Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay
There is nothing more embarrassing then getting acne at my age. I hit the big 3-0 this year and I never thought that I would still be battling something that began occurring on my skin over 15 years ago. Recently I was sent the Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay. This system has four great products to help keep your skin free and clear.
#1 – Clarifying Cleansing Gel – This gel is oil and fragrance free. It says to apply 1-3 times daily. I started out with one time each day just like the instructions said. I did notice that when I increased to twice a day it dried my skin out. The air has been horribly dry recently so I think that I will wait a few months before I try the twice daily again. But for now the once a day seems to be doing great with my skin! The Clarifying Cleansing Gel helps in reducing black heads and preventing more from appearing!
#2 – Blemish Control Toner – This is my favorite out of all four steps. The Toner leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. It also is supposed to be used 1-3 times a day. I will work my way up to using more often but after two weeks I am still using once a day. It is working great and I look forward to using it before bed every night. It also helps to reduce and prevent black heads and acne!
#3- Acne Treatment Gel – This gel helps to clear up the unwanted acne that I have. Just as the two listed above it states that you can use 1-3 times a day. I have found that I like to use it twice a day. I want these pesky zits to go away and the gel is really helping them disappear!
#4 – Oil-free Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin – I am a huge fan of moisturizer. But, it is so hard to find one that will work with my skin. I hate trying new ones because they always seem to break me out. That was not the case with this Oil-free moisturizer. I have been using it twice a day to help my skin stay hydrated and controls the shine.
I must be honest and say that I have heard of Mary Kay many times…but I have never used any of their products before. This Clear Proof Acne System was a pleasant surprise compared to some of the other acne kits I have used in the past. I love that everything is fragrance free for my sensitive skin. It is all easy to use and has really helped my skin tone!
