If you remember a couple months back, I bought the Sephora Favorites Skin Cleanse Vol. 2 kit (view post here) and have used majority of the products at least once. The first one I'm going to review is the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay ($24, 4.7 oz). Its the one product I have thoroughly used up as of now.
It is a foaming gel cleanser that is suppose to detoxify, cleanse and unclog pores. It claims to control outbreaks and reduce sebum production while making pores appear instantly smaller.
The cleanser is red, obviously due to the red clay, and has a little bit of an iridescent effect. It removed makeup, but I wouldn't say it thoroughly removed it. I recommend using a makeup remover prior to cleansing your face, regardless of the cleanser you use.
As far as pores go, I've never really encountered a product that makes them instantly appear smaller. To me, my pores will always be the same size, no matter what I do to it. Since I mostly have hormonal acne, nothing really helps, so the cleanser probably did help prevent breakouts from dirt and makeup, but it didn't treat acne, which is something I like to have in a cleanser.
Overall, this cleanser is good, but I would not run out to repurchase. To be quite honest, I actually did consider repurchasing it, but decided on the Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser instead.
