Over a year ago I began to get breakouts on my face so I went down to my local boots to buy a cleanses to help reduce them. I've seen tv adverts for Clearasil and how it claims to improve skin and removes dirt/oils on dry skin. Before I purchased this product I did read the front and back of the product and made my final decision to purchase when I saw that it has been dermatologically tested. Three months of using this product this has not made my face any better I still hade breakouts, dry skin and dirty/oily skins. This is probably one of the worst skin care facial products I have purchased. This product didn't just not work for me facially but I didn't like the smell ,look or consistency also. I would never buy this product again or recommend this to friend or family member with any type of skin.
I normally buy the Clearasil Stayclear wash for normal skin. However I wash rushing in Asda and I accidently picked up the wrong type. The bottles look the same so it was only when I got home I realised there was a small 'sensitive' logo in bright green staring at me.
The wash was on offer in Asda for £2, it normally costs around £3 and a bottle contains 150ml of wash. It comes in a white bottle with a pump action dispenser. On the front of the wash it states that it will give you clearer skin. It has a microbead formula which is designed to help prevent breakouts by cleansing deep into pores to remove oil and dirt, it also had moisturising agents to condition your skin.
The wash is gentle enough to be used twice a day.
I have normal to dry skin, sometimes I will suffer with the occasional breakout and if I use a wash like this daily it helps to prevent the breakouts.
To use the wash you simply need to wet your face and massage a small amount into your hands. It does advise you to avoid the eye area. I tend to use about one pump of the dispenser and this is adequate. The wash doesn't lather particularly well. This wash is different to the normal variety in that it doesn't have the same fresh smell. The smell of this reminds me of lanolin and I don't find it very pleasant. In terms of exfoliating I couldn't feel any of the little microbeads and after rinsing my skin it felt really tight and dry. My skin felt like all of the oil had been removed but this left my cheeks really dry and blotchy, I had to use a moisturiser afterwards.
I was disappointed with this wash I wouldn't use it again. It wasn't as good as the original variety I think this may have been because some of ingredients have obviously been changed. I have continued to use this as I don't like wasting things, I have to say that in terms of preventing blemishes it does the job. I wouldn't buy this wash again though.
