Update: Project Clear Skin 8.26.09

Success!

Thankfully after I ditched the awful Mario Badescu moisturizer and started on my clear skin regimen i have successfully won the battle AND the War. Small word to the wise, never ever use Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer. Don't give in to the temptation, unless you want deep cystic acne.

Anyway, using within one week of using my trusty tools,my clarisonic, cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer every morning and night my skin has completely cleared. My skin has not only cleared but it is supple, moisturized and glowing. I will never veer off this path again...or so I say until I MUST try something else. Simple skin care always wins.

I am going to do a more in depth review later on this week on the above products, especially the Clarisonic, which I love love love.


What are your tried and true methods?

  1. hey there - congrats on the recovery! : D

    I recently also had a similar experience - my tried and tested is Eve Lom Cleanser. I veered away in an experiment to try Ren's similar balm cleanser and broke out!

    It's true what they say about 'If it ain't broke, no need to fix it'.

  3. I completely agree with you on simple skincare...as tempting as trying something new sounds, it's just not worth it!

  7. I used to have moderate acne. Here's what worked for me:

    Clarisonic with my Philiosphy purity cleanser, witch hazel toner, benzoyl peroxide, estee lauder advance night repair (i used it am & pm), moisturizer (korres yogurt).
