I use the Clarifying Cleansing Foam for about a month now. My skin feels very clean after usage however it also feels a bit dry and sometimes itchy. Can I try the WASO gentle cleanser with honey extract instead? I have very sensitive skin.

Asked by: Ani72
Hello. Yes, you can try the Waso Quick Gentle Cleanser. However, for dry skin, we would recommend our Extra Rich Cleansing Milk.

Clarifying Cleansing Foam (for all skin types) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my skin. I don’t skip a day of use with this cleanser. It’s perfect for my skin and leaves my skin feeling clean without dryness.
Date published: 2018-12-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I have tried a million cleansers and this is absolutely the most silky, thorough but non drying one out there. Just a little goes a long way, foams up beautifully and feels so luxirious. My skin feels clean and renewed but never tight, noticed it’s been clearer and pores tighter. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I've been using Shiseido for over 20 years now and this is the best cleanser I've had. Within 3 days I saw the difference on my skin and a few dark spots that I had are less visible. I love it!
