My Skincare Routine + Giveaway


Let's face it, there is never a good time for a break-out. Acne is always an unwelcome guest, especially when it comes to beach days. Growing up, acne was a constant struggle, so when it came to make-up free pool parties or beach outings, I always ran the other way. As a teenager, I used to find solace in knowing that someday I'd "outgrow" my skin issues. After all, nearly everyone said that would be the case. Unfortunately, as the years rolled by, the skin challenges rolled right along with them. In fact, they've only gotten worse with the addition of stress and traveling, which always seems to cause flare-ups. And no one wants to deal with breakouts while on vacation. In preparation of an upcoming beach getaway, I went in search for the next great skin solution. A quest that led me to ZAPZYT, which I've now been using for about a month and seriously can't say enough good things about. I slathered the Acne Treatment Gel on the second it was delivered and in just two days all of my breakouts were significantly minimized. Friends who weren't aware I had started a new product even noticed a difference. You guys, this NEVER happens. Trust me, trying new skin treatments has practically been a part-time job since I was 13.

I am currently using the Acne Wash Cleanser twice a day; it contains aloe and chamomile so it soothes your skin without drying it out. But without a doubt, the Acne Treatment Gel is a lifesaver. It has 10% benzoyl peroxide and seriously stops breakouts in their track. It even works better than the prescription medicine I was given by my dermatologist. You really have to give it a try! Find out where you can buy ZAPZYT here!

I have partnered with ZAPZYT to give 5 readers a chance to win one of each full sized ZAPZYT products. To enter to win, simply leave a comment below about your experience with acne along with your e-mail address! This giveaway will run for 7 days. Good luck!


Thank you to ZAPZYT for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

  12. I primarily get acne when the season changes, which is kind of strange. I have a humidifier in my room to help. It's mostly concentrated on my forehead. I found that drinking a lot of water always helps.

  13. I have been struggling with acne since I was 13 as well. I have literally tried everything on the market at this point. Thank you for sharing, it makes me feel a little more normal that someone else still has acne trouble every now and then as an adult!

  19. Oh my goodness! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that experienced terrible acne as a teen AND as an adult. Whenever I see that bump starring back at me, I think "I thought I'd grow out of this by now!" but acne continues to happen. Although I have pretty sensitive skin, I'm interested in trying other products to curb this adult acne! thanks for the recommendation!

  22. I never had bad acne breakouts as a teenager, but I get then now as an adult. Ugh!! I tend to get blemishes on my chin & around my mouth and nothing seems to help. Frustrating...

  35. My acne didn't start until I was 19. Weird, I know. I have tried birth control, drugstore products, and even prescription medicines. Nothing gets rid of my breakouts completely, but I have been able to reduce them.

  42. I had really acne ever since I was 12-- I just celebrated my 23rd birthday and I worry that my acne is here to stay! Now that I'm starting to enter the workforce, I feel that my acne really hinders my performance at work. I struggle to find the confidence to excel the way I know that I can. If this product really works I would be so grateful! Olivia.moran@hotmail.com

  43. I don't get frequent acne breakouts but lately I have had quite a few from stress! It's the worst because it affects my self confidence at work and my social life :/

  44. I'm going to be a sophomore in high school and while a lot of people have acne that is worse than mine, it's hard being the only one of my friends to have less than perfect skin. I always feel self conscious about my face and sometimes don't even want to go to school or hang out with even my closest friends. I've gone to the dermatologist but nothing I've tried has worked so well for me. I wish I could be one to roll out of bed and not worry if everyone is staring at my forehead. If this product works I would be so thankful and I really hope it does. Thank you for the opportunity!! cheernerd61@gmail.dom

  58. I would to try this product for my skin. I have had acne since i was 14 years old and now I am 23 years old and have tried everything from Proactiv to drugstore products and nothing has worked. I been stuggling for far to long and hate it how people judge me because of it. Recently, someone told my friend that I had an airborne disease, which made me angry and upset.

  59. I would love to try this for my skin. I have been dealing with acne since I was 15 years old (I am now 22). It has gotten better but it's still there and it's no fun at all. Sometimes I still feel like that 15 year old girl when I go to parties because I know my skin is not very pretty. I really, really hope to win this!
