Safe Products for Acne-Prone Skin

face reality acne products

The Face Reality products that are available for purchase are specifically formulated for acneic skin and are guaranteed to not clog your pores. However, they will not get your skin clear on their own.  If you would like to get the other products in our product line that are strong enough to help you get your skin clear, you should make an appointment with us if you are local, so that we can examine and test your skin.

If you do not live locally, you can contact us to find a Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist in your area, by clicking here.

If you are currently using Face Reality products that you have purchased from one of our Face Reality Certified Acne Specialist, please contact that esthetician directly to order your products.  We do not sell any of our products with active ingredients to anyone who is not a client at our clinic in San Leandro, CA.

We only ship these products in the United States.

Products alone will not solve your acne problem.
You also need an acne expert’s guidance.
