam. However, it cannot be used on broken skin and sometimes makes skin stretchy.
