Our Thoughts

Ever wondered how to treat your greasy face so that you don’t have pimples showing up when it’s not a good time?    Recently, I was informed that I had been selected to participate in a blog tour on the new Clearasil Perfecta Wash.   I received a Clearasil Perfecta Wash with two refills in Soothing Plant Extracts and Superfruit Splash so we can experience the system first-hand.   When I say WE I am talking about my son, who is a pre-teen of almost 11 years old, my husband and myself.    We are three people to try Cleaningout this new product.  

While being in a Wal-Mart in NY State a couple of weeks ago, I have seen the Clearasil Perfecta Wash Face Wash System on the shelves.   However, so far I have not seen the product in Wal-Mart or at the pharmacy in Canada.    Even if I go to the Canadian website, I can’t seem to find any information about it.   The US site does contain information on the Perfecta Wash.

Essentially, the Perfecta Wash will provide the perfect dose of the right face wash.   This perfect dose will help to get a clearer skin without overdrying. Washing the face on a daily basis also helps to keep the skin on looking its best.     The fun dispenser makes face-washing convenient and easy and ensures that you get the perfect dose.  

There are two Ultra Rapid Action formulas available for use in the dispensertwo-formulas: Superfruit Splash and Soothing Plant Extracts.   Both are formulated with maximum strength acne medication and are dermatologist tested.  For a luscious scent and energizing feel, the Superfruit Splash formula features raspberry and cranberry extracts. The Soothing Plant formula includes ingredients that are known to calm and help reduce redness. The refills are also available for purchase individually.   Each refills will provide approximately 100 doses.

We received the Clearasil Perfecta Wash about a week and a half ago and already we see the benefits of this system.    One day as I felt my skin to be quite greasy in the afternoon, I decided to wash it with the Clearasil Perfecta Wash and I was impressed with how rapidly I sensed the difference in my skin.   I personally like the fact that the dispenser gives you the perfect dose.    Honestly I find it reduce the quantity that could get lost if you put too much in your hands – especially with children if you see what I mean.

My son doesn’t seem to see a difference but I know that his skin looks fresher than usual as he is using it every morning.    My husband has told me that he liked the product but would love to know how much the refill would cost before determining if it would be a product worth buying or not.     It is suggested to use it twice a day but at this point in time, every users in this house are using it at least once a day (and sometimes the adults would skip some days…).  

Apparently this product cost about 1/3 of the price of a popular acne product mentioned on the box.   Knowing how much the other product cost, I am not surprised about this.  However, since I have never experience the other product before, I can’t compare both products on this blog post.  

The only disappointment I would have is that you can’t put the dispenser in the shower and get the bottom wet as the batteries are located there.   It is clearly indicated at the bottom of the dispenser not to leave it in water.    So our dispenser is currently on the floor next to the bathtub since we would use it while taking a shower.   I would also suggest that you switch the dispenser off after every time you use it as it would help to avoid have some unscheduled delivery of the soap if you pass under the spout by accident (yes we experienced this little accident…).

If you are a mom with a pre-teen/teen in your household, you can have the chance to test the new Clearasil Perfecta Wash too!    All you have to do is signup at the Mom Central Canada website as they are looking for Canadian moms to participate in a product testing opportunity for Clearasil Perfecta Wash who have pre-teen/teen-aged children who suffer from acne, or moms (who suffer with blemishes) who would be willing to try it out themselves.   If you are curious about this new product, I would strongly suggest that you apply for a chance to try it out for free.   

Our family – two adults and one pre-teen tested the product -  is very satisfied with the results of Clearasil Perfecta Wash.    However, we wonder how much the refills will be sold.    Knowing this bit of information could be useful to determine if it is worth it or not.   The starter kit was sold for about 14$ US when I was at a Wal-Mart a couple of weeks ago.     I suspect that the product will be available everywhere in Canada in the weeks to come.

Note that the dispenser come with 3 x AA batteries which will eventually need replacement.
