When you see the word, Clearasil, you probably think of a teen or tween in need during their never-ending battle against acne. I wish that were the case here, but unfortunately, the acne battle has been waging in my own home for over 20 years and the warrior is me. It seems that I've been cursed with a great big 'ol case of "adult acne" and I frequently look to Clearasil to help keep it under wraps.
That's why I jumped at the chance to review the new Clearasil PerfectaWash Automatic Face Wash Dispenser. This little gem provides hardworking facial cleanser in a no-touch dispenser and takes the guesswork out of using the perfect dose of product every time. Keep reading to learn more!
One of the things I hate about having to use acne face washes and other acne fighting creams is the overall drying effect they have on my skin. Having adult acne means that I am caught in a constant fight between keeping my face clear from breakouts and still keeping it moisturized so that I don't cause undo wrinkles and other signs of premature aging. I never thought about it before, but the amount of product you use can be one of the sources of over-drying. Use too much face wash and you could reap those nasty drying side effects, but use too little and there goes your clear complexion.
That's why I couldn't wait to try the new Clearasil PerfectaWash. This automatic acne face wash dispenser guarantees the right amount of product each and every time you use it. Simply follow these usage instructions for clear skin fast:
- Recommended twice daily
- Wet face and hold hand under dispenser for the perfect dose of facial wash
- Lather wash between hands and gently massage face with fingertips for 30 seconds
- Rinse with warm water and pat dry
The Clearasil PerfectaWash dispenser comes complete with 3 "AA" batteries and two 150 mL refills in Superfruit Splash and Soothing Plant Extracts. These acne-fighting face washes claim to help clear your skin in as little as 12 hours and also boast the following:
- Maximum strength acne fighting ingredient - 2% Salicylic Acid
- Dermatologist tested
- Superfruit Splash – energizes and refreshes with raspberry and cranberry extracts
- Soothing Plant Extract – gentle formula with ingredients known to calm and reduce redness
While I don't know whether or not my face got any clearer thanks to the Clearasil PerfectaWash, since I didn't have too many pimples or bumps at the time of my testing, I do know that it definitely helped with my dry skin. I liked using the Superfruit Splash as my morning cleanser and the Soothing Plant Extract as my nightly cleanser and am strongly considering purchasing a second dispenser so that I will no longer have to switch the refill bottles back and forth.
If you happen to have pale skin like me or skin that seems to get red and inflamed easily, you might want to try the Soothing Plant Extract variety first. This definitely seemed to help calm my skin down a bit and not appear so red and blotchy. Both formulas had a terrific smell and lathered well. My face didn't seem dry or itchy afterwards and felt slightly moisturized instead.
If you or someone in your family is busy battling that pesky condition known as acne, then I highly recommend giving the Clearasil PerfectaWash Automatic Face Wash Dispenser a try. Both face wash formulas contain maximum strength acne medication and are dermatologist tested to give you visibly clearer skin without over-drying. The Ultra Rapid Action formulas deep clean pores and treat acne for a clearer complexion. With visibly clearer skin in as little as 12 hours, you'll definitely feel more confident about your skin!
