I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for X Out. I received samples of X Out to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.
Being a Teenager is tough with all of the pressures of school and friends and your future. Being a Teenager with problem skin is even tougher with oily skin, random breakouts and hormones gone haywire. Being the Mother of a Teenager with troubled skin is hard because you have to watch your “baby” struggle with all of these things, while feeling practically helpless to do anything about it. That has been my life for the last several years here with The Teen. So when we had the opportunity to try XOut, a new one step acne fighting treatment from the makers of Proactiv, I jumped at the chance.
Now, The Teen is nearly 16 so we have been battling acne (unsuccessfully) for several years. I did not have acne growing up so I was not much help with telling her how to treat it. I turned to Facebook to ask for help where I got a myriad of recommendations about everything from prescription products to laundry detergent to off the wall foods to eat. (and to not eat) So I did what every good mom does… and spent a small fortune on all of the products that claim to help. And while some did start to show some signs of improvement for a few days, most of them dried her skin out, leaving her not only with more pimples, but flaky peeling skin as well. We were both frustrated and I saw her self esteem starting to suffer with being insecure about her appearance. It was awful.
XOut is a wash in treatment that literally takes just one step – washing your face – to get great skin. The XOut Wash In Treatments contain the proven acne fighting power of 8.5% benzoyl peroxide along with smooth beads to help exfoliate dead skin cells and moisturizers to help smooth and calm troubled skin. The formula is paraben and sulfate free and is non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested, so it can be used on any skin type. The Teen kept the pump bottle in the shower and has been using it morning and night for six weeks. The first week she did break out worse while XOut was cleaning the bacteria out of her pores – but ever since then she has had clear skin that is as smooth as when she was a little girl. No more 3, 4, 5 step processes, no more counting days, no more stacks of products cluttering up her bathroom counter – just one product, one step, awesome results.
We also got to check out XOut’s Shine Control and Spot Corrector which she really liked – although she did not need to use very much of since the Wash In Treatment worked so well. The Spot Corrector helped to get rid of any zits that did pop up in half the time, while the shine control kept her from getting overly oily. The best part of using XOut though besides the results – was how easy it was. One step – that’s it. For a busy teen – you can’t get any better than that.
The Teen joined me on camera for a quick video to share in her own words what her experience was with XOut. Check it out:
