For the last two months I have been dealing with what appears to be acne. I’ve never had acne, however, I get the occasional hormonal breakout but nothing that a quick application of my go-to pimple reducing solution and mask couldn’t fix.  This breakout has not been so easy to deal with and I am left experimenting to find a solution. Treating acne is different for everyone, so, something that works for your BFF might not work for you and vice versa.  It is also interesting that products with the same active anti-acne ingredient might work differently on your skin. In short, you have to play around with various products and ingredients to find the thing that is right to treat for your acne.  This is no easy task, with this in mind, I’d like to introduce you to Dr Lin Skincare and share some tips from the brand for treating acne using their products.

Dr. Lin Skincare features a 2-step Acne Clarifying system that uses a  proprietary blend of benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and natural active botanicals to provide continuously clear, beautiful skin.

Contains top acne fighting ingredients like 2% Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide. Step 1 includes washing with the Daily Cleanser, formulated with 2% Salicylic Acid to deep clean and purify clogged pores. Follow with the Step 2 Acne Lotion, packed with benzoyl peroxide to kill acne-causing bacteria. Shrink unexpected breakouts fast with the bonus Acne Spot Corrector. The entire system contains Arbutin, found in the bearberry tree plant to reduce inflammation and prevent and fade marks.

To take your acne fighting up a notch, show your skin some extra TLC with the Acne Cleansing Pads and Acne Cleansing Wipes for a gentle exfoliation that rids pores of blockage and helps remove makeup.  Best for use after cleansing, 2% Salicylic Acid penetrates deep, ridding the skin of impurities.   Skin will feel ultra-clean and the convenient packaging makes them perfect to take on-the-go!

It’s no surprise I am again writing about the bane of my skincare existence – acne.  But instead of just reviewing a product, I figured I would group my favorite, most effective acne fighting winners together in one post. From cleansers, to moisturizers and everything in between, these are my regular stand-bys for  acne treatment and the unending war on blemishes.

Cleansers

Boscia Makeup Breakup Cleansing OilThe first step in helping me reduce breakouts is an effective cleanser that removes all makeup, dirt and grime from my face. Cleansing oils are my recommended choice because they give the skin a nice and thorough deep clean, without stripping the face of necessary oils. Leaving a small amount of oil on the face is a good thing, and often using an oil based cleanser can help to balance out the skin. Boscia Cleansing oil is an all time favorite.  I often follow up a cleansing oil with a secondary cleanser aimed to help reduce bacteria or address breakouts.  Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is one I always keep around and use about 2-3 times/wk because it helps to exfoliate the skin and remove any build up from the skin’s surface.

Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil retails for $28.00 and is available at SephoraMario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser retails for $15.00 and is available at Ulta.

Toners

First Aid Beauty Blemish Control PadsA toner is the one step of many skincare routines that gets overlooked or skipped, but it is the one I feel can make the most difference.  Toners are designed to help balance the pH of the skin, prepare it for subsequent treatments and serums and remove any bacteria that may still be on the face. I recently came upon these First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads and think they are a wonder! Gentle enough to be used daily, I have found they help to reduce any breakouts I may be struggling with, soothe any irritation and prevent any future blemishes from making an unwanted appearance. I was a tad hesitant they would dry out my skin, but I am going strong after 30 days and my skin has never looked better! Now for those particularly evil times when I need to bring out the bigger guns (hormonal breakouts in particular), I substitute in my Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion a few times per week after cleansing and it does wonders to remedy any cystic or incredibly stubborn pimples that may be hanging around.

First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads retail for $30 and are available at Sephora. Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion retails for $15.00 and is available at Ulta.

Spot Treatments

Murad Acne Spot Fast FixI don’t know where I would be without spot treatments. My acne is not typically all over my entire face, but more regional, attacking the same areas over and over (and over and over). Targeting the specific area is always my first line of attack. This Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix is new to my acne treatment arsenal. The active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide and I like it for some of the stronger, cystic  pimples I get around my jawline. It does burn a tad when I first apply, but it does a great job at reducing the size and depth of the blemish within the first 2-3 days. Clinique’s Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel is another new discovery for me and has been a life saver. This one is formulated with salicylic acid, goes on as a clear gel and wears beautifully under makeup! Though it can be used over the entire face, I find it best used for me as a spot treatment.

