It worked...and fast! My engagement photos were approaching quickly, and I was frustrated with the state of my skin. I tried this kit and within a few days (about 3) I could visibly see a difference. Acne shrunk, skin tone evened, and generally my skin looked better. Great product!  see moreof Mollie's review

    I liked the product at first, as it starting helping with my acne right away. Then I felt like it started making even small, simple blemishes scar, so even though the zits is taken care of it still looks like I have a blemish in that spot. :/  see moreof AshleyL's review

      I don't typically have acne, but when I do it's hormonal and this product didn't seem to do much for that particular acne type. I think it's a good system to use if you have sensitive skin that can't handle a more aggressive treatment regimen.

        This acne product works great and super fast! I noticed clearer skin within just a few days. It is very gently as well, I have not experienced any irritation or dryness. I love this product and will definitely be buying more once I run out! Just a warning though, it did cause my face towel and pillo...  see moreof michelle's review

          I have hormonal cystic acne. I thought I’d try this and stop taking my antibiotics. Bad idea. Used for 4 days and my whole face started to peel and it was burning like fire. It took 4 days of heavy moisturizer being applied 3 times daily the get my face to look slightly normal again. I’ve been using...  see moreof Saucony's review

            It worked wonders for the first day or two that I used it BUT.... the tone made my forehead shiny, not even oily just shiny, like it any overhead lighting reflected off my forehead which has never happened before. Also the spot treatment worked but dried me out like crazy!!!! I have oily skin and my...  see moreof littlefish's review

              I’ve been using it for a little more than a week, it’s great! I haven’t used anything so effective like these products. Besides I don’t see my skin as dry as when I use other products.  see moreof Marina's review

                Too gentle to treat my adult acne. Also, the benzoyl peroxide treatment pills on your face when you put makeup on top of it. This was a dealbreaker for me because it can’t be used at night unless you want to bleach out your pillow case (benzoyl peroxide WILL bleach out whatever it touches).  see moreof Andrea of Ocala's review
