Do you have acne or do you know someone that does? I don't have acne now, but I did when I was eleven years old and when I was a teenager. Once in awhile I might get a few pimples, but not very often. For this review I received the Relogy (Step 1) Dual Action Treatment Foam, Relogy (Step 2) Skin Balancing Lotion with Coconut Milk and the Relogy Targeted Acne Spot Treatment with Seaweed Extract. My friend Callie has acne, so I let her do the review of the products. She was telling me how easy the products are to use and she has used them for about a month. Her complexion has really improved, it's not red or irritated, like she would get when she had a major out break.
Callie liked the thought that you could use the Dual Action Treatment Foam, with or without water! She would still cleanse her face in the morning and evening, then apply the Dual Action Treatment. Then she would apply the Skin Balancing Lotion, with Coconut Milk, which made her skin silky smooth! She used the Targeted Acne Spot Treatment once or twice a day.
Callie loved all of the products and would recommend them, but there were a few things she was not all that happy about. The Dual Action Treatment Foam has some inactive ingredients, like Sodium Laurel Sulfate and Methyl Paraben in it! The Targeted Acne Spot Treatment has a rollerball applicator, so she felt that this would some how let the bacteria into the tube.

RELOGY Rinse-Free Foam Acne Treatment: Uses the natural healing power of Citrus Bergamie, made from the Bergamot orange, which is a fragrant hybrid fruit grown in southern Italy. Bergamot is used for its cooling, refreshing effect on the skin. Bergamot is ideally suited to help calm inflamed skin. It also has natural anti-septic and oil-reducing properties that aid in the healing and prevention of acne. Meadowfoam Seed Oil comes from a small, herbaceous winter-spring annual. It is a powerful anti-oxidant and natural moisturizer known for its rejuvenating properties, and ability to keep skin hydrated and supple, which aids in prevention of acne scarring. Salicylic Acid is a mildly acidic organic molecule derived from the bark of the White Willow tree. Salicylic Acid works as an exfoliant, speeding up cellular turnover to lift dead skin cells and reveal new skin beneath. It has mild inflammation-fighting effects, so it can reduce redness and swelling on the surface of your skin and can improve skin tone and texture. It also helps reduce excess oil on the surface of your skin and in your pores.
Rinse-Free Foam Acne Treatment: Water, Salicylic Acid (from Willow Tree Bark), Benzalkonium Chloride, Sodium Laurel Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Clycoside, Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Panthenol, PEG-75, Meadownfoam Oil, Tetrasodium EDTA, Methyl Paraben, Propl Paraben, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (orange) Extract, FD&C Blue #1.
RELOGY 100% Natural Skin Balancing Lotion: Organic Coconut Milk and Jojoba are just two of the beneficial botanicals used in this hydrating skin balancing lotion. Native Americans have long used Jojoba for its natural ability to heal wounds. It has anti-microbial properties, which means it actually discourages the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. In addition, the chemical composition of Jojoba closely resembles that of the skin's natural sebum, so it is gentle and easily absorbed. The rich tropical smell of Coconut Oil and Coconut Milk combined with its many topical skin benefits makes this oil and excellent daily face and body moisturizer, and its disinfectant and anti-microbial properties help to keep moisture from escaping from the skin, which aids in retaining softness and suppleness.
Skin Balancing Lotion: purified water, certified organic coconut oil, certified organic jojoba, emulsifying wax, glycerin, certified organic coconut milk, allantion, phenoxyethanal.
Targeted Spot Treatment: Uses seaweed extract from the Chondrus Crispus plant, gathered from the icy waters along the rugged coastal regions of the North Atlantic. It is also used as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, which can block pores. Lactobacillus/Bean Seed Extract is a pro-biotic used for its anti-inflammatory properties. Rosemary Leaf Extract is known to protect skin cells, fight signs of aging and the formation of dark spots. The effect of stress and toxins on skin are lessened by Rosemary Leaf, as it safeguards a protective protein known as HSP70. Tea Tree Leaf Oil offers a natural, skin-friendly way to clear acne due to its antiseptic properties for treating wounds and preventing infections, and Salicylic Acid, made from Willow Tree Bark, provides an extremely effective and targeted treatment for acne spots and can improve the look and feel of the skin.
