When it comes to cleansing your face, the choices can seem endless. Various products are available to cleanse your skin, from cleansing oils to micellar waters. However, two of the most popular cleansers are foaming and cream cleansers. In this blog, we’ll explore the difference between these two and help you determine which is best for your skin.
Foaming cleansers are a popular choice for many people. They give a satisfying lather and leave your skin feeling squeaky clean. Let’s check the benefits of using foaming cleansers and why they may be the perfect addition to your skincare routine.
- Effective at removing impurities
Mayerling believes in radiant and glowing skin. It is made possible by our Foaming Cleanser 150ml, formulated for all skin types. It is especially effective on oily skin as it works quickly and softly to dissolve impurities. It also removes all traces of makeup, grease, and dirt and effectively prevents clogged pores.
- Gentle on the skin
While foaming cleansers effectively remove impurities from the skin, they are also gentle. Unlike other types of cleansers, it does not typically contain harsh ingredients that can strip the skin of its natural oils. It is especially beneficial for people with sensitive or dry skin and those suffering from eczema or rosacea. Mayerling’s Foaming cleanser is derived naturally from coconut oil. This natural foaming agent emulsifies oil and water without drying the skin’s surface and leaving it feeling fresh and clean.
This cleanser can also be a good option for people who want to avoid using oil-based cleansers. While oil-based cleansers can effectively remove makeup and other impurities, they can also be heavy and leave a residue on the skin. On the other hand, foaming cleansers are typically lightweight and rinse away quickly, so there is no need to worry about residue.
- Suitable for Daily Use
This cleanser is also suitable for daily use, making them a great addition to your skincare routine. Since they are gentle on the skin, foaming cleansers can be used every day without causing irritation or dryness. It can be particularly beneficial for people who wear makeup or live in areas with high pollution. It is because daily cleansing can help to remove impurities from the skin and prevent breakouts. Our Foaming Cleanser is formulated with tea tree oil, an excellent active ingredient that works as an antiseptic. It can aid in the reduction of sebum & controlling inflammation and bacteria.
- Easy to use
Another benefit of foaming cleansers is that they are easy to use. Simply wet your face with warm water, apply this to your skin, and massage in a circular motion. Rinse away the cleanser with warm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel. This will work perfectly if your life involves excessive travelling or a heavy office day.
Foaming cleansers are also available in various formats, including pumps, tubes, and bottles. This makes finding a product that meets your needs and preferences easy.
Skin Cleansing Cream
Cream cleansers, on the other hand, are thicker and creamier in texture. They are typically used without water and are designed to be wiped off with a soft cloth or cotton pad. They are also generally free of harsh surfactants that can strip the skin of natural oils. Cream cleansers have been a popular choice among skincare enthusiasts for a long time, and for a good reason. Some of those reasons include the following:
- Gentle Cleansing
Like our foaming cleanser, our cleansing cream is formulated to be gentle. Mayerling cleansing cream is ideal for sensitive, dry, and normal skin types. This lightweight, soft, milky formulation melts away makeup, removing all surface impurities. Also, it clarifies the skin for a radiant look without leaving a dry or tight feeling.
- Non-drying and Non-irritating
Cream cleansers are also known for their hydrating properties. Formulated with a plant-based surfactant to remove all water-soluble dirt and grime without drying the skin. It also comes with rice extract that acts as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory to soften and brighten your skin.
- Provides skin nourishment
In addition to providing hydration, cream cleansers also nourish the skin. They often contain ingredients such as vitamins, antioxidants, and essential oils, which can help soothe and protect the skin. Our cream cleanser comes with argan and papaya oil that helps retain moisture. And comes with high levels of Vitamin E to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines. These nourishing ingredients can help to improve overall health and appearance over time.
Cream cleansers can also be multipurpose, meaning they can be used to remove makeup and cleanse the skin. This can be a great time-saver for those who prefer a more straightforward skincare routine. By using a cream cleanser that can remove makeup, you can eliminate the need for a separate makeup remover. Additionally, it can streamline your skincare routine.
Which One Should You Choose?
When choosing between foaming cleansers and skin cleansing creams, the best option for you will depend on your specific skin type and concerns. A foaming cleanser may be a good option if you have oily or acne-prone skin. However, a cleansing cream may be better for dry or sensitive skin.
It’s also important to consider any other skin renewal products you may be using, such as retinoids or exfoliants. These products can dry or irritate the skin, so a gentle cleansing cream may be a better option to avoid further irritation.
Regardless of which type of cleanser you choose, following a few basic guidelines when cleaning your skin is important. First, always remove your makeup before washing your skin. This will ensure that your cleanser can effectively remove impurities from your skin. Second, avoid using hot water when washing your face, as this can be drying and irritating. Instead, use lukewarm water to cleanse your skin.
Finally, follow up with a moisturiser after cleansing your skin. This will help hydrate, protect your skin, and prevent daily moisture loss.
Both foaming and skin cleansing creams can effectively clean your skin. However, what is best suited for you depends on your skin type and needs.
