I recently tried some products from the brand asap for the first time, and I really loved them, so when Soho Skincare offered some different products for me to try, I happily accepted. 

The asap Daily Facial Cleanser, is a very gentle cleanser that lathers up into a soft foam that gently cleanses your skin, removing all makeup (although I didn't try it on my eye makeup, always using a specific eye makeup remover on my sensitive eyes). The formula is oil free so it is perfect for combination and oily skin like mine, and in fact, because it also contains AHA, it not only removes makeup and impurities, it also gently loosens and removes dead skin cells, - hence giving the skin a gentle chemical exfoliation to reveal clear, brighter and smoother skin.

also gently foams to cleanse your skin and remove make-up (including eye make-up). It washes away impurities in one action, without drying or irritating your skin.

I personally like to se it as my second cleanse, after having removed my makeup with a specific makeup remover, as it thereby gives my skin a deep cleanser. And it immediately leaves your skin feeling soft and noticeably smoother, and also less greasy, so in my case, I felt that it also helped clear my skin and stop it from breaking out.

The asap Daily Exfoliating Scrub with AHA is a dual action facial exfoliator that contains both tiny beads to manually scrub the skin, as well as AHA to chemically exfoliate the skin and gently remove dead skin. The exfoliating scrub is very gentle, so it can still be used daily, and personally I prefer to use at night before bed so I know my skin is completely clean and free from makeup, build up of excess sebum etc - and after use, my skin is left incredibly soft and smooth, and over time my skin also seems more refined, as well as my skincare products seem to absorb better and quicker into my skin. But I have also noticed, as because my skin also appears to be less greasy, it also means that my makeup stays put looking nicer for longer.

Finally, the asap Moisturising Daily Defence is a moisturiser suitable for all skin types, which is designed to replenish essential moisture in the skin. It contains among others Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide to help increase moisture levels in the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as encouraging the development of collagen to improve the skin's elasticity and even out the skin tone.

I am yet to see the moisturiser have any effect on either lines, wrinkles or skin tone, but I do enjoy using this lightweight moisturiser as it absorbs quickly and easily into my skin, and without any greasiness. It is, however, clearly giving my skin intense moisture, which shows in my skin feeling and looking soft and smooth, and with a healthy glow. And as it is so light, it doesn't seem to make my skin feel congested or make it break out, which is always a bonus - especially seeing it also contains SPF, which I often suspect is the main culprit in making my skin flare up! And speaking of SPF, I do love that it comes with a massive broad spectrum SPF50 to protect my skin from harmful UVA and UVB, to prevent further premature ageing of my skin.

Overall I am really enjoying using these products from asap, and can certainly see myself purchasing these again, in particularly the Facial Cleanser and the Exfoliating Scrub have won me over!
