Last face wash brand you may ever buy

By Ash

from LaVista, Nebraska

Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

I must admit I bought this and another product from Skyn on a whim about a month ago because the other brand I was looking for was. out of stock.

I read an immense amount of reviews where the people say this did this or that for my skin or complexion in a matter of days and I just smirk and occasionally roll my eyes.

Well after buying an unknown amount of products over the past 2 years since approaching and since passing 40 and realizing I haven't taken my skin care regime as serious as I could have been and being either let down or finding other products to be just ok.

This is only one of possibly two or three products that haven't just met my high expectations but exceeded them. I lathers up like no other products I've ever used, the scent is just enough but not overpowering like some others may be and it left my skin feeling cleaner and more refreshed than it has felt in years.

Now mind you I understand that skin falls into as far a I know 3 distinct categories dry, oily, combination but we all have different lifestyles, where we live, what we eat that effects our skin etc, so for me and my skin it's a match made in heaven and I do not see myself buying or needing to try something different to for a very long time.

I hope this helps you as well as it has me but if it doesn't, don't give up because the product for you is out there somewhere.

    Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

    I started using this face wash twice a day almost 2 weeks ago. Since then, my face is smoother, has more even skin tone and my breakouts are much less. I applied the fine size amount, as recommended, and it was almost too much. The entire line is definitely worth the price. And this product feels incredible when you follow up with the daily face lotion or the oxygen night cream!

        Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

        Okay so, for a few years now I've been trying to master the perfect skin care routine; People always say try witch hazel, etc. but I've tried and tried every single thing everyone has suggested. So when I received this in my ipsy bag I was in love. I love love love this face wash. It cleared my skin up so quickly (oily, sensitive, acne prone).

        This is an honestly amazing face wash and I love it so much, I've been trying to purchase it for months now but it's always sold out.

        My only true complaint is the price is a little high, but I guess if it's gonna work--that's better than spending $$$ on drugstore cleansers trying to find the right one (which didn't work at all for me). ALSO, that it's ALWAYS sold out on this website and the actual company's. It's a little annoying--they're destroying my skin

              I have normal skin with a slightly oily Tzone and occasional breakouts. The few breakouts I did have cleared up after the first time using this cleanser! It doesn't dry out my skin and leaves it very clean feeling. I love it!

              This is the first cleanser I have tried that did not dry out my skin or leave it feeling stripped, dry, itchy, or exacerbate the flakes that sometimes appear on my forehead. And I barely use a nickel sized amount each time!

                Comments about Skyn Iceland Glacial Face Wash:

                It is really difficult to find a good cleanser for oily skin that doesn't make my skin super greasy. However, after getting a sample size of this, I absolutely loved it and decided to buy the full product. This cleanser eliminated some blackheads, softened my skin, eased redness, and evened my skin tone. I couldn't recommend this cleanser enough. I'm really glad I bought it. A little goes a long way, so this will last a good while.

                    This foaming cleanser detoxifies and purifies without stripping skin of its natural moisture which would ensure a beautiful glow and help with the fight against acne. I would also recommend using our Nordic Skin Peel after cleansing to help reduce acne scars.

                    The Glacial Face Wash is a mild cleanser that purifies without stripping skin of its natural moisture, but it is recommended to try using it once and day and see how your skin responds, and then bumping the usage up to twice a day.
