REVIEW- Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Pads

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So I have recently been trying out the clearasil ultra rapid pads that claim to visibly reduce spot size and redness in 4 hours, they are basically a chemical exfoliator and an affordable one too cost around £5.39, and for that you get 65 pads which last you awhile.

This is what Clearasil says about these pads: "Cleanse, exfoliate and help clear spots fast, with Acceladerm technology, Clearasil spot fighting ingredient works with the skin to open up blocked pores, which can lead to spots and breakouts." They you should use these pads every morning and night, and wipe gently over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. So basically they are a pre-soaked pad that you wipe all over your face after cleansing.As these are pre-soaked pads you would think that they would dry out very easily after you opened them but they don't they stay moist, the packaging is a white plastic tub so nothing fancy but you wouldn't expect fancy packaging at £5.39.

I used these pads only in the evening because I found them kinda harsh for the morning and only want to exfoliate my skin in the evening so its ready for the next day. I must state that these pads have a strong chemical smell which is very off putting and if you have very sensitive skin then these could make your skin go red because they certainly made my skin go red after the first couple of uses and my skin isn't sensitive. I do have to say though that it does do a good job at exfoliating the skin, I didn't notice much when it came to spots but I do believe that not a lot of products do help spots, but it definitely exfoliated my skin and made it look clearer.

The ingredients in them are:

  • Aqua

  • Alcohol Denat

  • Salicylic acid (which helps spots)

  • Glycerin

  • Isoceteth-20

  • Sorbitol

  • Sodium Hydroxide

  • Parfum

  • Lavandula Stoechas extract

  • Helichrysum

  • Italicum extract

  • Cistus Monspeliensis Extract

  • Disodium EDTA

So as you can see from the the ingredient list that it is mainly chemicals, which obviously give it that chemical scent, it nearly reminds me of bathroom cleaner because it's that strong.

Would I repurchase them? And the answer is no simply because of the scent is off putting and can be quite harsh on the skin which isn't what you want when exfoliating.

I would say though that if you do suffer from a lot of breakouts then to try them because this product wouldn't break the bank.

You can buy these pads from supermarkets and boots and Superdrug.

Thank you for reading

See you next time
