Yep, that’s right – this slick looking (and pink) thing is a new face wash dispenser for Clearasil’s new girl-friendly face wash. If you haven’t heard of Clearasil before then you are probably one of those lucky people who didn’t suffer from spots as a teen. But if you did (as I did) then you will probably be familiar with Clearasil for treating spots and helping keep hormonal skin as clear as possible. On the downside, Clearasil is pretty extreme stuff and I always remember it having a tendency to strip the skin and leaving it feeling quite dry.
Well, to go with the shiny gadget Clearasil are also launching two new variants of the face wash that are a bit gentler, but still claim to do the job of keeping skin clear and spot-free..it’s called the ‘Clearasil Perfect Wash System’.
The new formulas are not only gentler but they are also scented (there’s a fruit scent and a plant scent) so they actually smell good rather than medicated. If you have read my blog for a while then you will know how much importance I put on a product smelling nice – it really is something that will make me decide if a product is a winner or not.
Now, I haven’t tried the new face wash as I don’t really suffer from spots – but I’m going to pass this gadget on to a friend to give it a test. But I do love the new dispenser – it’s a totally hands-free gadget, you just wave your hand underneath the spout and the ideal dose of Clearasil wash will be dispensed – each bottle apparently contains enough for 100 doses.
The Clearasil Perfect Wash system will cost £12.99 which comes with enough product for six weeks (100 doses) – refills will also be available so a new kit isn’t needed each time.
What do you think? I know I’d much rather have this in my bathroom than a bottle of old-school Clearasil. But perhaps not right next to this sink in case everyone uses it as hand wash…!
