Reviews on Clean & Clear Active Clear line

Before I start this review, please disregard all previous posts concerning my journey on battling with acne/pimples. From the amazing review of Kojie-san soap to the quick fix routine of Cetaphil/panoxyl as all of them sucks after I blogged about them.

Overview on my never ending battle with Acne/Pimples:
My skin is really really clear for months upon using Kojie-san soap. 



(see no acne/pimple, only eyebags -__-)


But things tend to turn upside down, I started breaking out, like SEVERE break-out. 





(烂脸)

Kojie-san soap does makes my skin clear and blemish free for prolly a month long but break me out for 2-3months and leave permanent dark acne/pimple mark/spots all over my face.

I'm completely sure that Kojie-san is the main suspect of my break-out cuz' I did NOT use/put anything on my face aside from Kojie-san.

(BTW, the reason why I didn't go to derma despite the severity is because I don't have the money and I don't know which derma clinic to visit -___- )

So I quickly threw all the kojie-san soaps and switched to Defensil and Panoxyl routine which you can read here. And other self- experimental routine, as you can read here and here but none works. After spending $$$$$$$$ but still stuck with overly gross ACNE/PIMPLE skin.

As mentioned in previous entries, I am the laziest person on planet so I don't want to use 3545234242 products and follow 3864736553 steps for a daily skincare routine.

Since I can't stand my overly gross pimple face, I kept on googling stuff (acne/pimple related) and came across Clean & Clear Active Clear Line whereas a lot of good feedback were stated in the forum. I rushed into Watson's bought the set and realized it has 82637637 steps to follow!!! >_<  Okay fine, I overeacted its just a 4 step regime but that's already too much for me. -___-


Overview of CLEAN & CLEAR® Active Clear® Acne Control Kit :
CLEAN & CLEAR® Active Clear® Acne Control Kit has 4 powerful acne-fighting products containing salicylic acid that work together to effectively help treat and prevent acne. When used twice a day, these 4 technologies are proven to work faster and more powerfully against acne.



Active Clear Acne Control Cleanser – The first step of the acne-fighting regimen goes beyond cleansing to penetrate pores. It contains bacteria-fighting salicylic acid that calms and soothes acne-irritated skin.
Active Clear Acne Control Toner – The second step is the highly functioning oil-free toner that works to reduce excess oil, which clogs pores, for effective pimple prevention. The combination of salicylic acid and natural botanical ingredients tones and balances skin.

Active Clear Acne Control Moisturizer – The third step of the regimen is the use of an oil-free moisturizer that provides a hint of moisture to soften and nourish skin, while containing a breakthrough anti-acne technology to help prevent pimples. With salicylic acid to clear and prevent acne, the natural herbal vitamin ingredients in the Active Clear Acne Control Moisturizer also nourish the skin and prevent it from drying.

Active Clear Acne Control Speed Gel – An exciting add-on to the acne-fighting regimen is a highly effective spot treatment that starts working immediately to reduce redness, pimple size and swelling in as little as 4 hours. The combination of salicylic acid and an herbal essence acne-fighting technology visibly reduces acne – fast!

My reviews:
Upon further googling, this product is best suitable for people ages 12-23. I'm uhmm 25, but this products works for me! it simply means I have 12y.o. skin.... nyehehe =P

I just tried this line for like uhmmm 1 week, but it really really does wonder!!! Okay I don't wanna blog about it yet, because I'm not sure if it might mess up again but I just can't help it.
I tell you there's no peeling, reddish stage for this line(unlike Panoxyl and Defensil), you immediately see the results overnight! Initially, I thought Salicylic acid won't work for me cuz' I already tried the overly priced Shiseido blemish free gel which contains salicylic acid.

But boy I was WRONG!!

Benzoyl Peroxide is the one that is NOT suitable for me. The reason why I experience Redness and peeling upon application is because it was TOO HARSH on my skin. (because i have a 12y.o. skin okay!)

