Clean&Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser Review

Ok, this facial cleanser is an interesting one.

Contained in a practical and hygienic transparent squeeze bottle, Clean&Clear's Morning Burst Facial Cleanser is a foaming cleanser 'fomulated with Bursting Beads with vitamin C and ginseng to provide nourishment for the skin', recommended for normal, oily and combination skin types.

Doesn't the product inside the bottle look amazing? When I first saw it, I imagined the product to be somewhat 'scrubby' like an exfoliater, considering all the pretty beads and knowing that the range targets younger teens (in most cases, have acne-prone skin from unhealthy diet and screwed up sleeping patterns).

It's not though. It's just your regular gel cleanser with cute and colourful, floating beads that immediately 'bursts' as you press against them. It may look like there's lotsa beads, but most of them stick to the inside of the bottle, so I'd only get about 4-5 beads per use.

For reference, my skin lacks [a whole lot of] moisture and hydration in texture, but can be shiny in appearance, with fewer pimples here and there at random times. My main concerns are the drier patchy areas though, so I'd usually ditch foaming cleansers altogether (since they can be quite abrasive).

To my surprise, this cleanser is impressively gentle on the skin whilst still maintaining a great job at cleansing the morning skin's impurities, although in cooler seasons, it can be a tad drying. Frankly, I didn't notice any improvements in tone, texture or appearance, although my sister (of oily and acne-prone skin) says she sees little improvements with her small, bumpy pimples.

One last thing I personally love is the fresh and fruity citrus scent in this cleanser which essentially is the main deal of the overall product. It is described to help waken up the morning's skin and senses. Not sure about you, but I generally don't really work my sense of smell during cleansing routines to avoid cleanser up my nose, but when I do, I do find it to be quite nice and refreshing for the morning.


An oil-free and hypoallergenic gel-based cleanser formulated with tiny cute [Bursting] Beads (proclaims to contain vitamins) that breaks upon use. Doesn't strip off the skin's natural oils and doesn't leave that 'tight' feeling, but also doesn't provide any additional moisture. Contains a refreshing fruity citrus scent which is great for the early mornings to help freshen up both the skin and sense of smell. Product is contained in a perfect transparent squeeze bottle which is not only travel-friendly, but also allows you to see how much product is left. Most likely not the best choice for drier skin types since it does have the potential to leave the skin feeling tight and dry, especially in the cooler seasons. However, very suitable for normal, oily, combination skin and acne-prone skin.

Have you tried this cleanser or any other products by Clean&Clear?
I've tried their Essential Moisturiser which is also great for normal, oily and combo skin!

Clean&Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser retails for $10.99 (240mL) at Priceline, leading supermarkets, variety stores and pharmacies.

  1. This is so pretty, I love gel type cleansers like this and the idea of the bursting beads is really fun.

  2. I use this to clean my make-up brushes. If it doesn't break out my skin, then it shouldn't break me out from washing my brushes with it like baby shampoo and brush cleanser does.

    Also, thought I'd let you know that Revlon Lip Butters are on a BOGO sale as of tomorrow at Priceline, so it works out to about $11 each which is pretty good as buying them online works out to about $10 each.
    Look on their FB page for a picture about 20% off, and you'll see my comment.

    1. What?! You use face cleansers to wash your brushes?! Never heard of that one before :P

      Thank you so much for letting me know! I'm already looking forward to purchase some and receive that giant goodie bag tooooooooo!!! :D Yay!!!


  3. I remember when this first came out and I was so skeptical. haha but I think I would really enjoy the citrus scent though it would annoy me that so few beads actually come out!
