Skin Care Review: L'Oreal PureZone

by Jake

Adverse Effects

Dries out some minor blemishes and smoothes the skin, noticebly the T-zone area.

Strong formulation, increased oiliness, reddness, irritation, and number of breakouts.

I bought the whole PureZone skincare line products in hope to eliminate my breakouts for good, but I noticed that the PureZone's cleanser and toner has a formulation which was too strong and this increases the oiliness and redness of my skin. In addition, I have also used the anti-imperfection moisturizer since it was oil-free and demartologist-tested, but I found out that after a month's use my breakouts has actually increased a lot.

Despite being a demartologist-tested product, it has certainly worsened my condition a lot, and instead of "smoothing" out my skin, it has actually caused my skin to appear oilier, especially my nose.

Highly not recommended. Avoid buying it.
