Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser

Date Thu, May 29 2008


Unfortunately, I’ve had to go through a lot of brands and formulas for face wash. Since my teens, I’ve had acne that has persisted but never has been consistent. While I’ve never had horrible breakouts, I always seem to have at least 2 blemishes, if I have any. Although my acne is now the ‘adult’ type appearing usually on the chin rather than adolescent forehead acne, it can still be frustrating.

I was intent on buying a new cleanser after the one I had been using seemed to have stopped working so well. I have never been a fan of Neutrogena products as they seem chock full of chemicals, so I skipped those. Unfortunately, the BX didn’t offer than many other options so I looked in the Clean & Clear section, which I often use. In fact, the cleanser I was looking to replace was Clean & Clean (though it wasn’t meant to fight acne).

I settled on the Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser in a pretty purple tube.. It boasted a grand 10% active ingredient (benzoyl peroxide) and I hoped that it would live up to the name and have continuous effects on my skin well after the washing.

There isn’t much one can say about these types of things. There’s no assembly and no parts; either Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser works or it doesn’t.

It works. Probably due to the high concentration of active ingredient. Most cleansers seem to have only 1 or 2% active ingredient and Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser contains 5 – 10 times that amount. Benzoyl peroxide is also an alternative I’ve only seen in this product this far; Salicylic acid seems to be the preferred active ingredient in most acne cleansers. I must say, I think I’m a fan of benzoyl peroxide now.

My face cleared up quickly and, although I’ve had a blemish or two since, I haven’t been faced with oily skin in the morning either or any big break outs. Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanse) seemed to start working immediately; making the switch usually doesn’t show results that fast. I even stopped using my face wipe pads which I would use in addition to cleansing my face in the shower.

Beware that this does have quite a strong chemical smell. It would probably work great to clear up a stuffy nose; some days it seems to burn my mouse and nose. It’s something to use sparingly but, really, just a small dab of the creamy Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser should suffice to wash one’s whole face.

If you’re looking for an effective acne-fighting cleanser without a prescription or high price tag, head down to your local drug store and pick up Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser.

I’m Cole and I approve of this product!
