Review: Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser

27. September 2017


The last products I received from LoveMyCosmetics as part of their ambassador program for the Korean brand Klairs is the Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser. I talked about the Klairs Gentle Black Cleansing Oil and Klairs Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish previously, so be sure to check out these two reviews as well. By now those who are reading my blog for some time know how much I love the products from the brand Klairs. I almost tried all their products at least once and they never disappoint me. A good thing is also that Klairs frequently updates their products regarding their ingredients or their packaging and volume. And usually they listen to the recommendations and remarks made from their customer in reviews.

Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser

Klairs is a Korean brand which is eco-friendly, producing products which are animal-testing-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, artificial-color-free and recently they are vegan, too. Their products address people with sensitive skin and people who want to moisturize their skin. I reviewed some of their products before, like the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin C Serum or the Klairs Midnight Blue Cream, which both convinced me in their effects. I also love the Klairs Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, which by the way has been updated and improved, too. Their saying “Simple but Enough” really nails it and I think that many people will agree in that point with me.

Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser

The Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser is a hypoallergenic face wash containing low irritant amino acids instead of chemical detergents. Together with hyaluronic acid, olive oil and ceramide 3 in addition to a pH of 5-6 it keeps the skins moisture level and prevents it from feeling dry. The cleanser comes in a pumping bottle, which makes it very easy to use and you do not have to use an additional foaming net to foam up the cleanser.

Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser

The ingredients are listed on the bottle itself:

Water, Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, Glycerin, Propylen glycol, Lauric acid, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Sodium hyaluronate, Dimethyl sulfone, Potassium hydroxide, Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, Betaine, Stearic acid, Chamaecyparis obtusa water, Ananas sativus(pineapple) fruit extract, Chlorphenesin, Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil, Illicium verum (anise) fruit extract, Citrus paradisi (grapefruit) fruit extract, Nelumbium speciosum flower extract, Paeonia suffruticosa root extract, Scutellaria baicalensis root extract, Panthenol, Citric acid, Pyridoxine, Linum usitatissimum (linseed) seed extract, Hibiscus esculentus fruit extract, Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Arctium lappa root extract, Hibiscus mutabilis flower extract, Corchorus olitorius leaf extract, Hydrolyzed pea protein, Lecithin, Olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, Phytosterols, Squalane, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Ceramide NP, Propanediol, Apium graveolens (celery) extract, Brassica oleracea capitata (cabbage) leaf extract, Brassica oleracea italica (broccoli) extract, Brassica rapa (turnip) leaf extract, Daucus carota sativa (carrot) root extract, Oryza sativa (rice) bran extract, Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) fruit/leaf/stem extract, Lysine hcl, Proline, Sodium ascorbyl phosphate, Acetyl methionine, Theanine, Tocopheryl acetate, Panax ginseng callus culture extract, Piper methysticum leaf/root/stem extract, Centella asiatica extract, Portulaca oleracea extract, Beta-glucan, Papain

There are a lot of plant-based ingredients included in this cleanser. Just some to stress some are : licorice extract, aloe vera, tea tree oil, shea butter, rice bran extract…ect. But also fruit extracts like pineapple and papain for a light peeling effect. The product is free from alcohol, animal testing, parabens and artificial pigments. also it is designed as an eco-friendly product. You can also check out Skincarisma for an ingredient analysis.

Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser

The foam itself is very soft and not a thick solid foam like you would expect from shaving foam for example. There are visible bubbles and it has a herbal scent to it. I use the Klairs Rich Moist Cleansing Foam as second step of my cleansing routine after I have removed the makeup with another oil-based cleanser. This cleanser is also not made for removing make up. Instead it will make your skin feel clear and cared for after you already removed the layer of your makeup. I think it is a nice cleanser and it doesn’t dry out my skin, even after several cleansing steps.

Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser

If you are looking for a good and non-drying, easy to use second cleanser for your double cleansing routine you will like this cleanser. The pump application makes it so easy to use and saves you some time. The ingredients are great, too, and eco-friendly on top! It is made for all skintypes and comes with 100 ml in full-size. The Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser retails for 22,95 € from LoveMyCosmetics. Oh, and here is a little bonus for my lovely readers: You can get a discount of 10% using the coupon code “misslavenklairs” while shopping on LoveMyCosmetics!

