Beach Beauty Bar VS Over-the-Counter Brands - Beach Beauty Bar and Acne Clinic

Beach Beauty Bar VS Over-the-Counter Brands

Ever wonder what makes a clinical skincare line so special? Afterall, there are many products that line the shelves of places like over-the-counter brands like Sephora that promise the same results for half the cost. But why choose a product line like Beach Beauty Bar instead?

Do you want clear skin?

Cosmetic and over-the-counter (OTC) skincare items are commonly found in retail, department and drug stores. They’re advertised to the masses on TV, in magazines, billboards & of course, social media.

The difference is – typically, OTC skincare is formulated to be a one-size-fits-all and to treat simple problems, such as dry or oily skin. They’re designed to provide a measure of relief, and they might improve skin’s appearance to some extent.

However, there is a limit to what these over-the-counter brands CAN do. This is because these products are designed to appeal to the widest group of people possible without causing anyone negative side effects.

But the moral of that story is as it is for most things in life – You can’t please everyone all the time.

So why choose our clinical skincare line over the stuff you see at Target?

Quality over Quantity in Over-the-Counter Brands

This is something we have always heard but when it comes to clinical skincare products, you actually get both! What I mean is, when you purchase a Beach Beauty Bar moisturizer for example, you are not only getting a quality product, but you’re also getting the quantity too. A little also goes a long way.

Have you ever used a product from the drugstore and feel like you have to use a lot of it, thus causing you to run out more frequently?

Well, the reason is because most over-the-counter brands only actually contain microscopic amounts of active ingredients, and they typically only work on the top layer of the skin.

Our products that have a higher concentration of active ingredients (hyaluronic acid, growth factors, peptides, acids, antioxidants, etc.) are developed to penetrate deeper levels of the skin as well as help with cell turnover.

That’s a win/win.

Higher Standard of Care than Over-the-Counter Brands

We aren’t CVS or Target or Ulta or Sephora – but we like to think that we are better than big box stores like those for many reasons. One being that we have a very personal relationship with our clients. Stores like those don’t have a personal relationship with you. When was the last time you cried literal tears asking an employee of one of those places how you can get clear from a bad acne breakout? I’m guessing never.

We are locally owned, which means you know who to go to if there is a problem. Do you get to go to the owner of an over-the-counter brand or product? No. But having this option makes us much more accountable.

We’re also therapists. *This is a joke, but not reallllly if you think about it lol*

We care deeply about the quality of our products because they directly affect you, the consumer, our beloved client.

The product is only part of this. The other piece is you. Without our client’s satisfaction our products are worthless no matter how good they are. However yes, our brand, Beachy Clean Clinical Skincare, is devoted to the health and wellness of skin prone to acne. It is all we do, and we guarantee that even our anti-aging products will not break you out.

We specialize and confirm there will be no pore cloggers in our products… That cannot be the same in over-the-counter brands.

But, by all means!

If you’re in need of some q-tips, shaving cream, or nail polish remover – head on over to your local favorite spot & stock up.  

The Takeaway

If you’re looking to address your skin’s specific needs, clinical grade products are the quickest and safest way to get the results you’re looking for. Using OTC’s will only act as a band-aid to your issue. With the possibility of causing more damage to an already frustrating problem – take the path of least resistance.

Are you still not sure which one’s for you? We can help.

Schedule a consultation with us today. We’ll create a personalized skincare treatment that delivers the results you’ve long been looking for. Our clinical approach to beauty and skin health eliminates the guesswork and risks of using skincare products like ours.

Cheers to clear!
