I’ve never tried a clay cleanser so I couldn’t wait to review the Neogen Canadian Pore Clay Cleanser. Containing an impressive range of skin clearing ingredients, it aims to fight pesky blemishes, soothe rosacea and clear congested pores. Thanks to its ability to deal with multiple skin care issues and pull out impurities, it’s ideal for oily, combination, acne-prone and sensitive skin types.

An incredible ingredients list for a glowing complexion

This boosts skin and promotes a glowing complexion with a range of nourishing natural ingredients. Canadian colloidal clay has anti-ageing properties and also detoxifies congested skin, banishes dry skin cells and reduces pore size. Kaolin clay acts as a gentle exfoliator to further slough off dry skin, handy if you have sensitive skin. If you want to know how to minimise pores on your face, you’ll be pleased to know bentonite helps deep clean blocked pores.

Eggplants are high in Vitamin C and help make congested complexions clearer. One of Novak Djokovic’s favourite foods, buckwheat is rich in antioxidants and targets premature ageing. Centella asiatica stimulates collagen protection and hydrates skin.

Banana offers additional protection from signs of ageing, regulates oil levels and hydrates skin. Mango is another super ingredient that helps protect skin from rosacea, acne and fines lines. Extracts of rice brighten skin and mushroom tackles acne, increases moisture and encourages a brighter complexion.

Honey is high in antioxidants to soothe irritated or inflamed skin and boosts moisture levels in dry skin types. Additional soothing comes from beta glucan, which reduces skin redness and increases collagen levels. Extracts of garlic, witch hazel and cucumber (the latter is high in vitamin C) also target skin inflammation. Grape extracts are high in vitamin C to help tighten skin and encourage an even skin tone.

How to use the Canadian Pore Clay Cleanser

Neogen recommend using this once or twice a week. Once opened, there’s a plastic seal and a cotton pad underneath to protect the product. It’s vital to put the plastic seal back on top to stop the cleanser drying out.

I adore the fluffy texture. I apply a thin layer across my face and gently massage in into my skin for five minutes. While I’m massaging it in, the glacial soil and carbonic acid work together to transform the clay into bubbles. Feels so weird but so good.

After five minutes I add a little water and massage the rich lather across my face in circular motions. I love that it’s so easy to wash it off with lukewarm water.

I have sensitive/combination skin, with excess oil across my forehead, chin and nose so I’m impressed this cleanser dramatically reduces oil across those areas. I’m equally impressed at how bright and clear my skin looks. The rosacea across my nose and cheek disappears and my pores are decongested. I’m thrilled this cleanser also gently prevents a build-up of dead skin cells with gentle exfoliation.

My face feels a little drier with this so I always follow up with a nourishing toner like theSukin Hydrating Mist Toner or theKrasna Anti-Ageing Eliksir Toner to hydrate my skin. Although you can use this to remove make up, I prefer using this as a second cleanser after anoil cleanser.

Here’s the secret to antioxidant up your skincare routine!

Antioxidants help fight the cell damages that naturally occur from oxidation, which eventually turn into free radicals. Free radicals eventually start a chain reaction of damages to more cells which affect both our body and skin health. Although you can find anti-oxidants in a variety of different natural ingredients like fruits and vegetables, some specific fruits and vegetables further flaunt higher levels and powerful antioxidant content.

Let’s face it. Staying in for a long period of time sounds easy at the beginning but can be challenging. During quarantine we already cleaned our full apartment twice, re-organized the kitchen, the closet and tried all of those recipes we always wanted to. But now it’s time to focus on ourselves and bless our skin with a little - well deserved - me time.

Transitional Weather Scaries? Add some H2 to your routine ASAP!

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. For many years I just catalogued my skin is oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.
