Palmer's Skin Success Acne Medication Cleanser-Review, Photos

Company/Brand Claim: Unclogs pores. Helps clear and prevent acne.

For Skin Type: Oily, Acne prone.

Packaging: Clear stiff plastic bottle with blue twist cap. The bottle is not travel friendly though because if it isn't kept straight up the liquid will flow out .

Product Consistency: -

Formulation: Watery

Texture and Feel: It has no texture as it is all clear water and it feels like nothing on the skin.

Color: Transparent

Fragrance: Strong fragrance, which goes away after application.

Application: I apply it with a cotton ball like any other astringent all over the face and neck once every 2 days. Summers may require more frequent application as skin is more oily then.

Result: It removes oil and dirt in a jiffy and what's great is that it does not irritate the skin or leave it extraordinarily dry. It's because it has Vitamin E and Aloe vera and they definitely do their job. I am using it in winters (whatever we have) as my skin tends to produce oil at times. As far as acne prevention is concerned, it fails here as I have had acne even after I started using it. But it does fight existing acne and helps cure it. It does not set in the pores and cleans dirt and makeup/residue with ease, leaving the skin feeling cool and calm.

Staying Power: -

Times Tested:  2 weeks
Cons: It does not prevent acne. The cap is not gripped enough to hold the liquid inside the bottle. Product may leak.

Anything Else:  It may irritate dry skin. Not recommended for normal to dry skin.

Made In:USA

    1. Use it by pouring some cleanser onto a cotton ball and gently wiping it on the face with circular motion. Use it before a shower or use and wash face right after if you're going out.

  5. I have used it bt it leaves my skin more doesnt clear acne
