Um hibiscrub is a powerful detergent used in hospital theatres dental surgeries doctors vets and probably lots of other medical places. Please be careful it's very strong and NOT recommend for your face. Makes the skin on your hands very very dry
Woah! Hibiscrub is (forgive my lack of eloquence) some serious shit!! Please be careful putting it on your skin. Any product which says avoid contact with the brain and meninges demands respect. I think I'd use it more as a spot treatment - dabbing it on individual ones.
Just had a look on veterinary websites and it recommends dilution. It might be a good idea to do so as it can cause skin problems and I imagine prolonged use might cause your skin to eventually become oily as it tries to compensate for the drying effects.
Agree with Corygal. I used to use it (diluted half with water) as a face wash, after washing my face with La Roche Posay Gentle Foaming Cleanser first. I always made sure I rinsed it off properly. The combo worked bloody wonders for me! I used either LRP Toleriane Ultra moisturiser afterwards, or Neal's Yard Rose Facial Oil. I'm pregnant now and my skin is inexplicably great again without me having to use Hibiscrub (in fact I hardly use anything - hormones can be brilliant sometimes )
