Clean and Clear Morning Energy Face Wash Review

Trust me on this, having younger sisters can be a gain, also a pain. You'll have someone to share secrets with, but they also end up empting your favorite perfumes and face washes! :| Well I don't mind my sister using my facewashes, but lady, let me know when you empty it >.< Nothing can be more annoying that finding a empty tube innocently looking at me after a hard day at college. *Yes, college is MORE stressful than school OKAY?*

When I couldn't stand this anymore, I bought her this basic face wash :D *Mom believes no chemical should touch the face. I really can't use just besan all day!*
I too use this face wash once in a while when I get bored of my regular face wash and need a milder option :) Sometimes you just don't go out the whole day but have to wash face before application of medication, so you need mildness. That is when I use it :) *Please excuse my lengthy explanations. I am really really sleepy! But I have a busy day tomorrow but can't let you guys get bored and miss me right? :) ;) The things I do for you guys ;)*

Lets move on to the review now, shall we? :)

Product: Clean and Clear face wash
Brand: Clean and Clear *Johnson and Johnson* *Duh!*
Variant: Morning Energy Brightening Berry Face wash
Cost: Rs.50/-
Quantity: 50 ml
Shelf life: 2 years

What does the company claim?
"Brighten your dull looking skin with this gentle face wash which has bursting beads that burst with energy and brightening berry extract. Gives you a burst of morning energy anytime of the day. The rich foam thoroughly removes oil and dirt. It has special ingredients that help prevent common skin problems, without over-drying. Leaves skin feeling clean, clear and beautiful everyday"

OKAY! All that 'burstt' made me think of fat bubbles and Diwali :P

The product comes in this super cute and chic packaging, which I totally dig. The flip cap is strong enough and doesn't spill. Drop it any number of times you want, Ms.Butterfingers. *Obviously, I am not responsible if it breaks :o :P*

The face wash is pale pink in color and smells delicious. You remember those scented erasers in weird shapes we would use as kids? *Whom am I kidding?! I still use them :** It sort of is like a stronger version of that scent. Refreshing, ofcourse. The 'bursting beads' are visible to the naked eye *Biology overload. Good old 12th standard ^_^ nostalgia!* but err, I have never actually 'felt' them. You know, I have sometimes squeezed out the facewash from the bottle with oodles of concentration and patience to get those damned beads out, but never :o Someday, I succeeded, but *pooof* It disappeared under slightest pressure.
True to character, BURSTS! :D

Anyho, it does its basic job - cleansing. It does remove the dirt off face, and smells really good. Its thinner than the regular Clean and Clear face wash, which I personally dislike.
Neither me nor my sis broke out with this facewash :)

My only complaint is the oily cast it leaves. Nothing dense, but well, I don't like the slippery feel right after washing my face, even if it goes away.

Other than that, its a decent face wash - economical, suits normal as well as oily, sensitive skin, smells yummy and lasts long.

My rating?

-1 for oily cast.

So girls, let me know if you have used it :) Loved? Loathed? Shoot a comment ;)
