Too Alkaline. Dried me like a raisin.
I had an unfortunate allergic reaction to face mask fibers. The redness and irritation as well as little bumps took a while to manifest so I didn't think that it was because of the mask/s. For a few weeks I just kept on with my usual routine which included a mild BHA exfoliant, not knowing that I was further compromising my already sensitized skin barrier. It got to a point that my once oily skin felt tight. So I went looking for products that had snail mucin coz I heard about the healing/soothing properties and I found this. I tried it a few times and if my face was the usual oil factory that it is, this would probably be okay or even then I feel it might still be a bit drying. SO, you can imagine what it did to my skin in its current state. I now have squeaky clean, super dry, irritated skin with a few dots of painful cystic acne, which I never had before. I know that these things aren't just because of the cleanser, but it clearly made things worse. Also, if I had known that this had a PH level of 9, I would have known to avoid it altogether.
