--What does the promo say?--
"Clean & Clear Advantage Oil Control Cream Wash is clinically proven to help clear excess oil for fewer spots and leave skin looking shine-free for longer. This dual-action formula combines oil-absorbing PowderParticles and our patented Advantage spot-fighting technology, to instantly remove up to 85% of excess oil* whilst helping to clear spots and blemishes. Oil-free. Won't clog pores. Won't overdry skin."
The silver and blue colour scheme is nicely unisex, and the plastic tube is practical too, with a flip-top lid that's sturdy, but opens easily when you need it to.
Rub between damp palms and massage onto the face, before wiping off with a wettened flannel.
The cream wash is white, with white particles visible. No visible residue is left on the face after washing.
--Texture and consistency--
Thick and slightly clay-like, but easy to wash off once you have finished.
The menthol comes through strongly, which is most refreshing, but is not overwhelming.
--Effects on the skin--
Skin definitely seemed calmed and clearer, with dry patches sloughed away thanks to the PowderParticles. Overall, skin was more balanced, with oily patches also reduced within a week's use.
--Value for money--
Results are definitely visible in the short term, and the overall usage experience was undoubtedly pleasant and effective - especially so for a product with such an affordable price tag. I was sent mine for free by Clean & Clear's PR, but would definitely pay up.
