Well it’s Friday, I’ve had one day off in twelve days which was almost entirely spent outside the house with family (I don’t class that as a real day off). So it’s safe to say that I am exhausted and very much looking forward to this weekend. I plan to get a massage, exercise, sort everything out and just sleep because I’ve been getting under seven hours a night and it’s killing me.
Today I’m reviewing Superdrug’s Deep Action cleansing lotion.
I’ve used a few of the products from this range that have worked okay for me and the only product left that I wanted to try was the cleansing lotion. This product has the highest allowed amount of salicylic acid so it’s very strong lotion that I hoped would work wonders. The lotion also contains witch hazel which tightens pores and minimises oil so it seemed like a good all rounder for my needs. I have used this with cotton pads, but I have also applied it with my hands in the shower. The product size is fairly large so it’s been lasting quite a while. It stings a little when I apply it but the sensation doesn’t last for a long time, and it’s not really uncomfortable. I’ve noticed a change in my skin since I started using it, my skin seems less oily and the breakouts have been less around the centre of my face. However, I’ve still had breakouts around the sides of my face and haven’t noticed a reduction in pore size. I will be concentrating my attention to my problem areas and seeing if I can stop the breakouts all together. Despite the lotion not entirely sorting out my skin issues I believe the lotion has done it’s job on the majority of my face, except the areas which have contact with my hair. I would also advise using a moisturiser afterwards because it can be quite drying. I will continue to use the product and will buy more when I run out. One for the skincare arsenal. The 200ml bottle costs £2.69, and this range is often part of special offers.
