Clearasil is known to produce products for acne or “clean and clear” skin. I was gifted their new release product (Clearasil Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Daily Wash) for review. Plus, I was given one more for one of you guys – **edited: Giveaway now closed – winner will be contacted via email**! (READ DOWN BELOW!)
This product is meant to be one of their more gentle cleansers and I agree with that completely. I am currently on prescription medication for my acne and my face is extremely sensitized from the medication but this cleanser did not make me break out even more or sting my sensitive skin. After washing, my face does not feel like 100% of all oils have been stripped from it and the skin does not feel tight. This is good because stripping your skin 100% of all natural oils isn’t very good for you. I’m a lather and bubbles kind of girl, so in that respect, this product does not really tick that box. Also, since this product does not really lather and bubble, I notice that I tend to use a lot more of it, sometimes up to 2 pea sizes. I know it’s not necessary to use so much but…I REALLY WANT THOSE BUBBLES!
The scent of this product – WOW. Yes.. wow. I love it. It’s a very natural fruity scent that is not over the top and it is so very refreshing – a great wake-me-up. Packaging wise, it’s a standard squeeze bottle but the “nozzle” where the product disperses does annoy me a little. It has this indent deep enough for your finger, so when you squeeze the bottle, the product stays in the indent and then you use your finger to scoop it out. Personally, it’s just a teensy bit messy but I tend to be a nit-pick.
You can also use this product as a face mask but I haven’t tried it out yet due to my skin sensitivity. Face wash that doubles up as a mask?? Unheard of. This product contains a little bit of Salicylic Acid (it’s not one of the main ingredients), so if you’re extremely sensitive to that, you may want to be careful.
Before you bound off to the closest place to buy this product, it’s probably best to check out which facial cleanser in the Clearasil brand is good for you. Clearasil has a skin care guide on their website that allows you to choose a product that would be more suitable for your skin. As you know, I’ve been a sufferer of adult on-set acne for awhile and if you jump at any product, this can actually aggravate your skin even more, hence making you break out even more!
For it’s very reasonable price, I really love this product as it cleans my face without making it feel like I used something harsh and the refreshing smell is so good!
AUD$10.99 for 150ml (some places have occasional discounts, so look out for it)
Where to buy:
Priceline Pharmacy, any big supermarkets (like Woolworths, Coles, etc), most pharmacies.
