I had persistent and red rash-like acne on my cheeks for years, which came out of nowhere at the age of 18 and lasted all through my college days. Not fun. I chalked it up to food allergies or other untreatable causes—but when I finally found something that worked, I stuck with it, and now, thank goodness, my skin is clear.

As a plant-based eater with food allergies and a strong desire to use products that are cruelty-free and not tested on animals, I now can recommend bioClarity for anyone with similar skin issues.

Six months ago, a friend suggested I try bioClarity so I checked it out. What did I have to lose? The onboarding quiz is fun, brief, and you answer questions like "What's your skin type?" and "What are you looking for in a skin product?" The result was they recommended that I should try their Clear Skin Routine which incorporates a cleanser, treatment, and moisturizer kit.

I ordered it right away, since for $30 a month I was willing to try anything. When it arrived—in a very cute pouch—the most notable thing was that the moisturizer was green since it uses Floralux, a plant-derived compound from chlorophyll that is both drying and healing to skin at the same time. It is designed to reduce redness, kill bacteria and get rid of acne. For me, this product was the game-changer my face needed to finally clear up once and for all.

The bioClarity line of skin products is vegan, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free and uses a combination of natural ingredients that include chamomile, cucumber, green tea, licorice root, and oat kernels. You can get it from the company website or Amazon Prime.
