NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash Review

The NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash ($32) is a potent PH balanced foaming cleanser for people who prefer a deep anti aging face cleanser that doesn't create irritation. This is made up of 18% Glycolic Acid, and claims to reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles, something not many face cleansers can promise.

The product itself is already self foaming, so no heavy rubbing or lathering is required. One pump should do the trick, however I found myself pumping twice because my face has been particularly dry and patchy lately. (I chalk that up to the weather change) There's not much of a smell, which I'm partial to. I don't like cleansers with a heavey fragrance or for that matter any fragrance at all.

Now let's keep in mind this is not your typical face cleanser. It contains powerful ingredients such as chemical exfoliators, so I would not recommend using this with other products that contain alicylic acid, a beta-hydroxyacid, or retinol. I used this wash alongside my daily moisturizers and serum. I'm only using this once a day because I don't want to exfoliate too much, I think something like this should be used maybe once a day if not just a couple times a week.

So does it work? I haven't noticed a difference in lines or wrinkles, YET, but NeoStrata can never do no wrong in my book. They are still one of my favorite skin care companies, I haven't came across a bad product from their original product line, or Exuviance, which is a miracle worker. I would recommend this product for people who have dry, flaky skin, looking for a good exfoliation. Now if you're a sun junkie, this product probably isnt' for you. Because of the ingredients, staying out of the sun is essential because you're more likely to burn while using a product containing Glycolic acid. So if you haven't found the cleanser for you yet, you should give this one a try.

Although I haven't seen too much of a change in lines and wrinkles. this product does make my skin healthier, cleaner and gives it a nice healthy glow. Not many cleansers do much more then what they are MEANT to do, Cleanse! So this one has scored major points in my book, and the fabulous instant foam isn't too shabby either!!!
