Hi lovelies, I hope you are all doing well. I showed you guys my haul a little while back, and now I am reviewing one of the products. I have purchased this product twice and would love to let you know what I think and read your opinions as well.
I have oily skin which is acne prone, therefore it takes quite some effort to look good. I have a lot of products included in my daily routine, this gel wash is also a part of it (hoping to do a video on this soon, let me know if you are interested).
The packaging is pretty simple and comfortable for use at home and even when travelling. When I use it at home, I don't close the top once I open it, but if you need to travel all you have to do is close it and open to once you get to your destination. It is easy to use; you just press out the amount you think is ok for your face. 1 squirt for me is fine as I apply it on a makeup free clean face.
It is a clear gel wash which contains salicylic acid and purifying zinc. Now I am going to get a little bit technical for a moment. Salicylic acid is a monohydroxybenzoic acid which is used to treat acne. When applied on the skin, it penetrates the follicles and helps exfoliate dead skin cells from within thereby keeping the pores free from cellular debris and reducing breakouts.
Because it contains salicylic acid and purifying agents, this product cleans and tightens the pores making your skin so much better. Right after you wash your face, you can feel that it is kind of matte.
I use this product on my face in the morning and at night and it doesn't dry me out (of course this also depends on your skin type and that your skin is moisturized regularly).
I have seen significant improvement in my skin and would definitely recommend this product for anyone with oily or combination skin. Pricing wise, I would say this product is very affordable. It costs about €5 and lasts for months because you only need a little. At Prizma, this product is on discount sometimes which makes it even cheaper.
Have you ever used this product? What do you think?
