I''ve used Clearasil Stay Clear Cleansing Wipes in the past a few times, mainly when my skin was having a bit of a funny spell on the spot front and I felt that I needed something a little bit more intense than my normal Olay or Simple wipes. I don''t use Clearasil Stay Clear Cleansing Wipes on a regular basis but I do use them from time to time when my skin is feeling in need of a more ?medicated'' wipe, especially on my chin and forehead area, where my skin can be prone to being greasy. I buy these wipes from Tesco where they cost three pounds and forty five pence for a pack of twenty five wipes. These wipes are perhaps stronger than the Simple wipes or those made by Olay. They also have quite a strong smell which I am not fond of but they do work at eliminating those greasy and oily patches on my face and help to dry out any little pimples and spots I manage to get at certain times of the month. The wipes themselves are white in colour, quite moist and they do a great job at removing all traces of my makeup and help to make my face feel really fresh and squeaky clean. They are strong wipes and I have never found that they break or shred whilst I have been using them. They are easy to remove one at a time from their resealable little plastic packet and they stay moist and fresh right down to the last one. I do think that these wipes are a little more harsh on the skin than the wipes I use more regularly and for that reason I prefer to use them only occasionally, especially when my skin is feeling a bit spotty and needs a bit more attention. Overall, I think I would recommend them if you have a slightly pimple-prone skin and especially if you have oily patches as I do. They are quite expensive, and whilst I don''t really love their fragrance, they do work
I am pretty lax when it comes to removing make-up and clearing my skin but recently I have noticed that the spots I thought had gone from my life were popping up more than often. I decided that I needed to look after my skin more often and I started removing make up, applying moisturiser and using spot treatments. While browsing the shelves of my local Asda I came across these face wipes on offer for just £1 which I thought was excellent value for a clearasil product as generally their products are pretty expensive. The regular price of these wipes are around the £2.99 mark so I think I got a pretty good deal.
The wipes look a little different to the picture provided, the pack I have is a mixture of deep blues with a sticky tab that reveals a foil type of covering on the inside, I presume this is to keep the wipes moist and fresh. I found the tab is sticky and I've had no problems with it losing it's adhesive and rolling backwards which is good I think. The pack is nice to look at but generally I'm not all that bothered about what it looks like as long as it works.
The pack contains 25 wipes and on removing one I found that they had a strong smell that had a hint of tea tree to it. The were also pretty thick and had a texture to them which I assume aids in giving a deeper clean. I also found that the wipes were larger than regular face wipes of which I find allows me to give my face a really good clean without the wipe drying out and becoming useless before I'm done. They were tough and didn't clump, rip or tear during use which I was pleased with.
When I wiped over my face it had a tingly feel to it but ultimately I did find that my face felt very clean and fresh however I do think it dried my face out a little and I definitely needed a moisturiser afterwards to ensure I wasn't left with dry skin. The next morning I found that my skin did feel much cleaner than it does with using just a make up remover so I was really pleased that my skin was properly cleaned and not just the top coat removed. I was also pleased that the strong smell hadn't stayed on my face as it really isn't the most pleasant.
After a few days use I found my skin was a lot clearer than it had been. I tend to get a cluster of spots on the right hand side of my chin and a couple of stray ones on the left and it really does annoy me something awful especially as I can't leave them and have to pop them. The spots I did have have dies down and I'm waiting on the remaining traces to disappear but I haven't had any more pop up so I am satisfied that these wipes are doing the job they are intended to. I think that the regular selling price is a bit too expensive for these although they do work. I would happily purcahse at £1 or even £2 a pack but any more than that and I wouldn't stretch to it. For the price point I do have to remove a star.
----- what are they? ----
They are facial cleansing face wipes which are used to get rid of grease from your face. They are great for fighting spots and will help clear up problem skin. They can be used by both sexes. For guys they sort out the skin and for girls they can remove make up and do the same thing.
---- how did I stumble across them? ----
I started to use these a couple of years ago when I got bored of using face wash before bed. Face wash never worked for me, not even the clearasil black head scrub, I still had spots and they irritated my face all the time! I saw these in tesco and they were around £2.50. You get 25 in the pack which makes them about 10p each. This is quite expensive, but I believe it Is worth the money because they really helped me.
---- did they work? ----
Yes they did! I simply wiped my face and t-zone before bed, they removed the grease and left my face feeling very clean. By the morning I saw a difference everyday, they cleared up the redness on the breakout and my face used to be greasy when I woke up, but after using these before bed I felt great and looked better everyday. My girlfriend used to use these for her makeup when she stayed round mine, they worked well and she said they cleaned her face nicely! They worked for us both and that is good enough for me.
---- cost ----
They are rather expensive if you use two a day, one in the morning and one in the evening will make the last last less that 2 weeks, this gets expensive. But they work well so I was happy to pay the price of them. I used them for two years, which did cost me a lot.
