How are you all doing? I am back with a review on a cleanser from the brand “clean & clear”. I have used almost all the products from this brand and I have pretty much liked their products, so I thought I would give this one a try too. I have had oily skin and during my teenage, the acne I used to get was a serious nightmare. Every morning I got up, there used to be a new one on my face. Although now I don’t face that problem much but a little break-outs here and there still haunt me. But still its summer time so just as a preventive measure I picked this one up.
Price: Rs 85 (80 g)

My take on Clean and Clear Acne Clearing Cleanser
So starting with the packaging, genuinely I did not like the packaging. I get attracted easily towards colourful, cute packaging but this one is a big plastic tube white in colour with purple fonts on it which is pretty boring. When it is lying in your washroom, it is so dull that at times I don’t feel washing my face with it. It gives a medicated face wash look but obviously we are more interested in how the product works on the skin. So coming to that, the cleanser is transparent white in colour and the consistency is similar to the face-wash. It is very gentle on the skin too. It feels very light when you apply it. It lathers pretty well. The smell is like a mixture of wax and menthol. It does not have wax but I am just trying to describe the smell. It smells exactly like pepper mint.
It provides a nice cooling sensation (which I like) and makes you feel refreshed and that is because of the ingredient menthyl lactate. Talking about the claims, it cleaned up my face pretty well and my skin did not feel oily at all after using this. I also used it after removing my make-up and it removed the make-up residues pretty well. It did control my acne to a certain extent but it will not work for people who suffer from severe acne breakouts.
This product has salicylic acid which works very well for acne but for my skin benzoyl peroxide works better. Although I was happy that it did not dry out my skin like the other acne treating products. So overall it is a good product and does what it claims. But I will stick to my acne products that I have been using for past 3 years. I have ordered those products from USA. I will get them by July when my uncle comes because they are neither available in India nor online.
PROS of Clean and Clear Acne Clearing Cleanser:
• Easy to carry
• Easily available
• Affordable price
• Quantity is very good and will last for a month
• Does what it claims
• Skin did not become dry
• I did not face any breakouts at the time of using this
CONS of Clean and Clear Acne Clearing Cleanser:
• Will not cure severe acne
• Dull packaging
Will I repurchase/recommend it?
Yes I recommend this cleanser during summers as it provide a cooling sensation and a gives a refreshing feeling too. It will cure minor acne problems so if you don’t have those big issues for acne, then you can surely try this one. I will not actually repurchase this as benzoyl peroxide products work better for me.
