Your Fastest Facial Ever: Clean & Clear's In-Shower Facial

I love it when products work well and work fast. Well, get ready, because not only is this a great alpha-hydroxy exfoliating scrub, but it works in about 90 seconds! (Note, Clean and Clear says a minute, I'm adding application and rinsing off time!)

I loved using this product. It is a thick, light grey creme with a bit of grit in it. It is designed to work best in the shower, with the theory that the heat and steam allow the main active ingredient, Glycolic Acid (bolded in the ingredient list, see the hydroxy acids post for more information) to sink further into the skin. A minute is really all that you need, any longer and your skin will start to tingle, reminding you to rinse. The product is meant to be scrubbed (helping to exfoliate the skin) and then rinsed away!

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polyethylene, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Glycerin, Glycolic Acid, Polysorbate 60, Steareth-21, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Montmorillonite, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance, Betaine, Methylparaben, Sodium PCA, Menthol, Sorbitol, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit/Leaf Extract, Serine, Saccharum Officinanum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Glycine, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glutamic Acid, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Alanine, Arginine, Lysine, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Threonine, Proline, Iodopropyryl Butylcarbamate, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone. May also contain: Sodium Hydroxide.

This product also contains quite a few moisturizing ingredients to help create a glowy look (italicized in the ingredients above).

Overall, I thought that this worked extremely well. It definitely smoothed my skin, creating a fresh and glowing look. It was fast and efficient, which I loved. It is even gentle enough to use a few times a week.

I think that this would be a great option for young teens, who tend to think that "more is better" especially when it comes to skin care. I know I used to try and scrub the pimples off of my face, I can't imagine what would have happened if I had a product like Neutrogena's Wave to go after my face with! The In-Shower Facial is just the right amount of exfoliation with each use, so it would be a bit hard for a teen to go too overboard.

One quick word of caution- as with any hydroxy acid product, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun. So, be sure to use a sunscreen when using this product!

  1. I love Clean & Clear's new skincare line. I'm using their daytime moisturizer and I really like it. I haven't tried this product yet, but I'll likely try it when my current cleanser runs out. Thanks for the review!

  2. This product sounds fantastic! Thanks for the great review.

  3. This sounds great. I'll try it.

  4. I just picked up up a bottle of this at Target toda and am excited for my next shower to try:)

    If you are able to in the future - can you do a review of the new daytime moisturizer and the 'scrub' as well?

    Thanks, as always!

  5. I love this, but have a question no one sems to have addresses (including the label). Should this be applied to wet or dry skin?

  6. I'm actually sort of obsessed with this product. I used it for a while, sort of forgot about it, and then used it this morning (with the Day moisturizer). I looooooooove it! It made my skin super smooth, helped remove redness, and faded my blackheads... IN ONE USE! I've tried everything for my blackheads, from pore strips to blackhead scrubs, and this is the only thing that really gets down into my pores!

  7. this is like, the only review i enjoy reading and very informative. next time i go to target i'll grab the in-shower facial and the moisturizers!
