It does not foam! From a "Foaming" gel I would expect bubbles, but ... I ought to use it twise, otherwise I do not feel the face clear and clean.
Will not repurchase

I LOVE THIS!!! It gives me baby-soft skin, and cleans my pores perfectly!

I seem to have a "neverending" tube of this foaming cleanser, and I use it every night. So it is good value for the price in my opinion.
I use this with my Clarisonic and it is my HG routine at the end of the day. As others have already mentioned if you are expected lots of suds you will be disappointed, but I prefer the lighty foaming texture of this. Skin is cleansed, soft and glowing but without a greasy feeling. Actually it also doesn't have that "squeaky" clean effect that I have experienced with some other foaming cleaners...so I feel the natural oils haven't been stripped away, yet my skin is still clean..does that make any sense? What more can I say, I'm a happy camper!
(EDIT - just noticed the review below mine that also mentioned the "squeaky clean" and the stripped of natural oils feelings.....sorry wasn't being a "copy-cat", I hadn't read it but had the same experience, so that's probably a good thing!)

This cleanser does foam if you foam it up properly but dont expect lots of bubbles. One of the reasons is the foaming agent is from oats and not nasty sodium laureth sulphate nasties which i prefer.
I have fairly normal skin and use the decleor milk cleanser at night with this one in the morning. In the past I have struggled with finding a face wash that doesnt make my face feel squeaky clean or have me straight away reach for a moisturiser as i think thats a sign of a bad cleanser as your natural oils have been stripped away.
There are a few that didnt make me feel like this and I was originally using the Nuxe honey facial wash which is good too when i came across this on special offer at strawberrynet and ended up getting 3 as with the discounts they were workingmout about £9 each. It was a risk but i thought hey if it does work i can alway sell it on eb.
But i think it is pretty good. My face feels clean but comfortable and i thik you get a pretty decent amount. Recently ive been using a muslin cloth to remove it, but thats optional. I wouldnt use it to remove makeup but thats with any wash as i prefer a milky cleanser for this.
Ive just started my second tube, using it everyday itslasted me well over a year because i dont think you need that much.
When i finally need to repurchase I will buy it probably will be when decleor release the supersize 400ml in Jan or Jul to get a good deal.

I'm a religious Decleor user because it truly has worked WONDERS on my skin but this isn't exactly something I'd rush to repurchase.
Just a bit of background on my skin. I'm in my early twenties, South Indian, with slightly oily, acne-prone skin. I've finally gotten my acne under control and now have the occasional hormonal spot to contend with instead of a face of angry, red break-outs. My current concerns are fading pigmentation from previous breakouts and refining pores.
The name 'Foaming Cleanser' is rather misleading, in my opinion. It does foam a little, but only in comparison to the Decleor milk cleansers, or cream cleansers. You certainly won't get a bubbly lather.
The good bits: You get plenty of product for your money, imho. 200ml for 21 GBP. Not Olay-value maybe, but better than some others. It's been one and a half years now, and I'm only halfway through the tube. You just need a tiny amount, and to spend some time working it into the face. It smells lovely, not a perfume or artificial "clean" scent, but something herbal and soothing.
The bad bits: I find it a bit drying. I usually use Decleor Cleansing Milk first then follow with this one for a "clean" feeling. It seems a bit too drying to use on it's own. It's not a bad cleanser in any way, but it's not something I'd repurchase. I'd rather use my Cleansing Milk, or the Eve Lom cleanser instead. It also doesn't remove makeup very well. I used to think it did, but then I started using Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oil, and the difference has been astounding. This simply does not clean off foundation and blush adequately, and I would get tiny under-skin bumps. Since then, I now only use this after cleansing oil, just for a fresh feeling.
Morning: Decleor Cleansing milk or Decleor Foaming Cleanser; Decleor Neroli oil; Murad Mattifier; sunblock of the day
Night: Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil; Decleor Foaming Cleanser; Decleor Ylang Ylang oil; Decleor Ylang Ylang Night Balm; Decleor Aroma Night cream; Phytomer anti-dark circle eye cream; Talika Lipocils or Rapidlash

