Who doesn’t love a free sample? After buying a few items over at CHANEL before Christmas, I finally got a chance to try out the La Mousse Anti-Pollution Cream to Foam Cleanser (full size £32) sample I received with my goodies. It came in a cute CHANEL drawstring bag, too!
It is said to remove pollutants, dust, sweat, excess sebum and traces of make-up with its rich cream texture that turns into a light foam. Its unique mix of two marine blends – blue micro-algae and marine salicornia extract – help to protect skin cells, moisturise and strengthen the skin barrier.
At first feel it is, indeed, creamy. The fragrance isn’t too strong either, unlike the Le Gommage Anti-Pollution Exfoliating Gel (£37). After contact with water it turns into a foam that goes a long way for a small amount, so it is possible the cleanser will last for a decent amount of time.
Once rinsed off, my face felt refreshed and clean. It would make a great pre-cleanse to a second cleanse, or as a gentle cleanse in the morning. Off to purchase the full product…
