Last year I started laser hair removal and one of the steps they told me to do was to exfoliate the area with a AHA scrub. At first I started to use Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It, but after a few months I realised it just wasn't cutting it so a quick search to the internet and here we are with The Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser a very pricey cleanser but is it worth it?
My main issue of concern was to remove as much dead skin cells as possible. I use this cleanser every week. It doesn't state on the bottle not to be used more than that but knowing my sensitive skincare issues I only use this on a weekly basis and let me just tell you this is 100% worth the money. I was using the Soap & Glory AHA cleanser before this but always felt like it never did much for my skin however just after one use of this cleanser I seen a difference in my skin straight away.
The cleanser itself contains Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid & Glycolic Acid which is meant to combine to buff off and polish the skin leaving a brighter, younger looking complexion, it is also meant to over time improve cell-turnover by dissolving skin cell buildup. The cleanser also contains Jojaba beads that help exfloiate the skin. You can really feel like you are doing something while using this cleanser. Although the cleanser is exfoliating etc it is super friendly on sensitive acne prone skin and I have had no issues using it.
I literally cannot recommend this cleanser enough, it has literally changed the texture of my skin and has defiantly helped with laser hair removal results. After use it leaves the skin super soft and makeup application after using this product is flawless. I am at the moment suffering with acne scarring and I feel like this product is helping that, not dramatically but enough to keep me satisfied to keep using it. Yes this product is on the pricey side of cleansers but I feel its worth the high price tag and as you literally need the tiniest amount to do your whole face it will last you a long time.
Just as a side note, I mentioned laser hair removal in this post and while I have painted the image of that fact I get my entire face lasered...I don't I just get the chin and moustache area done and for me it was the best decision I ever made, if you would like a separate post on it let me know.
