Erborian. A totally underrated brand. The Erborian Double Mousse Aux 7 Herbs Gentle Cleansing Foam ($28.00) is in the spotlight in this post and I can assure you it makes me feel as good about the brand as their BB sleeping mask. The cleansing foam smells so good — so fresh and so clean; like cucumbers and mint; (like a delicious Tom Collins — and I don’t mess with gin like that).
My skin type
Oily, acne prone skin with large pores on my cheeks. I like my skin to feel squeaky clean after cleansing.
What it’s supposed to do
It’s a foaming cleanser that’s supposed to remove earthly residues. One and a half pumps is all I need to clean my entire face.

How I use it
Nine times out of ten, I double cleanse. My skin is oily and I wear full coverage foundation 85+% of the time. I use this cleanser after my first cleanser which is usually an oil cleanser. On its own, it’s great for a morning cleanser or if you haven’t worn any makeup.
How long I used it
This was a gift from the girls over at beautyandthecat. They hauled it all the way back from Paris for me last year. I’ve been using it as a primary second cleanser for months. I have a lot of cleansers, but I’m always reaching for this one.
No breakouts, no dryness or weird stuff happening to my skin. If you don’t oil cleanse and use makeup remover wipes or makeup remover to remove your makeup, this should take away everything else left over. My face is left clean and smooth after use. This cleanser has lasted me a long time and I would not hesitate to repurchase.
