My Thoughts: Priori Advanced AHA Gentle Facial Cleanser


Apologies for disgusting cap… On bright side you know I use it like crazy woman!

Priori is such an under-rated brand. It has some amazing products in their line however I’ve rarely ever heard anyone rave about it or give it the recognition and credit it deserves. Today I want to give this cleanser its much deserved claim to fame!

I’ve used this cleanser for past 7-8 years on and off (trying other things) however time and again I’ve returned to this cleanser. It has a light milky cleanser consistency without any offensive scent. Lightly massage this into my skin and it leaves my skin lightly exfoliated (due to its lactic acid content), soft, hydrated, smooth. I noticed an overall radiance and brightness in my skin over a period of time. Did it prevent breakouts? In my opinion and experience, it’s difficult to resolve this issue with just a cleanser. Personally I rely on serums, spot treatments etc to resolve that matter.

A perfect addition to line up of cleansers as it does a wonderful job at a light cleanse in morning or as a second cleanse after my makeup removal ritual (with oil or balm).

The bottle lasts me decent 4-5 months using one pump each time, twice a day (180ml). Fortunately, the price tag is not as steep as many cleansers ($38 –, so I can easily justify shelling out such moolah for a good cleanser.
