It can be difficult for me to try new skincare products. I have very sensitive skin so I’m always reluctant to try new systems, even when one is touted as ‘for sensitive skin.’ When I was contacted to review Citrus Clear, I was really intrigued because of what I read about the line:
Citrus Clear is a natural and holistic treatment for acne, sensitive skin and all skin types. We offer natural acne products which include face wash, acne moisturizer, and acne treatments designed to meet the needs of teenagers and adults looking to remove acne. We are known for being the most “natural acne treatment”. We value each of our unique formulas, and ensure that only the most potent citrus juices, extracts, tinctures and peels are used in our acne products. Our natural skin care is made for all skin types. We have an Acne Control line of products, and a Sensitive Skin line of products. The Control line is designed for the purposes of controlling acne; products are maximum strength in acne fighting ingredients. The Sensitive line of skin care products includes a Sensitive Face Wash, and a Sensitive Moisturizer.
As a person with sensitive skin, I have a hard time finding products I can use. I can never find anything gentle enough on my skin. So, seeing that this line was natural, holistic acne-fighting, I agreed to try the products. I’m really glad I did. Below are my thoughts on the products I received and tried:
Sensitive Moisturizer : I love this light-weight moisturizer! Don’t let the fast-absorption fool you. I applied it and was concerned that it disappeared on my skin so quickly, but my skin stayed moist. Love it.
Sensitive Face Wash: I love the smell of this facial cleanser! It cleans thoroughly and doesn’t leave my skin red or irritated like some other products do.
Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatment: I tried this spot treatment and the good news is, it is indeed gentle and did not irritate my skin like other treatments, but I didn’t see it reduce the ‘longevity’ of the occasional pimples that I get. These are just my results and you may find different. It is definitely worth a try if you are like me and cannot use other spot treatments due to sensitivity.
Tangerine Tingle Face Scrub: While this scrub smells amazing, and I WANTED to use it, I simply could not. My skin was way too sensitive for this citrus scrub.
