My experience with Benton Honest Cleansing Foam:-
Benton Honest Cleansing foam has a pearly white creamy appearance with medium thin texture which is easy work with. I just need a dime sized amount of the cleanser to clean up my face, trust me I just need that no matter how dirty my face is :P. I squeeze just the tiny little bit amount of this cleanser on wet palms, rub them together which transforms it to a thick creamy lather and then apply it all over my face.
Within seconds the formulation picks up dirt and grimes from the skin surface and leaves me with a squeaky clean skin after rinsing it off with tap water. It washes off very quickly resulting in fresh and dirt free skin and absolutely no residue. I have a dry skin and it doesn’t feel too drying on me but I have to follow up with moisturizer to maintain the moisture level of my skin, though I feel oily/combination skin would love the results on them.
Don’t Miss to Checkout:
It is not a fragrance free product because it does have a soft floral scent but that is very mild and fades quickly.
It is a great option to be used after your creamy or oil based cleanser to take off all your makeup and give a final rinse with this foamy cleanser for that super clean skin.
FYI: Koreans believe in Double Cleansing Ritual for their skin, using Oil based cleanser for taking off all the oily stuff from skin and then a creamy foam to pull out all the dirt or dust accumulate on the skin.
Recommendation: Benton Honest Cleansing Foam makes a great foaming cleanser which gives a rich lather (not the lather you have seen with other face washes but really thick creamy one) with the tiniest amount of product. It rinses off fast leaving behind no traces or any slippery feel. It claims to be suitable for all skin types but I think it is a bit drying for dry skin so needs a little help from moisturizer.The claims of moisturizing the skin to minimize dryness doesn’t hold true for me.
The ingredients list also looks impressive with Water as the first one and lost of natural oils and extracts to follow. Overall, a pretty good cleanser for my dry skin in summers when it tends to get a bit oily on the t-zone but I will be skipping this in winters when my skin becomes super-dry. Get it if you are okay with using a separate cleanser for removing makeup as it doesn’t work well that ways but if used as a 2nd step cleanser it performs great!
FYI: The dryness is because of the pH levels of the cleanser which is usually high with foamy cleansers, hence they are more suitable to oily skin.
