Review: Clarisea + Giveaway

I've been blessed with good skin on my face...I've had my problems here and there but generally I've been blemish free, especially during my teenage years when everyone else was desperately looking for acne solutions. But apparently, since I don't have pimples on my face, I have to get them somewhere else. Back acne, otherwise known as 'bacne', has plagued me since high school. It's ridiculously hard to get rid of and prevents me from wearing cute tops and bathing suits without being self conscious. I've used tons and tons of products to treat it and have even visited dermatologists, but to no avail. I recently stumbled across a line of products by Clarisea and decided to give it a shot- nothing to lose but 50 bucks right? Included in the Clarisea line of products are salts, both for your face and body (this will mainly be a review for the body but I'm sure many of my thoughts will hold true for the face products as well). So I'm not exactly sure why soaking your body in salts will do it good but here's an interesting excerpt I found from the website-
" The sodium chloride fights bacteria on the surface of skin while deeply exfoliating pores so existing blemishes heal more quickly and emerging breakouts are brought to the surface and flushed out....Different types of sea salts contain different percentages of sea minerals. The mineral content in most salts, including dead sea salt, is too dense and potent for sensitive facial skin. Clarisea's blend is different. It is specially formulated with a clarifying balance of ocean and mineral sea salt that leaves skin looking as clear and healthy as it does after a dip in the ocean. An optimal amount of sodium chloride deeply exfoliates pores and eliminates bacteria without stripping skin of its natural moisture while potassium, magnesium and calcium work to tone, soften and smooth out skin without causing redness or irritation. "

Cool stuff right? I've been soaking in the salts for about a month now and I definitely see a difference. While not all of my back acne has disappeared, it has gradually gotten less and less. It's also given me reason to relax and take a bath- can't remember the last time I did that as opposed to a shower before using this product. Their line of body products also include an exfoliating cleanser and salt scrub. As you can see, I'm really intrigued by these salts and how it can help my skin- hopefully I will keep seeing results. There is a lot more to learn about these products so visit www.Clearisea.com for more info. FYI, the complete starter set (including face and body products) will cost you $73 and make sure to look out of their promotions!

  3. I have the same problem as you except I have acne on my face. When a friend ask you if you wanna go float the river or go tanning, i would always say no. Because of my bacne of course. :[ I've tried many methods (acne body wash, rice vinegar for back, etc. ) none has worked for me yet.
