The Product That Cleared My Acne and Saved My Skin



Before Pic

I had a hard time getting the acne to show up on camera, which was strange since it was so apparent to me in real life!

This was me several months ago during an acne trial for another skincare company. My whole face consisted of clogged pores, pimples and sore spots. I was a wreck and my self-confidence was hanging by a thread. Makeup only seemed to emphasize the spots. I was desperate for a product that worked!

Then I found NCN Skincare- I was saved!!!!

{All Trans Retinol 2%- $58 for 2.5oz

All-trans mean that the stable Retinol, which is a derivative of Vitamin A, actually converts to retinoic acid on the skin. This stable retinol is encapsulated in liposomes which makes it time-released and also makes it non-irritating; even at 2.0%. Cucumber and Comfrey extract have been added to further enhance its non-irritating properties. Is paraben and chemical-free, safe & effective for ALL skin types and has the highest concentration of OTC Retinol at the lowest price

INGREDIENTS
Active Ingredients: Retinol 1% or 2% (Water, Phospholipids, Retinol), 5% Trylagen® PCB.
Other Ingredients: Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Grape Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Corn Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe Leaf Juice, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Polyglyceryl-3 Stearate, Palm Stearic Acid, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Zemea, Cetearyl Alcohol, Vegetable Glycerine, Vitamin E, Cucumber Extract, Elder Flower, Mallow Extract, Comfrey Extract, Xanthan Gum, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Levulinate, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Optiphen.}


Let me start by ranting about other skincare companies out there who only give you one measly ounce of product and refuse to give a percentage of retinol in their product, but want to charge an arm and a leg for it. Being a smart consumer, I want to know what is in my skincare and how it will effect my skin. I also want good ingredients. I found all of that in this one product, at a price that is very affordable!

Week One- My skin was noticeably softer, the spots I had were drying.

Week Two- Some purging of blackheads and clogged pores, minimal dryness.

Week Three- Skin was clearing, few new spots, soft skin.

Week Four (now)- Skin is nearly clear, I do need to moisturize daily, exfoliating is a must, but the resulting skin is fantastic!

I can not say enough positive words for what this product has done for me. I feel like I am the closest I have ever been to having "good" skin. I love that I am not embarassed to be seen without makeup on.

Purchase this amazing product HERE and come back and let me know how it worked for you!!
