ThermaClearHere’s your chance to win a free ThermaClear, the zit zapping tool that has been getting rave reviews, and retails for $150 at Sephora. Therative, the makers of ThermaClear asked me if I wanted to test out a ThermaClear, but now that I don’t really get acne anymore, I thought a better choice would be to allow one of my readers to win this tool instead!

The ThermaClear works on mild to moderate inflammatory acne, usually characterized by red pimples or bumps. ThermaClear is not intended for use on blackheads, whiteheads, or cystic acne. The device works by sending heat to the source of the pimple, and it can make the pimple go away up to four times faster. I personally have not tested the ThermaClear, but have read a lot of good reviews about it, and a lot of my fellow beauty bloggers swear by their ThermaClear.

Win a ThermaClear from Savvy Skin!
The contest starts today and ends Friday, April 18th. To enter, just write a comment to this post telling us your worst pimple story, and include your name and email address (which will not be visible to viewers). As you know, my worst pimple story includes having acne all through high school, and then suffering from it for several years in my late 20s! My persistent acne is what caused me to make a whole website devoted to skin care! The ThermaClear winner will be chosen at random, and will be notified by email after April 18th.

edit: please note that the contest is now closed and the winner has received their ThermaClear.

    My worse time was on my 30th birthday, my friends and SO were going all out for a big catered birthday party with all of my friends and family. I decided to treat myself to a day at the spa, since that was such a big day. I had never had a facial before, and it sounds so luxurious. However, I walked out of there with *3* of the biggest whiteheads on my forehead and nose. I wanted to be the pretty princess for the party, but felt like I was the ugly stepsister walking out of the spa. I didn’t the baaad thing and popped them and semi covered them, and I was still the belle of the ball, it was just the disappointment from the facial. It spooked me enough, it was 6 years before I had another spa facial.

    In high school I had acne on my face & back.
    At 45 I still get it on my face.

    My worst acne story is taking place right now, at 33 years of age! I was never one that dealt with too much acne drama as a teen; it didn’t really hit me until my late ’20s when my skin suddenly became super sensitive. In the past year I thought I found a wonder product that would clear up bumps before they became too big. At the same time, I started dealing with hives – something I had never expereinced before. I figured it went hand in hand with my newly-sensitive skin. Went to doctors, who said it was stress. Well the hives caused more stress and the stress caused more breakouts so I used more acne medication. Eventually my hives got so bad I ended up missing work, no antihistimine seemed to help and I was miserable and embarassed. I cut out spicy foods, tomatoes, cheese and other dairy from my diet trying to rid myself of these welts. I cut out many beauty products thinking they caused the reaction and even changed jobs to a less stressful field.

    Just this week I realized it was the acne medication that was causing them. Gosh darn salycitic acid! I stopped using it and within three days, the hives that have plagued me for almost a year completely disappeared! Problem is, now I have those darn breakouts. Now that I know my trigger ingredients for sensitivity AND hives, it seems that I have almost no topical creams that can be used to effectively keep acne at bay. I would LOVE to try a tool like this, but a bit out of my price range right now. Would be so cool if I won so I am not the 33-yearl old professional with the pizza face!

    I am still breaking out on my chin area (I have tried everything)…and my wedding is coming up this October. I would love to win this so that I don’t have a horror story about breaking out on my wedding day. :) Thanks for the great contest. Oops, I posted my comment on the wrong post 1st. :)

  5. Sonia Says:

    My worst acne incident was when I was 16. At that time I rarely got acne on my face but I occasionally got acne on my body. I was taking ballet during this time and was always wearing the required pink tights and black leotard. Well, one day while changing after dance class I looked down and realized I had a massive zit on my upper inner thigh. It was clearly visible through my pink tights and I kept thinking that the puss would pop and soak my tights….ewwwww how could I have not noticed this sooner? The zit was the size of a dime! Having never had a zit like that before I was completely lost as to what to do but I knew I wanted it gone ASAP. So that night I attempted minor surgery on my mega-zit. I tried using a hot cloth to gently pop it but no luck. So…out came the tweezers. I squeezed the zit with my hands and it hurt like @#$#@. Who knew that having zits on your inner thigh would be so painful! It popped, eureka! Now came the tricky removal of all the puss with the tweezers; I thought the puss would never end! It took forever for the popped zit to heal and it looked like I’d caused a gaping wound on my leg from inept shaving. The good news is that I never got a nasty zit like that on my leg again. The bad news is that once I hit my late 20’s I started getting nasty zits on my face. How unfair–just when I start worrying about wrinkles I now have to worry about monstrous zits on my face as well!
    I’ve been fighting a losing battle with the zits on my face every since my late 20’s and I’m desperately seeking a better solution than benzol peroxide. I’d LOVE to try Thermaclear and see if is able to do the impossible and win the war against my zits.

