When it comes to moisturisers, I always go for something that doesn’t make any extravagant claims. I don’t want it to have active ingredients unless they fall under the category of humectants, emollients or occlusives. There’s one exception though, yves rocher zero blemish gel cream.
(comes in 10ml tester size too)
As you might have guessed by now, almost every serum or cream promising to fight acne is going to have salicylic acid in it, yves rocher is no exception.
Finding salicylic acid in a serum or moisturiser is hardly a novelty, Sunday riley has it, bravura, clean & clear, Neutrogena, and the list goes on. What interests me in the yves rocher zero blemish gel cream is bailkal powder.
When that time of the month is approaching, my skin will look for any and every excuse to break out. Daily exfoliation is part of my daily routine, so any zits that try to pop up are flattened before they’ve lived a day on my face.
Now that my skin can’t surprise me with a breakout, it settles for the next best thing, looking dull and greasy. When it does I’m always ready with my zero blemish gel cream.
As the salicylic cleans out my pores, baikal powder soaks up the extra oil my skin produces and visibly refines the texture of my skin.
The mattifying effects are incremental meaning you will need less and less product to achieve the same effect with each passing day. While I use this as a treatment, I don’t use any other moisturiser on top and when my period arrives, my skin normalizes and I return to my usual routine. You could of course use it everyday as a night cream.
Also in the same range is this serum.
Thanks for stopping by!
