My 13 year old daughter has been using the MaxClarity products for about a month. She had high hopes for it. There was some improvement with her acne and the overall appearance of her skin, but because she didn’t follow the directions completely, she missed out on the full effect. Blame it on immaturity, forgetfulness or not caring as she should, but I believe that MaxClarity would have been an acne solution if used correctly.
Even with the foam cleanser, foam treatment and toner bottles right near her sink, she didn’t use them daily as she should. We have a whiteboard in the bathroom to remind her to brush her teeth, take her medicine, etc. So I added â€œUse MaxClarityâ€. A lot of good that did! Once she didn’t use it for a few days though, she realized that she had a new breakout. That definitely enticed her to get on the bandwagon again.
- My daughter, Sammi opened the Maxclarity cans on her own as soon as she received the box. She had difficulty breaking the seal on the first can and ended up popping the cap off. She could still use it, though.
- We had no idea what the extra, â€œfreeâ€ product was for – Foaming Wash. There was no information on the card that came with the box. After looking at the MaxClarity website, we learned that is was to be used in the shower for the whole body, especially areas like upper arms, back and neck where acne forms.
- We didn’t see a complete clear up of pimples, but again, I believe it was because the products were not used daily.
- MaxClarity made Sammi’s skin feel smooth, not dry.
- It prevented new pimples and breakouts from forming.
- The appearance of her skin improved. The pimples she had when first using MaxClarity were not as prominent. Her skin was less oily.
- You use a small amount of the products, just a dollop of foam, which helps to make it last longer.
- Clear directions, including the need to shake the cans, the actual size (a circle image) of the amount of foam to be used, and the actual products and when to use them are included in the box. These are on a small card that comes with your box of products.
For young teens and tweens, avoiding a schedule of â€œextra things to doâ€ may seem like the easy way out, even if they are highly motivated to change something they don’t like about their appearance. I’m working with Sammi to follow through with the use of the MaxClarity Difference, just like I am with her brushing and flossing her teeth better. Avoiding anything to do with personal hygiene during the teen years is a common way to rebel. So, I’m taking it with a grain of salt. Maybe if I don’t say anything, she’s come to her senses!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of MaxClarity and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
