The other day I was reading a review about these morning energy face washes here on IMBB and the fact that they were not launched in India. So when I went out to shop and saw these cute little bottles placed right in front of the shelf, i could not resist myself and picked two of these. The energising lemon one has been reviewed by Dee here. I shall be reviewing the other variant which is purifying apple and mainly meant for oily skin. Without more blabbering, I shall move on to the review.
Product being reviewed: Clean and Clear Morning energy Face Wash Purifying Apple.
What the product claims: Purify your oily skin with this gentle face wash which has Bursting Beads that burst with energy and purifying apple extract. Gives you a burst of morning energy anytime of the day. The rich foam thoroughly removes oil and dirt. It has special ingredients that help prevent common skin problems without over drying. Leaves skin feeling clean, clear and beautiful everyday.
Price/ Packaging/Quantity: INR 95 for 100 ml. It comes in a cute sturdy plastic transparent bottle. The 50 ml bottle is so cute that I picked up the other variant just for the cute little size ( also the smaller empty bottles may come in handy while travelling when you want to take along your favourite shampoo or conditioner) It has a purple coloured flip top screw cap which is sturdy and no problem of leakage or spilling.
Ingredients: Well, no mention of the ingredients on the bottle. It came as quite a surprise or rather shock to me that there is no mention of ingredients on a face wash by clean and clear which a majority of oily skinned girls apparently use. Quite a turn off here!
My take on the face wash:
It is a very light green coloured liquid face wash which has a runny consistency. Also it mentions about the bursting beads, yes there are these small green coloured beads present in the face wash which can be pressed on to the palm, they are very soft and get smashed easily. A small quantity of the product is required to clean the entire face. After the wash, my face felt squeaky clean without even an iota of dryness. My skin also dint feel stretched as is done by most of the face washes meant for oily skin. My face remained oil free for around 2 hours after which the oil returned. The face wash does not lather much but it is not as bland as Clearasil face wash. Coming to the fragrance, it does smell of green apples though I am not sure if artificial fragrance ( perfume) has been used or it has the real extracts of green apple since there is no mention of ingredients list. The fragrance is very pleasant and does not linger for a long time, once the face is washed there is no artificial fragrance left. Also, it dint break me out even once, i have been using it for a week now. It hasn’t done anything for my existing acne but yes I haven’t noticed any new break out also during the past one week.
All in all, I am quite happy with it, it is rejuvenating, refreshing and makes the skin cleaner devoid of the oil.
