Jason Super-C Cleanser

Jason Superskin C Cleanser

Before I start with the review, I’m going to tell you the story of how I got addicted to the Jason Ester C line.

I got ‘acquainted’ with the Jason Ester C skin care line back in 2006 when I was still afraid of parabens.  I wanted to replace my then holy grail Olay Total Effects cleanser and moisturizer. I wasn’t really looking for anything in particular.  I just wanted to grab something cheap and paraben-free.  But it was actually the packaging that caught my eye. Except for the Jason Ester C creme that comes in a pot, all else come in cylindrical plastic bottles.

I grabbed the cleanser, toner, and lotion (facial moisturizer)–yes, I’m the type who gets a whole line of cleanse-tone-moisturize products.  I never really replaced it since. Occasionally, I use Olay moisturizers when I’m in skin treatment.  Recently, I alternate the cleanser with Cyleina black pearl.

Now on to the review.

Formulation

Consistency
Jason Super-C cleanser has a thin consistency–thinner than most facial wash.  Its scent is a cross between orange dequadin and orange-flavored tic-tacs.

Ingredients
Next to water, the first 3 ingredients are gentle surfactants followed by glycerin and calcium ascorbate, a vitamin C derative.  All the rest are mostly preservatives commonly used in products that do not have parabens.

The Experience

The cleanser doesn’t lather much but since it doesn’t contain sulfates, that didn’t surprise me. While it  doesn’t lather much, it does a good deal of cleaning and a little goes a long way. This usually lasts me 4 to 6 months of morning and night use. Once, I accidentally got this in my eye.  I was surprised that it didn’t sting.

The Result
I don’t need to say this but obviously, I like it.  I’ve been using it for almost 5 years. Even now that I’m no longer afraid of parabens.

Non-drying. I love that even if I wash my face for a full 60 seconds, it doesn’t dry me out.  I don’t feel like my skin is stripped off of all oil and moisture.  Sometimes, I use it as a mask too.  I just let it sit until it dries, then I wash it off.  Even then, I don’t feel like my skin is dried out.

Good makeup remover. It’s good in removing foundation in a sense that after swiping toner, I don’t see foundation on the cotton pad.  I’m just not sure if it’s because of the cleanser or the fact that I usually wash my face for at least 30 seconds. Maybe both.

(Could give a) Radiant glow. 
Honestly, I can’t attribute ‘glow and radiance’ to this alone since I’ve always used this with the rest of the Jason Ester C line.

I recommend this for all extremely oily people like me.

Other Notes

One of the surfactants, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine, can be a strong allergen. I’m happy I’m not allergic to it.

It has a 4.2 out of 5 overall-rating at makeupalley.com (51 reviews) and it has a 4.3 and 4.0 rating on acne-prone and oily respondents respectively.

It costs Php 430+ at Healthy Options and is packaged in 6 fl. oz. or 177ml. flip cap (?) bottle.

  1. I use this product too, and I like it very much. By far, this is the best facial cleanser that I've used. One thing I don't like about it is that it's kinda hard to rinse off like dove, but I don't mind because it really did help in getting rid of my pimples :)

  2. I tried avalon organics vitamin c, pero mas gusto ko talaga to. I just used avalon for a week lang on my face tapos I used it na lang as body wash. I can't really make a review on that. :P

    I'm thinking of getting Alba acnedote as alternative to this, kasi of all three expensive talaga ang Jason.

    And yes, got to love Healthy Options!

  3. I'm happy with my cleansers from Avalon Organics and Alba Botanica but after reading your review, I want to try this one. I love Healthy Options for their skin care products. 

What do you think?
