Palmer’s Skin Success Deep Cleansing Facial Astringent is so underrated! At least we think so
I have used Palmers Skin Success deep cleansing facial astringent (and the Acne Medication Cleanser) for as long as I can remember; no less than 16 years! (It’s one skincare/beauty product I have been able to consciously and consistently use over the years. At a point, every single skincare product I used was from Palmer’s.)
Palmer’s is well over 100 years old, and even though few of their products seem to be unavailable these days (you’ve got to find a trusted supplier) their products remain must-haves for healthy skin.
It’s one to own, especially if you have oily skin, are prone to acne or have skin blemishes and it’s safe for everyday use.
In my early teenage days, I had blemished skin; acne and, as a result, dark spots because I won’t keep my hands off my face. Thankfully, my mum made me take skincare seriously as early as then, so she got me the very first bottle.
The astringent wipes away every trace of oil and dirt off the face. It reaches deep into the skin even when you feel your face is clean (you’d be shocked at the number of grits, and dead skin on the skin even on days you go makeup free).
It’s not harsh on my skin, though a bit drying if you have dry skin you should test patch first- I can assure you the skin feels squeaky clean afterwards. It also stops acne, so if you use this you stand a chance of not breaking out, think of it as ‘killing acne before they even form’ – if there’s any scientific justification for that.
It contains Vitamin E, Isopropyl Alcohol, Zinc, and Menthol and is slightly perfumed so if those are turn-offs or you plain react to those compositions, that’s a cue to stay off.
It works for me, and I can go on and on about it! if you have blemished skin, it should definitely be on your beauty shelf.
(Make sure to test patch first to be sure it works perfectly for your skin).
What product have you used over the years and still works for you?
