As anyone who has experienced acne knows, you try anything and everything you can to manage it. Creams, washes, spot treatments, dermatologists and so much more. Luckily for you, we came up with the ultimate list of best-reviewed acne products to save you the struggle of trying everything, which include cleansing brushes, kits, and facial cleansers. Although these products have been reviewed to work for many people, they may not work for you. Also please remember that no matter what your skin looks like, it does not lessen your beauty.
Clarisonic Cleansing Brush
Most people have likely at least heard of the brand clairsonic and the wonders it has done for many people’s skin. They promote the idea that by using a facial cleansing brush rather than just your hands to wash your face, you are reaching a deeper level of clean. Clarisonic continues to release new products to better adapt to each person’s individual skin by featuring different brush heads for different levels of skin sensitivity. They also keep evolving their brushes from the original Mia brush to the new smart brush with bluetooth connectivity and customizable routines. I have used the Mia 2 brush for over a year and it has been extremely effective in clearing my skin.
The Foreo Luna Cleansing Brush is new to the game and is starting to give Clarisonic a run for their money. A major highlight of the Foreo is that by being made out of silicone, it is hypoallergenic and doesn’t clog your pores or sensitize your skin. The Foreo brush also includes three different styles of cleansing, gentle, percision, and deep. The newest model is the Foreo Luna Mini 2 (shown below). The compact size makes it easier for travel needs.
Aztec Secret- Indian Healing Clay
This clay facial claims to be the world’s most powerful facial and according to most reviews, it lives up to it’s name. The single ingredient of this product, 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay, comes in a tube and then you mix it with water or apple cider vinegar to create the clay mask. The calcium bentonite clay is proven to a great ingredient for remove dirt and impurities from pores. This is the cheapest item on the list as a pound tub of it only costs around 1o dollars.
Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Kit
This kit by the popular brand, Dermalogica, includes a foaming wash, clearing booster, and hydrating lotion. The kit is reviewed to be extremely helpful for teenage acne as the whole kit works together to clear your skin. Dermalogica has been known for years for their products, including many that promote anti-aging, but the shift to skin-clearing products has led to a new market for teenage, acne sufferers.
Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam
This face wash includes the traditional acne fighting ingredients, salicylic acid and acetyl glucosamine, which help get rid of dead skin cells that can lead to clogged pores. By not including extreme harsh ingredients, it has been reviewed as not to drying and helpful for sensitive skin. This cleansing foam allows for simple easy cleansing without the need for additional products and tools.
Murad Acne Control Clarifying Cleanser
This facial cleanser also includes salicylic acid like the Clinique wash, but differently the Murad cleanser is a gel cleanser rather than a foam. By being a gel cleanser, it works quite well with the facial cleansing brushes or tools that I mentioned earlier. This cleanser contains encapsulated salicylic acid which release even hours after rinsing to provide acne medication. I have used this product with the Clarisonic Mia 2 brush and they work well together.
