X Out Review and a Proactiv Update – Actual Results

It has been over a year now since I wrote about my daughter’s experience with X Out. X Out is an acne product by the same makers of Proactive, and targets teens due to it’s simplicity of use (at least that’s my opinion). It is a one step acne treatment, so the process is less time consuming making it more likely that a teenager will stick with a routine.

My daughter is 16 years old (15 when I wrote the original review), and has suffered with mild acne since she reached puberty at age 12.

I wanted to write a new review of X Out, as things have changed with how her skin was reacting to the product. It seemed like her acne was getting worse again, and trust me when I say that she is vigilant with her skin care routine.

She wears a little make-up, and this is only to cover up her acne. It upsets me like crazy, as she is such a beautiful young lady, and it hurts my heart knowing how much this bothers her.

A few months back, I started noticing her skin was flaring up again, and I asked if she had been washing consistently(which I pretty much knew she had), and she said yes. I asked her if she would be willing to give Proactiv another try, as I had ordered it for her at the early age of 12 or 13.

Now that she is a bit older, I was confident that she would use the product as directed, all 3 steps, twice a day. She agreed.

recipt for ProactivSo I ordered it. You can see my receipt to the left, as I order almost everything from Amazon anymore. I don’t like ordering from Guthy Renker due to the auto-shipments, so I simply order what I need, when I need it from Amazon.

I always try to show you a receipt because there are so many people reviewing products that they have never even tried. So there you go!

One Month Review of Proactive vs our Original X Out Review

As you can see from the receipt we received the order at our home on February 14, 2017 (Happy Valentine’s Day). Since then, I have noticed a drastic change in her skin. I am not going to tell you that her face is completely clear, but I am going to say that her skin tone is different, and her skin is smoother with much less acne on her face.

There is no question in my mind that Proactive is to thank for this. I truly believe that regardless of what product you use, whether for acne or not, or what your age is, using a 3 step product vs. just 1 step is important.


She washes with the cleanser, then applies some toner to a cotton square, lets her skin dry, and finally applies the lotion.  I am so pleased with the results (she is too!) that I just placed another order. (Here is another screenshot of my receipt :))

30 day supply proactiv amazon

I might add that I am an Amazon Prime member, and will likely be forever. It is worth it’s weight in gold to me because of how often I order products on Amazon. Hey, I’m busy, so why not?

If you or someone close to you is struggling with acne, I highly recommend Proactive. But like me, order it from Amazon first (or forever), as if you order through Proactive’s website, you are automatically signed up for the auto-shipments.

Amazon has an option for subscribing to the auto-renewal as well, so just make sure when you check out that you select “One Time Purchase” instead of “Subscribe & Save”.

If you have a younger child suffering with acne (12-14), I would recommend starting with X Out. This will get them used to a daily cleansing routine, and then when you feel that they are responsible enough to do all 3 steps twice a day, then move on to the Proactive product.

I want to reinforce something that Proactive will tell you as well should your order the product. Skin treated with the product will be sensitive to UV rays, so always keep this in mind whether it be for this particular acne product, or any other that you may try.

If you are looking for a 3 step cleansing product that is not meant to treat acne, you can read about a product for us aging women that I am currently reviewing here. This review is not complete, as I have not yet had enough time to truly give an opinion, so stay tuned for my results.

 

 

 

 

 

best back wash for acne

X Out Body Wash for Back Breakouts

treat back acneX Out is a product designed specifically for teens by the makers of Proactive. It is an easy option for the younger generation that may not be patient enough for a 3 step face routine.

They offer a wide range of products to treat acne, and one of my favorites is the X Out body wash.

My daughter plays high school soccer, and the conditioning is pretty intense. Throughout the summer she is on the field for a minimum of 3-4 days during mid-afternoon when the heat is at it’s highest temperature. She has a strong passion for soccer, but hates the acne that comes along with it. It begins on her shoulders, then spreads to her back, forcing her to wear T-shirts instead of a tank top that may keep her cooler.

She already suffers from mild acne on her face, so the X Out products were not new to us. She has been using the face wash for a couple years, and it showed a huge improvement in her complexion. This is why I did not hesitate to buy the X Out body wash, as I was pretty sure that it would help with her back acne.

She adds some to her wash cloth, and simply washes her back just as she would with soap.


Within a couple of weeks, the acne was very minimal, and it helped to reduce the breakouts she was getting from dirt and sweat sitting on her back for several hours until she could get home to shower.

If you or someone you know plays sports, and suffers from breakouts on their back, X Out body wash is one of Be Electrifying’s favorite acne products for teens.

X-Out Reviews Vs. Proactiv | Mom and Daughter Tell All

Proactiv has been on the market since 1995, and is a world-wide brand marketed to acne sufferers. But what about X-Out? Where does that product fit into the picture?

I chose the image on the left because it speaks a thousand words to those who have suffered with acne.

Read on to find out how we rate Proactiv vs. X-Out.

