I have tried several acne products & several acne Himalaya Products. Most of them worked on pimples & marks, such as Acne-n-Pimple Cream from Himalaya, but didn't control the new ones from coming. What I want, the complete vanish treatment of sebum production so that my face is totally free acne & marks. Scroll down to see how CLARINA worked for me.

CLARINA Anti-Acne Kit


Product Description


Acne control: Clarina Anti-Acne Face Wash Gel has anti-inflammatory, keratolytic (a peeling agent), antioxidant and antibacterial properties, which work synergistically to control acne. It eliminates propionibacterium acnes, the acne bacterium, and prevents excess sebum production, one of the main causes of acne.

Wound healing: Clarina Anti-Acne Face Wash Gel heals wounds, lesions, and acne scars more quickly.





Key ingredients:


Neem (Nimba) is especially beneficial for skin disorders like eczema and minor skin infections. Neem leaves also eliminate acne-causing bacteria.


Barbados Aloe (Ghrita-kumari) has potent antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal properties, which are beneficial in treating skin wounds, allergies, and insect bites. Aloe has soothing properties which relieve dryness and itching.


Turmeric (Haridra) has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe the skin gently. The herb helps to even out skin tone and color, making it an excellent ingredient in a face wash. Turmeric also helps to retain the skin’s elasticity and makes it more supple.

Packaging: It comes in a squeezable tube with flip-flop cap. Packaging is really attractive with green & silver color combination. This totally gives you a feel of a worthy product. 

Color & Consistency: It has semi-runny consistency and is in semi-gel form. Neither too thick nor too thin. Has a bit brownish-golden color to it which is also an attraction. 

Fragrance: I LOVE the Fragrance of this gel. So natural & earthy and it totally refreshes your senses. Honestly! I mean you have to try it once and I'm sure you'll love it. Doesn't smell something like chemical at all. So soothing and refreshing fragrance.

Effectiveness: It is a mild one and doesn't irritate the skin. It cleans the oil and dirt gently and also maintains the moisture level at the same time. It doesn't rip all the oil from face and you won't get that stretchy feeling after the wash. Not a strong one so can be used by all types of skin, either dry or oily, normal or sensitive, it will suit all. It is good for controlling tiny pimples caused by only dust & pollution. But if you are facing pimples because of diet or hormones, it may not work for you. It is only good for removing daily dirt & oil. As the season changes, my skin faces bad dryness around my nose & lips. This face wash is effective in that case. It cleanses without leaving the skin extremely dry. A good option all types of skin.

Reduces inflammation: The face mask inhibits the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) with its antioxidant activity, reducing inflammation due to acne-causing bacteria. It also prevents scar formation.







Key ingredients:


Barbados Aloe (Ghrita-kumari) is revered in Ayurveda for its wound healing properties. It is also beneficial in treating insect bites and allergies. When applied topically, the antiseptic, the astringent and antifungal activity of the herb relieves skin itching and dryness.


Indian Willow (Jalavetasa) clears debris from the skin’s surface and unclogs pores with its deep-cleansing action.


Turmeric (Haridra) has strong anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe the skin gently. The herb helps to even out skin tone and color, making it an excellent ingredient in a face wash. Turmeric also helps to retain the skin’s elasticity and makes it more supple.

Directions for use:


Cleanse face and neck. Apply Clarina Anti-Acne Face Mask evenly all over face and neck, avoiding the area around eyes. Let the mask dry for 10-15 minutes and remove with a wet sponge or towel. Rinse with cool water. For best results, use twice a week





Review 


Packaging: Same like Face wash (as mentioned above). 


Color & Consistency: It has clay like texture and is off-white in color. Spreads easily on the face and doesn't create the mess while applying. 


Fragrance: Has mild fragrance and doesn't irritate the nose. πŸ˜‡

CLARINA Anti-Acne Kit


Effectiveness: It burns a bit where the acne portion is large. But even after this burning sensation, there was no redness or itching. In fact, the redness of pimples was reduced. And there was a noticeable change in redness of pimples after first use only. Maybe that burning sensation was the indication that it is working. Exactly like bleach feels on the skin. So no need to worry, it won't cause any harm to the skin. After a month of usage, there is a reduction in the size of pimples. It doesn't work like a magic, but yes it works. It was visible that my pimple size was 40-50% reduced. It takes time but it shows the result. πŸ˜‡ But if you are facing severe skin allergy or something, it may not work or may take several months to show the result. Here, patience is everything.

Directions for use:


After cleansing face and neck, apply Clarina Anti-Acne Cream on acne lesions and inflamed areas, twice daily, until the lesions have completely healed.




Review 


Packaging: It comes in a squeezable tube with a rotating cap. And just like facewash & mask, the green & silver labeling is an attraction. 


Color & Consistency: Off white color and easily blendable consistency. Neither runny nor thick. Doesn't leave white patches too.

CLARINA Anti-Acne Kit



Fragrance: Not as such. Just a mild touch and won't irritate the senses. 


Effectiveness: Can be used only on acne, or on the whole face. It won't react with skin. Leaves a nice matte effect to and hides all the shine. A good daily use cream and also gives a fairer touch which is plus point. Doesn't leave your skin oily or greasy. Not at all! Now it comes to pimples. It shrinks the size of a pimple and reduces the sebum production. But this process will take time. This cream will work in combination with Facewash & Mask. But if you are looking for only acne cream which works, go for Acne-n-Pimple Cream from Himalaya.
