So we all know by now that foaming cleansers are bad, right? Skincare guru Caroline Hirons said so and there for it must be true.. but is it as simple as saying no to foam? For a face wash addict like me.. no. For the past few weeks I’ve stuck to balms and been a good girl double toning and avoiding mineral oils like CH told me but the Gel Wash still sits on my bath side calling me.. My skin feels great after cleansing now but I loved that squeaky clean feeling.. residue and hydration is all well and good but sometimes. just sometimes I need that foam. So far I’ve been using this up on my back and chest (even that’s not great though) in an effort to get it out of sight and out of mind but I wondered, am I alone in feeling this way?
It’s been suggested that many are following advice blindly in recent months, throwing out their regular routines just because ‘some old woman’ (not my words) told them to and I suppose in a way we are but much the same as how 50 years ago they said smoking was good for you.. we know better now and are trying to make a change. Does it matter where it came from? I am no expert and have said on many occasions that my blog is basically a record of trial and error. I share my thoughts and opinions, hits and misses but I don’t stay home nights researching ingredients and unless I’m looking for a low cost dupe for something I’m not about to start now. I trust the wisdom of those with years of experience.
Anyway.. back to the foam, if you’ve recently made the switch, how are you finding it? It’a the same as anything else, change take time and adjustment.. maybe we need a support a group..
