So a few weeks ago I walked into Sephora in search of a new cleanser.
I spotted this cleanser and took a look at it. I'd heard people talk about it before and the reviews were promising. This line is owned/created by a reknowned dermatologist, so it's considered to be a prestigious line of skin care.
I was set to purchase it but then the SA started talking to me and she insisted that I try it before I buy it. She offered me a sample, so I thought "what the heck, why not?!"
I used it later that night, and kept using it for the next 3-4 days.
I noticed a difference in my skin.
It felt clean and clear (not only after washing my face, but even hours afterward).
A little info about my skin- I am quite acne prone, have combo-oily skin and I blemish up really easy. One scab will affect my overall complexion and can stay visible for months! (ahhh!)
Therefore, I love products that work. Products that make a visual difference!
A little info about the product-
Retails- $26 for a 6.75 oz bottle (Sephora, Ulta, etc.)
but there are websites where you can get it for a few dollars cheaper than retail value.
Texture- It's a somewhat runny yellowish/clear gel consistency. It lathers up in a rich foam, not too bubbly. It has a pine-sol like scent (reminiscent of lemons) but it's very faint.
A generous dime size amount is enough to cover and rinse your entire face.
Packaging- flip top plastic bottle that is stored upright. Nothing special, convenient. No issues.
Straight from Sephora's site:
What it is:
A maximum strength acne gel cleanser.
What it is formulated to do:
Effectively treats and prevents acne and skin breakouts by reducing 99.9 percent of irritating surface bacteria in less than one minute. Penetrates deep to keep skin clean and clear.
-Powerful Antibacterial Ingredients: Fights bacteria on contact.
-Salicylic Acid: Clears skin and prevents future breakouts.
-Chamomile and Green Tea Extracts: Comforts irritated skin.
I give this a 5/5 because it does what it claims to do (as I've been using this for 2+ weeks now).
Price might be a little steep for some but if you think about it- a bottle should last 3-4 months so it's like paying $6-8 per month for clear/clean skin? So worth it imo.
