free bottle of EpiClear offer

I saw this on TV. Go to www.tryepiclear.com to get a free bottle of Epiclear (it’s a topical spray for acne). You can also go to www.epiclear.com . I think it’s $4.95 for the shipping and handling. Also, I think they automatically sign you up for membership and automatic shipment, so make sure that you cancel that if you don’t want to continue with it. They didn’t have a full ingredients listing on the website, but it contains salicylic acid, liposomes and vitamins. It sounds interesting. It might be worth giving it a try. Who knows, it might work really well, and it’s only $4.95 to try it. There was also a phone number, (800) 608-5576. I don’t know what the regular price of the product is though.

I found an interesting item re Epiclear at the FDA website http://www.fda.gov/foi/warning_letters/g3397d.htm . It is a warning that they cannot advertise it as being for acne because it doesn’t contain FDA approved acne fighting ingredients. The list they have doesn’t include salicylic acid, and now the spray does contain salicylic acid. The ingredients list at the FDA website are:

water, glycerol, phosphatidylcholine from natural lecithin, vitamin C, ethanol, vitamin E-acetate, menthol, vitamin A-palmitate, and chlorhexidine-salt

Perhaps the ingredients are similar now except with salicylic acid added to comply with FDA regulations. I’d be really interested if some of you tried it and responded as to whether it worked for you or not.

P.S. I just did a search on the board here and realized that I’d posted that some people got ripped off by the Epliclear company. See http://www.clearskin.net/viewtopic.php?t=5384&highlight=epiclear . Now I’m thinking it might not be a good idea to give them your credit card information at all. Maybe there’s a way that you can just send them the $4.95 to get the free bottle without giving them your credit card information to try it. There’s a couple of people on the board here who said it didn’t help them though. I don’t know.

  1. I started using Epiclear a couple months ago. I got the “free” bottle and it seemed to work very well for my skin. I ran out sooner than when the next bottle was supposed to show and my skin was very bad, so I called to cancel. They told me I need to use Cetaphil to wash with and then use the spray, so they sent me a free bottle to test out so I could use it with Cetaphil. I have yet to test it, b/c I started Proactiv directly after I called. You can get Epiclear to cut the price to $24.95 per month instead of $59.95 per month. I’m going to cancel. I saw it on e-bay for very cheap.
    BTW: My skin has gone to hell since I started using Proactiv. I don’t know what is wrong. I even broke out right under my eyes (i’ve never broken out there before) They told me I should see results the 4th or 5th week, but I’m on my 4th week and my skin looks the worst it has ever looked. They said they have a stronger version that they would send me, but I think I’m going to cancel all together.

    I just saw this post by Lenore about BP and ProActiv

    It can take 3-4 months for BP products to clear the skin. I read in Dr. Fulton’s acne book that there can be a flare-up around 11 weeks in or so. I guess there are layers of stuff in the pores that come out in phases. Sometimes there are initial flare-ups (like in the first few days or weeks) and sometimes there are delayed flare-ups (like after 2-3 months) from various topical acne products. You really have to hang in there and give it time. The difficult part is making the decision as to how long to try a particular product for. If a product has had a lot of testing done on it and a lot of people have used it with success, then I would say it’s worth hanging in there with it for 3-4 months to see if it will clear your skin. If you keep jumping around from one product line to the next, then you’ll never know if they would have eventually worked for you. The same goes for dietary changes and taking supplements. It’s not an instant thing, unfortunately. I guess some people have had really quick results with certain products: my girlfriend started to clear up using ProActiv quite quickly (like in the first week or two) and her skin continued to improve over time. It didn’t work so well for me though and was way too harsh on my skin.

    Maybe I’ll stick with Proactiv a little longer

  2. K2, I’m sorry to hear that you weren’t able to continue using that experimental topical made by Xoma. How painful is that to think you’ve found the answer and then have it ripped away from you? I’m so sorry. I’m also so sorry that you’re skin is acting up now. Did your skin stay clear the whole time you were using the Xoma stuff? How long did you use it for? I’m doing quite well with MyChelle’s Dermaceuticals products plus a special diet and supplements. I did well with Naturally Clear’s line of skin care also (haven’t tried their new cleanser yet though) and I still take their vitamin/mineral supplement for acne. I really feel that it helps a lot. I’ve been lax lately with keeping up with my whole regime. It’s a lot to keep up with sometimes. I really hope you clear up very soon K2. It’s a hard decision as to how long to give a particular skin care system time to work. You don’t want to waste time with something that isn’t going to work for you, but then you don’t want to quit too soon either. Personally, I prefer the Naturally Clear or MyChelle products — they’re gentler than ProActiv and don’t contain questionable chemicals. MyChelle’s cranberry cleanser is really drying though and her clay mask can be drying. The MyChelle Pumpkin Peel can burn a little sometimes, but it’s no big deal. My skin hasn’t gotten red, irritated or peely from the MyChelle products. The Naturally Clear products aren’t drying at all, although the niacinamide can cause a little redness in some people. It didn’t really bother my skin though. I prefer the MyChelle line (it’s more comprehensive and addresses wrinkles and other skin issues) but the Naturally Clear products are very good also. The spray wasn’t moisturizing enough by itself though. I needed to use a heavier moisturizer on top of it.
