AcneFree Products Review

A few months ago, I wrote about how much I loved my Eminence skin care products. After testing out the products for about three months, I have come to the sad conclusion that it is “too” natural for my oily/aceneic skin. When I am under a lot of stress or when it’s that time of the month, like many who share similar skin problems, I break out frequently and then I’m left with unpleasant scars. Although Eminence products maintain my skin clean and healthy, it doesn’t do the job for preventing new and horrible breakouts. Unfortunately, Eminence products alone do not work for my skin type, but I do believe it’s a great line that one can alternate with other acne treatments. Since the Eminence products were not doing the job for me, I had to resort to (and I hate to say it) chemicals. 

About four weeks ago, my skin was breaking out like crazy due to stress and I couldn’t take it anymore. I wanted a cheap and quick fix but I didn’t know which skin care line I wanted to buy next seeing I have tried many products (at drugstores, high-end stores, and dermatology offices/medi-spas) in the past. As always, I began researching various products online and listened to reviews on YouTube (3layerzdeep and ericaleigh777) until I came across the AcneFree Severe system. At first, I was somewhat hesitant because it reminded me a lot of the ProActive system, and the word “severe” made me wonder if this system would be appropriate for my skin. I also wasn't thrilled with the packaging and the bright orange bottles. Nevertheless, I went with my gut instinct after listening to great reviews, and bought the 24-Hour Severe Acne Clearing System ($29.99) at CVS, really hoping it would work.

The products in the system include the following:

Antibacterial Cleansing Wash ($7.49 ONLY sold online)
Corrective Toner ($7.49 ONLY sold online)
Maximum Strength Repair Lotion for AM ($8.95 ONLY sold online)
Retinol Renewal Complex for PM ($7.49 ONLY sold online)

Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you that I have been using the AcneFree Severe system for over a month now and I absolutely love it!!! I have seen a DRAMATIC difference and improvement in my skin. This system has prevented breakouts, cleared up my skin and lightened my scars. I have seen a few reviews where people have mentioned the system drying out their skin but I have not experienced extreme drying or scaling. I guess this shows I have resilient skin, or perhaps it takes a lot for my oily skin to experience dryness. So far I love the AcneFree Severe system, but I want to give it another month (just in case) before I call it my holy grail. I’m really surprised this product hasn’t received more hype.

Anyhow, if you have my skin type and have used many products, stop wasting your money on expensive acne products and buy AcneFree! I truly believe that this product is a great match for oily and acne prone skin (of course, don’t forget to test it first since every skin reacts differently to products).

Good luck to you and I really hope the AcneFree Severe Acne Clearing System works for you. If you decide to purchase this system, please let me know what you think. I would love to hear about your experience.
