Questions & Answers for Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser

Question
Scent
Can someone describe the scent of this face wash? I am pretty particular. I like Ole Henricksen's African Red Tea cleanser. It is a little more - I think $30. Can anyone compare the two? They are both pump/mousse type cleansers that are all natural. thank you!!

I can't compare the 2 foaming cleansers for you - but caudalie wakes up the senses just enough with a chamomile/grape (not the fruity grape - but REAL green grape) scent. I can't describe it well - but having let multiple friends try my cleanser, they all love the scent!

If you enjoy Ole Henriksen's African Red Tea Cleanser you would probably love this cleanser as well. The scent is mild and based in grape seed extract.

Both products have a foaming action and cleanse and tone in one step. The African Red Tea Cleanser does a slightly better job of removing eye makeup, and the Instant Foaming Cleanser is slightly more gentle.

You should not have a waxy feel after washing - even with combination skin. Make sure you're getting good coverage with the foam, massage well and use a clean wash cloth to rinse, not just your fingers. A great addition two times a week is Caudalie's mild exfoliant scrub mixed right in with the foaming cleanser - it's a nice boost.

I have combination skin and my face never feels waxy after washing with Caudalie. To remove make up properly depending on how many layers are there, you should rinse at least 2-3 times for heavier make up especially the mascara. For lighter make up just foundation only one rinse can do.

This cleanser is not drying. It's gentle but effective. My skin used to be dry, patchy but oily and full of zits. I think it was confused because of the Glycolic and other fruit acids I was using. I stopped it all and started using this cleanser and the Caudalie serum. Followed up with a Boscia moisturizer....oil free for summer. My skin stopped acting crazy after a month and just calmed down. Best thing I have ever done. Get the small travel size and try it for one month and see if it works for you. If it doesn't, return it.

It's great for acne prone skin. I had blackheads, whiteheads, permanent grease stains on my face. I no longer have that problem. I stil have large pores but that can never be corrected. This cleanser with the Boscia Vital moisturizer, Caudalie mask and Boscia clay mask keeps it in check. I came to the realization that my skin was over reacting to the harsh chemicals. Once i stopped treating my acne with that stuff and started treating it in a gentle manner, it calmed down.

I have mild acne on my T-zone and this has helped a lot! It doesn't dry my breakouts out (which is good because my skin is combination so it doesn't hurt my dry patches either) but it cleans deeply to clear my pores. If used once or twice a day for a couple days (my skin usually needs 3) the blemishes will disappear. For serious acne breakouts, I would combine it with a stronger, more acidic cleanser. Hope this helps!

Honestly the only thing that helps with pores is a good facial. I have large pores myself and no product can get in there, clean it all up and make them smaller. Products can help significantly more when you are having a facial once every month at first and then reduce it to as needed. Speaking from personal expericence. I know it can be pricy, I am trying to get a facial again now because in the long run it is absolutely worth it.

Hi! I also use the cleanser and Vinoperfect serum. My pores are not getting larger though. I am not sure if you want to add more to your routine but this is what I do. I use the Caudalie mask (no scrubbing) twice a week. I also use the Boscia Detox mask twice a week. The masks are twice a week in the summer and once a week in the winter. I use the Vinoperfect at night only and do not add anything else on top. I use a Boscia moisturizer in the day with SPF 15 and do not use the Vinoperfect in the day. My pores have cleared out as a result. Maybe you need to add a mask or two, something gentle so as not to irritate the pores.

If you like Caudalie, skip the face serum and the lotion your using and buy their new Vinosource Creme Sorbet lotion, it's perfect and it seems to be minimizing my pores a bit. I use it with this cleanser. Large pores are normally caused my too much oil and your skin over produces oil when its dehydrated and dry so you may want to try this lotion it's very hydrating and does not irritate my acne. It seems to be helping to clear my acne. Hope that helps some! Remeber less is more! Don't get caught up in the gimicks and using a million different products.

I too have combo skin (though people say it is normal). But I started using Clinique's Deep Cleansing Emergency Mask, and the 2 (Caudalie's instant foaming cleanser) work well together (for me, at least). I have dropped using a toner as well about a year ago, I figure if you can get a few good products, the fewer products you actually need to use.

Hello,
I use all the same products that you are using in the Caudalie line and have similar skin to yours, I have'nt experienced the larger pores problem though. I learned from my dermatologist to apply any type of cleanser with a warm washcloth and use a circular motion, this exfoliates and helps minimize pores. I think that this might be the trick, my skin has never looked better.
Hope it Helps!!!

Yes I would suggest a light moisturizer especially during bed time. I felt it can dry out my skin a little bit after cleaning my face.

I use a moisturizer in the day time after cleansing (Boscia oil free in the summer and Boscia Vital in the winter). At night after cleaning I use the Caudalir Vinoperfect. This cleanser does not strip the skin of the vital moisture the skin needs.

It's definitely not as harsh as regular cleansers, so you MAY be able to get away w/no moisturizer afterwards. However, especially w/the dry winter air, you'll probably need to put something on your face (I always follow up w/lotion). If it's before bed and you're just lazy (like me), I would recommend even just quickly spritzing your face w/a spray moisturizer (The Body Shop has a light vitamin C one and one thats a bit more moisturizing). This cleanser is great for cleaning skin w/out over-stripping it, but I think you should always use at least some sort of light moisturizer afterwards.

I would always recomend using a moisturizer after any cleanser. Try their Vinosource Creme Sorbet lotion, so light weight and hydrating, it's amazing! I have combination skin and it works very well for me.

Yes, I would apply a moisturizer after cleansing your face. This product is not drying but is not moisturizing either.

I use this in the shower, usually in the AM, so I always apply moisturizer afterward. It is not a moisturizing cleanser. I would say you should always use moisturizer after b/c everyone agrees that your skin needs that more than anything else.
