          I was blessed enough to be given free Belo Essentials AcnePro and Skin Whitening Underarm kits earlier this month. I was a little too excited to try the AcnePro kit, since I've been reading pretty good reviews--plus it's Belo Essentials' latest product to offer after the Skin Whitening Underarm Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. Continue reading for my review.

          I'm not blessed with a flawless skin--but I'm not exactly pimply. When I hit puberty, I had a few zits here and there, nothing my dermatologist's medicine can't handle so they vanish in a few weeks. But ever since I entered the corporate world, I have been having zits. Mainly because of my lifestyle--the food I eat, my sleeping habits and of course, stress. And lately, especially this year, I have been not too caring of my skin; I stopped maintenance creams for my face for months already, add my unhealthy food choice and sleeping habits plus stress--voila. Pimples all over my forehead and temple area. Even though they don't exactly seem to be screaming to be noticed, it still bothers me because I don't usually have this many pimples. Plus it's kind of difficult to put on makeup if you have pimples. :(

There are many factors that cause pimples/acne:
  • Hormonal changes, especially during puberty, before your monthly period (in women), or during pregnancy
  • Certain medications
  • Makeup and cosmetics - such as oil-based makeup, suntan oil, and hair products
  • Stress
  • Squeezing or picking at skin blemishes
  • Hard scrubbing of the skin
  • Dirt
  • Excess oils produced by the skin - which is caused by fatty, salty and oily foods; and lastly,
  • Genes

          When I found out that I'll be having Belo Essentials' AcnePro kit, I was ecstatic, because my pimples doesn't want to be tamed and I thought that I can finally put an end to these zits on my face.

The AcnePro kit comes in three easy steps, that should be done every morning and at night:
  1. Cleanse with the AcnePro Pimple-Fighting Face Wash (the biggest tube); it eliminates acne-causing bacteria and removes excess oil.
  2. Tone with the AcnePro Treatment Toner; unclogs congested pores, dries up pimples and exfoliates dead skin cells.
  3. Repair with the AcnePro Pimple Gel; dries up pimples fast, calms inflammation and promotes healing and anti-bacterial action. It significantly lightens blemishes that pimples leave behind.
          I followed every step religiously for two weeks to remove or lessen the pimples in my forehead, especially near my hairline. After my first wash, my face felt softer and smoother--so I thought, this is it. This product is effective. After using it for one week, I noticed to have more pimples on my forehead, but I thought that it's just with my lifestyle. I gave this product the benefit of the doubt, so I continued using it. To my surprise, on my second week of using the AcnePro kit, I had more pimples on my forehead than I did before using the kit! To my horror, they were even reddish, sometimes dark and really itchy. I read reviews online regarding this product and found out that some people experienced what I did too, so I decided to stop using it. 

          The verdict: To clear things out, I'm not saying that these products made my skin condition worse. What I'm saying is that it's not for everyone--this might be better for some, but there will still be people who won't be "hiyang" with these product. I recommend though, to consult a dermatologist first if your pimples are becoming worse, and so that he/she can give you the medicine that will suit your skin type. It's my first time to try an over-the-counter skin care product, so I therefore conclude that you always, always consult your dermatologist first. :)

          However, if you want to try this, you may find it at all leading drugstores here in the Philippines. I recommend that you buy the whole kit to see its maximum benefit, plus it will also save you more or less than a hundred pesos if you do. You even get to take home a nice jewelry organizer. The prices:
  • BELO ESSENTIALS ACNEPRO Pimple-Fighting Gel Face Wash (Php 99.75 for 50mL)
  • BELO ESSENTIALS ACNEPRO Treatment Toner (Php 79.75 for 60mL)
  • BELO ESSENTIALS ACNEPRO Pimple Gel (Php 149.75 for 10g)
----Or, you can join in this mini-giveaway I am having (since I have another kit, I decided to give it away because this product didn't work for me). You can win one AcnePro kit and a few other more by joining here. 'Til next beauty review! :)
