Advantages Peel-off action pulls out impurities
Disadvantages Smells a bit
|Value for money|
After reading a positive review on this product online, i was determined to buy it. i quickly got myself an avon catalogue and ordered this blemish solver mask (75ml) for £3.50. as there are always offers in avon i got mine for half price. as well as buying this product, i also bought the targeted blemish remover. now u may be asking why im talking about a completely different product while reviewing another but i do have a perfectly good reason (which i will explain in a bit). i was eager to try the clearskin products because of the good reviews id heard. my skin is fairly dry, but i have a T-zone problem where i frequently get spots. i bought a mask because i preferred that idea to slapping on some spot cream on TOP of a clogged pore. i liked the idea of putting on a mask and peeling it off, pulling out anything inside my pores (pleasant i know).anyway i tried the blemish solver mask out. when i first opened it and smelt it i wasnt too impressed because it smelt of chemicals and i wasnt too sure if i wanted that on my face. however, id come this far already so i thought i may as well try it. after cleansing my face, i applied it to my T-zone and allowed it to dry for 15mins. i usually enjoy peeling off masks but my fun is ruined when it doesnt peel off in one peice. but this mask did, and i think thats quite an advantage. once the whole mask was off i tugged it and it was still pretty tight! the only thing that i think was a disadvantage was that it was quite thin, and i didnt really have any physical proof of lifting away dirt. (and yes there are other products that do literally lift everything out!)
anyway all in all i was kind of disappointed with the product because altho it did make my face look slightly cleaner, i felt as tho it didnt really go deep into my pores. my pores were a little toned and my T-zone was a little less greasy. so for the price i bought it for, the amount of work it did was sufficient.that night i tried the targeted blemish remover. this is supposed to work overnight and is in a 15ml little tube with a special narrow applicator. it costs the same as the other mask at £3.50. it says on the packet that the gel dries overnight and u are supposed to peel it off in the morning. i thought this sounded rather familiar... but i gave it a go. i opened the tube and smelt it (as i usually do with most products) and it smelt the same as the blemish solver mask. but i applied it anyway and thought that they must have just used similar ingredients. however when i peeled it off in the morning it hadnt really done anything more than the blemish solver mask. so i took the targeted blemish remover and the blemish solver mask and had a look at both their ingredients to compare the differences. and what did i find? they were EXACTLY the same! i couldnt believe id spent the same amount of money on a 75ml tube and a 15ml tube. that didnt make me feel very happy at all. the only difference between the two was the way u applied it. i especially didnt like the way each product claimed a different thing. one was a peel off mask, and the other was supposed to work overnight. it didnt really matter because the probly didnt do either seeing as they'd put the same stuff in both products.
because of this i felt disappointed by the clearskin range, as i feel its a little untrustworthy now. i keep thinking 'does it really do as it claims?' it might work for those who get the occasional spot. but personally, if u want to spend money on something, spend it on a company that actually tells the truth. if u get a half price offer on this product, go ahead and have a try but i wont be trying this range again.
