This is my 2nd Oz Naturals product and it won’t be my last as I’m now in their reviewer program. Their line of skin care is superb, along the lines of spa quality and professional grade.
This time around I’m reviewing the Vitamin C Cleanser.
Product description: “This natural face wash deep cleans pores while providing 8 times the anti oxidant protection for a healthy, radiant glow! It contains powerful Vitamin C and works to help fade sun spots and skin discoloration due to sun exposure. It’s also a highly effective anti-aging moisturizer proven to refine skin texture and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It works gently while deep cleaning clogged pores. Vitamin C helps to stimulate skin’s rate of exfoliation for a brighter, smoother complexion & leaves your skin deeply clean, smooth and radiant.

It improves your skin by treating acne, psoriasis, eczema and many other conditions through its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-septic properties. Made in the USA in a state of the art FDA registered facility.”
The orange and white of the packaging goes well with the product. The cleanser itself is a clear gel, while it doesn’t have a fragrance (perfume-wise) it smells sort of like glycerin – I was kind of hoping it would smell citrusy, but no big deal. I’ve had other facial cleansers with this same scent or similar. It’s not unpleasant and I think a lot of the ones that are marked fragrance-free or unscented have this or a similar scent.
I agree that it does help to gently deep clean pores, and leaves the complexion a little smoother and brighter. I’ve had less episodes of dryness on my face since using it, which is fantastic (except those couple of days following that Tonymoly avocado face mask, and the dratted skin around and on my eyebrows). Although I prefer to apply cleansers to a dry face, for this one I opted to wet my face and then wet my hand prior to putting the product in my hands and applying. It is soapy, but not overly sudsy. However, I do caution that it stings if it gets into your eyes and it’s a little hard to get out of your eyes if you get a lot in there — so don’t get it in your eyes, problem solved! I also prefer to use this in the shower, it’s quicker than trying to use a cloth at the bathroom sink to try to get all of the product off of your skin.
It says it treats psoriasis and eczema, so I will have to try it on the patch on my inner calf.
Overall, I do like the cleaning power of this cleanser and plan on continuing to use it all up. Excited to see which other Oz Natural product is next to test!
