Day 1 Starting Emme Diane Skincare for Acne Prone Skin

I'm so excited! After seeing amazing results from my friends Jen and Emily using Emme Diane Skincare, I am going to be using the products in her line for the next 90 days (at least) to see what they can truly do for my skin!! Read on for more information.

Per her website, "Emme Diane L.E., is a licensed esthetician on a mission to solve the seemingly un-solvable skin issues, from acne to aging and everything in between."  My friend Jen says on her blog post about Emme (which you should totally go read after you read this) that "Emme created her own line when she couldn't find products that she was looking for in the marketplace." and "She is referred to as the acne whisperer"

After e-mailing Emme scary close up pictures of my bare face and having a personalized phone call with her, talking about my skin troubles and concerns, she created a regimen designed just for me to use to address my combination skin that is extremely acne prone, shine prone, combination and also flaky in areas. She also gave me some great tips and tricks about acne while on the phone as well as a copy of her "Acne Bible"- some of this information and tips about caring for acne I had absolutely no idea about!!!

 A few quick days later, I received a generous box of some of her line- products picked out for me to use with instructions specifically on just how to use them all!

I am not going to post the specifics on what I am supposed to use when here, at least not yet. Again, Emme takes the time to personalize a regimen for each and every individual client. I also will be using things in a certain order for the first two weeks and then changing in weeks 3 and 4 and beyond, depending on how my skin reacts. I also will be alternating some products nightly as well. Thankfully, Emme wrote all these instructions down so I do not get confused at all! Something I do have to do while using these products is temporarily shelve my beloved Clarisonic face brush. According to Emme, brushes like this can actually cause more inflammation in the skin and even make acne worse!

At the time I recorded the video below, I didn't use the products yet. As I write this blog, I'm only on day 2 so it is completely unrealistic for me to tell you how the products perform or that I've seen results yet. I can say they do feel lovely on  my face when applying. Future blog posts at the one month, two month and three month mark will get into more of a review and my thoughts, but for now I wanted to tell you a little about these products that were sent over and talk about my hopes!

 As mentioned earlier, my skin is acne prone, shine prone, combination and with winter I have dry patches. I found out I was definitely over exfolating, but in the back of my head I think I already knew that. Of course I know my acne prone skin could be way worse, but I tend to get hormonal break outs around my time of the month, and I've been so stressed lately I've been breaking out even more. Plus, once a break out may be popped, the marks they leave behind tend to stick around for months. I also know I have bad damage under my top layer of skin from when I went into tanning beds as a teen (BAD BAD BAD. I KNOW) Hopefully I'll be able to combat and reverse that to an extent too. I just really want my skin to be clear, youthful, not break out and also target some fine lines creeping up as well.


"A therapeutic mask specifically formulated for acne prone skin. Formulated with Sulfur, it helps to breakdown black heads and whiteheads and also acts as an antibacterial agent. It also gently exfoliates the skin, allowing for the regeneration of fresh, new skin. Also, containing Bentonite and Kaolin, which help to draw out impurities and clear the skin of excess oil and dirt. This mask is used to reduce inflammation of the skin, fight bacteria, absorb excess oil and exfoliate dead skin cells."

Emme told me to use this mask once a week and leave it on for only 3 minutes! Leaving clay masks on longer than this can result in skin actually drying out and do more harm than good! I had no idea!!

 "An antioxidant rich, low-lather cleanser which is perfect for sensitive skin (or any skin type, for that matter!) This silky gel cleanses thoroughly without drying the skin. It is also a favorite cleanser for removing makeup."

This will be my cleanser every morning and night! I already love how creamy it is and how well it removes my makeup.

 "These gentle exfoliating beads help remove the top dead skin cells to reveal fresh, vibrant skin and to allow your active treatment products to penetrate better."

Emme sent me this exfoliating polish to help take the place of my Clarisonic. I can use this a couple times a week only, and at night.

 "A truly unique toner! Combining the power of oxygen electrolytes and soothing aloe vera, this toner releases oxygen slowly to aid the body’s natural defense and repair process. Incredibly calming and nourishing, this toner is perfect for any skin type, but especially on dehydrated skin, inflamed acne, dermatitis, sensitive or irritated skin."

I use this twice a day right after cleansing. It also can be used as a nice makeup setting spray. Using this before other skincare can help those products work better. I never heard of "oxygen electrolytes" before and I'm fascinated by them.

 "Is your skin feeling thirsty? Skin Quencher is a quick fix for dehydrated or environmentally damaged skin. This water-based, gel hydrator instantly replenishes water moisture to the skin to give the skin a refreshed, plump and hydrated glow.
Key Ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Panthenol, Allantoin"

 I've only used this three times so far but I loved how light it feels and my drink drank it up!

 "Ultra hydrating, nourishing a soothing, this rich creme is a dream come true for those who have ultra dry skin. Utilizing plant extracts, ceramides and natural oils, this creme is also excellent for chaffed or compromised skin.
Key Ingredients: Safflower Oil, Ceramides"

I really like the feel of this moisturizer and how it does not feel super heavy or greasy at all.

 "If acne has got you down, this acne fighter will be your hero! This effective benzoyl peroxide gel is formulated to suffocate acne bacteria and assist in clearing the skin of inflamed acne. It is available in 3 strengths to treat mild, moderate or severe acne."

My biggest thing with this product is to remember to not use moisturizer over it or that can actually make this treatment uneffective! I'm so glad these products all came with proper usage instructions.

 "If clearer, brighter, more youthful skin is what you are after, this is your serum! Utilizing the multi-tasking fruit acid, Mandelic Acid (which is a MUST for acne prone skin), this serum with help to clarify the skin, treat and prevent post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, brighten and even the tone of the skin...and the cherry on top? It is also quite anti-aging!  
Key Ingredients: Mandelic Acid, Niacinamide, Lactic Acid"

This is another product that comes in two strengths and I received the more gentle one. I will be alternating this with the Acne Eraser at night.

 "This creamy, illuminating sunscreen is lightly tinted and perfect for normal to dry skin types. SPF 58, Broad Spectrum Physicial Sunscreen (Zinc Oxide/Titanium Dioxide), Water/Sweat Resistant 40 Minutes, Non-Comedogenic (will not clog pores/cause acne breakouts)"

"A cult following ensued when this favorite Emme Diane product launched! This all physical suncreen has a sheer, mattifying, silky finish and is water and sweat resistant up to 80 minutes. Sheer tint, mattifying, SPF 40, Physical Sunscreen (Zinc Oxide & Titanium Dioxide), Water and Sweat Resistant up to 80 minutes, Non-comedogenic"

I actually mix the two sunscreens because the Tinted Mineral Sunscreen has a beautiful matte finish but the shade is a wee bit dark so the Illuminating Sunscreen does a nice job to make it perfect for my skintone!

I'm so excited to see what these products will do! There are also some other products on her site for additional skin concerns, as well as a blog with such incredible information and tips!

I did take Day 1 Pictures but decided to hold off and post them after a month when I have Day 30 pictures I can compare them too. =)

If you contact Emme Diane, you can also receive your own skin consultation where she will personalize a regimen for you and coach you as you go! She has such a wonderful personality and energy about her. I felt right away she truly cares about her clients and their results!
