Nelsons Pure & Clear Purifying Daily Facial Wash
Advantages: Pure ingredients
Disadvantages: A bit medicated
This is a review of Nelsons Pure & Clear Purifying Daily Facial Wash, a product I have been using for a few weeks since receiving a full sized sample in a beauty box.
What is it?
A tube of face wash designed as 'anti-blemish care' made from pure and natural plant extracts. It has a natural seaweed base with tea tree, arnica, hypericum and calendula so this anti-blemish and blackhead formula leaves skin the way nature intended - pure and clear.
The 125ml tube has a flip cap top which enables you to squeeze out just the right amount each time. It stands on its head so the product is ready and waiting. Around the tube is a large white label which shows the nelsons branding clearly plus information about the ingredients and expected results of using this face wash.
I use a 50p sized blob and massage it in to my face before rinsing thoroughly. The first thing I notice is the highly medicated smell of the product, which is the tea tree ingredient. It is not unpleasant and quite refreshing on the face. It is not strong enough to cause a tingle, and I didn't find this product foamed up on the face particularly but it did leave my face feeling clean. I really felt like my skin needed moisturising straight after use which is not a problem as I always moisturise after cleansing anyway. I still used my cream cleanser prior to using this face wash to remove make up. I have had no break outs or adverse effects after using this product.
I don't always use a face wash, feeling that cream cleanser is adequate to clean my face but I wasn't adverse to using this when I received it in a beauty box. I don't particularly suffer from spots or blackheads other than the odd one so perhaps I am not the ideal customer this brand targets. I like the natural ingredients and feel comforted that I am not using any harsh ingredients on my skin.
I had to look up the price of this having received mine as a sample although it was full sized. The cheapest price I found was £3.66 on Amazon with free postage which I think is a good price for this item.
I have found this a great skin care product to use and will also be using it to clean my make up brushes when I get round to it as I feel it is gentle enough to do the job with the extra advantage of the cleansing properties which is better than using a chemically based cleaner. I am interested to try other products from the very affordable Nelson's range and will be looking out for them in the future. A recommended face wash.
Summary: Nice face wash
