Works good to treat acne and reduce excess oil
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Blackheads, Large Pores, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I use this for multiple purpose: treat acne, oil control, and exfoliation. I apply this on my skin every night before The Ordinary Niacinamide. The combo works really good on my skin, especially this one dries up my acne fast, removes my blackhead and dead skin cells. Salicylic acid product is a must try if you have oily and acne-prone skin like me. Definitely will repurchase over and over again. REMEMBER that this product can makes your skin more sensitive to sun exposure, so better off using this at night.

Good for spot treatment and acne skin that is not fungal/rosacea
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

If you have rosacea run from this product. It will only make your redness worse.
If you have fungal acne run from this product. It will make you break out.
If you have oil skin and hormonal acne or acne that is not fungal this is great for spot treatment. I don't use in my skin anymore because it makes me break out but my husband it does wonders to dry and heal acne within 2 or 3 days of usage.

Excellent against acne and blemishes
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Blackheads, Large Pores

What did this product do that your previous products didn't?
I really liked this product because it helped me to peel my skin really good without being too harsh fighting against the blackheads and its very calming whenever I get pimples.
I use this after using my cleanser and then I apply sunscreen its very important to wear solar protection and be aware of this when using it.
It also helped to control the sebum and the appearance of my pores was slightly minimized. I used this for 5 months until I finished the whole bottle and one recommendation is to avoid under eye area.
