Step 1:

  • You have to start somewhere. And awesome clean skin starts with Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser.
  • Plus, clean hands, of course.
  • Use those clean hands to splash water on your face.
  • Squeeze a small amount of cleanser onto wet palms – a dime-size should do it.
  • Work into a rich lather. Place the now foamy cleanser onto your face and use your fingertips to gently swirl it around…circles, figure eights…that type of thing.
  • Avoid your eyeballs, but feel free to clean your neck.
  • Rinse thoroughly then pat dry with a towel.
  • You're now ready to move on to step 2: Essentials Deep Cleaning Toner.
  • Your pores are going to love you!

Step 2:

  • The second most important step in cleaning your skin is to go after any dirt left hiding in your pores.
  • And here's how you do it:
  • Soak a cotton ball or pad with some astringent and wipe it over your face.
  • The T-Zone area is where oil usually hangs out, so give that a good once-over.
  • Because this product can dry out your skin take it slow and use just once a day.
  • If all goes well, gradually increase to 2-3 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.

Step 3:

  • After you've cleaned your face and your pores, you're ready for the finishing touch.
  • What moisturizer? This moisturizer has an acne-fighting medicine in it, so go easy.
  • Apply a thin layer over the affected area. Do this once a day for the first few days, then gradually increase to 2-3 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.
  • But be smart. If you’re skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day, or even every other day.

I only use the level 2 astringent out of the set. I use it during that time of the month and it gets rid of pimples pretty quickly. It does dry skin out pretty bad though if you use it religiously.

I tend to have really clear skin, but as everyone does, I get
the occasional breakout of a couple pimples. They tend to be around my nose or
on my chin.  I soaked a cotton pad with the astringent and put
it on my problem spots. Overnight, my pimples were already shrinking!

Used for a few weeks, made me have a horrible break out. It all smells very chemically. I was disappointed with the results. I have sensitive skin and just don’t think this product worked.

Absolutely amazing. I was struggling to find a product to get rid of my acne. Step one does a deep clean, step two treats the acne with an astringent, and step three moisturized your face without irritating it.
