Kiyoko's Notes

Ultra-soft water-based foam cleanser specially designed for dry and sensitive skin types. 

Designed specifically for dry, sensitive skin, the Curél Foaming Facial Wash thoroughly cleanses impurities ever-so-gently, leaving skin soft and supple while protecting the natural ceramides from being washed off the skin.

The soft foaming facial wash is the second step of the Japanese ritual called Double Cleansing and ideally it is used in combination with Curél Makeup Cleansing Gel. Some key benefits include:

How to use

  1. Dispense 2 pumps of Curél Foaming Facial Wash into your palm. Apply the foam onto wet skin.
  2. Gently pat dry.
  3. When you don‘t need to remove any makeup (i.e. in the morning), use the Foaming Facial Wash on its own.

What is Double Cleansing?

It is particularly important for dry, sensitive skin to clean thoroughly and yet gently. Curél cleansers have been developed to do just that – cleanse while preserving the skin´s ceramides and therefore the skin's protective barrier. Clean skin will allow moisturizers to work more efficiently.

Double cleansing is a Japanese two-step cleansing method using two different types of cleansers, one after the other.

The first oil-based cleanser (Curél Makeup Cleansing Gel) dissolves makeup and sebum, while the second water-based cleanser (Curél Foaming Facial Wash) washes away anything that’s left over.

Really liked this one I’ll buy again

Great for sensitive skin!

I bought this as Kiyoko on Tiktok recommended it if you had dry skin. I wasn't sure if i'd like it but reserved judgement until i had tried it and man! it left my skin feeling clean without that horrible stripped feeling. if anything my skin has felt better after using this than a lot of other "gentle" skin cleansers i've used in the past. i'm hooked, I will be repurchasing this again and again i love it so much. It's a must if you have sensitive, dry skin. THANK YOU KIYOKO!

Foaming Surprise from Japan

Another great product from Japan. Prior to use, I halted my skin regimen. I needed to confirm my results weren't directly affected by use of my standard facial products.
First, I love the pump with the easily removable neck-cap which prevents waste. I applied the cleanser per instructions, onto damp skin. Curél states to use 2 full pumps. Actually it's contingent upon facial width & condition of skin. I only needed 1.5 pumps. The cleanser foams up quite well with good tackiness. I applied clockwise & counterclockwise to face for 3 to 5 minutes (your discretion). Once rinsed, I noticed my skin was thoroughly cleaned. It wasn't abrasive to my sensitive, dry skin. No adverse reactions. My skin felt taut; however, it felt different to touch. Very soft. My only advice is for Curél to add a moisturizing toner to alleviate tightness. I'll use this product again, but only during summer months. I think it would be too drying during winter unless a toner is applied following facial wash.


Firstly the design is brilliant because the pump prevents using excessive amounts. I can only describe this foaming cleanser as beautiful! Yes because it beautifully glides on, creating a lather and deep cleanse on my face.
It’s brilliant for dry skin because it does not give that tight feeling on your skin after washing. I like using this after the make up cleansing wash for the final touches. I definitely think it made my skin look more radiant after the FIRST use! I’m converted and will be switching from my current brand to this. It’s cheaper than my current brand too. I’m going to also purchase the lotion to apply afterwards. It’s just a clean product, no nasties in the ingredients so I feel confident applying it and feel like I’ve fed my skin.

Good for dry flaky skin

I had skin flaking off like snow. Prone to flare ups so reluctant to buy full size products. I bought the trial package which included makeup remover, serum, wash, & moisturizer. After 3 days my skin was normal with no flaking. I do agree with viewer who had breakouts. This product is not for oily skin....I think I would have had breakouts but after first use I decided to only use on dry forehead, temples, cheeks and upper lip. I returned to using Purpose Cleaner on chin, tip of nose, in between eyebrows...all prone to pimples. Same with moisturizers...use Clinique Hydrating jelly on chin, tip of nose and between eyebrows. Sort of a pain but with combination skin I think it's hard to address all issues with one product. I am just happy that I developed a solution to all.
