Once upon a time, I always believed that cleansers will work wonders on my skin just as advertised. However, I gradually found that cleanser is something that will only stay on my face for a few seconds and I should not expect too much. Hence, from my perspective, a cleanser that can not only remove dirt and dead cells but leave my skin hydrated and soft is a great choice. I know that different skin type will need different levels of clean and moisturizing. These Korean cosmetic companies know much better than me. So they developed tons of cleansers to cater your needs. As foam cleanser is the most common form of facial cleanser, so I think it would be a great idea to talk about Korean cleansers start from here. I pick up the best Korean foam cleansers for each skin type and hope it would be helpful.
