Review: Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser

Today I'm doing a review of Clinique's Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser. I have so many reviews I would like to do so I'm trying to power through some ones I think that would be useful! I also hope to do some fashion stuff soon!

Brand: Clinique
Name: Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser
Price: £17
Where to buy:,, Boots, Clinique counters worldwide.

Clinique says you can use this as a makeup remover but I would rather do a regular double cleanse, with this as the second cleanser. I don't trust rubbing soapy foam into my eyes to remove eyeliner and mascara...It says it can be used for any skin type and leaves skin feeling moist, clean and fresh.
I got a travel sized tube of Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser in a bonus time gift. The packaging is almost exactly the same except the full sized tube has a green lid. The tube is soft plastic and I cut it in half after I couldn't squeeze any more cleanser out so that I could get the remnants out with a cotton bud. It gave me about a week's extra usage!
Here's the cleanser when lathered up with hands. It produces quite a thin yet creamy foam. You can control the foam by how much water you mix in. If you just wet your hands, it creates a thick, ultra-cleansing foam but if you 'dilute' it more, it produces a light, bubbly foam.

Here is the cleanser on Clinique's Sonic Cleansing Brush. It has a mousse like texture when squeezed out.

I apply a bit of water to the brush head and the cleanser goes into the bristles.

This is the cleanser after it's been worked into a lather. It produces a thicker, creamier lather than using your hands alone.

This cleanser does a good job of cleaning your skin but it's a bit drying for my skin type. I have to dilute the cleanser to make a very light foam in order for my face to not feel squeaky clean or stripped. I can't use this cleanser like my regular one, twice a day every day, as it's just too drying. Small dry patches appear on my face if I use it regularly. I took this cleanser when I went travelling and used it up that way.

Compared to the Clinique Foaming Sonic Facial Soap, this soap is a bit stronger and more 'cleansing'. I can use the Foaming Facial Soap daily, unlike this one.
This cleanser is effective but a bit too drying for my skin (I'm a Type 1-2 in Clinique terms). I couldn't use it regularly on a daily basis so I wouldn't buy a full sized version. This cleanser gets 2 stars out of 5 from me.