This stuff is brilliant! Yes it dosent foam a lot which might put some people off but you dont need as much as you think you do either, so some people are using far too much product.
I have never came across a cleaner that cleans so well! After i splash it off with water and use some toner on a cotton pad it is spotless clean! Unbelievable!
Well worth the money. I have a 400ml Decleor Cleansing Milk to get through before i can buy a full size of this (i was using a free sample) but i will definetly purchase.

I am searching for a gentle, natural cleanser, and was excited to try this. The sales rep at Sephora was super generous w/tons of samples from Boscia and Decleor. The cleanser's smell is truly wonderful--light, clean and slightly floral, very nice for someone sensitive to smells. However, the product did not foam up, although that was okay, but you need a makeup remover also. It didn't seem to break me out, but today I noticed a slightly tacky feel to my skin after rinsing, so, for the price, the tacky leftover feeling, and the fact that you need a separate makeup remover, I would not recommend this product to buy, but if you happen to get a sample, go ahead and experience. As another reviewer mentioned, this would probably be better suited as a morning face wash rather than night time.

I was all excited about getting this cleanser after having had a decleor facial and loving it. However, this foaming cleanser really was a total let down. It did smell beautiful however but it just did not foam up for me!!! And because it didn't foam well, it didn't feel like you were cleansing your skin thoroughly. I'd glad to have at least tried it, because I like other decleor products, just this one was disapointing. Will not be repurchasing.

I recently purchased this at Sephora. To start, I am an oily and sensitive-skinned PPP. Nevertheless, the very helpful and knowledgeable SA informed me that this product would be gentle on my skin and yet clean thoroughly. It cost $33.00 USD. I brought it home and when I used to cleanse my face that night, I noticed that it took a lot of product to foam up in my hands. Because this stuff is pricey, I was a bit put off due to the volume of product needed. I am not sure if a small amount that does not foam up would clean my face as well but I guess I can try. I wish I read the reviews here first. Overall, this product is a bit difficult to work with and misleading because unlike the product name and its implied claim, it does NOT foam. UPDATE on 3-11-07: This product is drying out my skin and causing little pimples to form on my chin. I am not using this anymore. I gave it a chance but it sucks and my skin is unhappy.

This cleanser feels like putting shampoo on your face... I bought this cleanser when it was new on the market, expecting it to be suitable as a summer cleanser for my dry skin, which is more normal to dry in the summer. But I was wrong. First, this cleanser is very runny, almost like shampoo, and it takes a lot for it to lather up, unlike foaming cleansers from other brands. In addition, it left my face feeling dry and tight. I also didn't care much for the artificial, raspberry candy kind of smell. I also would have preferred a flipcap instead of the screwtop cap.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
This cleanser is very funny,why?
first-it is not foaming cleanser,it is like a milk,you have to use a lot of water to make foam.
second-the package is not comfortable to use
third-I just can't believe how clean my face is after using it!
When I first used it I thought I have to bring it back.This should be foaming and is not.Is like cleansing milk-even my friend,who was sleeping at my house recently,used it once.When she left the bathroom she said-I don't like your cleansing milk-she was using it with cotton pad~:)
But what makes it good for me is that when I used this I just felt like my face is still dirty,but when I used the toner after that,the cotton pad was just very clean-this foaming cleanser really removed my make up and even my mascara.
Try a sample before you buy it.

