Foam cleansers have shot up in interest on TikTok recently. Spate points to significant month-over-month growth for foam and bubble cleansers. Foam is not only fun, it has other advantages as well. It’s especially great for those with acne-prone or oily skin, as oil cleansers could clog pores. Additionally, a lot goes a long way with foam formulas. From brand-new launches to classic standbys, these are the best foam cleansers.
Leave it to Augustinus Bader to create the most luxe foaming cleanser on the market. This purifying daily cleanser became an instant mainstay in my skin-care routine once I tried it. It does it all—99 percent agree pores are de-congested, and skin is cleared, and 97 percent agree skin looks brighter and it helps with oil control.
