Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System

I am going to start out by saying that my skin is very oily and prone to breakouts.  I have been very conscious of the needs of my skin for the last couple of years and seldomly experience a breakout, but in the last few weeks I have been getting breakouts all over.  The breakouts along my jawline are actually quite deep and large and very, very painful.  I have enlisted the help of the Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System.  This regimen claims to have you seeing results in just 7 days.  I have been using it for 8, but you will have to wait til the end to know if it worked or not!

Mary Kay Clear Proof 4 Step System

The Clarifying Cleansing Gel is the first step in the system.  It deep cleanses skin to penetrate and clear pores, and it gently removes dirt, oil and complexion-dulling impurities. It cobtains 2% salicylic acid, which I learned a while back is my best friend.

The Blemish Control Toner is the second step.   It tones without overdrying, cleanses skin completely and helps control shine. Plus, it leaves skin feeling soft and supple. It also obtains 2% salicylic acid.

The Acne Treatment Gel is the 3rd Step in the system.   It helps clear up pimples fast while helping prevent new ones from forming. Plus, it helps fade the look of lingering acne spots. It contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, which I have found out over time, is my other best friend.

The Oil-free Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin is the 4th step.  It replenishes moisture to provide balanced hydration and helps control excess oil, leaving skin with a beautiful matte finish.

So now I tell you my experience with this system…  The first night I was using this system I kept thinking to myself that the scent was pretty overwhelming.  I know it is acne treatment and so did everyone else that was within a few feet of me, which coincidentally was my family and they don’t really care.  I continued the treatment and by day 3 I already noticed a big difference.  By day 5 my acne was dried up and no longer razed and extremely visible.  By the 7th day I had no traces or any acne what-so-ever!  So exciting.

I think that Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System (which can be found here) does exactly what it claims, but it also smells strongly of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide.  I am willing to risk that to clear my face!  The kind people over at Mary Kay are allowing me to give a set to one of my readers!  It is open internationally and be 18 years or older or have your parents permission to enter!

My oldest child is so much like me that it is sort of ridiculous.  He has never met a stranger, he can’t be quiet to save his life, and most of all he is so dramatic.  Sounds familiar, right?  My mini-me.  It sort of drives me crazy that everyone says he is a miniature of…
