Well hello to you my reader chums! For today's post I'm going to share with you a skincare product I've been trialling over the past few weeks, Acne ultra clear cleansing power. I was given this to test out and even though I have never suffered with acne, I thought I would have a go and see how it coped with my current breakout. It's designed first and foremost as an acne treatment, however can also be used as a daily/nightly moisturiser.
Packaging - I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of the packaging. I like the clear through outer rim and mirrored lid, yet I think the bold writing takes that sophisticated look away, cheapening it slightly. As acne isn't really a topic people are thrilled about, the title 'ACNE' could have been concealed and written subtly- just my personal opinion. Other than that, I like how its a screw on lid and the amount of product you get for 50mls!
Scent - When I initially opened the tub, all I could smell was cinnamon, one of my favourite spices. Over time through using the cream twice a day, I got used to the cinnamon scent and it wasn't as prominent anymore for me, however the subtleness still lingers. The underlying scent is quite medical if that makes sense, it has the smell that you know isn't artificially made and will do the job!
Consistency - On the first application I was quite surprised about the thickness of this product and how a little certainly goes a long way! As it's meant for acne treatment, I focused it mainly on my 'breakout zone' areas including my forehead and chin. Since this was only a small percentage of my face, I needed the tiniest amount to blend in. When rubbing it into my skin, the product felt gentle and ultra creamy/thick, where the more you work it in, the easier it sets. As it is a rather thick consistency, it took more massaging than the usual moisturiser, yet settles in swiftly.
Did it do the job? That's the biggest question you're all wanting to know! As I don't have acne I can't comment from that perspective, however what I can say is the cream as certainly made a difference. After using it for a few weeks on my troublesome areas daily and nightly, the redness and spots have been reduced. I personally think it's down to this cream as I've really been working it into the skin on such a regular basis.
Overall, I've thoroughly enjoyed using this product and will continue to include it in my everyday skincare routine. One of my favourite elements has to be how natural the entire product is and you can even tell by the scent that it's not artificial what you're putting onto the skin. As it's such a natural remedy, I would definitely recommend it to everyone including those with sensitive skin.
I hope you enjoyed this beauty review. Have you tried this cream before?
