Quinoderm Antibacterial Facewash Review

I have never suffered from acne but boil-esque spots often became a problem throughout my teens. In fact, they sometimes do now after spouts of unhealthy eating or leaving my make up on overnight. Quinoderm 5% Acne Cream was my saviour in these cases, so when I saw that Quinoderm wanted bloggers to review their antibacterial facewash*, I jumped at the chance. 

The facewash itself is blue in colour and smells much like the cream. For those of you that haven't tried it, it's very chemical-like, as in you can tell it's not from Clarins or Benefit. It's there to do a job and it doesn't half do it. This facewash leaves your skin feeling fresh, clean, but it no way dry. I would even say that skin feels somewhat moisturised after using this. It leaves a lovely feeling, reducing pores and clearing spots in a matter of days.

As a beauty blogger, who would I be if I didn't comment on the packaging? As with the colour and scent of the product, you can see that the packaging isn't there to look pretty, it's there to show you what the product is all about. You squeze the bottle to get any product out, however I'd have preferred a pump, just to make it easier and to prevent spillage! The major fault I found with this packaging is the paper wrap around label. I tend to take my facewashes into the shower and this packaging clearly wasn't made for that. It's started to peel in places, I may have to peel it off soon!

Nevertheless, I can't fault product quality. I'm so impressed.

I'm so glad that I was able to try this - I'm also very pleased that it's as brilliant as I wanted to be.

Have you tried any Quinoderm products? You can find out more about the facewash here.

Love, Steph xxxx

  1. Ooh I've never tried their facewash but their spot cream was my saviour when I was younger and suffering from intense acne (which I eventually discovered was from a dairy intolerance). I still have a tube just incase but haven't used it in years. In fact it's probably so old I shouldn't have it any more haha.


I read every comment and would love to hear your opinions!
