When it comes to facial washes they are something I use every day of my life. I tend to suffer from spots, blackheads and white heads not to mention a dull complexion and sadly at 36 years old these things don't seem to be improving any over time!
Now I bought this when in a hurry and watching my pennies and I didn't have time to scale the shelves and simply saw the simple tube of it, spotted that it was 97p and thought it made sense to give it a try however I do not have what you could refer to as 'Young Skin' unless your my Mothers age and besides who is to say what young skin is after-all we not told that on the tube lol.
Besides all that I have a young, temperamental skin anyway and couldn't see it harming me!
The tube is 100ml in size and its the only size it is available to purchase in and it is white, squeezy plastic with green and black writing all over it and a screw on/off lid cap to the bottom of it concealing a small hole and on the front of it we are told that it is Young Skin, Asda, Foaming Facial Scrub 'Helps improve dead cells and oil build up'. On the back of the tube we are told a bit about the product and how to use it, size is stated as well as ingredients and contact details for Asda are listed. Its a very simple and therefore economic looking tub but the lid screws on/off with real ease and the product is simple to squeeze out.
The Product Itself:
Well this is a very runny liquid facewash indeed. Thin and gel like with a peachy colour to it and plenty of visible, broken brown bits of walnut shell within it, it has really no fragrance to it at all. You only need a very small amount and it lathers up very gently.... in fact hardly any lather appears at all. It feels a little oily when in use which I guess is the Aloe Vera extract (as well as papaya natural extracts and willow) and the walnut particles don't feel scrubby at all but actually very smooth indeed. it rinses off well and that it that.
I can't say my face don't feel slightly cleansed after using this and it certainly doesn't make my skin feel tight of like there is any residue left on it at all though this doesn't remove make up but then we are not told anywhere on the packaging that it is meant to anyway.
However although I have had no adverse skin reactions to this, using it daily for the past three weeks now I can't say that it has helped with any redness of my skin which is what is promised on the tube and my complexion doesn't look any clearer at all and still just as congested.
It is a so so, cheapy offering from Asda but I'm not impressed with it really as you can probably tell from the tone of my review!
Only available in Asda stores.
