I am very confused these days. I don’t know whether I should be delighted that winter is here or lament about it. On one hand, my mom has gone all out to delight me with winter delicacies (read: gajar ka halwa) and on the other hand, my supremely dry skin has decided to start a revolt by leaving dry patches on my face and hands. Which is why; off late, I have been experimenting with different products to soothe my extremely dry skin. Did Clean & Clear Oil Free moisturizer work for me? Let’s find out
About Clean & Clear Oil Free moisturizer
A perfect addition to your dry skincare regimen, Clean & Clear moisturizer has an oil-free formula that moisturises without greasiness, and does not clog pores. The salicylic acid in it helps prevent pimples and keep your skin looking clean and clear!

Clean & Clear Oil Free moisturizer comes in a convenient bottle packaging which is easy to carry. It is white in colour and it is fragrance free so that it suits sensitive skin type as well. A small pea sized drop goes a long way and it hydrates my skin immediately.
Now, it does live up to its claims of being oil free and I love how light it is. However, since I have extremely dry skin, I need to reapply it every two hours or so which is not really my favourite thing to do. If you work full time and have to sit in an air conditioned workspace you will find your skin drying up much faster.
I also asked my sister, who has oily skin, to use this moisturizer a couple of times to get her opinion. For her, the Clean & Clear Oil Free moisturizer worked marvelously! All she requires is a little bit of the moisturizer and its hydrating effect lasts for 6 to 8 hours easily. She loves applying it on her face as it contains salicylic acid which prevents pimples and blackheads.
Overall, I would recommend this moisturizer for those with normal to oily skin. For those with dry skin, you might require something a little more nourishing.