---- overall ---
I was very happy with this product, I would recommend this to anyone. Men and woman can use them. They work on most skin and are very helpful. They will leave your skin feeling very soft and clean. I don't use them anymore becaue my skin has gone past the greasy teenager stage! My girlfriend still swears by them for her make up. They would also be good for young kids getting there first spots! It's will help clear them up and it would give them a good Idea of how to clean themselves.
I love these, they really do work :)
I have to say that i cannot recommend this product enough. They are an absolutely brilliant way of clearing your skin of unwanted blemishes and nasty redness! and they even made me feel more confident when going out into town and things.
The wipes are simple and easy to use, just make sure that you get absolutely everywhere on your face and i can absolutely guarantee that you will see a massive decrease in the number of spots you get. Obviously you will still get one or two, as no one has discovered the cure for acne! but they will go down a massive amount.
I also use this product to try and clear up any spots that i currently have. When i do get the odd one, say i forget to use my wipe, then using one of these definately reduces the redness straight away and usually if i wipe just before bed the spot has gone by the next morning!
To be honest, i dont think you can go far wrong with most clearasil products, i have used a wide variety and they all work very well.
In short, if you have spots and you want them gone, get a clearasil product bought, and i would personally recommend this one.
I'm going through a bit of a skin nightmare just now. For some reason i've got a few bit angry looking spots. I do tend to have bad skin, and normally have some spots of some kind no matter what I use on my face, but not often as bad as theseones. So this called to try Clearasil to see if they would make any difference. I remember when I was a teenager I found Clearasil seemed to dry my face out a bit. My cheeks are dry and the rest of my face oily, so I found Clearasil a bit harsh for me. Would it be any different thesedays?
These wipes come in a plastic pouch. The pouch is a blue colour and not the nicest colour anyway. It just looks an odd blue. Anyway it has quite a large plastic bit on the front as well, and you lift the plastic flap to get to the wipes. The wipes are sealed with a bit sticky tape, and when you seal the tape, you shut the plastic bit and i'm sure this is all to keep the wipes moist. In my view they didn't need such a large plastic bit, but on the plastic bit s all the writing of the product.
On the back is all the ingredients and a bit about the product. Basically why use the product, and what it's claims are.
So now to the wipes. There is 32 in the pack and they recommend you use 1 in the morning and 1 at night, which I have been doing. The wipes are a decent size, and quite thick. Although they are moist I was expecting them to be a little wetter, and I found instead of just sweeping these over my face and feeling the lotion on my face, I had to rub this over my face and by the tingling sensation I knew my face was covered. I didn't have to rub too hard, but harder than I have had to do with other wipes.
So do these work? Kind of. After using for 5 days my spots haven't disappeared, but they have become better. They don't look as red and they aren't as large. Bearing in mind the spots in question were large and you could feel them huge on my face, so they have shrunk to smaller less noticable ones. I am using this product with another Clearasil face wash, which I use every 2nd day, so something is helping, but I just wished the spots in question had completely disappeared. Who knows what a few more days use will bring though.
The normal price for these from my local Asda is around £3.40, but they were on rollback for £2.50, so not that bad for money just now.
I guess I would buy them again, as they have helped at least.
There's a lot of facial wipes out there claiming to work wonders for your skin, so which one should you go for? I wanted something that would remove my make-up and leave my face feeling fresh and soft. Having quite sensitive skin, a lot of products either make my face greasy or dry - the Clearasil Deep Cleanse wipes however did what they said they would: leaves "skin clean, soft and refreshed".
The formula cleanses away dirt, bacteria and oil which helps prevent spots and I believe they do. I didn't find that they were a miracle cure for the blemishes I already have, but I don't see new spots invading my skin either.
They suggest these are used twice daily, morning and evening. You get 25 wipes in a packet which means these wouldn't last 2 weeks, and at the average price of £3.79 (superdrug) it can be an expencive daily routine. I tend to pick these up when they're on offer so shop around and stock up on a couple when you find a good deal. Each wipe is a very good size and I've found that I only really need half of it to do the job. By cutting them in half and resealing the pack, they last twice as long!
If you're looking for something that has a pleasant smell, leaves your skin fresh & make-up free, then I would recommend you give these a go :)
I found these wipes at one of our local shops which, unfortunately, has now closed down and I got 2 packets for £1.
My daughters and I use skin cleansers every day and I thought that we could try wipes for a change as there is obviously no need to use cotton pads or cotton wool.
The pack is blue with the 'Clearasil' logo so is easy to spot.
There are 25 wipes in each pack (6m) which has a pull-back sealer which can be re-sealed to keep the others fresh.
On the pack it says they are dermatologically tested and are unsuitable for young children.
The smell is not too strong - just lightly perfumed which is good when just using a cleanser - there's no need for added fragrance.
