Minimalist Salicylic acid + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliat

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
