==Price and Availability==
I'd never heard of Australian Bodycare until my Mum ordered some of their products from QVC; she was really impressed with the results. She had a few different products and I tried a couple of them out, one of them being a Facial Cleansing Gel. I really liked it so my Mum ordered me a bottle from feelunique.com as it only came as part of a set from QVC. She paid just under £11 for a 250ml bottle which is still the price at the moment, it's available from Amazon as well for the same price but most other sites sell it for a bit more.
==Australian Bodycare Facial Cleansing Gel ==
The cleansing gel comes in a blue bottle with a pump top cap, it's very basic packaging and if I was in a shop I don't think I would pick it up to find out more. It's said to be a gentle facial wash which removes bacteria, dirt and make up. The cleanser is designed to deeply cleanse the skin whilst also being gentle to the delicate skin on the face, for this reason it's suitable for even sensitive skin. Although the cleanser contains Tea Tree it promises to be fragrance free, it's also colour free with a skin friendly PH. It's recommended that this cleanser is used in the morning and in the night, simply by washing the face with it and then rinsing. This cleanser is recommended for anyone with sensitive or delicate skin, it's also recommended for teenagers who suffer with spots/acne or those looking to avoid breakouts.
The cleanser is quite thick and gel like in consistency, it doesn't really have a scent, there's a slight hint of tea tree but in the main it's just quite fresh and clean smelling. In use I find that the cleanser hardly lathers at all, which I don't mind with some cleansers but as this is a wash on/ wash off cleanser I would prefer it to lather up in use. I find I use quite a lot of the cream and as I only bought it in a 250ml bottle it lasted under a month which I was really disappointed in especially as it's a little more than I would usually pay for a cleanser which is used twice daily. After washing my face it feels really clean and fresh, it's for this reason I decided to purchase it after trying my Mum's. It gives a very light and soft feeling to the skin, and also seems to add brightness. It isn't often I suffer with spots but sometimes I do have breakouts which can last anything from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. It's at these times that this cleanser really comes into its own. Any spots are quickly cleared up, I only suffered with spots once with the first bottle and after using the cleanser, it was a matter of a few hours before my skin was looking and feeling better. Overall there weren't any long term benefits of the cleanser for me, my skin doesn't really feel that different, perhaps a little drier than usual. As I found this cleanser was excellent for dealing with spots, particularly break outs I bought another bottle and I continue to use it occasionally when my skin needs clearing up. I've continued to find it excellent for this, and it never fails to stop break outs very quickly and keeps my skin clear.
This cleanser is a difficult one to sum up for me, at first impressions it's really good, apart from the fact that you have to use quite a bit to get good coverage. It does leave skin feeling really clean and seems to get rid of spots within just a few hours. The bottle doesn't last very long though, and it's not all that cheap, especially as long term it doesn't make much difference for my skin. I have re-purchased but only for use when my skin feels like it needs a really deep clean or I'm suffering with spots, and for this purpose the cleanser is very good.
Australian Body Care Facial Cleansing Gel is a gentle facial cleanser that whilst effectively removes daily dirt and grime build up it is still skin friendly and non-drying / '
