Introduction: What is SkinB5? + Review

Hello everybody! Long time no see (and talk)!



Today I will be introducing SkinB5 and writing some short reviews on some of their products. But before we head off to the main of this post, I just wanted to say that I was experiencing a slump with my blog content and took time to focus on some other things in my life. As well, I am also writing for my university leaving less time for me to write on my blog. But hopefully I will be able to find a balance for it soon.

So without any further ado, let's get started!

What is SkinB5?

SkinB5 is an Australian company with a revolutionary natural acne fighting system. Their breakthrough formulas help balance skin oils and prevents acne before it starts. SkinB5 have won many awards for their acne products and is ideal for all skin types. SkinB5 contacted me a while back asking me to review their products so here are some first impressions.

SkinB5 Acne Control Cleansing Mousse




Foam cleansers are the most gentle out because it requires minimal rubbing to lather, since it is already foam! It is formulated to be gentle, non-drying and suitable for all skintypes. The smell is very pleasant and light due to the Aloe Vera and Green tea extracts. As well, this product is completely free to Benzoyl Peroxide to make sure it is not harsh for sensitive skin users. This cleanser instead uses salicylic acid which is beat for blackheads and inflamed spots. However it has been tested that salicylic acid in cleansers are not as effective as if it were in toners or products that can be left in.

SkinB5 Acne Control Moisturiser



The Acne Control Moisturiser is a light lotion, perfect for summer and day time use. The only trouble I have with this is I like my moisturisers to be thicker and this lotion dries too quickly. But this is good to use as a base before makeup. There is also no artificial scent.

 SkinB5 Skin Purifying Mask


I enjoy this skin purifying mask immensely. As an avid lover of clay masks, this SkinB5 alternative also helps draw out the impurities from the pores for a fresher and more vibrant complexion. This SkinB5 Skin Purifying mask can be used as a spot treatment or an all over face mask. I especially like to use this as a spot treatment to help dry out pimples and the effects are that it allows the pimple to heal quicker.

As part of the SkinB5 system, you are supposed to take their tablets and capsules. The extra strength tablets are to be taken three times a day with meals and then the Acne Control Capsules are used after to maintain the effects of the tablets. I have not been using the whole system for a long enough time to see any effects so I will come back later with a note on this medication. However the tablets are very big and if you have touble with swallowing pills, this might be a struggle. But of course you can crush them into your food or drinks to make your intake much easier.

SkinB5 Acne Control Caplets and Extra Strength Tablets








 With skincare, every individual's skin will react differently. How this product worked for me or someone else, will not necessarily be how you will find it. So it is very important to do heavy research before planning on trying a whole acne system. I wish everyone the best in their acne fighting battle!

I hope you enjoyed this first impressions post.

Until next time, annyeong~
