Olay Pro-X Clear $50 Giveaway

I've mentioned before that one of the most annoying parts of getting older is something I never expected - acne. I have more breakouts now than I ever did as a teenager.

One of the greatest signs of being kicked out of Eden is that I am combatting gray hair and zits simultaneously.

It's just not right.

I've spent a lot of time with recently waxed furrowed brow in the acne aisle at CVS trying to figure out how to treat it. Because y'all know, just like everything else the skin is not what it was twenty years ago.

We have needs. Very special needs.

The folks at Oil of Olay paid a lot of money to do a lot of research which can be summed up like this:
  1. most adult women deal with acne on a regular basis
  2. all of us hate it
  3. none of us have a clue what to do about it
So they put their heads together and came up with a special line of acne products just for us called the Olay Pro-X Clear Skin Care Line.

Then they paid a lot more money to do three independent studies which concluded that:
  1. This stuff works.
The Acne Protocol is a three step program that consists of a Pore Clarifying Cleanser with salicylic acid, a Skin Clearing cream for breakouts, and a Complexion Renewing Lotion that helps to even out skin tone and moisturize.

My biggest problem is the "underground" zits. I used this product at a very crucial time of the month, if you know what I mean - and I think you do - and yippee! No underground zits. And the moisturizer has not caused any breakouts on the rest of my face, which has been a consistent problem for me with other moisturizers. 

Another thing about the product that I really liked is that it is fragrance free. I have come to view most fragrances to be more unnecessary chemicals, so this is a definite bonus to me.
