How to Use
Rated 4.34 out of 5 stars
I am a 27 year old mother of 2 and I seriously thought that I'd never stop looking like a hormonal teen mom! I have been using this 3 step system on and off for 2 years. I'd always stop using because I'd switch to something new that was supposed to work better. Then I went the all natural route with essential oil blends and toners and bam. Back to this. Nothing ever took care of my deep as heck pores on my nose and tzone area, I'd get terrible cysts on my jawline and sometimes forehead that would take weeks to disappear and I have tried almost EVERY single brand out there. Anti agents i have found work best on my skin. Glycolic and aha /bha acids are my fav. LOL. But even when using exuvience, clarins, dermadoctor, and juice beauty - my pitted scars barely faded and I'd still get horrible break outs on my chin. Any storebrand, behind the counter, monthly subscription (neutrogena skinid, proactive, rodan and fields), I swear to you. You name it and I've probably given it a try!
This stuff is the bomb. Give it 14 days. 2 weeks and tell me you don't see a huge difference. You NEED a good moisturizer. The negative complaints are from individuals that need to learn how to balance their skin. I have been using clinique smart daytime lotion for the day and SKYN oxygen infusion cream at night. YES those are 2 pricey lotions but dang are they worth it if you've thrown away more money on useless products. They will easily last you 90 days. I use the spot treatment just as that.. a spot treatment. Sometimes Id put on my tzone when my pores were huge and black head filled. Again, make sure you moisturize!
Attached are photos that are a month apart. The left photo isnt even when my skin was at it's worse. I thought it looked good at the time I took it. I hate myself without makeup so I can't even believe I'm posting this on a PUBLIC WEBSITE. But the results are real. If you've ever cried over the pain you're in due to cystic acne, BUY THIS RIGHT MEOW.
So, this summer has been SUPER hard on my skin. I really liked this product at first. It did what it promised and I noticed my blemishes were greatly reduced in the first 3 days. But, after continuing with the product (as directed) I began to develop strange bumps that were jut under the surface of my skin. They would never come to a head and they just stayed. I decided to return the product because of the bumps. Also, I got super dry. To the point where my chin had a red dry patch that has taken about 2 weeks to clear up. Just didn't work for me.

I read EVERY oily/combination sensitive skin review I could possibly come across and was STILL nervous about purchasing this product until I finally bit the bullet and did it. I'm SO HAPPY I took a chance and now I'm hooked on this product line and can't decide what I want to try next. It wasn't by any means a fast acting product line for my sensitive skin that breaks out if you look at it the wrong way. YES, she's THAT TYPE and if I'm stressed about something, it's written ALL OVER my face, I don't have to say a word! As a matter of fact, she's itching right now because she KNOWS I'm talking about her and it's just sad. I digress. Okay, I'm back. I love the face wash because it feels like a cool cucumber and the toner feels clean and very refreshing as well. I know I'm probably over using them but I love these products and look forward to my skin care regimen throughout my day, and the best part is they have no smells! I use them in addition to The Ordinary's Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA, The Ordinary's AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution (twice a week, the AHA, BHA) and Cerave's Resurfacing Retinol Serum (every night) for now because I'm not going to waste my products and I was very eager to try La Roche Posay because of their reputation within the skin care industry. I developed Milia on my eyelid and was searching for ways to get rid of it when I happened upon this line of products. My skin has improved within the two week timeframe they stated it would, and that's a plus for me (no solution found to get rid of this Milia yet short of going to the dermatologist). I just ordered plenty more of their products so I'll follow their directions and hope to see good results just as I've obtained with these, if not better because I'll transition fully over to their entire line of products to see how they all work together. Right now my skin is glowing. Just a few more acne to get rid of and some hyperpigmentation.

This product is amazing
Zaman from Houston texas
I've bought this product about four months ago.. total life changer. Premenstrual breakouts are truly a thing of the past with this. If you are on the fence about buying this please please purchase it. You won't be disappointed. And the amount that comes in for this minimalist price is the BEST part. Love this company for staying down to earth about prices in the current economic situation. me and my skin are grateful!

