She has really nice breasts and is generally very cute. Any guy would jump her whether or not she has two whiteheads on her jawline.

LOL at "a young woman recounts her terrible experience of going shopping whilst spotty".

If THAT's a terrible experience, how the hell are most people here ever supposed to leave their homes in daylight?

Anyone with persistent moderate+ acne however has no right to get all frustrated at such products and commercials for giving them false hope. The simple fact of the matter is that these products are designed for the vast majority of "acne sufferers," and the vast majority of "acne sufferers" only ever get a few spots every now and then. People with persistent moderate+ acne simply are not a part of the intended market. It would be like someone with hypothyroidism getting mad at SlimFast or Weightwatchers food products for not helping them to lose weight; they have a MEDICAL condition that requires a specialist, not a diet. In the same way persistent moderate+ acne is a MEDICAL condition that requires a specialist in the form of a dermatologist, not a moisturizer. It only isn't perceived as a medical condition because it isn't life-threatening or even directly threatening to your health, despite all the scarring both physical and psychological it can incur.

If you have persistent moderate+ acne it's pointless to get mad at these products and commercials because they usually DO work for most people with "acne" because most people with "acne" DO have acne that is mild and controllable enough for a mere cleanser to give them "visibly clearer skin in 3 days". People with persistent moderate+ acne cannot get mad at a commercial product that doesn't work for them because they have a statistically exceptional PHYSIOLOGICAL disorder that a technically "cosmetic" skincare product cannot significantly address. In fact they would do well to bypass topical treatments altogether, including BP, and go straight to the internal cause of their serious problem.

If these products don't work for you, you SHOULD take Accutane, Diane-35/Yasmin/Sprinoloactone, or employ an effective topical regimen. Anything less is an inadequate minimal method of control from the outside, not the inside where it counts. If you want to stick with antibiotics good for you but the odds are overwhelmingly against you that you'll be any clearer after your Propionibacterium acnes mutates into highly resistant super-strains, as always happens sooner or later.

Headturner is right...she has 3 measly spots! and then to top it off the spots are still actually there but just plastered in make up when the camera zooms in, theres a Garnier advert with a blonde girl with really short hair and her skin is perfect and it says 'too old for teenage skin' sooooooo annoying as you just know shes a top model and is perfect in every way, why cant they just use a person that actually does have spots because the people they r aiming the cream at wont want to buy with all these top models advertising it because they know that the advert doesnt prove a thing!

They don't use "real life people" because their products are useless and do not work!!!!! evil.gif they cannot show evidence of it working e.g. proper before and after pictures because there would be no effect!

they do offer a guarantee though dont they?

and be fair, without these companies formulating new acne washes we would never find one that works well for us. Its just supply and demand - although i agree they need to change their advertising - maybe stop commercialisation full stop. You have never seen a BP cream on TV being advertised (maybe the commercial brands eg c&c/oxy but not the good ones)

yeah it is but all they really care about is ££££££££££££! once they have managed to shift their product and have got ur cash they couldn't care less! eusa_hand.gif i would like to see a money back guarantee, don't think clearasil would be too pleased with this idea! It annoys me how they promise u will have clear skin if u use all our products with new formula!!! same old stuff just shiny packaging most of the time! its all a con eusa_liar.gif

If you think that's bad, you should see the Clean & Clear treatment gel ad. They claim it'll get rid of the spot overnight. But in the ad, the girl that uses it doesn't even have any spots in the first place!!! and yet she's staring in the mirror, complaining about a spot that isn't there!!! Those crazy ad makers....

I haven't used the new Clearasil products, but my skin has improved no end since I started using Biactol Clearasil Skin-Clearing Gel about a month ago, so I'd definitely recommend that.

I think they should do an ad similar to those nicotine patch(?) ads where the woman is giving up smoking and they "checked on her" every week - with several people and compare the results.
