OK, I decided to post a diary on my experience with SAGE skin care. I want to post it because I have heard so many wonderful things about the product and want to give an honest review for you guys to see. I will use these products faithfully for at least 8 weeks and try to update once a week or so.

I have been suffering fron acne since I was 16, I'm 21 now. I have tried everything; Accutane, Minocycline, Tetracycline, Monodox, Benzamycin, Cleocin, Differin, and every over the counter and infomercial product you can name! Needless to say, I know how all of you feel. I don't have little tiny baby acne either, I have "big mothers" as SAGE skin care would refer to them. It's devastating. You don't want to go out, you don't want people to see you without makeup, etc.

So, last week I stopped all topicals and medication. I will continue to take 6g a day of B5, that's it. So, here's my first experience with SAGE:

Last Sunday, I ordered the try me pack for combo skin. I filled out a HUGE profile and submitted that along with my order. The pack was about $57.

Thursday, I recieved my order and WOW!!! There's tons of products. They included a huge packet of directions and helpful tips to clear your skin. The pack also said to be patient. Acne takes 90 to form so, don't expect dramatic results for at least 45 days. This is what I recieved in my pack:

Regular strength Corrective Grains
Regular strength Facial Shampoo
SPF 25
Gelloid moisture and mask (pink)
12% smoothing cream
20% smoothing gel
Biologial clay mask
Old lady cream
and samples of the following:
4 different strengths of Miracle Zit (Benzoyl Peroxide cream)
MSSR 2% (main ingredient is salicylic acid)

WOW! Talk about overwhelming, I was so confused. So, I e-mailed Barbara, who is the founder and CEO of the company. I recieved a response in 15 minutes. I let her know that I was confused and I didn't want to irritate my skin by using all of the products at once. This is what she recommended:

If you wake up dry you may use Gelloid as a mask after rinsing off Miracle Zit
Facial Shampoo
SPF 25
Old Lady Cream on dry areas
Smoothing Cream

Facial Shampoo
Old Lady Cream where dry
Miracle Zit

She said to try this routine for a week and see how it goes.

Last night, I used the products exactly how she instructed me to. I woke up and my face feels great! No redness from The Benzoyl Peroxide, which is a miracle as far as I'm concerned. Even 2 "big mothers" I had on my cheek are less painful and inflammed. So far so good, I will post again soon.

Enjoy your Holiday everyone!!!!!!!!!!
