Enter this week’s GORGEOUS GIVEAWAY and be one of the first to try Olay’s new acne treatment system designed specifically for adult skin – it doesn’t hit shelves until July. We have 3 sets of Olay Pro-X Clear Acne Protocol (a $42 value) – a 3-product regiment – to give to our lucky winners.

Compared to teenage acne, adult acne reacts and requires different products. And unfortunately, adult acne is on the rise according to the American Academy of Dermatology. The Pro-X Clear Acne Protocol addresses the special needs of adults with acne, which can include combination skin, slower skin turnover, fragile skin barrier, hormonal fluctuations, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, aged appearance and smoking.

Designed to treat acne and minimize the appearance of pores, while refining skin texture, Pro-x Clear Acne Protocol features three products and steps. The system includes:

Step 1 – Olay Professional Pro-X Clear Pore Clarifying Cleanser: A wash-off salicylic acid acne treatment that reduces oil and removes dead skin to help prevent clogged proes, while fighting formation of new acne.

Step 2 – Olay Professional Pro-X Clear Skin Clearing Treatment: A full face leave-on salicylic acid treatment designed to bring acne under control and help prevent future breakouts.

Step 3 – Olay Professional Pro-X Clear Complexion Renewing Lotion: A sheer moisturizer that hydrates and helps fade the look of spots and redness for an overall renewed appearance.

Still have questions? Visit www.olay.com for more details and purchase information about Olay Pro-X Clear Acne Protocol.

    I hate pimples no matter how many times I wash my face they still seem to come back.

  2. anniemos Says:

    I think I hate pimples more–at my age, they shouldnt be happening!

  3. crazeypoet Says:

    Definitely pimples! It drives me crazy that I still get them at 32! I would love to try this set.

  4. eyylingling Says:

    I hate pimples more because I always feel like they are the biggest distraction on someone’s face. At least in my opinion. I always get them and I hate it!!! Wish they would disappear like magic!!

  5. szawadzke Says:

    I have both, so I hate both! I would love the opportunity to give this a try!

  6. bahamabunny Says:

    I hate pimples more because they can leave dark marks or scaring on the skin when they decide to disappear.

  7. LBird206 Says:

    pimples are bad, but they can go away! Wrinkles are worse because they do NOT go away lol

  8. sexyknickers68 Says:

    Pimples are worse, they sometimes leave scars and sores.

  9. bella76 Says:

    I hate them both! But at the age of 34 i NEVER dreamed of having adult acne. I had very clear skin as a teenager and i want it back please!!!!

  10. sweet13love01 Says:

    i hate them both i hate pimples and wrinkles but mostly wrinkles cause somedays i have not alot of pimples that are noticable but the wrinkles is..so it would be great to have a product that does both the same time rather then you have to put a night cream for the wrinkles then a cream for the pimples so doing that can be very stressful

  11. brandy1lynn2 Says:

    I hate pimples more. I don’t really have an issue with wrinkles yet, and they don’t bother me anyways, yet, I have oily skin, so I tend to get pimples and blackheads a lot.

  12. briannauk Says:

    Wow, this is the giveaway for me! I hate pimples/ acne more than wrinkles for many reasons. I have tried so many products for adult acne that just don’t work and I am so tired of this embarassing mild/ moderate acne. I am almost 30 and am only seeing small signs of age like crow’s feet which are a natural look, not so horrible. But, this acne just seems like it will never go away!

  13. jewls634 Says:

    I hate wrinkles. Pimples will go away after treatment…but WRINKLES…I have not had any luck getting rid of those LOL

  14. matzsmith Says:

    I get some black heads on my sleeping side, but I have far more wrinkles (end to end that is) ha ha

  15. violagoddess782 Says:

    I think I hate wrinkles more than pimples, even though pimples are slightly easier to get rid of (except the stubborn ones on my forehead) but wrinkles are pretty much there forever 🙁

  16. brandy1lynn2 Says:

    I tweeted my response @blmommabear

  17. MizCindyHead Says:

    BOTH…. BUT, pimples, cause pimples at any age is bad but at 52 its embarrassing and they hurt.