  6. Bunny Says:

    Urgghhh….I hate pimples! The worst case I had was when I went on an island holiday and wore sunscreen lotion on my face. I guess my skin was sensitive to the lotion because when I returned home, I had a terrible outbreak! Nasty stuff! :(

  7. LeaneG Says:

    Well, unfortunately, acne is a part of my everyday life. I have too many horror stories to even remember. I have had acne since jr. high and I still do at 29 years old. My mother still has problems with her skin and she is in her 50s now. Needless to say, I get my bad skin from her. I try to keep control with OTC treatments and I have found a good degree of success with DERMALOGICA skin care products, but still I do not have full control over my own face. I usually get a bad breakout at the worst time and most of the time I have pimples on my face somewhere. I would LUV to try ThermaClear! I have heard good things about it and I want to finally be the winner in my fight against my pimples.

  8. Heather Says:

    I’m in the middle of a separation. My face tells the tale. Thought my adult acne was due to stress and I’m sure some of it is, but realized yesterday that the bare minerals that I thought were sooo good were making my skin soo much worse. I happened upon your website. Thank you for all of your insight. Ever thought about being a derm? You certainly seem to have a passion ,and your care for people is obvious.Thanks for sharing your personal journey and valuable insight with all of us so that we may learn as well from your experiences. Thanks for the chance to win this gadget. Take care..

  9. Biljana Says:

    My worst pimple story is the fact that I am 24 and I’ve had consistent acne since the age of 12. NOt a year has gone by where I havn’t had a face full of acne. I’ve tried Proactive, all sorts of natrual remedies, and everything at the drug store. Nothing works. This new product seems really promising and I would love to give it a try.

    Thanks ;)

  10. GIna Says:

    sooo i’m getting married this year and i just had my engagement last September. Unfortuanately, I had only discovered savvy skin shortly thereafter… and on my engagement, my face loooked terrible :-( it was all swollen and i had 2 big zits on my chin. It was terrible. Although I now seem to have it under control now courtesy of differin gel and changing my eating habits, I still get the weekly breakout… I need to get this undercontrol so what happened at my engagement ceremony doesn’t happen again at my wedding!!!

  11. Casey Mallard Says:

    My worst pimple moment was when I was interviewing for colleges. I noticed a HUGE zit right before my interview and I wanted to pop it but I didn’t have time to do that and get ready so I just covered it with a bunch of makeup. Well the concealer I used only made it worse and when I was car, I accidentally popped the damn thing and it started to bleed. (sorry for the vivid images!) I cleaned up as best as I could but noticed after the interview was over that it had started to bleed again. So I had a bloody mark on my face for the entire time!

  12. Michele Says:

    I used to pick, pick, pick in high school – and then be shocked at the bleeding scab that looked worse than the pimple…..slow learner!

  13. Lilly L Says:

    I had mild acne all as a teenager. I thought I had grown out of it and moved on to happier things. I recently got married and little red bumps are back. It wouldn’t be so bad except for the fact that my husband thinks it would be great if I didn’t wear make-up. Not likely! To make matters worse, he never says anything bad about my skin (because that would encourage me to wear more make-up), but he likes to reach out and gently poke my offending zits. Big confindence booster. :) I’d love to get rid of my offending spots.

  14. My Inner French Girl Says:

    My worst would have to the time I used Obagi. Ugh ugh ugh. Oh, and UGH.

    My acne isn’t really all that bad anymore, but of course even the tiniest zit can look like Krakatoa about to erupt when it’s on YOUR face. So I hopped on over to my derm’s medi-spa. The aesthetician recommended the Obagi line, which required the promise of my first born child. Not really, but it’s definitely more than I’ve ever spent on any skincare product in my entire life. Probably combined.

    It’s a multi-step process that includes a cleanser, exfoliant, a hydroquinone product, a retinoid product (usually Retin-A and therefore requires a doctor’s prescription), and a few others I can no longer remember. Anyway, I was told that my skin will take a bit of time getting accustomed to it, but…damn. Within 2 days, my face was beet red all the time and was peeling like crazy. It looked like a horrible sunburn decided to camp out on my poor facial skin and cling for dear life. The zits were nothing compared to that. I immediately ceased using the Obagi collection, but my skin took about a week to come back to normal. No makeup could hide the crustiness, so I had to endure the stares of coworkers and customers at work. Not. Fun.

