    Clearasil StayClear Daily Face Wash Sensitive

    Leaves skin soft and smooth

    I've been using this face wash 2x a day (morning and bedtime) for two weeks now, and I really like it. It's very silky and creamy, and when I was it off my face feels incredibly soft and smooth. The blackheads on my nose are in pretty good shape, not perfect, but better than they were. I've only had a couple of very small pimples in the time that I've been using it, just small surface ones on their own, no deep cysts or clusters of pimples like I usually get. I have had no problems with sensitivity using this product. Just don't get any in your eyes, it'll still sting! Overall a really great product for a really great price. I may still experiment with other brands occasionally but this will definitely be a standby because it works pretty well and leaves my skin feeling wonderful.

  • Patricia Wexler M.D. Anti-Acne Starter Kit

    I'm a fair-skinned 30 yr old who still has trouble with acne, mostly in the form of occasional large pimples on my cheeks and chin. I tend to be very bad about squeezing and picking, which leaves behind reddish/purplish marks on my skin for weeks afterward. So I decided I should try something like this as much for preventing pimples as for treating the ones I have. But I had a hard time deciding what system I wanted to try, and how much money to invest in it. I saw this starter kit in Bath & Body Works and tried it on the recommendation of a staff member there. It cost about $30, and even using most of the products twice a day they lasted me about 3-4 weeks, which I thought was a reasonable price and a good time-frame for trying out a new system. Overall I'm very happy. I love the exfoliating scrub, which is the finest (in terms of grain size) and gentlest I've ever used. It has a faint but pleasant fragrance, and leaves your skin feeling very soft and clean, and looking glowy. I use it morning and night followed by the acne lotion, and then I use the spot cream on existing pimples. If it's the morning I'll follow up with the oil-free moisturizer, which is spf 30. I have slightly sensitive skin but haven't had a problem with any of these products. No dryness or flaking whatsoever. I still get occasional pimples but they go away faster, and any reddish spots they leave behind fade a lot faster too. I'm also thrilled that the blackheads on my nose and chin, which have always been a problem for me, have diminished considerably. I didn't anticipate that result but I'm really glad about -- for the first time that I can remember my nose isn't speckled with large dark pores! Overall I give this a 9/10: only one loss of a star for the fact that it hasn't completely eliminated pimples for me (my birth control pill may be to blame); otherwise, I'm very happy with the results, and have gone back to buy the bigger sized bottles. Definitely would recommend!
