As many of you know, I suffer from mild acne and cystic acne as well as hyper-pigmentation. I remember the first day I got a pimple, I was in 4th grade going on a field trip. I was living back in Florida (I lived in Connecticut for four years) and I had NO idea what to do! I was super young so did what any young girl would do, I wore a zip up sweater and put the top of it over my chin…for the entire field trip. Needless to say, in 90 degree Miami weather, people were asking me questions. I just kept saying I was cold… but, really, I was trying to hide that disgusting intruder on my chin.
Fastforward ten years, I still suffer from cystic acne and hyper-pigmentation. While I’ve definitely had my moments of embarrassment, as the acne chooses to get worse days before a big event or presentation, I’ve been able to find some great products that really help zap my problems (aka pimples) away.
A few weeks ago, I took the Solve My Acne quiz with Neutrogena. It starts out by asking you about your skin type, breakouts, problem areas, and so much more. After you answer the questions on this short quiz, Neutrogena will come up with an acne routine made just for you!
I’m going to explain a little bit about the products I got and what I think of them:
Acne Stress Control Power-Cream Wash: I didn’t really like anything with too many scents, because I get sick sometimes from strong scents, so this cleanser is perfect. It fights breakouts before they even happen and is a smooth lather that is easy to apply and wash off. It really makes your skin feel silky smooth, afterwards, too!
Oil-Free Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin: This is the best! I can’t use any moisturizer with oils in it, since I have oily skin. This one is the perfect amount of moisture without adding any shine to your face. It’s also fragrance-free, which is best for sensitive skin like mine.
Rapid Clear Treatment Pads: I used to use these so much during the primetime for my breakouts! I used to just rub the pad over my problem areas and then just let it dry and apply moisturizer. I do the same thing today and it still works wonders! What I also love is that it can double up as a makeup remover.
Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes: These have always been my go-to for removing any eye makeup. The towelettes are soft and aren’t harsh on your eyes/face and will remove any dirt from your face without harming your skin. These are the best!
Neutrogena has always been my source for clear and healthy skin without breaking the bank. But it’s always been tough to find a regimen specific for my skin type. Well, now you can! Head over and take the Solve My Acne Quiz to see what Neutrogena products will work best for your skin type. Because, let’s be honest, none of us want any of those pimples or marks on our faces!
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you can find the perfect everyday acne routine! 🙂
