My son, Kyle, started high school this year. High school. Wow. How did that even happen? It seems like only yesterday I was getting him ready for his very first day of school. Now, rather than being the little boy who would snuggle me for hours on end, he is a 5'10" young man, who probably wouldn't be caught dead sitting in his Mommy's lap.
Along with growing up comes lots of changes. In addition to my son growing 6 inches over the summer alone, he has also started...maturing. You know. Voice deepening, body hair becoming more pronounced, and of course, there's acne.
Kyle really hates it when his skin breaks out. He doesn't have severe acne that requires a prescription, but he does experience the fairly regular appearance of pimples. Usually, they wind up making their appearance on his nose, chin, and forehead. He gets pretty embarrassed, and has even tried covering a zit with a band-aid so people wouldn't notice it. Sadly, that never, ever works!
Recently, we decided to give X Out, from the makers of Proactiv, a try. X Out is a simple to use, gentle acne treatment that is free of sulfates and parabens. This is a HUGE plus, since I try my best to purchase "cleaner" products for my family. It is also dermatologist tested, and has been proven to be safe for all skin types.
The X Out kit that we received contained the following products:
Kyle couldn't wait to give these products a try. He had actually heard amazing things about the X Out line from friends, so he had very high hopes. These products actually arrived while he was experiencing a bit of a breakout. Perfect timing, right?
Kyle has been using X Out for a little over a month now. He absolutely loves how easy it is to use, too! Just one step is all he needs for cleaner, clearer skin. He keeps the X Out Wash In Treatment in the shower, so it's easy for him to remember to use it every day. Then he washes a second time in the evening.
He also uses the Cleansing Body Bar, which has greatly reduced breakouts on his back and shoulders. And we all know how annoying body acne can be. That's one thing about being a teen that I sure don't miss at all!
For added protection against breakouts, Kyle applies the X Out Shine Control. This can be worn day or night, and helps keep those nasty, pore-clogging oils under control. The Shine Control, like the other X Out products, is very gentle to the skin and isn't harsh or drying.
If he does experience a pimple or 2, the X Out Spot Corrector goes to work in just 10 minutes. Just dab a little on the affected area, wait 10 minutes, and wash off. I was amazed by how well the Spot Corrector worked. It truly did help calm the redness and irritation caused by my son's acne in no time flat! definitely made a huge difference not only in the appearance of Kyle's skin, but in his confidence, too!
Here's Kyle, my high school Freshman, talking about why he loves X Out:
Overall, we're definitely quite impressed with the X Out system. My son has fairly sensitive skin, and these products haven't caused any irritation, redness, or dryness. In fact, his skin is clearer and softer now than it has been since puberty kicked in.
Would YOUR teen benefit from X Out?
If you'd like to give your teen the gift of clearer skin, you can learn more on the X Out website.
Trying X Out is totally risk-free, too, since they offer a 60 day, no questions asked, money-back guarantee!