    Never again!

  15. Sophie Says:

    My worst pimple experience would have to be during highschool. It hurt that a crush of mine would identify me as “the girl with the pimples,”, My self esteem plumetted and I’ve never felt more insecure. Once, before my best bud’s debut ball, I was hurriedly trying to cure acne that I applied tons of Panoxyl on the left side of my face only to experience extreme burning – yes, my skin got burned and I cried because my skin was in horrible condition a day before my best bud’s debutante ball and we were going to speak during the occasion – it was miraculously covered by MAC foundation, but the burn just stayed on forever. I’ve been battling acne since my teenage years up to now. It’s just sad – I want it to stop somehow.

  16. Sam Cawthon Says:

    back in high school, i had the never-ending zit. it started out as a small red dot right smack center in the middle of my chin. of course being an immature high schooler, i decided to try and pop it. worst mistake ever. it grew into the size of a dime in the middle of my chin!!! AND IT LASTED FOR 2 WHOLE MONTHS. it would not go away, no matter what i did. my friends and i even came up with a name for it..and to this day they will never let me forget about the “MONSTER” of 2004.

  17. Kathleen Says:

    My worst pimple experience would have to have been in high school when I had cystic acne. My friends thought I was hitting my face somehow because the cysts looked like bruises. Ugh. I still have to deal with acne, but at least I don’t get many cysts.

  18. jeannie Says:

    When I was in junior high I got this huge pimple above my lip. I was so embarrassed by it and decided to “cover” it up by whooshing my hair across my face everywhere I went. Too bad I ended up bringing MORE attention to myself! =/

  19. Sofia Says:

    Last year, when I was really stressed from work, I got three huge pimples right next to each other on my left cheek. VERY conspicuous, considering that the rest of my face was blemish-free. I made the mistake of trying to pop them, and they became a huge red mass on my cheek. Lasted for over a month, ugh.

  20. Suu-Eun Says:

    Let’s see… When I was in high school, I would be so depressed whenever my acne flared up. I had tried everything I could to tame it, but with no avail. I remember in 10th grade waking up one morning, looking in the mirror, and bursting into tears. I spent an hour begging my mom to let me stay home. She eventually agreed, but I spent the rest of the day locked in my room thinking of what I would do when tomorrow came. I am now a college student and get the occasional breakout. Whenever that happens, I feel a sharp pang in my heart. “Not again!”

  21. Elizabeth Says:

    I had a pimple on my chest, about an inch above where a modest v-neck ends. Of course, I decided to play amateur dermatologist and operated on it. I somehow thought hydrogen peroxide would help and wound up with an open wound *and* a slight chemical burn. Now, one year later, I have a eraser-sized flat white scar about an inch above where a modest v-neck ends. A pimple would have been temporary but this is here forever.

  22. Lydia Says:

    I think my worst acne story is that even though I’m not a teenager anymore I still get acne on my body and it sucks. Its always bright red and most of the time I can’t wear anything sleeveless. I have tried everything. Proavtive gets the acne off my face but not my body. :(

  23. Rachel Trahan Says:

    My worst acne story is the day to day problems..
    My acne is so embarassing, I am in school to be a chef and one of my classmates actually used to joke behind my back that my zits might pop in the food!! I know, gross and that wouldn’t happen, but in college people can be terribly cruel. I have gotten made fun of my whole life an you would think at my age the jokes would stop. I have tried everything but prescription medicine, and my face still breaks out constantly, I look like I am in high school not 26! Everyone always thinks I am my three year olds big sister.. I would love to have Thermaclear so that I might be able to help my face clear and gain some sense of self esteem before I graduate with horrid zits…

  24. Scarlett Says:

    My worst experience has been over the last few years. I am 34, and had decent skin as a teen. But now as an adult, it is terrible! Cystic acne on my back, and monthly breakouts on my face. They only heal as the next month’s batch is cropping up. :(

    I’d love to try the ThermaClear!!!

  25. Ro Says:

    I’d like to enter for my 15 year old son. He’s at that tender age where acne really hurts self-esteem and he’s tried many different methods to get rid of pimples to no avail. Thanks so much for the contest — wow!

    Ro

  26. Katy Morris Says:

    When I was about eleve years old, my cousin once told me that to get rid of acne, models put toothpaste on their blemishes…and they’re gone overnight.

