Review – Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash

Spots and acne can be a nightmare at any age.  Most of us will indentify it with adolescents – all those spotty teenagers 🙂 – but the truth is that they can come back to us later in life as well. Hormonal disturbance can trigger a comeback of an outbreak.

Quinoderm offers a selection of product to help us battle spots and acne. One of their products is a Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash which I had the pleasure to try out.

When it comes to my face wash I usually pick something gentle and fragrant free, so I was a little worried about Quinoderm as it has quite a strong smell… don’t get me wrong it is quite pleasant to be honest… just like a toothpaste or a mint shower gel… anyhow after using it a couples of times it stopped bothering me so much. The other aspect of Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash which hit me right from the start was its colour… again I am used to clear stuff and this one is blue 🙂 It doesn’t really make any difference because once you spread it over your face it becomes colourless more or less, so no you don’t end up with a blue face 😉

So Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash is blue and it smells of mint. It works well, I think. It left my skin feeling clean and for sure very fresh. I have been using it once a day for about two weeks now and I am very happy with the condition of my skin at this point. The only advice for anyone with a dry skin using it, do not forget to use moisturiser afterwards, as it will dry out your skin a bit. I left my face bare, on purpose, on a few occasions to see if it would make a difference, and it did make it drier than usual.

What was surprising for me was the fact that is doesn’t foam so much. Normally a face wash “grows” when connected with water and a massage motion, but Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash doesn’t. It is easy to spread but it doesn’t form tones of foam, which is nice and I really like it for that.

If you are in need of an aid to help you battle acne I would suggest visiting Quinoderm website or their Facebook page or Twitter feed.

Quinoderm product can be purchase from Boots or a Lloyds Pharmacy or one of the many online chains selling healthcare products.

Doing a quick search I found Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash for as little as £2.25 (per 150ml bottle), which for something which will help us to stay pretty and spot free is a real bargain.

To sum it up…

Would I buy it? Yes, I would. Despite its colour or smell, which I simply didn’t expect, I liked the product. After washing my face I knew that it was clean and I haven’t had any spots, so what more could I ask from a face wash…

Did you ever try any of Quinoderm products?

Do you have any tips how to win the fight against spots?


I received one 150ml bottle of Quinoderm Antibacterial Face Wash for free for review purpose. All opinions expressed in this review are honest and my own.
