Plainly speaking, unsightly and unwanted spots with chapped, red skin are unpleasant to look at and to endure—at any age. So if this sounds like you, acne-prone with sensitive skin, this is one of the best basic cleansers around. Ideal for normal to oily skin types, the Spectro Jel experts say it works because its gentle formulation purifies and tones your skin, while simultaneously penetrating your pores to remove the dirt, oil and bacteria that can cause blemishes. We agree, but that’s not the sole reason why we like it. The gel-based cleanser is non-comedogenic, which means it won’t clog our pores, so over time and with a regular routine of washing and rinsing twice daily, we will actually produce fewer blackheads and pimples. Plus, it is fragrance-, dye-, sodium-, sulphate-, paraben-, lanolin- and soap-free, so it won’t strip our face of its natural moisture, either. We appreciate that kind of magic: it conjures clear, smooth, soft and healthy skin, while redness, itchiness and irritation simply disappear. You can thank us later.
