Bought for: P90/50ml | Available for P158/100ml

Here's a quick review on a product that has been in the market for years and is something I just tried for the first time. Don't hate me for being a late bloomer, please? Lol.
I remember years back in high school, almost all people I know are using Clean & Clear. It was during their puberty age when this particular product right here became a savior for them. I was so curious, but then I had lots on my plate and I almost forgot to give myself a chance to know what the hype was all about.
When J&J hosted an online sale, I bought a few other bestseller products from their brand which I felt like I neglected and ignored way back. Finally, here's my personal thoughts about it.
CLEAN & CLEAR® Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser cleans skin and washes away problem-causing dirt, oil, and make-up to help skin stay clean and healthy. The rich lather is oil-free and gently removes dirt and oil without over-drying and leaves skin clean and refreshed.

SCENT, TEXTURE AND EASE OF APPLICATION
The scent is very subtle, nothing strong or off-putting. It comes in a clear, runny liquid that foams up when lathered on the skin. It's also quite easy to rinse without leaving any sticky or slimy residue.
Overall, I find this a very basic cleanser. I find that it's very gentle on skin and does not sting at all. Usually, cleanser which lather well are quite drying on the skin but I did not experience such with this product. It thoroughly cleanses the skin and gets rid of dirt and oil residue instantly.
If you are looking for a product that effectively reduces oil or breakouts, this may NOT be for you. Nonetheless, I still like how it cleanses and unclogs my pores without drying it out and causing me further breakouts. I think this may suit whatever skin type you have, may it be normal, sensitive or combination.
Given that it's only less than a hundred bucks, I didn't expect anything special about it--it does its job as a facial wash but nothing more. If you are looking for an affordable cleanser, I still think this is a good catch.
