Relogy Skin Care | Pookie's Notes

So... Why is a #driedoutoldhag who doesn't break out reviewing a skin care line for acne prone skin? Well, the answer is simple, really. I am a moron. I misread a pitch e-mail early one morning before I was fully caffeinated and this lovely stuff landed on my doorstep, shortly thereafter. Great. Not only am I a moron, I am a moron with a skin care line that I can't in a million years put on my face. Now what do I do? I could send it back, I suppose. Or... I know! I'll get Pookie (my twenty-something son who just looooves being called Pookie) to test it out! Pookie loves his mom. He'll be a sport.

A little about Pookie (he has asked me to not use his real name or photographs online): Twenty-something, very fair, extremely sensitive, combo skin that is no longer actively breaking out but has large pores, congestion and texture issues because rather than using skin care, like most guys he "takes care of his skin" by letting his daily shampoo run down over his face ("It gets my face clean enough, mom!") and of course, shaving. Yes. I grabbed the products and my camera, fired off the necessary photos and the next time Pookie came to visit raid my refrigerator, I pounced. Being the solid dude he is, he agreed to use the products according to my instructions and report back.

Relogy. Inspired by the biology of your skin. This breakthrough acne treating skin care line, six years in the making, harnesses the power of natural ingredients to start clearing your skin, fast but gently without harsh side effects normally associated with acne clearing lines and treatments. Relogy is for anyone who experiences acne breakouts. Any level, many skin types. 

A little about the products from the website:
Dual Action Treatment Foam  (It's bubbly for a reason, not just 'cause it's fun.) This silky foam acne wash uses the power of oxygenated bubbles to penetrate deep into your pores to start clearing pimples immediately. This step also makes your skin look and feel softer, smoother and healthier. It's super easy too! Use it as a cleanser with rinsing, or just apply and let it dry!
Skin Balancing Lotion  100% Natural Skin Balancer with Coconut Milk is the ultimate side-effect preventer. It fights dryness and irritation with a level of hydration that's just right for balanced skin.
Relogy Skin Care Swatches notesfrommydressingtable.com

The Dual Action Treatment Foam is bubbly and soft. The Skin Balancing Lotion is silky, lightweight, spreads smoothly, sinks in readily and provides hydration without feeling heavy, greasy or leaving an oily looking sheen on the skin's surface. 

Relogy Skin Care Acne Spot Serum notesfrommydressingtable.com

Targeted Acne Treatment with seaweed extract is free with purchase and is intended as a spot treatment. Pookie got a breakout while test driving this line but he refused to use this serum. He is fussy about treatments after the discomfort of the acne treatments he endured as a teen. Consistent use of the cleansing foam was effective for him so I didn't push the issue. 

So, how does this line perform? My observations of Pookie's skin after he went through the cleanser and moisturizer is that his skin is softer, a little more even toned. The congestion is greatly cleared and eased, pores are cleaner and appear smaller and a bit tighter. His skin texture is somewhat smoother. I have tried to get him to exfoliate but he refuses. His skin is just too sensitive and he dislikes discomfort so... It isn't happening. 

Pookie's notes:

Dual Action Treatment Foam "It's good. It got my face clean."

Skin Balancing Lotion: "It's okay. My face doesn't feel as tight and uncomfortable with it. It's not greasy."

Targeted Acne Treatment: "I'm not going there."

When I asked him if he liked the experience of using this skincare, overall he said that he did. When asked if he would purchase, "Maybe. Do you have any Hot Pockets?" 

If you have congested/acne prone skin I would say, this line is definitely worth giving a go. It seems to be effective, especially at clearing congestion. It isn't harsh, Mr. Sensitive Skin, himself gives it a good grade for gentleness. While my son isn't actively breaking out, he did get a zit that cleared quickly while using these products. 

You can find Relogy Natural Acne Treatment here. The price is $49.95 every 60 days for an Auto Ship program. 

Visit Relogy on Facebook and follow them on Twitter

Relogy Acne Treatment skin care is cruelty free and vegan.

I just went shopping, would you like a Hot Pocket?

    Your son is a good sport to help his blogger mom especially since she calls him "Pookie" ;)

    I've heard good things about this brand. Glad to know it's almost as good as a hot pocket LOL

    ReplyDelete
  6. My friend tried this brand a while back and was happy with it. So... did you have any Hot Pockets?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I didn't get any. My son came over and glommed on to them. You'd think he was starving to death, the way he eats when he comes over. lol

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think that my son preferred the Hot Pockets! lol It did work for him, tho.

    ReplyDelete
  9. He was a good sport. The line did work for him, his skin is improved.

  10. He did his mom a solid, for sure. :D Just keeping it real... That is my boy. :P lol

  11. LOL I love your humor! I laughed out loud at the hot pockets after his casual answer...such a guy reply! lol I have dry/combo skin so I stick with products for dry skin, then use toners for my t-zone that way my cheeks don't become the sahara and my t-zone stays happy. Great review though! :)

  12. I love that they're cruelty free and vegan!

  13. Hot pockets seem very important to Pookie. lol. Glad you were able to talk him into trying this skincare line.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've been so picky with cleansers lately, that I pretty much beg companies to send me samples to try instead of full-sized products, haha! This one sounds interesting, I like these new oxygenated masks and cleansers - they really seem to live up to their claims of providing superior cleansing properties.

