Results of the @MaxClarity Challenge

Last month, I posted that my daughter Ashley would be taking the MaxClarity Challenge and seeing if it made a difference in her acne. For almost a month now, Ashley has faithfully used the MaxClarity system as part of her morning and evening routine.

I am pleased to report that she is thrilled with the results…. and so am I.

I’m going to post her before and after pictures – but I’m going to post the after picture first. {That way, when this post shows up in the featured box at the top of the blog, my daughter won’t refuse to speak to me for a week again. 😉 }

As you can see, there’s hardly a zit anywhere to be found. She loves how well the MaxClarity program has worked for her. She feels more confident, and she loves the fact that she doesn’t have to worry about wearing a ton of makeup to feel better about herself.

We do have a few thoughts about the system that we wanted to share with you:

  • I tried using the MaxClarity products myself, but I had to stop after just a few days. I have SUPER sensitive skin, and my face broke out, peeled, and burned like it was on fire. Obviously, there’s something in there that just doesn’t work for me. And that’s ok. It worked really well on my daughter, and she absolutely loves her results. That makes me happy enough. 🙂 I’ll just continue to use makeup to cover up my blemishes and hope that someone out there will come up with a product for super-sensitive folks like me.
  • The bottle colors totally confused my daughter. Ashley is a blonde – all the way to her roots – and things need to be simple in order for her to “get” it. With the MaxClarity system, you use the light blue topped bottle {Deep Cleanser} morning and night. Simple. BUT, then you use the dark blue topped bottle {Advanced Acne Treatment} in the morning and the yellow topped bottle {Rejuvenating toner} at night. Most people associate yellow with the sun, and dark with the night, so there were more than a few times that Ashley used the system backwards. {Even though I posted the chart on the mirror in her bathroom. Sigh.} But, really – I wish MaxClarity would consider changing the colors to coordinate with day and night. Might help these teenagers out.
  • I should have contacted  the MaxClarity Difference Team about the MaxClarity Difference Promise as soon as I started having problems with the system. After all, that’s what they’re there for. I will probably still contact them after this post to see if they can figure out why it would have such an adverse affect on my skin.
  • I love that the system uses foam, and that such a little bit goes such a long way. Ash is about halfway through each bottle, which is great, since each one is supposed to last 2 months.
  • It started working right away on Ashley. It wasn’t 2 days before we noticed a BIG change. The acne she had was disappearing, and there were no new pimples forming. I couldn’t believe how quickly it did that for her.

Ashley will definitely continue to use the MaxClarity system. She’s already asked me if we can order more to have it on hand so she doesn’t run out. She loves the way her skin looks and feels, and I love how much it has boosted her confidence. She tells me all the time how much she loves MaxClarity and how everyone has noticed how much it’s helped her acne.

If you have a teenager, I would highly encourage you to have your teen take the MaxClarity Challenge and see how it works for them. It may be just the product they need to get rid of their acne problem and start feeling better about themselves.

Also, be sure to connect with MaxClarity by visiting their websitefollowing them on twitter, and becoming a fan on Facebook.
