Current Favourite Cleanser: Super Facialist's Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Purifying Cleansing Wash

2 June 2016


I have sung praises for the brand Super Facialist by Una Brennan a fair few times on this blog, and currently my review of the Salicylic Anti Blemish Clay Mask is my most read post ever (thank you if you’ve read it, and if not, it’s in the sidebar if you wanna *insert smirking emoji*). Hands down it is the best face mask I have tried that will visibly clear and smooth out my complexion overnight and so understandably I wanted to try more from the brand's Anti Blemish range. 

When it came to repurchasing my La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel, I instead opted for this in the hope of finding a dupe at a more reasonable and student friendly price. Although this lacks the thin consistency of Effaclar and is a lot thicker, I'm overall really impressed with the Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Purifying Cleansing Wash. Salicylic acid is widely known for its spot fighting qualities and the refreshing feeling that's left after using this, it's like you can feel the cleanser really working to detoxify and deep cleanse the face. I've always preferred gel and foaming cleansers to cream ones or those you use with a flannel with having oily skin, as I feel the best method to rid my oily skin of its excess oils - but this can also be used with a warm damp flannel.

I use this in the morning and in the evening as a second cleanse, after I've removed my makeup. What I like most about this is that it works to deep clean and clear congested skin of its impurities but doesn't strip the skin of all it's moisture and with elderflower as a key ingredient, it works to balance the complexion helping it to be and look healthier and clearer. I can't vouch that this cleanser has left my skin completely clear with the stress and the amount of refined sugar I've had to fuel my long shifts in the library recently, but I do believe it's working to keep my hormonal breakouts at bay.

Overall, I'm really pleased with this cleanser and would happily repurchase this. As a drugstore cleanser, it packs a punch in it's anti-blemish powers and leaves my skin feeling refreshed but not tight or dry.

What's your favourite cleanser at the moment? And have you tried any of the Super Facialist range?

    1. I am a huge huge fan of the Effaclar range, but I'm taking a break from it at the moment because I think my skin is becoming immune to it's spot-fighting qualities. But yeah the consistency of this is a lot thicker, so you should enjoy this. Let me know what you think if you try it :) x
