Break outs are a part of life but if you’d rather they not be try adding one of our top congestion cancelling cleansers to your skincare arsenal!

Pricey vs Priceline: Cleanser for Oily Skin

If you’re battling oily and congested skin like I am again now after switching contraceptions (I swear my skin thinks it’s 18 again and not in a good way!) here’s our pick of cleanser for oily skin to keep those boils at bay!

Pricey: Dermalogica Medibac Clearing Skin Wash (250ml) – $49.50

The Medibac range by Dermalogica is specifically designed for adult congestion and acne. Unlike many acne washes they understand that just because we need to keep oil at bay we also need a real adult cleanser that’s not going to strip us of all moisture, leading to dry skin and therefore pre-mature wrinkles.

The cleansing lotion is beautiful. It’s super soft and delicate on the skin, relying on Salicyclic Acid and antiseptic to do exactly what it says it’ll do – clean pores perfectly.

I had a few minor spots the day or two after first trying it, that’s when you know it’s cleaning those pores well!

Priceline: Cetaphil Dermacontrol Foam Wash (236ml) – $15.99

Just like Dermalogica, Cetaphil aims to prevent breakouts without drying out the skin completely.

It does a great job at keeping oil at bay with the foam cleanser definitely making you feel squeaky clean.

The Verdict:

Squeaky clean says it all. I don’t want my skin to squeak and feel tight. I much prefer the supple — I look a bit like Honey BooBoo bounce achieved with the Dermalogica.

Although it’s pricier to start off with, I also found the Dermalogica product to go further and loved the sleek packaging.

Absolutely loving the experience and results, after being worried about my skin changing so rapidly it’s at least good to know there’s products out there that can take care of it.

Do you suffer from congestion or breakouts? What’s your top tip to prevent them?

    Oh my LORD I hear you on the switching contraceptives –> crazy skin. I swear I’m spending more time googling ‘how to treat huge painful blind pimples’ than I am doing anything else Not. Fun!!! Will have to try the Medibac wash, sounds like just what I need right now!

  2. I’m a huge fan of Dermalogica. I switched over 12 months ago and my skin has never been better. Yes, it’s a tad pricey but a little goes a long way. I purchase a 250ml bottle every 6-7 months.
