Acne Solutions: When is enough enough?

Description: I basically used the Clinique Acne Solutions system properly except that I used 2 toners which can be very drying on your skin. Clinique skincare (even when used properly) has never been my favorite.

This is one of the few products I would attribute the word "magic" to. It is great for breakouts, burns, skin
irritations, insect bites, etc.

JR Watkins Petro Carbo Salve, $10.99, 4.37oz
Product Description:

Petro carbo is a protective, soothing, healing topical dressing that is safe and effective for relieving pain and itching associated with minor cuts, burns and scrapes. It has antiseptic, antifungal, and anestheic proterties. 

Relied upon for generations, Petro-Carbo Salve is still a staple for every home medicine cabinet and first-aid kit. Its active ingredient is phenol (carbolic acid), but it derives other benefits and its unique aroma from botanicals such as camphor, oil of spruce and the tea tree relative, cajeput.

This stuff is really amazing, Watkins Petro Carbo Salve is a first aid kit in a tin! Sometimes known as the black drawing salve, although the salve isn't black in color any longer it still has the same drawing abilities. It actually helps draw out slivers and other small foreign materials emedded in your skin.

Can be used for:

  • cuts
  • scrapes
  • minor burns
  • bed sores, pressure sores
  • road rash, draws out embedded dirt
  • insect bites and stings
  • wind burn
  • chafed skin
  • blisters
  • chapped skin
  • slivers, draws out prickles, slivers of wood or metal
  • athelete's foot
  • boils
  • cracked skin

  • This is a natural product and this brand has been around for awhile, is based in Minnesota, and has a great reputation. You can find some of their products at Target. The only downside may be there is a strong smell, but its WELL worth it for the results of this product! I have also been using Sunday Riley JUNO transformative serum I got as a sample in my October birchbox. For $125 for the full size, 30ml, I would not be repurchasing. I was hoping it would help with my skin irritation, but Watkins instead came to the rescue!

          Update: My skin is feeling 90% better the next morning. Thanks Watkins. This is the only product   
          out there that could have saved my face in 1 day!
