Break Out the @Clearasil to Bring On Clear Skin #ClearasilMom #sponsored #MC


I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Clearasil. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


As a teenage girl, I experienced my fair share of breakouts. I never properly removed my make-up, sweated a lot during dance class and probably touched my face with my germy hands throughout the day. These things all contributed to the nasty pimples and clogged pores my face had to endure during the most fragile moments of adolescence. Thank goodness I had products from the Clearasil brand to help me give my face a fresh and clear start each time.

Fast forward to about twenty years later. I still have episodes where acne decides to make an appearance at the most critical times. Most of the time, I have breakouts when it's that "time of the month", or, I am extremely stressed. Imagine the horror of getting all fancied up for a night out with the girls, only to discover there is a huge zit on your nose. As if!

But it appears that I am not the only person in the house who is dealing with the issues of breakouts and acne. My (soon-to-be) teenager has now stepped into the same world I was in back in the day. Who would have ever thought that we would be able to bond over pimples? But hey, I'll take it!

We were sent two Clearasil products to test out – Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Daily Gel Wash and Clearasil® Daily Clear® Hydra-Blast Oil Free Daily Face Wash.


Ultra Rapid Action Gel Wash:
• Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Gel Wash is dermatologist tested and gives you visibly clearer skin in as little as 12 hours. It is scientifically formulated with maximum strength acne medication and starts working quickly to open blocked pores and help you get healthy looking skin. So you get visibly clearer skin fast.

Hydra- Blast Oil-Free Face Wash:
• Clearasil® Daily Clear® Oil Free Daily Face Wash is dermatologist tested and helps reduce breakouts by up to 85% in just 4 weeks. The face wash is scientifically formulated with a moisturizing complex to leave your skin feeling soft and cared for. So you get clearer skin every day.

I knew that my son was growing up when he seemed excited to test out these products. It showed me that he cared about his appearance and hygiene as a young man. (I'm guessing he didn't want the girls at school to see him in this "condition" either.) He expressed concern to me about the constant breakouts on his face and I told him I had just the product for him. We wasted no time giving it a go.

He opted to try the Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Gel Wash first. He needed to see faster results and this particular product can deliver those in just 12 hours, possibly as quickly as 4 hours. So, he lathered up just before bedtime. It was just what he needed to settle into bed for the night, feeling refreshed while doing so.


He left the bottle right on the sink so that it was a reminder for him each time he looked in the mirror and saw a bump forming. The other product, Clearasil® Daily Clear® Oil Free Daily Face Wash, was left in the shower for more frequent usage. This also made it easier to remember each time he took a shower. Routines are vital in the morning when preparing for school.

Just before he went to bed, this is what his face looked like:


The very next morning, you could see a difference already. It was approximately 10 hours. His face looked like this:


It was great to see my son excited about the results of using this product. He also trusted my advice on using the Clearasil to help rid his face of acne. Even though the bump was not completely gone, it started to fade away and was not as noticeable as before. That was a success to us.

We did notice that the Clearasil® Daily Clear® Oil Free Daily Face Wash will dry your face out if it is used frequently. I would suggest using this every other day to avoid dryness. It left my son's face looking a bit "ashy". This was our only complaint about the product.


The great thing about both of these products is the smell. Normally, facial cleaners and washed have a medicated scent or smell to them and can leave you feeling like you just stepped out of a doctor's office. I was pleasantly surprised to get a whiff of both and loved that it wasn't hard on the nose. This is a huge plus.

My son has been incorporating the Clearasil Ultra® Rapid Action Gel Wash and the Clearasil® Daily Clear® Oil Free Daily Face Wash into his daily routine for a couple of weeks now. He is showing me that he is responsible for sticking with this. He also knows the importance of taking care of his skin and the benefits of being consistent with his regiment.


Clearasil has been a big part of my life and now, I am passing the torch over to my teenage son (although, I use the products, too). I hope that clear skin that is acne-free will give him the confidence he needs to grow into a great young man.
