Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar - if You Dare to Go Bare!

It is that time of year to be baring all - especially in this 100 degree heat that came out of no where this weekend.

If you are a bit afraid to bare it all because you have a bit of back acne or bumpy arms, have no fear. Clinique's new Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar will have your skin in tip top shape to bare, well, as much as you dare.

Both my 16 year old son and (almost) 13 year old daughter are at that age where those pesky pimples are popping up on their shoulders and the top of their back. My daughter refers to it as bacne - a new term for me. Justin has not been as faithful in using the bar (though he love the Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam), but when he did, I noticed that the bumps were barely visible. Caci has been using it everyday in the shower and  her results are even better. She is not afraid to bare her shoulders as she was earlier in the season, and confidence is everything, especially at her age.

This bar is lasting a long time too. After using, simply put it back in the case so the showers water does not "melt" the soap faster than it should. 

No matter what your age, body acne is not fun. Try this out and let me know your results.

Clinique Acne Solutions Cleansing Bar is available for $12.50 at your local Clinique counter or online at Clinique.com. Check out the rest of the Acne Solutions line while you are there.
