This is a continuation of our favorite products for January.
If you suffer from Acne this post is for you.
Looking for a lightweight, oil-free yet moisturizing moisturizer? Try Neutrogena’s Rapid Clear Acne Defense Face Lotion.
Yes, that’s a long name but this product is a Keeper! and here’s why:
The active ingredient in this product is Salicylic Acid 2%, a Beta Hydroxy Acid that loves oil, penetrates through oily skin to exfoliate it, unclogging pores. Now normally this percentage of Salicylic acid is usually found in Cleansers and toners but rarely lotions. The problem with just having them in Cleansers, is that it gets washed off too early before it does it job, so finding a lightweight lotion with this percentage is great!
Normally I use Dermalogica’s Active Moist moisturizer for my acneic skin, since it’s oil free and hydrates the skin; but when dealing with chronic acne, using a super power moisturizer that fights acne (without the use of irritating Benzoyl Peroxide) is always a Plus.
I’ve used this moisturizer for 1month now, and I love it, it keeps my skin clear, it is lightweight so I use it in the MORNING before my makeup and it smells great. Rather than FIGHT acne, I use it to PREVENT new ones from forming.
Product was purchased at Pharmacy in Grandsquare on Adetokunbo Ademola, Victoria Island, Lagos.
