Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

When I turned 40 I began to break out with acne on my face. I used to get some breakouts when I was a teenager but breaking out at 40 was very unexpected and frustrating.

After dealing with it or a few years, I tried everything over-the-counter to get rid of it, including the very popular topical acne medication from the commercials that you have to get through the mail. That was so drying and I hated putting those toxic chemicals on my skin. I felt like I was poisoning myself in order to get rid of pimples.

It worked but, like I said, it was really drying so my skin was red and flaky. When I read the ingredients I knew I could not continue using it. I finally figured out what healed it for good so I will tell you everything I did.

I started using Progessence after I went into perimenopause. I also started to drink a lot of water. My skin got better using both but I still had a lot of scars and my top lip line had been undefined ever since I started to break out. I could not wear lipstick because it just looked terrible because above my lip was red and the line was not defined anymore like it was when I was younger.

One day I decided to try Lemon oil on my face. I had no idea if it would work but, I thought what the heck? It couldn't hurt! So I rubbed it all over my face. It was a little tingly but not bad.

That same day, I was going to meet two friends that I see regularly. They both commented how great my skin looked and I looked so relaxed. So that inspired me and I started to use Lemon twice a day on my T-zone and even on my lip line.

My skin is getting better and looking youthful for the first time in years after only a few weeks. It is not dry or flaky and I have not had a pimple in a while which I think is from using the Progesence. My lip line is defined again!

Last week for the first time in years, I wore lipstick. The redness around my mouth as well as the red scars, are starting to disappear! I have had several people comment how great my skin looks because it isn't red, dry and flaky anymore.
