After mentioning L'Oreal Pure Zone Pore Unclogging Scrub Cleanser in my Bliss review yesterday, I figured I might as well follow up with a review. Not only is this L'Oreal cleanser ($6.49) one of my favorite drugstore finds, but it's also similar to the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash ($22) that many of you said was out of your price rang.
Like Bliss's product, L'Oreal's cleanser has a blue, gel-like texture interspersed with tiny exfoliating beads to unclog your pores. L'Oreal's cleansing beads are actually much larger than the Bliss beads, so it feels like the L'Oreal wash is more effective. It's hard to say if it is, though, so
I've used this product on my combination skin for months on end, and I really do love the way it feels. It has a slight cooling sensation and a refreshing scent that really wakes me up in the morning. I only wish that L'Oreal Pore Unclogging Cleanser were a bit foamier (like Bliss), because the lack of lather probably makes me use more than I need.
Though I didn't notice a dramatic difference in the quality of my complexion after using this product, it certainly didn't have any negative effects. L'Oreal Pore Unclogging Cleanser doesn't leave my skin too oily or too dry, and it's great for controlling breakouts. If you like Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash, you don't be disappointed in this alternative.
