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.
