It irritated my rosacea skin, stinging and making my face peel in the surrounding area. I've had no issues with other La Roche Posay products so this was a surprise. And since Target is not accepting returns due to COVID-19, I'm out the $30.
After reading reviews, I wanted this product to work. It didn’t reduce my acne or make them smaller. Instead, it made my skin red and burn like a sunburn. This has never happened before with acne products. Very disappointed with this product. I threw away the box so I can’t even return it.
A little goes a long way. I use on my entire face, and have seen a tremendous difference in the surface and texture in my skin since I began using it. My skin hasn't been this clear in a long time thanks to this regimen that I'm using.
This really helps clear my active acne that I tend to get from my cheeks to my jaw. I noticed a difference pretty quickly that my skin was just flatter. I have pretty reactive skin, so usually only use really natural products. But the last few weeks using this, my mom looked at me and said- wow your skin looks really clear. I use this only at night with no other acids, just an aloe moisturizer and rosehip oil a couple times a week.. hope this helps someone :)
