facewash uk

Hi what soap/facewash are all you guys in the uk using and have good results with.

I have been using dove sensitive soap but think it may be causing my clogged pores so am looking to change but want to make sure it is a decent one.

Thanks

I use either Act cleansing bar from boots (some claim it to be drying) i personally dont think it is

or biore pore perfect shine control cream wash

that one is VERY mild an feels good on the skin!

Cool i might do but am actually looking for a face wash more so than a bar and one that takes of make up all in one.

But everything seems to have clogging ingredients in grrrr

I like Dove soap and Pears soap, I'm currently using the new Dove with Green tea and cucumber to soothe the skin.

I've used most face washes available in boots, and I dont think theres anything any of them can do that Dove and Pears can't, they both remove makeup.

Ok thanks guys,its just from that list of clogging ingredients that was posted on here a while ago seems everything i can find has the bad stuff in,even simple products.

Oh well maybe i shud continue with dove until 3 months at least,just hate the way this regimen has made my skin. But it has stopped any nasties so will continue.

Hey Lou, I see your regimen is similar to mine, I also use Quinoderm 5%, I really like it.

I use the new Dove soap bar with green tea and cucumber.

I don't use Eucerun because it makes me so shiney which is a big pet hate, almost as much as spots ;)

Hiya,

I dont get shiney really so eucerin is really good for me.

I like quinoderm too it is cheap and works well. But i really want to start using normal stuff on my skin again without any bp,because i have heard that bp wont do anything for clogged pored or whatever these little under the skin things r,but am scared i will break out like before if i stop.

Do you think it is safe to maybe use a facewash with salycic acid in as that is meant to unclog pores isnt it?

It depends how sensetive your skin is, if its super sensetive a SA cleanser might break you out.

I've not found a face wash yet that is much good at unclogging pores, I've paid £30 for face washes and they have done nothing that my £0.59 Dove bar does.

If you stop using BP, you will break out, it's more a prevention than a cure.
