I realize that I have spent quite a few posts talking about my skin, but it has been a huge problem for me and any advice I can get about it helps so much. Really it does. So because of some advice I got from Nicole, I have switched to the Clinique Acne Solutions skin care line.
I was previously using Proactiv and it just wasn’t working for me and I had had enough!
I don’t know why, but I finally decided that I didn’t want to pay $100/3 months for something that didn’t work.
After my Proactiv was getting low, I decided to cancel it and make the switch to Clinique. The Clinique Acne system is different than Proactiv (obviously). Clinique uses both benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. I believe this is why I have had success with this product. I really do. I honestly can’t really be happier with my skin. Yes, I still have a few blemishes but my dark spots are getting lighter (not sure why) and I just love the way I look without makeup so far. I know it’s early in my new routine, but so far the results couldn’t be any better.
I have also switched makeup to Clinique as well. I use the Acne Solutions foundation along with a pressed powder to “set” the foundation and I use their All About Eyes for my all over concealer.
It works so great on blemishes. I realize that I am paying more than what I did with drugstore versions, but I can tell it’s working, and that is all that matters.
One thing that I added to my routine is that I recently bought Origins products to go with my Clinique stuff. I read an article that was naming some of the best skin care products and Origins Super Spot Remover works great for removing the appearance of spots.
I also bought the Out of Trouble mask that I used last night and my skin felt great and the redness was getting so much better.
I am so happy to finally feel like I have my skin back! What a great feeling!
