SenZen Perfect Balance Oil Control Energy Cleanser- reader reviewed
I’ve been testing Perfect Balance Oil Control Energy Cleanser for 4 weeks, mornings and nights. It has light, clean smell and foam rather well for almost natural cleanser.
According to SenZen website, it perfect for oily and acne skin as it gently exfoliates and rejuvenates skin. I have to agree with the oily skin part. I have normal skin with slight oily T-zone but for various reasons my skin decided it wants to be dry. The cleanser left my skin feeling clean but with uncomfortable tightness. It is definitely more suitable for somebody with oily to very oily skin.
After using it for over a month I didn't see any long-lasting results. It didn't make my skin worse but it also didn't make it better. It did help to keep occasional breakout to minimum. I like this cleanser, it has so many wonderful antioxidants, although I don’t see how it would exfoliate since there is no exfoliating ingredients. But, like Marta and Copley I didn’t feel this cleanser lived up its name. It is certainly not perfect; it contains perfume and food colorings.
On more positive note, this cleanser will last forever. Because it lathers so well, I only needed a dime size to cover the entire face and neck. I could easily see it lasting for at least 7-8 month, if not more. I am going back to La Vie Celeste but will revisit it in the summer when my skin is oilier.
