I have talked in many places on this site about the importance of cleansing your face as part of your daily skin care routine. Clinique has a number of products in their skin care line designed for washing your face and could become a great part of your daily ritual to make your skin look younger. I’ll go into detail on their face wash products in my review below. As I always caution, be sure to consult your dermatologist before starting any new products, and apply them in small doses at first to see how your skin reacts.
Clinique Face Wash Review
This brand is known around the world and is nearly synonymous with skin care products. They are available over the counter for any consumer who wishes to purchase them. The idea behind this company is that it is not genetics that lead to great skin (though it certainly helps), but rather that great skin comes from the usage of properly made skin care products. I would add that a proper diet and nutrition go a long way for healthy skin as well. While the company started with just three products, it has grown to a wide catalog of eye creams, anti aging serums, moisturizers, cleansers and more.
There are a number of active ingredients across their numerous face wash products. The Oil Control Face Wash for Men is made with Sodium Chloride (salt), which increases the product’s density. It also has Di-PPG-2 Myreth-10 Adipate, a widely used skin conditioner, and Sodium Hyaluronate, a type of hyaluronic acid, which is a chemical known for its ability to hydrate skin and used in many of the other products reviewed on this site.
There is also a Wash Away Gel Cleanser with ingredients such as Tea-Cocoyl Glutamate which acts as a surfactant that breaks down the oils that build up in the skin’s layers and on the surface of the epidermis. Polyquaternium-6 is also used to improve the skin’s texture.
Possible Side Effects
If you have sensitive skin, a few of those active ingredients may lead to adverse side effects when using these products. Di-PPG-2 Myreth-10 Adipate is believed to be a carcinogen and cause dangers to the skin as well as internally as it penetrates the skin’s layers.
Where to Buy
These skin care products can be obtained through the manufacturer’s website as well as locally in most pharmacies near you. All of the products in this line of face washes are around $15-$20 which fits right into most people’s budget when buying products such as these.
Before buying a face wash like this, it is advised to read reviews online to see how it worked (or did not work) for others and if there were any side effects. We all have different skin types and may react differently, so it is best to consult a dermatologist before use and doing your research before purchasing and you can save yourself some money before buying products that do not work for your particular skin type or issues.
