CLEAN & CLEAR® ADVANTAGE® Acne Control Kit

A powerful routine that clears skin fast and helps prevent future breakouts

The ADVANTAGE Acne Control Kit is a 3-step regimen that can help keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful. In a clinical study, 100% of people had clearer skin in as little as one day.

Step 1: Acne Control Cleanser penetrates to the pores with acne-fighting Benzoyl Peroxide and keeps fighting breakouts long after you've washed your face.

Step 2: Acne Control Moisturizer contains a breakthrough technology proven to dissolve oil fast, so serious acne medication can penetrate deep down to pores.

Step 3: Fast Clearing Spot Treatment shows results in as little as 8 hours. It clears up pimples and helps prevent new ones from forming.

Directions

ACNE CONTROL CLEANSER

Start with clean hands.

Use those clean hands to splash some H20 on your face.

Squeeze a small amount of cleanser onto wet palms – a pea-size should do it.

Gently massage the cleanser all over your face…swirl it around…circles, figure eights…that type of thing. Keep this up for 20-30 seconds, careful not to get any in your eyes.

Rinse thoroughly and pat skin dry with a towel.

Do this once a day for the first few days, then gradually increase up to 2 times a day if needed or recommended by your doctor.

But be smart. If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day, or even every other day.

If you’re heading outside, for goodness sake wear sunscreen.

ACNE CONTROL MOISTURIZER

Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.

So wash your face then apply a thin layer (think pea-size amount) over your face. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day.

If you’re heading outside, for goodness sake wear sunscreen.

I have had acne since I was an early teen and I have tried everything (including expensive perscription medications). When I was 25 my older sister gave me this kit because she knew that I was suffering from my skin problems. The moment i began using, i noticed a difference. Although I was skeptical that it would begin to stop working after a month or two (like many products), but here I am, at 32, still using this acne kit. It has been getting harder to find, and I'm not sure which products are the equivalent to this kit. I hope they never discontinue it because i fear that my now (noticably) flawless complexion will go back to teenage nightmare. As a side note, i also feel as if the nightly scne spot treatment is keeping my skin young as it helps in cycling of skin cells.

It helped for the first two months, but didn't as I continued using it over time. Once after washing the dark spot correcter off, I went outside and my skin was burnt for several days.

At first this kit reduced my acne but after a couple of days I got red swollen patches under both of my eyes and they have been there for days now and won't go. After a few days use the products burned my face when I used them and I have severely dry and flaky skin now which was an issue I never had before. Now whatever I use on my face burns and I have terribly dry skin. I was really optimistic about this kit after the first few days as I had a reduction in spots but the dryness of the skin is worse than the acne ever was, so unfortunately I wouldn't recommend.

I've been using the Advantage Acne Control Kit on and off for about 7 years now. I'm 25 and I still have random spurts of acne where NOTHING works and every single time I purchase this kit my acne clears up within a day or two. I will admit, it does dry my skin out a little so to offset that I'll work in an exfoliating face wash in the morning (I like the Morning Burst line) and just use the acne control cleanser at night (I also pair in their Persa-Gel at night too, I've heard that the Benzoyl Peroxide in both help to kill bacteria overnight). Seriously, I forgot what it was like to have clear skin and then remember this kit and how absolutely amazing it is! My only disclaimer is DO NOT go tanning or out in the sun for prolonged periods of time without using a high quality SPF or you WILL have very red, irritated skin! I made that mistake and walked around looking like a tomato for a few days, not so fun! Overall this is an excellent product that I would recommend to anyone that has tried everything else with no luck. If only there could be anti-aging benefits too! *Hint Hint!*
