I’ve been complaining about the weird acne I’ve been getting since the beginning of this summer (which feels like ages ago thanks to this winter weather). I don’t have the deep pockets for a fancy expensive acne skincare system, and I didn’t feel like this was so intense that Proactiv was needed. When my regular cleansers stopped doing their trick I initially switched from my favorite cream acne cleansers to oil-free. My skin would clear up for about a day, and then resume with this new and stupid acne phase.
I reached out to an old friend who is a consultant for Mary Kay and asked her for some much needed skin care advice. She provided me with the answer: The Clear Proof acne system with cleansing gel, toner, acne spot treatment, and a moisturizer.
Step One: Do the whole routine twice a day. Truth? I usually only wash my face in the morning, followed by a makeup removing wipe at night. That was probably my first problem.
Step Two: Use all the products. More truth? I have a toner, but it isn’t the same brand or skin care line as my cleanser. And I almost always skip over it. It makes my skin feel tight and cutting that step out always gave me an extra 5-8 minutes in the morning. Oops.
Armed with this new information and the handy little acne system sample, I tested out Mary Kay’s Clear Proof acne system for two weeks. The conclusion? It not only completely turned my skin around, but also made me realize what a jerk I was being to my poor face. Pretty basic stuff, right? Cleanse twice a day and have a full regimen complete with toner. But I guess these are the things that slip your mind when you’re a busy bee!
The whole kit was gentle on my skin, but was fast to work and left my skin clear of all acne. Plus, at a price of only $20 for the 7 day mini kit, we can all afford to try it out. A dream come true!
