Another skincare review today, (I swear I'm becoming obsessed!) this time I'm reviewing the NO7 purifying exfoliator. I picked this up in boots when I had a no7 skincare voucher so I managed to pick this up for £2.95 (usual price £7.95). It's described as a gentle exfoliator which is a clear gel-like consistency with little blue exfoliting beads.
I wanted to try this out as I have been getting blackheads recently and wanted something that would help keep them at bay. Because I'm already using my no7 cleansing brush as part of my nightly routine I switch it out with this product once a week and I've noticed that this has helped to clear up and brighten my skin -
when I first started using it I found that it drew out the impurities out of my skin and I did get a few 'break outs' but this settled down after my skin got used to the product.
It smells good, and my skin feels so soft after using it - although its marketed as a gentle cleanser I have found this to be abrasive enough for my skin and I don't think I'd want to use it more than once a week as this could become a bit too harsh.
What do you think of this cleanser?
