Clean and Clear Deep Action Cleanser

Review Clean and Clear Deep Action Cleanser

Claims - A long lasting oil-free look..

Review Clean and Clear Deep Action Cleanser

Packaging - Comes in a tube with a flip-open cap.  Hygenic, yes, but the first few times I used this, it was almost impossible to get anything out of the tube.  I opened the cap and checked thinking there was some kind of a flap covering the opening, but no, it was just terribly thick paste that just could not be squeezed out.  After a few days though, its coming out okay.

First a bit of a disclaimer:  I think Clean and Clear targets teenage skin, which generally is more oily and acne prone.  I have acne-prone combination skin, but I agree it is not a teenage oily skin.  Plus, I stay in Bangalore, a very drying climate at this time of the year.

Directions for Use:

Review Clean and Clear Deep Action Cleanser


My experience with the product:  I found this product extremely drying.  Fine, its meant for oily skin, and mine might not be that oily after all.  However, Clean and Clear "Deep Action" Cleanser seems to go deep into my skin and strip just about everything EXCEPT the dirt.  After washing with this, and wiping my face with a toner-soaked cotton pad, I would always find some residue from my makeup or whatever outside world residue was on my face.  I even tested this to be sure - dabbed some MaxFactor cream blusher on my cheeks and washed with this cleanser.  Dry dull face, but when wiped with the cotton pad, I managed to pick up some blush residue.  So there you have it, miraculous product, deep cleans to give you an oil-free, stripped-face, like you were out strolling in Antartica without a face cream (it is how I think it would be like in Antartica since Ms. Hermioneeeeeee Rati clarified in the comments), but leaves the dirt alone.

I have not got any breakouts with using this.  However, I try to follow this with the Kama Ayurveda soap-free cleanser, and I don't know if the credit goes to that or the face wash.

Needless to say, I am not recommending this to anyone.  Oh wait, if you want to get a gift for the irritating teenage niece you just lovvvvvvvvvve, you can get her this!

Another disclaimer:  This is purely my opinion of the product.  A very inexpensively priced product (I don't remember the cost, but it was one of the cheapest ones on the shelf), you can always try it - never know, it might work for you.

  1. It has glycerin in it , which should supposedly be non drying. Atleast this strips off moisture, that neutrogena doesnt even do that. :P It's ll applying some paste on your face and then wash it off and you before and after facial skin feels just the same.

  6. Hi Rads
    Silent reader de-lurking :)
    Try the basic clean and clear in the bottle if you can -- its really good :)
    I tried one of these "Specialist" versions too(acne clearing) and its so useless

  7. Hii Silent Reader De-Lurking :D :D Basic Clean and Clear in a bottle - the transparent/clear gel kinds - that didn't work for me either, was too mild I think - but it was ages back.

  9. Hii Anshita..I actually didn't have a problem that it was drying. That's expected of it if it claims an oil-free look, but I dislike the fact that for something so drying it does such a poor job of removing the grime. I should save some and try it in Kerala, face gets oily very fast there too :D

  10. I normally clean with a cleansing milk and then wash my face with this. This trick works in summer when i have litres of oil on my skin. even then I follow up with a light moisturizer to get my skin back to health. never going to repurchase this. :(
    True, this time we should try making our own skin care products. :P
