Priori Advanced AHA Gentle Facial Cleanser – MY Product Review
A cleanser that gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin without compromising the skin barrier function.
Contains 13% LCA Complex (12% Lactic Compound – L Lactic Acid & Sodium Lactate + 1% MFAS – Multi Functional Antioxidant Sequence) in a gentle, light lathering cleanser that gently exfoliates the skin, leaving skin soft, soothed and radiant. Gently removes make-up and daily residue.
A special combination of antioxidants and lactic acid to provide superior anti-ageing skin benefits.
– Smoothes & heals
I was first introduced to the Priori AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) range some time ago when I began working as a cosmetic clinic manager. This was the very first experience I had of using cosmeceuticals skin care products. Looking back, I think it was a great range as an introduction to advanced skin care products, as it does not contain an aggressive range of ingredients, and it is gentle, yet still advanced. Additionally, the range benefits many concerns like hydration, exfoliation and anti-ageing.
Alpha Hydroxy Acids have been used for thousands of years as a skin rejuvenating product. Cleopatra is reported to have bathed in sour milk (lactic acid) to improve her complexion.
Lactic acid increases skin moisture content and the skin’s natural exfoliation and renewal rate, resulting in a more youthful and healthy appearance.
AHA’s also have a knack of boosting collagen production to help tackle fine lines.
If you are new to AHA’s, start by introducing one product at a time before making the switch to an all AHA-based skin care routine. Priori AHA gentle cleanser is an ideal product to start with.
A slight tingling feeling is normal and should settle within a few seconds, but I always recommend doing a patch test before applying any AHA-based product to the face.
I think this is a great cleanser because after using it, your skin always feels clean and fresh, but not dry and tight.
Priori AHA Gentle Cleanser is creamy and is good for normal and drier skin types, but not so much for oily skin types. It is ideal for rosacea and sensitive skin types.
One pump is enough to lather on your face which makes this product last a long time. You can use it to remove make-up too, and it also rinses away instantly leaving no residue behind.
