Today’s Back to School budget pick is the new Clean & Clear Morning Burst Surge Energizing Power Cleanser. Those of you who can’t dish out $200 for a Clarisonic might want to gather around for this pick!
A micro-vibrations and energizing cleansing pads wake you up and leave your skin feeling refreshed within 60 seconds!
If you head to your local drugstore you probably know that power cleansers are pretty much a dime a dozen. Everyone and their mother has one of this little guys on the market so you pretty much have a damn large selection of cleansing tools to choose from that will set you back anywhere from $10 to around $30 bucks. The units are geared towards both younger and older skin.
Moral of the story is you MIGHT want a Clarisonic Cleansing Brush but can’t really afford the $200. That’s where these little units come into place….they aren’t a Clarisonic but some of them aren’t half bad either.
The new Clean & Clear Morning Burst Surge Energizing Powder Cleanser captured my interest for a number of reasons, one of which was the Vitamin C infused pads. Vitamin C is always a plus for skin and keeps it bright and healthy looking. Another reason was because I really enjoy the Clean & Clear Morning Burst In Shower Facial Cleanser. The pads used with this unit contain the same invigorating citrus scent as the In Shower Facial which is rather appealing to my nose.
This is sold for $14.99 and contains the cleansing tool plus 14 pads. It has two speeds the higher of which seems to work best in my opinion to get fresher, cleaner skin. I use it in the morning on a makeup free face. It removes oil and dirt and gives face a more cleaner appearance without overly drying skin out.
It’s pretty simple to use in you’re simply attaching a pad to the unit. It works much like a Velcro strip as the pad attaches easily to the head of the power cleanser in a simple step.
According to Clean & Clean it’s 10 times more effective than ordinary cleansing at removing dirt and oil and I have to agree as the highest speed pulsates quite well and breaks up any gook you might have hanging out on your face so you’ll end up with smoother, cleaner skin with a single use.
Mind you it’s not a miracle worker by any means nor is a Clarisonic but it will do the job at getting skin smoother, with less oily build up, and cleaner overall.
Like most of the units I tried this somehow has pads that fail to lather up well. I don’t get a TON of foam from the pads and I find it irritating as I’d like some foam.
Although Clean & Clear says it’s perfectly find to use in the shower, I’m a little skeptical. The unit doesn’t have much in the ways of a battery protection so fully submerging it does seem a tad dangerous but hey you can try, never know until you try plus it’s best suited to the shower since I find it makes a bit of a mess when standing at the sink as water seems to fly all over the place.
I wouldn’t use this to remove makeup and I happen to feel the same way about my Clarisonic. I’d rather remove my makeup first and follow up with this to achieve a deeper clean.
- Anyone looking for an affordable unit to give skin a deeper clean!
- Anyone with oily skin may find this mattifies skin a good deal.
- Anyone interested in a Clarisonic who simply can’t afford one (this isn’t a Clarisonic but it performs a similar function as one!).
- Anyone who thinks this will change their skincare life (deeper clean yes, clearer skin, I doubt that!)!
- Those sensitive to scents or fragrances in their skincare!
This isn’t going to change your skincare life but it may make things easier. It does give a good, solid deep clean without overly drying out skin. It doesn’t change skincare lives but it works well enough to warrant a purchase particularly for those who feel like their skin is never really clean enough!
The unit is $14.99 and comes with 14 refillable pads plus a battery. You can get an extra 28 pads free if you purchase at CVS or you can take advantage of a BOGO offer at Walgreens which is Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off at the moment.
A perfect little cleansing find for back to schooler’s in need of a deeper clean who can’t dish out a large chunk of cash to get that fresh faced feeling.
