I think one of the products in the kit is causing breakouts
After 4 months of sudden hormonal acne, I used Ole's acne kit and I managed to get rid of my breakouts. The products worked slow, but they worked. I did have to stop using the Vitamin E moisturizer. I was still getting daily breakouts until I stopped using it. Now, it's been 3 or 4 weeks that I am blemish free and I decided to buy this kit because I was left with a lot of scars. I started using it last night. The only new product I introduced to the routine last night was the sheer transformation moisturizer since I was already using the invigorating night gel as part of the acne kit routine. This morning I woke up and I have 2 or 3 new blemishes. I still decided to keep the routine and this morning I used the serum and the sheer transformation moisturizer again. I don't want to give up on the products so easily, but I don't want to go back to the way my face was 2 months ago.

The life cycle of a pimple is going to be anywhere from 1-3 months. This means the pimple is going to be sitting under your skin for usually at least a month before it ever appears on the surface. Thus, if you used the product once, and woke up the very next morning with a new pimple, that pimple was already there and could not have been caused by this product. This being said I have not actually tried this set, and I do not personally know if it can cause acne.
This product broke me out terribly.. And I didn't even have acne to begin with.. I would NEVER get breakouts on my cheeks.. And now I have 3 blemishes.. I've been using it for about 2 weeks

Keep the invigorating creme and drop the other. It could be too much citrus (acidity) and causing you to dry out too much. I have been using all three of these products and have been having great success with breakout prevention, but sometimes when I use all three at once it is a little too much. I use the night gel in the morning and night and then use the others every other night alternating between the transformation and serum. Good luck!

A Sephora rep once told me that you could use the gel alone at night as a moisturizer...maybe you could try that? Or if your face feels too tight after the gel (mine does), try a very little bit of the sheer transformation after the gel. I've found that these products are very moisturizing, and a little goes a long way. If I were you, I'd put a good amount of the gel on, but just a dime size of the sheer transformation.

It's probably the night gel. Try skipping it.

I had the SAME situation. Good skin after a whole lifetime of acne ups and downs (finally got a regimine that worked) and wanted something to help smooth things out and fade the scars. I already knew the truth serum did not break me out because I'd used it before...adding the other 2 products unfortunately broke me out like crazy. In my case it turned out to be mostly the night gel (but the cream was a little heavy for me so I discontinued both anyway), and I didn't clear up until I completely stopped using it (I gave it about a month before I threw in the towel). But I got clear again about a week after I stopped the other two products. Ihope this helps!

Sheer transformation is waaayyy to greasy, I highly suggest that you stop using it at night, stay with the Night gel firming and don't add anything else. A lot of people in the forum commented that without the Sheer Trans. this regimen is too drying for their skin, and its truth, that's why acne prone people like us, should stick with the less greasy routine possible, specially at nights.
good luck and great skin!!
