I've tried everything: Clinique's Anti-Acne line, any and all acne-clearing body scrubs, changing shampoos and conditioners, changing laundry soap and even homemade treatments but nothing seemed to clear the area. So, I went out on a limb and bought two new products: Proactiv's Deep Cleansing Wash and Murad's Clarifying Body Spray.
Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash
Skin feels tingly after use
A little goes a long way
Cleans skin really well
When used on arms, all little bumps disappear
Makes skin feel very soft
Dries sensitive skin (at least mine became dry)
Doesn't prevent new pimples from appearing
Cost - $40 CAD
I try not to hate proactiv lovers but I do, just a little. This line has NEVER worked for me. I tried the face products before and my skin was so dry that I looked as if I had a sunburn. Though the cleansing wash worked wonders on my arms, it did nothing to clear any of my bacne. I'll continue to use the product for me arms but will not be repurchasing it any time soon.
Murad Clarifying Body Spray
Easy-to-use spray container
Leaves skin feeling very tingly
Coats the back with little product
Doesn't dry my skin
Doesn't have an odour or odd smell
Cost - $37 per bottle
I've used Murad products before and have had amazing results so I was very eager to try this out. (I bought it at the Sephora VIB event over the weekend.) I have been using this twice a day (morning and night) since Friday and my back has COMPLETELY cleared. Honestly, I was crying this morning when I looked at how good my back looks. Never will I ever use anything else but this! I highly recommend this to anyone who is a sufferer of bacne.
Have any of you ladies tried this products before? What are your thoughts?
