Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Wash

Hi Ladies, I am back with the review of yet another face wash. Yes, my love for face washes and scrubs has not waned a bit and I am trying out new ones as and when I spot them in the supermarkets.

A few weeks back, I had picked up the Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Wash. The beauty aisle was stacked with the Clean and Clear range and the colours were so lovely that I had to pick one.

There were 3 variants:
1. Clean & Clear Morning Energy Shine Control Daily Facial Wash.
2. Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Wash.
3. Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Energising Daily Facial Wash.

If you look closely, the ingredients list also mentions caffeine. I had read a little about all the press that caffeine is gathering in terms of being the latest entrant to the beauty industry.  Here is a little excerpt from the web about caffeine. “Many beauty product companies have added caffeine to products based on a couple of studies that pointed to some potential health benefits of caffeine. The University of Washington in Seattle recently conducted a study in which they exposed healthy skin cells and UV damaged skin cells to caffeine. The caffeine caused the damaged cells to die while not hurting the healthy cells. The second is actually a number of studies that point to caffeine’s anti-inflammatory properties.”

My Experience with Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Wash:

I love citrusy smells and that’s the reason I picked this one up instead of the other two and it did not fail me in the fragrance department. It has such a lovely sweet citrusy smell. Citrusy – obviously because of the lemon and the little sweetness because of papaya. If you have smelt a ripe papaya, you know the kind of the sweet smell I am talking about.

It has tiny little yellow and greenish beads and very micro fine yellow glitter. (Thankfully the yellow glitter did not stay stuck on the face). I tried to capture that in the picture, you will notice it, but not very clearly though. The beads are very soft and smooth and does nothing in my opinion other than add to the glamour quotient of the product. I have to admit that the beads suspended in the face wash was one of the things that attracted me to it.

When you apply it to the skin, it tingles a little and that’s what wakes you up. The first time I tried it, I woke with a start 🙂 It’s like when you apply a sliced lemon to you skin, you feel a kind of tingle. That’s what you feel when you apply the face wash. It lathers well and washes off easily too. It didn’t leave my skin dry or tight. It cleaned it well though.


  • Wakes you up with a zap (probably because of the lemon extracts and menthol).
  • Lovely citrusy smell.
  • Doesn’t leave my skin dry.


  • Lots of parabens.
  • Doesn’t brighten skin or remove tan (I am okay with that as I did not buy it for skin brightening. I got it for the citrusy smell and that works well for me).

  1. I loved the bottle.. and face wash is also looking good.. me wanna try this one.. :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: .. havent seen this bottle here.. is it available in india?

  2. Oooh! Looks nice! :woot: But the ingredients list is a big put off for me. 🙄
    Those beads look so interesting. :dumb: :dumb: Golu golu green and yellow. :dumb: :hihi: :hihi:
    Buuut,I’m pretty sure that this isn’t available in India since I haven’t seen it anywhere. :struggle:
    Nice review,Dee! :teddy:

  3. i dnt remember using clean and clear since teenage i guess. 🙂 I dnt think this variant is available here bt i love the face washes with citrusy fragrance. Used the lakme citrus one this summers and what you wrote about the “awakening” part, it use dto work the same way. Will keep a look out for this one for sure. :thanks:

    1. Even I love face washes with citrusy fragrances…its like you are instantly energised when u use them. And you know what :toothygrin: this is the first Clean and Clear product I have used.

  4. 🙁 not available here 🙁
    but nice review!! I need the waking up formula for winters, its so hard to wake up in morning during winters :toothygrin:

  5. Its available here in Dubai. If u know anyone who lives here, ask them to send it to u. I just started using it. Its pretty good. U feel the tingling sensation. Works well with the matching moisturizer. While it doesn’t remove any tans, it does brighten my skin cos it starts clearing the excess oils ur face produces. But to have the effect, use the moisturizer. Price is around AED 25 for both. Not cheap and not too expensive.
    Smells good and will wake u up instantly
