REVIEW: It's Skin Clinical Solution Pore Cleansing Foam

Today, I'm going to be reviewing the Clinical Solution Pore Cleansing Foam by It's Skin, courtesy of Chuusi.ca




WHAT'S THE CLINICAL SOLUTION PORE CLEANSING FOAM?


The Pore Cleansing Foam cleanses the face thoroughly leaving the skin fresh and smooth. This cleanser removes excess sebum, tightens pores, and restores a natural moisture balance to the skin. 


Containing amino acid-based surfactants makes the skin soft and clay minerals purifies and refreshes pores with tiny bubbles.

REVIEW


Packaging and Design
The packaging and design of this bottle is very simplistic, but I find it a bit bland and boring. I like my packaging to be either beautiful and luxurious, or just a cuteness overload (packaging means a lot to me LOL). This packaging doesn't have much of anything and is just a solid colored bottle with words on it. It comes in a pale mint squeeze-tube bottle that's easy to hold. The packaging feels relatively flimsy, but that's not necessarily a bad thing since it's easy to squeeze. It also comes with a convenient flip-top cap.



Ease of Use
The Clinical Solution Pore Cleansing Foam is super easy to use. It comes with a flip-top cap that can be easily opened and shut. The bottle itself is a squeeze tube which is pretty flimsy and is a piece of cake to squeeze. To dispense, you just squeeze a small amount of product (I use a dime-sized amount) onto the palm of you hands and massage it onto your face. The cleanser will create a gentle foam as you work it throughout your face leaving your skin feeling clean and refreshed!

Texture and Scent
The very first thing I noticed about this cleanser is the scent. The scent is also my favorite thing about this cleanser because it smells so freaking clean and fresh. It has a very refreshing citrusy/lemon scent, and I'm a huge fan of citrus scents! If you are too, then you will absolutely love this cleanser.

Now texture-wise, this is one of the most gentlest foam cleansers I have ever come across. The Clinical Solution Pore Cleansing Foam has a very light off-white fluffy mousse/cream texture that melts on contact with your skin. It creates a very gentle lather on the skin that doesn't irritate at all!



Effectiveness
After using this extremely lightweight and gentle foam cleanser, my face felt very clean, incredibly soft, and refreshed. My face was left feeling slightly tight (not the bad unbearable tight, but the good clean kind) and the cleanser didn't strip me of my natural oils or dry out my skin. Unfortunately, this cleanser didn't work in controlling my excess sebum. I have normal skin with a bit of excess sebum production on my nose and I have not noticed a difference in the amount of oil production. This foam cleanser is geared towards those with excess sebum and oily skin, so maybe it'll be more effective for those with that skin type. 

Even though it didn't work in controlling my excess sebum, it does a decent job at cleaning my skin and getting rid of the dirt and grime. 



PROS

Easy to use
Amazing citrusy/lemon scent
Lightweight creamy mousse texture = super gentle!
Leaves face clean and refreshed
Doesn't leave skin too tight or dry



CONS

I did NOT notice a reduction in excess sebum



RATING: 3/5 

Overall, The Pore Cleansing Foam does a decent job at cleansing the face and removing impurities, however it didn't do much in minimizing my excess sebum production. I enjoy using this cleanser as a regular everyday cleanser, but not one that helps with oil production. 


The Clinical Solution Pore Cleansing Foam is perfect for you if you're looking for an extremely gentle foam cleanser that won't strip you of your natural oils or leave your face feeling too dry or tight.

The It's Skin Clinical Solution Pore Cleansing Foam (150ml) retails for $22 and is available at HERE!

    1. Hi Kieu! :D So nice to hear from you!

      My favorite cleansers right now is the Banila Co Clean It Zero (in Purity) as my first step oil cleanser to remove my makeup and then I follow up with the Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanaser from Cosrx! I also like to use the Son & Park Beauty Water after I cleanse my face as a final step in cleansing. It removes all of the dirt or makeup you may have missed when washing your face and also doubles as a gentle hydrating toner too! :D
