Pairing the right acne wash with other products can be a recipe for disaster. Finding an existing system that combines acne-fighting products eliminates the potential of irritating the skin with ingredients that don’t play nice together. RevitaClear is an anti-acne system with three products, including an acne wash, to help clear the skin.
RevitaClear provides you with a cleanser, acne treatment gel, and a moisturizer to deliver acne medication and hydrating agents in order to erase acne and prevent pimples. The RevitaClear cleanser is the first step in the treatment and it uses walnut shell and pumice to exfoliate the skin. The exfoliation removes impurities like dirt and excess oil. The cleanser also uses benzoyl peroxide (BPO) as an antibacterial agent.
Once the skin is cleansed, the RevitaClear Acne Treatment delivers 5% BPO, tea tree oil, aloe extract, and chamomile extract in a gel. The gel dries into your skin to help reduce acne. Not that this is a big deal, but RevitaClear really emphasizes that they include a whopping 5% benzoyl peroxide and studies report that this dose is not any better than 2.5%. In fact, higher doses of BPO increase the risk of experiencing skin irritation.
The last step for the system is the RevitaClear Moisturizer. The moisturizer calms the skin down with jojoba seed oil, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed collagen, and hydrolyzed elastin. This formula layers the skin with these soothing agents to keep the skin hydrated.
The primary problem with RevitaClear is that the entire system really only has one acne fighting agent, benzoyl peroxide. BPO does help treat acne, but with a three product treatment we expect more. Buying any benzoyl peroxide-based product alongside a moisturizer will be just as effective as RevitaClear. Again, it is not that RevitaClear is bad it just isn’t really worth the money.