Proactiv Review By Mom

I began using Proactiv in my twenties, as I had mild acne, but consistently mild. It seemed that I never had a day where my face was without a few pimples.

I used the product faithfully, all 3 steps, every day. At first, I used it once a day until my skin accepted the product, and then began using twice daily. The results were pretty good.  My face felt smoother than it had in years, and as long as I never skipped a day, my mild acne was for the most part, under control.

I was a sun worshiper, so if you too love to tan, be careful in the sun when using this product. If you know you are going to be out in the sun, avoid using the product until evening so you do not end up with a badly burned face.

As I got into my thirties, I finally felt like a “real” adult, and my face began clearing up on its own, so I stopped using Proactiv.

Proactiv Review By Daughter

When my daughter reached the age that her face began to break out, I ordered Proactiv for her.  At this young age (she was about 12), getting her to wash her face with a 3-step product twice a day was a little too much to ask of a pre-teen. Without using it faithfully as directed, her acne was not clearing up as I had hoped.

I took her to see a dermatologist, and he prescribed a cream for her face, but it was too strong for her young skin, and she had a constant burning sensation, along with a red face, so I had her stop using it.

My Daughter’s X Out Review

About a year ago, we discovered X-Out. All I can say is, her face has never been so clear. As with any medication or over-the-counter medication, it is important to use as directed, but as long as you do, you will see results.

She began using it every other day until we knew that it was not going to cause any redness or burning. Once she was on a daily routine, her skin was almost 100% clear.

She is not the sun-goddess that I was, but there are obviously days that she is in the sun, and the same applies as with the Proactiv. Avoid using the face wash before going into the sun for any length of time, and always use some form of sunscreen while in the sun.

Our Top Picks


Proactiv VS. X-Out

If X-Out had been around when I was in my twenties and suffering with my mild acne, I would have tried X-Out over Proactiv for the simple reason that it is so much easier than using a 3-step product twice a day. Call me lazy, but it does become a bit cumbersome.

With that said, I would recommend Proactiv for someone who is going to responsible with the product instructions, and will use as directed.

I would recommend anyone suffering from acne to try X-Out first and see how it works for you before going with Proactiv. I hope our X Out reviews have been helpful in giving you an idea of which product would be best for you.

Instead of making the commitment and subscribing to X-Out’s automatic supply option, I would recommend ordering just one bottle to test it out. It is well worth the small investment. Click here to order X-Out by the bottle on Amazon.

I am a 37 year old woman who has literally tried everything under the sun for my mild, but persistent acne problem……I mean everything!!! Your products are absolutely wonderful. Jacqueline H. – Bayport, NY

Clearing of acne-prone skin involves several treatments such as the use of a good cleanser, a good clearing tonic and other treatment for opening the skin pores. There is no acne cleaning product in the market that is capable of cleaning 100 percent of acne blemishes without adding other treatments.

A good cleanser that is not left to dry on the body is very important to someone with acne. This is because acne begins to develop when a person’s skin starts accumulating and clumping on top of oil inside the pores.

For gentle loosening of dead skin and the removal of excess oil out of the skin pores, Exposed cleanser uses similar skin ingredients in water along with a small amount of sage extract so as to kill bacteria.

The clearing process works by providing green skin extract, thereby reducing the production of oil by sebaceous glands in pores. The tonic contains a small amount of witch hazel extract that is no good for use before your skin is cleansed since it closes/seals it. It is only advisable to use witch hazel after you have removed excess oil from your skin using a good cleanser. It is also right to keep the oil deep inside the pore so that it does not come into contact with your skin and later forming clogs.

Exposed products fights and calms inflammation and irritation using azelaic acid, and also stops the redness and black or brown pigmentation of the skin especially on the nose and sometimes on the the cheeks.

These product contains a clear pore serum that contains 1 percent of salicylic acid and beta-hydroxy acid that is used in the treatment. When salicylic acid is applied on the skin and left for the whole night, it dissolves hardened oils and later opens up both white and blackheads.

This clear pore serum is the best product in the market used to remove blackheads compared to blackhead extractor since it gives the pores walls time to heal. Extra large and ugly pores are also dealt with using this serum. Exposed also contains another product known as Microderm Scrub that is made of corundum crystals used to gently exfoliate thick skin that holds acne scars without causing irritation.

Advantages of using exposed skin care include:

– There is no age limit to use it, it can be used by people of all ages and skin types. It is the best recommended product used for treating teenage and adult acne and is also ideal for those who have sensitive skin.

– Its use is safe and effective since its solutions are formulated using FDA approved ingredients, and are approved to be used for acne treatment. Acne causing bacterias are eliminated using both their scientific and natural actives. Every product uses a combination of carefully selected actives that are beneficial for the skin renewal process.

– Another advantage is that it contains acid complexes that are carefully tested to reduce and end any existing blemishes on the skin and preventing any future acne scars/blemishes.

– The Exposed Skin Care line guarantees total satisfaction to its customers and promises to clear any scars or blemishes in just a month.
