Well, after my wee rant against Lush yesterday, I went to Boots in the search for a new face cleanser. I'd had a quick look online and Olay had a 2 for £4 offer on it Boots, so I was planning on getting one of theirs. Before I found the incredible Vitamin C SPF 30 Day Cream from the Body Shop, Olay were always my go-to moisturisers, so I thought I'd give the cleansers a try.
Once I got to Boots though, I made my first stop the Premium Skincare aisle. After skipping over all No 7 products which are really pricey, I found myself at Vichy. Now, I use the Vichy-Dermablend foundation which is great, and really covers any problem areas without looking or feeling heavy. I know that Vichy are a specialist skincare brand that cater for problem skins, so I had a look at some of their cleansers, which are expensive but not too bad. The average seemed to be about £10 for a 200ml bottle.
I had a look at the cleanser for 'acne prone skin', as I am prone to bouts of acne and spots, but I worried that it would be quite harsh as most people with acne have very oily skin, whereas mine is normal-to-dry. This is why I had the products with the Lush products, I guess, as anything that removes the natural oils from my face leaves me feeling very dry and sensitive.
This cleanser set me back £8 or 200ml, so not bad for a "Premium skincare product", and I get the feeling that it might become my all-time favourite face cleanser, so money well-spent!
After my grumpy Lush posts yesterday, I thought I'd follow it up with a happy ending to my face-care woes.