Murad Acne Spot Fix retails for $16.00 and is available at Sephora. Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel retails for $17.00 and is available at Sephora.

Moisturizers/Treatments

murad-acne-clearing-solutionWhile my chin may be the number one spot for hormonal breakouts to set up shop, my forehead can be the place where I get smaller blemishes and often small little bumps. I use the Murad Acne Clearing Solution under my moisturizer  to help address my forehead shenanigans.  Formulated with retinol and salicylic acid, it does a great job at exfoliating the area and helping to clear up the area overall without causing irritation or dryness. Speaking of retinols, the REN Bio Retinoid Anti-Ageing Cream is my ultimate favorite, and while it is designed specifically to treat anti-aging concerns, I find that it is one of my holy grail products for helping me to keep my skin looking clear and blemish free.  The retinol in the cream helps to exfoliate the skin, which can make the skin appear brighter and more even, but for me it has helped to remove any congestion or dead skin build up that often clogs pores and leads to breakouts.

Murad Acne Clearing Solution retails for $39.00 and is available at Sephora. Ren Bio-Retinoid Anti-Ageing Cream retails for $65.00 and is available at Sephora.

Masks

Ren Invisible Pores Detox MaskNext to cleansing, masking is my favorite skincare activity. My pore clearing masks are obviously my most used, and this REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask quickly became a staple in my routine after just one use. I have tried many similar masks that seek to detox the skin, remove debris from the pores and heal acne, but this particular mask did all of those things while still leaving my skin feeling hydrated, soft and supple. I use it all over my entire face, whereas other similar masks I use just on the areas that are prone to breakouts. My Mario Badescu Drying Mask is one I have used for years and works best on the congested area rather than the entire face. It attacks the blemishes with a vengeance, but does leave the area a bit dry after (which I then follow up with the Herbal Hydrating Serum to help balance – it truly works wonders).

REN Invisible Pores Detox Mask retails for $34.00 and is available at Sephora. Mario Badescu Drying Mask retails for $18.00 and is available on Ulta.

Blemishes, ugh.   The bane of my oily-skinned existence.  Just when I finish treating one, another one pops up to take its place.  Delightful.  I am constantly on the hunt for products to help me deal with my breakouts without the harsh side effects such as dryness, flakiness and redness.  Sometimes my face ends up looking worse before it looks better!  Rock – me – hard place.  But throughout my trials and tribulations to help treat my acne, I have found a few products I love, so I was a hesitant to try something new.   Shocking, I know, since I am such a beauty product guinea pig.  No need to thank me, I’m very selfless.  I am happy to report that the results I got after using the new Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel were well worth the risk of trying a new product.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Review

The active ingredient in this formulation is salicylic acid, it helps to unclog pores and decongest skin.  The texture is a thin liquid-like gel that can be used up to twice per day on targeted areas or all over the face.  Since I only break out in certain areas, I have been spot treating with the gel rather than using on my entire face.  When first applied it, there was a slight tingling sensation which made me worry that it would dry out the area, but it went away within a few minutes.  Some other acne treatments bring the blemish to a head (gross but true), and while this can do that as well, for my specific cystic chin rudeness it cleared up the inflammation, reduced the size of my pimples and made it almost non-existent by the next morning.  *cue the angels singing*

As far as any redness or flakiness, it was minimal at most.  And the best part was it applies so thinly, that I was able to wear it under my makeup to keep treating that rude pimple all throughout the day.  In the past when I have tried wearing making with other acne creams or gels, my makeup would pull or pill around the area.  However, Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel (when applied very lightly) allowed my makeup to glide over it seamlessly. To add another successful acne treatment to my arsenal feels like I’m winning at everything.  Well, at least winning at clear skin.  If only Clinique made a product for the rest of my life.

Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel retails for $25.00 and is available at Sephora.comClinique.com and department stores.

Research shows that the number one face care concern among women ages 18 to 29 is pimples. Biore’s Acne Clearing Scrub is formulated to fight blemishes without disrupting the skin’s natural moisture system. The cleanser contains superfine alumina crystals, 1% Salicylic acid, along with a breakthrough technology featuring dirt seeking cleansing molecules that target and cling to impurities allowing them to be washed away.

Biore Acne Clearing Scrub

According to Biore’s skincare consulting dermatologist Dr. Sapna Westley, “many acne sufferers want to attack blemishes using harsh products that dry out pimples. But I always have a concern that these formulas may over dry the skin and be irritating and ultimately zap skin of its natural moisture, throwing it out balance leading to more breakouts.” One of the keys to getting and keeping acne under control is to use a cleanser that is effective enough to clean the skin without stripping the skin of its natural moisture.

Biore Acne Cleanser vs Competitors

When compared to other leading exfoliating cleansers, Biore’s cleansed in a uniform manner without damaging skin.  The paper above has a coating that is similar to the skin.  If you look at the Biore section of the paper, you’ll see uniform areas of exfoliation. Product 1 (Neutrogena) has exfoliating beads but didn’t do anything to exfoliate the skin.  Product 2 (St Ives Apricot scrub) exfoliated the skin but left deep gashes which simulate damage to the skin.

My Thoughts on Biore’s Acne Clearing Scrub 

Biore’s Acne Clearing Scrub contains menthol which left my skin feeling soothed.  The mandarin mint fragrance left  a refreshing, clean smell, which is great especially in the morning when I want to wake up. The alumina crystals were easy on skin and gave uniform, gentle exfoliation — I didn’t get a shocking sting when I used my toner.  While Biore promises “clearer, healthy skin in just two days,” I didn’t see any difference in pimple size or skin brightness until about a week.  I must note here that I only had a minor breakout on my chin at the time of product testing (praises to the Gods).

Where to Buy Biore’s Acne Clearing Scrub 

If you have acne, Biore Acne Clearing Scrub is definitely worth a try, at at under $7, why not? Also check out this post to see a complete Biore regimen that might work for you. Biore’s Acne Clearing Scrub can be found at select food stores, drug stores and mass merchants  nationwide.

Battling acne?

Please leave a comment and tell us what you are using to get it under control.

There are many myths surrounding acne, especially acne in adult women (Felicia chronicled her personal struggle here), so we thought we would share some content from Jasmina Aganovic to  separate myth from fact.  Jasmina is the creator of the all-natural, anti-aging skincare line, Stages of Beauty.

MYTH: Acne only appears on the skin of a teenager
Acne can be associated with aging just as much as it is associated with one’s teenage years.
o As we age, not only does our collagen and elastin start to decrease, but overall, the aging process also makes our skin less efficient at other things like regulating its level hydration and oil production both of which can greatly impact acne.

o One of the best examples of this is the rate of regeneration of the skin, which starts to slow as we enter our 30s.

o In our teens it takes our skin approximately 14 days to completely regenerate. That means we have new skin every 2 weeks! In our 30s, this time jumps up to over 30 days. This means that dead skin cells are sitting on the surface for longer, the body is less efficient at pushing healthier skin to the surface.

o The sluggish renewal of cells as we age increases the likely hood of clogging our pores. It also means that any hyperpigmentation from acne will take longer to fade.

o Women in their 30s need to focus more on exfoliation as a means to care for acne and heal acne marks than teens do.

