I've been seeing ads about it in magazines but never really spotted it on health and beauty stores until just a few weeks ago. I excitedly grabbed a bottle, not realizing that it was P527.75 for 125ml which is kinda steep.
This facial cleanser should be rinsed btw! It's not like good old Cetaphil soap-free cleanser. The bottle said it's a foaming variant, but the consistency is actually runny. I've never had luck in ever making a foam or lather with it, haha!
I have combination skin, so I feel tightness on some parts of my face after washing with this. That can be resolved by applying moisturizer though. The sort-of alcoholic smell needs some getting used to.
Tiny but painful whiteheads sparingly broke out on my face during the first week that I was using this. But learning that I would have to give a product time to actually work, I continued to use it. I wouldn't let such a pricey product go to waste no!
I'm on my 3rd week of using this and I can see that my face is a lot smoother. It doesn't do much about oil control, it didn't even claim to be. But I noticed that my face doesn't keep a lot of blackheads since.
I'll be on my late 20's this december, so I'd have to steer clear of overly exfoliating my face. This is a great alternate to my all time favorite St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub that does a very good job at exfoliating and fighting all-around skin blemishes!
