Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser & Gentle Foaming Cleanser Review

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser & Gentle Foaming Cleanser Review


Hey There! Happy Monday. I’ve been testing these two facial cleansers from Clarins which are almost rated 5 stars in Sephora. These are the Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser and the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser. It all started when I received a sample of the Gentle Foaming Cleanser and fell in love with both the scent and the formula immediately. I then decided that I should get the regular size, and while checking out other products from Clarins, I also fell in love with the Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, which basically has the same scent as the Gentle Foaming one, but it has microbeads for exfoliation and orange extracts.

I’ve never tried any Clarins product before, and I’m so surprised by how much I enjoyed their cleansers. They smell fresh and spa-like and they foam very well. The two cleansers I purchased are really great for oil-control while being gentle and exfoliating.



Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser Review


  • Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser – This cleanser was love at first wash. Ha!. I knew I was gonna be crushing on this particular cleanser right from the moment I applied it to my face. Just a pea size and this cleanser foams really well with a fresh cotton scent. Like freshly-cleaned laundry. The scent is strong, but it’s an enjoyable scent. This gentle cleanser takes away excess oil completely, and my face felt thoroughly cleaned and renewed. It has cottonseed for soft smooth skin and Katafray Bark Extract to prevent moisture loss. This is probably one of the best FOAMING facial cleanser I’ve ever tried, and it’s so great to pair with my Foreo.

  • Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser – Something about this cleanser that signals a fresh spa-like experience. Which is definitely true, this cleanser is great at gently exfoliating dead skin cells while working deep down into the pores with its silica microbeads and moringa seed extract. But what I love most about this cleanser is that even though this has a very similar scent to the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser above, this one has an additional orange scent to it, which is very refreshing and it works really well to take away excess oil without using any facial cleansing device.


Verdict: I think I will be repurchasing these two facial cleansers from Clarins or might as well replace my favorite cleansers with these because as what I’ve said before, I love how it cleanses my face and controls the oil. I feel like the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser leaves my skin smooth and oil-free without being harsh, while the Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Facial Cleanser is for when you need to exfoliate deep down to the pores while still remaining gentle and refreshed afterwards. On top of that, they’re both affordable and comes in a decent size for a cleanser.

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser Review

boscia detoxifying black cleanser review


Hey There! So I just ran out of my usual face cleanser (Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit), so it’s the perfect time to venture into other facial cleansers that might suit my fancy. A month ago, I was able to try a sample size of Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser and I was amazed. Now, I finally bought it in regular size, and I couldn’t be any happier.

The color of this Detoxifying Black Cleanser from Boscia may look strange or striking to you, because it’s made of activated charcoal, but it feels good, not only on the face, but also on the hand while applying the product, since it gets warm upon contact with the skin. In addition to that, this cleanser has Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C.

As a detoxifying cleanser, I like how it’s meant to remove impurities and takes out excess oil. Great for my skin concern, plus the added benefits of pore size reduction and complexion brightening. The smell is not bad either. It’s kinda herbal-like, which smells soothing to the senses.

While it does cover your face with dark, muddy, charcoal, gel consistency, don’t get alarmed, this is like Tarte Frxxxtion Stick, which fades away after rinsing your face. The only thing I may not like about Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser is that it doesn’t foam very well. But it does leave my skin feeling clean and refreshed. I also noticed less oiliness and so far, less breakouts. 

This cleanser is definitely going to be in my holy grail list, not only because of its uniqueness but also because of its calming and helpful benefits, specially for someone with oily skin or sensitive skin.
