      Don't use this on your face big mistake. My skin has never looked worse since I put this on my skin. Completely waste of my life. I can hardly believe it. It just doesn't even feel natural. Way too much chemicals.

          Ive only been using these products for about a week now. So far i am liking it. Unfortunately i do suffer from adult acne. I feel like this slowly is helping it, its definitely not over night results. It can be quite drying, so if u have dry or sensitive skin i wouldnt recommend using it everyday. I am hoping with continued use it will help clear up my acne even more.

                  I have been using it from last 3-4 days and do not see any difference. I had the other reviews where it worked like magic for them so I bought the kit and have applied all three (drying lotion, drying cream and buffering lotion) but nothing has worked so far. I am going to return it.

                      I never suffered from acne as a teenager but after I turned 30, I began to suffer from adult acne. I have tried multiple products to attempt to regain my skin's balance with no luck.
                      Some one suggested I try this and it was a godsend. The drying lotion is truly an overnight miracle potion. So glad I purchased

                          The Acne Repair Kit contains spot treatments for different types of breakouts. You can use our Drying Lotion as a spot treatment at night for whiteheads. Our Drying Cream can be used to spot treat red/inflamed breakouts or small clusters of acne. We recommend the Buffering Lotion for deep cystic acne breakouts overnight. Products in this kit do not target scarring or redness. To help reduce redness from breakouts our Healing & Soothing Mask can be used. You can also use our Vitamin C Serum every other evening to target discoloration from acne scarring.

                        So I've heard great things about this brand and I want to give it a try! But I'm not sure which kit would be the best to try out first. The Acne repair kit or the Acne starter kit. I've struggled with acne all through my teenage years and now I'm 21 and still can't seem to get a handle on my skin. I usually get breakouts around my cheeks, nose and forehead and have a lot of acne scars. I just want nice, healthy smooth skin! Any other products you'd recommend?

                          Hello and thank you for your question. Hopefully we can help you achieve clearer skin. The answer is both! The Acne Starter Kit is a daily regimen for acne prone skin that is intended to balance skin to help clear existing and prevent future breakouts. Sticking to a skin care regimen is the first step to clearer skin! Our Acne Repair Kit is a collection of spot treatments to target the different types of blemishes that pop up - Drying Lotion (whiteheads), Drying Cream (small cluster of small under the surface bumps), and Buffering Lotion (deep, cystic acne). Once you have your breakouts under control, you can consider adding in our Whitening Mask to address the skin discoloration. Also, you can add Glycolic Foaming Cleanser to your skin care routine 1-3 times a week to address both the discoloration and uneven skin texture.

                        I've been contemplating on purchasing this kit but the drying kind of scares me. I've had very dry skin when using AcneFree's kit. I'm currently using a Cetaphil moisturizer for extremely dry skin and Vaseline. I wear makeup almost daily and it's hard when my skin is dry and flaky. Do you recommend this product to me? Which moisturizer is recommendable for me ?

                        Hi,
                        I have acnes since I was 13 years old. Now I'm 19 years old going to be 20 in few months. I am so sad having this acnes around my face for almost half of my life. Currently, I'm trying to use the drying cream and drying mask from Mario Badescu. Fyi, I have a very sensitive skin and very oily too. Is the drying lotion and buffering lotion worth to try?
                        Thanks!

                      • Q:

                        I'm an 18 year old male who has suffered with acne for several years. I was taking antibiotics for my acne at 16, which helped, but I still have pretty bad break outs, occasionally cystic but also large clusters of bright red, angry whiteheads on my cheeks, forehead, chin, jawline, around my mouth, throat and nose. So basically my entire face. I definitely have combination skin, leaning more towards oily, but my skin gets dried out pretty easy. I would like to know if I should buy the Acne Starter Kit or the Acne Repair Kit? I'm currently not on any regimen, so I'm looking for a complete kit, as well as any extras I would need/is recommended. Thank you so much for the help!

                          Hello and thank you for your question. Hopefully we can help you achieve clearer skin. The answer is both! The Acne Starter Kit is a daily regimen for acne prone skin that is intended to balance skin to help clear existing and prevent future breakouts. Sticking to a skin care regimen is the first step to clearer skin! Our Acne Repair Kit is a collection of spot treatments to target the different types of blemishes that pop up - Drying Lotion (whiteheads), Drying Cream (small cluster of small under the surface bumps), and Buffering Lotion (deep, cystic acne).

                        Can I use the acne repair kit with the anti-aging kit? I am 36 years old and still suffer with acne on a regular basis. And also have fine lines and wrinkles. Lots of the acne skin care systems are too harsh and accelerate my wrinkles and skin aging. Hoping to find a system that can help with both.
