I'm using Benefiance cleansign foam as a part of my daily routine, together with Benefiance Protective emulsion N. I switched to Shisido Benefiance after realizing my skin can no longer be called young (I'm 24) and needs some extra care, and this cleanser is certainly suitable for this purpose.
Packaging: Product comes in 30ml the tube and can be stored upside down as the top is flat. It's also convenient as cleanser is of paste consistency. A smaller tubes can be purchased as a part of set or giftbox, currently I have a 15ml tube and as my bathroom cupboard is overflowing with cosmetics, I do prefer a smaller packaging.
Cleaning: Surprisingly, you only need very little of the cleanser - about a pea size, to create rich creamy lather. It has a pleasant, but very mild scent and washes off easily. Firstly I was a little worried about its description of being creamy - my previous experience with creamy cleansers/make up removers was that it used to leave a residue which I didn't like for morning cleansing when I needed to put make up on. However, Benefiance doesn't leave any residue, just a feeling of soft, clean and hydrated skin.
Hydration: When you squeeze the "paste" from the tube, you can see small granules, which I firstly considered to be peeling granules. These are actually granules of Hyaluronic acid - they dissolve quickly and apparently this and extract of Chlorella plant are what makes your skin perfectly hydrated for the whole day.
Price: Well, here is the downside. For a cleanser it's not what I call affordable - up to £35 for 30ml tube (depending on store) is quite much, considering market is full of skincare which may give simmilar result for much better price. However, quite often I find Benefiance range on sale, and for sale price a bit of luxury is definitely worth it.
