Clean & Clear ad banned for hiding shiny acne skin

by

Wednesday 6th January 2010

The ASA (Advertising Standards Agency) has banned an advert from Clean & Clear after it used make-up in its adverts that claimed to clear acne.

It said the before and after shots should have been taken in the same conditions to ensure a fair representation to consumers. The advertising agency responsible for the advert then admitted to using a ‘light powder foundation to hide shininess around the T-zone’.

We’re getting a bit tired of reading about dishonest adverts that mislead people into buying products that won’t necessarily work for them. Here at SkinGenesis we provide all our clients with honest, professional advice on skin treatments and never promise ‘perfect skin’, because in the real world, nobody’s skin is perfect.

Instead we aim to provide a programme of treatments that is tailored to your skin type and skin complaint to make sure you get the best possible result. Whether it’s acne treatment, wrinkles, thread vein removal or cellulite reduction, we can treat all kinds of skin problems.

All we would say is don’t trust adverts, don’t expect too much from high street products and try not to waste too much money on trying different solutions. Why not take advantage of our free expert skin analysis so that you can make an informed decision on the products you use?
