Hello, beauties! This is the product I was most eager to review of all L’Occitane’s line that I tried out! 🙂 Today I’d like to introduce to you their super-efficient Precious cleansing foam! I was super-content with it. Interested to read some more info? 😀

I must say that this is the product that surprised me the most from all the L’Occitane products I tried! It’s super efficient, I just can’t emphasise this enough. I normally used one dosage for my morning cleansing routine and up to two-three for my evening routine (for MU cleansing; dosage depends on how heavy my MU was that day). I didn’t clean my eye MU with this foam though (I always use almond oil for this).
As I said, I was thrilled about this foam’s effeciency! Normally when I cleansed my face (with various cleansers) there was always MU residue staying on my face wiping cloth; with this foam, none! It just blew my mind, really. I was using this foam in combination with Sephora’s face disc – I think it was a great combo! At the promotional skin care the beautician applied this foam with a cotton pad, which is another way of using it. Or you could apply with just your fingers, nothing wrong with that either.
If I didn’t continue right away with moisturizing and toning, my skin felt really dried out after using this cleanser though! I guess you can’t get efficiency and gentleness in one package, as far as cleansing goes, ha? 😉 If you’ll use this foam on a slightly damaged skin (from cleaning the skin impurities, for example), it may give you a stinging sensation right on the damaged spot.
It has a very gentle scent, and it foams really well. It feels good on the skin while cleansing – gentle, it doesn’t irritate the skin.
This product comes in a bottle with a practical dispenser, activated by pushing on it. You can dose the dispensing of the foam very well. What I love the most about this foam is that it’s eco-friendly, as far as packaging goes! There’s a refill available, if you decide to repurchase – well done, L’Occitane! The packaging with a dispenser is also as antibacterial formed as it could be – it allows us to get out the product without the risk of infecting the remaining with bacteria and germs.
A word or two about ingredients
The ingredients are nothing special actually, a hefty pack of solvents and surfactants on the first few places on the ingredient list (it’s a cleanser of course). But the thing I especially like about this foam is that L’Occitane packed a plant extract mix quickly behind those (next few places on the ingredient list!):
- everlasting flower water for conditioning,
- chamomile extract for fragrancing the product – and conditioning the skin,
- yellow gentian root extract for it’s antiinflammatory properties,
- raspberry fruit extract and strawberry fruit juice for conditioning the skin,
- citrus unshiu peel extract to help even out the skin tone,
- parsley extract for skin conditioning and
- grapefruit fruit extract as a natural source of vitamin C.
I really like this ingredients list actually! 🙂 I can see that as the products cleanses very efficiently, it also gives the skin very important ingredients in the meantime too.
I’m not too worried about the possible “non-safe” substances (as the natural oriented users like to see them, and here’s one “PEG” for example!), because it’s a product that gets washed off your face after cleansing it.
All in all?
I really liked this cleansing foam, and am actually thinking of repurchasing it! 🙂 It’s efficient, gentle as a cleanser can be, and did I mentioned efficient already? 😉