    That night I put my hot pink (children’s) toothpaste (a good dose) on all of my bumps. The next morning I woke up, washed my face, anticpating a miracle. When I looked in the mirror I saw several large zits surrounded by bright pink circles. I scrubbed and scrubbed and the pink wouldn’t go away…and scrubbing so much made a mess out of my pimples and the rest of my face!!!

    I had to go to school like that for a couple of days!!! Even with makeup, I still looked like I had chicken pox on my face! Too funny!!! And sad!!!!!

  27. Jess Says:

    Hrm, worst story ever? I guess it could be some odd combo of the following.

    I got my first noticeable pimple-zit when I was in fourth grade. Of course, all of us being 8 and 9, no one else in my grade had one, so I got some lovely “zomg what is that!” remarks. My mom eventually popped it.

    In middle school, I had one of those massive-throbbing-needs its own zip code sorts of zits. I couldn’t keep my hands off of it, so it ended up bursting and leaking everywhere in class. :(

  28. Shefali Says:

    Ahhh, acne. I started getting NASTY cystic acne in my mid-20’s. I got them all over my cheeks, and they left really bad scars no matter what I did to prevent them from developing and growing. I finally got rid of the problem when I turned 30. But wait!! I went for 2 years without any breakouts and thought, Holy Cow! I’m done with acne. WRONG. Guess what popped up on my face TWO DAYS BEFORE MY WEDDING? Two cystic acne spots smack in the middle of my cheek. Since they take 3 weeks to disappear, I ended up having them as visitors on my wedding day. They eventually went away, but I turned 35 last year and guess what? I have acne issues again :(

  29. Jamie Says:

    My worst acne story happened just last week when I got a horrid oozing pimple on my face and my husband started chasing me around the house trying to pop it! Needless to say, he didn’t succeed, but our two children got a huge kick out of it and actually turned off the TV set to help me try to hide from him!

  30. Joan Says:

    its hypocritical for me to say.. “oh well who cares about looks anyway….its only skin deep”

    I’ve had persistent and scarring acne since I was thirteen years old ( I am now 19)…and to make matters worse.. I’m surrounded by all my flawlessly perfect skinned friends..I think i’ve tried about just EVERY product known to man..and nothing has helped tamed ..those evil culprit aka whiteheads..last year, I saw an ad on this Medspa..and somehow was lured into going ( the ad was very persuading!) so..off I went to a medspa and they reassured me that I came to the right place and yadayada ” my dreams of having nice skin would finally come true crappity crap”..In the end, all I got in return was wasted time ( it was very far and heck the treatments were painful!) Also, I spent a fortune on nothing..literally thousands of dollars on “miracle products” and acne laser treatments,because NO my dreams did not come and I was broke and miserable with the same face I walked in with.. yeah, I guess I am just like every other girl..wrapped up in society and manipulated by evil beauty industries..going to extreme heights just to gain a mere inch of confidence..

  31. Kara Says:

    I never really suffered from pimples until my mid-twenties, and then bam, I look like I’m stuck in a bad after-school special! I’m trying to start my professional career – showing up at my job with these nasty whiteheads that’s about to leak pus all over my desk. Gross right?

    It gets a little worse… during a meeting where I’m talking to my group, I inadvertently scratch my forehead, where I had a couple of these nasty babies living – and I scratch off two. Ok, fine – just keep my hands still and don’t touch anything. All the while, as I’m talking, trails of blood start dripping out from where I scratched! In the middle of the meeting, the guy sitting next to me asks me if I want a tissue to mop up my forehead. Mortifying!

  32. em Says:

    I did not have acne until I turned 22!!! I thought that after kids it would go away, it did not! I have tried everything under the sun but nothing seems to work. My worst story is before a big date with this hot guy my face broke out badly. When he showed up we went for dinner but he ended up getting an “important” phone call and leaving me with the bill! Needless to say we never saw each other again.

  33. Shelby Says:

    I am in a group of friends that all have nearly perfect skin and I have mild to moderate acne. I was recently at one of those friend’s birthday party and I was sleeping over. I asked for a wash cloth so that I could take off my make-up and she looked at me kind of oddly and went searching for one. It seemed really strange that someone wouldn’t know where a wash cloth was in their own home, and I mentioned it, and her response was, “Well, I don’t really wash my face…” The girl has perfect skin and does nothing and I have to commit to a daily regimen to keep my face from looking like a pizza. Aaagh, genetics, how I loathe thee.

