Azulene Foam Gel Active
My battle with sensitive skin and rosacea is well documented throughout the blog, which kicked off during Peri-Menopause, therefore I’ve always one ear cocked for suitable skincare products and was introduced to Claudia Fallah products by Tracey McAlpine of Fighting Fifty. Knowing my plight she asked if I’d take part in a trial of Claudia Fallah ‘Intensive Repair Crème’, a moisturiser specifically designed for problematic skin, I had fabulous results which you can read in full in this article. Resulting in Claudia kindly sending me her best seller ‘Azulene Foam Gel Active’, a cleansing foam to test. Here’s my honest findings…
Firstly, this cleanser is mighty deceptive, as dispenses in a light foam which gives the impression it’ll not be robust enough to remove all impurities and make-up, felt far too light and airy. But it’s super effective, one pump left my skin feeling refreshed, throughly cleansed and soft. I love the lightness, unlike a cream or gel cleanser the foam feels so gentle on the skin, with a beautiful subtle fresh aroma, which must be the natural ingredients coming through.
My skin’s in the best condition it’s been in for a very long time, which Claudia’s ‘Azulene Foam Gel Active’ has greatly contributed to, along with diet – eating avocados like there’s about to be world shortage announcement! In my bathroom cabinet I’ve three other cleanser, all for sensitive skin and for the most I’ve been fairly happy with, but by far ‘Azulene Foam Gel Active’ stands out as the kindest and most effective. Needless to say it’s staying and elevated to my absolute must have skin-care product…. It really is that good.
It retails at £38 for 100ml – I use one pump in the morning and evening, anticipating that it will last about 3months so for me it’s great value.
