If you've read my blog long enough, you'll know I have a strong dislike of gel cleansers. Having oily/combination skin, I was always told to use gel cleansers to get rid of excess oil – which actually does the exact opposite of helping skin like mine. But that’s another story for another day. Long story short, gel cleansers and I don’t get on.
Until I used Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleanser*, £9 that is. Eucerin is a German brand which I have seen in Boots, but I tend to stick to my skincare that works so never ventured into.
I use the soap-free gel cleanser mostly as my morning cleanser and in the evening as my second cleanser. The cleanser is a clear, quite runny gel. It has no fragrance whatsoever and lathers a little as you apply and rub the cleanser on your skin. I like the fact that it doesn’t lather a lot like other gel cleansers. As I wash the cleanser off, there’s no residue left behind yet my skin feels hydrated (i.e. no tight feeling). I feel that it cleanses my skin without really stripping it and it has helped to control the excess oil around my t-zone. I find that my skin doesn’t get oily quite so quickly.
The cleanser is non-comedogenic, so will not block your pores causing any blackheads or congested skin concerns. The cleanser contains anti-bacterial properties to cleanse skin of any blemish causing nasties!
One thing I want to mention, the cleanser states it contains ‘A concentration of 6% Ampho-Tenside and anti-bacterical properties give ensure that skin is fresh and clear.’ – to my knowledge, the ampho-tenside is a form of emulsifier i.e. mixes oil with water, so I’m not sure why the concentration is stated on the bottle as an active ingredient. Although there are some forms of amphoteric emulsifiers that are used in cosmetics due to their herbicidal properties. In which case, they should have used the term amphoteric rather than ampho-tenside. Apologies for the ramble, but I like to know what’s in my skincare!
Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleanser is really mild and gentle on the skin. I imagine people with sensitive skin will enjoy using this too. It lasts a really long time. I have been using it for a few weeks now and feel like I’ve hardly made a dent in the bottle!
If you are looking for a no-nonsense cleanser that’ll do what it says on the bottle, look no further!
