When we think back to our teenage years, we can all agree that at some point and time, we all had to deal with acne. Over the years, new products such as Proactiv Solution, Clean & Clear and Neutrogena have advanced the fight against problem skin.
Of course as I have mentioned before I hate Clean and Clear and in my mind Proactiv is not a very clean product and finally Neutrogena, is good if you use their cleanest product.
According to Proactiv.com, the product “treats acne safely and effectively by attacking it at the source, where a build-up of dead skin cells and bacteria clogs your pores.” Their three-step system includes the Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner, and Repairing Lotion. If purchased from an infomercial, the trial offer includes the cleanser, toner and lotion, along with a Refining Mask, for emergency spot treatment. The trial offer of a 30-day supply costs $19.99. Afterward, the regular price of the three-step system is $39.95.
Clean & Clear offers different solutions according to skin type. The general treatment is the Clean & Clear Advantage. This product includes Acne Control Cleanser, Acne Control Moisturizer and Fast Clearing Spot Treatment. Unlike Proactiv, Clean & Clear can be purchased at your local drugstore for $18.99.
Neutrogena’s skiniD is a personalized acne solution. In order to individualize your treatment, first visit skinid.com for an evaluation. The evaluation is an extensive survey about your skin and lifestyle to determine what kind of medication is right for you. You can even choose the color of your free travel bag. Based on the answers to the survey you receive three unique products for $39.90
For those who prefer single items instead of the three-step system, Bliss is the place for you. Change Your Spots, is a fast acting spot treatment that “works overnight to diminish the appearance of blemishes and to dry up excess oil. [It] also, helps to lighten the hyperpigmented dark spots that are sometimes left on skin long after acne clears up” according to sephora.com. This product goes for $32 at Sephora stores.
There are a lot of different products for various skin types and budgets, but it is important to find the one that’s right for you.
