I can't be the only person who's skin just seems to have completely broken out during lock down? It's like Dermalogica heard my problems and sent along their latest launch the Active Clay Cleanser to see if it can save my poor skin and combat these pesky blemishes I've been suffering from.

Now blemishes can pop up for all sorts of reasons and I think that mine may be due to dehydration and not being as consistent with my skincare routine. Before the Active Clay cleanser arrived on my doorstep, in my usual skincare routine (when I'd been consistent with doing it) I'd been using the Special Cleansing gel to cleanse my skin but with this flare up of blemishes the usual face wash just didn't seem to be cutting it so I was really excited to put this one to the test.

What is the Active Clay cleanser?
The Active Clay cleanser is a dual-action charcoal and clay cleanser which helps to actively cleanse and deeply purify skin. It contains Kaolin clay which helps to absorb excess oil and activated Binchotan charcoal which absorbs impurities to help balance skin. As well as having the charcoal and clay, they've also included botanical lipids and Murumuru seed also help to remove excess oil whilst protecting the skins natural lipid barrier and Aloe and citrus extracts to help purify the skin and keep it smooth and revitalized.

My Experiences
Whilst trying it out over the past couple of weeks I've been using it morning and night and I've been really impressed by it. I don't often use charcoal or clay products because my skin usually ends up feeling stripped and dry pretty much immediately after I've used them. However with the Active Clay cleanser I didn't experience any of this, I used it as a face wash and I also applied a slightly thicker layer and left it on whilst in the shower as a bit of a face mask and either way my skin felt smooth and soft without feeling dry or tight. The product itself smells amazing, it doesn't smell like you're using a clay cleanser at all, for me it actually smells citrusy and refreshing so it's a pleasure to use. I usually don't like how thick and heavy clay cleansers tend to feel so it was a pleasant surprise to use as it's lightweight and foams up nicely.  

I've been using it morning and night for two weeks and I noticed my blemishes drastically reduced and the oiliness I tend to suffer from around my nose and chin had improved significantly. I was so surprised that after two weeks of use it didn't aggravate my dry skin or leave it feeling extra tight. I am definitely going to be cycled it into the cleansing routine when my skin is having a particularly bad time with blemishes and I'm actually going to start using it on a semi-regular basis as a face mask instead of the clay face masks I sometimes used to use. It's priced at £35.00 for 150ml and honestly I think it's worth every penny!
