I’m back with another review. Today it is the Clean and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer.
I was looking for a new moisturizer to try this winter and I stumbled upon this at the store and since I have oily and acne prone skin, I thought this would be the moisturizer to try. Also I had very dry skin around my eyes and nose which made me realize that ignoring moisturizer is a big no no, even if you have oily skin.
Price: Rs.80 for 100ml.
- Clean & Clear Skin Balancing Moisturiser has an oil-free formula that moisturizes without greasiness and does not clog pores
- Salicylic acid helps prevent pimples and blackheads
Directions: Apply evenly on face and neck. Use twice daily for skin that’s clean, clear and beautiful.
My Experience with Clean and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer:
The packaging is very travel friendly, it’s a white plastic (translucent) bottle with a blue cap, which can be opened with either the flip cap or by rotating the whole blue cap off the bottle. The content itself is an almost sheer white cream and you get the right amount dispensed with the help of the nozzle. The nozzle keeps the usage of the product to a minimum reducing wastage. The product inside is not very runny which is apt for a moisturizer, at the same time, the product spreads easily across your face.
When I first got this product and started using it, I didn’t really find any difference in the dryness of the areas around my eyes and nose, but this was just after one or two applications, which I don’t think is enough for a product to work its miracle. I though it’s a waste of money and was just about to give up, when I realized I don’t have any other moisturizer to use on daily basis to college, so I continued to use this and within a week my skin was back to normal, no cracks or flakes around my eyes and nose. I was so glad I continued to use this.
I would use about a coin size amount in the beginning since I thought my skin needed all the moisture I could provide it with, but eventually I reduced the amount to a pea size amount and I am more than happy with this.
I include this in my daily CTM routine, I use the Clean and Clear Foaming Face Wash with rose water as my toner and then this for the moisturizer and my skin is happier than ever.
I am not sure how this would work during summers, but this doesn’t make my skin too oily during the day. If in case it does, I just wipe off the oil using a tissue/blotting paper.
Pros of Clean and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer:
- Easily available anywhere in India
- Very affordable
- Does not feel heavy on the skin
- Prevents breakouts
- Right amount of moistures provided
Cons of Clean and Clear Oil-Free Moisturizer:
IMBB Rating: 4.5/5 (0.5 removed for not having SPF) 🙁
Final Verdict: It is a must try for everyone out there with oily/acne prone skin. This will not disappoint you in any way.
