Relogy Skin Care::Giveaway!

So I forgot my own rule about not treating the holiday season as one giant Eat Fest stretching from Nov.15th-ish to Jan 1st. And I ate sugar. Lots of it. The massive sugary gluten binge coupled with wearing a baseball cap on my sweaty hikes caused a very unattractive acne breakout on my huge fivehead, right before all the family paparazzi events*flash* I needed a quick fix.

Before using Relogy

Sure, I could have tried a myriad of natural acne remedies but I am impatient with my vanity. Relogy (rel-oh-jee: vegan/cruelty-free) had sent me the Dual Action Treatment Foam, Natural Skin Balancing Lotion with Coconut Milk, Targeted Spot Treatment and I was willing to give it a try.

 

Relogy did exactly what I hoped, cleared my complexion and visibly reduced bumps and redness without irritating my skin. My acne was not cystic, so your results may vary.

I applied 1 pump of the cleanser to moist skin and massaged it into problem areas, targeting my forehead (avoiding the eye area) left it on my skin on for 10 minutes, then rinsed with warm water. The cleanser did a fine job of removing the mineral powder make-up I wear but I used a separate eye make-up remover. Then, I gave my face a quick pat dry and applied the balancing lotion, which moisturized without being greasy or heavy. Last, I used the spot treatment on the most problematic bumps.

Day 5 (overcast day so my skin looks darker in this pic)

Day 7 of Relogy treatments

Pros:

  • Vegan
  • Cruelty Free
  • Cleared acne in 5-7 days
  • Reduced redness
  • Improved skin texture
  • Convenient pump and rollerball packaging
  • Mild fragrance (no added fragrance)

Cons:

  • Parabens/SLS

I asked the company if the parabens and Sodium Laurel Sulfate were necessary for the product to perform and this is the response I received:

 Dear Cobi,

 We are so happy to hear that you are reviewing the Relogy® Acne Treatment, and that it has been working for you!

 Thank you, too, for your inquiry about the Relogy ingredients, and it is a great question that you ask! As thoughtful product developers, these are the kinds of questions that we ask all of the time.

 Relogy has a 100% vegan commitment, first and foremost, but also strives to incorporate as many natural ingredients as possible into our products, at least 95%. The challenge really comes with the over-the-counter drug products (our foam acne treatment and the spot treatment), which have to be held to strict FDA regulations and anti-microbial standards, so the microbes do not form in the products through-out the expiration date, and Parabens can be used as an optimal way of preserving the product for safe use.  Microbial content is a huge challenge for natural and organic products, and especially with acne bacteria at play–we want to be very careful. And, we want to provide truly effective products for our customers. You may notice that many 100% natural products are not also OTC drugs. As far as SLS, we believe this to be safe to reduce oil on skin. All of our research has led us to conclude that the negative information about SLS to be unverified. As always, however, we encourage consumers to look at each ingredient to evaluate what they think is best for themselves and their family!

 As a company, we’ve made it our mission to challenge ourselves to go further than any other acne product to bridge the gap towards a healthier, gentler way to combat acne, while maintaining results; we want our customers to succeed!

 We love naturals because we believe strongly in their effectiveness, when chosen wisely, and for the proper effect. After all, it is truly the naturals in Relogy that provide the anti-inflammatory and soothing effects, and are the big secret to why it’s great for acne-prone skin. (Shhhh, the other acne companies haven’t realized this yet!)

 Meanwhile, at Relogy, we are continually tracking advancements in natural preservatives and other ingredients for the highest degree of effectiveness and safety. There are some interesting things coming in the future, and we can’t wait until they are truly proven and available for us to incorporate into Relogy.

 Please let us know your thoughts! We truly value your comments, ideas and suggestions–as a young company, we are all about your feedback.

 Kindest Regards,

 The Customer Service Team at Relogy

 

There is no substitute for being mindful of what we eat, how we treat our bodies and not causing breakouts in the first place. When I am doing my best, powering down green smoothies for breakfast and drinking plenty of water, my skin is clear and bright. But, if I need to clear up a breakout quickly, I would use Relogy again.

    My favorite acne fighting tip is tea tree oil! It works wonders for the skin and help to dry and clear up acne/blemishes. I like to add a little to my moisturizer or add a few drop to a cotton ball and apply it to problem areas.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. OMG!!! This sounds wonderful! I hope I win! I love using lemon juice on my skin! It works wonders when my skin is acting out… Pure, fresh, simple lemon. Cut a slice and rub the juice on the trouble area less than a week and my skin is glowing!

  6. I like to use a gentle exfoliator 1-2 times a week and a toner after taking off my makeup to make sure I didn’t miss any. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  7. I followed on FB(snarky.malarkey)Twitter(uf_fda) and youtube (jelli)

  8. I subscribe to you you tube and follow them on Fb and twitter…I love Tea Tree Oil as a spot treatment for acne!

  9. Gabriela Ramos says:

    I usually use Mario Badescu products and they really help!

  10. I have been fighting acne my whole life – I have tried everything – recently I read that nutmeg is good for relieving inflammation. I have been using honey as an antibacterial mask, so I decided to mix the two – I use a teaspoon of ground nutmeg with 2 tablespoons of raw honey – it’s like a miracle! Not only does it made my skin look better -it smells wonderful! Aroma therapy and clear skin!

  11. ps – your skin looks gorgeous!

  12. I subscribed to your YouTube channel and liked Relogy on facebook.

    Consistency is the best key to fighting acne. It took years for me to get mine under control and probably the best thing I used was Cetaphil as a cleanser. I was using harsh treatments and cleansers which just ended up irritating my skin and inflaming the acne. My daughter is now suffering from acne caused by steroids for a chronic condition and I’m looking for anything that might help her.

  13. You are already on my Nutrition and Fitness Interest List on FB. I just added you to YouTube as well

  14. Double cleansing is a really important way that I fight my acne! I use makeup removing wipes, and then a cleanser afterwards. That way I know I got everything off my skin before bedtime.

  15. Thanks for sharing the information about Relogy! I had not heard of them…. Worth trying them out. I’ve only used melaleuca oil and aloe on my breakouts but it can take a while.

  16. I just wash my face 2-3 times a day and drink plenty of water and try not to put anything on my face that is old

  17. Keep visine in your beauty kit. After a hard night you may have red eyes. This can age your appearance. Put a little visine in to clear that up. You can use it to clear up acne too. Dab some on a pimple and let dry. You will have better skin in no time.

  18. One of the natural treatments for acne is the application of tea tree oil or a product containing tea tree oil. It is a natural antibiotic and helps to kill any germs or infections on the skin surface. A drop or two on a cotton ball dipped in witch hazel applied to the skin is all it takes.
