I really REALLY love skin care, I am for sure the person who will try just about any mask, cream, or treatment if made available (and affordably to me). I have had clear skin for the majority of my life up until last year. The universe hated on me and out of no where I had acne. Acne all.over.my.face. At first I thought it was a random breakout. So I would pop pimples (big nono) and try to treat my condition myself (no no again). Things kept getting worse and I finally went to the doctor to get help. I was prescribed Ethromycin and Retin-A and because of those two combinations had to ditch my Peter Thomas Roth cleanser and opt for something that suited my new routine.
I was doing my daily scroll through twitter and saw that Allure magazine has this program called “Try it p”. Editors pick five deluxe samples for you to choose and try. You can pick one or all five (naturally I chose all 5). One of the products I was sent was the Avene Cleanance Gel I fell in love with this and now is my standard every day cleanser. It is formulated with acne prone skin in mind so it’s going to remove all the dirt and excess oil, however it keeps your skins PH level so it’s not drying afterwards. I used this with my Clairsonic Mia brush with an acne prone head and my skin is extra clean and fresh. I’ve seen even more of a difference in my skin and will continue to use this. It totally works in harmony with my routine. If you end up trying let me know you thoughts and make sure you stalk allure for new goodies to try!
