Hey Beauts! This post is going to be helpful for those of you who have acne prone skin, skin that gets congested and pores get blocked resulting in a breakout. I have reviewed this product over two years ago when I first discovered it, and have been using it pretty much ever since - trying a few other cleansers but returning to this one. My skin used to suffer from pretty active acne breakouts, slowly I got it under control and I find that Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel is an easily available [I purchase mine at Boots] facial cleanser that keeps my skin clear and helps a spot to go away very quickly instead of sitting there for days like it used to.
It has salicylic acid which helps to clear out the pores from with in, meaning it doesn't just sit on the surface of the skin but penetrates deep in the pore preventing further breakouts. This is one of those cleansers that will make your skin peel, so if you have a spot it will dry it out, clear the pore and then the old skin cells just flake off revealing a clear looking skin. If you are new to salicylic acid you will find that in the beginning you will peel a lot, then after a month when your skin will start to get clear it will only peel after spots. I highly recommend this product if you suffer from acne or regular breakouts. It has worked for me when I was frustrated with my skin, and it still works years later.
