Pimples, meet your match! Clean & Clear’s Soft In-Shower Facial ($7) kicks clogged pores to the curb, quickly, and on the cheap.
I’ve been using this stuff for about two weeks now, and the results have been akin to watching a shirtless Jack Black run around in stained tighty whities — gross, yet awesome at the same time.
The company claims In-Shower Facial does double duty, thoroughly cleaning the skin with exfoliating grains and alpha hydroxy (glycolic) acids while moisturizing at the same time. I call this stuff magic in a bottle because it actually lives up to the claims. All kidding aside, my skin looked clearer and felt softer immediately after using it.
Over the weekend, a gang of tiny pimples set up shop on my chin. I used In-Shower Facial on Monday, and by this morning the three baddest members of the gang had all but disappeared — and this was without a secondary acne treatment. Purified pores was what I wanted, and that’s exactly what I got.
I’ve had to exercise restraint because I get really tempted to pop my pimples. Yup, gross. So far I’ve resisted the urge.
To treat mild to moderate breakouts, I also like Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment, applied once in the morning and once at night.
Fast and Cheap… But In a Good Way
Not only does In-Shower Facial make quick work of small pimples, it’s quick and easy to use. I followed the simple directions on the back of the tube, using the treatment in place of my regular cleanser while in the shower. I slathered a layer of the powder-scented paste onto my face (avoiding my eyes), waited a minute, massaged my skin gently to exfoliate, and then rinsed. The paste warms a little as it’s rubbed on the skin. I think it feels nice.
To top it all off, this baby is mad affordable and carried at drugstores nationwide. Look for it online or at your local drugstore. Price tag: $7!

In-Shower Facial is one of the members of Clean & Clear’s Soft line, which includes Purifying Cleanser ($7), Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($9) and a Night Moisturizer ($9). I haven’t tried these other members of the line yet, but now I really want to! I hope they’re just as great.
Along with my never-ending battle with acne is my never-ending battle against dark circles! If I have time today after work, I’d like to hit the Benefit store so I can try Powderflage, their new powder concealer.
It’s a light pink powder, so who knows how it’ll work on my skin tone, but, hey, ya never know.
How’ve you been this week? Anything exciting lined up for Wednesday? I’m a little wired right now, thanks to this second cup of coffee, ha!
