Some years back, my friend Toyin told me about the acne.org products but at the time, I was still very skeptical because of how sensitive my skin can be. Then I stumbled on a video by Beauty Vlogger, Dimma Umeh on her skincare routine featuring the acne.org products. This caught my attention and I decided to do my own research about the brand.
From my discovery, acne.org is a skincare brand that focuses on acne treatment. When you look through their site, you get information on how to treat acne but, the brand equally formulated its products which many have spoken so highly about. Hence, convincing me to try out the products and see if the hype is worth it.
Shopping and Delivery
I did order the products while I was in France but couldn’t have it delivered to France because I was leaving the country in less than 4days after I placed my order. I had the option of moving it to Nigeria but, my sister, after being told by Dimma that the company does have a clause about deliveries to Nigeria and the experiences that people have had generally with having their goods sent to Nigeria when they shop online, I decided to have the products delivered to a cargo company that I use in the United States. The products got to them in record time and the delivery was free. However, I paid about 4200 Naira to the cargo company to have it delivered to Nigeria.
It came in a brown carton, properly sealed with a transparent cellotape. When you open the box, the first thing you see is a leaflet containing instructions on how to use the product and a list of products that you ordered. When you take off the leaflet, there are some white foam on top of the products and beneath it is the products I ordered.
What I Ordered

1 8oz treatment
1 6oz AHA
The cleanser contains water, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Trideceth Sulphate, Glycerin, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, PEG-150 Distearate, Sodium Laureth 13 Carboxylate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Butylene Glycol, Sage Extract, Cucumber Extract, White Oak BarkExtract, Panthenol, Allantoin, Acrylates Copolymer, Methyl Gluceth-20, Polysorbate-20, Quaternium-15, DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA.

The brand has made it clear that the products work only when you use it as they have instructed. I was going to spell it all out but the brand has all that information on its site. So, click HERE to read. However, let me mention that the brand has equally stated that in using the AHA product, you need to avoid the sun to avoid sunburn. So the use of sunscreen is highly recommended and avoiding the sun as much as possible is paramount.
