I don’t suffer from acne but I still get the odd blemish around my lower chin, particularly during a certain time of the month. Bad skin before your period is  a definite no, right? Luckily, this promotes a healthy complexion and keeps blemishes in check by clearing the skin. This foaming salicylic acid cleanser regulates the skin’s oil levels to ensure skin is glowing, not greasy. I’m not swooning, you are.



The Neogen A-Clear Soothing Foam Cleanser is a triple threat cleanser to get blemish-free skin. Not only does it deeply cleanse congested pores but it also protects and calms skin. With a gentle formula, it’s ideal for lots of skin types including, acne-prone, combination, oily and sensitive.


Ingredients to pull impurities out of your face

Because tea tree and liquorice both have anti-inflammatory benefits, it’s no surprise they’re key ingredients. With the aim of reducing redness and skin irritation, this cleanser ideal is if you want to prevent bad skin breakouts before your period. Goodbye Mount Vesuvius, hello beautiful clear skin.

Knowing you need to exfoliate but can’t use anything harsh is frustrating when dealing with blemishes and sensitive skin. That’s where this cleanser comes in. Containing salicylic acid to naturally exfoliate skin, dry dead skin cells are removed without causing skin irritation.


Allantoin also has anti-inflammatory benefits and increases skin smoothness. Additional skin soothing comes from extracts of centella asiatica extract, green tea and panthenol, which work together to calm irritated skin.

Skin benefits of azulene include calming and soothing skin inflammation so it’s perfect if you want to banish acne or redness associated with rosacea. High in antioxidants, it also helps prevent premature ageing and increases moisture in the skin. Witch hazel encourages a clearer complexion and keeps it free from unwanted blemishes.

Grapefruit acts as a gentle exfoliator and offers a variety of anti-ageing benefits like brightening an uneven skin tone (goodbye red patches). It’s also good for toning the skin and balancing oil, making it ideal for oily skin types.

A Korean foam cleanser for sensitive skin

Although this is gentle enough to use as a first cleanser, I prefer using it as a second cleanser after a cleansing oil. I apply a small amount to dry skin, add a little water and massage it into a foam. I’m really impressed at how well this lathers up. My cheeks usually feel hot thanks to my rosacea and I’m pleased this cleanser cools my skin within seconds.

I suffered with a little rosacea flare up before I first used this, which disappeared the moment I washed it off. I would definitely buy this after finishing the tube and use it to help maintain a healthy blemish-free complexion, particularly before a certain time of the month. It doesn’t irritate my skin and makes it feel fresher and smoother. I’m not usually a fan of the smell of tea tree but I like it in this.

Although witch hazel can trigger rosacea flare ups (however, it can actually be beneficial for rosacea and couperose), I haven’t experienced any. I’m extremely gentle when I massage this into my rosacea prone areas (nose and cheeks). If anything, my skin feels instantly refreshed. My forehead looks less oily, making this an ideal cleanser for oily skin.

The handy 100ml size is great if you’re looking for a cleanser for travelling. I usually decant my skin care items into smaller containers but if you’re going to be away for a while, this is perfect.

I love applying a hydrating toner after double cleansing my skin. Check out my review of the

Meet your fast - yet effective - spot care essentials for winter

When talking acne there’s a few things we need to keep in mind: first off, we can all have it, and for that same reason we all need to know how to keep it under control once it decides to show up. For the longest time of my life I had to struggle with having no idea how acne really worked. I went from dermatologists to dermatologist thinking they were finally gonna share the big secret behind how to get rid of it for good, but it never happened, or at least not until I turned to K-Beauty.

Sunscreen and Aging: Here’s why these are and item

You know when you joke about things but deep down you’re being serious and just hoping for someone to join you on your crazy ideas? Well, that’s me talking about wanting to create a sunscreen cult. I’m the sunscreen lady. I’m allergic to cats so cat lady wasn’t and option for me, so sunscreen it is. Since I learned how fundamental it was to wear it every single day of my life in order to have good skin I never went back. It’s a long term relationship and I know it will last forever.


NEO I TRENDING <br>The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

The answer behind long-lasting hydration? Hyaluronic Acid!

You hear the term everywhere. From skincare, to supplements and even some makeup brands are using it lately. Hyaluronic acid is without a doubt part of the skincare royalty, and there’s a reason why.

Hydration is one of the main signs of a healthy complexion. In a way, all we do for our skin has a focus on keeping it hydrated. When dehydration takes over, all the other skin struggles we could be facing get worse, reason why in a nutshell, we can’t get rid of acne, wrinkles, dark spots, rosacea, eczema or any other concern if our skin is not hydrated, and here’s where Hyaluronic Acid plays a lead role.

The two hero-moisturizers that will save your skin this winter

And just like that, winter is here once again and not only my wardrobe noticed it but my skin did too. I don't know about you I'm already running through basically a whole bottle of toner a month and don't even get me started on the sometimes-insane amounts of mist I apply throughout the day. Totally #guilty of using it every single minute of my day.
