Works for my acne prone combination skin

I have acne prone combination skin. I used to get acne mostly on my cheeks but also in-between my eyebrows and nose (at least one per week), but I haven’t noticed one in awhile. I recently started using it (a little over a month ago), and it’s definitely better than anything I’ve used before. It feels like it’s working. *Fingers crossed*

AMAZING Results

I’ve been struggling with acne all my life, and have had my ups and downs with it! Last year my skin went absolutely mental and I broke out like crazy! I’m 35 and SO OVER IT. I started using CocoKind products and they started to help but once I used the probiotic acne serum my acne cleared drastically! Like a few weeks I went from tons of pimples to one or two. Absolutely would recommend to anyone who struggles with breakouts or constant acne. It didn’t dry my skin, like most acne products do, and it’s lightweight and feels great!

Pores finally cleared

For as long as I can remember, my nose has been covered in clogged pores. Nothing seemed to help much, even other cocokind products. Once I started using this just a couple times a week my nose pores FINALLY started unclogging/clearing up!!! 10/10 recommend

The Boss of Cystic Acne Control

i was skeptical about these reviews at first because they were all in lower case (trust issues with bots, i guess?), but I need you to understand how amazing this product is. I had cystic acne breakouts twice a month after going off birth control for the first time in 15 years, and it was actually so devastating to my self-esteem to have such craters pocking my face for the first time in my life. Thanks to an influencer I decided to give this a go and, man... no regrets. In just two months my cystic acne has almost completely disappeared. I would worship this product on an alter if I could. It has done wonders for my skin - wonders!

My favorite product!

I absolutely love this stuff and out of all the cocokind products this is my favorite. It almost immediately helps everything deswell and gets rid of all my little blemishes and helps the bigger ones go away. Doesn’t have any strong smell, no tingle or anything like that, and super light on the face!
