La Prairie Review > Foam Cleanser / Purifying Cream Cleanser / Cellular Cleansing Water / Cellular Eye Make-up Remover

Published by Jasmine Imms

I started using La Prairie Foam Cleanser because my sister swore by it about 7 years ago. Back then, I couldn't really tell if it was really worth the hype as I didn't put on things that needed to be washed thoroughly off my face. However, I've been using more water-resistant products and religiously layering SPF products on my skin since I've been more conscious about skincare as I get older. That was when I begun to try different types of cleansers and I've been using La Prairie cleansers ever since. None of them are stripping, they leave my skin clean and comfortable.

Cellular Eye Makeup Remover

To be honest, I never really had to buy full-size cleansers as I keep getting free ones whenever I make a purchase at the La Prairie counter. However, I've been buying Cellular Eye Make-up Remover simply because the sales associates don't include samples of it in my La Prairie shopping bag :P. On top of that, I found it much better on my eyes than some other eye make-up removers that I've tried. It doesn't leave my eyes stinging or overly dry or oily, which is very important to me.

Cellular Cleansing Water for Eyes & Face

I enjoy using Cellular Cleansing Water for Eyes and Face especially during my PMS because of my naughty habit -_-. Yes, I typically skip washing my face for at least two random nights each month O_O. Those are the days when I cannot possibly bother doing my skincare routine. Instead, I would just lay down on the sofa and wipe off my face several times using Cellular Cleansing Water. It takes off make-up and dirt well, and most importantly, it doesn't dry out my skin unlike Bioderma. It also contains La Prairie's exclusive cellular complex, which I think helps my skin as I don't put anything on my face afterwards XD. If the weather's too cold or too dry, then I might use an eye cream and/or a few spritzes of face mist. That's all :3.

Technology

Cleansing

  • clear, refreshing plant-infused “water” formula removes make-up and impurities instantly without water
  • removes eye make-up, including mascara (but not waterproof make-up)

Hydrating

  • hyaluronic acid binds water to the skin, to enhance hydration
  • panthenol improves skin’s water-retaining capacity; also calms the - skin and conditions lashes

Soothing/Protective

  • white tea extract protects skin from free radical damage
  • summer lilac and thyme extracts protect against pollutants; also moisturise
  • anti-irritant calming complex of bisabolol, edelweiss and white lily bulb soothe and calm the skin

Purifying Cream Cleanser

La Prairie Purifying Cream Cleanser is something that I like to use when I want to give myself a bit of a facial massage during cleansing. In other words, I use it when I feel like committing myself to spending extra time in the bathroom >_<. I quite often do that after a long day outside when I have several layers of sunscreen and/or CC cushion on as Purifying Cream Cleanser dissolves make-up very well. I feel that it deep cleanses skin very gently even around the eye area. I would use face cloth with it if I want a neat finish along with a gentle exfoliation benefit. If not, then I would rinse it off in a rolling motion with warm water, which feels extra hydrating on my skin although it leaves a slight oily residue that isn't anywhere near what most cleansing oils give. I would say that it rather feels more comforting.

Technology

Cleansing

  • creamy cleansing agent liquefies when massaged on the skin with or without water, and removes makeup, impurities, and pollutants without pressure on the skin

Conditioning

  • avocado oil, rich in vitamins A and E, helps moisturize and nourish allantoin calms and soothes the skin

Foam Cleanser

La Prairie Foam Cleanser has a creamy dense consistency, which lathers beautifully even with a very small amount. It may seem expensive, but it lasts very long, so long that I've even been having trouble finishing my travel size Foam cleanser samples that I've been given :3. So I've been using it even for cleaning make-up brushes and sponges, and it has been working wonderfully without ruining them. The Foam Cleanser removes make-up and sunscreens effectively without drying out my skin. I don't use it around my eye area as it stings my eyes a little and I would never use foaming type cleansers around my eye area. So I normally combine the Cellular Eye Make-up Remover and Foam Cleanser together, which make my cleansing routine more efficient. This product is an absolute favourite of my family, including my grandmother :).

Technology

Cleansing / Refreshing

  • mild natural plant-based cleansing agents dissolve makeup, impurities, and pollutants without stripping the skin of essential moisture

Conditioning

  • licorice extract, green tea extract, gentian, aloe vera and apple extracts calm, soothe, purify, and help retain the skin’s moisture during cleansing

Where to Buy

Recommendations

If you are thinking of using one of those cleansers with other La Prairie products, then I you should check out my previous post on the products where I broke it down according to different skin types.

So if you are fairly new to the brand, the post will help you to better understand and build your own La Prairie skincare map :).

On top of that, here are some of my personal suggestions that are good to be paired with:

Serums / Boosters

Moisturisers with SPF

Moisturisers / Finishers without SPF

Intensive treatments
