Mary Kay Clear Proof

Your skin can be your best friend or your worst enemy. If you take care of your skin, then you really don't have to worry about clogged pores and acne. I seem to have more acne now then I have have in my life. Usually it is just a zit or two here or there and then nothing for months. I got accepted into the Influenster program, to try our Mary Kay Clear Proof. I was so excited, because I thought that this would be the answer to my acne problems. I had heard some things, that I will get to later on in this post, but I wasn't going to let those things sway my decision in any way on whether I liked these products, and if they really work.

The bottles are pretty plain but cute. I found it weird that someone needed  four or five different products in a row to get rid of a few zits, but hey who was I to judge the products or the company..yet.  I started out the first day with two zits. They weren't too bad, well they are all bad, but they weren't in a in your face sort of area. I used all the products just as the instructions clearly say to do. I had hoped there would be a big set of instructions of use, but the only instructions in site were the ones on the back of the bottles. So if you try this set out, make sure you read the back of the bottles before opening them up.

Here is my before picture. You can see that I have some acne around my mouth area. I drool at night and I think that may be what is causing this but I am not sure, also my dirty hands and my hubby's dirt hands are often close to my mouth.




After using this product for a good two weeks, I have to say that I was not really impressed with the results, shown here:


As you can tell, the same zits can be seen below my bottom lip and below my nose, with new acne added on. I haven't had this much acne at one time since I was a teenager, and even then I don't know that I can say it was ever this bad.

I had no real change except for these products added more acne to my face. Which goes along with what I had heard before I ever tried it. I talked to and read posts of many women that said "If you don't have acne really bad, and especially if you have no acne at all, do NOT use this product line. It will cause you to have acne if you have none and your small amount of acne will get worse if you use this product line."

The products smelled ok, they were easy to understand and use. But I have to admit that I would never buy these products. I am happy for the people that used them and they actually worked for them, but they did not work for me. Like I always say though, everyone has a different skin type so what works for me may not work for others and vice versa. Just make sure you check around, look at other reviews and really listen to what others are saying about this product line, good and bad.


I received this product for free from Influenster in exchange for my honest opinion.
