With combination skin prone to breakouts, cleansing and looking after my skin is the key to keeping it as healthy as possible - and a good cleaner is essential to keeping my skin as clean as possible, and should one of those pesky breakouts appear, a good blemish treatment is also vital. Lately I've been enjoying the Mesoestetic Purifying Mousse and the Imperfection Control.

The Mesoestetic Purifying Mousse is a cleansing mousse - actually it is a liquid, but when you pump it out of the bottle it comes out as a mousse - and it is designed to purify and cleanse blemish prone and seborrhoeic skin, so it's perfect for my combination skin when it is having one of those troublesome periods.

The cleanser is extremely light, yet this airy foam is packed with active ingredients such as;
  • Urea to soothe irritation while moisturising and softening the skin.
  • Chlorhexidine to inhibits the growth of micro-organisms.
  • Enoxolone to reduce epidermal redness, inflammation and swelling.
In addition it also contains glucosides and refreshing agents that cleanse impurities from the skin, leaving it feeling soft and supple.

It is best used morning and night to treat and remove excess sebum and impurities from the skin - and you simply wet the face and massage it into the skin with your fingers before rising it off with water. I am unsure it is any good at removing makeup, because to be honest, at night, i prefer to use my makeup removers, and then follow with this cleanser to give my skin a good clean, and ensure that it benefits from the active ingredients.

Often cleansers for oily and blemish prone skin are very harsh and drying on the skin, but not this cleanser - it is very gentle, and after use, my skin is left looking clean and refined and is soft, without any irritation or tightness.

When emergency strikes and blemishes pop up, which sadly they have for me a little more often lately, I think mainly due to immense stress in my life, I have been reaching for the Mesoestetic Imperfection Control.

This Imperfection control has been formulated for local treatment of emerging or rebellious blemish breakouts. The tiny tube contains among others;
  • m.acne complex™, a unique combination of active substances selected specifically for their complementary ability to address the numerous factors that affect blemish-prone and seborrhoeic skins.
  • Bexareintyl complex, a retinoid with chemoexfoliant and cellular renewing effects on the pilosebaceous follicle. It also has depigmenting properties that mitigate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation after acne lesions.
  • Enoxolene, which reduces epidermal redness and swelling
  • Salicylic acid and mandelic acid, which gives the skin deep cleansing renews blemish-prone and seborrhoeic skins.
The actual cream is white, yet goes on to the skin clear, although it does slightly help conceal and take some of the redness out of blemishes as well as it leaves the skin with a matte finish. Unlike other blemish treatments, it also has next to no scent, and doesn't have that stinging sensation on the skin. 

This Imperfection Control really has done wonders for a couple of stubborn pimples under the skin that I've been struggling to get rid of - after just a few applications they have significantly reduced in size and cleared up not long after. And all without irritating or drying out my skin. I also really like the concealing effect, which makes it perfect for using during the day under makeup too.
