Ducray Keracnyl Foaming Gel Face & Body

I like saying my skin has a mind of it’s own. It’s a gentle way of saying that it like to break out now and then, and makes me play join the dots. There are periods when I have had no breaks and times when they decided to ruin my day. I tend to use more gentle gel based face washes and the last one I tried and I loved was Ducray Keracnyl Foaming Gel Face & Body.

The product claims to “Keracnyl foaming gel gently purifies and cleanses acne-prone skin. MYRTACINE, purifying active, limits the occurrence of blemishes. Soap Free.

Apply morning and evening on damp skin. Lather then rinse with water and dry.

My Experience with Ducray Keracnyl Foaming Gel Face & Body

Ducray Keracnyl Foaming Gel was a product I came across of an acne forum. My skin wasn’t in a bad shape but I was getting some pesky ones popping here and there. I decided to give this face wash a try. But I didn’t realize this would be hard to get my hands on. I had to try a couple of pharmacies and wait a while to get my hands on this face wash.

The face wash comes in a simple clean white tube packaging with a flip open cap. The cap is quite secure and I can assure you that you can carry this in your bag and wouldn’t have to worry about spillage. The face wash is gel based and can feel a little weird initially to use but it washes off very easily. I found that my skin feels cleans but not dry. Don’t expect it to remove much makeup though. This helped calm my breakouts a lot and also helped in reducing scarring a bit. I had also used it on my body a few times. I got some rashes due to an insect bite and this seemed to help with itchiness as well. This is a great face wash and along the lines of Cetaphil. The only issue I see is that is priced rather high, but you get a good quantity. Next time your skin decides to play games with you, give Ducray Keracnyl Foaming Gel a try and I am sure you will be impressed with the results.
