Sebamed products are very popular skin care products from Germany. Sebamed launched their Acne-Care line called Clear Face.I am reviewing two products for acne prone skin-Sebamed Cleansing Foam which is a cleanser and Sebamed Clear Face Gel Review.
My Skin Type:Oily and Acne prone skin.

Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Foam
Ingredients:Water, Cocamidopropylalbetainamide MEA Chloride, Cocotrimonium Mthosulfate, Sodium Lactate, Panthenol (Vitamin B5), Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol.
1)It is non-comedogenic.
2)It is a mild and treatment cleanser for acne.
3)It maintains the skin PH level at 5.5 thereby protecting skin acid mantle and formation of pimples.
4)It contains Montaline C40 which is a coconut oil derivative which combats bacteria.
5)It not only prevents acne but works on sebum control,blackheads.
6)It contains Panthenol which hydrates skin and minimises irritation.
7)It is paraben free.
8)It is suitable for all skin types.
9)Sodium Lactate lightens blemishes and acne marks.
1)Since it is a mild cleanser,proper and thorough cleansing is not its best property.It is best to use when the face is relatively clean or follow up with a neutral cleanser/face wash.
2)It is bit expensive but entire bottle will last 2-3 months.
3)It can render face bit dry so follow up with a moisturiser.
Directions for Use:
Take a pump or two of the foam and apply it all over face.Leave it for 5 minutes and rinse with water.
