As I see it, if you don’t clear the grime from your face then your skincare products aren't getting to where they need to be so a decent face wash is absolutely essential. Being completely honest I’ve tended to steer clear of foaming face washes, but then came along Verso's Foaming Cleanser and completely changed that.
I always measure a good face wash by how it leaves my skin feeling post-use and whether or not it has the ability to clear-out my slightly dilated pores, this foaming magic satisfies both. Unlike other foaming cleansers, Verso’s has more of a gel-like texture to it and has a 2-way approach to cleaning the skin. There’s a bit of foam, but not a huge amount which is good, and then there’s a creamy gel that glides across the skin and helps to keep the skin’s natural moisture intact. This dual phase cleaning approach means the skin is left free from grime and dirt whilst retaining a soft and hydrated touch and this is exactly what you want and need from your face wash.
How is the foam created?
The foaming action in Verso’s Foaming Cleanser comes from Coco-Betaine, a surfactant naturally found in coconuts. It’s commonly found in baby products and called upon for it’s gentle approach to lifting oil and dirt from the skin without causing irritation.
How does the face feel post-use?
My skin feels soft and hydrated, exactly what I look for in a cleanser. I don’t like my skin to feel taught after washing so Verso’s Foaming Cleanser scores 10/10 for that.
What are the key ingredients?
Carica Papaya Fruit Extract - this a natural exfoliant extracted from the flesh of the Papaya fruit. It gentle lifts dirt and dead skin from the face without the need for an abrasive. This is essential for those with sensitive or reddened skin. It also has powerful anti-bacterial properties meaning it neutralises nasties that the skin picks up throughout the day, the ones that usually cause spots!
Mangifera Indica Fruit Extract - found naturally in Mangos, this anti-viral and anti-oxidant extract treats the skin to a shot of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, both of which help to detoxify and remove impurities. Mango Extract has also been reported to improve skin elasticity and promote new skin cell growth.
How often should I you use it?
Preferably twice daily but if you're anything like me then once daily daily it is!
