Perfect mild gel cleanser for acne prone skin
June 8, 2019
The cult favorite gel cleanser is what I recommend to anyone looking for something that is not too stripping on the skin. Perfect as a 1 step mild cleanser for mornings and as a 2nd step water based cleanser for nights as well. It has a pretty clean ingredients list and contains some acne fighting ingredients like betaine salicylate, tea tree leaf oil and citric acid, which can also help fight pigmentation, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, clogged pores, although all those can be triggering for sensitive skin. It has a nice consistency and foams up nicely when mixed with a bit of water. It's ph friendly and doesn't dry out my skin. But for really dry skin types this cleanser might be a bit risky, after all it is formulated as gel, so milky cleanser may be a better option for those. The scent on the other hand, although not artificial and very strong and tea tree-like can be off putting for some, it took a bit for me to get used to it. All around it's a nice gel cleanser to try out, especially if you're fighting acne, plus, look at its price point. Already purchased another one to stack up.
