Skincare Review: Clearasil PefectaWash

A little after the holidays I was sent a mysterious box in the mail and thought maybe it was a late gift from someone, so I quickly broke into the box to reveal... The Clearasil PefectaWash? I was stunned to say the least! I found a letter beneath the package explaining to me that I had been chosen to receive their Starter Kit for my own personal use and review from their Facebook contest. I was shocked! I have literally never won anything in my life and had completely forgotten that I entered! After all of the initial shock, it was time to get down to business: testing time!

Clearasil PerfectaWash Starter Kit

I quickly got to work opening up the package and sliding out the two refills, one in Superfruit Splash and the other in Soothing Plant Extracts, that each have 100 perfect doses in them adding up to a three month supply (when used two times a day)! But the creme de la creme came next and when I saw the dispenser I almost died! It looks and feels like something you would see in a swanky hotel or restaurant to dispense soap, but in this case the soap is a powerful acne-fighting cleanser.

Once I loaded the dispenser with the Soothing Plant Extracts Cleanser and flipped the switch in the back I was ready to go! I put my hand under to activate the dispenser and was immediately concerned at the amount that came out. The dispenser gave me about a nickel to a quarter sized amount of product and all I kept thinking was, "This is it?" and debated whether I should activate the dispenser again. I decided to just use what I already had in my hand and see if it really was the perfect dose.

As it turns out: it is! It provides just enough product for your entire face without having to deal with the messy pumps and bottles that always dispense too much product. Once it is massaged onto the face it produces little to no foam, so foam lovers may need some time to adjust themselves to this formula. After rinsing my skin feels fresh and clean, but also a little bit dry which I more so blame on the weather because my skin is overall a bit dryer this time of year. So I make sure to use a moisturizer after cleansing.

Besides just feeling refreshed, my combination, acne-prone skin sees fairly good results in the acne department. I see many of my blemishes reduce in size and redness overnight, but nothing super drastic. Overall this cleanser on its own isn't enough to keep me clear and I think a Clearasil spot-treatment or other acne-fighter from their line in addition to this will give better results. As for now though, I think I found the perfect combination for my skin using my old cleanser once a week and this the rest of the days and using an exfoliator in addition to this cleanser once a week, so a skincare routine may be in the works soon because it even confused me just writing it!

I really like this cleanser and I appreciate that Clearasil is taking a new path in skincare and created a dispenser that always dispenses the perfect dose, but when it comes down to it this just isn't enough for my skin and I need a little extra push from some other products get my skin to where I would like it to be.

The Stats:
 - Starter Kit Retails $20.00
 - Comes with both dispenser and two refills (plus pre-installed batteries!)
 - Refills are available in Soothing Plant Extracts and Superfruit Splash
 - Each refill has 100 perfect doses
 - The cleansers may be a bit drying this time of year
 - Easy To Use!
 - Sanitary Dispenser
 - Looks Great in Any Bathroom

Well, well, well, look at this! I saw this in stores and was curious about it.
I think I would end up filling the bottles with my own cleanser as Clearasil has not been good to me.
Love this idea!
