Acne Free Products - Do They Really Work?
The Acne Free skin treatment system has been touted as the inexpensive and more effective version of Proactiv. This is a huge claim to make, due to the high success rate of people using the Proactiv system. While there are many other acne treatment systems on the market, Acne Free has made the boldest claims for its effectiveness. I am going to take a closer look at these claims, what it really does, and if it works.
To determine these results, I have scoured every user and product review available on the web and also bought the product myself for testing. The combination of both of these will provide a fairly unbiased sample of people to make an accurate judgement from. So read on to see what the hype is all about!
I have to state ahead of time that you will never see the results that are stated on the bottle unless you give it time to work. If you buy the AcneFree system, use the entire kit before you decide if it's the right product for you. Rome wasn't built in a day and acne won't go away overnight.
Acne Free's Claims
Acne Free received an independent study from Clinical Research Laboratories to prove that their product is "significantly better" than the Proactiv system. This claim is backed up on their website with actual testimonials from their customers. We all know that these "sponsored" style claims are all going to be positive, so they cannot be totally believed. Read on to see what the real reviews are like.
Awesome price for the one month supply.
Even better price for the three month supply!
The Acne Free System
The Acne Free product that I used was the 3-step Clear Skin System. In the box is a cleanser, toner, and lotion. None of the products smelled very good (to me), but they were very effective. The lotion is a bit grittier than the lotions and moisturizers that you are probably used to, but it eventually becomes natural. The toner is pretty harsh, and I imagine that it might be rough on sensitive skin.
For the kit, I paid a little less than $20, on sale at my local drug store. From my research, this price seems fairly standard, but Amazon always has it at an awesome price. As of this writing it is currently less than $14 (see box to the right), at that price I would buy a few of them!
Acne Free Reviews
There are two different camps when it comes to Acne Free; it works great, and it doesn't work at all. My own review falls into the first camp. I used it and loved it, but there's a catch, you have to use it! The reviews that touted its effectiveness are the people who stuck to the system and used it for more than a few days before giving up on it. The first week gives great results, then breakouts and dryness. In order to get the results that Acne Free claims, you must use this as a long-term treatment and overcome the initial frustrations.
As I'm sure you can expect, the negative reviews were mostly from people who did not stick to the twice a day system for more than a week. My skin cleared up very quickly, then I had a massive breakout, then my skin cleared up for good. Many people gave up after that first breakout. Have faith in the system and it will work for you!
Acne Free Results
My results from using the Acne Free system were consistent with the positive reviews stated above. I didn't have terrible acne, but breakouts were common. My main motive for buying this was to see if it lives up to the hype, and it did. The key to seeing good results of your own is to strictly follow the program. If you do not, you will not see long term results.
If you get a breakout after the first week, this is common with most reviewers and myself. Stick to the system to get past that and clear your skin for good.
If you do not follow the program, do not expect great results!!
Acne Free Warnings
Although this did not happen to me, some people reported a severe allergic reaction to the Acne Free system. The product gave their face a "chemical burn" and a trip to the doctor was necessary. The cleanser burned my face a little bit when I first started the treatment, but I attributed this to the chemicals doing their job under my skin. If you experience a burning sensation that you cannot tolerate, stop using it and see the doctor.
Also, the chemicals in Acne Free can stain your linens and towels after it has been rinsed off of your face. This is clearly stated on the packaging and perfectly normal. I planned for it to happen (it didn't) by switching to old pillow cases and towels to be safe.
The summary of Acne Free is simple. Follow the instructions, don't expect immediate results, and use the entire system for best results! Highly recommended!
