Best medicated wash

published

This facial cleanser has been fantastic for clearing my skin’s acne and breakouts. I have very oily skin and this helps combat it. I patch tested it on the inner crook of my elbow to ensure I was not sensitive to it, however if I wash too vigorously or apply the wash after using an exfoliant or facial wash cloth, it does burn slightly. Do not use on broken or already irritated skin, the wash still works if not using daily. Use in conjunction to cleaning pillow cases and make up utensils frequently, this has definitely given me clear skin with frequent use.

Really effective!

published

I got this after noticing it in Priceline, initially for my fella’s clogged back pores. Within a week or so his skin was noticeably less inflamed and lacking all the usual oily spots. I’ve now taken to use it for my skin too. Bottle says face wash but it’s super effective for the whole body (minus sensitive areas), as well as the face.

It works, kind of.

To be clear- I have somewhat sensitive skin. pHisohex helps; yet it almost gave me a chemical burn. My skin dried up , reddened and cracked around creases of my eyes, the corners of my mouth and the sides of my nostrils. It does it's job.

TERRIBLE

published

I have a daughter that suffers from pimples and this item was recommended from Priceline staff for her to use it, it made her pimples on her forehead much worse. Instead of clearing them up they multiplied by heaps. It is a very drying product and needs so much moisturiser to get your skin back to normal.
I would not recommend it.

Not much changed

I have backne and chestne (pimples on back and chest) , I do competitive swimming and thanks to that I have a lot of pimples and scars. I was recommended this product and apparently it could be used as a body wash, I tried it and it was all soapy but when I rinsed it off and tried scrubbing nothing looked or felt any different. I've been using it for around 3-5 weeks and nothings changed, seriously disappointing

The only thing that has worked

published

I’ve always had pimples. I’m 45. I got this for my son who is going through puberty. I tried it one day and the next day for the first time ever, not one new pimple! Unreal. I have combination tending to dry skin and this does not dry my skin at all.

I Struggled for 2 years using different products. Using this has cleared a lot of problems overnight in conjunction with the blackhead extractor tool. The sting is killing the bacteria.

Horrid

published

Right after using I could tell that something wasn't right as my face had started stinging and heating up. It's been about 10 mins and even after I put moisturiser on my face is still bright red. I feel as if my face is on fire.

Would not recommend.

Amazing product! completely changed my skin

published

Phisohex really is a game changer. I had searched for so long for a facial wash that would clear my acne. the amount of money spent on so many different brands in order to clear my mind acne was getting ridiculous. I came across this and truth be told, within a day and a half of using it my inflamed pimples were noticeably disappearing, and have stayed away since. Only advice I would give for using this product is to moisturize after use even if you do have oily skin like myself. This may not work on everyone, but clearly my root cause of acne was bacteria so this was the perfect treatment.

just made things worse

I'm a teenager and suffer with severe acne and i did notice a bit of a difference at the beginning but after several months my acne got worse rather than better. This may be due to me being a teen but i do not recommend this for teens with severe acne.

Features:

pHisohex is both an antibacterial wash and a skin cleanser that aids in the treatment of acne and pimples by removing dirt and oil from blocked pores.

It uses triclosan - an ingredient scientifically-proven to combat the two main types of bacteria associated with acne and pimples. Because it's also pH-balanced, it won't dry out your skin.

What reviewers thought:

The majority of users found that with continued use, their acne improved. It is recommended to use a moisturiser after this product.

Some reviewers have noted a tingling or burning sensation whilst using this product, which means it may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin.
