Kellett Skincare – Acne Free

Posted by Henna in More Than Beauty

We love skincare sets because they make sure that products go together, and they’re perfect for travelling with.

The latest to come my way is a system for adult acne plagued skin which has its own needs – adults want to make sure that the products they use won’t cause wrinkles and at the same time, they want to be acne free. If you’re over the age of 18 and suffer from adult onset acne, then this might be the system for you.

Kellett skincare goes to the next level by being free of parabens, synthetic fragrances and dyes, and any kinds of petrochemicals.

It’s also formulated by a doctor (Dr. Lisa Kellett!) and so it contains the best ingredients for ideal skin care. Dr. Kellett studied at the prestigious University of Toronto med school, and specializes in dermatology. Her adult patients kept asking for products that could help acne and wrinkles, and so she created something herself!

The system works because it is so well thought out. It contains a polishing cleanser – with little scrubbing beads, this is great for skin with acne, because it’s often oily and could use a good scrub to get rid of dry and dead skin cells as well as scarring. It also contains a gel with 5% benzyl peroxide – proven to kill the germs that cause acne. Finally, it has a moisturizing gel. The oil free hydrating gel improves skin’s moisture retention while helping to reduce blemishes, calm inflammation and fade pigmentation.

You can pick up a trial kit containing a 10 ml size of each of the three products for $75 from the Kellett website ( Typical results take 8 weeks, but we saw a difference within the first 2 weeks of use, and we’re sure that you will too. If you’re unsure whether the system is for you, then check out the before and after pictures.

The Clear Skin Regimen Kit, which features full sizes of 4 products from the entire product line (it also includes an SPF 30 spray) retails for $220, and may be on the pricy side especially since we’re just talking about acne products here. But, if you usually buy your skincare at the department store and want something that will really work for acne, then this is definitely for you, because department store lines are lacking in that area. I also recommend the kit if you want to toss all your skincare and want a regimen from scratch.
