Treating acne for real with Relogy

If you are looking for a unique, cutting-edge solution to acne, you will want to consider RelogyRelogy is an excellent solution for oily, breakout-prone skin.  It is free of harsh, skin-irritating ingredients.  Plus, Relogy has a simple regimen with only a few steps, it’s easy to use and actually pretty fun!  What makes it fun?  One word:  FOAM.

I know I am easily amused, but acne sucks, so if my skin care products are enjoyable I really appreciate it.  Plus I love this – they have a ‘Guaranteed Happiness’ policy.  You love your products after 60 days, or your money back.  Other reasons to love this line?  It’s cruelty free, vegan, and plant-based. 

Relogy isn’t about flashy marketing.  It’s about simple, easy to use and effective natural products.  My skin is finicky, it’s oily one day and dry the next.  I have hormonal acne, and it’s difficult to find something that can handle the daily differences in my skin and the hormone issues without nasty side effects like over-drying the skin.  I really, really like what Relogy (60 day supply is $49.95) did for me, and it’s definitely something I highly recommend to anyone with acne issues.  Here’s the scoop:

step one

Step One

The first product is called Step 1 Dual Action Treatment Foam.  This a rinse-free (and fun!) cleaning foam.  You can remove most makeup with this – and honestly, if this doesn’t remove your makeup then you are probably using products that aren’t right for acne-prone skin.  To cleanse off makeup, use the rinse method: wet your skin, cleanse with the foam, and rinse.  Follow that with some foam on acne-prone areas, and don’t rinse it off.  The foam kills bacteria that causes blemishes and truly leaves your skin super soft and moisturized.  It’s awesome for your chest and back, too.  It’s full of effective natural ingredients that clear blemishes, heal skin, and soothe inflammation.

love the packaging

It has a great dispenser that pumps out this really cool foam.  You don’t need a full pump – that’s way too much product.  I would say about 1/4 of a pump is perfect for your cleansing your face then rinsing.  You need even less of that for the non-rinse application (smoothing foam on your acne-prone areas, for me on either side of my chin and around my nose).

To prevent acne you only need to use it once a day. If you are treating a current case of acne, use it twice a day until you are  acne-free.  The foam has salicylic acid which naturally exfoliates the skin.  Relogy recommends no other sort of exfoliation, as too much can actually irritate acne-prone skin and cause more problems than it cures.  Basically, Relogy says to get great skin you need to be kind to it!

step two

Step Two

The second step is the Skin Balancing Lotion with Coconut Milk.  The name sounds pretty rich for an anti-acne line, but it’s actually a very light lotion that sinks in quickly.  It leaves skin soft and moisturized, and doesn’t clog pores.

more great packaging

The lotion is 100% natural.  The packaging is perfect.  I love the dispenser, it keeps the lotion protected from oxygen so it keeps the integrity of the ingredients.  You don’t need much, a little bit goes a long way and it feels terrific on.

And then there is the ‘secret weapon’ – the Relogy Targeted Acne Spot Treatment.

Relogy Targeted Acne Spot Treatment

Really, the Targeted Acne Spot Treatment is step 1.5.  Use this after the foam and before the lotion.  Just apply it directly to any blemishes.  I also use this by itself as a spot treatment and love the results.  It’s extremely effective and super gentle. 

One more quick bit of advice:  don’t pick at those blemishes!!  Relogy recommends placing a warm, damp washcloth over blemishes first, then squeezing, pushing very gently outward.  If you squeeze too hard you will push the infection even deeper into your skin, creating more problems.  After, put some foam on and let it dry, then I also put a little Targeted Acne Spot Treatment on to finish up. 

Relogy is a lovely, effective cruelty-free line.  While they say it can take up to 8 weeks to garner the full results, I had impressive results within one week.  Relogy is without question an excellent line for those of us still fighting acne!  – Lisa
