Vichy Essentielles Facial Foaming Cleanser
Hello Beauties! Today I am reviewing one of the products from Vichy Essentielles line. When I started skincare religiously, Vichy was the one that I always wanted to try. As I was not earning so I could not afford it and hence use to settle for cheaper brands. Couple of months later I had developed acne on my face. I went to see a dermatologist and she recommended me VICHY ;). I was so glad she did that. I tried the Normaderm Facewash. It was very “Okay”. It was nothing out of the world. Then I came across Vichy Essentielles line and I liked the concept. I bought the Facial Foaming Cleanser (there was an offer going on). Read on to see how it worked!

My Experience with Vichy Essentielles Facial Foaming Cleanser
Frankly, I did not intend to buy this product. However, when I bought a Vichy sunscreen, store had an offer, that if I purchase a sunscreen I would get a discount on this product. So, I was attracted to the discount and thought would be great to try a new line.
When I bought this foaming cleanser, I never thought I would use it up completely☺. I am so impressed with this cleanser. I use it at night (Days when I apply my makeup).
It has a very girlie packaging, with a rose petal on the tube. It has a nice squeeze tube. The product itself is bit shiny and white in color. Consistency is not too thick or too liquid.
I squeeze out the desired amount and then foam it between my palms and apply it on my face. It cleanses my face really well. Not even a single trace of makeup is left. My skin does not feel dry after using this.
It smells great too. Now as a makeup remover it is a winner for me at least. Toning part I am not sure as I use a different toner after this.
I have sensitive skin and it really works great on my skin. It is for all skin types.
The only thing I would like to mention about this product is that this is a cleanser but more ofor removing makeup because I would not like to use this as a day and night cleanser. I feel I do not need such cleansing in the morning but at night when I want to get rid of dirt and stubborn makeup, this is ideal. It leaves my face with a clean feel and I feel assured that I have got rid of makeup. People with very dry skin might not like it.

Cons of Vichy Essentielles Facial Foaming Cleanser
• Can’t think of any!
Overall, this is an ideal cleanser but again more useful as a makeup remover. I highly recommend it. Just for the people who have extremely dry skin use it once in a day.
