Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub Review

Hola Amigos!!!

In this post I am going to review Clean & Clear daily scrub. This scrub is different from typical scrubs as this scrub is scrub cum face wash.

Product claims: Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Daily Scrub has effective micro-scrubbing beads that break down trapped oil, dirt and dead skin. The green apple extract formula penetrates deep into pores to soften stubborn blackheads at the core and prevent new ones from forming. Its gentle exfoliating action leaves your skin beautifully smooth & clear.

Direction of use: Squeeze a small amount on wet palm. As you work into a rich lather, gently massage product all over face, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off thoroughly. Use daily for skin that's clean, clear and beautiful.

Packaging: The packaging is really simple and neat with blue body and visible graphics that has enough details printed on it. The cap is quite good and sturdy.

My opinion about product: Clean & Clear blackhead clearing scrub is a scrub cum face wash. It is almost transparent with extremely micro scrubbing particles, somewhere blue in color. The texture of the scrub is also very soft and hence it is gentle for daily use. It smells quite pleasant like green apples.

To use, I squeezed product on my palm and work into a rich lather. Gently massaged lather onto my face, concentrating on blackhead prone areas like nose and chin. The micro beads melt faster on lathering and hence it lowers the effectiveness of scrubbing. So if we talk about it’s effectiveness, it is comme ci comme ça i.e. it neither too effective nor bad. It is a kind of scrub which can be used as scrub & face wash daily as it is not harsh on skin. This scrub has tendency of drying out skin so need to moisturize your skin after scrubbing.

What I like about this product….

1. Is very gentle for daily use. It is not at all abrasive or harsh on the skin.
2. Leaves the face squeaky clean and I like the feel of my skin after use. My skin feels very soft because after all it is a scrub.
3. Economical.
4. The fragrance is very pleasant.
5. Stands true to its claim of not clogging pores. At times I noticed that the pores on my chin had opened up after using this scrub.
6. Easily available in local as well as online market.

What I do not like about this product….

1. False claim of effectively removes blackheads is Just 3 days.
2. Not suitable for normal and dry skin.
3. Functions more or less like a face wash.
