When I was a teenager, I just knew that my acne would clear up completely before I started my senior year of high school and I was right, to an extent. Senior year started and my skin was looking great; it was finally clearing up. Then on one crisp fall morning, I woke up to a major (and traumatic) breakout right before senior portraits. Since my acne-free by graduation plan didn’t work, I figured that by the time I finished college I would have clear skin. Needless to say that at this very moment nearly six months after graduation ceremonies, I am battling yet ANOTHER breakout.
I’m one of those people who have tried everything in the drug store and even high end brands to rid myself of this bothersome skin condition. Yet result have been temporary and partial at best, and few things act quickly to relieve the inflamation and itching that often accompany my acne. I’m always willing to try anything for my problem skin, so when my mom handed me a tube of Alba Botanica’s AcneDote, I was way to excited to give it a try.
AcneDote may be one of the best acne scrubs on the market. It contains fine granules that gently exfoliate to remove dead skin and act to lighten scars. It foams lightly as you add water, providing cooling relief to troubled skin. Within minutes, my skin no longer felt irritated. Rather, it was smoother and refreshed.
Here is the 411 on AcneDote:
Signature ingredient: Willow Bark Extract, a natural source of Salicylic Acid, helps treat and prevent acne.
Finely ground walnut shells slough away oil, dirt and dead skin cells to cleanse and help naturally fight blackheads.
Licorice and Lentil Extracts help neutralize acne-causing bacteria and combat shiny skin.
Organic Aloe helps soothe and calm irritated or inflamed skin.
Product description: Gentle but effective scrub helps skin appear clear throughout the day.* This powerfully natural, botanically effective foaming face and body scrub is tough on acne, but naturally gentle enough for daily facial cleansing.
Features and benefits: A gentle but effective scrub, with maximum strength 2% Salicylic Acid, Natural ACNEdote Face & Body Scrub treats and helps prevent acne breakouts even after you rinse. By scrubbing away prime acne perpetrators such as oil, dirt and pore-plugging dead skin cells, it helps banish breakouts for visibly clearer skin. In consumer testing, 80% said it helped keep their skin clear throughout the day.*
I will be checking back in with my progress on AcneDote in 30 days, but in the meantime I have high hopes for this wonderful product and I am positive that with continued use, I will reach my acne-free goal!
