Avon Clearskin Oil Free Balancing Lotion
Today I want to talk about a product that I have been using for almost two months now. I want to recommend this product to all our oily skin club on imbb. If you belong the dry skin club, please skip reading this. I am talking about a moisturiser by avon, clearskin which is exactly like the clean and clear oil balancing lotion in texture, contents, feel and target area. I am so pleased with this product that I have almost forgotten about clean and clear oil balancing moisturiser.
Avon clearskin range: avon has a 4 step guide to clear skin comprising of a cleanser,toner, moisturiser, and blemish treatment. Though I have tried all, I am in no position to recommend the other three apart from the moisturiser as I found them way too strong for even our oily skin.

My Take on Avon Clearskin Oil Free Balancing Lotion
This is the third step in my cleansing toning and moisturising routine. I initially used to apply the clean and clear lotion which also contains salicylic acid for peeling skin of the dead skin cells there by preventing blocked pores. It’s a light green pastel kind of lotion. This product contains salicylic acid as well as glycolic acid which are both meant to peel skin off the dead cells for oily skin as the debris accumulates in the skin there by causing blackheads and blocked pores. What this product does for me is that it moisturises, leaves skin supple and simultaneously targeting blocked pores. I cant ask for more. Though the claims are too powerful but I found the product very gentle and not all irritating to my sensitive skin. It also says allergy tested and dermatologist tested which makes me even sure as that is very important for sensitive. It does not leave my skin greasy at all and there is no shiny after feel I use it as moisturiser as I don’t feel the need to top it up with some other lotion as well. Once I use this im done and I don’t have to worry about pimples anymore. The only point here is to be consistent with this, this is my second bottle and since then I have faced only occasional pimples. The product required is very less almost a 25 paise coin sized and is to be gently applied and not rubbed into the skin. They do mention to applied to only pimple prone areas but I use it everywhere on my face where I may have a chance to get pimples. All in all it’s a great product for me as it moisturises, treats and refreshes skin
