Update: Day 14 of Alba Botanica Natural ACNEdote Skincare Regimen

Hi guys!

I am so happy and giddy because, my blog is almost 3,000 hits! :)

So I am back with Day 14 update on my ACNEdote skincare routine, and I am still doing my routine from last week, which is:

AM

PM

Deep Pore Wash

Deep Pore Wash

Deep Clean Astringent

Deep Clean Astringent

Invisible Treatment Gel

Mint Julep Masque (every other night)


Invisible Treatment Gel


Oil-Control Lotion

Here's what my skin looks like now:

Right: Day 14
Observations:
  • My active blemishes has been reduced, but the red spots from my old acne are still very prominent. I would love to use something to lighten them up, but Alba Botanica clearly specified not to use any other brands/products that are not from the ACNEdote line.
  • Before, I usually get 1-2 new pimple a day but now I think I only had 3 new small pimples in a week. That's a huge improvement for me.
  • It may not be clearly shown in the photos, but my pores appear a little smaller now. My skin also feels so soft and smooth.
  • The Deep Clean Astringent stings my face now. Its tolerable for me though.
I am hoping that these products can lighten my scars and red spots, but I am happy with it so far. I will give you guys another update next week, that would be Day 21, and I am hoping for more and more improvements.

Do you have any suggestions for my next post? Tutorial? Review? Please let me know by posting a comment  below or through my Facebook page, and I will see you on my next post!

    I've only tried the acnedote face wash. With that bit on pore-size improvement, I might just try the rest of the line. Figuring out how it would work with my tretinoin/retin a.

      I am not sure if you could use tretinoin with salicylic acid, and also Alba Botanica advised not to use other products aside from the line. Best to consult your dermatologist or research about it. Let me know what happens. :)
