Clearasil Perfectawash- Week 1 Update

Alright, so it’s been a week since I started using Clearasil’s Perfectawash. I wrote a few times during the week about what i thought about it.

After the first use- I love this stuff already! My face feels so soft and I can't stop touching it to feel its smoothness! I love how it is hands-free to dispense it in your hands. Then when you put it on your face, it foams up a little bit. I could feel the difference between this and Proactiv right away and I love the feeling of Perfectawash so much better! I have a good feeling that this is going to work! We'll just have to wait and see!!

After the second use the next morning- I still love this stuff and I can’t wait to use it again tonight!

Day 4- Ok, now it is starting to make my face dry, so I’m not sure what’s going on. A pimple that I had on my forehead is gone, but now I have developed a new one in the middle of my forehead. And I haven’t noticed much of a difference with the ones on my chin. I’m hoping it doesn’t continue to dry out my face.

Day 5- Face is still dry. I’m just thinking that my face is just getting used to the new wash so hopefully this is just a phase.

Day 7- I’m starting to think that this is making my face work. That pimple that was on my forehead that I said was gone, well it’s back. And I also have a few new pimples around my mouth.

The picture on the left is from before i started using it and on the right is after one week.

As you can see, the pimple on my forehead on the top right has gotten bigger. I think there are also a few others on my forehead that popped up. There’s one on my bottom lip on the right that you can see wasn’t there before. Other than that, I don’t really see that much of a difference. If anything, it made my face get worse. My face has been so dry recently that I’ve been putting Vaseline on my face right after I wash it. But it’s only been a week so I’m going to keep using it and give it a few more weeks. Maybe it just takes a little bit for my skin to get used to it.

Here are the pics of my chin. As you can see on the right, it definitely made the skin on my chin dry. It did take away some of the pimples on my chin though.

So, what do you think? Is this normal for my face to be getting worse at first when trying out a new skin product? Do you think it’s going to get any better?


  1. I came across your blog just by chance and I sell a skin care that might work for you. Aloe is the main ingredient and it works wonders for lots of people. Message me and i can put some samples in the mail for you. Don't put any more vasaline on your face, it will clog your pores and make acne worse. Linda

  2. I got this and loved it at first as well, but now my face whole face is dry and flaky for the past two weeks, I think it's because of 'the perfctawash..

  3. Its a common mistake to use harsh products that over dry the skin and upset the balance... I use Artistry Eseentials Balancing system & I use the soothing creme as a night creme or if the weather is harsh - during the day :) Either way I am enjoying your blog!
