Did X Out Wash-In Acne Treatment help my teenage son? Product Test Drive Part 2 #review

X Out Wash In Acne treatmentParenting a teen can be a challenge in so many ways, one of which is trying to help them care for their skin. Finding products that help to keep acne and other skin issues at bay during the teenage years can be a major headache! You may remember that a few weeks ago, My son let you know that he would be participating in a trial run of X Out’s Wash-In acne treatment. 

This prescription-grade acne cleanser was made specifically for teens by the makers of Proactiv, it’s  filled with extra strength ingredients to blast acne bacteria out of the pores and help kill off the bacteria on contact. X Out does this without stripping the skin of the good stuff, so it’s non drying to help your skin look its best. 

The X Out™ Wash-In Treatment contains the proven acne fighting power of benzoyl peroxide (8.5%) along with smooth beads to help exfoliate dead skin cells. X Out™ is dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic and is paraben and sulfate-free, so it can help teens with multiple skin types treat their acne. X Out™ can also be used as a spot treatment by dabbing a small amount on a pimple, or as a 10-minute treatment mask. 

Of course, that all sounds good but I find the number one problem with many acne solutions is the fact that they take too much time, or that my teen just doesn’t want to be bothered with getting into a routine. My favorite thing about X Out is the fact that it is a one step multi-use product. One product for my teen to remember to use, not multiple products with multiple steps. 

Though problem skin is prevalent among teens, it can often go untreated when making the effort requires motivation. X Out’s easy one-step Wash-In acne treatment offers a hassle-free solution to kill breakout-causing bacteria for a fresh, clear and confident appearance.

So, did he use it? Yes. He hasn’t been as good as I would like him to be with using every single day, twice a day, but he has been using it and I can tell. 

X Out treatment before and after

In the before and after shot, you can tell that while he still has some bumps, they aren’t as pronounced or as many. He mentioned that his skin hasn’t felt as greasy as it did before he started using the X Out wash-in treatment. He also says that the skin on his face feels smoother and cleaner. He also says it isn’t so bad since it’s only one thing he has to remember to put on his face, he has only used it as a wash though I’ve been trying to get him to use it as both the mask and spot-treatment as well — teens can be stubborn!

Something that makes X Out extra special is that they are trying to make the process of taking care of your skin as fun and non-boring as possible. By offering a “Daily Distraction” that can be accessed by scanning the QR code on the X Out bottle, they try to make that daily 2 minute wash session go by as quickly as possible.

X Out QR code

Each day has a new 2-minute video featuring sport & fashion tips, comedy or practical advice such as this morning’s video about the BMW brake system — Great info for a teen soon to be getting his permit!

XOut daily distraction

My teen said these video were “alright“, which basically means he watched them and thought they were decent. I think they’re a great idea, especially at first to give him an idea of how long he was supposed to be washing his face for.

    Sarah Taylor says

    I have acne and I not have used any products to help make it go away. I’m not sure they work but with X Out the reviews and all the proof I belive it will work!

    I have always believed that the best way to get rid of acne and any other skin problem is eating right and living healthy
    Eating lots of fruits and vegetables that supply the body with relevant nutrients is key to an acne free skin.
    Always good sleep also impacts on your skin.
    I wish all acne sufferers will read this article and make adjustments where needed.
    Thanks for the information.

    My fiance has had acne since he was a teenager. He’s tried several things, to no avail, which is understandably frustrating. I was using Citrus Clear products and then I recommended them to him.

    My fiance’s skin is noticeably clearer. I’ve never minded his skin issues, but it makes me happy to see him happier with his skin.
