Super by Perricone Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



You all know I love Perricone and the new Super by Perricone. Perricone makes my favorite moisturizer of all time. It works the best for my face and doesn't leave it greasy. 

This time I received the Clarifying Activator for acne
I just love their logo paper!

 It came with the spray pump out, which is great because it won't leak as easily.
I never had acne as a teenager. My skin was great. I used a cleanser daily and that was that. I never needed any special thing for my face. I would have the occasional pimple, but it was far from acne. 

Then I got my birth control at 17. about 6 months later (I was almost 18) my acne started. It wasn't bad, but was noticeable and enough for me to try products to get rid of it. When I was 19 I tried ProActiv, it dried out my skin so bad I couldn't move my face. It cracked!
It DID not get rid of my acne. At about the same time of 19 my acne was different. It wasn't pimples, but under the skin bumps. They never became a head or surfaced, it felt like grains of sand on my forehead. I have learned that this is black heads.

I tried other products and nothing worked well enough for me to continue. I got my birth control out at 20. A couple months later and my face started clearing up. THEN I got pregnant. So my acne came back and in FULL force. I never had acne when I was pregnant with Avery. 
It was BAD. The worst it's ever been for sure. 

Within 2 months of having Emerson my face started clearing up. My chest was completely clear (it too had the sand like feel) in just a month. Then my face started. At about 2-2.5 months the sand was gone, but I still had some breakouts. 

I received the Clarifying Activator in the mail at this time and couldn't wait to get started with it. It smells like apples and is so nice! You just squirt it onto a cotton pad and rub it on your face. It feels cool and tingly, but feels good. 
My face started clearing up. I had 2 huge breakouts right when I got this on my chin and temple, they were clusters of like 10-15 pimples. This helped to clear them up in just a couple days time! 

I now have scars there on my chin and temple, they're red. I know they'll go away eventually, but I'm self conscious of them. 

My acne was bad, I would NEVER even think of leaving the house without at least some powder on. I was actually depressed by it while I was still on birth control (the birth control made me depressed to begin with). It was bad and I became a homebody. 

I wish I would've found this activator when it first came out. It may have saved me some embarrassment. 

Super has a lot more products to choose from on their site. You can choose by 'condition' or by product. 

Price: Activator is $38 for 4oz. I've been using this daily for 3 weeks now and it's barely even used. I usually put 3-4 squirts on a pad and it's enough!

Overall: *****

*Disclaimer* I received an item directly from Super in exchange for a review. I was not paid to try out these products*
A big thank you goes out to Super for allowing me to review this product and for sponsoring a giveaway
