Here is again a review for acne-prone skin because personally I think this is the worst skin problem among all the skin problems that I have faced. In my early teens I started getting pimples and I was really not aware as to what to pick and what not. I bought it first time during that period and this is the third bottle. As time passed by I came across IMBB and started to learn about all the things that could cure my acne. Recently I was waiting for my acne kit to come from USA and for the time being I was using this ctm routine which had clean and clear acne clearing cleanser, clean and clear blackhead clearing cleanser being the toner and this one as the moisturizer. So let’s sum up the details about this product.
Price: Rs 50 for 50 ml
Company claims: The oil free formula moisturizes without greasiness and does not clog pores. Salicylic acid helps prevent pimples and blackheads. It leaves your skin feeling clean and beautifully clear.
Directions: Apply evenly on face and neck. Use twice daily for skin that’s clean, clear and beautiful.
My take on Clean and Clear Skin Balancing Moisturiser:
I am using a kit from acnefree for my pimple routing; the cleanser and toner are quite good in quantity but the lotion comes in a small bottle so gets over very soon. So the moment it was over I got this one to use in the routine. In my early teens also I got attracted towards the name clean and clear and bought it. This moisturizer comes in a white oval kind of a bottle and a purple cap which is a flip open one with a nozzle. The nozzle is perfectly designed, not very big like some other products which reduce the product wastage by giving out the quantity we want. I wish it was colourful in packaging but that is fine, you cannot get everything you want lol. The quantity is of the moisturizer is just half in the bottle but that is fine because after using it for few days I feel like when is this going to get over so that I can get all the new products.
The consistency is not runny at all, it has the best consistency and becomes a perfect moisturizer as you apply it and it blends and gets absorbed into the skin like a dream. The fragrance is a nice one and not at all irritating. It has a cute baby smell which I love. The skin may feel greasy for a minute or two but later it starts to soak in and the skin becomes absolutely normal. My skin tends to get oily after just 2 hours of washing my face and it becomes really irritating because you don’t want to look like a warm bread with butter melting all over your face. This helps me out with that. After applying this, my skin becomes oily after like 3 or 3 and a half hour which is good. I apply this in the morning after taking bath and need to put my BB cream on because this one does not contain spf and I follow it with a compact. It works the best overnight. Your pimples will not really go but have patience and you can see that the size is reducing and the redness is going as in just 50 bucks you cannot conquer the world. But it does give out satisfactory results. I use all the 3 things together mentioned above which helps up in healing the acne or pimples faster.
This will not work out in winters or for ladies with dry skin because it is not that moisturizing and you will be able to see the dry skin even after applying this. I love this brand and liked this product too and currently I am using acne free but as soon as the lotion from the kit gets over, I’ll come back to this one.
Pros of Clean and Clear Skin Balancing Moisturiser:
-A complete range of products available for ctm routine from the same brand
-Handy and the nozzle is perfect
-Nicely moisturizes my skin after taking bath
-Does not feel greasy or oily on skin
-Pimple size and redness will reduce but with patience
-Oil secretion is prevented; my skin first used to become oily in 2 hours after washing the face and after putting this one on it becomes oily after 3 or 3 and a half hour
Cons of Clean and Clear Skin Balancing Moisturiser:
-Will not be moisturizing enough for dry skin
-Not suitable for winters
-No SPF present
Will I repurchase/ recommend it?
Yes I will if you are looking for an affordable product. I have got use to it and I do not like trying new products for acne because you never know how they could react on your skin.
