This product didn't really work for me, I think it was too harsh for my skin. Tried multiple times.

ALREADY NOTICE A DIFFERENCE

So this product just came in a couple days ago, and i used it for the first time last night. At first it did sting a little and itch, but i have super sensitive skin, and well this is a chemical exfoliant, but when i woke up today. I could already see a slight difference. my skin texture looked a lot better than it usually does! and my skin is glowing not greasy or oily looking. I will continue to use this. Hopefully don't experience purging, but ik it can happen

Skin felt oily and did nothing

The consistency of the product left my already oily skin feelings so much more oily and even after using it for a while, I saw no decrease in the amount of bumps on my face. I guess the only good thing is I don't think it made my acne worse, it just never helped.

This product changed my life!

As someone who has struggled their whole life with acne, I cannot believe how well this product works. I really appreciate the liquid formula, it applies so flawlessly to my oily/combination skin. It does feel a bit "oily" at first, but it dries down while still feeling hydrating. I use this in combination with the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide and let me tell you, what a powerful combo! I will say, do NOT go by the packaging recommendation for application. Start slow and work your way up. I don't have sensitive skin and i didn't seem to have any trouble with using this twice daily, at first. I was using this product and the benzoyl treatment twice daily, every day and after a few months my moisture barrier was completely destroyed. The progress I made on my skin was gone and my skin was breaking out very badly. After removing all products except cleanser and moisturizer for about a month, I slowly started working in the BHA and Benzoyl products a couple times a week (I now use both 3x weekly on different days) and I am happy to report that after consistent use for about a 9 months I'm basically breakout free! Do try this, you wont regret it!

cleared up my maskne!

I have very sensitive skin and recently my maskne had gotten really out of hand. This product has saved my face! I use it after I wash my face with a gentle sulfur cleanser morning and night. I use it with the reusable cotton rounds. It's amazing. My skin is so much clearer than it was a month ago.

Highly recommended!

I really love this product! I have sensitive, redness prone skin so I am always hesitant to try new products. I've been using this for about 4 months now, and I notice a big difference! My skin is visibly smoother and my pores appear a little smaller. Overall my complexion is more even. I used to use this product just by rubbing it into my face with my hands, but I've gotten better results by using reusable thin cotton rounds! I'm glad I found this product and it's now a staple in my skin care routine.

Be patient and you will see results!

I always had clear skin, I would even sleep in my make up with no consequences! I recently have struggled at 26 with some hormonal acne and nothing was working. It was cystic on my cheeks and on my jaw and neck. I ordered this and played around with my routine. I use this once a day now and only wash once a day (best for me) and it is working. I finally have some control. It took about 2 months though. I was so close to quitting multiple times thinking it was just out of my hands but I stayed consistent and the difference is night and day. I am assuming it is bringing breaks out to the surface that we're already there it's just accelerating the process once you get past that you will be good to go!

Great for my hormonal acne!

I've had acne for well over a decade and tried every topical under the sun + three rounds of accutane. My skin broke out horribly when mask mandates started. I felt so hopeless and tried a sample of this on a whim. My skin has cleared SIGNIFICANTLY and the bumpy texture I had all over my face disappeared in a couple months. I probably use this forever lol.
