    10 Best Tried and True Japanese Foaming Nets in 2022 (Beauty Expert-Reviewed)

    Washing your face at the beginning and end of the day is an essential step in a healthy skincare routine. However, one of the worst things you can do to your skin is to apply excessive amounts of friction, which means you shouldn't vigorously rub your face with your hands, and instead, ideally have a dense layer of foam sandwiched between your face and your hands. Unfortunately, lathering your face wash with your hands can be time-consuming and requires technique to get a good lather, and most of the time, the bubbles just don't last very long.Foaming nets are ingenious products that allow you to create a voluminous, dense lather in no time. Additionally, you can use less product than you would if you were to lather your face wash with your hands, allowing you to enjoy your favorite products for longer. Today, many companies and brands, such as Marna, KOKUBO, Fancl, and Bulk Homme, to name a few, have released foaming nets in all shapes and sizes, making it difficult to know which one to choose.To determine which foaming nets are the best, we gathered the 21 best-selling products from e-commerce sites popular in Japan, such as Amazon, Rakuten, Yahoo! Shopping, and @Cosme SHOPPING, and tested them all.We then ranked the 10 best Japanese foaming nets based on our test results, and put what we learned into a buying guide to help you choose the best Japanese foaming nets available online in 2022.
