Review: Neostrata Saves Acne Prone & Oily Skin!

 Oily Skin Solution: 

 Neostrata is a dermatology developed skincare line recommended and highly regarded by skin care experts around the world. The Oily Skin Solution is a liquid solution, with 8% glycolic acid that treats oily and acne prone skin. This is a miracle product. My stubborn micro-comedones on my forehead have disappeared, my oily skin is under control, looks more healthy and exfoliated, and is much more smoother! I did not experience any irritation, tingling or burning with this product! I cleanse, rinse, apply with my fingers to my chest, neck, face and follow with Dermalogica Active Moist+ Solar Defense Booster SPF 30. 
Clear clogged pores and remove excess oil from oily, acne-prone complexions with a skin toner solution formulated with Glycolic Acid for non-sensitive skin.”-Neostrata
The Dermatologist developed solution removes excess sebum from oily and acne-prone skin, contains 8% Glycolic Acid, plumps, hydrates, smoothes fine lines, wrinkles, helps clear pores, fragrance–free and ideally for non-sensitive skin. After using this solution, I have a very smooth canvas to work with prior to applying foundation. My skin does not feel tight, but light and hydrated (not heavy or oily). A absolute must for oily skin types. I suggest anyone with oily skin or acne try this product. Your skin will feel clean for once and not dirty by noon. Also perfect for those living in humid climates.

Antibacterial Facial CleanserA Lady J Favorite!

A light foaming cleanser that, “Reduces potentially problematic bacteria on the skin.”-Neostrata
The cleanser contains 0.3% Triclosan (anti-bacterial), Gluconolactone (a PHA offers anti-aging benefits), soothing chamomile, Pro-vitamin B5 (panthenol), fragrance-free, soap free and Dermatologist-Tested. It is suitable for all skin types including acne, rosacea and rinses off easily. It left my skin feeling very clean, comfortable (not tight), soft, and smooth (without a film). I experienced no irritation with this product.  Perfect for removing makeup. 
Great for skin sensitive to other acne fighting ingredients, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, tea tree oil, and sulfur.  This cleanser is suitable for those using prescription retinoids for acne.  Gluconolactone (a active ingredient in the cleanser ) also provides light exfoliation, hydration, is a anti-oxidant and provides a smoother texture for those using glycolic acid products.  This boosts the results of other products combined with gluconolactone.  I also experienced a brightened complexion.
I would recommend this product for all skin types, especially those struggling with acne or oily skin.
Skin Update October 30,2011:  After continuous use of this cleanser, my skin has been extremely clear!  I can count on one hand the number of tiny pimples I have gotten since using this cleanser.  This is amazing results for my extremely oily skin.  My pores LIKE to clog up.  I had stubborn forehead breakouts that cleared and remained clear.  My cheeks, chin and jaw are clear and smooth!  This is hands down, my favorite acne cleanser.  This cleanser dissolves oil, does not strip skin making it feel tight and uncomfortable.  My skin is noticeably less oily during the day!  No more greasy skin two hours after washing my face.  My skin feels more balanced and clean, even while living in Los Angeles.
