Skin Care Routine Perfect for a Tween, Teen, or Even an Adult #ClearasilMom

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Clearasil. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Clearasil Products #ClearasilMom

I noticed a few months ago that my son who was eleven at the time was getting a pimple popping (no pun intended) up on his face here and there.

I’m afraid this is something he gets from me. I started getting acne outbreaks at about the same age and was plagued by zits my entire teen life. Heck, I still am, and I’m fifty.

Seriously, shouldn’t I be over acne breakouts? I know right!

Clearasil Before Collage #ClearasilMom

Before Clearasil. Okay, I know a closeup of my pimples is not attractive and I can’t believe I’m showing them, but it is what it is. 🙂

It is frustrating as a mom (not only to have to deal with a pimple myself at my age) that my son has to deal with it. My wish would be that he had a clear complexion and never have to worry about acne. Pimples are really tough on a tween or teen. I can still remember the embarrassment and aggravation of dealing with zits.

In fact, I remember a skin/acne breakout being the end of the world.

I have learned over the years that it is important to have a good skin care routine. A couple of weeks ago, my son and I started using two Clearasil products….

  • Ultra Rapid Action Daily Gel Wash – fast acting to give you clearer skin in as little as 12 hours. And that’s important when you’re a tween performing in a play at your local children’s theatre for three weekends with hundreds of people looking at you on stage.
  • Hydra-Blast Oil-Free Face Wash – a daily face wash that is gentle for someone like me with more sensitive skin. It’s also a plus for older women (and men) like me who wants oil-free products. I like that it has a moisturizing complex that leaves my skin soft.

After using both Clearasil products my son’s skin was clear and ready for his opening night in “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” last night. He is very happy about that.

4 days after Clearasil #ClearasilMom

Four Days After Using Clearasil.

I’m also very happy that the two pimples I had two weeks ago are gone and my face was still clear for his opening night as well. My son asked me not to use his photos (before or after) so I’m respecting his wishes.

We both used the Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Daily Gel since we had active breakouts and have been using the Hydra-Blast Oil-Free Face Wash every morning. And my son is realizing the importance of clean, clear skin.

My son and I are very happy with the results we are seeing from using Clearasil regularly. Here’s to beautiful, healthy skin!

Does you teen (or tween) have a skin care routine? Or what is your skin care routine?

  3. Ty says:

    My daughters both have a skin care routine that they both actually enjoy! They don’t use Clearasil but it looks like something they could surely add for clearer skin.

  4. Colleen says:

    I’m trying to get my youngest son to start using something over the counter so he doesn’t get to the point where he needs prescription or something stronger like my oldest son.

  5. HilLesha says:

    I might have to try this. I’m 29 years old and still plagued with teenage skin. I’ve been having issues with acne since I was a pre-teen.

  6. Penny Doty says:

    I have adult children now, but I am 51 and sometimes I will get a zit, but I do have to say you are beautiful in your picture. Thank you for sharing the information and GOD bless.

  7. Tammy says:

    My daughter has been using this and she’s really happy with the results. I like that it’s affordable too, and not pricey like many of the solutions out there.

  8. Raijean says:

    Ooh, I remember the days of using Clearisil. It worked so good for me as a young adult. I should try it again.

  9. I’ll have to give both the Ultra Rapid Action Daily Gel Wash and Hydra-Blast Oil-Free Face Wash a try. I get zits here and there but she gets a lot of blackheads and has been trying to be diligent in keeping her face clean.

  10. Veronica Lee says:

    My youngest son has pimple problems. I might have to get him to try this.

  11. I’m glad you have something that works for you. We have to use things that are prescribed by the doctor.

    The right product is important, and the constant will to keep the routine skin care is more important.

    I don’t have a askin care routine… and probably should. Anything that will help prevent me from having wrinkles. 😉

  17. Liz Mays says:

    That’s great that it did the trick and cleared up his skin. Teen acne is the worst!

  18. I have been plagued with adult acne. It is horrible. I have been using the clearasil as well and it seems to be helping. I did notice that I had a small breakout because I forgot to use it for two days and I was stressed out. So now that they are healing. I won’t be missing a day again. 😉

  19. I have a daughter who uses this brand , and she loves it, She said she really like the way it makes her face feel fresh and all…

  22. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I used Clearsil when I was a teen. I am sure it is new and improved now. I liked it years ago also. Thank you for sharing

  23. My son has the worst skin I have tried several items to get rid of it, and Clearasil is the best thanks

  24. Tracie Russell says:

    Thank you so much for writing such an honest & informative review. My disabled daughter suffers from severe acne and I have been trying to find something that she can do on her own. This looks simple enough, safe enough and the results seem amazing. <3

  25. alicia szemon says:

    I have used clearasil in the past but stopped using it for some reason. Might have to go back to it because by the look of the pictures, it seems like it works pretty well(:

  26. Victoria says:

    This sounds like something I need to share with my little sister… thanks for sharing!

  27. laura rubenstein says:

    I tried Clearasil on my daughter and It did work. It just dried out her skin

  28. Maribel says:

    I would definitely try this i have acne prone skin. Thanks for sharing.

  29. md kennedy says:

    I’ve tried the most expensive products, and I still find myself heading back to Clearasil!

  30. Kelly says:

    I have been blessed with really nice skin. I don’t do much to it, and it just behaves. I feel for those that deal with acne. I had a friend that had tried everything but little brought her any true success. Nice to see new products for this.

  31. Lisa Coomer Queen says:

    Clearasil had been around for a long time. My daughters still use it. Great review.

  32. Julia Rose says:

    I never have used Clearasil. I’ve always been a Biore and Neutrogena girl!

  33. Marcie W. says:

    At almost 32 I still get breakouts, especially before my lady time of the month. I need to see if Clearasil could help my acne without drying my skin out even further.

  34. molly c says:

    love clearasil!

  35. Penelope says:

    You look beautiful, like you don’t even need it. But I guess that means it worked 🙂

  36. krystel says:

    i love clearasil great review

  37. Raijean says:

    I was breaking out so I stocked up on Clearasil. I can’t wait to get my skin back to normal.

  38. susan king says:

    I had acne bad as a teenager and I don’t want my grandkids to have to go through that. So I read reviews and but small containers of it to see if it works for them. If it does I buy them more. Thank you for the review of this one !!
