Don't you just love taking pictures on overcast days :P

I usually rotate between three of my "I will never be without" facial cleansers and, today, I wanted to share one of them you: Estee Lauder's Soft Clean Moisture Rich Foaming Cleanser. 

I've been using this cleanser for god knows how long now (translation: a very long time) and I absolutely love it!!!!! Now, keep in mind, I have normal to dry skin (very dry during winter). The Soft Clean Moisture Rich Foaming Cleanser keeps my skin from feeling dry and tight; instead, it leaves my skin feeling (and looking) smooth, clear, moisturized, and clean. This cleanser has a pleasing fresh floral scent that's not abrasive. The texture of this cleanser is velvety thick and lathers into a rich foam that washes off easily leaving no residue or stripping the skin of any moisture. You only need but a teenie tiny about of this product. If you use a pea size've used too much!, a 4.2 fl.oz/ 125 ml tube will last you eons.  

Now, I want to mention a little (HUGE) pet peeve of mine when it comes to facial cleansers: facial cleansers are meant to CLEANSE your face...not to remove makeup!! That's why makeup removers exist- to do just that, REMOVE MAKE-UP :) Like the late great omnipotent supreme Kevyn Aucoin used to say, now I'm not quoting him exactly here, because I can't remember the man's exact words, but...if you're going to take the time to put makeup on, then you need to take the time to take it off. if you want to cleanse your face properly, first, you should use make-up remover to take any makeup off, and then, wash your face with your cleanser. Your cleanse won't be as effective at cleaning your face if you have a layer of makeup over your skin. So, don't be a lazy lassies and please remove your makeup first :) 

My final thought/word on Estee Lauder Soft Clean Moisture Rich Foaming Cleanser is that I love it, need it, can't be without it! I've gone through 6 tubes and I'll continue to repurchase. If you have normal, dry, very dry or even combination skin, I would recommend you give this facial cleanser a try. Estee Lauder Soft Clean Moisture Rich Foaming Cleanser retails for $20 (4,200 yen in about price hike) and can be purchased at,, and wherever else Estee Lauder is sold. 

What are some of your favorite facial cleansers and what type of skin do you have?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time 


  1. Hi! Love all of the make-up posts, especially the creative and helpful! Recently, I've noticed my facial and eye creams just aren't cutting it anymore. I'm at a loss in searching for new products...could you perhaps suggest a good anti-aging cream for face and eyes in your next post? Thanks! Keep up the good work! Your blog is the BEST!

    1. Hi Liza :)

      Thank you for the awesome compliments :DDDDD

      First, what ever you buy, first make sure they have a good return policy just in case you're not satisfied with the results. Great skincare can be very expensive!! try Estee Lauder's Time Zone Line and Wrinkle Reducing Creme SPF 15 (face) and Time Zone Anti-line/Wrinkle Eye Creme,they both come in purple bottles. Hope this helps :)
