Struggle with Acne Part 2

You can read about the Natural Products I used for clearing my skin of acne and black spots in my previous post.

Here I will discuss the over the counter medicinal products I used.

Clean & Clear

You have to use the whole regimen, cleanser, toner, and scrub. I used it for few years yet I didn't get any difference in my skin.


As with Clean & Clear you have to use the whole regimen, but even after using it, my marks and acne stayed.


I've used Melacare on and off for a few years now. It makes the spots disappear for a while but once you stop using it, the spots and black marks reappear. Apparently it thins the skin and if you go out in the sun without a strong sunblock, you will get a burnt face with blacker than ever marks. And Melacare is not recommended for prolonged use as it contains steroids.

Have any of you used these products? Whats the verdict? Like? Did not like?


  1. My acne didn't clear up until I was well into my 30's. I still get the occasional pimple but for the most part it cleared on its own as I got older. I scars left behind really don't go away, they fade a little over time but nothing is going to make them disappear. I just use make up to cover any blemishes now.

    1. Thank you Mary. I'm in my fifties, so I guess I have to learn to live with it now!

  2. I also have scars from acne which I cover with make up.

  3. I've heard Clearasil is a good product for Acne.
