My skin has been freaking out a little recently. I'm not sure if it's the change in the weather temperature, if my diet has not been particularly great or if I just haven't been giving my skin the attention it needs...probably all of the above.
I always tend to use balm cleansers but as these don’t seem to be working for me at the moment I thought I would change it up a bit. My skin has been really bumpy under the surface, not cystic spots but just little lumps, which never amount to anything. These areas are generally around the sides of the chin and only really noticeable to me but still very annoying.
I began testing the anti-ageing cleansing gel from Peter Thomas Roth. It is a liquid gel, which is scented with a delicate peach. It should be applied to damp skin and massaged over before rinsing off.
What does it contain?
Glycolic acid, salicylic acid and citric acid with white oak bark, lemon, linden and grapefruit. It is for all skin types except sensitive.
With a list of ingredients such as this you can be sure of some serious exfoliation. Being a cleanser it’s not a product that remains on the skin for too long. If you have areas that need extra exfoliation then ensure you massage the cleanser over for a little longer.
This cleanser does leave your skin feeling totally clean and lifts away makeup easily, although I wouldn’t recommend using it over the eyes, it’s a bit too acidic for that.
It advises use on all skins but I did find that after continuous use my skin began to feel a little dry. If you have a combination or oily skin then you will love the matte feeling this leaves after removal but a dryer skin will feel taught and a little uncomfortable.
Gives great clarity to a dulling skin and removes dead skin cells, which can lead to breakouts. Because of the various acids contained be extra cautious in the sunshine.
