Welcome to today's lesson. Please sit comfortably and learn from my experiences. As you've all clicked on this review, you have chosen to be here, so please be respectful and pay attention (and please give me a nice high rating so I can feel pleased with the time I have put in to teach you all!)Doesn't everyone know about Clearasil? I first heard of it years and years ago. It just seems like one of the most advertised spot treatment brands around.
(Let's get this lesson started!)
A small 20g tube with the usual Clearasil theme colours: red, white and blue.
The meager tube is stored in a rather roomy box, probably especially designed so as to make the product appear larger, and therefore attract customers. The colour theme on the box is identical to the tube.
On front of the tube, 'Clearasil' is written, slanted towards the top, and below, 'Active Treatment Cream', and directly underneath: 'Breaks the spot cycle'
Right at the bottom, 'Colourless' is lettered. (There is also a 'Coloured' version, which is like a spot cream/concealer. I have never tried this product before)
The cream is tinted yellow in colour, and scented of a soapy-clean smell, although slightly medicinal.
It is quite creamy, although also quite water-based and easily absorbed.
Also, it reduces oil in area applied, which is a huge bonus for people with shiny nose/forehead.
I dab a little of the cream on my nose, and this leaves it wonderfully matte. When a little loose face powder is brushed over this, it leaves it with a natural, shine-free complexion for a long time.
Just in case any of you are allergic to any particular ingredients, this will hopefully make things easier for you. Here goes:Aqua, Alcohol, Bentonite, Sulfur, Dibutyl, Adipate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, PEG-12, Propylene Glycol, Carbomer, Parfum, Methylparaben, Triclosan, Triethanolamine, Propylparaben.
Looks like it just jumped off a page in a chemistry book, I know, but even the simplest of products seem to contain many scientific-looking ingredients. Seeing as I don't know a lot about this aspect, I think I'll move on now.
You should apply the cream twice daily, after cleansing and toning (and with clean hands!) to problem areas and individual spots. However, when I have one particular bad spot, I apply it several times throughout the day, and this is perfectly fine and helps it to clear up in less time. Remeber to wash hands after each application just in case you put your fingers in your mouth/rub your eyes afterwards.
We all have spots at one point in our lives (except Miss.Barbie ) and chances are, if you're here right now, you're probably interested in finding an effecive spot treatment. ...Well, you've found it!
As I'm on my second tube right now, you might probably have guessed that I like what this spot cream is doing for me.
Small tube? Maybe. Medicinal smell? Uh-huh.
But that's more than I can say for flowery scented creams and potions that merely just aggrevate and worsen the little bugggers!
Yes, this cream actually works. It helps dry out the spots, and add a little time and it will shrink the enemy to half its size. Haha! Revenge is sweet.
This cream is also mild enough to dab onto problem areas to help keep spots at bay, and at £3.20 for approximately two months, it won't break the bank. I think we've come onto a winner.
