Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash
Clearasil Product Information Review
The consistency of the product is like that of a liquid hand soap. It is very creamy, and it feels soothing when it goes on the skin. Once on the skin, the Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash, lathers very well and feels smooth.
It is recommended that Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash be used every day, morning and night, by wetting your face and squeezing out a small amount into the palm of your hand. Work the product on the face with the water into a rich lather and massage the face. Rinse well with warm water. Pat the face dry with a towel. Do not rub your face because this can faciliatate the spread of Propionibacteria, which is the bacteria that is responsible for causing acne breakouts.
Warnings: Avoid contact with eyes, and do not use on infants or children under 6 months of age.

About the Ingredients in Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash
The main ingredient in Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash is Glycerin. Glycerin is a thick liquid that has no color and tastes sweet. It is most commonly used in soap and other beauty and acne treatment products.
Glycerin helps trap moisture in the skin, and it is one of the reasons why Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash does not dry out skin. It is also why it is a good option for anybody that does have dry skin. Glycerin absorbes water from its surrounding environment, and this helps basically when there is little moisture outside and your skin becomes dry due to the lack of moisture. This acne product helps to extract every bit of water from the air, and trap it in your skin in order to hydrate.

Side Effects of Glycerin (Face Wash)
Glycerin has no negative side effects and is purely non-toxic. It is very safe in face washes such as this, and it is perfectly fine to use it in a face wash. The pure form of Glycerin should not be used on skin because of its incredible water-attracting properties.
Consumer Reviews for Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash
Most consumers agree that this acne tratment, clears pimples, spots, and treats blackheads, if used continuously as directed. One consumer said, "It's a good facial cleanser that does what it claims to do...But I would not use it as my only means of fighting acne. After cleansing with this I usually use medicated acne cream." Another claimed, "This product is great and I would recommend it to anybody with light acne!"
Bottom Line Review
Collectively, this product earns 3 stars, for being a good cleanser, but for not getting rid of acne very quickly and effectively.
I would recommended this face wash to anybody who has light acne, and is looking for a gentle cleanser that does not dry skin if used as directed. If you do experience any dryness, reduce the times you use the face wash cleanser to just once a day in the morning. I have used a whole bottle of this acne treatment, and it really feels like it cleans and reduces the appearance of blackheads and small acne spots.
I do not use this product as the only acne treatment alone. I often use a light acne cleanser after using Clearasil Oil-Free Daily Face Wash, and then use a light moisturizer over that, such as Aloe Vera.
