It’s not everyday that I get a foreign brand knocking on my inbox door and am happy to present a product today unlike any other I’ve heard of. The first and only time I heard about this product was on LondonMakeupGirl’s lovely blog and she’s one of the UK’s higher end beauty bloggers (was trying hard not to covet that she was invited to the Tom Ford beauty launch). I present an innovative skincare alternative to you who are miserable from trialling all sorts of anti-acne topical products and remedies that never seem to do anything except sit on top of the skin or agitate the condition. This is help: clear skin by Works With Water Nutraceuticals UK.
“help: clear skin is a 100% natural skin supplement that promises to reduce blemishes from the inside out in as little as six weeks. Packed with praventin – derived from milk protein and scientifically supported to achieve a clearer complexion – the other natural ingredients include aloe vera to help heal, smooth and nourish the skin, and oligofructose, a soluble fibre to aid digestion and help eliminate toxin. Praventin is a natural ingredient derived from milk, rich in Lactoferrin, which has been proven to reduce acne by boosting the body’s natural defences. It limits the growth of acne bacteria, reduces the appearance of blemishes and speeds up the skin’s innate healing process, leaving your complexion looking clearer and more radiant.”
Q: “What is the difference between help: clear skin and help: clear skin for men?”
A: “There is absolutely no difference between CS and CS for Men. The key ingredients in the blend formulation work on male and female skin in exactly the same way. We brought out CS for Men in response to requests for less ‘pink and girlie’ packaging.”
I was very excited that Works With Water UK said they would like to send me some boxes of their help: clear skin soluble nutraceutical fiber which when mixed with water or soft food (like yoghurt, soup, or cereal) is supposed to “help clear skin” of blemishes and acne from the inside out after daily ingestion for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Of course my willing guinea pig for this product trial is to be none other than my dear, only teenage brother. Read more to get the full post with more of my thoughts on this.
How this works is a bioactive milk protein called Praventin which is rich in lactoferrin helps repress the forming of bacteria that are responsible for forming pimples and acne. Praventin is made present in a soluble fiber vehicle we can ingest. It’s tasteless, odorless, and safe for vegetarians, diabetics and lactose intolerant people. For me the packaging shouts “credible” or “legit” from the moment you lay eyes on the boxes in blue and pink which are color coded accordingly for men and women. One box contains 7 sachets, worth a week’s dosage. The soluble fiber or powder containing the formula is odorless and tasteless and will dissolve properly into soft food or beverage. Half of me is skeptical, but for my brother’s sake I’m hoping this actually works and improves his situation. I’m choosing to be optimistic.
INGREDIENTS: milk protein, high extract aloe vera, oligofructose (soluble fibre)
- Free from artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives.
- Suitable for vegetarians, diabetics, and lactose intolerant people.
Works With Water supplied me with a full treatment’s worth supply for both men and women that means 4 boxes (7 sachets per box) each for the pink and blue, 4 boxes for 4 weeks. I know what some of you are thinking right now. How am I going to test the product for women? Actually I don’t have to because as mentioned earlier, the formula is exactly the same for men and women it’s just that men didn’t like the pink boxes so they requested for new packaging.
So keep reading the blog because I’m contemplating on whether I pick a guest blogger or reader with a blog to give help: clear skin for women another trial OR hold a Metro Manila giveaway for it. Help: clear skin has gotten rave reviews from consumers as mentioned in their case studies page and also in testimonials by Amazon customers. “RRP £9.99, available from www.workswithwater.com (worldwide shipping available – free for orders over £45), Sasa Stores in Hong Kong and Superdrug, Boots, Holland & Barrett and Waitrose in the UK.” I’ll be posting a conclusive before and after write-up with photos of my brother at the end of 4 weeks when we consume the 4 boxes for men :).
