When I first discovered the L’Oreal Paris Go 360Ëš Clean Collection, I eyed it with a dose of my typical, healthy skepticism. Was I really to believe the decidedly low-tech-seeming Scrublet™ cleansing tool – which brought to mind anti-skid shower stick-on pads – was anything but another cute gimmick, best left with mood lipstick and clear mascara?
Consider me a believer. Although it looks basic enough, the Scrublet™ is an efficient little skin helper that makes for a more enjoyable cleansing experience – which could ultimately make for a more regular cleansing routine, a necessary first step to clear skin. Soft, flexible Scrublet™ lives conveniently within its cleanser bottle and even has a teeny suction cup, so you can also affix it to tile or mirror. With five hundred tiny little ‘touchpoints’ that gently massage skin while whipping up a creamy, tingly, rich lather; it’s like a personal army of tiny, tireless fingers working to remove every last speck of make-up, dirt, and oil – millimeter by millimeter; pore-by-pore.
The new Go 360Ëš Clean Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser features a formula with proven acne-fighter 2% Salicylic Acid to exfoliate, help eliminate bacteria, and help prevent future breakouts; glycerin is also added, for moisture. Additionally, a proprietary molecule called ER195LHA aids with microexfoliation and sloughs away dead skin, while leaving healthy skin alone. In its own clinical studies, L’Oreal Paris found Go 360 Clean Anti-Breakout Facial Cleanser significantly decreased the number of blemishes and blackheads, and reduced sebum production and signs of marks.
The dermatologist-tested new Clearasil Ultra Acne + Marks Range helps speed the disappearance of marks on skin as soon as they start to form, with the ingredients Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and licorice root extract. The Clearasil Ultra Acne + Marks Wash and Mask does double duty: use daily to help keep pores and skin clear; or, let the formula remain on skin longer for a deeper cleansing mask treatment. To oust a blemish that’s already taken up residence on your face, try Clearasil Ultra Acne + Marks Spot Lotion, a maximum-strength lotion with the same powerful ingredients as the Wash and Mask. The lotion may be used one to three times daily; it’s an affordable spot treatment that smells clean and fresh, feels light, and slips into skin nicely, without overdrying.
