It’s bank holiday Monday and I have an extra day off, I’m spending it with family and getting ready for work this week. I also have my CT scan tomorrow, I won’t get the results right away but I’m closer to finding out what’s going on, so some relief.
Today’s post is another skincare review, I’m still making my way through everything I bought as I want to evaluate each product properly and not mix them. Today it’s the Superdrug Clearly Youthful AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cream Cleanser.
This cleanser is supposed to be rich but gentle and able to remove both makeup and impurities. It is also supposed to leave a refreshed and radiant complexion. Based on their human trials the product should leave skin instantly soft, smooth, clear and radiant. After one week of use pores should look minimised and skin should appear clearer and healthier. Finally, after two weeks any blemishes should be reduced and skin should appear more uniform. Other features are that it doesn’t block pores, is antibacterial and provides all day shine control.
I use this cleanser in the shower because it’s far too cold for my summer sink washing routine, and the hot water takes ages to come on, who wants to freeze their bum off waiting for it or washing with cold water. First impressions were that the product has a nice feel, it’s creamy but not too thick, and has a pleasant sort of soapy smell although sometimes the scent has been a little overwhelming. When you rub it into the skin it foams up slightly and it washes off well. One thing I did note is that the product seems a little strong for my sensitive skin, it burns as soon as I put it on but luckily this subsides after washing it off. There are no after effects or redness on my skin and so I have stuck with it because it seems to be working. So far my skin is a little brighter and, while it hasn’t done too much for new breakouts, my blemishes have been reduced. I have been washing with this three times a week for a fortnight now and I’m really happy with it. I paid a bit more than I probably would usually spend on skincare at £3.69 for 150ml but a little bit goes a long way and it’s lasted very well.
Hope your bank holiday weekend has been lovely, even if the weather hasn’t been.
