Bye-bye acne, thanks to French drugstore brand!
Darphin is a French brand that specializes in skincare made from botanical ingredients and essential oils. I got this balm last year when I traveled in Paris. It’s a highly-potent, fast-absorbing balm to fight the look of redness and acne, while instantly increasing brightness, radiance, and luminosity. I am a skincare junkie so I am very strict on what I apply to my skin. This has great ingredients and helped clear my acne as well as help prevent breakouts from happening. A lot of products tend to tingle and burn on my skin but this one did not give me that horrible sensation. Love it over all !
Best acne spot treatment on the market!
Kate Somerville - EradiKate Acne Treatment Kate Somerville’s Eradikate acne spot treatment is the most potent and effective spot treatment on the market, in my opinion. This beauty features 10% sulfur, BHAs to unclog pores, and zinc oxide. This treatment really ZAPS acne spots immediately and improves the redness and overall appearance of the pimple. This treatment is typically meant to be used over night, but can be used during the day as well. Eradikate is meant for any skin type that is struggling with congestion and acne spots. I have had the same bottle for over a year now, have used it countless times, and it still isn’t completely empty! I love the packaging design and texture of this treatment. The packaging is a simple glass bottle, but there is a layer of alcohol on top of the actual product, which keeps sanitation in tact. To use, you are to dip a cotton swab down through the alcohol layer, sanitizing the swab, and down into the pink drying solution. On the Q Tip it feels like a wet clay texture, that you smooth onto the pimple or congested area, and then it quickly dries down. I love that this spot treatment is super effective, but also stays put overnight and doesn’t flake off all over the place. In the morning, my acne spots are either dried out completely, or significantly diminished in size. I can’t rave about this product enough! Eradikate is sold for 26 USD per the 1oz bottle. Since I very frequently use this treatment, and the bottle has lasted me a year, I would say the price point is great! This product will last a long time even with daily use. I do want to add that I find this potent and effective, but it is gentle on my inflamed skin and never leaves a congested area more angry than it was. I highly recommend this product!

My Canadian acne lifesaver!
My story: After I went off birth control I seriously didn’t have a week without a pimple. While this might not seem like a big deal, my pimples almost always leave scars, even if I leave them untouched (and I must say, that takes a lot of will power). I was seriously at a loss when I finally found this product. I had given up dairy, I was drinking less alcohol, I trying to eat essentially less of everything except fruits and vegetables because I was desperate to fix my skin. I tried salicylic acid products, niacinamide products, pimple patches... a lot of money and a lot of different products. I was so crushed. I hated taking pictures, I was so self conscious and I wore wayy more makeup than I usually do to cover 1) the pimples and 2) the scars. My confidence had hit a new low. THEN I was watching a YouTube video by a Canadian blogger named Allegra Shaw and saw that she had had the same issues with acne after going off birth control. She mentioned that this product was one of the only things that helped. So I rushed to Shoppers Drug Mart and bought one immediately. I opted for the face wash over the gel because I heard the gel is drying and honestly I know benzoyl peroxide might not be the best thing for the skin, so I figure quickly washing your face with it and rinsing it off is the lesser of two evils. This is one of the only products where I noticed a difference right away. I immediately stopped having acne and I haven’t had a pimple since. NOT ONE in over two months which used to seem so impossible to me. This and my Then I Met You toner have seriously changed my skin and kept my acne at bay. And the best past is that this face wash is less than $10. I try to use this just once a day in the evenings after I take off my makeup. If I ever feel like I’m at risk of a flare up (say during my time of the month) I’ll let this stay on my skin for about a minute before washing it off. Otherwise, I just gently apply to my skin and rinse it off right away. Worth it? If you’re desperate, 100%. I seriously always have two backups of this in my cupboard. I will never not have this on me. I know it might not be the best products for your skin because it can be harsh, but I just always make sure it rinse it off well and use a good moisturizer afterwards. I can’t describe to you how much more confident I have become since purchasing this and I finally feel like I can go makeup free. And now I just need to find a way to get rid of the pesky acne scars...

DIFFERIN-Acne Treatment Gel
long story short...I had acne. Looking back it wasn’t the worst thing ever, but at the time it made me feel like the ugliest human on planet earth. I would come home everyday and wash my face thinking that having makeup on for a shorter amount of time would help, and then I would cry. I would go sit in front of my heater so that my face got all red from the heat that it made it harder for me to see my pimples, I would make concoctions in my bathroom trying to find something that would help and stayed up all night researching skin products and cleansers to help...sound familiar? That was my life for about a year. Finally after spending so much money on random products I thought would help me I came across la rochey posay acne kit and picked it up at my local Walgreens. Let’s just say I saw INSTANT results. The first couple of weeks my face was dry beyond belief but with the help of a little moisturizer it was nothing I couldn’t handle. After a month I was only left with scars that faded over time and now..nothing. This is my personal story but I must say that anytime anyone asks me what I do to get such clear skin I send them to go get the acne kit and they almost always love it as much as me !LA ROCHE-POSAY - EFFACLAR ACNE TREATMENT SYSTEM

An acne spot treatment, that TRULY works
I am just now starting to experiment with CBD and skincare. These Truly's CBD Acne Patches combine Salicylic Acid and CBD. They treat skin with the classic acne-fighting ingredient, but also reduce post inflammation and speed up healing. There’s 36 patches and cost somewhere around $13 making them UBER affordable. I’ve always sworn by tea tree oil as a spot treatment but recently got a super wicked chemical burn so I sought out an alternative, and I’m honestly amazed at how these work. I get deep set pimples that never make their way to the surface but they hurt, and I end up picking at them until they become a problem. I put one of these on before bed and by time the morning came the redness and swelling was gone. I would recommend these. My only advice is be careful when removing from the sheet. The leaves will want to curl under each other making them impossible to use 🖤
TRULY-Blemish Treatment Acne Patches
If you have acne prone/ sensitive skin stay away from this product. It’s very harsh. It left me with a burning feeling after and now I have small burn marks on my cheeks and pimples forming #Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment Mini & Mighty Kit[products]#[OneStar]
