Review | Clearasil Superfruits Refreshing Wash and Scrub

I was intrigued when I came across the following fruity beauties from Clearasil while perusing the shelves in Superdrug, initially because they're pink, and hello, who doesn't love a pink bottle?! While I admittedly usually associate Clearasil with teenage pimples and potent spot fighting products, the new Superfruits Refreshing Scrub is creamy and gentle, and the matching Refreshing Wash is perfect for an early morning refreshing boost, especially in this sticky, sweaty weather. Both products smell pleasantly sweet and fruity rather than medicinal or chemical, and each comes in at under £5 (I can't find the exact price as they don't seem to be listed on the Superdrug website, boo). 

I've been using the Refreshing Wash in the mornings to cleanse away night time grime without stripping my sensitive skin of moisture. It smells great, lathers up nicely and leaves my skin looking and feeling matt and ready for make-up. Both the wash and scrub contain Vitamin B3, which works to fight inflammation, and Salicylic Acid, which frees trapped grime through exfoliation, meaning they're a good bet for spot prone skin. Having been through a particularly rough patch spot-wise over the past few weeks my skin is now starting to calm down, thankfully. 

Clearasil Superfruits Refreshing Scrub 

The Refreshing Scrub has a lovely consistency; creamy with super small scrub particles, it doesn't pull on the skin or leave my face feeling like it's been sandpapered! I'm left feeling as if I've had a thorough but gentle deep clean. I like to alternate hot cloth cleansing with using a  scrub throughout the week in order to keep my pores feeling clear and unclogged. As soon as I stop exfoliating I notice a difference (the emergence of more blackheads/skin dullness) so a good face scrub is an essential in my skin care kit, and this Clearasil gem is doing a great job so far.

While products alone probably won't solve all my spotty skin woes, it feels good to use products that deliver a dose of spot fighting ingredients while providing a gentle yet thorough cleanse. I'll be continuing to use these throughout the summer months, as they're excellent at removing melted make-up and general sticky summer dirt and grime... lovely! For under a fiver each, these are well worth having in my summer skin care kit.
