Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam

Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam

Today’s post is on one of my skincare holy grail products that I encountered this year. I’ve been using Cetaphil Skin Cleanser for the longest time but Sebamed Cleansing Foam is what I swear by now! Read on to know what changed my mind and why I think this is the best cleanser for people facing acne and/or clogged pores.

Price: INR 580 for 200 ml
During the sale, you can find it for INR 520. I got mine from Nykaa.

The cleanser is also available in a 50ml bottle that retails for INR 322 which is perfect if you want to try it out and see how it works with your skin.

I researched about the brand and its animal testing policies but I’m not able to come to a conclusion whether it’s cruelty-free or not.
However, they do have a Sebamed China website.

Edit: Sebamed is not cruelty-free


It comes in a white, opaque bottle with pump dispenser. The container is very sturdy and high quality, you can feel that luxury by holding it in your hands. Since the bottle is opaque, you can’t actually see the quantity left.

The very convenient pump dispenses the product properly and the well- built bottle makes it travel-friendly.

Texture & Smell

This is a foaming cleanser that doesn’t lather at all on massaging. It doesn’t have added fragrance which is a big plus because it’s extremely difficult to bear those artificial scents.
Allegedly, fragrance is the #1 irritant as claimed by FDA.

No smell no fuzz just a standard skin cleanser that does its job well.

How Does It Work?

I started using it in September and have faced no problems with this cleanser yet. It’s a crucial part of my skincare routine and I use it twice a day – morning and evening. Post rinsing, it leaves my face squeezy clean and as soft as a baby’s bum. It feels like I’ve just applied moisturizer on my face.

It balances the pH of the skin (Skin’s pH is generally between 4.5-5.5)

The formula is extremely gentle and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin in any way. This cleanser is going to last you a good number of months and is something I’d recommend to everyone with combination and oily skin type.

It’s unlike any drugstore cleanser that I’ve tried! Except for winters, you (Talking to my oily-skin team) can use this alone and directly apply SPF; no toner or moisturizer is needed. Why? Because it already balances skin’s pH and doesn’t dry it out.

Works really well on mild acne, blackheads and whiteheads. After every wash, my skin looks very clean and not at all bumpy. In my opinion, By Wishtrend Acid-duo cleanser works better when it comes to problematic skin due to the presence of BHA (anti-bacterial) and PHA (gentle exfoliant that removes dead skin cells). And it’s also cruelty-free unlike Sebamed.

It’s not very effective in removing makeup, you have to double cleanse!


I need one pump for my face, massage it lightly after splashing water on my face, keep it on for 3 minutes and rinse off.


If you’re someone facing acne, blackheads or whiteheads, or just looking for a good cleanser for your oily skin, this is what you need! Since this is very gentle and isn’t drying at all, it might work well for people with dry skin as well.

If you want to know about another holy grail of mine that helps get rid of blackheads then read this review of The Ordinary Glycolic Acid to know how it transformed my face.


  1. Hey Rifat,

    Thank you so much for recommending this product. It came yesterday and i used it before bed and again this morning and my face feels amazing. I do have a question though, you said if a person has flawless skin, to avoid this product. I won’t say I have flawless skin but I definitely don’t have acne, maybe blocked pores because I never use any cleanser lol. Is this still a good product for me? I mean I have no complaints right now but will love to know. Thank you again.

    1. Ooh yes, it is!! I consider it to be one of the most basic cleansers that helps in cleansing your skin as well as taking care of clogged pores. Thank you for buying it on my recommendation and you should still keep using it. By flawless skin, I meant for people who don’t have excessively oily skin or blackheads, etc.

  2. Great review! I’m using The Ordinary salicylic acid for my acne and it’s working pretty well. I might try this too!

      Thank you so much! I want to try the ordinary salicylic acid as well. Have used their glycolic acid and niacinamide and I’m now a fan of the brand!

  3. Oh I love this brand, I use a few of their products regularly (their mattifying cream is great for keeping away midday shine) I haven’t tried this so I may have to give it a go!

    1. Rifat Yaseen says:

      I’ll give the mattifying cream a try definitely. My oily skin could use something like this. Thanks for suggesting! 🙂

  4. That foaming cleanser sounds great…I like your tips at the end and I do agree not to use many products on face at the same time…thanks for review..❤️

      Thanks for dropping by! Yes, one should be very patient when it comes to skincare. It’s by far the best cleanser I’ve tried. 🙂

        Hi, I have a question–I started using this seba med face wash and it got rid of my pimples and acne and made my skin really clear but after a few days, it started to dry out my skin and now my skin looks like it is burnt and I have dark patches all over.

        Is there something that I am doing wrong or is the face wash just not working for me??

        Please help me!! Thank you!

        1. Hey! That shouldn’t be the case since it has been like 7-8 months that I’m using this face wash. Are you sure it’s because of the cleanser only? How many times are you using it in a day plus do you use sunscreen? Maybe, keep the face wash away for a while and apply aloe vera gel to calm your skin.
