Patience is key with any skincare routine. I saw results quickly, but it's taken almost 5 months of consistent use to get to a place where I feel comfortable leaving the house without makeup. I combine this product with Up&Up benzoyl peroxide 10%. After months of expensive creams prescribed by my de...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is my cure-all. I have been waiting all my life, for something I don't have to end up paying over $500.00 dollars for. No doctor visits, no $199.00 for a "years" worth of product that lasts 3 months. IT CLEARS UP MY (CYSTIC) ACNE!!!!. There is 1 side effect, IT HEALS MY OLD (CYSTIC) SCARS!!!!!....see moreof the reviewer's review

I read a lot of good reviews for this so I thought I'd give it a try. After about 4 days I had red itchy patches on my face I have pretty sensitive skin so this didnt work for me if you have sensitive skin don't use this!

I am not happy with this product. I have used many acne products and this one is one of the worst for me. I started using this product as directed and after 4 days my skin got really dry. That was fine, I'm used to that because I have sensitive skin. So I switched to using it every other day. After ...see moreof the reviewer's review
