It says “foaming cleanser” but it’s not crazy foamy, and this is a good thing because then it means it has no harmful ingredients like SLS. I usually cleanse my face off makeup with micellar water first, then cleanser, and with the previous cleanser I used, even after using it there would still be traces of makeup left. Not with this though! My face felt and looked clean but not drying. It didn’t strip away the oils from my face and sebum production throughout the day was even and normal. Love it, will buy again.
