They say: ‘A purifying, antibacterial cleanser formulated to combat and help prevent breakouts and blemishes.’
I say: 'This smells good (quite minty) and feels really creamy and moisturising which is quite unusual for a cleanser designed for problem skin. It doesn’t really foam very much but there’s something quite relaxing about taking the time to massage it in. After rinsing, my face felt really moisturised but I almost felt like I needed to use a toner afterwards to refresh my skin. It’s really good at getting rid of mascara though so I’d recommend it for that. Love the packaging, the pump dispenses just the right amount of product - it looks really cool and futuristic.'
Super by Dr Nicolas Perricone Sweet Clean $30.00 for 118ml
They say: ‘A gentle cleanser that wipes out dirt and makeup. Packed with Acai, an exotic antioxidant from the Amazon.’
I say: ‘Super by Nicholas Perricone is a really cool new skincare range, stocked in Boots. It’s like the friendly, less-scientifically-intimidating younger sister of the original NV Perricone range designed for older skin. I like this cleanser; it smells amazing (it contains Acai, every product in the Super range is based around a superfood) but doesn’t foam quite as well as I expected it to. It leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturised. Super.'
Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser £23 for 100ml
They say: ‘A stimulating gel cleanser for glowing skin.’
I say: 'This is my favourite of the three. It smells absolutely gorgeous, lathers beautifully, leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh and looks good on my bathroom shelf to boot. I have but one criticism: it could do with a pump dispenser because it’s quite hard to control the amount of product you pour out. I’m trying to be sparing because I want to make this last for ages. It really is that good. I will definitely buy this again.'
