Hi there, my darlings! I'm going to come right out and say--if you didn't know, this is my 35th year! 35! And more of the time, my skin doesn't know or remember it. Which is usually great, because I don't have urgent concerns about wrinkle or crow's feet but my skin has other issues. Namely, it still thinks it's a teenager and every once in a while, breaks out into these awful bouts of acne. Pimples at 35? Really no fun! They usually pop up on my forehead or across my cheekbones or along my hairline and let me just tell you, I HATE them! So, while most women my age are looking for firmer skin, I'm usually on the hunt for clear, blemish-free skin. Today, I'd like to share with you my experience with a set of products specifically designed to target my, and perhaps yours or someone you know, particular skin issue--acne. Let's talk about Clearogen's 3-step Acne Treatment Starter Kit.
Each starter kit contains 3 products, as described below and the skincare routine is a 3-step treatment too :
Step 1. Wash with the Foaming Cleanser
Clearogen Foaming Cleanser: Clean skin is a must in the prevention of acne. One of our most popular adult and teenage acne products, Clearogen Foaming Facial Cleanser is a new acne product that effectively removes dirt, makeup, excess oil and harmful acne-causing bacteria, while botanical extracts revitalize and rejuvenate the skin.

Step 2. Apply the Clarifying Toner
Clearogen Clarifying Toner: Clarifying Skin Toner is one of the best products for adult acne.

Step 3. Apply the Acne Lotion. You are done.
Clearogen Acne Lotion: Clearogen Acne Lotion is the most important part of the acne treatment products system. It contains the natural ingredients proven to reduce DHT production and help restore normal oil production to the skin. It also contains Benzoyl Peroxide, to open the pores and kill the acne-causing bacteria. This combination of products makes Clearogen Acne Lotion one of the best acne clearing products on the market today.

* Helps prevent breakout
* For all skin types
Directions: Use once daily. After using Clearogen Facial Cleanser and Toner, apply the lotion evenly over the entire face. This adult or teenage acne product is the final step in clearing up your troublesome acne and should be your first choice for acne products today.
Active Ingredient: Available as a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide formula (for mild to moderate acne) or 3% Sulfur solution (for sensitive skin)
IMPRESSIONS : I've been using this set exclusively every night for the past two weeks now and I'm really loving the difference it's made for my skin! I usually break out right around that time of month or a week just before, but this time the breakouts were much less noticeable--in fact, I think I only got one random pimple!
I used my cleansing brush with the foaming cleanser and while it's pretty mild, it really left my skin feeling squeaky clean. After a long day commuting through New York City and then at work in a lab, at a school that too, it's exactly what I need and want. To feel really clean!
In my regular skincare routine before Clearogen, I would hardly, if ever, remember to use a toner. But I made it a point to follow the 3-step treatment on a nightly basis so I used that toner! I have to say, that it did leave my skin tauter and firmer and just felt healthier!
Now, with the Acne Lotion, I started off using the Benzoyl Peroxide formula but after a couple of nights, I found that left my skin feeling a little too dry for my comfort. I do have skin which can be sensitive at times and I wouldn't classify my acne as more than mild, even at its worst. So I switched over to the Sulfur formula and that worked much better for me! Both target the bacteria that causes acne so you can decide which active ingredient would be best suited for your skin! The formula of the lotions themselves are pretty fast-absorbing so I just massaged a little in right before bed and it absorbed in quite quickly. Easy-peasy!
Overall, I like that it's 3 easy step treatment program and I can use all three products consecutively--one, two, three, done! I don't have to remember to use one thing in the morning versus another at night and even on those nights I'm really tired, I can remember to cleanse, tone and moisturize. My skin looks and feels much better as a result!
