    over-dry your skin.

Directions

Because this is a medicine, it’s super important to start with clean skin.

So wash your face then apply a thin layer over your face. You can do this up to 3 times a day.

If your skin starts to dry out or peel, reduce your use to once a day.

So i've got a few pimples and pimple marks which i'd like to get rid of so i tired this product and i thought it was working but it made my spots more red and horrible and it's just the worst product to use. Not good for sensitive skin. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have sensitive skin.

I bought this after experiencing good things while using Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Cleanser. When I first put it on, it worked on fading pimples that were already on their way out. However, when I used it on pimples that just started the results were awful. It made those pimples redder and more pus filled than I normally experience. I held on for about a week before becoming frustrated, especially since I never had the product do anything in 4 hours. The following day I saw an improvement. It wasn't dramatic, but it was definitely better. I don't know if, combined with the cleanser, it was too much for my skin or what, but I don't think I'll use this regularly anymore. Since I spent money on it, I may use it to see if it helps in an 'emergency' zit situation, but I won't be buying it again.

I love this stuff, I've used it for several years. The first time I used it, it started working in 1 day and by day 3 or 4 it made blemishes dry up and disappear.

After numerous attempts to try to clear up my face for years I finally found a product! It seems like all other face washes/treatment didn't seem to work but this is completely effective AND works quickly. I definitely recommend washing your face before applying it.
