I bought this Clean and Clear cleansing lotion from a local discount store for just £1.50 which I thought was a very good price. It comes in a 200ml clear plastic bottle and it has a blue flip top with a hole in the top and you just need to gently squeeze the bottle to release the liquid.
The lotion itself has quite a fresh and clean smell and I can still smell this on my face for some time after using the lotion. I use it on my face and neck and I can feel it absorbing into my skin. I will tip the cleanser out onto a cotton wool pad or cotton wool ball and then gently rub it over my face but keeping clear of my eyes as I like to use a separate eye make up remover.
As I am using it I can feel a lovely coolness instantly and my face always feels very fresh and clean afterwards. I am always surprised at the amount of dirt on the cotton pad even if I am not wearing any make up as it is surprising how much dirt which can accumulate on your face during the day. After use I will sometimes apply a toner and then moisturiser or sometimes just a moisturiser to complete my cleansing routine.
I have been very pleased with the results of this cleanser. It is probably not one which I would normally choose but it was really the one suitable one for me at the time when I bought it. I have been using this cleanser now for about three months and I have not used even a quarter of it so it is good value.
The feel of this cleanser really makes you feel like your face is being cleansed, if that makes any sense. It's fresh and has that slight sting that makes you feel it's actually making a difference (NB: the sting is very faint, nothing to worry about). You can see the evidence of the cleansing on the cotton wool, and see the difference in your skin quite quickly.
It was fairly cheap (in comparison to a lot of skin products out there), and very simple and quick to use each morning and night.
The only problem I have with it is the taste - sometimes, I can't help wiping it too close to my lips, which leaves a nasty taste on them for a while. In addition, if I wipe it a little too close to my eyes, it can sting a bit - even without touching the eyes. However, it does its job, and you can't ask fairer than that.
Clean and Clear is great for those with spots. It really does prevent them.
I don't like the smell of this. It is really clinical and reminds he of the dentist! However, I like the fact that this smell reminds me of cleanliness and so as I use it, I feel that I am getting really clean.
You use this cleanser on cotton wool and wipe over your face. It recommends you do this lightly but I tend to have a good thorough scrub at my face with it. Not sure why, I just don't feel clean unless I put some elbow grease into it!
You can see so much dirt on the cotton wool, even if you have already cleaned with soap and water. It really does unclog pores and prevent spots. It dries the skin though so I tend to use a moisturiser afterwards which might well re-clog them. But since using it, I haven't had many spots.
A 150ml bottle will set you back about £2.80. It lasts quite well and is much cheaper than many other alternative cleansers. This is a very reasonable cleanser that works well at preventing spots.
I first started using this product back in 1995. I'm not sure if it's roughly that time it came out, but I've been using this off and on since then.
Clean and Clear is manufactured by Johnson and Johnson. You can buy this product in normal and sensitive. I used the normal one once and found it was quite harsh on my skin, so I switched to the sensitive, which doesn't nip at all. The 2 different liquids have slightly different ingredients, and the colour is different. In the normal lotion it is orange, and the sensitive one is light blue.
I would say this is more designed to help with spots or oily skin. As I have oily skin and even dry patches on my cheeks and I do get a few spots. I used to use Clearasil, but found that was a bit harsh for me as well.
Although this does help with spots, I feel this is great helping with my oily skin. It doesn't dry my skin out, but it kind of strips the oil away and mattifies and takes the shine away.
The bottle design is standard. It is a clear plastic bottle, so you can see the liquid through it. It has a blue plastic flip lid, The stick on label on the bottle looks a bit clinical with little blue squares for a picture.
The standard price of this is around £2.70-£3.00. Not many offers on this product for money off, but sometimes you can buy 2 things in the Clean and Clear range for £5.
A good product that seems to work well and it is relatively inexpensive. I would always recommend buying the sensitive one, even if you don't have sensitive skin
Clean and Clear cleansing lotion has been around for a long time. i started using it in 1995 when i was 13 and had begun to show the signs of acne now my acne did get worse but this isnt because the product didnt work, i found out that the reason for my skins decline was nothing to do with the products that i was using but was a hormonal inbalance and no over the counter treatment would clear them up. (i advise anyone with acne to not waste their money on store bought products to try and clear their skin but to do straight to the doctors where you can get medicine that will work and for free!) Now, i still needed a cleanser to use to remove all the makeup i was wearing to school to try and cover the spots and my mother bought me this in the sensitive version (which is blue not red as in the picture) as my skin had become very tender at the time. it was a large 200ml bottle and it remains the same size now, (so many things have become smaller these days!) i needed a very deep cleanser to remove the foundation concealer and powder i was using and clean and clear always did the job excellently leaving my skin tingling clean and spots not irritated.
i have begun to use this product again recently as i remember how effective it was and i use it to remove the makeup i use now - not as much as i used to wear! i prefer to use a lotion to remove it rather than soap as i feel it cleans deeper into my skin, it also works as a toner so no separate bottle needed. im happy to be able to recommend this product as something ive used for half my life on and off and im sure i will continue to do so.
Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Lotion is designed to fight oil, to cleanse deeply and help remove spots. It removes the everyday build-up of dirt, oil and grease that soap and water just can't reach. It is completely effective when used on its own as a one-step cleanser but also works very well at tightening pores, refreshing and toning your skin after you've washed your face.
I personally swear by this stuff, it kept me 90% spot free through my teenage years plus it got rid of most of the oil, grease and dirt that tends to just build up on your face during the day that you don't notice. It is such an effective cleaner that it even takes off my makeup better than some of the makeup removal wipes I've used.
It needs to be applied to a cotton wool pad and then wiped over your face. I find that I can actually feel it tightening my pores and it does sting slightly as it goes over any spots etc. When I'm finished I can normally see the change immediately.
If used twice a day, once when you get up and once just before bed then you should begin to notice a radical change in your skin, it will be visibly a lot clearer, smoother and more radient.
The lotion itself isn't thick like many facial lotions are, it actually resembles orange water. It's small is quite strong but nice.
I think this is another fantastic product from clean and clear. I recommend it to anybody who wants clearer, smoother or just healthier looking skin. A great product and it only costs about £3 to buy a 200ml bottle!
Clean & Clear Cleansing Lotion is an invigorating, clinically tested product which cleans effectively to remove the dirt, oil and grease that soap and water cannot reach, plus it's tingling sensation tells you that your skin has been thoroughly cleansed /
