Skin type: oily, sensitive and acne prone
Skin tone: fair to medium
I have acne-prone skin and I keep trying tons of products hoping that my skin would eventually clear up. I use this cleanser and rarely break out anymore. Today’s review is about a non-foaming cleanser called Acti-Biotic Sebo-Savon Purifying Foaming Gel from Ericson Laboratoire. Read on to know more.
Price: $86 for 250 ml
The Acti-Biotic range features high-performance skincare entirely dedicated to the treatment of oily skin with whiteheads and blackheads. Formulated with a Phyto-Complex, it stimulates the synthesis of natural antibiotics in the skin to help fight off microbial attacks responsible for the appearance of spots. It’s a light foaming gel with anti-seborrheic and astringent properties regulate excess sebum all day long and significantly tightens dilated pores. Used daily, the Acti-Biotic range effectively treats whiteheads and blackheads, leaving the skin healthy with a matt finish.
How to Use:
Twice daily, massage in a circular motion on wet skin avoiding eye area. Rinse with tepid water. Pat dry and follow with toner or astringent.
This cleanser comes in the simple yet convenient packaging. I find the packaging to be non-fussy, sturdy and practical. I really appreciate a tiny nozzle to squirt out just the right amount of product. The bottle is huge, so not at all travel-friendly.
My Experience with Ericson Laboratoire Acti-Biotic Sebo-Savon Purifying Foaming Gel:
It is, indeed, a very gentle non-foaming gel cleanser that removes every trace of makeup. Ericson Laboratoire Acti-Biotic Sebo-Savon Purifying Foaming Gel has a light clean scent that reminds me of the smell of lots of botanical-based products that I have used, but that is not among the listed ingredients.
This hardworking cleanser lifts dead skin, oil, dirt and makeup but does so without stripping the skin. After use, my skin is left unbelievably clean, silky and soft. If you believe that your skin will only get truly clean from using a foaming or lathering cleanser then be prepared for a paradigm shift!
I’m still dealing with occasional breakouts and acne issues, but this cleanser makes my skin feel so fresh and so clean, and more than anything else, it’s improved the radiance of my skin. This gel cleanser has helped to balance my skin and reduce the dull appearance. This cleanser is so effective and satisfying to use that I reach for it very often.
