hi,

 

the majority of my skin looks like this:

as you can see, the texture is totally shot thanks to all these bumps and clogged pores.

 

i was reading through the forums and came across the name Paula's Choice as a remedy for my kind of acne.

 

However, when i sent to Seporah recently the lady suggested and gave me samples from the Peter Thomas line, in particular the AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel and a face wash i can't recall at the moment.

 

so my question is, which of the two should i really invest my time and money on, for my specific brand of acne? 

 

thanks!

The Peter Thomas line I've heard works amazing, but it is ungodly expensive. I'm talking $45 for an 8 oz toner. I would look into the Paula's Choice Line first.

Oh of course not. Just pick and try one or two, then incorporate into your routine the ones you like. Both brands are considered high end so you should be okay with either.

 

Just start simple though, your skin is actually pretty good and your acne is quite mild. It should respond well to those products.