I always remove my make-up with a remover first and then use cleanser - I think cleansers are too harsh for the skin around the eyes.
propylene glycol, polysorbate,hydrogenated caster oil, malic acid, lactic acid etc etc - good grief!!
How does it work?
These wipes are impregnated with gentle cleansers that remove surface dirt whilst cleansing deep into pores.
How and when do I use it?
Use everyday in the morning & evening.
Wipe over face & neck area.
Do not rinse.
We were all pleased with the product but I'm not sure if I would buy them on a regular basis as I'm sure it's still cheaper to use a liquid cleanser.
However they are great to take on holiday beacause of their ease of use.
A recommended product from Clearasil.
These little wipes are magnificent if your need waking up! One wipe across the face and your face feels so much cleaner..but does it ACTUALLY clean your face?!?! Well I used the Clearasil lotion after and there was a tiny amount of dirt that remained on the cotton wool, therefore these wipes do clean your face well but you may need to scrub your face with them abit to get the deep pour cleaning that your face deserves!
On the other hand they are effective if you are in rush, as you dont need a sink to wash your face therefore you can wash on your way to work which would be beneficial to many people. Compared to ordinary, cheaper facial wipes these do come out on top as your face tingles once wiped and your face feels so clean after. However they arent that effective at removing make up, especially stubborn mascara, so these make come in handy more in the morning when your face is free from make up.
The fragrance is fresh and not too over powering.
More importantly, this product did help clear my spots vastly, however I did use other Clearasil products in conjunction with this which could have speeded up the process!
These wipes are definitely worth the money for skin types that are prone to spots, however ordinary products may work just as effectively for those of your with 'normal' skin types..and your can save yourself money in the process.
Oh what a trial it is to be young, passing through that puppy fat phase into that state of adolescent. Coming into the bloom of youth usually means one thing, well, apart from the crushed, wet dreams, attempts at getting out of the house wearing nothing more than a wide belt and a vest, temper tantrums, and that?s spots! Puberty sends those sebaceous glands into overdrive, the end result being spots and pimples! Excuse me, you at the back! I'll have you know I remember those days, horrible clumpy shoes with bottle tops on and not far past those ra-ra skirts. I left those years behind a while back but unfortunately I bought my beautiful skin with me! Now I'm quite happy, the lines haven?t caught up with me yet, but my skins still prone to the odd bratty breakout. Thankfully I'm not at the Cameron Diaz level but my chin and the surrounding area is a bit prone to the odd break-out. And no matter how I cleanse my skin, moisturise, etc, they keep coming back. Eventually I had to admit defeat and decide that anti-spot products were in order. So I decided to brave the aisle with the gaggle of self-conscious teenager (when they weren't busy stuffing their pockets full of illicit goods) and have a perusal. Immediately quite a few were out, due to the fact they contained witch hazel which I'm allergic to. I was quite astonished at how expensive some of them were. It can be quite expensive for trial and error. Eventually, because I'd heard of the brand and the fact that they were on offer at £2.49 drew me to Clearasil Complete Pure Purifying Wipes. Of course that also made it sound super effective. They do declare to 'gently cleanse away oil, dirt and make up, unclog pores and remove bacteria' They apparently leave the skin shine free and they're suitable for sensitive skins. The smell is quite innocuous, it reminds me of wet clay, strange I know, the smell is also quite mild. You get a nice big square, ce
rtainly big enough to cover your face and neck. They are damp, not soaking wet like some more your wet wipe kind of thing, but they do dry out really quickly, so hastily use and cover up the packet. Of course, rather moaningly I do have to say that the packet top doesn?t fold over completely so you end up with a dry end! Now the practical test, I have nearly full make up on, so we'll see just how much of that it removes. Well, its ok, maybe 5 out of 10 but that with me having to scrub a bit, perhaps they would be more suitable for a quick rinse in the morning. Now it mentions leaving your skin slightly refreshed, not so sure on that, but bit its definitely tingling. I'm not too keen on the fact its made my face feel really tight! Its that kind of someone pulling up on your ears feeling. It has, however, made it wonderfully smooth. I must add that they don?t actually make a claim of them being moisturising. But I didn?t buy it for that, I bought it to sort out my spots! Does it work? Actually I'm not so sure, I sure haven?t had a major spot in a while but its not sorting out the small ones nor does it seem to prevent blackheads. Is it worth the money? Not for myself, as I'm not prone to major spots which is what it seems to be effective at preventing, on the same token I find I cant use it around my mouth, in particular around my lips as its obviously too strong and end up causing them instead! And it doesn?t help spots that are already there, so the old toothpaste treatment comes out for those! So to sum it up, it works for some, including my teenage daughter, hence 4 stars, its just not for me. Oh God, another trip to Boots on a Saturday with all those teenagers..............
