Designed for all skin types, this dermatologically tested EWG VERIFIED™ micellar cleanser can also remove light makeup.

Review:  These products were given to me in exchange for providing a fair and honest opinion.  ATTITUDE’s Micellar Foaming Cleanser is refreshing and a perfect way to either wake up with in the morning or wind down with at night.  I experienced no irritation and my skin felt quite clean and ready for the day or night.

ATTITUDE’s Micellar Foaming Cleanser is offered in three different scents and unscented.  The unscented version provides the same spectacular results as the scented ones, it just doesn’t contain a scent that might be bothersome to a few.  The Lemon Leaves scent is quite refreshing in the morning, while I found that the White Tea Leaves scent to be relaxing into the night.  The Orange Leaves scent was perfect for both day and night.  All-in-all, this product is excellent and I highly recommend it!