Review: It’s Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam

1. April 2015


Another cleansing product review, and this time it is my least favourite cleanser I’m using currently, the It’s Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam (I still have two or three other foam cleansers to use up, a cleansing water and cleansing balms…I think I have enough supplies for this year :D).

It's Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam

I think this is my first It’s Skin product I’m reviewing here on Berries In The Snow. Unfortunately, I do not really like it. It’s Skin is a Korean brand made by dermatologists at Seoul University and it was created to recover the natural power of the skin. The brand is not expansive, but on the same level like Etude House. They also have some cute designs for some of their products, so in general it is an interesting brand, especially their Power 10 Formula bottles intrigue me and I heard positive reviews about it. The It’s Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam is part of 5 different cleansing foams in the It’s Skin Have A cleansing foam line, which are Orange, Banana, Greengrape and Eggshell.

It's Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam

Each of the five cleansing foams comes in a packaging displaying a picture of the key ingredient. The It’s Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam has- of course- a pomegranate displayed. The pink colored plastic tube looks kind of cute, too. The ingredients are listed on COSDNA and there are some irritating ingredients used as emulsifiers, but most of the ingredients are safe. Also, the plant extracts, like the key ingredients pomegranate is one of the last ingredients, which is a bit dissapointing. It smells of pomegranate though, but not heavily. The foam itself has a white, shimmery, cream texture. It foams up nice, but not as a super dense foam either. The PH of the cleanser lies at 8, which makes it quite drying for the skin. Below you can have a look how the cleanser performes on my arm with a couple of makeup products. As you can see, this foam cleanser is – similar to the Benton Honest Cleansing Foam I reviewed before- not suited to remover waterproof makeup. It can serve enough as second cleanser, if you remove your makeup previously with a cleansing oil or balm. Unfortunately, it leaves the skin dry and tense, which is the reason I do not like this cleanser.

It's Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleansing Foam

I would recommend the Benton Honest Cleansing Foam over this cleansing foam, because you can really feel a difference how the two cleansers leave your skin after cleansing. The Benton cleanser is really gentle and leaves the skin hydrated, but the It’s Skin Have A Pomegranate Cleanser makes my skin feel tight and dry. If you want to try it anyways you can find the It’s Skin Have A Foam Cleansers at W2Beauty for 13.14 US$. 

What is your favourite foam cleanser? did you try any of the It’s Skin cleansing Foams?

Review: Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

23. March 2015

As you might remember, my relationship to Benton products is not the best. I tried they Benton Snail Bee Steam Cream and the Snail Bee High Content Skin, but my skin didn’t seem to like either of the two products. There are many different opinions towards Benton skincare products and there are people in love with it and other people don’t like it. Nevertheless, when I heard about the new Benton Honest Cleansing Foam I was curious about it, and somehow I was lucky enough to receive the reviewing opportunity for this product by Jolse.

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

The Korean skincare brand Benton did unleash a noticable raving amongst lots of bloggers. Especially the high quality of the ingredients, without any additional fragnances or other fillers did impress most people. Also, the key ingredient in their famous Benton Snail Bee skincare line being snail secretion filtrate in first place and adding bee venom on top made it widely appalling for skincare junkies. Apart from all the raving people there were also incidents of people breaking out from the Benton Snail Bee line, and I had also a similar experience. As soon as I stopped using it my skin recovered. Nevertheless, I’m giving the Benton skincare a new chance by trying their newest addition to their skincare line, the Honest Cleansing Foam. This cleanser promises not only to cleanse your skin, but also deliver the necessary moisture to the skin. This is a high promise, since most foaming cleansers tend to be drying.

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

The cardboard box of Benton’s Honest Cleansing Foam consists mainly of description either in Korean or English. It describes how to use the product and the full ingredient list. You can check the ingredients on COSDNA, too, and they are safe to use. The ingredients are mainly plant extract and oils. Inside the cardboard box you will find a tube containing the foam cleanser. Similar to the cardboard box the packaging of the tube is very simple. The white plastic tube comes with a simple black cap. The tube was sealed when it arrived, so you can be sure that it was unopened before.

