Age: 19-24

Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium, Cool

Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium

Eyes: Brown

Skin: Sensitive, dry, prone to (allergic) irritation. Note, I don't have much acne.

My skin is stripped dry very easily by harsh cleansers, but I also have blackheads on my nose which my usual 12% glycolic acid cleanser can't do anything about it since it's only soluble in water. I use this to cleanse the oily middle of my face, it works very well! I use a serum and hydrating cream right after.
...
PROS: My blackheads are gone after a few uses (product has 1% salicylic acid. It also contains >1% citric Acid which is good for surface exfoliation)/ Mild physical exfoliation with the small silca particles, Very cheap, no parabens or phthalates
...
CONS: Contains Menthyl lactate (Less irritating than Menthol but I'd rather not have the *refreshed feeling* at all).
