“ Brand: Clearasil / Type: Cleanser / What it does: Cleanses, „
I bought this product when it was on offer at bodycare for £1.98.
I have seen many advertisements for Clearasil, but I have always been put off by the 'too perfect' young models they choose to use, rather than 'real people.'
The bottle lasts for about 6-8 weeks, which is great for the price.
I would say that this is definitely not for use on sensitive skin; it is very harsh on my skin, and I have medium to oily skin. You can almost smell how harsh it is.
Also, it is not good for use on the eyes. I need a strong eye makeup remover, so what I do with this is pour it onto a cotton pad and then wrap the cotton pad in dry tissue paper, and use it like this; it makes is much more bearable.
This firms and tones skin, leaving it pleasantly tingly and fresh. It really does offer a deep clean to skin and completely eliminates blackheads and pores rather than just masking them.
This is great on spots, very fast acting. However, spots form because of a lack of moisture on the skin, so the sebaceous glands produce more oil to compensate, causing spots. Therefore, if you use this product, make sure that you use a really good moituriser aferwards.
I tend to use this product for six weeks or until the bottle ends and then give my skin a break for a few weeks before I use again. Most beaugty products are more effective when you keep rotating them.
This product is so similar to clinique products, without the hefty price tag.
I bought this clearasil and have been using it since i was about 12 and i find it works very well for me. I have never had really bad skin but do have break outs occasionally, so needed to find a product which works quickly and this was the one for me.
It comes in a clear plastic bottle with a hinge lid, the liquid is a dark blue and has a very clinical smell to it. The liquid is of a liquid consistency not a gel. I apply it to a cotton wool pad and wash my skin with it. It is very strong and you can feel it tingle a bit on the first few times you use it. The liquid is just applied to the skin and not washed off.
It does dry out your skin after a few weeks so i do apply bio oil after i have allowed it to cleanse my skin, to keep my skin balanced in oils. I find it works really quickly and you can notice real difference the day after you use it, and within a week blemishes have gone down.
Overall i would definitely recommend this product as it is my favorite when it comes to cleansing, it works quickly and you see results within days, i could not live without it.
I have been using this product for about 6 months now and it is a fairly decent product. It is not the most expensive skin cleaning regime in the shops but for the price you pay it is very effective.
It contains natural sea salt which is supposed to help to remove blackheads and although I did not actually have very many in the first place, it certainly did help to clear up the few that I did.
The basic idea is that you wipe it over your face after you have washed it with a cleansing lotion then use this product to finely cleanse your skin.
The only problem I have found with it is that it does tend to leave your skin feeling quite dry and tight afterwards so I invested in a Clearasil Moisturising Lotion which made my face feel much more comfortable.
It has a pleasant aroma and comes in a big enough bottle to last you a substantial amount of time.
Clearasil has been around for years. Me, I've used it on and off for years but never really took a lot of notice of it to be honest. Kind of used it and then forgot about it. So when I saw this Clearisil Blackhead Cleanser in the pound shop I thought I should try it out. I do suffer really badly with spots even though I'm 33 and particularly around the time of the month. I always have a spot or two, suffer badly with open pores and lots of visible blackheads and I can only remove them by squeezing which is just yuk! Also some of the large pores, when I squeeze them even though they don't have an apparent black head they still ooze gunk.
I do try really hard to look after my skin and face in particular and sometimes think maybe I look after my skin too well and that's why I have so much trouble.
So I said I purchased this thinking I'd give it a serious trial this time. I've been using it a while now, say a month.
It's in a clear recyclable 200ml bottle with a white flip top white lid. The liquid itself is blue. On the front it tells me who it is by and what it is. On the back tells me what it should do, a little diagram and that's about the lot!
Clearasil Blackhead Clearing Cleanser contains natural sea salt. It cleans and tightens pores to help clear existing blackheads and spots and help prevent new ones from forming.
The intensive cleansing action helps break up blackhead and breakout-causing dirt, oil, bacteria and dead skin cells. At the same time, the active skin conditioners help prevent over-drying, helping you to achieve beautifully clear, glowing, blackhead-free skin.
Using the product...
Sweep over the face for a deep cleanse with a cotton wool pad. I always take off my make up first with cleanser and toner to make sure face is relatively clean and then use this. I use it first thing in morning and last thing at night. If I have a spot then I'll squeeze some onto a cotton wool pad and use it as a compress.
Amazing on spots! I'm not gonna lie and say none appeared at all and this was a miracle. That's simply not true but the couple I have had have been a hell of a lot less. They haven't hurt and haven't needed popping. I know you shouldn't pop but we all know what its like to get a huge one you simply cant cover and it's like a massive volcano and to be able to leave the house you pop it in front of the mirror and it splats? Well using this I've had none of them moments at all. Just a couple mini spots and not breakouts! So you can really see the dirt come out on to the cotton wool pad after using this even after cleansing and toning, it comes off black. It really does deep clean the skin but very gently. Even thought it has a 'minty' effect on the skin it doesn't sting or make eyes run or anything. Its just not that harsh!
As for blackheads. Well it hasn't got rid of them all. What it has done has diminished them alot and my larger pores have closed up alot . I was getting blackheads appearing almost on a daily basis and none have appeared since using this product. The blackheads I have got either look lighter or they really have been cleared out as loads have vanished into thin air. Though even using this product twice a day for past say month there are some really stubborn blackheads on my chin that just will not budge! However I'm so impressed with the results that I will continue usage.
A much underrated brand. This is an excellent product and it has encouraged me to try other products in the range out.
Two words of warning though....
If your going to discontinue use do it on a week that don't matter cos as soon as you stop using it skin has a reaction and it ain't too pretty!
Also it does bring blackheads to the surface. I've found this product not to clear these ones out so I've had to pop them as they are unsightly or I guess you'd have to ignore them and see what happens but I just can't bear to do that I'm afraid! They are easy to pop out though! Blurgh lol
£4.49 Boots, but do look out for offers on this one.
My advice is buy it!
It does exactly what it says on the bottle, although results are not immediate, you do have to have a little patience.
The smell is glorious, and it really does wake me up in the morning(which i really need), just don't get it near your eyes!!!
My skin does feel a little tight for a few minutes but it does feel deep down clean, and without feeling at all dry!!
I got it from boots at £3.61, which isn't bad as you only need to use a tiny squirt!
Blackheads are a pain and they are nothing to be ashamed of, we all have them at some point, and i would highly reccomend this for zapping the little critters!!!
