Product Description

CLEAN & CLEAR® Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent contains a maximum- strength acne-fighting medication that treats and helps prevent pimples.

Recommended for:

Skin Need: Oil, Pimples

Directions:

  • The second most important step in cleaning your skin is to go after any dirt left hiding in your pores.
  • And here's how you do it:
  • Soak a cotton ball or pad with some astringent and wipe it over your face.
  • The T-Zone area is where oil usually hangs out, so give that a good once-over.
  • Because this product can dry out your skin take it slow and use just once a day.
  • If all goes well, gradually increase to 2-3 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.

Ingredients:

Salicylic Acid (2%)
Water Alcohol Isoceteth-20 Fragrance Dimethicone Propyl PG-Betaine Benzophenone-4 Red 4 Denatonium Benzoate

Warnings:

For external use only.
Flammable. Keep away from open fire or flame.
When using this product
- Skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur if you use another topical acne medication at the same time. If irritation occurs, only use one topical acne medication at a time.
- Rinse right away with water if it gets in eyes.

I really enjoy using this product and I highly recommend it, I use it every day of the week, I'm literally almost out!!! One reason I would recommend it, is because it will removes all the oil, dirt makeup etc. It is completely true to it's word. The only thing that you have to keep in mind, it will not work as well on someone with a highly oily face or a over dry face. My face is leaning towards the dry end, so every time I use this product I have to indeed moisturize my face always. This product works well for me because my face isn't so oily so people are always impressed and think, wow you have no acne but I really do just it works extremely well. I can tell that it works because if I stop using this product for maybe 2 days acne starts to appear slowly. I use this as a once a day wash and it works fine I would say this product would be perfect for you if you have a MILD oily face. Dry, means moisturizing and Oily mean not as affective I would say that because my face isn't necessarily oily, and it work great, so I'm not sure how well it would work if you were to have an oily face, maybe wash twice or three times a day. But other than those difficulties I would say this is a absolutely perfect product to use only just be cautious of the face type you have so you don't waste your money!  Clean & Clear® Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent

I'm 29 and I still suffer from Acne. I started getting acne in 6th grade, and went from using top of the line products for my face to even prescription from the dermatologist, and since than my acne has had it's good and bad day's. However I always have found that [product:clean-&-clear-essentials-deep-cleaning-astringent] and even the cheapest version Walgreens Refresh works amazing on my skin. I get a couple cotton balls loosened up and I wash the dirt away. Infact I think my favorite part if seeing the dirt come off still after I washed my face so I know these products are deep cleaning as they say. I posted a generic bottle but the clean and clear astringent is amazing it really works it will dry out the infected area anywhere from 2 hours after or longer and if you follow directions you'll see your pimple and or zit start to become less noticable. I never cared for the smell it's like a nail salon so.if you're sensitive I'd recommend putting it on in a different room and avoid eye mouth and nostril holes if possible. Product dries up quick and has cleared so many blemishes I use it weekly! Definitely would recommend to those who want a fresh feel without all the dry skin that it can leave as long as you apply it gently and go to bed wake and see it's half of.what it was you feel better about you! I just wanted to share what I have here today which is the deep cleaning version of clean and clear but basically the same ingredients.
Love it!

his has worked great as a toner for me. I use clean and clear advantage face wash, and then this immediately after. It’s a second step to get a deep clean, and I know it’s working because the cotton ball with the astringent on it still comes back dirty. The tingle really makes me feel love like it’s getting deep and getting rid of all the junk that makes me break out. Within ONE WEEK my skin has cleared up so well that even my boyfriend commented how clear and calm it looked. I have tried other more expensive make up counter brands, and this works the best for me. I️ have sensitive but oily skin, and with the use of a moisturizer, it’s the perfect match for me

I typically only use this when I start to break out but when I was younger my mother used to make me put it on everyday. Like all products your not gonna get immediate results. If you put the effort in everyday by putting the astringent on the breakout area's they'll be sure to go away eventually. You can't only use the astringent you have to wash your face first for a better results also. I would recommend using other products with it like moisturizer and face wash. I tend to use the  Clean & Clear® Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub . When you combine the 2 after you wash your face and apply the astringent your face feels so fresh its amazing. Then I'll top it off with some  POND's Facial Moisturizers Crema S

This is the only astringent I use! I have super oily and sensitive skin. It really helps my skin feel super clean and has never caused a breakout on me. I use it in the morning before I put on my moisturizer and the evening after I wash my face. It even will take off whatever leftover makeup my face wash might have missed. I just put a little on a cotton pad and swipe over my whole face, watching my eye area of course! This is a most definitely a staple in my skincare routine!

i will say that this product could be okay for people that don’t have sensitive skin to fragrance .. before i started using this product i had oily skin when i started using it my oily skin went away in about 2 weeks , but it broke my face out worse & i didn’t know that until a month later & i stopped using .. like i said before it’s a good product for people that does not have sensitive skin to fragrance & this product does have added fragrance.

So This Stuff Is Okay , I have really sensitive skin so it doesn’t do much for me but having a toner in your daily/nightly skin routine is always great. I got this as a 3 step skincare pack which comes with the foaming cleanser , which works great for helping remove all of your makeup and any dirt and oil . It also came with the toner which leaves my skin feeling tingly lol but more refreshed feeling. The moisturizer is also great I use it as my everyday moisturizer and before I apply primer and foundation. I’d Recommend this to any teen! Clean & Clear® Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent

This cleanser has been the best thing for my acne. I have always had very bad acne, and it would be all over my face and be very painful. Once I started using this, at first it was working slower because of the amount of acne I had, but as time went on, my acne cleared up relatively fast. I still get acne, but I put it on three times a day and it helps me more than any other acne treatment I’ve tried. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is struggling with acne, I am definitely going to keep buying it.

Overall I'm super pleased with this product. The oil isn't greasy whatsoever. It says 2-3 drops will do the job, but I use way more (maybe 10?). Even though I've used quite a bit in just 6 days the bottle looks nearly untouched. It leaves a yellow/orange look to your face, so I usually put it on before bed. A little bit to dry spots during the daytime isn't too obvious, but that'll probably depend on your skin tone. Every morning I wake up and my skin feels INCREDIBLY soft and smoothed. I've struggled with intense acne for a good year or so now. I've easily invested a good couple hundred of dollars from high end to questionable companies. I love love love that this is animal friendly and so natural. I highly recommend this product and will continue to explore/ test this company's line of cosmetics. The one thing that aggravated me a bit was the fact I payed for one day shipping but it came in two days. Otherwise if you're questioning on wether or not to invest in this don't think about it too much. It's quality for it's price? AMAZING

As an astringent this worked great. It leaves my face feeling super clean. It dries my face out like other astringents but when I bought this one it came in a pack that had the moisturizer so it kinda made up for it. This one burns a little when you put it on and I get a little red and puffy so that's not okay but it goes away in just a few minutes. I have sensitive skin so maybe this doesn't happen to everyone, this has happened to me with every astringent I've tried though so maybe I'm the problem
