So, it’s been now over two weeks and these are the fab 5 that have helped my skin SO much from all my “facemask-acne”. Yes, it’s taken a little while, but I am happy that my breakouts are almost completely gone (except for a very stubborn one near my mouth). Please note: I do NOT recommend any of these products for anyone with sensitive skin, except for the face spray!! Ok, let’s go product by product now: NEOSTRATA - Foaming Glycolic Wash I LOVE this face wash! Everything from the super soft foam texture, the small amount you need, and the barely there scent is great about it. The 4 and not 5 stars?? If you overuse it (like I have 🤦🏻‍♀️) it’ll dry out your skin a bit. So, careful !! MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater This little spray is everything to me. The main reason: it does NOT have any alcohol in it and therefore doesn’t dry my skin out. I like to use it as a “toner” in between my wash/treatments/moisturizer, but when I need a bit of hydration through the day, I just do a couple of sprays 😊 Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment Ok, first things first: the one thing I CANNOT stand about this product is the smell 😩😩😩 It’s super strong and definitely not pleasant. However, when it comes to its effectiveness, I must say it’s great. My skin does feel clean, like I’ve taken away a thin layer of extra whatever was there (sorry lol, it’s hard to explain). It burns a bit on my breakouts, but it has helped reduce them too. Once again, another product NOT to be overdone, it’s a strong formula that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which can be damaging to the skin when not used properly. PLEASE use at night only, and REMEMBER to use SPF during the day as well as minimum sun exposure for the sake of your skin staying healthy and getting the most benefit out of AHA’s!! NEOSTRATA - Acne Clarifying Solution This solution right here is bomb! Yes, I said it. Has to be the best acne solution I’ve ever used. It does work great for my skin. I only dab a saturated cotton pad where I need it (breakouts mostly and oily parts of my face). It burns my breakouts, yes, I literally DO feel the burn lol, which it also means it’s working, right? 🤔 It’s also helped with my redness and the breakout bumps minimize noticeably! And last, but not least MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion Yes, another cult fave that I HAD to try myself lol. I think it’s effective and it does a good work by drying out breakouts (or anything that’s a pustule or such). My only complaint is that it takes a while to see the results. Maybe I was expecting it to be one of those “overnight miracle” products, but it just isn’t. It’s also recommended to be applied and left overnight, which I did, but in the morning my ugly little bumps were still there, just in the slow process of going away...

Can This Replace a Paula’s Choice Cult Favorite?
Can This Replace a Paula’s Choice Cult Favorite?
I live in Canada and getting Paula’s Choice shipped in seems like a luxury in this Covid economy. So I was looking for something that could replace Paula’s Choice 2% Salicylic Exfoliating Solution (FYI the black bottle and the blue extra strength acne solution are the exact same product) I had some points and this Neostrata Acne Solution was 20% off making it free for me. It has the same 2% Salicylic Acid as well as 7% AHA. I do struggle with never ending spots (I’m 37! When does this end!?) so I thought this would be the perfect exfoliation and anti aging combo. Whoa man!!! The first time I tried it, it legit took off my nail polish! This stuff is strong! Stings going on, and has a very pungent polish remover smell. I was floored by the overall intensity of it. That being said- if it works well I can over look those things. I’ve only had it a week so too early to give a solid review on its effectiveness, I’ll have to check back in with that. I still have a bit of my PC so alternating for now. So far, so good. No bad reaction and I do think it is having a positive effect, time will tell. Take Care Beauties 💖

Hi there, the first two pictures are images of my acne from January 2020 (after doing my skincare routine) and the other photos are from October 2020 (before doing any skincare in the morning) and showcase my skin in direct sunlight and just in a normal light setting. My skin has gotten much better since January due to the products I have been using, however, I am looking for cheaper alternatives for the current products I am using because I don’t think I will be able to keep purchasing them (all together I believe they are around $200). As you can see, my skin back in January was dry and had acne (what type I am still uncertain) and now I have less acne (although I still get pustules and large red bumps frequently all over my face - this is just a time where it has lessened) but my skin appears to be very oily and shiny and red. If any of you have any recommendations I would be very welcome to them! I have sensitive skin, which used to be combination as well, although I am not sure if I now have oily skin. Here are the products I currently use morning and night (in this order): NEOSTRATA - Mandelic Clarifying Cleanser NEOSTRATA - Acne Clarifying Solution reversa - Hydra-Minéral Concentrate VICHY - Aqualia Thermal Water Gel Face Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid SEPHORA COLLECTION - Brightening Eye Cream – Hydrate & Depuff I also use a foreo with my cleanser

My face after a bit over a week
My face after a bit over a week
So, this is what I’m looking like after using all of these products RELIGIOUSLY, DAY and NIGHT (as per their own directions respectively). I honestly don’t know what else to do. My horrid facemask-breakouts have definitely improved, yes, but after a bit over a week I would expect them to be completely gone! Sadly, there’s still bits of them here and there, still visible AND some even painful 😥😪😭😩 Especially the one on the left side of my mouth keeps going and coming back. Some of the products I feel have helped me, but I guess not all of them are as effective...
