If you have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I tried Halo Beauty and didn’t have the same results or reaction to the supplement as everyone else did. While everyone else was having better skin as a result, mine revolted and which the complete opposite direction. Switching from being dry to oily with more break outs than ever before. I normally only got breakouts when a specific time of month happened, and since trying Halo it’s almost all of the time which I’m not a fan of. Previously those were gone in a day or two, so it was nothing I looked for products to combat. But now, that’s not the case, and I really hope things go back to how they were before.
Anyways, this led me down the path of trying to find a cruelty free acne treatment or skin care product that I could use to help make my face clearer. And I came across the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Acne Clearing Charcoal Cleanser at Ulta for $24. Since everything at the drugstore doesn’t really work for my skin, I thought I would give it a chance. Plus I liked that the product is allergy-tested, gluten-free, nut-free, oil-free, soy-free, suitable for sensitive skin (something that I also have), and nano-free.
Claims from First Aid Beauty:
This effective acne cleanser works to eliminate current and future acne breakouts. In addition to 2% Salicylic Acid, the cleanser contains Active Charcoal, a powerful absorbing agent that helps draw toxins out from below the skin’s surface. Bentonite and Kaolin Clays help absorb impurities, detoxify and purify pores. Yogurt Extract with Probiotics helps boost skin’s natural defenses against acne-causing bacteria. This cleanser leaves the complexion appearing clearer without stripping or drying out skin.
How to Use:
- Gently massage a thin layer over damp skin in the AM & PM, avoiding the eye area.
- Rinse thoroughly with warm water. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
Now I’ve never been great at following a skin care routine or doing it on a daily basis but I’ve been trying my hardest to at least use it multiple times a week. And I do have to say this product helps my skin out. And can see almost immediate or overnight improvement after using this cleanser. I’ve had white head acne that emerged on my chin during the middle of the day, then used this cleanser at night and by the next morning the white head is gone and it’s shrunk in size. So it for sure helps getting rid of the acne without drying out my skin. Which is a major plus, though right now anything dryer would be preferred compared to the oil. Not that oily skin is gross, it’s just not something I’m used to and have never had before. So it feels weird to me.
I have also noticed my skin overall has gotten better with less break outs since trying this cleanser, and I do need to increase my usage to see if that helps things clear up even faster. I just haven’t gotten to that point in my skin care, where I’m doing a routine both morning and/or night. I want to get there, but it’s a habit I just haven’t formed yet.
I’ll keep you guys posted on how things go probably in a skin care routine post. But I wanted to give you all a quick update on something I’ve been trying. What do you use for your skin? Or have found helps with getting rid of acne?
