Lately I have been itching to try an electronic facial cleanser like the Clarisonic or the new Olay Fresh Effects one. I mentioned this to my mother, hinting towards a possible birthday present in a few months (more for the Clarisonic which is a bit pricey) and she picked me up the L'Oreal Go 360 Clean Facial Cleanser to try first. For under $10, I figured it's worth a shot, even though I will likely still purchase the electronic Olay version in the near future (which retails for about $20 and is still a great alternative to the expensive Clarisonic).
She purchased the Anti-Breakout formula, which is one of 4 and comes in the orange bottle. She's also been using it herself for about 2 weeks and said she noticed a lot of tiny blemishes and redness come to the surface of her skin at first, and now it is clearing up more overall - good signs!
I used the cleanser yesterday and today, morning and night, and so far am liking how it works. It has a slightly cooling or tingly feeling when applying, which is not too strong but just enough to let you know it is cleansing your skin, which I like. There isn't much of a smell to the gel, and it comes out clear in color. The scrublet itself is alright - the bumps are small on most of it with a larger section at one end - personally, I can't feel much of a difference when using the different areas. It has a nice exfoliating feeling that isn't too extreme and I can definitely see it taking off all of my makeup.
To use it, I run the scrublet under water, splash my face with water, add a small drop of cleanser, and work into my face in circular motions. It lathers quite well and doesn't take much to do the entire face. The scrublet is relatively easy to hold, but I found I do prefer to use it over the sink as when I tried it in the shower I found it a little harder to hold on to - which is one reason I think I would prefer the Olay or Clarisonic with a longer handle.
After trying this formula for a few weeks I'll see how I feel about it - so far so good, but I may also try to use my regular Aveeno face wash with this scrublet and see if I notice a major difference from using my hands to lather in the shower and exfoliating afterwards.
So far I haven't noticed a huge difference in my skin other than a few tiny bumps along the sides of my nose - which could be what Mom also experienced with bringing blemishes to the surface and ridding of the oils and dirt, or could be a regular breakout. I will update in a week or two and let you know how I'm liking the effects then :) For now, I think this is definitely a good low budget alternative if you are looking for a face regimen that includes a step up from wipes or cleansing with your hands.
