Acne Free!

So if you ladies read my blog, you know that I've been using the Clinique acne solutions kit. I did finish the small kit and repurchased the regular sized products. Ever since then, my face has been under control and acne free with the exception of "the time of the month." I'm just about done with my Clinique acne free solutions moisturizer which I use as a spot treatment for the little pimples I get now and then. & so I wanted to try other products. I looked through my drawer and I found my e.l.f. zit zapper and e.l.f. mineral blemish powder that I purchased but never really used. So I started using them when I break out and I wanted to share my thoughts about them.
I actually use them together. I first apply the e.l.f. zit zapper that has a little rolling ball that rolls some of the liquid product out and then I apply the e.l.f. mineral blemish powder on top of the wet area where I just applied the e.l.f. zit zapper. So right after I put the zit zapper on, before it dries up, I put the blemish powder on top so it sticks to my face.
I've got to say, I was pleasantly surprised of how effective these two products were on my acne. The first time, I used these two on a pimple that I had & I put them on my pimple before I slept. The next morning, my pimple significantly shrank in size. So whenever I break out or feel a pimple forming, I use these two combined and it works really well. I personally don't know how effective each product is on its own but I did see good reviews on both products and you can find those reviews online. I know my friend tried one of these products or both separately and she told me they don't do anything for her. So I was surprised that they worked for me, but I do use them together and not separately.

Here are the ingredients on both products:
E.L.F. zit zapper: Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Camphor.
E.L.F. mineral blemish powder:
What do you ladies think?
Have you tried these products before?

That's really smart of you to put on the powder right after the zit zapper so that it sticks!

Thanks so much for the great review! These two products sound like they really work. I'll have to keep them in mind for next time...I sometimes develop cystic acne and it's such a pain to get rid of it >.<

I'm always so skeptical about elf because it's just so cheap!
But then time after time, I'm surprised at how well it actually does work
I'll have to try this out on my next elf order :) Thanks for the review

That is actually a great idea! I have a Proactiv Repairing Treatment and a Bare Minerals Heal & Conceal acne powder thing. So, I might try what you did with the powder over the liquid. I hope it works!!! Thanks for the brilliant idea!
