Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam Review



Estee Lauder is without a doubt of the most well known luxury skincare and makeup brands on the market, and has been a huge influence in the industry as a whole. Products like the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam have lead the way for soft, gentle, barely there foaming cleansers that provide just as through a cleanse as you would expect from more aggressive facial washes. Unlike these more aggressive facial washes though, this foam cleanses while simultaneously respecting the skin’s delicate moisture barrier and reinforcing the skin’s natural protective processes to create healthier looking and feeling skin. The formula behind this product contains ingredients which work to remove makeup and impurities as well as damage due to environmental factors like pollution. And even then, this product rinses cleanly from the skin, leaving behind no odd or uncomfortable residue or dry, tight feeling. Instead, your skin is left feeling prepped and balanced, ready to absorb the rest of the active ingredients within your skincare routine.
