My Thoughts:

Sephora sells this kit cheaper ($35), but the product size is smaller. I wouldn’t recommend this product for people who have sensitive skin. I think it’s a bit too harsh. The initial week, my skin was peeling from the dryness. The second week, I noticed a bit of improvement. The third week, the improvement stopped and the peeling came back. I had to stop using it because my skin got too dry to handle.

Cleans deep into pores—dissolving oil, makeup and other impurities—without irritation or overdrying skin. This cleanser does not dry out skin, and it is extremely light and gentle.

Aveda Outer Peace Acne Relief Lotion Review


aveda-outer-peace-acne-relief-lotionAveda Outer Peace Acne Relief Lotion ($40) is part of the Aveda Outer Peace line. It helps clear blemishes—and keep oil under control—while shrinking the look of pores. Balances moisture, so skin’s not overdry or shiny. This lotion contains salicylic acid but it’s not drying like other salicylic acid products. It’s pricey, but a little goes a long.


Aveda Outer Peace Acne Relief Pads Review


aveda-acne-relief-padsAveda Outer Peace Acne Relief Pads ($31.50) is part of the Aveda Outer Peace line. These acne relief pads are great for acne prone skin. It cleanses, exfoliates, unclogs pores—to help wipe out blackheads and prevent new breakouts. There are 50 salicylic acid pads, but I cut them in half to make them last longer. These pads smell great and leave a refreashing feel. It takes a couple of weeks for you to notice a change, so be patient and keep at it.
