BioElements Acne Clearing System

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.

  1. I spoke with Renee about the Acne Clearing System and she said that she was involved in the clinical testing of the products. She said that she had some clients who had great success with the products, and these were clients who had tried all kinds of other skin care products (like ProActiv, Murad, etc.) without success. It might be something worth looking into, especially if you can find a place that will give you a money back guarantee on them.

    I know that I point out a lot of different products here on the board, but I figure it’s worth passing on the information in case the products might work well for some people. I still believe in diet and supplements, meditation, etc., and try to eat right, but I also think that good skin care products and facials can help tremendously also. I never was a huge fan of facials before, but I do think that both Kay (at DermaCare) and Renee (at Skin Care Sanctuary) have (and are) helping my skin a lot. Renee is an RN and I think Kay may have been a nurse previously also and is currently a paramedical aesthetician. I think that the para-medical type facialist is better equipped to deal with acne than the regular facialists are, and might even be covered by insurance, I don’t know.

    So far, my skin is staying clear on the Eminence Organics products. It’s been two weeks since I had the Eminence facial from Renee and started on the products, and so far I’m doing great on them (keeping my fingers crossed).

  2. Here’s the information from the BioElements website about the Acne Clearing System. It takes a bit of searching through the website to look at each of the individual descriptions, so I put it all together in one file:

  3. Well, if u found a porevious effective treatment for you, y change?
    From my experience, it’s better to try out one product first, the night treatment product in that line….if it works fine then proceed with the cleanser and stuffs…for me to start a new complete regimen suddenly is too taxing to my skin…

  4. I’m not planning on using it myself, because my skin has been staying quite clear (I’m using the Eminence Organics products). I just thought that someone else might be interested in the line, since Renee said it worked so great for some of her clients. I think you need to use the whole system of products, though, to get good results.

  5. I decided that I am going to try this line. My face has been breaking out bad again (cystic). I don’t really like the YouRx Plus products all that much, and I’ve run out of a few of the products at this point. Kay sold me the mask for normal skin last time (I had been using the one for oily/problem skin previously), and it burns my face (might be the ascorbic acid in it, don’t know). I’d rather spend the money to try a new line. Renee said that this new BioElements Acne Clearing System worked on some of the most stubborn cases, and that some of her clients had tried a jillion things that didn’t work for them but this one did. I haven’t been able to get ahold of Renee for a couple of weeks, though, since a family tragedy occurred (a fatal car accident).

    There’s a place near me that sells these products, although the kit is over $200. They have some samples, although they don’t have them for all 5 products in the kit. I’m going to try the samples first and if I like them, I plan to buy the kit in the next week or two. There are some postings on the board here about green tea extract testing out to be as effective as BP for acne, without the irritation, and it’s in several of the products in the system.

  6. It has pretty much the same ingredients as the zenmed acne gel. What’s the price of it?

  7. Zap, I’m not sure how much the kit is, actually, because when I went to the salon tonight, the lady there said the girl who told me on the phone that they had the kit was mistaken, and that they only sell the individual products. I think there is a price break with the kit, though. I looked at some of the individual products, and they were like $40-$50 each (oh boy), so it looks like it could easily add up to that much. The lady there said that the products were selling well. They gave me samples for the cleanser and astringent and I used them tonight. I’m going to go to other salons and see if I can get samples for some of the other products also. I don’t have the money yet, so it’s going to be a few days before I can purchase all the products. They contain more chemicals (like propylene and butylene glycol) than I was hoping they would, but they also have a lot of natural extracts in them too. My skin is pretty messed up right now. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that these products will do the trick on their own, without the facials, because facials are just so expensive.

  8. I located a salon that carries the kit, and it is $215. She said that they weren’t full-sized products though, and that it also contained a product called “Break Out Control” which is a spot treatment. I don’t understand how the kit can be that expensive if they’re not full sizes. Someone at another salon said that the 5 products together added up individually to $221 in the full sizes (not including the “Break Out Control”).
