“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CLn Skin Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
I have terrible skin. Its a fact. Ever since I was a little kid I have had terrible blotchy skin. This time of year is especially bad for my skin. I don’t know if it’s an allergy or just because of the hot weather, but every year during June and July my skin is a mess. My most problematic areas are my chin, legs and a bit of redness on my cheeks (of-my face… in case you thought differently). I have seen dermatologists, tried countless products and never found anything that helped.
I have recently been given the opportunity to test out CLn Facial Cleanser and CLn Bodywash, which I received for review, and am excited to give it a try. I will admit that I am a bit of a skeptic when it comes to facial products (mostly because I have a drawer in my bathroom filled with products that don’t work for me). However, I am very hopeful that the CLn Skin Care line will work, as their products are dermatologist-developed and clinically tested to help with difficult skin problems including eczema, acne, itchy-skin, sensitive skin conditions and infection all while aiding to reduce body odor. It also has received the Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association, which tells me that this actually works!
For the next 7 days, I plan to bare it all in my Bare-Naked Diary (bare-naked as in “no make-up”… Don’t worry, I’m not getting THAT personal with you). I will let you know all of my honest experiences with CLn Facial Cleanser and CLn Body Wash.
Day 1: Today was my first day using the CLn Facial Cleanser. I first used it in the morning after working out, and it left my skin feeling really clean and took that sweaty feeling right away. It was a tough workout on a very hot day, so I was impressed it could leave me feeling so fresh afterwards. The instructions on both of the CLn bottles say that you must rinse your face and then put the cleanser on and leave it there for 30 seconds before washing it off. This felt like a long time with the cleanser on my face, but I did it!
Day 2: This morning I used the CLn body wash for the first time. I will admit that standing in the bathroom covered in lathered body wash for 30 seconds before hoping in the shower felt incredibly awkward! I did it though! The body wash did leave me feeling nice and clean and I liked that it didn’t leave me feeling as through I had soap residue anywhere. I also used the CLn Facial Cleanser after my workout and before bed.
Day 3: I think I solved the problem about having to wait 30 seconds with the facial cleanser on. I have been just standing around awkwardly waiting for time to pass. 30 seconds is a long time when you are standing around doing nothing. Today I solved that problem by brushing my teeth during that time! Simple solution!
Day 4: Today I started to notice that my skin is feeling very soft, especially on my checks. I have very dry skin, so this is a good sign to me! While using the CLn Skin Care line, the bottles indicate that it is not necessary to use additional moisturisers, but that you may if you wish. Due to my very dry skin, I have been using my regular moisturiser along with the CLn Facial Cleanser, however the softness that I felt today is beyond what I typically experiance from using the moisturiser and my former face wash.
Day 5: Today I noticed that some of the redness and blotchiness on my checks is starting to even out. It gives my skin a very smooth texture that I haven’t had before. I like it!
Day 6: I really like how my skin looks right after using CLn Facial Cleanser. It has a very healthy glow, that let’s me know that even though I still have problems areas, it is starting to work.
Day 7: It’s been one week of using CLn Facial Cleanser and CLn bodywash and so far I am happy with the results! I still have some problem areas on my chin, but I can tell that they are improving! My checks have a smooth texture and a lot of the blotchiness is gone! As I said above, June and July are always tough months for my skin, so to see any improvement during these months is a huge deal for me! I am going to continue to use CLn Facial Cleanser and CLn Body Wash for two more weeks and will give you an update each week!
Week 2 Update: This week was a particularly bad week for my skin (let’s just say it not the greatest time of month for it). I had a bad breakout but it cleared up much faster then I would normally expect it to. I think that using the CLn Facial Cleanser has a lot to do with that.
Week 3 Update: While taking a look at my “before” and “after” photos, you may not see a startling TV worthy transformation that you might expect from this kind of post. However, I promised the “bare-naked” truth, so here it is! After using CLn Facial Cleanser and CLn Bodywash for 3 weeks, I am really pleased with the progress that I have seen. Usually this time of year my skin would have huge “welt-looking” blotches all over my cheeks. Since using CLn I haven’t noticed any of that. My skin also feels so healthy and clean after using it, even after an intense run in this hot summer weather. It also leaves my skin very soft despite being such a deep clean. For me, these are kind of huge results that make me feel like my 3 weeks with CLn has been a success!
