Review: Clean & Clear Soft Products

Clean & Clear Soft Purifying Cleanser (Scrub, $6.99)- A foaming face scrub that gently removes dirt, oil and impurities with smooth round exfoliating grains as it lathers. It contains natural fruit acids to exfoliate dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores and White tea, a powerful antioxidant known to protect against free radicals caused by the environment. I picked this up at the grocery store when we ran out of face soap. I like it for everyday use in the morning. I've all ready picked up another tube.

Clean & Clear Soft In Shower Facial (Steam, $6.99)- Very similar to Prescriptives Instant Gratification, you wet your face in the shower, spread it onto skin (don't rub yet) and let it sit for one minute. The steam from the water allows the ingredients to deep cleanse pores while infusing moisture. Glycolic Acid, clay, natural fruit acids and exfoliating beads slough away dull, tired skin in an instant. This stuff is awesome. I'm kind of tempted to go out and buy like 50 bottles in case they ever decide to stop making it. Use it and tell me you don't like it.

Clean & Clear Soft Day Moisturizer w/ SPF 15 ($8.49)- A lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer that protects your skin from the sun. I've been using this and like it a lot.

Clean & Clear Soft Night Moisturizer
($8.49)- A lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that contains glycolic acid, natural fruit acids, white tea and a specially formulated moisturizing complex that works through the night. One pump is all you need, it sinks in quickly, moisturizes well, isn't too thick and doesn't smell bad. Great bang for your buck.

Overall, I like all of these items, but if you had to choose just one- let it be Steam. It rocks my world. If blindfolded and forced to discern between Steam and Prescriptives Instant Gratification, I couldn't do it. (And if I could it would only be because of a slight difference in smell.)

As far as drugstore brands go, I have to say that I rank Clean & Clear close to the top. I wonder how the purifying cleanser would differ from Clean & Clear's existing Deep Action Cream Cleanser, which I like. The Steam product also sounds interesting- neat concept of using the shower steam to open up your pores to let the good stuff in.
