There’s one product that seems to crop up a lot on the men’s grooming and skin care blogs and vlogs out there at the moment and that is Anthony Logistics's Glycolic Facial Cleanser. I’ve therefore decided to put it through its paces over the past two weeks, in order to give full and frank feedback to anybody who is interested in adding it to their skincare routine.

Infused with 4.9% glycolic acid, which we know is a powerful deterrent to acne and blemishes, Anthony promise that this non-foaming formula will cleanse and exfoliate simultaneously. If you’re a guy who suffers with tough and hard to soften facial hair/stubble too, they also guarantee to rid your routine of any pre-shave woe, by softening and weakening your facial forest.

After using this cleanser twice daily for about a week, the results that I saw were very mediocre. Yes, my face looked a little brighter and more glowing, but I didn’t really see any improvement in my skin’s tone and texture. If anything, I ended up having even more blemish breakouts throughout the week and it crossed my mind more than once to stop using this cleanser altogether.

Thankfully, I stuck with it and the improvements I saw in my skin over the following seven days were the polar opposite compared to the first. I can only assume that I had so much dirt and grime embedded into my skin that in the first week, the cleanser was working tirelessly to draw it all out - creating more blemishes in the process. Aside from my blemishes disappearing by the day during week two, I also noticed a massive improvement in the evenness of my skin tone. My face was beginning to look smooth and clean and with the entire transformation of my face taking about 16 days in total, you’ll too be shocked at how fast you see results.

I really like that it doesn’t foam and the liquid doesn’t just evaporate when it hits the skin, like a lot of other men’s face cleansers I have tried in the past. I only need to apply a little bit onto a cotton wool pad too as it really does go a long way. The formula itself is quite viscous too, so it’s easy to pour just a medium size blob onto the pad, without it going all over the place. I really loved the fresh and natural fragrance of this cleanser and overall it was a pleasure to apply every single day.

I have combination skin and I was a little worried about my skin drying out, however, that wasn’t the case and instead my face has remained soft and hydrated. Overall, i’d give this cleanser a solid 8 out of 10 and my biggest bit advice to guys intending to purchase it is definitely 100% stick with it and you’ll reap the long term rewards.
