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.

It works, period.

Skin Concerns: Blackheads, Uneven Skin Tone

Male, 37 years old (May 2018), combination skin, blackheads

Used consistenly this product just works. Period. I am lucky enough that I do not have sensitive skin, so I can't say if this is too aggressive or drying. Ijust has worked for me. I haven't bought it again because I am in that moment where I like trying many different products. But I would definitely recommend this to anyone willing to refine their skin by eliminating blackheads. (No, I haven't tried the famed Paula's Choice BHA's, so I can't make any comparison...)
