It took me a while to warm up to 3Lab Perfect Cleansing Foam. My first issue was that it's not really a foam. This 3Lab product is more of a thick wash-off cream cleanser. The other thing was the the presence of tiny grainy beads that upon first contact feel like an exfoliator but melt instantly. What's that all about? The answer is that these are moisturizing vitamin E beads that hydrate and soften the skin while the cream itself cleanses and make debris and grime melt away, resulting in a very clean skin that doesn't feel tightened or dry. Once I got over the texture of the 3Lab Cleansing Foam I began to really appreciate what it did for me.
The creaminess of 3Lab Perfect Cleansing Foam makes it unsuitable for use with my Clarisonic brush. Instead, I either use it after a quick eye makeup removal or in the shower. I find that my skin feels calm and happy with it, and there are no traces of makeup left behind, or any skin flakes. Another thing I like is that you only need a pea size amount of the cleanser for the entire face and neck. It spreads easily into a thin but effective layer. That makes the price of this 3Lab cleanser sting a little less. The product has a very light lemon scent that adds to the fresh feeling.
