Good little scrub
I usually don't bother with products like Clean & Clear because I don't think my skin is as young anymore, but since I still do tend to break out I figured I might as well give this one a shot and see what happens! First off I like the colours used on the packaging, it appeared really refreshing and bright. However when I went to use it in the shower, the tube is very soft and squishy and you have to press quite hard before any product comes out.
The smell is clean and fresh and the product goes on easily enough over wet skin and stays fairly well while you go on with your shampooing or whatever else it is you do in the shower! Washing off involved the physical exfoliating scrub process which left my skin feeling lovely and smooth afterwards.
Looking in the mirror over the past few weeks I haven't noticed any real difference in the look or texture of my skin so I wouldn't say this really lives up to its claims of being a "facial" in a tube as such. However because it still works well as a nice scrub I would probably keep using this without any problems but wouldn't necessarily purchase again.

Made me break-out :(
First I would like to say thank-you to BH for letting me try this product! The few days I loved this product and the clean and fresh feeling it gave me when I used it. And the smell is so nice and fresh, which I love. But over a couple of weeks of using it every few days, my skin started breaking out. Especially, I noticed around my neck and shoulders. I'm not sure if it's because my skin can be a little more sensitive, but my skin sometimes got some red patches of irritation around the areas I used it. Which is really unusual for me. So I don't think this product is for me, It's such a shame, because I think the idea is great!

I always expect these types of products to be really hash and sting my face, especially when they are not for daily use. However, I was really suprised at how gentle this product was. There was no stinging or hash feeling on my skin at all. The texture is like a fine grit which is gentle but also feels effective. It rinsed off easily and left my skin feeling clean. The fragrance is neutral. I noticed an immediate reduction in redness of my blemishes after use but haven't yet noticed a long-term benefit.

I loved the feeling of putting it on in the shower, the tingle and the smell. Unfortunately this made my skin too sensitive and has broken me out in little pimples.
It has not made a huge difference in any other aspect of my skin but I do concede that this often has to do with using it for such a short period of time.
It is a cheap product and I would recommend it to people who have less sensitive skin. I gave it to my friend and she really enjoyed it!
Overall I will continue to use the product for another few months and I will give an update to all you beauties out there after my skin gets used to using something with AHA's in it.
Thanks BH for letting me review this product

Cheaper than a facial, with the same result!
I trialled this for the Trial Team. It came in a great package with two tubes (one of which I gave to a friend), a shower puff and a face towel. So generous!
This is a product that definitely does what it says. We all know that lots of products make big claims, and then fail to live up to them, but Clean & Clear’s Deep Action In-Shower Facial is not one of them.
As a teenager with a meager budget, a facial isn't really a possibility for me at the moment, which is why I was super excited to trial this! I really liked the packaging, which looked clean and fresh. The product itself is of a thick, creamy texture, sort of a cross between a face scrub and face mask.
It's easy to apply: you just rub a small amount in the palm of your hand and then apply it all over your face. After leaving it for about a minute my face felt a bit tingly so I washed it off, leaving me with smooth, seriously clean skin that felt cool and refreshed.
After using this product for a few weeks my skin is looking fab, and I've also noticed a reduction in the amount of blemishes I was getting, which is always great!
Overall, I think that this is a fantastic cleanser, definitely one of my new favourites! It's affordable and leaves my skin looking amazing. I know I’ll be buying it again.

Impractical and N
This product really isn't for me. I'm 23 and still suffer from the occasional breakout, so I usually love Clean and Clear products. Unfortunately this product is a bit nondescrpt because it neither meets Clean and Clear's usual anti-acne product claims nor does it provide a practical product solution for specific problem.

Great for those on the go
I’d just like to say thanks a bunch, Beauty Heaven for giving me a chance to try this product and of course, saving me time in my skin routine :D
This product comes in an easy squeeze tube and is pretty alright value for a mini facial that won't have you splurging and saves you time in the morning.
I have mild teenage acne, oily skin and suffered through a breakout so it was perfect timing receiving this product. This does the job, smooths, cleans and refreshes skin in the morning. These products definitely works best in a hot, steamy shower to soften and clear out the gunk in my pores, absorb excess surface oil and also provides mild exfoliation which is a plus for me. I like to leave the mask a little longer and after that, massage the beads into my skin. While using this product for about say 10 days? .. there wasn’t any major improvements in my skin and did not aggravate my acne but did help clear my breakout and gave my skin a smooth texture. This product has a neutral scent and caused no irritation except a slight tingling. Overall I’m happy with the product and have no negative feedback however this product could be improved if it didn’t cause sun sensitivity to the skin
I’ll definitely continue using this product and post an update if there are any improvements to my skin.

Does what it says!
I’ve been trailing this product over the last couple of weeks, and I must say I am impressed. Like most people, I find myself to be short on time in the mornings, so I rush through my morning routine. With this product, that can be a thing of the past as it works while you’re in the shower.
The 150g tube makes the product easy to use. Just squeeze a small amount onto your finger tips and apply generously over your face. You only need a small amount, so this product will go a long way.
The smell isn’t overly powering, however I could feel a slight tingling sensation as the product went to work.
After I rinsed it off my face, my skin felt soft, smooth and cleansed, and it looked much more radiant than usual. With continued use, I could see gradual improvements in my skin, so I am looking forward to using this product long term.

Essential for those who want a quick, no-fuss facial
Thank you to BH for providing me with this product to trial. The package arrived with not one, but two tubes, a shower puff and a face towel - which made this experience rather indulgent, so thank you!
I have previously used Clean & Clear products during my teenage years, and to be honest, I have found their products to be aimed for those with acne. As I don’t have acne anymore, I was a bit apprehensive about this product initially.
This product comes packaged in a 150g, generously sized, opaque squeezy tube and flip top cap. It’s sturdy, sits nicely in the shower caddy. However, I prefer that the packaging is transparent for ease of judging when I need to replace it.
The Clean & Clear Deep-Action Inshower facial aims to give you a facial that can be conveniently completed within the time that you shower. It works with the steam to help penetrate the pores to gentle exfoliate and remove built-up dirt and oil. I also noticed that the product contains gentle AHAs which chemically exfoliate the skin, without the harsh, abrasive feel that you can get from manual scrubs (yes, I am looking at YOU, walnut-shell scrub!)
The product’s texture is thick, creamy with gentle exfoliating beads. It has a tingle as you apply, and the fragrance is mildly fruity. It lathers very easily, so you only need a small amount. The product washes off cleanly with no filmy residue.
I used this 3 times a week as instructed, and I found that my skin was clearer, had less blackheads, felt smoother and my pores were more refined/had less blockages. It did not break me out, however I did feel a little tight on the cheeks afterwards – nothing a bit of my normal moisturiser did not fix. As my skin is combination with quite dry cheeks, I believe that 2 times a week would be sufficient in the future. I was also very diligent with sunscreen use when using this product, as the AHAs apparently can make you skin more sensitive to the sun. I didn’t have any problems with skin irritation from the sun as I wear SPF30+ daily without fail.
I would highly recommend this product (and purchase it too!) to those with combination and oily skin – dry skins should approach with caution. I would purchase this product again as I found it gentle enough for adult skin, effective, economical, and why would I go to salon and pay several times the amount to have a similar product applied to my skin?!! Go figure!
