  • SCANTILY Pad® AM/PM Acne Treatment
  • CLEANSE with Benefits AM/PM Cleanser
  • SUPPLEMEANT to Be® Daily Pre + Probiotic Mix
  • PATCH Me (If You Can)® Targeted Pimple Patches
#FOBO products are formulated with clean, natural ingredients, and a specific blend of prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics. Which aren’t just buzzwords, by the way. Probiotics are the good bacteria, prebiotics are their food, and postbiotics are the beneficial metabolites (a.k.a. compounds) they produce. Working together, they balance the microbiome by helping your good bacteria flourish, and keeping the bad, acne-causing bacteria in check.
  • SCANTILY Pad® AM/PM Acne Treatment - Personalized. Topical. Leave-on. FDA-approved for acne treatment. Each pad is infused with a unique combination of our patented SE Microbiome Complex®, salicylic acid, and Aloe vera. The SE Microbiome Complex® is a unique blend of S. epidermidis prebiotics and postbiotics. That’s what kills C. acnes, the acne-causing bacteria while nourishing acne-fighting bacteria on your skin. The result is a balanced microbiome that delivers long-lasting effect. The salicylic acid dissolves dead skin cells, which opens clogged pores. Aloe vera soothes the skin and reduces inflammation, redness, pain, hyper-pigmentation (dark spots), and scarring. If you track your progress with the Dermala Acne Tracker app (it’s free, app store, iOS/Android - you know the drill), we will adjust the ratio between these ingredients monthly, based on your results.
  • CLEANSE with Benefits AM/PM Cleanser - Cleansers are a paradox: they have to clean away dirt and oil, but can’t over-dry the skin. Getting ours right took a patented SE Microbiome Complex® that targets acne-causing bacteria and helps the acne-fighting strains to flourish. It also took natural plant extracts, amino acids, vitamins, and a slightly acidic pH, because that’s what helps fight acne. (Typical cleansers have alkaline pH, which is bad for acne.) Break it all down and you’ve got a powerful cleanser, healthier skin, and less acne. Paradox solved.
  • SUPPLEMEANT to Be® Daily Pre + Probiotic Mix - You can’t just swallow a bunch of probiotics and get a magically healthier gut microbiome. If a supplement doesn’t correctly balance a lot of different elements, you’re just *ahem* flushing them down the drain. Ours is an exclusive blend of:

    Prebiotic Mix PreforPro® is a combination of bacteriophages formulated to attack bad bacteria in the gut to make space for good probiotic bacteria (science!).

    Probiotic Mix consists of 6.25 billion CFUs of probiotic bacteria that have been specifically associated with reduction of inflammatory acne and improved skin health.

    Zinc is a natural antibiotic that has reduced acne severity in clinical trials.

    Vitamins A, C, E are the best vitamins to restore skin health after acne breakouts.

    Spinach leaf extract is a super blend of antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals that nurture the good bacteria in your gut.

    All those nutrients help the probiotics to do their thing: balance the gut microbiome, optimize gut health, support your immune system, reduce the oiliness of your skin, bring down inflammation throughout your body, and most importantly, help kill off acne-causing C. acnes bacteria.
  • PATCH Me (If You Can)® Targeted Pimple Patches - There are escape-artist pimples that no amount of skin nourishment or microbiome balancing can lock down. Fortunately, you’ve got back-up, our clear, drug-free, disposable hydrocolloid acne pimple patches. They vacuum up oil and pus, reduce inflammation, speed up healing, and prevent the bacteria from spreading. They also lower the pH in the area under the patch which inhibits bacterial growth and protect against UVB witch helps prevent hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and scarring
  • CLEANSE With Benefit AM/PM Cleanser - Just like the name says, use it in the morning and evening (AM/PM) before applying SCANTILY Pad topical acne treatment. Mix a quarter-sized amount of cleanser with water and gently massage onto skin for 30-60 seconds. Rinse off thoroughly. Pat skin dry with a clean towel.
  • SCANTILY Pad® AM/PM Acne Treatment - The BFF with CLEANSE with Benefits. Use them together, every morning and evening. Cleanse the skin and pat dry. Use one pad to gently apply the solution all over the face, avoiding the eye area. We recommend starting with one application per day (either morning or evening), then gradually increase to two applications per day. If dryness occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day until your skin has adjusted. Patch-test before the first use.
  • PATCH Me (If You Can)® Targeted Pimple Patches - Use it on clean and completely dry skin. Peel a patch from the sheet and apply it onto a pimple. Leave it on for at least an hour or overnight for best results. A change in color to white indicates pus absorbance. Remove the patch by peeling it off. If necessary, use warm water for easier removal. Throw it away and get on with life!
  • SUPPLEMEANT To Be® Daily Pre + Probiotic Mix - Take one capsule daily with a meal. Either swallow the capsule whole with water; or twist the capsule, pull it apart, and sprinkle the contents on food or in a drink of your choice. One capsule per day keeps bad bacteria (and acne) away!

Great Personalized Solution to Acne-Prone Skin!!

I have now been using this product for 3 weeks and I have seen great improvements in my skin! My before and after photos so far show that I have less frequent, smaller, and less-red breakouts. The cleanser is gentle for my skin but does leave me feeling more dry (but after my entire routine I am fine), the acne pads are great (i recommend letting your face air dry before continuing with your routine), I LOVE the probiotic mix supplements!! I was so excited about the pimple patches but they unfortunately did not work for me. They would keep falling off before the hour or even overnight and I would never see the change to white as it suggested (it removes the pus); I think this would work best if you have pustule acne! overall, really happy with these products and can't wait to finish them!!

Love this Kit for Hormonal Acne

I've had severe acne for years as a teen and for a short while after I turned 20. The only cure was accutane, and now that that's over all I'm left to deal with now is hormonal, sometimes painful, cystic acne. I looked into treatments a few months back when my acne started to come back but the topical stuff wasn't good enough on it's own. But this kit does what those treatments can't, it offers pre and probiotics that help calm my skin as well. I stopped using it for a while when I was almost running out and my acne started to come back again, but to be clear it's never fully gone away after the post-Accutane glow was over. However, after not taking it for weeks it did irritate my stomach when I tried to start taking them again, but that's to be expected with most probiotics. Still, it's not a complete cure since I still have plenty of hormonal acne that will probably sadly never go away, and I still do break out a lot around that time of the month, but this definitely helps keep my acne at bay at least. On the plus side the salicylic pads are also great and definitely help too, but I can do without the cleanser and the patches. I find the cleanser is just ok for me since it surprisingly too gentle actually and the patches don't work at all for me really, I've tried multiple with my cystic breakouts and they never seem to go away even after leaving the patches on all night. To summarize, the pads and probiotics are great, but the cleanser and patches are not so great, at least for hormonal acne. It'll probably work for regular zits like whiteheads. :) (FYI: These pictures are in fluorescent bathroom lighting which does me no favors, but not even that can capture how bad my skin looks in real life because my phone camera is a bit outdated.)

Loving these products

My skin is feeling great even if I'm still experiencing breakouts. It's only been two weeks and I will be able to better give details after a month but they do make your skin feel amazing clean and soft
