Unlike other cleansers, this milky-gel hybrid doesn't lather up but it is packed with Vitamin C which makes excess oil soluable, lifting it away alongside dull skin cells and everyday grime. Use it in the morning so your moisturiser properly penetrates.
If your skin resembles an oil-slicked beach come 1pm, you need to add this French pharmacy favourite to your beauty regime. The foam may be as light as a cloud but it dissolves excess sebum in seconds and leaves skin feeling matte, rather than dry and tight.
