This is the most intensive cleanser I have ever used! Other cleansers simply do not remove all my excess makeup etc that must be removed before bed!
I have used this for over 4 years therefore my skin has gotten used to it. It can however be very harsh on the skin and other that have used it (not as religiously as me) tell me it stings greatly and feels damaging. I continue its use however as I'm yet to find a more sensitive cleanser that cleans my face this much.
Extensive moisturiser is required afterwards as it can be quite drying - particularly during winter!
Been using this foundation for over 4 years now! I would like to note however that I use the normal/dry skin formula as the oily formula breaks me out massively!
Besides this slight flaw in marketing as they are basically completely different foundations, I used this foundation when my acne was at its worst and it was the only foundation that stay put the entire day and provides full coverage.
I've had severe acne for over 12 years, since the age of 9. I've tried various over the counter and prescribed creams/ gels etc. I also took various anti-biotics as prescribed by my dermatologist. These worked somewhat however not dramatic differences were seen. I have tried every lotion and potion and skin "hack" under the sun. Yasmin cured my acne within a few months. Of course my skin is severely scared however it has cleared almost all my cystic acne and my complexion is so much clearer! Of course I always have one or two spots but compared to the full face of hormonal acne I once wore, this has been such a dramatic improvement within the 7 months I have been taking it.
Despite this, Yasmin did give me awful cellulite. I was technically underweight for my age and height so this was obviously worrying as I did not gain weight- just cellulite.
This was the first lush cleanser I've ever used. There was soooo much hype about it so naturally I was excited to use it. I actually loved the smell. I used this twice a day, and shortly after using it I developed a buuuunch of tiny pimples all along my face - mind you, I'm already suffering with horrible cystic acne. So I used this for about two months because sometimes cleansers can apparently make your skin worse before it gets better, or something like that. Well every time I used the cleanser, it left horrible black residue all over my face. So I had to scrub with a washcloth to get it off, which irritated my skin. Then, when I thought all of the cleanser was off, I would go in with toner and a cotton round and when I was done the cotton round would be covered in black residue from dark angels. So I really give up with lush cleansers (herbalism did the same thing with residue and gave me the most painful cystic acne) and highly suggest not using them because of this. They also contain fragrance which is not great for your skin. If you are looking for a wonderful cleanser for acne, especially a more natural one, I highly suggest the tea tree oil spa cleanser from Trader Joe's!
