After a learning curve, it's a miracle product
So I've been using this product for three years now, and I've finally figured out how to use it to go from a chest covered in acne (mostly between my pecs) and a back covered in acne from shoulder's edge to shoulder's edge to one small pimple a month.
So when I first started using the product, I had nothing else in my regimen. I had gone a few years using nothing but soap because (a) I'd given up, and (b) there wasn't anything new to try anyway. Within the first few months, my acne went down about 80%. It was huge. Every morning I would wake up excited to see how much more acne had been decimated by KAVI. I also bought their glycolic acid mask to help with healing the existing scarring. All was well, but it was about a year into the KAVI regimen before I began to realize that things were no longer improving. For every pimple that would get zapped, a new one would pop up somewhere else. Being stubborn, I figured I just needed to keep at it, and I used Coral KAVI daily for another 18 months with no changes to the regimen or to the improvement rate. That's when I had the game-changing light bulb moment.
I have avoided massages for years because I had one a long time ago, and the oil gave me literally like 100 giant zits on my chest and back within hours of walking out of the spa. Well, a few months ago, I had an opportunity to hit an awesome spa in the city, and I figured, what the hey, letâ€™s see what happens. As much as I had the urge to scrub my body for thirty minutes with Coral KAVI after I finished my massage, for some reason I just didnâ€™t. I just let it go and waited to see what happened. Guess what? Nothing happened. Canâ€™t say why, but I just decided to let my skin go with no cleansing for a few days (still took daily showers, but nothing but water on my body). Guess what? My skin improved dramatically. It all started coming together for me. All those times when I would get a pimple on the back of my neck and then go agro with salicylic acid for the next three days and then get eight more pimples in the same area. I was overusing product. Fellow acne sufferers, hear me. You need to go easy on this stuff. Iâ€™ve only used Coral KAVI once on my back in the past two months or so since my massage, and itâ€™s better than ever.
So thatâ€™s my story and my review. Iâ€™ve emailed to KAVI over the years and theyâ€™ve told me to reduce usage, but I didnâ€™t know that meant reduce it to once per month! For the record, I asked the spa what oil they used and they said shea butter, in case any of you are wondering. There were also two other oils, avocado and something else you eat (canâ€™t remember). Good luck everyone!
