Review: Laneige Pore Clear Cleansing Foam

Hello everyone!!!

Surprise! hehe yep! I'm still alive and kicking...pardon me for not posting even once for the past week..I'm just a little busy and also tired from work..I don't really like to type anymore when i get home since I've been typing the whole day already at yeah..but since I don't have work tomorrow, I decided to post today since this review is long overdue ^_^

I have posted my initial take on the Laneige cleansing foam from their Pore Clear line here.

I have been using this product for at least month (I think) already. I use this every night after my Mandom Cleansing Express Sebum which I use to remove my makeup and dirt. I don't really rely on cleansers in removing makeup especially if I use a BB cream.

Description from Laneige website:

- Extracts of water lily, orris and witch hazel effectively eliminate make-up remainders, harmful factors of environmental pollution and wastes in skin pores and purify skin.
- Triclosan and willow bark extracts, which are effective against skin trouble, make clear skin and control skin pore troubles.
- Breakable white scrubbers smoothly eliminate wastes in skin pores. The vitamin E in the blue capsules is absorbed into the skin and makes skin silky and healthy.

My Review:

What I like about it:
- this really cleanses my face. I don't have any makeup or dirt residue when I use my toner after. This is the best cleanser I tried so far :)
- The beads are so fine that you can't feel it in your skin when you're washing.
-it foams up easily so you only need a pea size amount for each wash. This cleanser will last me months for sure.
-smells reallly nice. I can't describe the scent coz I'm bad at that but it's not over powering to the nose.
-it doesn't sting my eyes and it doesn't hurt my nose (this happened to me in strong cleansers I tried before)
-available locally.
-Laneige gives a lot of freebies when you purchase any of their products. They're very generous IMO.

What I don't like about it:
- a little pricey. This 180ml tube cost Php1000 (around $20)
- can be drying to the skin since this is made for the oily ones. If you have combination-oily skin like me, better to use this maximum of once a day only. And prepare a good moisturizer just in case you do get dry skin because of this.

Will I re-purchase this? Definitely! I'll continue buying this until I found something better.
I am really, really happy with my purchase. I can't believe that I will love this product this much. So if you are looking for a good cleanser and you have oily skin, better check this product out. It's really worth trying ^_^
Till next time! I'll be reviewing another skincare product next ^_^

Thank you for dropping by..Bye!

thanks for the review, you know Laneige has always been an interesting brand for me because of the model Song Hye Kyo? Not sure of the spelling but I love her :)

hi Gale!

thanks for this review. haha! sayo pa nakakuha ng good review ano?

i think their price in the philippines is quite reasonable compared to Skin Food's (hehe baka lang pala with this facial wash ano?). i find skin food stuff really affordable here but why not back home? i've been thinking of buying Laneige products too but i love IOPE already.. they're from the same company and their prices range from P1200-1500 (i just converted korean won to peso).. similar ba jan?

this looks like a nice product. kaya lang i'm scared to invest 1k on something that might break me out. i wish they had a smaller size.

Nikki - I love her too! I saw pics of her without any makeup and her skin is so clear! You should try the brand, they have great quality products ^_^

Jehan - Haha I think everything from Laneige here is priced appropriately...maybe 200-300 pesos difference if you buy from Korea (this is based from pre-order prices ha)..I gave up on Skinfood na because of the price hike..imagine, their price is almost the same with Laneige?! I haven't tried any IOPE product but I already love Laneige hehe ^_^

I am interested in using this prod. I have their liquid fdn and it's really wonderful. It's sheer but it gives me a natural finish.;)
