Clearasil PerfectaWash Acne Face Wash review #teens

Introducing Clearasil PerfectaWash

Having a teenager and a tween in the home means that we go through a lot of different products to try and conquer acne, and keep faces clean and clear. Some have worked well but been too expensive, while others have done nothing but dry out a face or irritate the skin. We recently had a chance to try the new Clearasil PerfectaWash cleaner. I have been searching for a facial cleansing product for my tween daughter, Pie, to use for her skin. She is approaching the age where her hormones are starting to freak out and I know she is often sensitive about the break outs that she gets. 

The Clearasil PerfectaWash we received comes as a 3 month supply. It includes an automatic face wash dispenser and two refill bottles {one Superfruit Splash and one Soothing Plant Extracts}. Each 5 oz refill is designed as an Ultra Rapid Action Face Wash and has 2% Salicylic Acid as a maximum strength acne fighting ingredient.

Even though the wash is strong enough to visibly clear skin in as little as 12 hours, it is still gentle on your face. The automatic dispenser is designed to deliver the Perfect Dose of face wash — up to 100 doses per 50z refill! 

Using just the right amount will keep you fro drying out your skin and so far it has seemed to work well for Pie. She uses the  Introducing Clearasil PerfectaWash twice daily, once in the morning and once right before bed. We have noticed an improvement in the amount of breakouts she has, as well as the moisture level of her skin. She hasn’t had any sensitivities while using the product either.

So what do we think? I love that I have finally found something that my daughter will use daily. We’ve been struggling with finding a product that she could feel confident about using and Clearasil PerfectaWash is it. She can use it herself since she knows she is getting the perfect amount every time.

One thing I will say is that if you are sharing a bathroom, you should hide or put away the dispenser when you aren’t using it. We had an issue where we didn’t know why it was being used up so fast. As it turns out my husband, my son and even a few house guests thought that we had got a fancy new hand soap dispenser for the bathroom! They were using up her face wash on their hands! We found out when my son commented on how nice the new hand soap smelled. Just a FYI!

The dispenser does have an on/off switch which is great to prevent accidental dispensing! As you can see by the photo, Pie has been using her wash for a couple of weeks now and still has a ton left. She hasn’t even touched the second refill yet. I love how affordable Clearasil PerfectaWash has turned out to be! Oh, and Pie loves Clearasil PerfectaWash too since her face has cleared up quite a bit! Plus it smells really really good — just ask my son!

    Oh my gosh, how funny. It really does look like a soap dispenser, but I love the ease of use! I’ll have to keep this in mind when and if we ever need a product!

    The most attractive feature about Clearasil’s Perfectawash is the fact that it is completely hands free! I hate it when I have to mess with caps and squeeze to get what I need out of containers. It can be especially hard for someone who wear contacts, for I take them out before I wash my face and am so blind that I find myself trying to do everything one handed and blind. This feature is so wonderful because all I have to do is hold out my hand and the perfect face wash amount is dispensed. The only complaint I have about this feature is that it is super sensitive and will go out when I brush my teeth but this issue is easily fixed by turning the dispenser off.
