What we say:
The last product in the 3-step cleansing system is the Anti-Blemish Solutions All-Over Clearing Treatment, which is an oil-free moisturiser. This is the product that I was most cautious of as I am quite particular with the moisturisers that I use.
As the products in this range are designed to fight blemishes, they are naturally very drying, and I was concerned that the Clearing Treatment wouldn’t provide me with enough moisture to counteract dryness. Thankfully, my concerns have cleared, along with my unwanted blemishes!
The moisturiser is a very lightweight formula which absorbs instantly to refresh the skin and soothe any tightness caused by the foaming cleanser. The smell is slightly off putting as it does smell a bit medicinal, but if it works (which it has so far), it is something I’ll just have to get used to.
I usually have very oily skin, but after a week & a half of using the Anti-Blemish 3-step cleansing system, my skin seems to be more combination than oily. I have some dry skin patches that the moisturiser hasn’t quite hydrated enough, but I’m able to target those areas with a slightly richer moisturiser.
All in all, I have been very impressed with this 3-step cleansing system. It isn’t half as drying as I thought it might be, and it has really helped to clear unwanted blemishes. My skin is started to look a little less red in the cheek area which is an added bonus! If you suffer from oily skin and blemishes, I would recommend these products as a possible solution – while it might not work for everyone, it has certainly helped my skin!
