Being a student with a beauty-product-weakness is not easy. You have to find a balance between quality and affordability. I have been using the same face wash for 4 years now and, sadly, the product has been discontinued in South Africa. So, I went to Clicks to look for a new face wash and day cream and I found Johnson’s Even Complexion face wash and SPF 15 day cream.

First of all, the product is inexpensive (yay!) and pretty.

I found that using only a pea sized amount of the wash on a dry face worked the best for me. The package says that the wash has ‘bursting beads’, which makes it very underwhelming when you only get one little red dot out of the tube every time you wash your face.

Nonetheless, the wash is very nourishing and does not feel like it is stripping your face of its natural oils.

The day cream is slightly too ‘sun-creamy’ for my liking, although it worked a lot better when I heated a little bit of the product up by rubbing my hands together before application.

I only had one little pimple while using the wash, but that was during the time of the month that I usually get a pimples (know what I mean?).

Overall, I quite liked the products.
