Clean and Clear Acne-Free Routine Review

Clean and Clear Acne-Free
Routine h
Acne - Just typing out the word alone makes me shutter. I have suffered with acne since I was 12 and I can still remember the day I found my first pimple on my chin. I stood staring at the mirror trying to figure out what to do about the "situation". I immediately got my mom to take me to Shoppers Drug Mart where I bought the Clean and Clear acne clearing gel and the Clean and Clear concealer stick - both with salicylic acid. I was happy with this routine for a few years but my acne started to get worse. I soon realized that salicylic acid wasn't working for my skin anymore so I started to search for a formula with benzoyl peroxide and stuck with my new found routine for years. 

Now I am so happy to see that Clean and Clear have created a formula with 5% benzoyl peroxide (which is double the amount that is in my current routine).

The first product I tried from the routine was the Clean and Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser.
This cleanser features a pore-penetrating technology that deposits acne medicine to help fight breakouts on your face after you wash.
I used a dime sized amount in the palm of my hands, then dotted it all over my face and cleansed with my Clarisonic. It foamed nicely and my face felt cleansed and free of oil when I washed the cleanser away.

The next product in the routine is the Clean and Clear Persa-Gel 5 which releases the medicine into the pores where breakouts start and prevents them from coming back. Once my face was dry after using the cleanser, I used the persa-gel on any active breakouts. Overnight there was an instant reduction in the size of my breakouts and I found they didn't look red or irritated.

Lastly, I used the Clean and Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer all over my face. This moisturizer is formulated with water, not oil, and contains a blend of cucumber and green mango extracts. This moisturizer is lightweight and has a fresh cucumber scent. I usually find that using moisturizer in my morning routine can cause my skin to get oily during the day but this one did not cause that problem. My skin felt clean and refreshed when I used this moisturizer and it is quickly becoming a staple in my skincare routine.
