Off to Duane Reade I went and low and behold they had a generic version of the 3 step kit. The $9.99 price wasn’t a large investment. Unfortunately it was too harsh for my post-post-post adolescent skin and started to dry it out which made me then worry about wrinkles as well as blemishes. One day, while browsing the aisles and aisles of goodies at Bed, Bath and Beyond, I happened upon AcneFree products. At $19.99 it was again worth the investigating so I purchased their version of the 3 Step Acne kit (I was also beginning to meditate daily on patience in case I truly needed to place my credit card order and wait for the mail to arrive).
Like most 3 step kits theirs has a wash, a toner and a repair/preventative lotion that contains time released benzoyl peroxide. After the 1st week what blemishes I had subsided and my skin was smooth. After week 4 any marks on the side of my face, where I tended to pick without thinking, lightened and virtually disappeared. Now pimples visit me once a month and I am waiting for menopause to take care of that. I admit sometimes I neglect being consistent in my use of the products and can experience a break out, especially is I am experimenting with face creams and potions. But if I promptly return to using the kit everything seems to heal rather quickly and without consequence. Unfortunately the product doesn’t stop the evil eye because the other day when my friend Tanya commented how glowing and wonderful my skin looked that night I found two eruptions on my left cheek which I promptly named MJ and Ashley before attacking them with the AcneFree Products. They are no longer with us.