Overall review:
4steps is so easy considering I'm a lazy person anyone will find this regime a piece of cake...

Pros:
Step 1: Active Clear Acne Control Cleanser
- Cleanse face thoroughly
- does not dry skin
-smoothness after wash

Cons:
- might experience stingy while washing (just a tiny bit)
- smell is not that nice but totally tolerable

Step 2: Active Clear Acne Control Toner
Pros:
- easy to apply
- does not dry skin

Cons:
 - might experience stingy while washing (just a tiny bit)

Step 3: Active Clear Acne Control Moisturizer
Pros: 
- not oily
- easy to apply
- non greasy
-moisturez skin thoroughly 

Cons:
-NONE

Step 4: Active Clear Acne Control Speed Gel 
Pros:
- easy to apply
- just a pea-sized will do
- works overnight especially to fresh pump pimple/acne

Cons:
 - might experience stingy while washing (just a tiny bit)

After using for prolly 1 week or 2, here's what Clean&Clear has achieved:


PINKISH GLOWING SEMI-CLEAR FACE!!!


(PS: please pray that this will be the last product I would use and won't break me out anymore......)

  4. Hi I'm 13. Can I use Kojie san already? /:(

  5. @Anonymous: it really depends, it works fine for me during the intial use but later not that effective anymore..
    @Anonymous: Not really sure though, I think not yet...because kojie san contains some ingrdients that might still be too harsh for a very young skin...but you can always consult the SA for sure..

    1. Hi dear! hindi ko na ginagamit yun routine na ito since I don't have that much pimple anymore. BP can really make your face red since it is quite a harsh ingredient. Do followed it with a calming moisturizer such as aloe vera and it might help on minimizing the redness. I encountered that too when using BP, redness and peeling of skin. If you think masyadong harsh yun BP sa skin mu try switching to a milder ingredients such as salicylic acid, retinol or AHA more info check here:http://allaboutjyl.blogspot.com/p/acne-reviews.html

      Also, if you have sensitive skin you might want to try using the YOKO cream as it is quite an effective spot treatment for me. It contains salicylic acid and AHA to combat acne which I have reviewed here: http://www.allaboutjyl.blogspot.com/2011/12/review-yoko-acne-solution-cream.html

      Hope this helps! =)

    1. natry ko yun cetaphil pero para sakin hindi ko cya masyado feel kasi super mild cya for me. Kung super sensitive skin mu, cetaphil is an option pero kung hindi naman you may opt to try other cleansers. Yun bagong labas ng Garnier na anti-acne wash is quite good, you may want to try it kung hindi sensitive skin mu and na-review ko cya dito: http://allaboutjyl.blogspot.com/2012/05/short-reviews-dove-ponds-pure-beauty.html

      Hindi ako umiinom ng supplements kasi tumataba ako everytime. I've tried MyraE, AcneCare, etc mostly nagiging bloated face ko at hindi naman gumagaling pimples ko kaya sa wash and pahid pahid nalang ako lagi. Thanks for your super nice comment ^_~

    1. hi sis, try using toner, it helps minimize oiliness. Nagmamakeup ako pero once nafeel ko tinubuan ako ng pimples after using a certain makeup, I'll stop using that makeup kasi it just means that hindi hiyang yun makeup sa skin ko. I guess may ingredients hindi bagay sa skin mu with the makeup you are using thus the reason. Try using toner only on the oily areas and just leave out the areas that are dry. Hope this helps =)

    1. hello dear, I'm not really sure on whiteheads as I am only familiar with acne related products. But you might want to try the aztec mask as it really helps dip deep and clears out all the dirt in skin. You can find my review here:http://allaboutjyl.blogspot.com/2012/05/aztec-indian-healing-clay-review-fotd.html

      Hope this helps =)

  20. Hi ! My aunt is a dermatologist and she told me that acne will stop forming when we reach the age of 24.

    Unless!
    It is on your family's genes.
