The Foamy Rich Mousse is probably one of the popular products of Ettusais, and I’m not surprised at its fame after I included it in my daily regime. This 5-in-1 cleanser is a great multi-tasker that performs the following functions:

  • Deep cleansing: It cleanses your pores so grime and dirt can’t clog them
  • Makeup removal: Use it alone to remove makeup without the need for double cleansing
  • Facial mask: Enriched with beauty goodness, leave it on for a while to double up as a mask
  • Massage: It is a massage cream that helps eliminate the appearance of dull complexion
  • Moisturising effect: Fortified with hyaluronic acid, glycerine and collagen, it helps to make skin more supple and moisturised

Does Ettusais Foamy Rich Mousse work?

The foam that was dispensed is extremely fine yet very thick, reminding me of whipped cream. Applying it makes me feel like I’m patting a cushion onto my skin so it’s super comfortable. A little also go a long way – the foam easily covers my entire face. It has a light citrus scent that smells very refreshing.

Massaging it gently, I like to get the foam around parts of my face where more makeup is applied (my eyes and cheeks) and areas where I’m more prone to clogged pores (my nose and chin). The foam makes the massage feel really good so I found myself massaging slightly longer than I usually would.

I am impressed that it was able to remove my waterproof mascara thoroughly. I have a love-hate relationship with my waterproof mascara because of how tough it can be to get rid of it at the end of the day, even if I use a dedicated eye makeup remover. Now that Ettusais Foamy Rich Mousse can cleanse it off so easily, I guess I won’t hesitate using my favourite mascara in the future.

Take note, though, when the mousse gets into the eyes, it can feel quite irritating, so be really careful when you’re massaging it around the eye area to remove eye makeup. At the same time, while the mousse got rid of the mascara from the lashes, pigment tend to get transferred to my lower eyelid and I had to use a cotton swab to clean it up after I rinse off. These are just minor issues, compared to how effectively it cleansed off my makeup so I think I can live with them.

Bonus point goes to the ability to omit the cleansing step after makeup removal. I love how my skin feels cleansed, hydrated and smooth after using it, and that I can save some time from not cleansing – hey, it’s especially important when you’re all knocked out after a long day and simply want to hit the sack as soon as you can!

More good news: The new Ettusais Foamy Rich Mousse now comes with 25% more foam (225g)! It retails at S$35, available at all Ettusais counters.