While I really enjoy its soft floral scent, yes, the texture is too watery and it doesn't clean make up well. I heard it is meant to be used AFTER cleansing milk, then toner. It does make a sufficient morning cleanser but I wouldn't repurchase as I like to keep my skincare routine to minimum.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Foaming???What foam? It is not foaming at all and like the other reviewers said the packaging is not convenient at all. But it smells heavenly and doesn't dry out my skin. I usually remove my makeup with clinique take the day off makeup remover so I can't say too much about the cleaning property of it. So far when I check the cotton after toner it comes out pretty clean. I will def. buy it again bec. it smells so good and makes my skin soft. If you are not a decleor fan don't buy it bec. there are much better ones out there!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Red Eyes: Green
I wasn't impressed with this at all. Like the previous reviewer said the tube is really impractical. It doesn't foam at all unless you use loads which then makes it an expensive and not very effective cleasner. I like all purpose products but couldn't use this on my eyes. No matter how many times I rinsed afterwards my face seemed to have a fine sticky film left on it. This did go after a while but didn't make cleasning a pleasant experience. Wouldn't buy again.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
First of all it is not foaming at all! I kind of guessed that because it doesn't have the harmful and drying chemicals which makes the cleansers foamy. I gave it 3 lippies because after cleaning my face I kind of felt weird. Also the package is sooooo not user friendly. I open the tube, put cleanser on my palm. And try to close the cap because when I put in on the counter it spills (and it is an expensive cleanser so I hate to see it is wasted). While trying to close the cap the cleanser in my palm starts to drip! So it is not user friendly at all! The smell is nice (what you would expect from decleor). But there are much better ones on the market with a better price.

This has a really gorgeous smell, I have recently changed to this cleanser from a cream cleanser so initial impressions are good, I have combination skin and this seemed to make my skin really clean.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
Smells lovely but on the whole an ineffective cleanser on my combo/oily skin. Didn't remove all surface oil/makeup etc and left a film, which is fine if you like that, but I prefer a cleaner finish. It just doesn't do anything to warrant its price. I like other Decleor products, but I will give this one a miss in the future.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
While I love other products by Decleor, this "foaming" cleanser was disappointing. I use quotation marks since the product barely foamed at all, and would be best if you were having a no makeup day. It didn't remove my regular mascara, nor all of my stick foundation, so if you're looking for that squeaky clean feeling, this isn't the right cleanser. I had to use another one to feel as if I had removed all of my makeup.
With that, it smells pleasant, and I suppose would be ok (again) if you're a no-to-minimal makeup kind of gal. Save your money as there are better products out there.

i bought a travel kit with many decleor products in it. at first, i was a little turned off because 1) it doesn't foam much...i am used to lather 2) it doesn't leave your skin with the almost squeaky clean feeling that i am used to with my usual cleansers. well i swallowed my words when after a couple of weeks, my skin was looking more clear and feeling buttery soft in conjunction with the rest of the products. it does remove all makeup, and it does get the dirt out of your pores. it also leaves a slight film on your skin while rinsing, but nothing gross...just a texture that you might have to get used to. i understand that this cleanser is not for everyone, and i didn't even think that it would be an item that i would consider repurchasing. but i LOVE this product and the whole line. i am so glad that i discovered decleor

