Not so moisturizing.

Currently watching: Rachael Ray Show
Currently dreaming: of the beach
Currently feeling: nervous


I would have loved it if this product would have lived up to the brand. Unfortunately after a week of using this product, my skin has been anything but clean and clear. I do have very sensitive skin, but it's not prone to breakouts. I actually rarely breakout, but this made my face red, irritated, and a few bumps showed up. I was also really hoping that the "glow" that it gives would be something like what Benefit's High Beam does. Sadly, the glow is nothing more than glitter in the formula.

I can't even say that my dry skin really went away. After reading a few other reviews, many complained about the glitter bothering them and the formula making their skin burn. If you don't have overly sensitive and/or dry skin, maybe this will work for you. I, on the other hand, will continue on my quest to find a decent moisturizer. I am open to suggestions!

I just recently bought Neutrogena's Healthy Defense moisturizer. It's a little thick...more like a sunscreen, but so far I like it. I think once my other normal moisturizer runs out I'm going to try another Neutrogena moisturizer...I've always really loved their products.

I had the same problem with the Clean and Clear - I used it ONCE and broke out which NEVER happens to me.

I highly recommend Arbonne products (now available in Canada!)... I think you'd really like them! They can be pricey, though.

In an effort to be more economical, though, I really like Boots No. 7 Moisture Quench moisturizer. It's available at Target and only about $12.

Sarah: I love Neutrogena products. I'll look at that!

Shannon: I've never heard of Arbonne, but I'll check them out. I always love trying new brands. And sadly, we don't have Target here. That fact nearly kills me! I always stock up when over the border. :)

Mel: I never really used them before, but I thought I would try it. Blech. I have Olay's Quench that I find too heavy for my face, but I should see what they have in way of facial moisturizers.
