I think my problem with whiteheads started when I had my first facial. My cousin who’s a dermatologist told me before that she didn’t want to give me a facial because she didn’t want to “ruin” my skin. According to her, once you get a facial, you’ll have to do it regularly because it opens up your pores.
I didn’t really think much about it because, back then, all I wanted was to get pampered and get the treatment that most celebrities get. So I went to a spa to get a facial. Now I realize that I should have listened to my cousin. I never really went to get a facial regularly. It was more of a one time thing for me and that probably was why I’ve had whiteheads ever since. Thank God I don’t get blackheads which are more obvious but whiteheads can still be obvious when there’s just too many of them.
So when I had the opportunity to try out the Vivant Skincare regimen, I was excited and hopeful that I would finally say byebye to my whitehead nightmare! I received 6 products that the people at Vivant recommended for my situation: Spin Trap® Antioxidant Serum, Totaloe, Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Wash, Buffing Grains, 3% Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Toner and Day Treatment Lotion SPF 15.
Vivant Skincare has been in the business for over 40 years. They provide medically-proven skin care solutions and they say that their products were inspired by their Lead Consultant’s “personal struggle with acne”. Now they formulate products that treat conditions like acne, hyperpigmentation and aged skin.
I had to use Vivant on my skin twice a day. Every morning, I need to cleanse my face using the Buffing Grains, follow it up with the 3-in-1 Toner, apply some of the Antioxidant Serum and the Day Treatment Lotion. Every night, I need to wash my face with the 3-in-1 Wash, swab some of the Toner, apply the Antioxidant Serum once again, then finish it up with the Totaloe Treatment. I didn’t use the Toner twice a day until after 2 weeks. This was Vivant’s recommendation so my skin can get used it first.
Now I’m not really someone who can keep up with having routines. For some reason, I either keep forgetting to cleanse my face and apply products or I’m just too lazy to do it. But all that changed within the first few weeks of trying out Vivant’s products. Not even a week has passed but I already saw a difference in my skin. My pores feel tighter and I feel like there’s significantly less whiteheads!
I have now been using Vivant for almost 3 months and I’m loving it! I love it too much that I told my husband to try it since he wasn’t having much luck with Proactiv. Please note that my husband’s skin is bad (I hope he doesn’t read this!). It’s dry, it has “craters” and he gets pimples every so often. He’s used Proactiv and Clinique before but he just didn’t like both. So he went ahead and tried the Vivant products I’m using and after just a few days of using it, he told me he’s loving it!
So now there are 2 of us using Vivant products. We already ran out of the Toner and the Antioxidant Serum so we had to go ahead and buy. And you know what, this is the first time I’ve decided to purchase more of something I’ve reviewed — which I think is a testament to how good and effective these Vivant products are. Here’s a photo of the empty bottles and the new ones that just arrived.
I’d have to admit that I’m really using up as little as I can everyday because I want to make sure that they last a couple of months (yes, I’m cheap! LOL) so I won’t have to buy as often. But yes, I love this regimen and would probably be sticking with it since we know we’re getting great value for our money. And if you are (or someone you know is) having skin/acne problems, try checking out Vivant. I would suggest using the contact form and letting them know about your skin problem so they can recommend the best regimen for you. I’m sure you won’t regret it.
