Tropikal Bliss: Ventures to clear skin │ Acne Prone Skin

Tuesday, December 6, 2016



Since puberty my, face always resembled a crater. I am able to joke about it now because it took time to grow confidence in my skin In grade school people would often times rub on my forehead to grease their hands if they were ashy, no joke. It’s sad because I have tried billions of products from over the counter medications to prescribed and recommended products from dermatologist.  On this next skin venture I am most hopeful that this time there will be some types of progress. 
First let me tell you a bit about Tropical Bliss. Tropical Bliss is a company that prides themselves on organic ingredients that are deemed to be most effective. I am currently trying out their Fruit Enzymes collection. This special line was developed for people who suffer from acne, discoloration and wrinkles like myself. With the exception of wrinkles, acne and discoloration have been the villains in my life. If you take a look at their website they explain in depth the different fruit enzymes and natural organic ingredients that use to treat these symptoms. One of the best parts about this set are that is animal cruelty free and 100% vegan!

Face mapping



Face mapping has been an ancient technique used to understand why breakouts occur on specific portions of your face. According to face mapping, majority of my breakouts are hormonal as they occur on the jawline and mouth areas. I have not changed anything in my diet in the last three months but my acne has gotten worse in the last month and a half. Granted because my acne is hormonal I should be seeing a doctor to do various test on hormone levels, HOWEVER I am still going to give this Super Enzyme set a try!

How does it smell?

To say the least all of these products smell super yummy. With blends of papaya and pineapple I take pleasure in wiping the substances on my face. The only drawbacks is the Blemish Control cream smells awful! Like old laundry that has been sitting for two weeks but everything else trumps the bad smell. It’s not too potent and has the right hints of freshness.

Drawbacks

I am unsure if this is just the enzymes working its magic but my face burns frequently after putting on the blemish control cream. Now most of you would discontinue use however I understand that these products do include acid so perhaps the tingly feelings are the acids found in the products working its magic. Not sure if I can also consider this a drawback however I have also found more breakouts around my mouth and chin since the start of this product. It could be a possibility that this product is purging my skin of the underlying bacteria growing underneath my skin that produces the whiteheads. I will be able to tell you soon enough though to rename this as a positive effect instead of a drawback.


Here are the picture from day 3 and day 7. What are your thoughts?
 Day 3





Day 7




You can begin to see the patches lifting on my skin. Not I do realize that the lighting is different so in my next updates I will try to keep the lighting consistent. Byday 3 you can see my acne drying out which is a good thing! Just waiting on the spots to clear.
