Bye-Bye Blemishes

When I think of pesky pimples I immediately think of those terrible teen years where spots decided to set up camp on my face and really didn't want to leave! Back then my trusted brand was Clearasil and it makes me feel quite nostalgic as it was one of the very first cleansers I had ever used. It was definitley the spark that led me onto my passion and obsession with skincare!

Fast forward to a lot less spotty and hopefully slightly more wiser me, I have found myself loving a Clearasil cleanser again. I recently tried out the Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Daily Scrub and said bye-bye to blemishes. Although I don't get pimples as often as I did in my teens I still want to keep my skin fresh, clean, clear and happy!

The cleanser can double as a wash and a light exfoliator which to me is like a 2 for 1 sale and who doesn't like 2 things for the price of one?! Just like any other wash you can lightly massage it into the face for a minute or two and then wash off with warm water and a muslin cloth.... or if your skin is needing a nice bit of exfoliation you can use the beads to gently exfoliate the skin.

What I look for in my cleansers is that it *must* deeply clean my skin but not be any of the following; stripping, drying or harsh on my 20-something skin! This cleanser ticks all my boxes and my skin is seriously happy and it actually feels hydrated after use. It's a dreamy creamy cleanser with tiny exfoliating beads and has a somewhat fruity scent. It also has Avocado, Pomegranate and Vitamin E to keep the skin nourished, which makes this formula friendly to all skin types!

For extra blemish fighting power I have also been reaching for my trusty spot treatment of the moment *drumroll please*.... the Clearasil Rapid Action Pimple Cream. It reduces redness and spots seem to go away a lot quicker too! It's always important to use protection from the sun but especially if your are treating acne because the sun can darken pigmentation left behind by pimples.... so don't forget that sunblock!

This duo has made sure I have not gained any new facial friends, it also has worked to make my pores more refined and has definitely made the overall look to my skin much clearer. So the new Vitamins & Extracts Daily scrub gets the two big thumbs up from me and I'm very intrigued to try the rest of the range. I would highly recommend it if you are in the shop for a good drugstore cleanser or skincare routine!

I would love to know what your favourite drugstore cleanser is?