  15. Color Me So CrazyJune 29, 2015 at 3:54 PM

    So I said I wanted to check this out for my brother but this might be good for me. I'm always on the hunt for something to minimize my pores and control my combination skin. My darn face never knows what it wants sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I liked Relogy lotion when I tried it, but the cleanser had sulphates in it, which can cause acne for me. Not sure if they still have that as an ingredient or not.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hahahaha, so good. I try to get my boyfriend to go through some of the skincare I have backed up but he's so lazy!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Okay, I totally laughed at this post - you have such a knack for writing humorously. It's nice to read about skin care from a guy's perspective (I could totally hear my husband saying similar things).

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh, Pookie! lol. What a sport. and a great post!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Most importantly though did you have hot pockets :) I try and get my husband to do a review every now and again it is quiet humourous hehehe

    ReplyDelete
  21. This post is the best, Pookie was a good sport. I have heard good things about this brand so glad to know it worked well for him.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Pookie is a good kid if he's willing to test for you. I know I'd never get that kind of cooperation. I still get an occasional breakout so having a line like this in the house is handy.

  23. Bailey_AlltheWordsJune 29, 2015 at 7:59 PM

    Cute review! I hope you bought him so hot pockets fr being such a willing participant:D

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would have done a similar thing, found me a Pookie to test this, I cant deal with harsh skincare. My skin has been through a lot lately :-/

    ReplyDelete
  25. Poor Pookie. You're gonna give that kid a complex ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Too funny! Sounds like Pookie was a such good sport! This sounds like it would work great for my 15-year-old daughter. My son washes his face the same way as Pookie (letting shampoo run down his face), but he's 12, haha!

    ReplyDelete
  27. BAHAHAHA! Erika this was the best review ever. I'm a little bummed to see that I can't expect my 15 yr olds to change much ones they hit their 20s. I was keeping my fingers crossed they would suddenly turn into willing participants with my skin care pushing. ;)

  28. What a great sport Pookie is. :)

  30. Pookie sounds cute..Thanks for sharing great review about Relogy skin care..i shall recommend to my friends who have acne problem.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your son sounds like a hoot. I just caught my hubby trying to wash his face with body wash the other day. I shrieked STOP!!! and he just looked at me. lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is so funny. I tried to talk my husband into doing a mud mask the other day. He agreed but we forgot.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pics, when it happens. 3:)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh yeah. He's a real riot. ;) lol Men... The things they do to their skin. My husband won't even consider trying skin care I try to foist off on him. He has his routine and that, it. it. lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. Pookie is cute. Of course, I'm his mom so I'm a little biased. ;) I hope that your friends try and like.

    ReplyDelete
  36. He really is. He wasn't wild about the idea but he stepped up for his old mom. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you. :D Yeah, teenaged boys turn into twenty-something guys and they just root around in the cave. You might be able to talk them into cooperating, as they get a little older. Maybe... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Don't look for that to change, He'll be doing it when he's 22. lol Your daughter might really like it. Mr. Sensitive Face didn't suffer irritation, so it's gentle.


    Pookie really was a good sport. He's a sweetie.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Naw. He's pretty secure and it isn't as if we went to work and told his colleagues that he was testing skin care for his mom. lol

    ReplyDelete
  40. I know. I hope that it's calming down and bit and recovering.


    There was no way I could have tested that line, myself. I'm just way too dry. Pookie is very sensitive but didn't find it harsh. I think that secretly, he liked the moisturizer but no way was he going to tell me... Probably afraid I'd buy him a barrel of it. lol

    ReplyDelete
  41. Absolutely! I always keep some in the freezer for him. :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. It seems to be good stuff. I don't worry about breakouts, anymore. I had my share, in earlier years and I'm happy to have clear skin that behaves. lol Pookie really was a sweetie for helping his mom out.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you. :D He is a good guy and I appreciated his help.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yep. I keep them on hand for him. lol

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you so much. He really is a sweetie for stepping up.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thank you. :D eah, guys don't always wax eloquent. He got said what he needed to.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think it's in the male DNA. Skincare take time away from hunt! Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's crazy how one ingredient can be clearing and give someone else trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oy. When I was younger... I have a good routine now but when I was battling acne and pores... It was a nightmare. I may be dried up and getting wrinkles but skincare is actually easier, now. lol

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh! I'm testing a new oxygen masque for Exuviance. I'll have something up pretty soon. You might be interested.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hot Pockets are everything to Pookie. Along with anything else he can put in his bottomless stomach. lol He was a gentelman for doing that for me. <3

    ReplyDelete
  52. I thought that was great, as well. It's nice to see more and more companies moving in that direction.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thank you so much. It's important to stick to what works and it sounds as if you have a good balance.


    Pookie did me proud, for sure and yes, he is such a guy. lol
