Description

Benefits

The Complete Acne Therapy System has the power to control acne while being gentle on your skin.

Using the two leading over-the-counter acne medicines, this powerful kit contains three acne skin care products clinically shown to significantly reduce many signs of acne in just four days, including breakouts, blackheads.

Cleanse: The Skin Polishing Acne Cleanser contains Salicylic Acid, that penetrates pores as it cleanses to clear oil and impurities. Meanwhile, glycolic acid polishes by helping to sweep away roughness and dead skin. Treats acne and helps prevent future breakouts for clearer, healthier-looking skin.

Day: The Oil-Free SPF 15 Lotion (as needed) is a unique combination of SPF 15 and DermaNaturals®, an exclusive botanical complex. This sunscreen for acne-prone skin helps protect skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays.

Night: The Acne Control Lotion contains Benzoyl Peroxide acne medicine, which kills acne-causing bacteria, treats inflamed breakouts and helps prevent future acne.

  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)

HOW TO USE

I would give 100 stars if possible. This is the holy grail in acne treatment, for me at least. I’ve been using it for 10 years. I have sensitive combination oily/dry skin, and stubborn cystic acne, as well as acne flare ups caused by hormones. Used on a daily basis, this product keeps my skin in check - clear, beautiful, and 90% plus of the time acne free. Effective in the prevention and treatment of acne. Gentle on the skin. Comes with an exfoliating cleanser with micro beads that you can feel scrubbing away oil, dirt, and dead skin. The cleanser leaves the skin clean and refreshed, primed and ready for the following acne control lotion which contains the ingredient salicylic acid, to target already existing acne and prevent future breakouts. The oil-free moisturizer with SPF locks in the acne control lotion without feeling too heavy on the skin. Acne prevention, treatment, and sun damage protection all in one! So highly recommended!

I totally recommend this. It worked for me. Mostly only minimized pimples and helped with breakouts. Did not completely rid me of acne. Was affective at reducing size of bumps. Room for improvement? I did not enjoy true face wash, but I did use it. Most results I think came from the spot treatment and sunscreen. Neutral smell.

I absolutely LOVE this product, though I began having trouble finding it locally. I consistently have trouble with acne on my chin and jawline. The main wash is okay, but the 2nd step is where it is at! It basically removes my blemishes over night. The moisturizer is light enough to where you don’t break out, but light enough to wear make up with. Definitely worth the purchase!

I have a moderate acne problem, nothing too serious, but still embarrassing enough on a man of my age that I feel a need to do whatever I can to get rid of it. My sister recommended using this acne therapy system on my face to get rid of my pimples, so I figured I would give it a shot and try it. I actually used it for a full months before making an informed decision about its success and I'll have to say, not the most successful.

I used these products religiously back in middle school. They did work temporarily on my skin but it would overall dry out my skin and cause flaking. For those not dealing with extreme acne and just small occasional bumps on the forehead and chin: this product is for you.

These three products work pretty well. They're kind of harsh on your skin at first but they really helped clear up my skin. I just don't like how you can't buy the products individually so if you run out of one you have to buy all three again.

If I could give this 10 stars I would!!!  I absolutely LOVE this face wash.  This whole kit is amazing.   I have been using it for years and it is the only thing that keeps my face clear.  With normal/dry skin I just have to make sure I use the moisturizer regularly.  I really hope that it saying discontinued is false.  I know as of now I am able to buy it.  However I have noticed less people carrying it.

I used this and saw a small difference, it comes with 3 items to use in a sequence but I didn't get that much of a wow result. It takes a while to actually see the magic, if you have a small acne problem then yes use it

The Neutrogena skin polishing acne cleanser leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed after I use it. It leaves my face looking clean, it exfoliates, and has helped maintain my skin giving it a healthy look. I don’t have a lot of acne but I have noticed a significantly smaller amount of breakouts than I had before using this product.

These product just didn’t do anything for me. I don’t know what it is but I just didn’t like anything about this product. It kinda smelled like chemicals and overall was not doing anything for me or my skin.

Does this really work? I've been using the acnefree system and haven't really noticed any results. I'm looking to switch to something new. I have mild to moderate acne
