I’ve been MIA for almost a month now, so if you’re here right now, I thank you for not giving up on me! You see, apparently having a broken finger in a splint makes getting blog posts out just a little difficult. And when I say a little, I really mean it makes almost impossible! Lesson learned: plan out blog posts and type them out in advance. Check!

The good news is (other than my finger no longer being in a splint) I’ve had time to plan out some awesome content for you! Now I just need to get that content from my head to my fingers (so thankful I’m a crazy fast typer)! Anyways, welcome back and thank you for sticking with me!

Today, I’ll be doing a product review of a new facial cleanser I have been LOVING lately! If you’ve seen my previous skin care routine post, you know I rarely ever get acne. I’ve been blessed with amazing skin! It’s a little oily from time to time, but overall, I’ve truly been blessed!

But recently, I’ve been struggling with cystic acne on my chin. {If you haven’t heard of cystic acne before, these are the really red “bumpy” types of acne.} When treating acne, it is SO important to understand what type of acne you are dealing with, because each type needs to be treated differently. I’ve had it for probably close to 3 weeks now and just can’t seem to kick it, which has never been a problem for me. Usually I can just treat my spots for a day or two and then it’s almost gone.  But this time, my oh so stubborn personality leaked onto my skin!

Before I put ANYTHING new on my face I do a lot of research, read reviews, ask friends and family for product recommendations, etc. So you know when I’m trying a new facial product and sharing it with you, I must be in love with it.

I read so many rave reviews over the Yes to products line, especially Yes to Tomatoes products, because they are designed to treat acne. I picked up the Yes to tomatoes detoxifying charcoal CLEANSER at my local Target. I grabbed this cleanser specifically for the reason in the top left corner of the bottle it states “clears up acne”, which is what I was needing.

For the past week and a half, I’ve been using this product once a day, in the mornings and have seen a SIGNIFICANT change in my acne. I only am using it once a day because it does seem to dry out my skin a little bit. BUT it is doing amazing things for my skin! I had never used a Yes to product before, or even a product with charcoal, but I can promise this will NOT be my last time using one.

I have found a new skin care line I am loving!! At times I feel my skin almost becomes “immune” to the products I use, so I do like to switch up my products and brands from time to time. But when something is working, I definitely stick to it!

As always, I am not a doctor and definitely not a skin care expert. I am just sharing a product that worked AMAZING for me! Everyone’s skin is different so everyone should expect different results!

So tell me, what are some of your favorite skin care products to use to treat stubborn acne? I’d  love to hear some at home remedies that have worked too! Leave them in the comments! And as always, if you found this post helpful, don’t forget to pin in, so all your friends can read it too!
