- Our Foaming Facial Cleanser contains an enzyme and amino acid blend that loosens makeup, oil, and other impurities on the skin and in the pores. The rich foam gently lifts those impurities and rinses them away, leaving your skin feeling clean and balanced. This Foaming Facial Cleanser is oil-free, sensitive, and pH-balanced.
- This face wash is gentle enough for sensitive and acne-prone skin. EltaMD face cleanser is for daily use, morning and night. Directions: Pump a moderate amount of cleanser to damp skin. Massage in gently and evenly to moistened face and neck. Allow 30 seconds for the cleanser to foam. Once the cleanser has foamed, rinse off well with lukewarm water. If the cleanser does not foam after 30 seconds, rinse and repeat to ensure thorough cleansing. Gently pat skin dry with a soft towel.
This is my favorite facial cleanser. I usually wash my hands before washing my face. While my hands are still wet from having washed them, I will put one pump of this foaming facial cleanser in my hands and apply to my face. After about 10 seconds of scrubbing gently on my face it creates a dense foam.... do not expect a bubbly foam like a bubble bath... this is not meant to create suds but a thick dense foam. This helps clean out the pores without any air pockets getting in the way. My skin always feels so fresh and deeply cleanser afterwards. I have normal-oily skin.
I’m happy with this purchase. I disagree with some of the comments. Does it foam, yes however, if you are expecting a moisturizing substance to foam allot you may be disappointed. It foams into a thick creamy foam which is nice. Does the pump get clogged, yes but the easy solution is to run your finger across it each time used. It has not been an issue and would not lower the rating of the product within the bottle for it. I have sensitive skin and this has helped regulate ph and moisture. I’m using this as we set record cold temps so expect I’ll like it even more as the weather improves.
This product was recommended by the esthetician in my dermatologist's office. It arrived undamaged and the product itself is wonderful and cleansing for the skin without drying or irritation. One tiny comment: attention to detail in packaging before mailing would have been a good idea. Other reviewers have commented on the product being damaged in transit. Mine arrived in a flimsy limp padded envelope, and I was surprised it survived intact. The box in which the product was packaged was mangled but fortunately the product itself was fine. I personally use a better grade of padded envelope (purchased on ) when I mail hand-made greeting cards, so I was a bit disappointed to receive an item costing almost thirty dollars in a flimsy and light-weight envelope. The shipper needs to pay attention to detail and not skimp on necessary product packaging.
I’ve been trying this for about 2 weeks now and I love it. I’ve tried lots of Ph balanced cleansers, but this one beats them all. It actually makes suds. Most do not. Somehow you feel like it’s getting your face cleaner if you can see and feel suds. LOL. The very faint fragrance is nice, and I’m sensitive to smells. If I had to find any complaint about this cleanser, it would be the dispenser. The spout is a little larger and tends to get clogged occasionally. I run it under the hot water, and it’s fine. I’m currently using a number of the Elta MD products—some were recommended by my dermatologist several years ago. I’m very pleased with them all. Highly recommend.
I don’t buy many skincare products but I love this cleanser! At first I was concerned that the price was expensive for a facial cleanser but I happily discovered that a pea-sized amount is sufficient to lather your face and neck! I have sensitive skin and this gently but thoroughly cleans makeup and sunscreen from my skin. It has a great scent and leaves your face clean and soft-not dry. It is great to use before the Barrier Renewal Complex and UV Daily MoIsturizing Facial Sunscreen. I wish the cleanser came in a smaller container to use in the shower but the pump fits nicely on my bathroom counter.