  34. Lissete Says:

    I was one of the lucky ones. I rarely got zits. But as payback for being so lucky, I have had to suffer along side my daughter. She has been battling acne since she was about 12. She is now 17. She had really awful cystic acne and was put on Accutane at 15 which cleared her up really well. A year later, it started again along with regular zits. Her prom is one month away and she is already stressing over the zits. Fortunately as of right now, there are no cysts. She works with little kids and they will come right out and say “What’s thaaaaaaaaaat??” while pointing at her face.

  35. elyse Says:

    In highschool, in the midst of my accutane treatment, my acne got worse. My skin got greasier, and sheets were peeling off. My face was always covered in swollen purplish lumps and scabs, so I wore plenty of makeup. This kid in one of my classes used to give me crap about my makeup every day. He always said that I was so greasy because I wore too much makeup, but we all know that is not why. Anyway, I looked at my reflection in my sideview mirror one day and noticed that my concealer was illuminating my pimples like bright little lightbulbs. I looked absolutely terrible, scabs, grease, peeling face, and glowing pimples. I had been wearing that stuff for years and years, and NO ONE told me! my skin is doing better these days, but we all know the damage that skin problems cause, and any one of your readers deserves something to make life a little easier.

  36. Jennifer Says:

    I started suffering from persistent cystic acne during my first semester finals in college. Four years later, I am still suffering from breakouts. Every holiday when I go home to visit my family, I am always lectured about not eating the correct food, not washing my face enough, messing around with my face too much, how much better I’d look without pimples and scars covering my face, etc. Although I know in my heart that they mean good, it makes me feel so bad about myself to to see loved ones look my face and think my acne is so bad that they are willing to spare the embarrassment of bringing my acne up in conversation to give me advice. However, instead of helping me, they serve as a constant reminder of my blemished skin. I have now developed a habit of bringing up my fight with acne in conversations with just about anyone as a defense mechanism, just so I don’t have to hear it from them first. I’ve tried everything I can within my budget to treat my acne, but nothing works. I love myself for who I am on the inside, but I can’t help but feel that people are distracted by my spotty face to see the real me. It’s my time to shine, but I’m hiding behind my pimples. I’m graduating college in a month and it would be wonderful to start my the next chapter of my life as a working woman with a fresh face and a boost of self-confidence.

  37. Lily Says:

    Just hearing the word acne, or zit or pimple sends shivers down my spine. Acne really affected me throughout my teen years, and though the experience is depressing I thought it really taught me how to understand other people’s feelings and be more considerate when involved in discussions.
    So I have a lot of embarrassing acne stories, but the one that stood out the most happened at my friends house. Growing up, I had two best friends who both spoke the same language that was different from mine, so I would always have trouble understanding conversations when I’m at their house with their families. This one time I went to my friends house for dinner and her family was gathered around the dinner table talking in their own language. But, because I’ve been around my friends for so long I can usually pick up a couple of simple words. So I see my friends grandmother staring at me and all of a sudden she says,
    “Why is her face so red?” while looking at me…
    Then, my friend goes “I dunno, maybe she’s drunk.” (This she said in english)
    Then the mom goes “Oh, no she just has really bad skin.”
    And by that time, I just pretended all was well. But, deep down inside I was mortified that her family was talking about me thinking that I didn’t understand. I had to excuse myself to the bathroom pretending everything was fine. Gosh, I was so scared to come out…and to think not one of friends defended me…

  38. Zee Says:

    My worst pimple story probably goes back to high school when I was 17. My family had gone to Maryland for my cousins wedding and I had been trying really hard to get my skin to behave for the festivities. I had refrained from touching, overwashing, and applying too much retin-A, which made my skin turn tomato red. A week before the wedding events started my skin had finally started to clear up–I was ecstatic. The night of the rehearsal, we all went out for a delicious spicy thai dinner. The next day, my entire face had transformed into gross, red pimples. It was horrible, but at least it taught me that spicy food is a big no-no when it comes to treating my acne!

  39. Lisa G. Says:

    I have always had difficulty with acne. I was miserable as a teenager and my skin has only gotten a little better as an adult. My worst pimple story was of course the day of my wedding. I had been fighting an increasingly worse batch of acne the week before my wedding due to all the stress and the morning of my wedding I woke up with a large, painful pimple on the side of my chin to top my whole horrible skin week of. You can see it so clearly in all of my wedding photos even though I had my makeup professionally done.

