Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion

Hi everyone :pompom: Today I am going to review Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion. By now most of you would have come to know that I have oily acne prone skin after reading my posts. I have had this serious bout of acne around a year back, the mild ones are there throughout :yikes: I tried all available home remedies and most of the ointments and lotions available over the counter but nothing seemed to work. Finally I consulted a dermatologist and the situation came under control. During this painful tenure, I lay hands on Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion; let me tell you in detail about this product.

Product being reviewed: Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion.
Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion

What’s written on the bottle: A tried and tested formula for the care of pimples and acne. Containing wild turmeric, ashwagandha and neem, it helps to heal eruptions and check them from spreading. Soothes and purifies the skin, restoring its health and beauty.

Ingredients: Nowhere mentioned on the bottle (biggest turn off)
Price/Packaging/Quantity:
It comes in a boring blue transparent plastic bottle with a black twist up cap. It has a stopper with a hole to control the quantity needed. The price is INR 475(last year’s price, may have increased now) for 100ml.

Method of usage:
Apply only on pimples and acne at night with cotton wool. Leave on overnight, if sensitivity occurs, discontinue use.
My take on the product:
I had very high expectations from this product since it came from the beauty icon “The Shahnaz Hussain”. I have already described that it comes in a blue transparent bottle, the liquid inside is very runny, just like water, the colour of the lotion is the same as that of lacto calamine, in fact the smell also is quite same, the only difference is that Shah clear’s smell is 10 times stronger than that of lacto calamine and may be a problem for those who have sensitive nose. I applied this lotion at night and went off to sleep; it takes 4-5 minutes to dry as the consistency is quite runny. The next morning when I washed my face, I noticed absolutely no change in my face, the stubborn acne was the same and even the smaller zits were unchanged. I applied this lotion continuously for 8 days abut again I dint find any change in the bigger pimples, only the smaller ones had started to dry and the skin around those smaller acne was starting to peel off. I continued the same routine for 20 odd days but the effects were the same which I noticed after 8 days. It did not make my skin dry at all except for flaking near the smaller ones.

Also, when the bottle is kept stagnant for 2-3 hours, you can notice that the solid and the liquid part separate, the solid settles down and the liquid starts to float alone.

I finally reached to the conclusion that this is not a very effective lotion in curbing acne, there are better remedies to dry out the smaller zits, in fact many home remedies prove to be quite useful than this.

Pros of Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion:

1. Effective on smaller zits with continued application.
2. Has herbal ingredients like ashwagandha, wild turmeric and neem.

Cons of Shahnaz Husain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion:

1. Doesn’t do what it claims, ineffective on pimples.
2. The price is on a higher side.
3. Ingredients list is not mentioned.
4. Has strong medicated smell which is OTT.
5. Packaging is quite boring.

Will I buy again?
No, never ever!

Too bad it doesn’t work! Better options wud be Lotus tea tree gel (works to some extent) and Benzoyl peroxide ointment for spot application.

I have lost faith in derma’s also, till the time I am under medication i am ok, as soon as i leave it again the acne is back along with a hell lot of side effects :cry:

Reply

Parita July 28, 2011 at 9:40 pm

Somehow I always trust my derma for such things..never tried anything from Shahnaz Husain and now will not try them as mos to their products are plain expensive..right now m suing SebaMed Clear Face Cleansing Foam and its pretty good for pimples and blackheads..though the face wash is on expensive side but totally worth it..its only been 4 days I am using this and already feel a diff in my blackheads :waytogo:

Reply

Shivani July 28, 2011 at 10:24 pm

Ooooh :(( This sounds bad. That too it is not inexpensive! It sucks that it promises so much and then fails to deliver. I have never tried Shahnaz Husain products – somehow never felt like it. And such reviews further reinforce that feeling :)
Thank you Shivani! :))
