If breakouts have been driving you bonkers and your teenage years are starting to feel like a distant memory, chances are you've got what we like to call 'adult acne' or 'hormonal acne'.
Maybe you have constant breakouts, or maybe you go through a monthly cycle of clear skin/congested skin/healing skin/here we go again? If you answered yes then we think these products can help you out :)
As well as helping overcome blemishes, the products in this pack help regulate your skin's oil production which means oily skin becomes less oily.
These deluxe, super-sized samples will give you 2+ weeks supply of our best skin balancing and blemish busting products, and give you a huge helping of "spoil yourself" too (not to mention the free shipping and $10 Next Purchase voucher*) :)
If you haven't discovered Konjac sponges yet, you've been missing out! They're little balls of squishy goodness, wonderful for helping you get your best cleanse and clearing problematic skin by gently exfoliating and stimulating blood flow.
The Combination skin pack will still be belmish-busting but at the same time it won't leave your skin feeling dry at all :)
What you need to know about adult acne
Adult acne, hormonal breakouts and pimples – they’re way more common than you think (especially with the gals)!
The biggest culprit is… HORMONES!
Menstrual cycles, coming off the pill, falling pregnant, breastfeeding, menopause and stress all trigger hormone changes where androgens are produced. And this can wreak havoc when it comes to your skin.
You’ll find that hormonal acne is usually in the bottom half of your face, especially around your jawline.
There are some other causes of adult acne and pimples too...
Air pollution – City life is fun but the country air is better for your skin. City pollution can place a layer of crud on your face that clogs up pores faster than a wet wipe flushed down the toilet.
Overdoing the skincare – Yep too much of a good thing is bad. The most common is over cleansing and over exfoliating. You can’t scrub pimples away! Be mindful of using too much makeup too (if your makeup is poor quality, it’s just as bad as air pollution).
Food Sensitivities – The evidence is still a little fuzzy but in our personal experience it plays a role. Now, finding the foods which are an issue can take some time but two common ones are dairy and grains (especially wheat).
Sugar– Sugar spikes your insulin which triggers your body to produce androgens which causes more oil production.
Vitamin deficiency – If you’re missing some key vitamins and minerals from your diet, it can mean breakout city. Some of the vitamins that are closely linked to adult acne are Vitamins A, D, E, zinc and magnesium.
Naturally Oily Skin – Some of us are just a bit unlucky and our skin is naturally oily. The good news is that those of us with oily skin will get less fine lines as we get older.
12 tips for keeping hormonal and adult acne under control
Always follow your 3 Step skincare routine morning and night, and use the Pig In Mud Mineral Mask twice per week
Exfoliate 1-2 times per week (your Pig In Mud Mineral Mask doubles as an exfoliator or check out the Spoonful of Sugar Exfoliating Scrub)
Drink plenty of water
Exercise (sweating lots helps!)
Keep your hair clean (don’t over-do the conditioner).
Change your pillowcase regularly
Clean your phone (bacteria haven!)
Get enough sleep. This can be a hard one if you are Mum with little ones.
Never touch your face (unless you’re doing your morning/night routine or have clean hands)
You can spray a blemish-fighting toner like Tickled Pink Perfecting Tonic and wipe with a cotton makeup pad during the day if you’re feeling some oil build up. This is also good to do if you work in a city and spend more than 30 mins outside to remove any pollution film.
Look at your diet and eat as cleanly as possible. Good digestion results in good skin. The 80/20 rule doesn’t work in this case. Even small amounts of the wrong food can be enough. Truth bomb: Even though a food is healthy it still could be a problem!
If you follow these tips and stick to your 3 Step skincare routine (starting with the products in this sample pack), then you'll be on your way to clearer skin.

How to cleanse, tone and moisturise (for best results repeat morning and night)
Lock yourself in your bathroom (just joking – but this is your chance for some “me” time)
Using dry hands massage 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil into your face for at least 30 seconds, using circular motions to melt away daily grime and makeup.
Wet your hands and massage your face again, turning the oil milky (ooh magic!).
It’s safe to use the cleanser around your eyes to remove stubborn eye makeup.
Gently remove the oil from your skin by wiping with a warm damp Konjac sponge or soft cloth, paying particular attention to your hairline. Pat dry with a towel.
Optional double cleanse (works best with Tickled Pink Perfecting Tonic for blemish prone skin) – Dampen your face with tonic and repeat step 3. Pat dry with a towel.
Apply some of the Tickled Pink Perfecting Tonic and wait for it to soak in.
Follow with your preferred moisturiser, either the Perfectly Happy Anti-Ageing Cream, a few drops of Black Seed Oil, or both!
Ready to scrub? (2 times per week)
Mix a small amount of Spoonful of Sugar Exfoliating Scrub in your hands with a few drops of water to partially dissolve.
Massage into your face & neck (or hands & feet).
For a stronger scrub use less water, and for a softer scrub use more water.
Wash off with warm water and a soft cloth or Konjac sponge. Pat dry with a towel.
Follow with your tonic and moisturiser(s!!) :)
How to detox with the ‘Pig In Mud’ Mineral Mask (1 to 2 times per week)
Cleanse first with the 3 Cheers Cleansing Oil
Put 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of dry clay into a small bowl or the palm of your hand (using your hand is messier!)
Mix in 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of water. A thin consistency tends to work best unless targeting specific blackheads or pimples.
Avoiding your eyes, spread it over your face in a thin layer.
Leave it on for 10 min or until the mask dries. For sensitive skin start with 5 min.
Wet your hands and start massaging your face until the mask is wet again and wash off with warm water. If using a cloth please use a dark colour to avoid stains. No one likes extra laundry duties.
Apply some tonic and moisturise well (this is important as the mask can be slightly drying as it draws out impurities).
Admire your soft, clean and purified skin
Don’t be alarmed if you get a blemish the following day – this does happen occasionally because of impurities being drawn to the skin’s surface. Re-apply a small amount of mask to the problem area.
