So about a month and a half ago I picked up Lush's Ultrabland and whilst I have no qualms with it, I still wanted to find a cleanser that was aimed at my skin type. Having oily skin means I’m always hunting for something that’s going to help look and feel less oily.
I’ve heard a lot about the First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads, so when I came across the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay I was like RED CLAY?! What is that? I still don’t know but considering I already use charcoal and white clay in masks, I thought red might as well come along for the journey.
I’ve been using this for a month now and I can say that I am happy with it. This product isn’t really meant to do much more than balance out the oil control for oily skin, and for me that’s perfect. I switch up my cleansers anyway so I can’t say it’s really made my skin less oily, but I don’t find that I am more oily. What I do love about this is that it really does clean the skin and feels detoxifying; I mainly use this after I’ve cleansed away my foundation. I feel like it’s the best thing for my skin after I’ve had makeup on for ten odd hours, not to mention after I’ve been commuting and dealing with air conditioning and central heating. I think possibly like the name suggests, you use it when your skin is in need of 'rescuing' although as it's a cleanser it great enough for day to day use.
I recently took this to my sisters when I stayed there and she used it in the evening and in the morning she said that the product was great because had made her skin look amazing. I’m not sure how much truth there is, but I thought I’d throw that in there mainly because my sister is type of person who uses something once and expects instant results.
It is a bit pricey in terms of how much I’d spend on a cleanser (I actually got a 10% discount) and I don’t actually think I’ll repurchase it because I feel like I’ll be going back to my beloved Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash. Overall this does what is says on the tin and most importantly, it has not broken me out so I’m definitely a happy chappy.
Have you tried this cleanser or any First Aid Beauty products? The Radiance pads should be mine as soon as I finish the ones I currently have, I also have my eye on the oatmeal mask..oh dear.
P.S The Feel Unique addiction is real, I’ve ordered a skincare set that I can’t wait to share with you all when it arrives!