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

The backside of the tube shows some Korean and English descriptions again. The Benton Honest Cleansing Foam has a shelf life of 6 months after opening and contains 150 g volume. The tube (and the cardboardbox) also show the web address of the official Benton page.

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

The foam cleanser itself has a white creamy texture with a glossy appearance. If foams up nicely with a foaming net, but the foam is not as dense as for the Rosemine Floral Remedy Cleanser. The pH is unfortunately between 7-8, so people using more acid cleansers will have to skin this one. It has a light soapy scent, which gives the feeling of being clean and fresh.

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

The Benton Honest Cleansing Foam has an average perfomance when it comes to makeup. As you can see below it has problems with waterproof makeup. It will serve nicely if you are using a two step cleansing routine with an oil cleanser at first. I would not rely on the Benton Honest Cleansing Foam for washing off makeup. Apart from this, it leaves the skin in a nice condition, and here is my most surprising verdict from this cleanser: I thought the Rosemine Floral Remedy Cleanser was gentle to my skin, but this feels amazing afterwards! It feels like having cleansed with an oil cleanser. It is not stripping at all (even though the pH is higher). Speaking for dry skinned people, this foam cleanser was really the first one (despite the Sum 37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick– if you would count it as foam cleanser) that did moisturize my skin after washing it!

Benton Honest Cleansing Foam

Do I recommend the Benton Honest Cleansing Foam? So, if you are looking for low pH cleansers this one is not for you. If you are looking for a one step cleansing product I wouldn’t recommend this cleanser either. But if you are using a two step cleansing routine and you don’t want to remove special makeup from your skin and your previous foam cleanser have been too drying I can recommend this one to you. I tried it or almost three weeks now and I didn’t have any negative reactions towards this product either, which really makes me happy considering my previous experience with Benton products. You can get this foam cleanser from Jolse and it is discounted to 11.88 US$ at the moment.

Review: Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

3. March 2015

I reviewed the Rosemine Plumpy Tint a while ago and here is my review for the Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser, which was part of the MeMeBox Rose Scentbox, too. This is one of my favourite foam cleansers so far and I’ve almost used it up.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

The brand Rosemine is made by the Korean cosmetic manufacturing company called “EVAS”. The name is not chosen randomly, I think, because they stress the point, that their brand is wants to “give people clean & safe lifestyle (by Christian principle)”. I’m feeling a bit discomfortable if a cosmetic brand or company also makes religious remarks, since skincare and cosmetics should be reaching beyond religious aspects…Apart from my critisism towards the brand’s philosophy I want to point out that I really do like this cleanser. Ilove the floral packaging design, and also the Rosemine Plumpy Tint did convince me design-wise. The cardboard box the foam cleanser comes in is printed with a floral pattern and looks very pretty.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

Unfortunately, the cardboard box only contains Korean description, but from the images of the products webpage I could conclude that this cleanser contains a bunch of different flower extracts, especially rose extracts. It also smells of roses, which is really nice if you love rose scented products. Moreover, you’ll find rose petals within the foam, which reminded me of the Sum37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick (I still am planning to do a review for it…>_<). The cleanser also contains coconut, which is a beneficial ingredient aswell. The foaming cleanser comes in a tube which has a matching design to the cardboard box. It looks really girlish with the flowers and the pink and white stripes and the baby blue cap.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

The backside of the tube has some short Korean description printed on, too.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

How does the Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser perform? First of all, the product comes out as a beige, shiny and yet creamy product. It contains rose petals (unfortunately, in my shot there is none XD), and creates a dense and full foam. If you love foam cleansers you will like the foaming ability of this cleanser. You only need a small amount to create enough foam for the whole face, especially when using a facial brush/electric facial brush or a foaming net, like I do use in the picture below. I use a chickpea sized amount of the product usually. The cleanser has a pH of 7, which might be not acid enough for some people.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

I usually use this cleanser as a second step after I use the Klairs Cleansing Oil, but even on its own this cleanser performs great and removes almost all makeup products. In my test below you can see that it cleansed away everything and just some very light stains from the lip products remained.

Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser

I have mostly dry skin and some foaming cleansers might additionally feel drying on my skin, but I didn’t have the feeling here. The skin doesn’t feel squeeky, but simply clean and refreshed afterwards. I would even call this an alternative for the Sum37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick, if you love it because of the rose ingredient. It retails for 18900 Won (~19 US$) on the product site. If you would like to try it I would recommend you to ask at testerkorea at their “want” section.

Review: Skinmiso Rice Foam Cleanser

9. February 2014
Here is another foam cleanser I’m using at the moment: Skinmiso Rice Foam Cleanser. I’m always curious about skincare products containing rice ingredients, since rice is well known for its skin benefits. This foam cleanser is claimed to be the best facial foam cleanser by Wishtrend, where you can buy it.

The packaging is simple and looks very clinical. It gives the impression of being a medical product. Indeed, the product description says that it contains many natural ingredients derived from plants, so it should be beneficial for the skin.


Here is the description taken from Wishtrend:

The best facial cleansing foam !

SKINMISO’s Rice Foam Cleansing is the best facial cleansing foam ! It uses many natural ingredients derived from plants so that the product is not harmful to your skin. It effectively removes dirt, dead skin cells, and makeup from your skin all while keeping your skin moisturized by regulating the sebum-water balance !

Removes dead skin cells, excess sebum, and cleans deep into pores.
Papaya extracts in this facial cleansing foam gently removes dead skin cells and excess sebum without damaging your skin. 
Effectively removes sun block, BB cream, and other makeup !The fine yet rich lather of this facial cleansing foam has great capabilities to effectively remove all types of makeup that has built up on your skin during the day.
Regulates skin’s sebum-water balance and nourishes for clear skin !Rice extract included in this facial cleansing foam serves as a great regulator of sebum-water balance. It also adds much needed nutrients to your skin. 
Plus-10 Patented Complex !This patented complex is comprised of the 10 ingredients found in nature. This formula increases elasticity of your skin and is also a great antioxidative agent.



This facial cleansing foam is perfect for :

  • People who have excess sebum secretion.
  • People who have dead skin cell build up on their skin.
  • People who have dull looking skin.
  • People who are concerned about their whiteheads and blackheads.
  • People who want clean but not dry skin.
  • People who want an effective facial cleansing.

Water, Myristic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Lauric Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Cocamide DEA, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, PEG-6, Diglycerin, Glycol Stearate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Phellinus Linteus Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract


The product has the typical moussy consictency of foam cleansers. It is white colored and has a difficult to describe scent. I’m not good in describing scents anyway, but the scent is a mixture between sweet and fresh, but it is neither flowery nor herbal….>_<”’ Excuse me that I’m not able to describe it in a better way…

It lathers into a fine and rich foam. If I use my new Konjak Sponge I only need a tiny amount and I get enough foam already. I think it will be the same if you use a cleansing brush. The cleansing effect is also good. It cleanses reliably make-up. The skin feels clear and soft afterwards and also a bit brightened up- which is probably the effect of the removed dead skin cells. For very dry skin: don’t forget to use moisturizer afterwards, because it is not leaving your skin moisturized. But that’s with almost all foam cleansers. I think this cleanser will work great on oily skin, because of the sebum reduction effect it claims to have. Since I have dry skin mostly, I cannot judge this part. I’ve been using this foam cleanser for 4 weeks now and it didn’t give me any irritations or breakouts.

If you are curious about this foam cleanser you can have a look at Wishtrend’s online store. It is available for US$ 12.99. At the moment it is available with free shipping as far as I know. If you’ve never ordered at Wishtrend you’ll get a one-time free shipping voucher upon registration.

Review: Tonymoly Clean Dew Olive Seed Foam Cleanser

7. December 2013
I wanted to try another affordable foam cleanser and while having a look in various web stores I found this Clean Dew Olive See Foam Cleanser by Tonymoly. There are various different Clean Dew  Foam Cleanser available, but I chose Olive Seed because it is designed for dry skin.

