REVIEW: Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System*

by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan

 

*SENT FOR REVIEW by INFLUENSTER*

Acne is the most common skin problem many of us face everyday. I suffer from adult acne from time to time. I got rid of these suckers last year and my skin became flawless. But after settling here in USA, my skin acted up again and gradually it became worse. I tried drugstore acne products, i.e. face wash and toner for acne prone skin, but these work only for a couple of weeks. After that, same story!

I adjusted my diet, incorporated healthy lifestyle choices and made a skin care routine specially for acne. Mary Kay Clear Proof acne system was (and is) a big part of that routine. I am going to give all of you update on my skin condition and review on this acne system.

WHAT THE BRAND HAS TO SAY:

The Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System was exclusively developed to target acne’s top contributing factors: Clogged pores and Bacteria. This unique system, composed of products including effective levels of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, provides a serious solution to clear up acne.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY:

I was sent this by Influenster, but you can get it from MaryKay.com for $45.

PACKAGING:

This acne system products come in a box labeled “Mary Kay“. The box has all the product info written on top of it. I will get into details on the individual review.

The set contains:

1. Clarifying Cleansing Gel

2. Blemish Control Toner

3. Acne Treatment Gel

4. Oil-Free Moisturizer for Acne-Prone Skin

CLARIFYING CLEANSING GEL:

With 2% Salicylic Acid, the cleansing gel comes in a 4.5 oz plastic tube. This colorless, thick gel has a chemical-smell which I am not very fond of. But it’s a mild and effective cleanser.

BLEMISH CONTROL TONER:

The toner also contains 2% Salicylic Acid. The 5 fl oz plastic bottle will last you a long time as you will only need 3-4 drops on a cotton pad to cover your face or affected areas. It’s a colorless watery fluid with a mild chemical smell.

ACNE TREATMENT GEL:

This 1 oz tube with acne treatment gel is quite potent. The main ingredient of this product is 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, a topical disinfectant. You have to apply it on the affected area. I take a small amount on the place where I can feel an acne in emerging and after 2 days it’s gone completely!

OIL-FREE MOISTURIZER FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN:

This is a good oil-free moisturizer for daily use. It’s non-greasy and doesn’t clog pores. It comes in a 3 fl oz tube.

HOW DO I USE THE SYSTEM:

I do not use all 4 of these products at the same time. I use the Moisturizer in the morning after I clean my face with warm water. I use the cleanser and toner at night and follow with my regular night-time moisturizer. When I feel an acne forming or there’s an overnight pimple lurking in the morning, I use the Treatment gel on that spot, which generally dries up 1-2 days.

Now that my acne-episode is in control, I use this cleanser & moisturizer every other day and toner 2-3 times per week.

PROS:

1. Works effectively on acne.

2. Within $45, you are getting 4 full-sized products. So it’s a good deal.

CONS:

1. If  you use all 4 (or 3) products at a same time, it may cause too much dryness on your skin.

2. As the products contain alcohol derivatives, some irritation may occur.

IN A NUTSHELL:

This system worked really well on my skin. I am 97% acne-free now. Here are some pictures before using Mary Kay Clear Proof Acne System.

And here are pictures taken today to show my skin condition. I have only used the Oil-Free Moisturizer on my skin; no makeup no alteration, no filter.

Hi Arvin, if you look closely you will see the active breakouts are not present the “after” picture….also if you check out my recent articles you will see there is no breakout at all, and skin is completely healed.
