Clearasil Rapid Action Pads Review

It's been a mad week back at work after having a week off for my birthday. The week off went way too quickly and to be honest I totally could have done with another week off but hey! I have the privilege of having a Saturday off, which when working in Retail seems very rare. So I thought I would finally write up this post for you.

I picked up this product after having a crisis break out of spots a few weeks back. One reason being I just wanted to try new products to try and control my spots and two because these were on offer so thought I'd give them a whirl. I've tried Clearasil products before and have loved how they worked so I had my hopes up for these. I got these from Tesco and I believe they were around £4 reduced from around £7. They are basically little pads that you wipe over a cleansed face every morning and evening. It then claims that your spots should reduce in size and redness within 4 hours. These are just so easy to use!

So I've been using them for a few weeks now, every morning and before I go to bed and I really do love them! I believe they really have helped reduce my spots and helped stop other occurring spots. My skin is very spot/blemish prone so I'm always on the look out for a new spot treatment in order to find the best option possible. This one comes pretty close but I'm still hunting. When I apply this to my face, after cleansing, over my blemishes you can feel that slight tightness and stinging sensation so as always that triggers to me that somethings working. And to me it seems as if it has been doing the job! I'm not saying that my spots instantly disappear but I do notice after a couple of days of using them on the same spot that it is visibly reduced. Spots always seem to take forever to leave my skin though. I mean I swear I still have some darker, blemish areas which have been there for months and months and months!

One downfall about this product is the smell. Now having spot prone skin I thought I'd be used to the smell of these sorts of products but this one, to me, just seemed ultra ultra strong! It may just be me, the good thing about this one bad point is that the smell doesn't linger. Once I've disposed of the pad the smell is gone so it's not overly bad.

Minus the slight downfall I would definitely recommend these pads if you have the same type of skin as me! I know different products work better or worse with different peoples skin types but if they are still on offer (I'm not sure whether they are or not!) then it's definitely worth the small dent in the purse!

I'd love to know if you've tried these and what you think of them or if you've tried any other Clearasil products within this range and your views on them! Happy Saturday everyone xo
