My holy grail acne fighting product

Hi my name is Chelsea & I have acne. I’ve spent the last two years with it actually. It’s the reason I got into skincare. I was looking for a way to get rid of it completely. So far, that has not happened. It has gotten much better, but it’s still there. Over the last two years, I have tried countless products that claim to banish acne. Most did nothing. A few helped a little. One became something I refuse to ever be without again.

Peter Thomas Roth’s AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel is my #1 acne fighting product. With 2 salicylic acid & 10% glycolic acid, this get clears up current acne & helps prevent any future acne from forming. When I’m being good about my skincare, I will use this a couple times a week where I usually get acne flare-ups, typically on my jawline. When I have active acne, I will use it as a spot treatment, sometimes reapplying 3-4 times a night before going to be.

I have been enjoying the Luxe Botanics Kigelia Clarifying Serum for daily use as I find something so incredibly soothing about it. This is not soothing at all. This is a workhorse. This is a fighter. I use this when I need to bring out the big guns.

Does it smell like rubbing alcohol? Yes. Would it probably burn like a mo-fo if you got this near your eyes? For sure. But is it the best fast acting acne fighter I’ve ever tried? Hell yes.

Truly, the reason that I love this so much is simple: it actually works. It stops acne in its tracks. Typically, when I get a break out, it will last for at least a week. At the first sight of a break out, I will apply the clearing gel and it will reduce the length of my acne breakout by at least half.


What is your favorite acne fight product?

  2. I’ve been trying out Peter Thomas Roth products to help with breakouts. I really hope they work. I’ve noticed that it really is the salicylic acid that works for me.
