Hate is a strong word, but...

By Melissa

from Glendora, CA

Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

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.

    Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

    I have oily and acne type skin and this is the first time that I find a facial cleanser that doesn't leave my skin greasy, that completely cleanses (takes off make up) with only a pea size amount and that also nourishes the skin leaving it looking better than any cleanser I've ever used (and I've used a lot).

      Super foamy and only need to use a small amount. Leaves skin feeling very clean. Using this cleaner with the toner by Clarins as well.

      Also, the Ulta employee who helped me pick it out was extremely knowledgeable and helped me with all my skin care questions.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

          I have struggled with mild acne as nothing seemed to clean my pores well. This cleanser makes my face feel and look CLEAN. I usually use twice a day, but sometimes also use cetaphil in between/after a workout, either way I pair my cleanser with the lotus face treatment oil and I have never been happier with my skin! I am definitely not changing cleansers anytime soon & I will be purchasing again when I run out!

          Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

          It is my favorite facial cleanser. My skin feels super clean after and balanced. Some make my skin start generating oil right after I clean, this doesn't. Bonus: it removes eye makeup! So it means it is quick and simple for getting clean. Used this for many years.

            Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

            The salesperson recommended this for my skin, I have pretty bad acne and very oily skin. And I do wear makeup often for work. So far it's been a week using this product and every time I use it, my skin feels soooo squeaky clean. I felt like the mini beads help out a lot too. My oily face has been better. I guess I just need a better moisturizer.

            Fantastic product if used correctly.

            By NYNY10001

            from New York City

            Comments about Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Tamarind:

            Dear Tamarind cleanser: Where have you been all my life?! I am so glad I found you. I have 43-year old normal skin and I wear a tough stay-on makeup daily, so my cleanser in the evening has to deliver. I have tried countless cleansers, but most left a sticky film behind. Not this one. In order to have this cleanser work properly, do not use too much, as it will not foam. If you only use a very small amount, about a pea size, and then add water a few times as you spread it around, it will foam up and rinse beautifully. It doesn't foam when you do this? You have not added enough water. Absolutely love this product. 5+ stars. Thank you, Clarins.

              This is the best product i've ever used on my oily skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh and soft and smooth. It perfectly balances my skin, not leaving me oily. Pleasant surprise after trying to the version for the normal skin and found that one too drying and harsh.

              Compared with the Cottonseed cleanser it leaves a softer less drying finish, but doesn't feel completely cleansing.

                I have been using this cleanser for about a month now. It isn't terrible, but nothing about it makes me really love it. I still feel a residue on my face after I cleanse and I don't think it does that great of a job at getting out all of the dirt. Even when I use with my clarisonic. I definitely prefer my purity face wash by philosophy. It is super gentle AND makes my face feel squeaky clean without stripping it

                • Q:

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

                    A:

                    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?

                    A:

                    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.

                    A:

                    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.
