So I was very excited when I saw Nivea's new offerings: not one, but two cleansing mousses! Finally! The Daily Essentials Soothing Cleansing Mousse (pink) is recommended for dry and sensitive skin and contains almond oil, while the Refreshing Cleansing Mousse (blue) is formulated for combination and oily skin with extra vitamin E. Both contain Nivea's Hydra IQ formula, the details of which deserves a post in itself and involves Nobel Prize-winning science - essentially, it hydrates skin from both the surface and within, mimicking the skin's natural water channels.
When using this apply water to your face first as this doesn't really foam up any more than what it comes out like from the bottle. If you apply on dry skin the foam disappears very fast and you will not manage to make it foam up again. I'm pretty used to cleansers like this - it often means that there's not as much soap in them, which make them gentle. Little foam, however, doesn't mean that it doesn't clean properly - the amount of blackheads I get has reduced since using this cleanser (used for about 1,5 months now). This may be contributed to that regular cleansers often leave a residue on the skin (although you may not feel it), which toners are usually used to remove. As my skin is very sensitive, I can't use a toner because rubbing my face with a cotton pad easily makes it irritated.
Boy does this stuff work! It doesn't dry out my already dry skin, it cleans EXTREMELY well, and my face doesn't break out even though it's super sensitive.
This product is even better than Proactiv for my skin.
