I have a very biased fondness towards cleansers that work hard on their own instead of making me rub my cheeks to eternity for a squeaky clean shine. And a cleanser that tones as well is a cherry on the topping. Now an effective cleanser that is a potent toner and comes under $10 calls for a celebration.
Formula 10.0.6’s So Totally Clean, Deep Pore Cleanser says for young skin on the tin. Who makes it to the young skin bracket is pretty debatable and I certainly am the forerunner in denying my skin as not young, even though I fall in the 25-30 bracket. My first encounter with Formula 10.0.6 was with their face pack which was quite a bargain itself , so I thought I’d try their prime product which is the So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser Formula. So Totally Clean, the first product of the FORMULA 10.0.6 line, was originally developed in 1933 and sold exclusively by pharmacists. So when I saw this one for $8.99, it was a no-brainer. I wasn’t sure how it will perform but a decent duration of testing has given me enough data to jot down here for facts.
It is a cleanser cum toner that gives a feeling of utter cleanliness once you are done wiping your face with it (I usually do it after removing my makeup). It is great for post threading consequences which in my case are rashes and pimples. It also dries out pimples when applied a couple of times during the day on the pimple spot. Apart from that it works as an astringent that cleans the pores thoroughly and kills any surface bacteria.
I have to admit that it is quiet strong in smell as well as in action as it contains alcohol, so if you have a sensitive skin, this one’s not for you. Formula 10.0.6 has another cucumber variant for sensitive skin. Though it is pretty strong and does dry out the skin if not used with caution, I still love it because when used in right proportion, it delivers!
For $ 8.99 at its original price, I’d say it’s a pretty good catch especially for someone with oily and blemish prone skin.
