Did a lot better Proactive and dermatologist. Already ordered more and won't be going back to dermatologist. Kit costs less than office visit.

I'm 18, and have had relatively mild to moderate acne most of my teenage years. When I first started getting acne, I was using Proactiv. Proactiv was time consuming, hurt my skin, and I would still get breakouts.
For the past year or so, I've been using Exposed, and it (for me) has been extremely effective! I haven't been using it religiously (sometimes once a day, sometimes skipping days) and it has still worked great. I don't have perfect skin, but my blemishes are few and far between. I think this is my fourth kit now. Would like to give a quick example of how effective Exposed is for me. After I ran out my last kit a couple of weeks ago, I was lazy with ordering a new one, and I've payed for it with a large cystic outbreak on my cheek. I have pretty decent skin except for one large, severe spot. Hopped online and ordered this kit (first time getting the big one) and after using it for two days, just two mornings and two nights, I have already seen a huge reduction in the size of my cyst. I can already tell it will be mostly cured by the weekend (and this thing was probably bigger than a dime !!). If I follow the routine to a T, I have no doubt I would have almost flawless skin.
Everybody's skin is different... it's not going to work for everyone. My skin type is very dry, I have pretty mild acne (except for the occasional cystic outbreak a couple of times a year) and my skin reacts to Exposed very well. I'm blessed to have never had to deal with very severe acne. My acne is just bad enough where it can get very noticeable and troublesome for me if left untreated, and Exposed does the trick for me. I chose Exposed over other treatment systems because of the natural ingredients. It feels so much better when putting it on compared to other treatments I've used like proactiv and over-the-counter creams. If you've never used acne treatment like this before, than expect some burning and irritation as your skin gets used to some of the harsher ingredients like the Benzoyl Peroxide. The irritation from Exposed was far less severe for me than it was with Proactiv, and all of the other treatments I've tried. It's also so easy to use. You only need to use water for a couple of products in the line... the rest are just rub on serums. I honestly love how quick and convenient the routine is.
I can't speak for how effective Exposed is for more severe forms of acne, but I know for my mild to moderate acne, it has been absolutely perfect! I haven't used the probiotic complex long enough to really notice any effects yet, but doing a quick search on the ingredients will reveal that it should be a great addition to any acne-fighting regimen!

I have suffered from acne for years and this product changed all that. After 2 months of daily use my face is clear, smooth and brighter. I have used so many products and this by far is the world's best. Am so glad I stumbled into it on Google search.

The base kit works well but this a very thorough kit and works faster. It makes your skin feel much better using everything. The microderm scrub and clarifying mask are very worth it. The scrub clears away dead skins cells and the mask has charcoal that absorbs excess oil. The probiotic complex also helps you get the necessary vitamins and minerals for a healthy complexion if you are lacking. After using many other products that were too harsh or just didn't work i couldn't recommend this more. For the reviews saying they broke out after using it, this is normal. The timeline thing even says it will get worse before it gets better, as the impurities deep in your skin come out. My advice is to use this as instructed and eat a clean diet and your skin will be glowing.

If your acne is due purely to topical issues, I think this product would probably be great for you. However the location and type of acne I have points to hormonal issues. I am currently in treatment by a naturopath for this with some probiotics and vitamins, so I still needed a topical treatment. I spent years doing the harsh prescription treatments that only worked for a while, and found the most success with the oil cleansing method (google it) in combination with hormonal birth control methods. Since coming off the pill, the acne has gotten worse for the last year.
Now that you understand the context, it may be easier to understand why this product just isn't working for me, and why it may not work for you. if your issue is hormones, a topical treatment just isn't going to do the job.
That said, I do like the products. They are gentle but effective, and the kit has a full lineup of products you need to keep things in check. I also like that the line is free of a lot of chemical ingredients I object to. And as someone who spent a lot of time making her own skincare products, I appreciate the elements of nature used to compliment the chemical ingredients. It really does seem like the best of both worlds.
I recommend buying this product directly through the website. You get a discount by starting a membership with them, but after ordering your first kit, you will need to change the settings so it doesn't autodraft your account every other month. I found that the products lasted me 3 months with use 2x daily. If you go directly through the company, you will receive much better service than if you use an intermediary like Amazon. When I had my account autodrafted, I was able to have the transaction canceled the same day and received both a phone call and an email within the hour.
So, to conclude, I do believe in the products, but you can't expect them to work miracles if your real issue lies beneath the surface.

