I picked up this tube of cleansing foam for less than ¥300. Granted, it was on offer (and I’ve never seen it at that price since) but even at the full retail price of ¥550, it’s still quite the bargain.
I’m not sure what to say about Cow Brand Mutenka Moisturising Facial Foam other than the fact it works to a really foamy lather that leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean but without that squeakiness that you sometimes get with foaming face washes. It’s very straightforward without any frills and no added perfume. If you just want to get the job done and don’t want to wash a load of cash the drain then this is an excellent budget buy.
There’re some absolutely beautiful cleansing foams with lots of added bells and whistles that make the task of washing your face a treat — this is not one of them. But if you’re trying to pinch pennies, I can tell you that Cow Brand Mutenka’s foam does the job very nicely. It doesn’t sting my eyes, and lather is gentle, un-fragranced, and non-stripping.
You can find it at Amazon Japan HERE — it’s ¥784 for 2 tubes (international shipping available via AmazonGlobal).
