Clearasil are an incredibly well-known brand, and the top selling skin care and acne medication orientated brand on the market. I recently received (as part of the Glamour magazine reader panel) the brands latest product – the Clearasil DailyClear Perfectawash.
Described as an ‘Automatic face wash refill’ with ‘superfruit extracts & Vitamin E’, this product is the latest in a long line of brilliant skincare products from the brand. Although not widely available as of yet (predominantly available in the US), I predict big things for this product. The new product has a beautiful design and is not a product you’d be embarrassed to have on display in your bathroom. However, there is one design flaw.
If you follow me on Twitter, you may recall me posting a picture of the above dispenser and asking you what you thought it was – most people said a soap or handwash dispenser, and I can see why you would think that! I wanted to keep this in my bathroom, but my guests kept trying to use it as a handwash instead (this would be the one flaw)! Perhaps a more prominent brand name across the front of the product would deter people from making the same mistake. The product has a convenient on/off function which prevented me from running out of the facewash prematurely – although plenty of my friends had fun playing with it – overall, a big hit!
Enough of the aesthetics, to the product itself.
The product is not only designed as an acne treatment, but also doubles up as a cleanser and moisturiser for the skin.
I have been an avid user of Clearasil since my early teens – although I do not suffer from acne, I have been battling dry skin for most of my teenage life, and have been using a range of moisturisers over the years to combat this situation. I cannot comment on the prevention of spots (as aforementioned, I rarely suffer from them), but can say my skin has felt much more refreshed and revitalised than before. I have also found that this product is a fantastic make up remover, however it stings like hell if it makes contact with an open wound!
The facewash is very fruity in scent, and foams up rather nicely, to make applying it to my face easy and a pleasurable experience, and the motion sensor allows me to apply the perfect amount every time, ensuring the product lasts for its full 100 dispenses (the product is said to last roughly 7 weeks, if used twice a day). The sensor works by placing your hand under the tap-like feature, and expels a set amount of product into your palm. The dispenser is hands-free which also means no mess when applying your product.
The Clearasil DailyClear Perfectawash will be available for retail in the UK as of January 2012, retailing for a price of approximately £12.99. I do not know which stores, other than Superdrug, which will be stocking the item, and I am also uninformed of where you can purchase/how much the refills will be.
What are your thoughts on this product? Could you see yourself using something like this on a daily basis?
I personally see this as a product of the future, and a must-have for most teens who care about the condition of their skin.
