Weleda Week: Weleda Gentle Cleansing Foam

(gift/affiliate link) Designed for normal and combination skin types, my dry-ish complexion isn't strictly the target audience for the Weleda Gentle Cleansing Foam but I have been enjoying it nonetheless.
The natural face wash features mild plant-derived cleansers including Coco-Glucoside (a surfactant made from coconut and fruit sugars) and contains Marshmallow Root and organic Witch Hazel extract to soothe, moisturise and refine the skin.

I want to clarify that this isn't a foaming cleanser, it's a cleansing foam - foaming cleansers are known for drying and stripping the skin as they lather up but this one is simply liquid that comes in a pump that creates a fluffy ball of foam as it's dispensed. As for drying the skin, it doesn't do that either; I've not experienced any tightness or discomfort whatsoever, just a pleasantly clean feeling.

To use, you just give the bottle a pump or two to release the foam, massage it onto a damp face then rinse off with warm water. There is an uplifting and sort of invigorating scent to the cleanser thanks to a special blend of essential oils, so I think it's particularly good for a morning cleanse to wake you up a bit and give you an aromatherapeutic boost before you start the day.
The cleansing foam rinses away very easily and leaves behind no detectable residue so it's a good option if you like to get things done in a hurry! I haven't used it to take off makeup but a friend has and she commented that it did the job well so that's worth noting too.
Overall, after using the cleansing foam a good few times myself and having my boyfriend, sister and friends use it too (we've had a few visitors lately!), I'd say that it's a good shout for pretty much everyone really.
Weleda Gentle Cleansing Foam is £15.95 for 100ml at Look Fantastic.
