    I’ve read on a blog that foam cleansers should always be avoided as it dries out your skin. The blog I read this from also recommends the double cleansing method starting with an oil based cleanser and states that this is the method that Koreans and japaneses people do. By looking at your blog and multiple popular blogs who do the double cleansing method, everyone seems to have some type of foam cleanser. I’m kind of confused now. So do foam cleansers not dry you out?

      Hi Melissa! I just read the post you’re referring to and noticed that it was dated 2011. Back then there was a lot less awareness of how the pH level of cleansers impacted our skin, so I would agree with her statement at the time that most “foaming” cleanser used harsh surfactants like SLS and were probably high pH.

      However, in recent years there has been a huge increase in the number of low-pH foaming cleansers that use gentle surfactants which won’t strip your skin dry. Of course, foaming cleansers by nature will always be more drying than non-foaming cleansers, so it really comes down to your skin type and which formula feels better for you. I have combination skin so I personally don’t mind foaming cleansers, as long as they’re low pH and don’t contain SLS.

        Thank you I was really confused. I stayed clear of foam cleansers for two years now, and have only been using milk and cream cleansers as a second cleanse. I see a lot of blogs always reaching for a foam cleanser for their second cleanse. Is there any reason why besides a low ph level? Or are those the best on the market right now?

        • Jenny says:

          Happy to help :) Do you mean why a lot of bloggers are using foam cleansers as a second cleanser? I think a lot of this is skin type + personal preference. I know some bloggers that have dry skin and they avoid foaming cleansers because those are typically more drying in comparison. I personally switch between this Yadah Bubble Cleanser and my old CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser depending on how my skin feels.

      She states “to get foam you need to use a surfactant – and a surfactant turns your skin alkaline. Alkaline skin is like a petri dish for bacteria. The irony being that so many cleansers pushed on to acne/combination skins are foaming.”

  2. My skin has been very dry no thanks to the bloody winter this year so I avoid anything that foams but this might work in the Summer time. Completely out of topic, I am curious of your thoughts on Boscia and Cosrx? I am planning to explore both brands this year and wonder what you think about them.

    • Jenny says:

      I actually haven’t tried Boscia yet but I’ve tried CosRX and really like some of their products (snail essence, AHA, and BHA). CosRX reminds me a bit of The Ordinary in that they use simple but effective ingredients and no fillers. They even both have that minimal design! I wasn’t super thrilled with CosRX’s sleeping masks though, but people seem to like them a lot.
