Clearasil Blackhead Clearing Cleanser
Advantages: Cleans skin brilliantly
Disadvantages: None really
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!
Summary: A must buy!
