Yves Rocher (7 April 1930 – 26 December 2009) was a French businessman and founder of the cosmetics company that bears his name. He was a pioneer of the modern use of natural ingredients in cosmetics. The Yves Rocher Pure System Clean Pore Cleanser is one of his many products and this product promises to;
- Purifies skin.
- The Plus: Its soap-free formula, which won’t dry skin. Paraben free formula.
- Eliminates excess sebum.
- Purifies skin and clears pores.
- Prevents the reappearance of skin problems with its exfoliating action.
How to use:
Morning and evening, apply to damp face, massaging gently.
Then rinse with warm water. Then use the Clarifying Toner.
I have found the effect of this product is better in conjunction to the other Yves Rocher Pure System products. (lotion and Toner) I would also not advise to use daily for reasons I will explain in my review.
My review: Does it do all that it promises?
The Yves Rocher Pure System products were introduced to me at a time when my skin was acting up, and being someone who has never had acne I was completely bummed and didn’t know what to do. So yes, I still consider these products my lifesaver. I had hormonal pimples and they just kept multiplying and leaving me with horrible scars. I started using this product in conjunction with the lotion, which you can read its review here, and the face cleanser scrub, which you can also read its review here.
It really did help with reducing the pimples, my skin was looking radiant and had a healthy glow to it after using the Yves Rocher Pure System Clean Pore Cleanser. One thing I noticed a few weeks after I started using the cleanser, was that it was aggravating my skin.
If I slip up on my routine and I start to get a pimple, I would rush to the bathroom and scrub the life out of my face. Anything to get my face looking fresh and clean again. Little did I know I was actually just messing things up further. The one pimple I had would get sore and sometimes even multiply, I didn’t know what I was doing wrong, so I stopped using the Yves Rocher Pure System Clean Pore Cleanser for a while and I noticed, my face stop getting worse.
However, I didn’t have that healthy glow that it gave me. So, after a while I went back to it and this time around, I applied the product gently. Do not scrub your face with exfoliators, it will mess you up, I learned that the hard way. I also learned that it worked way better if I didn’t use it every day. This is 6 months later and I still have this product and I use it, but only twice a week. That is my sweet spot, at most 3 times a week and nothing more.
It still leaves my skin radiant but without the abrasion I was causing it the first time I started using it. Sometimes less is actually more. Let me know if you are thinking of getting this product, or if you’ve used it already, what are your thought on it? You can read my review of the lotion and the toner.
