First Impressions: Clearasil PerfectaWash

So many of you have probably seen the Clearasil PerfectaWash reviews all over YouTube like I have. To my surprise, I managed to find one at my local drugstore. I was apprehensive at first, since all the reviews I had seen were sponsored, but after mulling it over, and being reminded by the packaging that it costs less than Proactiv (which is what I currently use) I decided to get it. The next surprise for me was that it was on sale for $15 rather than the retail price of $20. So there's 100 doses in each bottle, you get 2, so I can wash my face 200 times, plus the fancy dispenser, for $15. Seems like a good deal to me.
The setup was easy, batteries included. I decided to try the Super Fruit Splash wash for now. I like the smell, just a hint of fruit, and it lathers nicely. For me, the hands free dispenser makes it fun to use, and I can never be too lazy to wash my face. It lets out about a quarter sized drop per use. That's about what I normally use, so the whole 'perfect dose' business doesnt have any appeal to me. It does make my face feel dry after washing. If I don't moisturize, I regret not doing it. But it is not terribly uncomfortable. The most noticeable thing is that it made my skin SUPER soft. Even my boyfriend noticed a difference.
And for the most important part, what did it do for my acne? There's a claim on the box that results could be seen within 12 hours. I saw in change in maybe 3 of my pimples out of about 15 in 12 hours. I've had it for a little less than a week now, and it's done pretty well for the acne I had, however, it has not stopped new pimples from forming. Also it hasn't done anything for my stubborn blackheads.
So all and all I'm not sold on PerfectaWash just yet. I love how soft my skin feels after using it, but it's too soon to see what it will do for my acne. I will be doing an update next month to see if my acne has improved. Here's a link to amazon if you're interested in this product. I bought this with my own money and Clearasil doesn't even know I'm posting this.
Thanks for reading!