  40. Nate Says:

    I’ve honestly never really had acne in my youth–however, the recent stress of moving has caused me to break out with a number of large and obvious pimples. It’s kind of jarring and a little frustrating having to deal with this for pretty much the first time at the age of 25, plus I’m a guy, so I can’t comfortably use make-up to cover them up. This would be really helpful for my situation.

  41. Jennifer Says:

    I had perfectly beautiful clear skin all the way till college. Then for whatever reason my skin went downhill and I quickly developed severe cystic acne. My face literally ached from the pimples. I looked horrible and my confidence was at an all time low. I had gone from the girl that everyone called ‘peaches and cream’ to the girl people looked at with horror.

    I cried everyday and skipped out on a lot of school and social events because I was too ashamed of my face. No one close to me understood and many told me to just ‘get over it’. After a long time of treatments and such my skin is much more clear but I am still dealing with the after affects of scars.

    One of my worst stories was when I showed up to the opera I was performing in (I was a music major) and I had a bare face for the make-up artist to do his work. One of the guys in the show took one look at me when I walked in and said loudly “Jennifer what is wrong with your face!” Of course everyone in the dressing room turned to look and there I was completely exposed at the worst of times with a face full of huge, red, swollen, pimples.

  42. Kent Says:

    Hands down, it was the night I asked my girlfriend to marry me. I woke up with 2 pimple that morning. Ahhhhh! What luck huh?

  43. Sally Says:

    I’ve had breakouts since I was ten. yes, TEN. Small ones at first, lots of blackheads mainly, and tiny pimples. Then came the pustules and larger ones around 13.

    At 14 my doctor put me on oral antibiotics for the acne. I remember rushing out the door to school at 7:20 in the morning, no time for breakfast and having to take those pills. Having to run out of class a few times and throwing up halfway down the hall because they made me woozy and upset my stomach.

    I suffered using oral antibiotic after oral antibiotic all through high school. None of them seeming to clear my acne, and the antibiotics seemed to cause other body imbalances, yeast, fungus, impaired immune system.

    I’m 21 now and my acne is still nearly as severe as ever. A year ago, when it was at its worst, I was working as a cashier and had children come up with their parents and ask me “Hey lady, what’s wrong with your face?” It was embarrassing, and terrible, and I felt disfigured. I still feel disfigured. It’s not as severe anymore, but the scars are still there, and the little breakouts that still pop up from stubborn blackheads and whiteheads.

    I’ve tried changing my diet, taking herbal supplements, homeopathic remedies, antibiotics, almost every benzoyl peroxide and salycylic acid ointment out there. The only thing that’s lessened it even a little so far is my Duac topical gel and still nowhere near 100%.

    What makes me sadder about this is that when I put makeup on, strangers will come up to me and tell me I should be a model. Too bad I can almost never even wear makeup because it makes my skin even worse afterwards. Even the super nice mineral makeup I’ve bought, the only thing that doesn’t inflame it as much as all the rest. And then I feel like such a fake, that if they saw the purple marks left over from the acne, and the new little breakouts that I cover up they would think I was a monster in disguise.

    Every year when college classes start up I end up with thousands more pimples, too. If this laser treatment actually worked I would be so, so happy. I’ve tried everything else. I’m tempted to buy one of these on my own and SKIP OUT of paying for one of my college classes instead. that is how desperate I am to find something to stop my skin from freaking out so much.

  44. Zhai Says:

    I have always suffered from acne ever since I was 14 years old (now, 22). I have tried just about anything from ProActiv, Murad, Acneefree, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Clearasil, Mario Badescu and other prescription medications. The best that worked for me were the ones that my dermatologist prescribed; however even with insurance it was still pricey. It cost me about $250/month. I stopped after 8 months because I couldn’t afford it. Then, I went back to ProActiv. I wouldn’t say that my face got cleared but it helped until my skin got used to it that it suddenly stopped working so I completely stopped using it. It was 4 months ago when I experienced my worst acne moment. It started when my friend introduced me to a friend of hers (a blind date). The guy was really cute, and I thought we hit it off. After the date, I got really anxious so I called up my friend to ask her to ask him what he thought of me. My friend said he thought of me as a sister instead of someone he dates. I was devastated so I left it at that. A month later, I saw him at Express (where he was working) and asked about what I thought of acne.org’s regimen. I didn’t know what he was talking about so I asked him what he was talking about. And he said, “You should really do something about your bacne.” I was so embarrassed that I stopped shopping at that specific Express store location.
