My take on the Product

 

Few days back, I suffered a huge breakout on my face. I had big angry red pimples, about 5 of them on the right side of my face. I’m still not sure what caused these, I’ve not had this kind of a breakout for more than a year now. It was at this time that Avederm to my rescue!

The cleanser comes in a sturdy green colored plastic bottle with a pump to dispense the product. The pump can be locked and the bottle can be carried during travel. I don’t have any major issues with the packaging though a transparent bottle would have been nicer. The pump is a little hard and needs a good amount of pressure so a smoother mechanism would have been more convenient.

The cleanser is  runny pearly pale yellow liquid. It is a nonfoaming cleanser so it doesn’t lather on the face. I’m used to foaming cleansers so this one took a little time getting used to. I apply the cleanser on dry or damp skin, massage it with a few drops of water for about a minute and then wash it off. I can see an instant reduction in the angry redness of my breakouts after washing my face with this. The skin feels very soft, hydrated and it has a soft, healthy glow post rinsing. Since its very mild and non-foaming, it may seem like its not cleansing well but when I use a toner, there is no dirt or residue on the cotton pad. However, the absolute best part about this cleanser is that it really does calm down irritated skin – in my case angry blemishes and after 3-4 days of continuous use, I noticed the pimples shrinking. It also prevented fresh breakouts that seemed to be developing along my jaw line. And all of this without drying out the face like majority of anti-acne products do!

The brand has another range specifically for anti acne products and while this one is generally for sensitive/irritated skin, it works well for my blemish-prone skin especially during heavy breakouts. I used this in conjunction with La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo and my blemishes were nearly gone in a week.

If you have skin that is very sensitive and prone to breakouts, rashes etc, do give this one a try. Its one of the best cleansers I’ve tried for sensitive skin and I’m definitely purchasing my second bottle of this. The only downside I see with this cleanser is that I end up using 2 pumps most times as it doesn’t lather and I don’t feel clean till I’ve used a generous quantity, as a result, the bottle would last about a month with 2-3 washes per day. I’m now going to keep it just for breakout emergencies.

The cleanser has a strong fragrance which reminds me of tea. I quite like it actually but everyone may not. It vanishes post wash though so it should not be an issue.
