Today I am going to review my favourite product. This is the best product that I have used in my entire life. I am using this product since like 5 years and love it to the core.This is one of the best products in the USA market and mostly all the stores who sell this promote this brand very strongly. I was suffering from very severe acne. I used to have 5 new pimples everyday which looks really bad and painful too, I had tried all the products but they just gave temporary results and the acne came back. I read reviews about proactiv and told my uncle staying in the States to get it and when he visited walmart they suggested him to go for this brand, so he bought this and I would thank that person who suggested him this product. Let’s read what I actually loved about the product.
Price: 20$ for a cleanser, toner and lotion
AcneFree is the only brand that makes acne clearing systems formulated with Advanced Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide. Micro-sized benzoyl peroxide is designed to work faster and penetrate deeper into pores. The Original AcneFree 24 Hour Acne Clearing System includes Oil-free Purifying Cleanser, Renewing Toner and Repair Lotion- three simple steps, twice a day, for clearer skin. Visible results in just 1 – 3 days.
I will first talk individually about these 3 products and then give an overall review.
Step 1: Acnefree oil free purifying cleanser
This is the very first step in the CTM routine. The cleanser comes in a white fat bottle cylindrical in shape and contains 118ml of the cleanser. Carrying them individually is fine but carrying all the three along would be really heavy. The cap is a turn around one and the hole is present which gives out the product. The cleanser is white in colour and neither runny nor thick. The cleanser has very few that too very little granules in it which help remove dirt. The cleanser does not lather at all, you just massage that white stuff over your face and wash it. As it contains benzoyl peroxide it may sting on the skin if you massage for more than one minute, but I don’t normally do that. This is actually the step where the reaction and pimple reduction starts.
Step 2: Acnefree Renewing toner
After you are done with cleansing, the next step we move on to is the toner. This comes in the same bottle and is aqua blue in colour. The colour is not visible when you take it in the hand but you are supposed to use the toner with a cotton pad and there you will notice the shade. It has a proper chemical smell and obviously it will have because this product is supposed to solve your acne problem and not give you pleasure of applying. The toner again is 118 ml and is similar to water. It takes like 5 minutes to dry up completely and does not sting the skin at all. It even tones the skin and you will not be able to see any discolouration. Your face starts looking clear.
This is the final step of the kit. You are supposed to apply the lotion only after the toner has completely dried up.The lotion comes in a small bottle of just 59 ml and I did not like it why they gave a half sized bottle of the cleanser and the toner. It gets used up pretty quickly and the lotion gets over soon. It comes in white colour and a little thick and even this is supposed to be applied with a cotton pad and not with fingers as you may transfer bacteria. This also has a chemical smell but not that strong. The lotion will also take 5 minutes to dry up and you are done. This may sting a little but that completely depends on whether benzoyl peroxide suits your skin or not.
Initially when you are done with all the 3 steps your skin may look a little red and may also sting a little but may go away after 5 minutes of completing all the 3 steps. It seriously shows results in 1-3 days of usage. The very next morning the redness of the pimple or acne will go away and the pimple will become half the size. And in three days my pimples really go away. I do not apply it in the morning just use it during the night time as I don’t really have time to do it in the day-time plus the face would look red. It definitely dries the skin a bit but this product is something that may give different reactions to every skin type. There might be different reactions also with people even if two of them have oily skin. But it has been really compatible with my skin and I have never ever seen a better acne and pimple treatment than this one. I strongly recommend it and guys use it and see your pimples and the scars go away in like a week.

Cons of Acne Free 24 Hour Acne Clearing System:
-May sting the skin and that too only for some people
-Will give mild redness after usage but clear skin in the morning.
-May react very differently to different skin types but people having acne prone will get almost similar results to mine
-The repairing lotion is very small and gets used up very quickly
-Expiry date of just 11 months but it does get over in 3 months if used everyday
-Not available in India
Will I repurchase/recommend Acne Free 24 Hour Acne Clearing System?
Yes I am going to get it again. The cons are not that major and can be totally neglected. This is my 5th kit and I always have one in my cupboard and currently I am using it but when I feel the acne have gone I stop using it and vice versa. I strongly recommend it as it is the most reliable product and guaranteed product in terms of acne. People with acne problem go for this and I am sure you will never regret the purchase.
