We’ve been carefully working with Eminence’s new Acne Advanced line. After months of trials, we are excited about utilizing these products in our Clear it & Glow facial!
This is not something that we jump into with new clients or clients in treatment. We slowly bring them in to help provide the results we seek at Pretty Please.
Eminence has launched a new line of acne products that we are excited to share with you! The Acne Advanced Treatment Kit is a 3-step system of full-sized products created to work synergistically together to treat advanced acne in 28 days!
The system includes the:

The great thing about this new line is the ability to either use it as a 3-step system if you wanted to or incorporating one or two of the products into your routine depending on how advanced your acne is and your particular goals.
For those with advanced acne (the cystic, under the skin hormonal breakouts that are typically tougher to treat) using this line as a 3-step system is ideal.
If your acne is on the milder side - you get breakouts here and there, but still want a more potent product to target those breakouts, incorporating The Acne Advanced Clarifying Masque as a weekly all over skin treatment and/or the Acne Advanced Clarifying Hydrator are great options.
We personally love using the Acne Advanced Clarifying Masque during facial treatments either all over or spot treating as it calms inflamed breakouts pretty quickly.
The Acne Advanced Clarifying Hydrator is a light gel lotion texture and I love using it in two different ways – either on its own for oily skin and for those who prefer a super lightweight finish or as a first layer for acne prone skin in need of more hydration and then topping it off with a moisturizer suited for the client’s skin.
Utilizing the Acne Advanced line in a Facial
The Acne Advanced line would typically be used during the Clear it & Glow facial where high frequency and ultrasound is used to exfoliate and eliminate acne-causing bacteria.
The great thing about Eminence is the ability to mix and match products to tailor the treatment for you. So for example, a client with more advanced acne might benefit from the use of all three products and or the Advanced Acne peel during the treatment. Whereas a client with acne but has more sensitive skin might benefit from the use of one product from this line.
Acne Advanced Peel - an additional $40
The Acne Advanced Peel contains 15% encapsulated salicylic acid, which delivers time-release protection against breakouts by encouraging exfoliation and unclogging pores. In addition, the peel contains papaya fruit extract, which also exfoliates and brightens the complexion, grape seed extract provides powerful antioxidant protection, wound healing and moisturizes the skin while chamomile extract calms and balances the skin.
Since you know your skin best, it’s always a great idea to work with an Esthetician so that they can provide a professional opinion and to also have an in-depth conversation about your skin’s history, current state, goals and what has worked or hasn’t worked for you in particular.
What makes this line different than the Clear Skin Probiotic line?
The Advanced Acne line is formulated with encapsulated salicylic acid, this means that salicylic acid is slowly released into the skin for continuous gentle exfoliation and pore-clogging action. It also contains a mix of three different clays to absorb excess oil, exfoliate and absorb impurities. In addition, the products contain a natural herb blend that protects, calms, and reduces the appearance of acne-related hyper-pigmentation and scarring.
Using the Acne Advance Treatment System
Tips from our skincare therapists:
Not all is acne is the same and not everyone with acne requires the same treatment so we recommend starting slow with this system to get your skin adjusted to it. Starting with one product and then slowly incorporating another if needed is a good way to go.
If you’re currently using prescriptions topicals like retinol, tretinoin, or other products for acne, weaning off the topicals first before starting this line would be best to avoid over-exfoliation and disrupting the skin’s moisture barrier.
If you’re new to using products tailored for acne, starting off with the Clear Skin Probiotic line first can be a great option for you.
