The first red flag that we came across is the “free trial.” It has been mentioned on many acne forums that this process is a rip off. Personally we think that consumers can get a little silly when it comes to this. There is fine print that states that you have 14 days to try the product otherwise you are charged. Yes, this is a shady practice, however, it is somewhat common in the industry so that alone cannot judge the product.
The results, however, of this system is enough to based a judgment upon. That is if you can find any results. This system simply doesn’t work. The thought process of this product is sound, and to be honest the cleanser is actually a nice cleanser. The use of chamomile in cleansers is a favorite of ours, and this is yet another example of that. But if nice cleansers were enough to solve your acne problems, you wouldn’t be here reading these reviews, would you? Unfortunately, the cleanser is the only decent product in this system.
The Repairing Gel is one of those products that after a few days you really begin to question what it is doing. There is no evidence of results and to be honest the gel is tacky to wear and feels sticky on your skin, not to mention the way your skin looks while you wear it. Many users reported severe reactions to the Salicylic Acid, claiming it left their skin burning and itching. We saw only a bit of this, and nothing significant enough to classify as a severe reaction.
TriClear is a moderately priced system of products at 69.99 for a two months supply. The “free trial” is concerning and you should understand it but it does not make them a ripoff. People get emotional about things that they did not take the time to read. The concern with TriClear should not be the “scam” pricing, but the fact that it didn’t show us any results, and certainly not within the 14 day trial period. The fact that it is popular and that we have read some great reviews of it, must mean something, perhaps there is a very specific type of skin that it works on. Unfortunately, we didn’t see any evidence to that end, and as a result cannot recommend its use.
