I’m excited to be working with Neutrogena this week to share my experience with the new Acne Proofing product line. If you’ve been following me for a while, you will know Neutrogena is one of my favorite brands. Between the skin care products and the beauty products, I honestly think you can’t go wrong with them. So when I got the opportunity to try a few new products I jumped at the chance!
First, I want to tell you a little about my skin. I think that is always the most important factor when choosing skin care. I have combination skin which is drier in the winter and oilier in the summer. I’ve always used some type of acne cleanser because I am prone to breakouts (especially once a month.) But I’ve never bought a prescription for ance because I never thought it was bad enough. Just a few breakouts here or there that can sometimes make wearing makeup a little frustrating.
The products I tried are the Ance Proofing Gel Cleanser and The Ance Proofing Daily Scrub. Both products have a similar smell which was pleasant and reminded me of a shampoo (not a specific shampoo, just what you would like a shampoo would smell like.) Because I was using the two products in combination with each other I cannot tell you if one worked better than the other, just what the combination did for my skin.
I’ve been using both products every day now for over a week and I must say that I’m pleasantly surprised with how my skin looks. Within the first few days, I could already tell my skin was clearing up. I was a little worried that by using both products my skin would get irritated or dry out but I’ve been using both daily and I haven’t noticed any irritation at all.
As you can tell from the name of the products, both are designed to not only clear up breakouts but also helps to preserve skin’s natural defenses so it can be more acne resistant. I can’t remember if I’ve ever seen this claim before and I love the idea of protecting yourself from breakouts before they even happen. I have no way of knowing if these products are making my skin “acne proof.” But I will say I have noticed fewer breakouts since I started using them together and I will continue using it.
I really like both the products. The Acne Proofing Gel Cleanser is very gentle and smells nice. I like to use it after in the morning before my makeup (or just to start the day.) And in the evening to take off my makeup. It always leaves my skin soft and clean without feeling too tight.
For the Acne Proof Daily Scrub I don’t always wash my whole face with the scrub especially if I didn’t wear makeup I just like to concentrate on my problem areas( like chin and nose/t-zone.) I like using it after my cleanser for that extra protection. It’s been easy to add both to my daily routine and can’t wait to see how my skin looks a month from now! I feel like a superhero, and my super power is having acne proof skin!
