Let’s start with the facts. I have problematic skin that’s riddled with acne and it’s cute scars. Big pores and blackheads are accessory to the pimples that reside around my jaw and chin. Because of this, I’m always searching for the next best thing, even though I’m loyally regimented to using the products I know I love. For example, I have 3 backups of my Rejuvi k cleanser, skin healing gel, and q bioflavanoid, each.
I don’t normally buy skincare from Sephora, I’m more of a Dermstore girl. I find mainstream lines like Ole Henrikson , Dr. Brandt, or Clinique too washed down or too harsh. My sensitive skin likes gentle products with minimal ingredients. “Natural” products are either too irritating, too heavy, or just non-effective. I wish my skin was low maintenance, where I didn’t have to read ingredient lists, patch test products, or watch my food. Well life isn’t rainbows and fucking butterflies, and my skin is the boss.
Nano-cyclic soap bars are new-to-me, science-backed face/body soap made with nano-silver particles that penetrates pores for a thorough, anti-microbial/bacterial cleanse.
Nano-cyclic is a pastoral poem.
Nano-cyclic is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant.
Nano-cyclic is someone playing with your hair.
What got me to purchase something I’ve never heard of before within minutes of learning about it was the scientific jargon. There are two options: silver for oily acne/prone skin and pink for normal/sensitive skin. I bought both, intending on alternating between the two, depending on my skins situation. The cyclic nano-silver particles are ten nanometres in size, while our pores are around 200-250 nanometres. This means that the tiny silver particles are able to deeply penetrate the pore to eliminate all the bacteria and dead skin that clog pores.
It works the same way your favorite exfoliator does, by removing the dead epidermal cells from that layer to regenerate new skin. This product is strong, but doesn’t obliterate the top layer of my skin. If you have ultra-super-extremely sensitive skin, it might be too intense, but because it acts as a neutralizing agent, it helps both dry and oily skin (a godsend for us combo-skin types).
So listen up, I don’t use foaming cleansers. Except for this one. You don’t need to over-lather with this. Once it lathers, leave it on for about 5-6 minutes without rubbing.
What is it good for?
- Kill bacteria and attack acne at its root
- Exfoliate dead skin
- Lighten pigmentation
- Kill odor-causing bacteria to deodorize the body
- Tighten and fight wrinkles
- Provide natural UV protection
- Deeply penetrate pore to remove all traces of makeup, not just surface cleanse
What the fuck is silver?
Tiny pieces of silver dispersed & suspended in water is what colloidal silver is. Invisible to the naked eye, it used for killing bacteria, fungus, viruses immediately once in contact. There antibacterial properties are why they’re including in acne and wound treatments. T
Studies by Dr. Robert Becker, the QB surgeon at Syracuse Medical University, found colloidal silver causes tissue regrowth of an infected area, causing the skin to repair itself. Yo, that’s pretty sick.
I haven’t used this for a month yet and I’m already waxing poetic. If you know me, you know I don’t recommend something without months of testing, but holy tits, this is the only thing I’ll use on my face for a truly deep clean.
Fun fact for all you assholes out there: Hippocrates (OG founder of modern medicine) first coined silver as an antimicrobial ingredient way back in 400 BC for it germ-killing properties.