I saw such great reviews that I thought it was going to work for me but it completely burned my skin 😭 i don't even know what to do at this point my skin has never been this bad
Sam from Cal
My face is normal to oily skin. Even still..my face started drying. So I switched with a heavier moisterizer and problem gone. Even though its a bit drying, if all I gotta do is up my moisterizer then its worth it because this stuff gets rid of those annoying tiny little bumps all over the face. Soo worth it. I get compliments on my skin now. Which is rare because I have huge pores, lines (I didnt use sunscreen as a teen now im 23) and all of that has seemingly either calmed down or gone away. Its amazing. I dont use this every night, just two-three times a week depending on how my skin feels, the other times just normal face wash. Been using this for 3 weeks now, love it and never going back.

I use this morning and at night before bed, these pictures are from July 9th and July 16th, 1 week apart and my skin changed dramatically. I have been trying to clear my skin up since I had my son last July and I finally found my holy grail! I was skeptical but knew Ulta has a great return policy so I figured why not, the worst thing is my skin just doesn't clear up. I'm so glad I tried this product, will definitely be purchasing the full size bottles!
Natalie from Pennsylvania
I'm so glad I bought this product. My skin barely breaks out but when it does, it's big red pimples everywhere. I bought this product to try something new - what I was using previously wasn't working. Not even 2 days later my red swollen acne had diminished. I also bought the matte moisturizer since I also have oily skin and it's wonderful. Not only has my acne diminished but my pasty black heads are slowly fading away on my nose and chin.

I bought this just 4 days ago and I can already see a difference. I have tried many different products in the past including proactive, clinique, and every drug store brand. None of these helped. I'm truly amazed at how well this has worked.

I love these products. I feel like this is more "travel size" though.

Presh from Chatsworth CA
I've been using it for almost two years now, it gives me a glow after finishing all the steps and helped me lighten my pimple marks from the past years. It really helps the skin to rejuvenate.
JH from South Dakota
This is the product I've been looking for since I was 13! I have been using nightly with a micellar water for makeup removal and night cream for a couple months now. Acne? Gone. Scars? Minimal. Price? Perfect. NOTHING I have ever tried has made my skin look this clear. I will be buying over and over and over again. (FYI - It is drying at first, but not so much so that it can't be treated with a moisturizer.)
Jess from Fresno ca
Works wonderfully for my skin
aisha from .
it works, but i have sensitive dry skin and because it has glycolic acid it made my skin really dry so i wouldn't recommend
Lex from Houston
I've been using this stuff since I was a teenager. Before that I tried EVERYTHING from proactive to prescribed creams and nothing really worked well at all. I have a lot of small bumps on my forehead and daily use of this stuff works wonders in controlling it. I notice the difference when I skip a day or two. I always get compliments on my skin and always recommend this brand. My skin isn't too sensitive either so I had no problems with the solutions.
Steph from Jackson
I have had acne and textured skin since I was a teen. This stuff has made my face so soft and clear. You have to buckle down though and actually use it morning and night for a couple weeks before you see dramatic results. I'll never switch to something else.
AngelG. from ATLANTA
I bought these products less than two weeks ago. My face has showed tremendous improvement.
houriaz from undisclosed
One of the best skincare I ever used. I used this product for years when I was a teenager. Recommend it.
hvneycomb from undisclosed
Doesn't feel harsh on my skin but I can tell its working. No feelings of dry skin or patches of dullness. The combination of cleanser, toner and spit treatment in the last 48 hours give me something good to think about...
MEW from USA
I've always struggled with a little acne here and there. Recently, I have started getting mild cystic acne on my cheek. I was hopeful because of all the reviews. The first few days, it worked wonders.. by day 4 or 5 my skin started peeling. I understand it's drying up, but I can't even use a cotton ball up to my cheek without it grabbing it. I have sensitive skin. This didn't do well for me. I switched back to my cerave acne wash & Clinique toner. It's already helped a little bit, but now I have to find a way to get my skin rehydrated. Hopeful it clears out of the system soon. Everyone's skin is different, but I would never recommend this product to anyone.

I'm loving this acne kit and what it has done for my oily/acne prone skin. The cleanser is great, lathers well and gives my face a squeaky clean feeling. The toner removes all the dirt and impurities left behind after using the cleanser. The acne spot treatment dries out my pimples and makes them less noticeable over time with consistent use. This 3-step treatment has made a world of difference to my skin and I love it.