I needed a new facial cleanser because my bottle of Decleor Cleansing Gel and my little travel-size pump bottle of Yonka Nettoyant Gel had nearly been exhausted and the other cleansers that I had stashed away to try at a later date are still in storage as I'm still living in the hotel while my house is being remodeled -- although I'm happy to report that it looks like only another 10 days before I can move back in and finally get a decent night's sleep in my own bed.
So I decided to exchange my Lash Gloss and the $15 Sephora "Go-Curl Professional Lash Curler" toward the cost of a new facial cleanser since I had found that the $3 version by Luxor (maker's of the infamous imposter Diamancel foot file) worked as well as, if not better than, the Sephora lash curler, and besides: I also have my ModelCo Lash Wand heated curler, so 3 separate lash curlers could be construed as product/tool overkill.
After careful consideration, I decided I wanted to try Decleor's Foaming Cleanser ($32USD for 8-oz). It comes in one of those squeeze tubes that stands on its end and has a screw-off top. I was quick to learn that if one doesn't put the top on immediately after dispensing the product into one's wet palm, rather than just laying the tube on the counter at an upward angle while proceeding to cleanse one's face, one will lose quite a bit of foaming cleanser as it oozes from the uncovered tip even if the bottle is inverted against gravity so presumably the contents must be under pressure or something.
When I was a little kid, my mom used to buy this stuff called "Phisoderm" for my 18-year old brother to use to wash his face that was recommended by a dermatologist because it allegedly helped fight against acne and breakouts (remember, this was circa 1977-78, so the skincare choices back then were pretty much limited). Although I'd been forbidden to use it because it was pretty expensive, even though it could be purchased over-the-counter, sometimes I would sneak a bit of Phisoderm and use it to cleanse my face whenever I thought I could get away with it without being caught. All I actually remember about Phisoderm was how nasty it tasted. I don't know how it happened because I don't normally get soap in my mouth when I wash my face, but every damn time I tried the Phisoderm I somehow invariably ended up with a mouthful of it and the stuff tasted just awful. I can still remember the phantom taste of it after all these years.
Why am I telling you this? Because 25 years later, I had a flashback to my horrible Phisoderm moments when I used the Decleor Foaming Cleanser for the first time because, again, I somehow got the stuff in my mouth and nearly gagged from the taste. And, just like the Phisoderm, the taste of the Decleor stays on your tongue and imbedded in your taste buds long after you've spat and scrubbed and swished with minty mouthwash in a vain attempt to rid your mouth of the haunting aftertaste.
So that was my first impression of the Decleor Foaming Cleanser, which seemed to herald an inauspicious start. My next impression was that "Foaming Cleanser" is a complete misnomer because the stuff doesn't foam at all. I don't think I could even bring myself to go as far as to claim that it even could be termed a "Frothing Cleanser"! The obviously creative writers that developed the product description on the back of the tube took quite a few artistic liberties when deciding to declare this as a mousse-like consistency because I found it to be more of a very runny lotion-like texture.
So far, it doesn't seem to bode well for my new skincare acquistion, but after spitting out the mouthful that somehow found its way inside my closed lips and mouth, I dutifully began massaging this foam-less cleanser onto my face for about 45 seconds and even found enough intestinal fortitude to apply it to my closed eyes to see if it would remove my MAC Fluidline eyeliner and the (daytime) lash serum that I have been using in lieu of a clear mascara and was pleasantly surprised when my eyes didn't immediately begin burning and/or tearing up.
I then rinsed my face with tepid water, patted dry, then moistened a cotton pad with my trusty “Dr. Holland’s ACV Super Toner” in an effort to determine exactly how clean this stuff actually got my face (normally after removing my makeup, I use my homemade DHCC before applying toner) and was actually shocked to find that upon examining the used cotton pad after swiping it over my face that the cotton pad wasn't covered with the telltale evidence of makeup residue that didn't quite get removed during cleansing.
Futhermore, my face did not feel all dry and tight as is sometimes the case when one uses a cleanser that is too harsh. I used it again this morning, mixed with a dash of Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant and a pinch of green French clay, and it performed in a similar manner -- although once again, some of it managed to sneak past my tightly clenched lips and invade my taste buds. I swear, I can't figure out how this is happening!
Anyway, to recap: the Decleor Foaming Cleanser effectively cleansed my face and removed my eye makeup (although, granted, I wasn't wearing anything tough to remove like waterproof mascara), yet didn't cause any dryness or irritation to my sometimes fickle and sensitive, but oily, skin. I guess if I can bring myself to disregard the fact that it really doesn't do what its name implies, namely FOAM up, and am able to find a way to avoid getting the damn stuff in my mouth everytime I use it (perhaps duct tape might work??) I reckon I'll decide to keep it, although -- as always -- I reserve the right to change my mind at any time and return it to Sephora to exchange for whatever else my little greedy heart seizes upon and it certainly won't stop me from exploring other cleansers to try out....