The packaging is quite simple and not really special, with an image of some olives on it. The foam cleanser comes in a squeeze tube and it smells of fresh olives, at least I suppose that it should be fresh olives and somehow I can imagine it to be exactly that. XD

The cleanser has a creamy consistency when it comes out of the tube, but if you add water it builds up a foam. It is not the finest foam I’ve seen, but it is foam actually. The efficiency of the cleanser is good. I applied different eyeliner, mascara, lip liner and lipstick on my arm and it removed everything except of the super waterproof eyeliner from Miss Hana (click >>here<< for the review).
The feeling left behind on the skin is fresh and clear  and the fresh natural scent increases this effect. This cleanser removes make up, is refreshing and it is cheap, so it is definitively worth a try. And it does not dry out my skin, although I have to point out that I think Missha’s Cream Chocolate Latte cleanser (review >>here<<) is more moisturizing.
This tube contains 150 ml and is really a pricey cleanser. I bought it at for 2900 Won (~US$ 2.90). At the moment it is on sale for 2030 Won (~US$ 2.00). Apart from the Olive Seed Foam Cleanser, there is a Tree Seed Foam Cleanser for acne prone skin and five other ones with Acerola, Lemon Red Grapefruit, Aloe and Blueberry. You can probably also find it on ebay for various prices, but it shouldn’t be expansive.

Review: Beyond Phytoganic Facial Foam

12. October 2013
Todays review is about Beyond’s Phytoganic Facial Foam. Do you know Beyond? If not: Beyond is a natural cosmetic brand and part of LG Household & Health Care and thus a korean brand. I discovered them when I saw some ultracute sheetmasks they have (and I bought the sheet masks,too, but didn’t review them until know >_<”’).

Facial Foam means nothing else than a cleanser. I was a bit confused first, especially because you find only few information in english. So what is “phytoganic”? I’m not an expert, but the term phytogAnic is not something I know. On the other hand there is the term phytogEnic or Phytogenics, which means derrived from plants. I guess it simply means, that the ingredients they use for this cleanser are mainly derrived from plants and herbs (if anybody has more information about this, pls comment :D )

The description is taken from
(I hope the translation is correct :D)
Refreshing, rich, dense foam cleanser which eliminates skin impurities. Natural ingredients and natural herbs to reduce irritation of the skin and clear mind and body.  
Dermatologically Tested
No Chemical Preservatives
No Chemical Colorants
Against Animal Testing
Eco Beauty Lab
Recyclable packaging
Ingredients: Water, green tea extract *, Lau Rick acid, pre-Stick acid, disodium coco cancer Podium acetate, potassium hydroxide, Coca Polyimide di yieyi, Butylene Glycol, Lavender Flower Extract *, basil flower / leaf extract *, marshmallow root Extract *, H. cordata Extract *, Chamomile Flower Extract *, Rosemary Leaf Extract *, Fennel Extract *, apple water, glycerin, potassium chloride, panthenol, magnolia bark extract, white willow bark extract, wanggyul extracts, propolis extract, one hundred kinds of KEVIN extract, chamomile flower / leaf extract, sodium tetra two dt A, mugwort extract, olive oil, Meadow foam seed oil, tocopheryl acetate, geranium oil *, lavender oil *, rosemary leaf oil *, Fragrance (* certified organic ingredients)












If you open the tube the first thing to recognize is the really refreshing herbal scent. If you don’t like herbal scents, you’ll probably not like it. The product inside the tube is a clear gel which can be lethered to foam with water. In the picture above I just used a tiny bit of water, but if you really wash your face you can get the foam described in the product description above. It does a good job in cleaning, too. At the moment I use the lighter Chocolate Latte Foam Cleanser from Missha (>>here<<) in the morning and this one in the evening. Somehow I can keep telling myself that it reduces the daily stress…^_^”’

If you are a fan of natural products you should try Beyond’s Phytoganic Facial Foam (the one I bought is a travel size tube) or have a look at the other products by Beyond. I have nothing bad to say about this cleanser, since it does a good job. The tiny tube contains 30 ml and does only cost 1600 Won (around US$ 1.6) at– it’s super cheap, so it is worth a try.
