Cetaphil Derma Control Oil Control Foam Wash & Moisturizer

While talking with a friend, she mentioned that this is the year she's going to step up her skincare game- and by step up, I mean start a regime. To say she's a newbie is an understatement, but lucky for her, she's got a blogger friend who can help her out *coughs*. It's also great timing because I've been testing out the Cetaphil Derma Control Oil Control Foal Wash & Moisturizer which are perfect additions to any skincare routine. Read on for more info and to win a set for yourself!

The Cetaphil Derma Control range is specifically formulated for oily, combination, and/or blemish prone skin as they contain an oil-absorbing zinc complex to remove excess oil all while improving the appearance of skin. I love Cetaphil, as they make no-nonsense products that work really well and are easy on the budget- you really can't get much better than that.

The Cetaphil Derma Control Oil Control Foam Wash is a simple foam face wash that dispenses from the bottle as a light, airy foam. The soap-free cleanser is super gentle on skin- it's like cleansing with a cloud!- but goes to work deep down in pores thanks to zinc coceth and zinc gluconate. The zinc components work as both a soothing astringent and remove excess oil from skin without leaving it stripped and dry- which can actually lead your skin to produce even more oil, which is the opposite of what you want.

For such a light cleanser, this really does an effective job of cleansing. I like to use it after a cleansing oil (to remove makeup) or on it's own in the morning, and it leaves skin perfectly clean and balanced. While most Cetaphil products are unscented, this does have a light fresh scent that is very subtle, but nice.

Of course you're going to want to moisturize, which is where Cetaphil Derma Control Oil Control Moisturizer SPF 30 comes into play. First off, love the that it's got SPF 30! SPF is easy to forget, so it's great to have it already included in your moisturizer. Along with SPF, it's formulated with that zinc complex (mentioned above) which works to absorb excess oil created through the day and leave skin perfectly hydrated and matte. The moisturizer has light feel on skin which is non-greasy and easily absorbed.

My skin has been undergoing a change the past few months, as I've moved out of constantly dry town and now reside in a more combination area. As such, I have noticed my skin does get a little shiny mid-day and do have oil in areas I never did before. The combination of the cleanser and moisturizer has completely eliminated my need for a mid-day shine check as it does leave my skin naturally matte.
