Getting Rid of Breakouts – Alissa Beauté

by Grace Njeri

There comes a time in your life when acne is your daily concern, well at least for me I am at that stage. I used to get break outs from time to time but this year acne has been the main player on the block. I have oily skin and that makes me really prone to acne.

I am partly responsible for all the days I come home and contemplate whether removing my makeup is actually important. I quickly console myself by telling myself I don’t do it often anyway.

So when I received  an Alissa Beauté parcel from Natasha it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Alissa Beauté is an Italian brand and Znchic Trendz here in Kenya will be the official East African distributors .

I took a little time to test the products before sharing my results with you.

The essentials have been my favorite!! Washing your face right is everything. I wash my face every day, twice a day with these and the results are fantastic. My breakouts are actually gone. #flawless

First question I get about the whitening mask and cream below is:

“Is that bleach?”

“Does it make you whiter?”

NO!!! The whitening products are actually for skin with pigment spots and acne scars. I have a few myself and I can honestly say they are starting to disappear.  Don’t just take my word please click here to read more on the official website.

I haven’t tried the peeling mask yet because I thought it would be totally weird if during the shoot with were nine pieces instead of ten so the photo wouldn’t look so nice. LOL! I will however put a video on my Instagram to show you how that went.


The hydra below works very well on dry skin for those of you with dry skin.

I will be giving away some products from Alissa Beauté so leave a comment below or on my Instagram or Facebook telling me which of these products you would like and why and they could be all yours.

Hi Grace, I would love the whitening cream. I have recently had rashes on my forehead after an allergic reaction I had over the holidays. The masks left behind haven’t cleared despite my effort to use creams. I’m currently just using moisturizer and minimal make up. I’d be so happy if I got the cream.

Oily skin problems…*sigh* been using activated charcoal with not much luck. The pigment spots are just too stubborn. Reading your post I’m thinking the whitening cream could come in handy. I’d appreciate if i got one. Thanks!!

Grace Njeri January 29, 2017 - 13:46

Hi Raychelle,
I applaud you for using out of the box methods in the attempt to get rid of the spots.
Thank you for sharing too.

CAROLINE January 26, 2017 - 17:27

Hey Grace, i am definitely dealing with the same issues currently and reading your blog couldn’t have come at a better time. I too have oily skin and i think i have tried absolutely everything including all diy’s the internet can provide to fix the pigment spots. Honestly, i would appreciate winning the giveaways mostly the whitening cream or the cleanser or toner or simply everything they have for an oily skin tone (a girl can dream right? Hehe).
Fingers crossed.

Grace Njeri January 29, 2017 - 13:49

Hi Caroline,
Hahaha your message has got me laughing. Thank you for that!!
I totally hear you with the DIYs from the internet. Can you believe I even tried garlic *sigh*

Kerubo Maranga January 27, 2017 - 08:09

Hallo Grace! You give me hope when you talk of acne battle because it has been a war for me for close to 5 yrs now and tried all the necessary products and even changing my diet. Sometimes am happy when i see no bumps on my face but the dark spots are somehow visible. I have an oily sensitive skin such that whenever i wash my face after patting it dry it looks so flaky but a few hours later it gets back to its oily state. I would really love the whitening cream because it’ll work magic even when my bumps are out ..Nothing is disturbing like a face with numerous dark spots even when the skin is smooth. The moisturizer will do me great justice moments after washing my face.

Grace Njeri January 29, 2017 - 13:53

Hi Kerubo,
I totally hear you. I look at my forehead and I wonder what else can I do that I have already not done. It really is frustrating and stressful.
Thank you for writing this and I know it takes a lot to share something so personal.

Chinenye January 27, 2017 - 16:46

I would like a whitening clean…I have been having serious acne since I was a teenager. Seriously,it brings down my self-esteem…I’m so tired of using make-up to cover it

Grace Njeri January 29, 2017 - 14:07

Hi Ezeibe,
Thank you for sharing this.
I totally understand how you feel with the spots on the face.
I would actually recommend that you pause on the makeup because it makes things worse, until you have controlled the break outs.

Betty Abah January 29, 2017 - 17:13

Your Comment happy new year to you, why do I feel God made me stumble on this? just this morning after church service I and a sister in the music department of my local church choir were talking to some sisters if they could help us out with any suggestions on on facial problem..

And here I am reading the story of my life. Currently, I am applying raw aloe Vera juice on my face in a bid to reclaim my face.

I will be honest, I don’t know anything about the products, save for what I just read, but I figure I could be a guinea pig for anything that will take this acne back to it’s sender. Waiting with crossed fingers.

Anne January 30, 2017 - 12:30

From creams to soaps to dermatologists nothing seems to work and it’s so frustrating just to find the right product,am glad that you were so thoughtful to share with the rest of us.Thank you.Can I try the whitening products?

I’d like the acne set for my sister who is pregnant and the breakouts are oppressing her ….please

Sylvia January 30, 2017 - 16:27

I battled with acne last year. It finally cleared. Lots of fruits and water helped.

Beverly January 30, 2017 - 16:44

Hi Wanjiku, To say that am an avid reader of your blog would be a complete lie. In fact, this is the first I have seen of you. Do you know what made me click on that link, the word ‘acne’ Just like everyone else, I used to have a smooth, flawless skin, then puberty hit! I am celebrating my 21st birthday in exactly a week’s time and that whitening cream would be the best gift I could ever have received in all my 21 years, but then again, it will be the 2nd one so obviously it will be the best. Anyway, I finally managed to clear the acne sometime last year (not completely though, these stupid little things are so damn stubborn) Activated charcoal + tea tree soap worked for me. I use Rose water as a toner and I drink plenty of water with cucumbers and mint leaves left in the fridge over night. If you would help me get rid of these damned acne scars, that would be great! Blessings!

Anyone else who might read this comment, my advise, CONSISTENCY and COMMITMENT! Those are the keys to kicking those little f**** off your face. If you’re using a product, use it consistently. Secondly, what works for one person may not work for you. Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you, don’t use your face as a guinea pig for products. Test the product on a small patch of your body first to see if there any reactions. And acne is not necessarily something you treat from the outside, no, treat it from the inside. Diet, water. That’s everything. The mint, cucumber, lemon combination really helps (I don’t put lemon in mine because of it’s slimming effect and am really slim naturally)

Grace Njeri January 31, 2017 - 11:34

Thank you so much ladies for reading this post and more so sharing your journey with me. I know it is not easy so from the bottom of my heart, Thank you!! I know we have all had different experiences and challenges when it comes to dealing with acne and one product will work for one person and give completely different results with the other person but we never now unless we try. I really wish I was able to give the Alissa Beauté products to all of you but unfortunately I can’t but this time. I will give this to Christine Maseke. I can’t begin to imagine what you have gone through from teenage to thirty. I really hope this will be the beginning of the end of acne and break outs for you. To everyone else thank you so so so much for writing to me and to get any of the products in this post, please contact +254738999991.
Love always
