Beauty Roadtest: Clean & Clear Cleanser, An In-Shower Facial. Really.
March 17, 2010
When I read Clean & Clear’s Morning Burst In-Shower Facial’s promise of a steam-activated deep pore cleanse, I was intrigued, but skeptical. I’ve got plenty of exfoliators in my shower bin, but any cleanser with “facial” in the title is worth a try – especially at this price point ($6.09). The product definitely delivers: on a groggy Monday morning, I turned up the temperature in my shower (sorry, environment), followed the directions and ended up feeling more awake and almost spa-pampered. Applied generously and left on like a masque, the product claims to work in one minute, but I kept it on the entire shower routine. After letting the steam do its magic, I massaged my face in circles like an exfoliator – which is when the real benefits kicked in. My skin tingled and felt exceptionally smooth and refreshed, plus the citrus smell helped wake me up. It was totally an early morning treat – who wouldn’t want to face the world every day with facial-soft skin without the invasive poking and prodding?
