Clean & Clear has launched two new products from their Advantage line. The first is the Daily Soothing Acne Scrub ($7.49). This scrub contains salicylic acid, which is a common ingredient used to treat and heal acne. Other ingredients also in this product are aloe and avocado.
The second is the Daily Soothing Acne Wash ($6.47), which also contains aloe and avocado. Both of these products are oil-free, so they will not clog your pores or make your skin oilier.
The Daily Soothing Acne Scrub is a flip-top product. It does have micro beads in it — which I find are not too rough on the skin — and work great to help remove any residual makeup that you may have on your skin after using makeup remover/wipes. I really liked using both of these products together.
The Daily Soothing Acne Wash has a pump, and it is your typical foaming wash. I find that you have to use several pumps because it does not foam as much as a typical foaming wash, so you may go through more product faster, but, other than that, I have no issues.
The smell of both of these products are absolutely amazing. The Daily Soothing Acne Wash does have a stronger scent, but essentially it smells like cucumbers and melon to me, rather than aloe and avocado. If you are sensitive to scents you may not like these products, but to me, it was a great pick-me-up for my morning facial routine. I prefer to use the Daily Soothing Acne Wash in the morning and the Daily Soothing Acne Scrub at night.
With regard to clearing my acne, I didn’t find that these were the strongest products, so it would be best for those who have mild breakouts here and there. However, these products did not irritate my skin or cause any additional breakouts from using them.
I liked them enough to finish using them, but I would not personally repurchase these because I tend to have problematic/severe acne-prone skin. I need something a little bit stronger than this. Although, like I said, if you have mild breakouts here and there, or you just want to use something to prevent breakouts, these two items would be perfect for you.
If you have mild acne problems, definitely use these Clean & Clear products, because I think they will not be too strong for your skin, as some of the more intense acne products can be.
