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!

productinfo 
Brand: Clinique
Name: Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser
Price: £17
Where to buy: Clinique.co.uk, Clinique.com, 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.
packaging
P1090188
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!
application
P1170406
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.

P1170403
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.
mythoughts
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.
