I’ve always wanted to try Sircuit Skin. I’d like to say it’s because it’s an all-natural line with organic ingredients, but I have to admit it’s the playful product names and modern packaging that really caught my eye.
So, I started with a product I was hoping to love, a facial cleanser for problem skin, Sircuit Skin Savior. And happily, it hasn’t disappointed.
Like any good acne cleanser, this one uses Salicylic Acid, a Beta Hydroxy Acid, to gently exfoliate the skin. But as a bonus, it also contains Lactic Acid, a gentle Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which also helps to keep the pores clear through exfoliation and skin softening. Both of these acids can also improve the appearance of aging skin.
After using it for a few weeks, I have noticed a difference. It has been keeping most of my acne under control and my pores appear smaller. Because it’s free of sulfates, my skin doesn’t feel tight or dry after I use it, just clean and comfortable. The clean feeling is a result of the Organic Peppermint Oil and Tea Tree Oil (great pick me ups in the morning and great for your sinuses). The comfort is the result of soothing ingredients like Meadowfoam Seed Essential Oil, Shea Butter, and Aloe.
But that’s not all, this cleanser even has natural antioxidants, Organic Olive Leaf Extract and Totarol, to ward off free radicals seeking to destroy healthy skin cells. It’s free of artificial colors, fragrance, preservatives and is of course cruelty free.
The only drawback I found is that the formula tends to separate (a common problem of natural products), but give it a good shake and it will mix back together. Oh, and be careful not to get it around your eyes, the peppermint will cause burning and irritation. Besides that, it’s a great find and I’ll definitely keep using it to keep my skin clear and happy.
