A facialist/nurse at my doctor’s office (the doctor’s wife) told me about the BioElements Acne Clearing System and said it was very effective. I tried BioElements products years ago for a while and I wasn’t that crazy about them. I think they made my face kind of red and irritated, if I recall. These are all new products though — I never used any of the ones in the Acne Clearing System. The new facialist I’m seeing (Renee) uses both Eminence Organics and BioElements products. I purchased a trial kit of the Eminence Organics products for oily skin, and I’m really loving them. It’s too early to tell if they will keep my skin clear though. I do have a little pimple just below my lip, but my skin has been clear other than that (I’ve only been using them for 8 days now). I’m a little nervous because the products I’m using do contain oils, although they’re all natural plant oils. She has me using the lemon cleanser, which is a lotion that feels pretty oily to me. They have a cleanser specifically for acne-prone skin, but she doesn’t carry it. I might be old enough to get away with using the richer Eminence products now, but only time will tell. They have lighter non-greasy products for very oily problem skin also which I haven’t tried.
I just thought others might be interested in the BioElements acne line, or perhaps someone here has some experience with it. Some of the products do contain salicylic acid, and they contain a lot of natural extracts, like green tea extract, etc., which sound interesting. I read that green tea extract is very good for acne.
