Yes, the Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse is an ultra-gentle, but extremely effective foaming cleanser for removing excess grease, impurities and make-up. When used alone, it is effective enough to remove most make-up. For eye make-up such as waterproof mascara, we would recommend that you use a separate eye make-up remover specially formulated for the eye-area.

If you wish to remove make-up with Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse, we recommend that you use 2 to 4 pumps more than the usual amount, depending on how heavy your make-up is. Massage in upward-outward motions for at least a minute, ensuring all skin area is covered. Rinse off thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel.

If you use heavier make-up, we would recommend using Pre-Wash Cleansing Oil to remove your make-up, followed by Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse.

The foam of Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse is naturally derived from amino acids. Compared to strong surfactants like sodium lauryl sulfates, and soap-based cleansers, our natural amino acid foam is less foamy. The stronger/harsher the surfactants, the richer the foam. However, rich foams also mean more drying as they tend to strip the skin of its natural lipid barrier.

However, even though the foam of Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse disappears faster, it does not compromise on its cleansing power. What happens is this foam penetrates into your skin and uses nano-technologies to dissolve away make-up, pollutants and excess grease for a thorough yet skin caring cleanse.

What you need to do is to continue massaging your face for about 90 seconds and then rinse off thoroughly with warm water. You will notice that your skin is perfectly cleansed minus the dry, tight sensation or uncomfortable residue.

Another thing that you will notice is that the foam of Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse will not disappear as fast when you wash your face in the morning. This is because your skin tend to have less dirt/grime and no make-up while you are sleeping so the ‘chemical reaction’ of our foam is not as dramatic compared to after a long day.

Hence, you may want to accordingly adjust the amount of Amino Acid Cleansing Mousse which you pump out. For example, just one pump will suffice for your morning beauty routine and two to four pumps for your end-of-the-day beauty routine.

Dampen skin; pump the dispenser once or twice to dispense the cleanser onto your palm. Massage onto your face in upward-outward circular motions. Make sure you cover every part of your face. When massaging over the eye area, please ensure that the cleanser does not enter your eyes. Rinse off thoroughly. Pat dry with a clean towel.
