When I first received the Amarte Daily Wonder Cleansing Foam ($40) I suspected that after using it a few times it would be too drying for my skin. To my surprise, it wasn’t. A small pea size is enough to cleanse your whole face. The scent is a refreshing cucumber fragrance, and this cleanser really rocks when used with my Clarisonic.
I have been using this cleanser for about four or five weeks and I still have more than half a bottle left. My skin is naturally dry, but I’d say this is a great cleanser for all skin types. I did not suffer from any dryness due to this cleanser – none at all – but I did follow up with E’shee KI Serum ($189 in the shop) and GloTherapeutics Cyto-luxe Face cream ($175) after each use.
As for the ingredients, there are a number of wonderful botanicals to help calm the skin as well as a few anti-inflammatories, such as green tea, lavender, cucumber juice, allantoin, and chamomile. A few things I am not fond of are phenoxyethanol, and lauric acid.
I will definitely finish the bottle. I did have a friend tell me the other day that my skin appears to be a little flaky, so maybe there’s a little too much exfoliation going on here; I’ll keep an eye on it. Overall, it was a great experience and definitely would be good for oily or acne-prone skin.
I would say $40 for an effective facial cleanser that lasts for a good three months is well worth it.
