I don't often receive products to trial, but this arrived in the post (my first parcel at my new address!), and I was absolutely delighted as I love this scrub, and had just squeezed out the last dollop from the tube I'd had for around 6 months - perfect timing! I did a mini-review of it last November, but it deserves a whole page to itself, so here we go...
I still can't get used to the fact that Clearasil products work so well on my mature skin - in fact if it wasn't for beautyheaven sending a sample of the brilliant Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts Wash almost two years ago, I would have continued on thinking that the Clearasil range was wholly and solely for young troubled skin. But I'm always happy to have my opinion changed, especially when I find something that works so well, and this scrub is a honey ♥
When it comes to bathroom products, my preference is for fruit fragrances, and this Raspberry & Cranberry combination is refreshing and zingy without being overpowering. The pretty pale pink cream is not at all difficult to dispense, but has a very thick and rich consistency - I far prefer this to some scrubs that are more liquid as they have tendency to slip through my fingers, and that means waste..
You can see how firm it is in the above pic, and if you look closely you can also spot some teeny little deeper pink exfoliating grains. There are much finer ones too that aren't visible, but together with the Coconut and Salicylic acid, they do a beaut job of scaring away blackheads and sloughing off flaky skin cells, leaving a surface that silky smooth and ready for moisturiser and foundation...
When I first try a new scrub, I use it daily for at least a week to see how well it performs, and to find out if it's going to dry my skin at all - no such problem with this little darling. There's not even a hint of tightness, and I like the fact that my face feels super clean, but not stripped. The label actually says it can be used every day, both morning and night - at my age I reckon that's a wee bit excessive, but I'd say it's gentle enough to not cause any issues if you are so inclined.
In my earlier review I said this was a keeper, and that's still the case. At $10.99 it's excellent value, and you can pick it up at most supermarkets ♥ If you're interested, there's a helpful skin care guide on the Clearasil website, and of course they also make a deep cleansing scrub for those folk dealing with pimples and breakouts.
Thank you Clearasil for sending me something that I know and love, precisely when I needed it ♥
Take care of you,
