As someone who suffers from acne occasionally, I can tell you that I have scoured the four corners of the earth to find a product that would not only clear up my zits, but keep them at bay.
I was surprised to find that the product that has been working best for my skin was not sitting inside of a dermatologist’s office, but rather right inside Target.
So, without further ado, the face wash that I’ve been using to get my acne under control is none other than (drumroll) Clearasil. Yes, kittens, Clearasil!
I have ignored this product for years, thinking of it as nothing more than a cheap, product for high schoolers. I suppose seeing all of those teenage-focused ads gave me that impression. Boy, was I wrong.
An Incredible Drugstore Acne Treatment
The Clearasil Rapid Rescue Deep Treatment Wash retails for under $10 and delivered on its promise of results within 12 hours.
The face wash contains maximum strength salicylic acid to treat acne. I started with just one application per day and was surprised to see how quickly it started working.
I did find that the product was a bit drying, but not irritatingly so. It was also very expected given that it promised to start working within half a day. I remedied the dryness by applying one of my favourite moisturisers and making sure to drink plenty of water.
I have to be honest, I feel like a fool for ignoring this product for so long. I have battled acne on my forehead and chin area for years because I can’t seem to stop putting my hands on my face.
Even though I wash my hands regularly, I know that it is easy to get them dirty again.