FACT: Adult acne is on the rise for women in their 20s-50s

Over the last five years, the day-to-day lives of women in careers have become more hectic, leading to more stress and other poor lifestyle habits.
o As we age and become more involved in our careers, it’s natural to experience less exercise, unbalanced diets and more stress, which impacts the hormones in the body (and hormones have a profound effect on the skin; good & bad).

o Another factor contributing to acne in adult women being on the rise is that our air and environment is becoming more polluted, which leads to additional damage and clogging of the skin.

o The food that we eat also plays a role in the condition of our skin. There is a debate between the importance of organic meats and dairy. For example: More and more farmers are now supplementing their cows with hormones so that they produce more milk – one must then wonder what this actually does to the milk produced from these cows?

o Any traces of hormones in the milk that we ingest could certainly have an impact on the hormones in our own bodies and as a result have an effect on our skin. None of this is of course proven, but it is certainly something to be mindful of especially because we are seeing an increase in the occurrence of things like adult acne, earlier development and menstruation, etc. in women.

MYTH: Oily skin causes acne
If a person has acne, it doesn’t necessarily mean that their skin is too oily. In fact, lack of moisture can cause acne, too!
o It is not the oils or the skin that cause acne, but rather the inability of the body to expel the oils properly, causing build-up and clogging.

o A lack of moisture can also be a cause of acne. Again, it is not the amount of moisture that is produced, but the way that your skin handles its natural oils.

o Your skin should feel balanced and supple without any moisturizer. You’ll know that you need to add moisture to your skin if it feels dry or tight after cleansing.

FACT: The ingredients you use on your face should change as you age
As women age, they should be aware of the ingredients they are putting on their face and look for products that treat the skin concerns of people in their age group.
o In terms of ingredients to avoid, since our skin is more sensitive and less efficient as we age, it is necessary to be more careful with synthetic and heavy ingredients like petrochemicals and silicones, which can often clog the skin. In our teens our skin is more efficient, so clogging is less of a concern with ingredients like these.

o Women 30+ battling acne or problematic skin, should always incorporate exfoliation into their skincare regimen. The skin’s rate of regeneration is slower, leading to more clogging from dead skin cells alone – by helping take off the top layer of skin, you can really enable the skin to breathe a bit more.

o As women age, they should look for ingredients like AHA’s and BHA’s. Salicylic acid is among the most common.

GoClear is the newest acne treatment system to launch at Beauty Product Mecca aka Sephora. The GoClear regimen is a three step program that consists of a Clarifying Cleanser, Acne Treatment product, and Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF15.

As an adult woman who suffers from acne, I understand the importance of sharing new developments and treatments that may prove helpful in your own struggles with managing acne. When evaluating a new acne treatment system I generally advise a close observation of ingredients…..develop an understanding of ingredients that are beneficial for your skin. GoClear does not contain alcohol, propylene glycol, PABA, lanolin, artificial dye, or fragrance. This is good to know if the aforementioned typically irritate your skin.

In addition to acne management, GoClear is formulated to help address the hyperpigmentation that usually accompanies acne outbreaks. The center piece of the line, GoClear Intensive Acne Treatment, contains 2% Salicylic Acid along with other botanical and natural ingredients that help calm inflammation:

  • Clarifying Cleanser – botanical extracts, shea butter, green and white tea extracts, acai berry, ginseng, gentle exfoliating granules

  • Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 15 – Angelica extract, Avocado extract, green and white tea extracts, Vitamins E and C

The GoClear system is available ala carte ($25-$33 each) or as a three piece kit for $70. If you’re still in search of a complete acne management system, stop by your local Sephora and take a closer look at GoClear!

At one point in my skincare regime, I was a HUGE fan of Retin-A. It sent my adult acne bye-bye and I viewed the anti-aging benefits as icing on the cake. I was so hooked on the miracle topical treatment that I brought back a boat load from vacation in China (It’s super cheap in China!)


Over the last  year I’ve been on the fence with Retin-A. After a long streak of success, my skin slowly started to relapse and occasional zits began popping up. My Retin-A has been on the back burner for quite some time now. In my head, I secretly go back and forth thinking of ways to reintroduce Retin-A into my regime. I’m sorry but I want those anti-aging benefits, damn it! 

Everyone knows that Retinol is the ish. Retinol is proven to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve overall texture, and promote the renewal of skin cells. Retinol products tend to have fewer side effects than Retin-A (i.e. adverse reactions and extreme dryness). 


