April Skin Carrot Foam Cleanser
April Skin carrot 🥕 acne foam cleanser is a cleanser that is intended to help with relieving dry sensitive skin, reduce breakouts, help control sebum production, and minimize irritation caused by acne. This cleanser contains vitamin A and beta carotene and cleanses the skin without stripping it if it’s natural oils. Leaving skin feeling smooth, refreshed, and clear.
Benefits of Vitamin A: Vitamin A helps to speed up healing, prevent breakouts and support the skin's immune system and it promotes natural moisturising - which means it helps to hydrate the skin effectively, giving it a radiant glow. It assists in promoting and maintaining a healthy dermis and epidermis; the top two layers of your skin.
Benefits of Beta carotene: The human body converts beta carotene into vitamin A (retinol) – beta carotene is a precursor of vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin and mucus membranes, our immune system, and good eye health and vision. Carrots are found in many colors, including yellow, white, orange, red, and purple. Orange carrots get their bright color from beta carotene, an antioxidant that your body converts into vitamin A.
My experience: I already had a positive feeling about this cleanser before I even tried it. I love every product I have tried from April skin thus far and this cleanser is no exception. I love the creamy orange consistency and foam lather that this cleanser has. It cleansed my skin really well and left my skin feeling really refreshed and didn’t dry out my skin. Lately I have been getting quite a few breakouts more than what I am used to. I don’t know why but my skin is just not cooperating lol. I’ve been looking for products to incorporate into my skincare routine to help with clearing up my skin while continuing to leave my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. This cleanser seems to fit the bill well. I absolutely love that this cleanser contains vitamin A. Vitamin A is an active ingredient that I have grown very fond of. I’m starting to sway more towards anti-aging products because I am moving up more towards my 30s and personally feel as though I should be looking towards products that keep my skin feeling and looking youthful and lifted. Vitamin A is of course a retinol and helps achieve that firmness and lifted appeal. So having a cleanser that contains such an ingredient already makes me even more of a fan. Along the lines of minimizing breakouts i haven’t seen to much of a change but only time will tell. Either way this is a really good cleanser and pretty unique if you ask me. I always love coming across skincare that you don’t generally see in the skincare market so I definitely recommend trying it out.
