Beauty Review: Citrus Clear Face Cleansing Products


Citrus Clear is a company devoted to making skin cleansing products that are also GREAT for the environment as they are for your skin. You’ll not find any chemicals or anything harmful in the ingredients.





Tangerine Tingle

WP_001944WP_001945
They sent me three products to review. The first product is the Tangerine Tingle. This is built to repair! It is designed to remove dead skin cells, while enabling a clearer, brighter complexion.

Tangerine Tingle $12.75
About it: The Tangerine Tingle Face Scrub can be used as a face wash or a face mask. The longer you leave it on, the more it tingles! The tingling action is from the ingredients in the scrub doing two things. One, removing dead skin cells and two, stimulation production in new, fresh skin cells. It contains gentle exfoliating ingredients which remove oil, dirt and impurities. It contains glycolic acid which exfoliates dead skin cells and keeps pores from clogging. Lemon oil helps improve and brighten complexion.
There are two ways that you can use this. You can use this as an exfoliating face wash, OR you can use it as a mask. To use this as a wash, you wash your face with warm water, and apply with gently circular motion to exfoliate the skin. As a mask you apply this and leave it for 2-4 minutes and rinse with cool water.
I love the packaging of these items. This comes in a 2 oz. glass jar with a tangerine label on the top of the jar. As I opened the jar, the first thing I noticed was how great it smelled. It smells JUST like tangerines!
This is awesome for using in the morning. The fresh Orange/Tangerine fruit smell is refreshing and invigorating. It wakes up my senses and my face. I use this more as a mask then as a wash, although before I wash it off, I make sure to rub it around my face to exfoliate.
The longer it’s on my face, the more it starts to tingle. I love putting this on my face before I start my day, it FEELS amazing. My skin just feels so clean and refreshed after. I can tell that the combination of these three items not only repair damaged skin, but also keep the acne at bay.
I’ve had really oily skin since I’ve started tanning. It’s where I sweat in the tanning bed, so I make sure to exfoliate every other day with this and continue with the rest of the Citrus Clear line!
Lemon Grove Antibacterial
Acne Wash
WP_001948
This is built for controlling the acne. Designed for acne-prone skin. Exclusive citrus formula fights acne and kills bacteria.
  • maximum strength
  • prevents breakouts
  • amino acids and vitamin C
  • Organic Ingredients
Control Acne Wash $34.99
About it: Control Acne Wash clears acne, blackheads and oily skin with an uplifting note of citrus. It's a powerful face wash for oily, acneic, problematic and combination skin. The formula contains a mix of the most potent citrus and acne fighting ingredients that will reduce acne and excess oil from facial skin. The ingredients are designed to penetrate pores and fight acne causing bacteria. The vitamins and minerals remove excess oil and keeps pores from clogging.
Directions: gently wash face with warm water. Massage lightly onto skin paying attention to oily, acne prone areas. Rinse. Can be used twice a day.
WP_001951
This is the second thing I use in the morning (AND use it at night as well). This is a thick, yellow gel like face cleanser that DOES smell like lemons. It can be used by itself, or following the Tangerine Tingle.
It suds up very easily, so you don’t need very much at all to get your entire face and neck (possibly 1/2 pump.) The bottle is glass with a pump action top that locks closed when not in use.
This is awesome for cleansing the face of all bacteria (which causes blemishes and acne). I don’t get a LOT of acne, but I do get SOME. I do get a LOT of pesky blackheads on my nose though, which I hate.
I noticed that the oil coming from my nose pores wasn’t as bad when using this. I could easily squeeze the blackheads out after using it. Usually there was too much oil for me to do so. I could get some of them out, but not all. Within two days of using this, my blackheads were almost all gone.


Grapefruit Acne Spot
Treatment
WP_001949
This is also built to control acne. Spot treatment to heal, fight, and fade acne. Convenient size for portability for anytime, anywhere acne control.
  • Salicylic acid dissolves oil
  • Minimizes pores
  • prevents breakouts
Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatment $12.99
About it: This spot treatment contains a maximum strength dose of salicylic acid to treat existing and prevent future breakouts. It even prevents the formation of blackheads. It contains 100% naturally derived grapefruit extract and vitamin C. This is the best defense against breakouts of acne. It's designed for use right on the spot where the acne breakout has occurred. It may be used up to 5 times per day to clean away the oil and heal the site of the acne.
Directions: Apply to target area. Can be used multiple times per day. For face and body applications.
WP_001952
The grapefruit acne spot treatment is also a thick gel. You need VERY little because it only goes on spots where you have blackheads or blemishes that are already existing.
This can be used on your face AND body blemishes, AFTER cleansing but before putting moisturizers, lotions, or toners on. I use this after I have used the Tangerine Tingle and the Acne wash.
After I squeeze the excess blackheads from my nose, or pop any remaining blemishes- I rub this into it. It burns for a second, but then it sinks in and starts smoothing the skin out.
I was happy with all 3 products- and the best thing about them is that they are organic and don’t cost an arm and a leg.!
