Review | Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Remember that amazing 3-in-1 Vichy cleanser that helped me get my breakouts under control? Well, a few weeks ago I cut it open, scraped out the very last bit of product, and threw away its mangled remains. Completely empty. So it was time for a replacement, and since it’s kind of my duty as a beauty blogger to try something new every time I went with the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub, or ‘Reinigendes Peeling’ in German and ‘Gommage Nettoyant Rafraîchissant’ in French. Just like my beloved Vichy cleanser the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub does more than just cleanse the skin and it also acts as an exfoliant. Now let’s find out if it has managed to win me over and has made me forget my former love!

Review (Clearasil Daily Refreshing Superfruit Scrub) (1)

The Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub is a gentle exfoliating cleanser that claims to help keep acne-prone skin clear. It contains a mix of raspberry and cranberry extract – both powerful antioxidants –, skin-loving vitamin B, and salicylic acid that has a proven efficiency against acne and impurities. I don’t understand why this last ingredient isn’t clearly mentioned on the tube – I had to search for it in the ingredient list – because salicylic acid is one of the most powerful acne-fighting agents out there. Now I’m no marketing expert, but wouldn’t you want to advertise that on the packaging?

The Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub comes in a cute fresh pink squeeze tube and the color of the packaging really reflects the superfood theme of the product. Seeing all that pretty pink immediately makes me feel all excited to start using the cleanser.

And not only the packaging is pink. The Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub itself is also pale pink. It has a very creamy texture and despite the fact that it’s a scrub cleanser it actually feels very soft on the skin. The pink scrub particles are really tiny and there aren’t that many of them, so the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub is an absolute pleasure to use. First I wet my face, and then I put a royal amount of the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub on my skin and massage it around. It’s just such a pleasant experience. The product feels deliciously creamy, but at the same time it’s also gritty enough to gently scrub my face. And the smell, oh mah lordy! The Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub smells exactly like the ingredients that are in it, so like raspberry and cranberry. It’s a lovely fruity sweet smell, and the smell alone makes me look forward to using the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub every day.

And the results? Well, I get the impression that the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub cleanses my skin just fine. After cleansing my skin feels soft and clean, and there’s no irritation or redness whatsoever. So it’s definitely gentle on the skin. And so far it also manages to keep my acne under control. I’ve been using the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub for a little over a month now – I took it to Japan with me – and though I haven’t forgotten about my beloved Vichy cleanser yet the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub is definitely a worthy successor.

You can buy the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub at the drugstore or supermarket for 11.90 CHF.

Could the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Scrub be something for you? What cleanser do you currently use?

  6. Every time I use a scrub, I get the most horrible breakout ever. I tried the gentle exfoliator and still the same. I try to stay away as far as possible from scrubs.

  13. Another great review, Melissa. I must admit I’ve been neglecting exfoliating lately, but when I do remember, I use the Murad one which I really like. I wouldn’t mind trying the Clearasil one when I finish it.
    Have a great Easter:)

  14. Altijd spannend als je zo’n nieuwe product uit probeert, zeker als je een moeilijke huid hebt! Hij klinkt ieder geval goed, ik heb zelf nog geen goede scrub gevonden, want ik heb een redelijk gevoelige huid en ik vind het altijd zo moeilijk kiezen.. gelukkig heb ik nu u daarvoor ;)

  18. I bought a great facial cleanser today … I am looking forward to using it… I adore cleansers that clean but also leave the skin so soft. I will have to try this Clearasil item since I do love the brand so much … Have a lovely Easter ♥

  19. Klinkt goed, ik ben altijd bang dat mijn huid er droog of rood van word:( Ik heb je trouwens genomineerd voor een very inspiring blogger award!

  20. This one sounds so nice! Do you think it would be gentle enough for my daughter? She seems to be more on the sensitive side and I think she would benefit from a gentle scrub a few times a week. :)
    Icaria recently posted…The Sunday Post, Vol. 16…

    • My skin isn’t extremely sensitive, but I do suffer from redness a bit, especially after using scrubs. So if your daughter’s skin isn’t overly sensitive, this would probably work.

  21. Lovely post. the product sounds great!

  25. Heb vroeger wel eens een gel cleanser van Clerasil gebruitk, maar die was te hard voor mijn huid. Clerasil vind ik over het algemeen redelijk uitdrogend werken op mijn huid… Misschien heb jij daar minder last van? Maar hij ziet er wel heel goed uit!
