So, as I've mentioned before, my face hasn't been agreeing with me lately, but I think I now have it under control *knock on wood* (x2) :)
Having said that the scars are still left on my face (nothing super major, basically red spots), and I wanted to purchase something that would help in the healing/fading time. As we all know if they aren't deep or pitted marks they will fade in time, some will stick around, but they look like freckles so not really a big deal. The issue was the length of time it takes for them go, and I wanted something fast and I wanted it now! *inhale, exhale*
I was looking at the Clean and Clear line, because it was the only creams beside my trusty Impruv cream (which has since been put back on rotation) that doesn't
Said that it did this...
"CLEAN & CLEAR® ADVANTAGE® Mark Treatment treats pimples fast while diminishing the appearance of post-acne marks. This breakthrough formula is infused with a special oil dissolving technology that allows for delivery of acne medication, Salicylic Acid, to fight breakouts. The unique formula with Glycolic Acid promotes gentle surface skin turnover, improves skin's clarity and diminishes the appearance of post-acne marks."
Well, it might very well do it, but how could I really tell? Why, you are all asking. It's because after you applied it to your face you let it dry (duh!) then apply your daily moisturizer right? Well could luck with that happening! Epic FAILURE. You cannot (or I could not) obviously apply cream before OR after this product is applied, all it does is start to peel off, in like chunks of white, almost like you've applied too much cream it starts to roll off, or if you have been exfoliating you body (come on you know what I'm talking out, those rolls of dead skin, gross, I know but now you get the gist). It doesn't matter, what type of cream (all creams I used were ones that I had been using for months), how much or how little you applied, how long you waited to apply it etc. It just didn't work.
Now I suppose you could just apply the Mark Treatment on its own, but then the rest of your face will suffer the dehydratedness, plus you have to put cream on in the morning, and at night your face needs cream so your skin absorbs it while you sleep!
So I don't know how this stuff is suppose to work, seeing as you can't wear it during the day, or at night.. oh and the creams were Clean and Clear as well, you'd think that across the same brand the products would work with one another.
So I have since put it away, never to touched again...what a waste of like 10 bucks.
Don't bother with it, the marks will fade in their own time, I promise :)
