Review of Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10

Product Review: Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10

Back in junior high, my girlfriends and I used to have slumber parties galore. We watched blockbusters like Teen Wolf and bonded over the slathering of "zit cream" to heal our overactive hormones.

Fast-forward to present day. I'm still kind of obsessed with Teen Wolf and those darn pimples have resurfaced yet again. I guess some things never change.

When it comes to spot treatments, I think I've tried them all: creams, gels, concealing treatments, sulfur, salicylic acid...etc. While all skin types will respond differently, benzoyl peroxide seems to do the trick for me, so I decided to give Clean & Clear's Persa-Gel 10 ($4.70) a whirl. Here's what I thought:

  • Consistency — You know how some creams seem to just sit on the surface, never feeling like they've totally sunk in? Not this product. Somewhat of a cross between a light cream and a soft gel, I loved the non-greasy formulation that easily blended right into my irritated pores. It dried very quickly and left a pleasant "it's tingling so it's working" type of sensation.
  • Price — Who can beat it? What a great bang for your buck.
  • Drawbacks — With repeated use, my skin became rather dry around the application areas. I highly recommend using just a dab on an existing breakout or as a preventative measure for problem areas. Also, the product dries with a white residue, so you might consider using it in the privacy of your own home or diluting it with moisturizer if you're going out in public.
  • Overall Performance — Dryness aside, it worked wonders by shrinking out existing pimples, reducing redness, and preventing new breakouts from forming. And the effects are long lasting, too. I could feel this amazing product working its magic throughout the day, long after I had washed my face.
