REVIEW ~ Clean & Clear Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser (Oil-Free)

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Clean & Clear is a drugstore skincare brand. I used to love it as a teenager. Whatever minimum skincare routine I had, it was all from there. As I grew up my skin’s needs changed and I started trying other brands. Recently when my Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser (Click here to read my review on it) was almost finishing I got a little panicked. I usually get backups for all my products well in time but this time around with cleanser I had no idea which one to get next. I thought to repurchase Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Cleanser only but on my way to get it I spotted a gel cleanser by Clean & Clear and after much contemplation picked it up instead.

Clean & Clear Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser (Oil-Free) comes in a 150 ml transparent bottle and has a purple pump. The product is of gel consistency and green in color. Its smell reminds me of detergent and it’s strong.

This cleanser works really nice. I find it gentle on my skin. I use it most mornings before my face wash. It instantly cleans the face of any oiliness or product from last night leaving a pretty clean slate for my face wash. The best thing about it is the way it tingles the skin. It feels so nice and cool. It’s like a jolt of freshness.

It is pretty great with removing makeup too. I don’t purchase makeup removers so any cleanser that helps taking my makeup off completely is always well appreciated. However it doesn’t take off waterproof mascara. I have also noticed if I use it alone sometimes, my skin gets very dry. But as long as I am applying a moisturizer after it, I am all good.

If you are a teenager, this would be a great product for you to use after school or any time in between the day whenever you feel your skin has a lot of dirt or oiliness on it after a game session or some similar activity. It works nicely for adults too. I use it anytime I feel my skin has gone unbearably oily.

I got this cleanser from Lulu Hypermarket Seeb. It was for RO 1.890. Compared to any other drugstore brand, Clean & Clear’s cleanser is half the price and I think it’s pretty good.

A Bit of Shopping

The New Things + First Impression

I did a bit of shopping in last two weeks but they are all random bits so I decided not to do a proper haul post. I will mention them here in pieces though. Let’s start with these two.

Clean & Clear Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser (RO 1.890)

I am almost done with my Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser (Click here for my review about it!) and I wanted something to replace it. First I thought to repurchase it but then I saw Clean & Clear one and thought to give it a try. So far it has been amazing. It is gentle, tingles in a good way and leaves behind a clean skin. I have been using it for over a week now and really like it so much that I have forgot to finish my Neutrogena cleanser. #reminder You will hear all about it soon in a few weeks time.

Wella Pro Series Heat & Shine (RO 2.200)*

I haven’t really spotted a heat protector in any stores here so when I saw Wella Heat & Shine it was a must-buy. My hair is in a bad state right now and the hair fall won’t stop. I thought to do as much as I can to protect whatever is left of my once luscious locks. I have tried this spray just once before I blow dried my hair. The result was pretty good. My hair didn’t go rough. They were smooth, soft and had a shine to it that was never there before. Let’s hope the result is consistent. I will do a post as soon as I have formed a solid opinion.

*You can get it for RO 2.050 from Carrefour

Guys, I might be blogging a bit on and off for the next couple of days because I am having a bit of an eye situation here. Nothing serious, they just need a little off time from the laptop and work. Also, Eid is hardly two days away and things will get pretty hectic from ummm right after I click Publish here, ha. Regular posts will resume from Monday 28th September, if I go MIA. 🙂

Much Love! xx

REVIEW ~ Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

*This review is for anyone who prefers liquid cleansers over milk ones*

IMG_1262

A few days back I did a review on Olay Gentle Cleanser Softening Milk. I had been using Olay’s cleanser for quite a while and I was almost done with the bottle was quite adamant on repurchasing it but then I thought why not try something new and different. Now I’ve had my eyes on Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser for quite a while so I popped into the store one day and bought it. *Best.Decision.Ever.*

I had been using it regularly ever since and trying it in all sorts of situations; bad skin bad, oily-as-eff face day, and on days when I have very less or too much makeup on. I love to experiment a lot with the products I buy. This cleanser aced in every situation. Let me start with it bit by bit.

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser comes in a 177 ml see-through plastic bottle with a white pump. The cleanser is pink in color and is of lose consistency. The smell – OH MY GOD – is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! I didn’t smell it in the store because I was in a rush but once home that’s the first thing I did and after that I couldn’t stop uncapping the bottle n sniffing it a gazillion times. It is such a fruity smell, a very pleasant one that you would want to use this cleanser regularly too. I know what a slacker I am when it comes to cleansing on a no makeup day or when I am tired but I found myself reaching for it willingly every day.

This cleanser is very good at doing its job as well. When you are having an oily skin day it will remove all impurities from your face in a jiffy, literally. It is very good with breaking makeup too on your face. Just one wash and all you makeup will be removed. You will think that maybe you need quite a lot of it but that’s not the case. Just one pump is enough for your face as well as neck. It is liquid which makes it very easy to spread out. You can add a little water to it or you can use it without adding water. Massage it in and after a few minutes wash it off and voila your skin is as clean as a whistle. You wouldn’t need another wash.

I believe it is such a good quality liquid cleanser at a drugstore price that even if you have to buy it after a month or two you wouldn’t mind. I will have a very hard time in picking another cleanser for a while because I am extremely in love with this one.

This review has been posted for a dear friend, S, who isn’t a fan of milk cleansers and find them greasy. I hope you like Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser instead. 🙂

Have you tried Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser? Which cleanser do you prefer?
