Review of Nature's Cure Anti-Acne Papaya Skin Care System

Product Review: Nature's Cure Anti-Acne Papaya Skin Care System

I'm always a little leery of anti-acne products, because let's face it — some almost do the reverse of quelling the breakout situation. With that said, I realize the effectiveness of any anti-acne product varies so much by individual, and for me, I think I've hit the jackpot with this one (and I hope it works for you, too).

Nature's Cure Anti-Acne Papaya Skin Care System ($19.99) comes as a three-product package. The main acne-fighting ingredients are salicylic acid and papaya enzymes, known for their exfoliating and antibacterial properties. The kit includes:

  • Acne-Clearing Papaya Cleanser — It's a little more liquidy and low foamy than I am used to, but it did the trick.
  • Pore-Perfecting Papaya Toner — Removed pretty much all the makeup the cleanser may have missed without a stinging, burning, or "mediciney" feel.
  • Acne-Repairing Papaya Moisturizer — Super-light feeling, and a little goes a long way. It also wore really well under foundation.
  • Overall, this skin care system worked wonders to keep my acne problems in check — without producing dry, flaky skin. At first I was a little unsure about the somewhat sweet, musky scent (mostly papaya), but it grew on me with regular usage. And since the results were so stellar, a little stink is acceptable in this case.

    Other bonuses? Soft skin, smoothness, no tie-dyed sheets, and reasonably priced — heck, I'll pay anything to put a halt to the breakouts, but when it comes at such a bargain price, woohoo, I say!

It looks like you can purchase Nature's Cure at CVS, Walgreens, or directly from the site: I hope that helps for our neighbors up in Canada!! Let me know.

Where can this be purchased? I'm wondering the same thing as emily2938, is it available in Canada?

They STILL have those pills and cream combo packs available. Why would anyone take some random pills that came along with a cream anyway? Scary. There's a cellulite cream that packages pills along with their cream as well. I think it's Nivea.

ooh, i want to try it, but I'm afraid to be disappointed. I am using mama lotion, which keeps the cystic acne in check, but I still get the "regular" surface breakouts. wonder if these could be used in tandem at all...

Oooh. Fruit-smelling skincare. I think I might be in love! But - am I just making this up, or is Nature's Cure the brand that used to have a cream & pills anti-acne thing back in the 90s?

I've actually used this before, I think two years ago?, and I found that it did work fairly well. I gave it up though because I received the Clinique 3-step for Christmas and that lasted me for a very long time.
