Product Claim & Swatch:

Clean & Clear Fairness Face wash Review


1)It is a super creamy cleanser which cleanses well.

2)It contains rice,lily and cherry extracts which are rich in anti-oxidants and vitamins.

3)The Fairness part they claim is "Niacinamide" which lightens blemishes.

4)It is suitable for Normal skin.

5)Easy availability & Affordable.

6)It has cherry fragrance.


1)It is highly comedogenic.It is not suitable for oily and acne prone skin.

2)It broke me out.

3)It can make skin a bit dry.

Directions for use:

Take required quantity of cleanser,massage on wet face.Rinse it with water.


Clean & Clear products are easily available in all super markets,cosmetic stores and online stores.

Final Verdict:

I really hate the fairness trend in India and the brands which exploit customers by false claims.Sadly even Clean & Clear picked up on this trend and launched Fairness cream and face wash.I do like a couple of Clean & Clear products hence I tried this face wash about a year ago.It broke me out badly.It will work for Normal skin but given that Clean & Clear is known for acne skin care range,they end up making this face wash highly comedogenic and not at all suitable for oily and acne prone skin.It claims to be "Oil-free and Won't clog pores" but it exactly did the opposite.So I did not like this face wash at all and I will not recommend it as well.Nothing exceptional about this cleanser.

My Rating:1/5