  18. Dianne Says:

    Ugh…at 48 I still get pimples.So I hate pimples.

  19. JK8675309 Says:

    My Teen Daughter & I hate Pimples!, theres nothing worse than have them on your face.

  20. HelenaR3 Says:

    I’m 26 and I still having pimples, Hate it. Wrinkles not yet, Thank God =)

  21. mefink Says:

    Wrinkles they are there forever.Pimples come and go.

  22. candy3440 Says:

    Hate pimples because of the marks/scars they can leave behind.

  23. lachanelp Says:

    Pimples! eeww They come in big or small, red, black, and white. They’re gross! Plus they leave marks on your skin.

  24. mishamuse Says:

    I am ok with wrinkles….but breakouts when you are mid-40’s is not fun!

  25. malcaj Says:


  26. mom4everandever Says:

    hate wrinkles cause pimples dry up

  27. bocomomma Says:

    I am 36, most people my age have a few wrinkles. But I feel like no one else has zits!!! They ruin my day. :p

  28. baby Says:

    Hate pimples and always will. Let’s hope this olay isn’t just another proactiv scam like the rest of them. The acne battle is still on. I hope Olay is a winner.

  29. eyewonit Says:

    I hate wrinkles more ~ one you get them you are pretty much stuck with them. thank goodness for products like Pro-X Clear Acne Protocol which are so helpful in getting rid of wrinkles!! eyewonit AT aol dot com

  30. styleezta Says:

    I HATE pimples!! they leave black scars on my skin arghhhhh

  31. calidreamin87 Says:

    Wrinkles because at least pimples heal!

  32. creep4ward Says:

    I have pimples still, in my mid-30s. Will it ever end? Not too many wrinkles yet though.

  33. alonso2904 Says:

    I DESPISE pimples! I still get breakouts and there is never a great way to cover them up!

  34. TammyKicak Says:

    I hate both, but pimples are worse, because they’re so much harder to get rid of & hide!

  35. Krisjane Says:

    Pimples are much worse than wrinkles!

  36. penellipe Says:

    I don’t like either of them equally because I can’t seem to get rid of my pimples no matter what I use (don’t get me started on the pores decorating my face in new spots everyday) and wrinkles I am stuck with forever and those are getting bigger each day as well. I guess some of us just don’t age gracefully:)

  37. jenefer3 Says:

    I’d have to say definitely pimples. They are embarrassing. They cause pain, redness, swelling, and low self-esteem. Plus, nothing seems to help get rid of it quickly. I hate getting one but it seems like I always get one at the most inopportune times.
    At least there’s a lot of products out there that can help with wrinkles.

  38. sweetness120 Says:

    I hate pimples! I never had them as a teenager, but now that I hit my 30’s I seem to constantly have them! They Suck

  39. mchoneycutt Says:

    Definitely, PIMPLES…I expected the lines and wrinkles that I now have, but not STILL having breakouts at my age 🙁

  40. kellygrl Says:

    never thought i’d have to worry about pimples at age 34. one day my skin looks great and the next i feel like i’m back in grade school. it’s maddening.

  41. miriama59 Says:

    Wow! I love this. I have been bemoaning the fact that at 51 I have wrinkles AND acne. Shouldn’t it be enough to get wrinkles? And how to find a product that helps with my wrinkles but DOESN’T make me break out? It is the biggest issue I have right now. I hate the acne most because it’s unpleasant, sometimes painful.

  42. rubyfizzle Says:

    I hate pimples more b/c they’re hard to hide under makeup.

  43. waverlyla Says:

    wrinkles suck but at my age they’re not so bad. adult acne is worst. not only is it really embarrassing, they take even longer to heal than teen acne!

  44. agster Says:

    pimples…when you are in your late 30’s it makes you feel like there is nothing you can do to heal and conceal on time for anything you plan to do that day/night
