Go Clear 3 Step Acne and Blemish Regimen- reader reviewed
I've been trying out the Go Clear 3 Step Acne and Blemish Regimen for about 3 months now. I have quite sensitive skin, breaking out mainly in the same areas- seems to come in cycles. Stress also seems to be a trigger. I guess you could say I have combination skin, but in the winter it's more on the dry side all over. I was mainly looking for the products to keep things under control w/out irritating and drying out my skin.
Clarifying Cleanser AM/PM-
Pros: Gentle, easy to use, neutral smell, seems to do a good job of cleaning and getting the skin prepped for the topical.
Cons: A minor con- would be nice to have it in a container like the Sunscreen.
Intensive Acne Treatment-
Pros: Gentle, non-irritating or drying, invisible, nice smell.
Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 15
Pros: This was my favorite of the three. I'd have to say this is the best moisturizer I've used on my face. The "matte finish" is exactly that- nothing oily about it.
Cons: IMO it could do w/out the SPF/sun-screening ingredients. I guess they could be argued to be safe, but for me it's something I don't really need, at least not in the winter.
Overall I really liked the products. They seem to have done a little better job at keeping things under control, and w/out the irritation and drying out of the skin- as they claim. I had some very stressful periods (I'm a guy..so not THAT kind of period) where I don't know if anything would have prevented the breakouts. (Feel free to prove me wrong about stress causing such breakouts. If you can do that..maybe it's all in my head and they'll go away!)
I would like to thank Truth in Aging and Go Clear for allowing me to try the products out. And thanks for their patience in waiting for the review, as I was preoccupied with a friends' health issues!