So far so good! I have a lot of blackheads on my nose and made them less visible...this skincare product made my skin smooth which makes my foundation a lot easier to put on...no need for face primers anymore!

I started getting acne as I got into my late 20's and early 30's. I tried several different products that helped some but none completely. I heard about Exposed about a year and a half ago, tried it, and never looked back. Easy to use, smells better than a lot of other acne products. And I haven't had one pimple since I started using it. I have very sensitive skin, and none of the products have irritated my skin at all. You'll run out of some product before others, so after a while I order extra toners, facial cleansers and acne treatment serums and slow down the automatic pack shipment.

I have suffered with moderate acne since my late teens. I have been on lots of prescribed topical creams, oral and topical antibiotics, and I even took Accutane. I was clear for several years after Accutane and then my acne slowly started to resurface. However, it was mild and I was able to keep it under control with topical benzoyl peroxide and topical antibiotics for the past few years. Unfortunately, it recently started to worsen. My dermatologist offered me spironolactone and birth control pills because he thought my acne was hormonal. I had taken both in the past prior to Accutane without any positive effect on my acne. So I declined both, but agreed to go on oral doxycycline. The course of doxycycline was brief as I developed esophagitis from it within a few weeks. I then continued on my same regimen that was no longer working: topical Benzamycin (benzoyl peroxide with erythromycin) and a glycolic wash. I continued to break out and was about to make an appointment to go back to the dermatologist. Before I made my appointment, I decided to google "Acne Treatment" one last time. Somehow I stumbled onto Exposed. It has been one week and my mild-moderate acne is gone with ZERO irritation by the way. Within a few days, my face was clear! Exposed is amazing and I am so happy with this product! Anyone who has suffered from acne knows how it affects your self esteem. Thank you Exposed! So thrilled that this worked for me! Give it a try-you have nothing to lose! PS. This is a legit review. I read a lot about fake Exposed reviews and I am glad I ignored those claims :)

It helped clear up my skin very well as promised. No irritation or discomfort. Great product.

The order arrived within 3-5 days of when It was purchased- I was pleased with the shipping speed. So far I love the kit. I do not have severe acne but I persistently get breakouts all over. I also mess with them which proves to make them worse so I lose twice! So far the kit has helped heal my existing acne and is starting to clear my skin! My husband even noticed. There are no harsh chemical smells and no stinging has occured for me. I have used the products for about 1 week, following the directions exactly & am happy with the results so far. For the kit and all the products, the $100 is worth it because each item separately would cost more anyway. Plus since I use all the products as directed there is no way to determine which one is helping the most. Good luck and God bless.

I tried this product about 2 months ago. I am still using it and have found my skin to be the most clear that it has been in a long time. I only have mild acne but it is still just a devasting to get when you are used to clear skin. None of the expensive products worked to me. But the simple natural ingredients in this product works the absolute best! I never write reviews... But I had to this time! It's an amazing product and it works within the first week of use. I have not any substantial breakout since using it. U will not be disappointed.

I do not use this product myself, but my grandson swears by it! I agreed to buy it for him, so he's satisfied on many levels.

I should probably be more consistent with this product than I have been. But I take the pills and already seeing results with no new acne, and the old red ones fading away! I'm happy with this product and definitely buying a new set once this one is done!
I absolutely love how they use natural products and it doesn't irritate my skin, b/c I have very sensitive skin, especially to anything that has alcohol in it. I'd have to say my favorite product is the the black mask, and I love their cleanser and clearing tonic. So easy to use and smells great!
Hope you all enjoy, I can guarantee you it will not make you break out, especially if you're always using their moisturizer!

