My Cure is My Poison!


I've found Acne products stop working after a while. Often the effectiveness just fades, but sometimes it starts having negative effects...like for me this week. I look like Freddie Kruger!

I used the Clinique Acne Solutions range for about 18 months and been very happy with the results...until now! This week I started having an allergic reaction to the products. My face is swollen and red so I've stopped using it. I'm now on the hunt for a new cure....

I know exactly how you feel. I have been through that so many times with acne washes and cleansers! I use Spectro Jel Cleanser for Problem Skin, it seems to be working for me. It has a sensitive formula, it's free of alcohol, soap, and scents

Did you check to see if your clinique stuff is hypo-allergenic and has any alcohol in it?

Hi Candykiss. Yes it is hypo-allergenic and contains alcohol. :(

If alcohol is one of the first 3 or 4 ingredients in a cleanser/scrub/moisturizer, I don't buy it, since alcohol can irritate my skin.

Good to know. :)
