The packaging is pretty standard, at the end of the day it is a face wash so it isn't meant to be aesthetically pleasing, I personally like the pump as it means I can apply the amount needed and there is little waste the durable packaging is also good for me because I use this when in the shower.
All that scientific sounding malarkey
I have been using this product for a while now and I can happily say has worked wonders.
Every night when in the shower I use this product by simply applying it to my damp face in circular motions then removing it using a damp Liz Earle deep cleansing mask sponge. Before I had visibly large pores around my nose, but now they are basically unnoticeable and my face also feels much cleaner. I have read many reviews where poeple have said they do not recommend it for people with dry skin, I personally have dry skin and cannot see why people would say so. I am also fortunate enough to have nice sensitive teenage skin that is prone to acne so I am often extremely precautions before smothering something new all over my face and thankfully this didn't cause me to break out and resemble a pizza like many cleansers have in the past. The charcoal it contains is supposedly what draws out the dirt, impurities and overall grossness from your skin and is apparently used in many Asian beauty products and we all know Asian skincare is the holy grail of all skincare so surely this must be good?
The consistency of the product is weird and hard to explain the grey gel with tiny black bits (I assume are the charcoal) turns into a white foam like mask when massaged into the skin.
Although I usually much prefer a face wash that exfoliates this still left my skin feeling really clean and soft.
Kind of resembles some kind of alien goo (don't let that put you off)
For only £4.99 at Boots, I definitely say give it a go if you are on the look out for a cleanser that will banish those larger pores and leave your skin feeling cleaner than clean.
