Amidst all the balm and oil cleansers hyped and raved about by industry experts and bloggers alike, I've found love for something that's not a novelty in texture but instead effective in it's approach. I feel it doesn't have to have a certain on-trend texture or consistency to become my favourite. What matters is how well it performs and how quickly at that.
The ingredients in this baby are perfect for my current skin that's erupted in a sudden cluster of breakouts. No rhyme or reason, just happened. I feel other face washes aggravate it very quickly and this has been that stable rock that I've been relying on recently for vain affairs. It doesn't block pores and is free from all those skin aggravating fragrances and chemicals.
The formula of it is nourishing, hydrating and mildly cleansing. Nothing too pore stripping or skin clogging. I like to opt for this instead of the usual balm cleansers because all that richness and oils in those just does not suit my skin when it's erupted suddenly. This I feel hits middle ground where it feels cooling, light and gentle whilst adding a dash of hydration so face isn't left feeling taut after use.
It doesn't lather or foam as much creating bubbles or anything fairy liquid like at that but rather turns into a dense, mousse like formula that you can massage skin with in the shower. I follow it up with some acid exfoliation, a clay mask and sealed off with a layer of facial oil, hoping skin will soon glow like Caroline Hirons.
