Revision Skincare Brightening Facial Wash Reviews

Revision brightening facial wash

If your skin is prone to blemishes, you know how important it is to use a daily facial cleanser that will deal with blemishes and prevent new ones from appearing while also keeping your skin looking healthy and moisturized.

What I liked in the first place about Revision Skincare brightening facial wash and I decided to write a review about it is that it combines both AHA and BHA Acids.

AHA acids are well known for their ability to exfoliate dead skin cells and work more on the surface of the skin, improving its texture while BHA acids penetrate deeper into the skin, cleaning pores as well as exfoliating dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.

Therefore, a combination of these two acids provides better results at fighting acne breakouts and other types of blemishes like whiteheads, blackheads, etc. But is this product able to give us satisfactory results with no negative effects?

In this Revision skincare brightening wash review, we will check more about the formula of this product based on its ingredients and how well they work together, its pros and cons, and how positive users´ reviews are.

Company Claims

According to Revision Skincare, Revision skin brightening face wash is a daily facial cleanser that can be used twice a day to exfoliate dead surface skin cells and brighten the skin naturally.

It is suitable for most skin types but the Glycolic Acid as well as the Salicylic Acid it contains may be irritating to sensitive skin types. It should also not be used to remove eye-makeup.

In addition, the company recommends the use of a broad spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen before exposing your skin to the sun because the AHA and BHA acids that this product contains can trigger skin sensitivity to the sun.

Pros

  • Reputable 30 years old company creating products that have been featured in many famous magazines over the years.
  • Oil free formula that is good for acne or blemish prone types of skin.
  • Recommended by dermatologists.
  • You just need a nickel sized amount of product each time so a little goes a long way.
  • Quite popular product that gathers very positive users´ reviews.
  • It can also be used by men.

Cons

  • The combination of vitamin C with AHA acids is known to increase skin irritation and redness while at the same time, it reduces the antioxidant power of vitamin C. This product contains both AHA acids and vitamin C, which can be drying for some people´s skin.
  • Retinol can trigger skin irritation if combined with AHA and BHA Acids, so if you are already using a retinol product, you should avoid pairing it with this cleanser.
  • In the beginning, it is better to use it once a day to prevent dryness.
  • Some users may find its price a bit unappealing, but according to people, in some cases the price is a lot better on Amazon than buying from a dermatologist´s office. Also, the bottle lasts long so you get a good value for the price.

What Do Revision Brightening Face Wash Reviews Say?

The Positive

There are a lot of users that love using Revision brightening cleanser for different reasons. They say that it is an effective cleanser that is good for combination and oily skin since it reduces excess oil.

It also helps with pimples and even hormonal acne in some cases, keeping it under control. Some people have also reported positive results when it comes to fading sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation as well as freckles.

In addition, it adds brightness to the face gradually and makes skin smoother and softer. You only need a pea size amount of the product to produce a nice lather, making the bottle last long.

Besides, most people describe the smell as light, pleasant, clean and citrusy. The texture is gel like.

The Negative

Some users have experienced skin irritation, redness and a burning feeling after using this cleanser and a percentage of these people did not even have a sensitive skin.

As we saw before in the Cons Section of this article, vitamin C combined with AHA acids can trigger irritation, redness, dryness and even peeling, but also, if you are using retinol, you should not combine it with an AHA and BHA acid cleanser as the one we are reviewing here.

Those are probably the reasons why some people have experienced skin irritation and dryness after using this product.

Conclusion

Revision brightening facial wash

After digging deeper into the Revision Skincare brightening facial wash reviews, one can see that the reviews are either very positive or negative due to skin irritation or just the product not delivering what people had expected from it.

Personally, although I like the combination of Glycolic acid and Salicylic Acid in this cleanser to deeply cleanse the pores and get rid of the surface dead skin cells, I am not in favour of combining vitamin C with these acids, so in my case (I have a prone to blemishes somewhat sensitive skin) I would most probably avoid using this cleansing formula.
