    Works Very Well

    By Sammi

    from CA

    Comments about University Medical Acne Free Clear Skin Treatments:

    To start, i have oily skin right now and have horrible acne right now. I used Proactiv in high school to keep my skin clear. I never had bad acne, just the occasional breakout, which Proactiv cleared easily. I feel Proactiv is too expensive to keep buying so I stopped. Just within this past year my skin broke out in horrible cystic acne which became so bad it hurt to touch my face or wash my face. I bought this product because it was cheap and I heard a lot about it on tv and youtube. On a scale of 1-10 my acne was about an 8. I've been using this product for about a week now and my acne is about a 6. I'm very happy with the results. It's not a miracle product, don't get me wrong, but it sure has cleared up a lot of my acne from deep inside my pores, my face doesn't hurt to touch, and my skin just looks so much better. I recommend this product, along with a clay mask ( I use the freeman chocolate and strawberry clay mask which I bought at the same time as the AcneFree product and have been using for the same amount of time. It works amazing and smells amazing!! ) I hope this helped someone!

    Comments about University Medical Acne Free Clear Skin Treatments:

    Acne Free and Clear is the only product I've found that works this well for this price. The claims on the box are true. My skin tends to dry out so I only use the product once per day but get great results. One of the warnings on the box is that the creams might bleech fabric; they do so I apply in the morning to avoid discoloration on my pillow cases. I also have a designated white towel to dry my face after step one and to wipe my hands.

    Comments about University Medical Acne Free Clear Skin Treatments:

    RE Contact University Medical to remove the alcohol from the rening Toner

    I'm a huge advocate of the Proactiv Original System. The skincare has always left my skin blemish free for as long as I've used it. Given my experience with skincare, benzoyl peroxide in a low dosage is the only product which seems to work for me long-term.
    The Proactiv "gentle", salicylic acid based system proved ineffective for my skin. I should note that with the Original system, I have found it necessary to apply a hydrating cream such as Cetaphil moisturizing cream after cleansing and prior to application of toner in order to offset the potentially dehydrating effects of the toner. I'd found that when I had applied the toner to dry skin right after cleansing, my skin would wind up dehydrated. This is the case even if I only use the system once per day in the evening. If I apply the system 2x day I have found that my skin gets especially dehydrated and flaky where makeup application would become a problem.
    As the years passed, I started to get interested in trying out skincare with anti-aging benefits. I'd always have the concern in the back of my mind that the products could contribute to breakouts or not keep my skin clear, but I've tried nevertheless.
    Derm Exclusive seemed to be neutral. I didn't notice any unusual or timely breakouts from use of the product line, but Kardashian's Perfect Skin cleanser always seemed to cause pimples on my skin anytime I've used it. I'm contributing it to their cleanser, although I suppose it could be the toner as well as this product was used some of the time when the cleanser had been used, but breakouts occurred even when their toner was not used.
    I ran out of Proactiv and had run out of the Derm Exclusive cleanser so I had decided to try the Perfect Skin cleanser again, but much to my dismay, instant pimples the follwoing morning!! Ugh. I therefore decided to purchase both University Medical Original Acne-Free System and the Sensitive Skin as an immediate measure since these are available at local pharmacies. I am considering applying the Original in the evening and the Sensitive formula during the AM, but I'm very much concerned about the amount of ALCOHOL that's in the Renewing Toner of the Original System. Alcohol is listed twice and is known to strip the skin of it's natural lipids and pH balance. When you strip the skin you can cause the skin to fall out of balance where it overproduces oil to compensate for stripping it's natural lipids. This can lead to more breakouts once you moisturize in order to offset the dryness and dehydration. Alcohol also dries the skin and emphasizes fine lines. I'm also concerned that stripping the skin with alcohol would not only lead to dehydration, flaking and possible emphasis of fine lines since hydration and propr balance is especially key to mature skin. My skin is not oily by any means, it tends to be combination or sensitive/acne-prone in that the wrong ingredients (mineral oil, lanolin, excess oils, inferior ingredients) will make me break out, cause redness, chapping, dehydration and flaking.
    I've noticed that Proactiv uses glycolic acid in it's toner. Their toner was excellent for my skin. It would make it appear more clear, bright and even-toned. Some even consider glycolic acid an anti-aging ingredient, because it brightens dull skin and aids in gentle exfoliation while keeping the pores free of debris. The choice of alcohol as a replacement for the glycolic acid would explain the price differential as alcohol is a cheap ingredient, but it's also an inferior ingredient. I'm going into these details hoping that one of the representatives of University Medical will read this review and consider forwarding the comment to their Research & Development (R&D) Dept. and consider an alcohol-free reformulation of the toner in the Original 3 pc. System
    If you are experiencing dehydration, dryness, tightness, or flakiness of the skin, please consider sending University Medical Customer Service an email via their website explaining your side effects and expressing a desire in an alcohol-free based toner which has an well-received and regarded acid as an ingredient to replace it. Acids such as salicylic, glycolic, AHA, fruit acids, etc.. have all been shown to help to clear pores, increase cell turnover and exfoliation, and have anti-aging benefits. Alcohol is a cheap ingredient known to strip and dehyudrate the skin.
    I will keep you posted on whether the University Medical products are effective as they've just been purchased. I will provide benefit of the doubt for now and provide a 3-4 star rating pending followup.

    I'd appreciate any feedback you may have regarding using the kits on adult skin that doesn't have bad breakouts, because the skin is managed in a way to keep it clear. The morning following application of Perfect Skin cleanser, my skin had tiny pimples on the cheeks and a hive type of blemish on my chin. Use of Proactiv original system (low dosages of benzoyl peroxide) seems to keep my skin clear. I'm hoping that University Medical will do the same, but I'll have to consider how to properly offset the alcohol in the Renewing Toner. I'm awaiting a reply from the UM CS dept. as I'd emailed them via their website.

      I bought a promo kit that came with the lotion, toner, cleanser and an electric brush. I like the brush but the cleanser and toner dried my skin out and the lotion did absolutely nothing for hydrating my skin.

      Comments about University Medical Acne Free Clear Skin Treatments:

      I have been using proactiv for over a year, but got sick of paying tons of money for it. I was skeptical to try an off brand, but so far I think it works better! It's definitely more drying than proactiv so you need a good moisturizer to go along with it, but other than that, it has cleared up my skin a ton! It has also cut back the oilyness quite a bit too. I have only been using it for 2 weeks, but so far I like it. The first few days I almost quit using it though due to it bringing out every pimple on my face! I stuck with it though, and by the 4th day or so I started to notice a difference. So stay with it and you'll love it!

            Acne Free Cleanser, Toner, and Repairing Lotion are the only products that I will use to wash my face with. The repairing lotion doesn't dry the skin out like some acne lotions. People are always complementing me on my skin, so Acne Free definitely works.
