Okay, I agree. No one has ever set the world alight with the review of a face wash.
But bear with me, this is a Beauty Blog after all, it can't all be lipgloss and mascara.
You've gotta start somewhere, and what use is a new MAC lipstick if you're covering up your face with a scarf because you're having (yet another) bad skin day.
As I have said before, I do have quite oily skin, which can be prone to breakouts, and so I preferred to use face washes that were specifically made for Acne skin.
In my opinion, if it didn't strip your skin, and leave it dried out - it just wasn't working.
The problem with using face wash made for spot prone skin is that some can strip your skin so much, that your skin then tries to combat the lack of moisture by producing even more oil a.k.a grease central.
I tried Johnson's Face Care Daily Essentials Refreshing Gel Wash when I was visiting family. I had received a couple of sachets in a magazine and to try and save space had brought them with me instead of my usual face wash. I wasn't expecting much from it to be honest, I had perceived Johnson's as a "gentle" baby brand, and assumed it would either leave a residue or not be "powerful" enough.
I hate to say it, but I was wrong, the face wash itself is so smooth, and feels very soft on your skin. Don't let the word "soft" fool you though. It cleaned my face thoroughly, leaving no residue, only a silky smooth face. The face wash has tiny little pink beads which burst when washing, leaving you refreshed. The smell has the same gently perfumed scent as all Johnson's products.
As soon as I had finished my sachets I went out and bought it straight away! With my own money I should add, and I wasn't disappointed. The packaging is pretty and simple, though do be careful not to squeeze too much of the face wash out, as this can easily happen.
- Leaves skin feeling super soft.
- Cleared my breakouts within days.
- Gentle enough to use daily.
- At £3.15 for 150ml (Boots price), this face wash is great value for money.
- Is widely stocked.
- Sometimes, if your not careful, too much product may ooze out.
Johnson's say: Gentle yet effective. Thanks to Johnson's expertise in soft, delicate skin, all products work in harmony with your skin type to provide gentle yet effective care for even sensitive skin.
I say: If you have problem skin, why not give this face wash a try? By taking a more gentle approach to you skin you might be surprised by the effect. Johnson's also have products lines for Dry and Combination skin. I really love this face wash and can't praise it enough. I highly recommend it :)
Johnson's Face Care Daily Essentials Refreshing Gel Wash 150ml can be bought here from Boots at £3.15, and is available in most supermarkets.
