Die oily T-zoneDIE!!!!!! ;)

In our family we have a long history of oily skin.Which is a blessing as well as a curse;)
Today I'll compare for you two products that we have been using for the last 6-7 months.
1.Clean & Clear shine control daily facial lotion
2.Noxema "triple Clean" anti blemish Astringent
One is a toner (clean & clear) and the other is an astringent.
Whats the difference b/w a toner and an astringent, you ask? well as i understand it,Both are suppose to shrink pore and cleanse your skin.sooo not much. Off course i could be wrong;)

Why i bought it?
  • I have used clean & clear before and it has worked well for me.
  • Very affordable.
  • Its GREEN!!(How cute is that color)
My thoughts:
  • Good cleanser.
  • But doesn't get rid of my oily T zone.
  • In fact it makes my skin even more oily.
  • Haven't seen any visible shrinkage of pores either.
As much as i like the color and the bottle.The product just didn't do its job.

Why i bought it?
  • Because it has salicylic acid in it.
  • Affordable.
My Thoughts:
  • Totally works.
  • Keeps face from getting oily.
  • Prevents skin from breaking out.
  • Used on a daily basis , it can be somewhat drying but that can be dealt with by using a good moisturizer.
Which do i recommend?
As fond as i am of clean & clear this product is a bust for me.
Noxema is the clear winner in my book.
Which one would i buy again?
Noxema without a doubt.
Hope this helped:)
Till next time...
