Hello beauties, its been a week that I have not updated my blog. So here is a new post. Today I am going to review the Clean and Clear Skin Balancing Moisturizer Oil Free Lotion. This is one of my favourite lotions and also one of the best oil free lotion. Since it is summer time, we often skip our moisturizer,thinking that they make the skin more oily and dark.

My take on the product
A year back,I was too reckless when it came to skin care, I never realized the importance of CTM i.e Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing. I had a lot of whiteheads and acne, honestly speaking, I was really fed up of white heads erupting again and again. I had no faith in parlour clean ups, they led to outbreak of white heads into pimples and boils and some of them of the clean ups were so harsh that it left marks on face. Finally, I started doing clean ups myself with a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. My worry was looking out for a good moisturizer for oily skin. I have always found Clean and Clear products trustworthy when it comes to skin care. I bought this Oil free moisturizer to see if really controls oil and helps in preventing growth of acne and white heads. To begin with, this moisturizer comes in standard clean and clear packing with a blue flip cap. The moisturizer is a white, thick and has a light water base consistency.
The moisturizer has a pleasant fragrance. The bottle is sturdy and travel friendly. After using this moisturizer, in the first few uses I got a small breakout of pimple, that was because I used it in a very large amount. I later realized that it needs to be applied in small amounts to get desired results. I usually apply moisturizers when my face is a little damp, so that it get absorbed easily into the skin. This is the best moisturizer for oily and acne prone skin. It is non greasy and oil free, you will not sticky after its application and also it has helped in reducing pigmentation and red spots. I still have white heads and black heads but it has considerably reduced after its application and also after taking Cleansing, Toning and moisturizing seriously.
