Adult acne is common in women of all ages—54 percent of women ages 25 and over have some form of facial acne—and the main causes can be stress, hormones, diet or environmental factors.
But, a new, effective solution is finally here! The multi-action, acne-eliminating gel that decongests pores, controls oil, kills acne-causing bacteria and reduces inflammation: the Dr. Dennis Gross Acne Eliminating Gel ($40). The best part? It is formulated with three of the best ingredients for promoting clear skin. Monk’s Pepper helps regulate oil production, Farnesol reduces excess sebum and fights acne-causing bacteria and salicylic acid breaks down oil buildup to reduce and prevent pore blockages.
NewBeauty put it to the test: More than 20 lucky readers were given the chance to test-drive the acne-fighter before it hit shelves this week. The results were clear, literally.
Over the course of 10 days, readers tried and tested the fast-acting gel and began seeing changes after every use. They noticed smoother, silkier, less-red skin with improved texture—some even reported that it faded their acne scars. One reader commented, “I noticed within a day or two that my active blemishes were reduced and there were no acne scars left behind once they went away.” Eighty-one percent of trial users noticed a reduced size of active blemishes and 85 percent agreed their skin remained clear after using the gel.
Most of us have experienced redness that tends to come along with acne but this healing gel has niacinamide, aloe vera and green tea to reduce inflammation and soothe skin. One reader commented: “It helped quite a bit—I typically have a lot of redness, and that went down drastically. My skin is more even and less red.”
Too good to be true? NewBeauty’s beauty director, Brittany Burhop Fallon, gave it a go when pesky breakouts popped up along her jawline. “Many acne gels leave my skin feeling dry or slightly irritated, but this one did neither. It felt comfortable on my skin, and when I applied it at night, my blemishes and redness were subdued come morning.”
It’s no surprise why 86 percent of these readers would recommend this product to a friend and 81 percent plan on purchasing it for their future breakouts (which 86 percent agreed that it helped to do).
Next time you go to pick at your face or pop a zit, reach for Dr. Dennis Gross Acne Eliminating Gel. Picking and popping can spread bacteria and lead to more breakouts down the line.
