Hit or Miss: AcneFree Clearing System

Once again, it’s Monday. So it’s time for another Hit or Miss. For this week’s post, you guys voted for a skincare product so let’s jump in, shall we?

I’ve seen this product in the drugstore for a while now so I decided to try it. It’s about $20 but I’ve seen it in some places for $15. It’s an acne system with a cleanser, toner, and lotion, and it’s supposed to work for 24 hours. So, pretty much a similar thing to Proactiv or Murad. However, it comes in 3 different types: sensitive, normal, severe. It all depends on your acne. My acne isn’t horrible. I only break up during that lovely time of the month. Also, my skin is pretty tough and it doesn’t react crazy to any products. Therefore, I bought the regular one.

Here’s what I think after 2 weeks of trying it. The cleanser and toner are alright but nothing special. However, the cream bothers the crap out of me. It feels gritty. I feels like there’s sand in it and I HATE it. I don’t know if it’s for exfoliation but I don’t like it. Also, I don’t like the smell too much but it’s not incredibly horrible.

But the point is … does it work? What I say is NO. I know that most people have used this product as a Proactiv dupe but don’t even bother. It doesn’t prevent future breakouts or do anything for your current pimples. Also, it has a tendency to dry out the skin. I find that crazy because we all know I have oily skin sooo I was definitely confused. I’ve put rubbing alcohol on my face plenty of times in the past (which I don’t recommend) and my skin was fine. However, this product was making some areas of my face dry. This product is definitely a MISS in my book.
