For the past few months life has been utterly stressful. Between work, home, being a cheer mom, personal life and not being able to blog the way I have been wanting to; on a scale to 1-10 my stress level has been 100! With stress comes my number one enemy…acne and lots of it. Luckily Clearogen reached out to me at the perfect time, because every product I tried was not getting the job done.
I have super oily skin and all my life I have struggled with acne. I don’t break out as much as I did when I was younger, but when I do it’s pretty bad. Thankfully, Clearogen has been a total game changer.
Clearogen is basically a 3 step acne fighting system that you use once a day. Not only does this system help clear up unwanted acne, but it helps to actually keep acne away by treating the root cause of acne which is DHT.
“DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is a byproduct of testosterone, made within the skin of both men and women. DHT stimulates the oil glands to produce excessive oil, which leads to clogged pores and oily skin. This creates the perfect environment for bacteria to settle in and form the skin inflammation that we know as an acne breakout.” – www.clearogen.com
The ingredients in Clearogen help to:
- Reduce DHT production and prevent excess oil production.
- Block androgen receptors to minimize oil gland stimulation.
- Open the pores and eliminate the acne-causing bacteria.
- Soothe irritation and inflammation to allow the skin to rejuvenate itself. – www.clearogen.com
The Clearogen system includes the following 3 step products:
Step 1. Foaming Cleanser – Cleanses and balances skin for ideal moisture for all skin types; aids in the prevention and treatment of acne.
Step 2. Clarifying Toner – Eliminates pore blocking dirt and oil; assists in the prevention and treatment of acne.
Step 3. Acne Lotion – Clears current blemishes while moisturizing skin; helps prevent breakouts. This last step is the most important of them all.
Normally, other acne products I’ve tried in the past would leave my skin feeling very dry and tight. Now while some of them did help to clear my acne, they would cause my acne to excessively dry out and the skin on and around it would start peeling. Honestly, it was not a good look. No matter how much moisturizer I used it just would not help with the peeling.
After using this acne system for just a few days, I noticed a huge difference in the size reduction of my acne. The tiny acne I had around my jawline was basically gone by day two! Plus, it didn’t cause the acne to dry out and start peeling. My skin remained soft, moisturized and it actually helped to reduce the oiliness in my skin.
I’ll be honest with you, I did not expect this to be any different from the other acne products on the market. However, I’m really surprised at how well it works and a bit sad that I’ve run out of the cleanser and the toner. Luckily, I still have plenty of the acne lotion left. I will definitely be purchasing either a 2 month or 4 month supply soon. That way my two oldest can use it on their skin as well. One is a pre-teen and the other is a teenager who are both having some acne issues.
One other thing I want to emphasize on is that you only have to use this 3 step system once a day. Which is a great because you can still use your other daily skin care products. I like to use this at night, that way I can let the products do their job without clogging my pores up with makeup.
Tip: While this is great at removing makeup, I like to make sure that my skin is makeup free so that the ingredients don’t have anything in the way of getting the job done.
Are you prone to breakouts? If so, you should definitely give these products a shot. You can purchase a one-month supply here at Sephora for $$39.50 or you can purchase a two-month or more supply here directly from the Clearogen website.
