I have sensitive skin with rosacea. Because of this it can get dry and itchy, or can flare up and get red and uncomfortable if I use too many products, or the wrong products on it. I needed a new cleanser and was debating what to go with. Several people on a rosacea support forum I'm a member on recommended an A'kin product so I decided to look them up.
I saw a few different ones online but decided this one sounded the nicest, plus it's especially for sensitive skin. It was a bit more expensive than I usually pay but I figured if it worked for my skin it was worth it, plus the product was natural and wasn't tested on animals.
I can find A'kin products online easily but I've never seen them in any shops near me so I always have to remember to order a new one before the old one runs out but that's not the end of the world. I don't know if they aren't sold in physical shops at all, or just ones in Belfast but I haven't found any.
It was around £9 when I bought it but lasted for absolutely ages. I didn't need to use much each time I cleansed my face, a little goes a long way. It smells amazing and is so creamy and lovely to use. It removed all makeup for me as well, although I don't wear a great deal day to day so I'm only going on what I noticed. I do wear more makeup at weekends going out and it did remove the mascara and eyeliner but I still didn't wear a lot of foundation/blusher etc so you could find it different if you wear a lot.
After using my skin felt really clean and soft, not dry, tight or irritated at all, which was like the Holy Grail for me! I love this product and highly recommend it. It's gentle enough to be used every day, twice a day if you want (which I do if working out etc) but still seems to remove all dirt and makeup. I noticed when using this my rosacea seemed to calm down and I wasn't getting as much dry or tightness to my skin.
