    Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

    I have never found a face wash that worked for me until this one! I have horrible acne that I have been dealing with for 10 years! All the other face washes would dry me out, leave me super oily, and I would still have acne. This one keeps me clear with no oily skin and it's very gentle. So it's great for sensitive skin. It is a little more expensive but it's totally worth it. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

      When using this product in twice a day my skin look amazing I get quite a bit of acne from my touching my face and I don't eat well. This keeps my skin under control and gets all the oil off my skin after a long day. The beads are super gentle. I have very oil skin and this is a life saver for me.

                  Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

                  While I enjoyed the sample I had received (a little went a LONG way, and I thought the micro pearls would be a great way to clean off ALL of the makeup and sunscreen from the day), it was WAY too harsh on my skin. I wish there was a way to exchange this for my tried and true cleansers (cottonseed, shea butter). This exacerbated my once-dormant rosacea, caused much redness and breakouts. I love Clarins products, but I cannot recommend this.

                              I had been using Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser but over the winter found it was really drying my skin out. I read through the reviews of the Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind and gave it a try. It feels like butter. A small amount goes a long way. It doesn't necessarily "foam" as the name mentions, but a pea-size amount spreads over my entire face and neck. I recommend giving it a try, and pairing with your other cleansers. I would say I use this 4-5 days a week, and my other cleanser the other days.

                              I hated this. I have really oily skin, but HATE cleanser that completely strip your skin and give you that tight, literally "squeaky" feeling, and this wash did that to me. It reminded me a lot of Origins Checks and Balances face wash, which leaves you with that tightness, too. If you're into that kind of feeling (which is really bad for your skin FYI...) than this is the wash for you. For what it's worth-a little goes a long way and it foams really nicely.

                                Are the micro-pearls a natural exfoliating ingredient or plastic etc?

                                  The micro-pearls are a plant-based encapsulation of tamarind seed. The micro-pearl dissolves with water and releases the tamarind seed. Tamarind seed is the actual exfoliator.

                                Is this product effective for mature skin with large pores, which tends to get blackheads and occasional breakouts, and rosacea?

                                  This cleanser is ideal for combination/oily adult skin of any age. It effectively unclogs pores, helping to reduce breakouts. If you have a diagnosed skin condition such as rosacea, we recommend consulting your physician prior to use.

                                  Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind works best for combination to oily skin, though those with dry skin could certainly use it. Tamarind fruit acid helps to eliminate dry skin cells that block pores.
