I was happy that my daughter was interested in cleansing her face and these products are definitely suitable for her 15 year old skin! Clearasil is such a trusted skin care brand, perfect for the changing needs of teenage skin.
So after a quick bit of negotiation, because I'm a mum after all, and I needed something to
So please excuse the strawberries in the photos below. I am aware that these Clearsil products contain raspberry and cranberry extracts and not strawberry extracts, but strawberries were the closest superfruit I could find in our fridge that day!

Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Wash comes in a clear 150ml pump action bottle. It has a sweet, berry scent that my daughter loves!
As mentioned above it contains raspberry and cranberry extracts and is designed to be gentle enough to be used on your skin daily, keeping it hydrated and looking radiant. It also contains one percent salicylic acid.
One pump of this wash is enough to use on your face. I found it lathered up well with water. It felt gentle on my skin, cleaning it thoroughly but not stripping it of its natural oils.
My daughter has been using this facial cleanser daily for over a fortnight now and loves it. She says her skin is clearer now than it used to be. Her two brothers have started asking questions about this wash also and I suspect I will be buying it on a regular basis for all three of them to use. I'm happy about this as I want them all to have good skin care regimes right from the start.
Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Scrub ($10.99)
|Clearasil Superfruits Refreshing Scrub|
Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Scrub comes in a 150ml flip top tube. Like the wash it has a fresh, sweet, berry scent that my daughter totally loves!
Once again it contains raspberry & cranberry extracts, known for their antioxidant properties, and also Vitamin B3 to protect the skin's barrier. It also contains one percent salicylic acid to fight existing blemishes and prevent future breakouts.
This superfruits cleansing scrub is pale pink in colour and thick in consistency. It is thus easy to dispense into your hands and massage onto your face. Perfect for first time skincare scrub users such as my daughter.
The exfoliating granules are a darker pink colour and quite small, resulting in a gentle exfoliation of the skin and unblocking of pores for a smoother complexion.
After use my skin felt super clean but not stripped of its natural oils at all.
Although the tube recommends using this scrub everyday, both in the morning and evening, to keep your skin clear I've encouraged my daughter to start off using this scrub twice a week initially. We have built it into her cleansing routine in the shower each time after she washes her hair twice a week. For now this routine and frequency combined with the daily use of the Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Wash seems to be working well for her teenage skin.
If my daughter's skin condition changes I will consult the Clearasil skin care guide on their website to determine what the best Clearasil washes, scrubs and other products are for her skin.
At what age have you or would you introduce your daughter to a skin care regime? What skin care products would you recommend to a teenager?
