Hey my beauties!
So last week, the lovely girls, Em and Zee, from The Pakistan Girls Guide on Instagram tagged me in their #thecareforyourskintag, which is part of a collaboration they did with Maryam A Cheema (Instagram username: a.desi.onthe.go) to bring for you an eclectic mix of products along with their in-depth reviews. Make sure to check their product reviews out and let them know I sent you their way!
Firstly, I’d like to thank Em and Zee for thinking about me. I’m honoured and excited! Now this is what I bring for you as part of #thecareforyourskintag.
The Clean and Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser with Caffeine, Lemon and Papaya (OH MY GOSH that’s a mouthful!) is my holy grail cleanser of all time. It’s seriously my ride or die product. No morning goes by without my skin getting a taste of this first thing after my eyes see the sun! It cleanses, brightens, and refreshes all in one go! It’s such a treat, I promise you.
This oil free cleanser has bursting beads that slightly exfoliate my skin and melt away as I rub it in and work up the lather. The menthol in it drives away all traces of sleep and puffiness from my eyes, literally. They weren’t kidding about the ‘wakes you up’ part. It leaves the skin bright, fresh and lovely. I have been using this stuff for years now and my skin has never been better. I never had problematic skin (Alhumdulillah) but the occasional spot here and there was no surprise. With regular use of this, I found that my skin is much happier and mostly clear. Neither the scent nor the menthol ever broke out my sensitive skin.
In spite of all the above, it’s not perfect. It dries out the skin and is definitely not hydrating whatsoever. But, to be fair, Clean and Clear never claimed for it to be. It’s more targeted on combination to oily skin.
The website reads,
“This invigorating fruity facial wash helps you to look and feel brighter and more energised with lemon and papaya extracts. Best face wash for those who want a bright, beautiful complexion every day. This fun, fragrant facial wash is formulated with lemon, papaya extracts, and exfoliating beads to brighten the skin and awaken the senses.”
For my combination skin, the dehydration is not too horrible. Nothing a little toner and moisturiser can’t fix!
All in all, I absolutely CANNOT live without this cleanser! I have repurchased it multiple times, however, not as much because the large bottle lasts me a good 10 months, if not a full year.
Such a joy to use. Highly recommend!