Love it, great for those of us that are getting large pores as we age. Pricing was good. Only down side was the facial cleaner cap would not stay on tight.

Guys, firstly, One word AMAZING!. I will definitely recommend to anyone looking for good acne products. First month of use was a major improvement on decreased acne, off course complimented by improved diet. Stayed away from Dairy for a little which helped. I don't eat meat nor fried foods. My problem was water intake. This Product works great as whole not single use of each whenever you feel like it. The moisturizer application after all the other steps tingled a bit, so barely used it. Better than their competitor proa****. Tried and Tested! Love it and will continue to use it. On my second set.

I have had the worst acne since my teen and was so embarrassed by it. I have tried many products, they are either dry out my skin or the breakout comes again after some time. When I first bought this ultimate kit, I have to admit that I was skeptical. But After two weeks of using this kit, I noticed a significant difference in the size and redness of my breakouts. It definitely helps to keep them under control. Now my skin is very clean than ever. I would recommend Exposed products to anyone whom has been fighting acne especially to who shouldn't have it anymore.

I had beautiful skin until I was a senior in high school. Then, I begin to have really bad acne and tried every product on the market. I visited a dermatologist and tried over the counter medicine as well. I have VERY sensitive skin so I always had to be careful what I chose. I happened upon Exposed Skin Care after Googling the best reviews and decided to give it a try. I bought the starter kit with the cleanser, toner, acne treatment, clear pore serum, and moisturizer. I also started taking the probiotic and WOW!! The results I have from this product are better than I have ever seen before. The price is kind of high but they last a good amount of time, they offer coupons and special deals, and you can buy any product individually if you use one faster than the others. I recommend this product to anyone that knows me because they know how much I struggled before and now I have the pretty skin that I used to have.

It is a little more expensive than the Basic Kit and Expanded Kit, but believe me it's worth it, in my opinion! I love all of the products, but my favorite isn't offered in the other kits and that is the Clarifying Mask! I used to use it only once a week, but I've recently started using the mask twice a week and WOW i can REALLY see a difference in the blackheads on and around my nose. I used to have pretty bad cystic acne, the big painful ones, and they mostly broke out on my cheeks, but thanks to FINALLY finding these products all I really have to worry about are the scars left behind, which the kit is fading, but now i'm figuring out how to tackle those stubborn blackheads! Also i love the Derm X Cloth, there is nothing really special about it and im sure you could find an exfoliating cloth somewhere else, but it comes in all of the kits and i really enjoy using it. It really gets all the dead skin off and my face feels SO smooth afterwards! Overall, GREAT, AMAZING, WONDERFUL products! I just wish i would have found the Exposed Skincare Kit's years ago!

I am 35 years old and have had acne problems my whole life. I used proactiv for about a decade and it recently stopped working for me. I have been using exposed for the last 2 months and I love it. It is not just an acne product it is also a skin product. My skin is rejuvanated, glowing and acne free. I recommend buying the ultimate kit to start so you can try all of the products and decide what products you like. My favorite is the mask and the clear pore serum. The probiotic complex is also a great way to fight the acne internally instead of the prescription anti-biotics my dermatologist prescribed.

its the only acne treatment that has cleared my face up. It takes a while but I love it. I was disappointed that they didn't send the bottle with the pills. Only problem I had.

This product is really effective against acne. However, I have really oily skin and the moisturizer isn't enough to help control the oil production so I use additional products to help control the oil.

My daughter is 13, and she started having acne issues about a year ago. We tried several products, but she has sensitive skin and they were too harsh. I researched and discovered Exposed Skincare products, and they have really helped her complexion tremendously. Her two favorite Exposed Skincare products are the "Clarifying Mask" and "Probiotic Complex".