When I learned of Vitivia Pro Vitamin A15, I jumped at the opportunity to give it a try. Pro Vitamin A15 contains pure Vitamin A (Retinol) at .15%. The Vitivia representative who introduced me to the product said that her sister’s acne was so severe she was on Accutane. She switched from Accutane to Vitivia Pro Vitamin A15 and has had great success ever since. Seeing as my skin has recently decided to betray me and act a fool, I decided to give Vitivia a try.

Its been three weeks (night time usage) and Vitivia Pro Vitamin A15 gets two thumbs up from Ms ThisThatBeauty. Since starting Pro Vitamin A15 I have not experienced any new breakouts. When I started Pro Vitamin A15, I had one huge cyst like zit smack dab in the middle of two older cystic zits. The two older zits healed extremely dark and left behind gross unsightly blemishes (Thank God for Cinema Secrets 202-20). The newer cystic zit that was already formed and was treated with Pro Vitamin A15 healed much better than the two older zits. The newer zit is now completely healed and did not leave behind a dark blemish. 

WOW! This kind of result is a big deal for me. I have dark skin so my pimples tend to leave behind dark (almost black) spots that take FOREVER to fade. But with the help of  Vitivia Pro Vitamin A15, my pimple healed without leaving behind a dark little reminder. I’m hooked!


In just three weeks everything looks great. The one cystic pimple I had has healed beautifully without leaving a blemish. My skin did not purge when I started Pro Vitamin A15. I love the idea of a gentle Retinol product that tames my nasty adult acne while delivering powerful anti aging benefits. Its like Christmas in July…a girl can’t ask for much more! 

Vitivia’s Pro:Vitamin line combines pure concentrations of natural ingredients with the best of modern science. This formulation is then placed in individual biodegradable unit dose packaging insuring each application of Pro:Vitamin has never been exposed to light or air. As a result, the concentration of the first application is as pure and
stable as the last.

Vitivia’s topical Pro Vitamins offer pharmaceutical grade, pure concentrations, entirely free of chemical preservatives and fragrances in 100% biodegradeable capsules designed to maintain the purity and integrity of the vitamin concentration within.


I hear the Pro Vitamin C10 is amazing for hyper pigmentation…uh huh, yup…I’m all over it and will be reporting back soon! But in the mean time and in between time, Pro Vitamin A15 is ThisThatBeauty approved!

OK ladies (and my few random gents:)) it’s confession time.


I have adult acne. There! I’ve said it.

For the most part, my dermatologist approved routine has my nasty breakouts under control. But lately, maybe its stress or maybe its hormonal….who the heck knows??? But lately, I’ve been getting the most disgustingly painful deep under the skin cysts that drive me CRAZY!!!
These dastardly intruders come one by one and as soon as one fades, another appears. I haven’t been cystic acne free for months. These bad boys just keep cropping up. Personally I think its stress. My days and nights are filled with the stressful burden of contemplating life’s great obstacles like…

“What will I wear to Fashion Week”
“Which shows will I see”
“Will the DVF and Barbie show invitations EVER arrive”????

See! My days and nights are heavy with stress! Which keeps these darn glaciers steady popping up on my face.
But “painful acne cysts”, you have met your match. Please allow me to rain on acne’s parade and introduce you to:

This little bottle of acne cyst assassin has been a God send. I just started using it the day before yesterday on a terrible lower chin cyst and in a matter of 24 hours it began shrinking the intruder. My chin area started out red, swollen and tender to the touch. And now, after a little more than 24 hours of use, the cyst has reduced considerably and is drying up. This is a major improvement over my usual cyst healing time. It normally takes several weeks for a cyst to calm down and start to vanish. But with Renee Rouleau’s Anti Cyst Treatment, cysts begin to vanish and heal very quickly. I was hooked after just 24 hours. I’ve never had a cyst begin healing that quickly. I cant wait to see the Anti Cyst treatment in action at the onset of a fresh cyst in its infancy…which, given my current stress level, will likely be in a couple of days :(

In the meantime, yall give Renee Rouleau’s Anti Cyst Treatment a try.
Stay beautiful :)
