Rated 5 out of 5 by madelyn The best acne treatment I've tried in 25 years
I have combination skin with acne. I've tried everything available over the counter. Most with little results except for dry flaky skin. I use this at night before bed and sometimes in the morning during a certain time of the month. Within 2 days my skin was so much clearer. The Red spots were much lighter. It even makes wrinkles less noticeable. I have fewer breakouts than I have ever had. I've been using this for about 8 months. I love it. I don't think I could live without it now. Sometimes in cooler weather my skin gets a little dry. No problem. I just apply a light mineral oil free moisturizer all over my face after my morning wash. Voila! Beautiful skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A nice lady from KC Amazing product, bottom line-end of story...
I tried this product because of the high ratings it received from Beautypedia. It is a must have for me now. My skin looks better than ever. I have been using this daily for a few months now, and the only time I ever get blemishes now is the one I get every month from hormones. I have always and will always get a blemish once monthly due to hormones. I hope they continue to make this product, it is a staple for my skin care routine. Once in the am, and once in the pm daily. It only takes a thin layer, which absorbs nicely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cori Didn't work for me
I bought this as a replacement for another product I was using that has been discontinued. This product felt very heavy on my skin and had way too much perfume in it. By the end of my first week of use, I was breaking out like crazy for the first time in months. My skin doesn't feel or look any less oily than it did before with this product. It may work for some people but not for me.

I recently developed oily skin out of left field. It's making me want to come to tears because I've never dealt with it and don't know how to make it go away. I'm sure I've purchased everything in the market to help with this issue and nothing seems to work. I recently decided to purchase this treatment and it has gradually begun to work. My skin isn't dry and it seems to be absorbing that icky oil that's been covering my face. I'm not shining as much nor having to use my oil absorbing sheets as much. The product goes on smoothly and feels seamless on my face. I'm very happy so far. Fingers crossed this continues to work well.

I used this product, and it made my face feel sticky and gross. It was like applying oily lotion. It did not control shine and was a waste of my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 Pretty Spectacular
I have very oily skin in general. Like if I don't use blotting sheets throughout the day my face will be a complete oil slick. My pores just ooze oil. It's terrible. I also have some pretty consistent, small acne that covers majority of my face.
I saw this product and gave it a look and liked the fact that it promised to treat both oil and acne. Okay, it had my attention. I took a gamble and decided to buy it.
I have been using it for a little less than a week and I have only used it once a day so far. Not really enough time for it to make a huge difference in acne, but I have noticed immediate results in oil production. I've especially noticed when I'm just at home all day and not wearing any mineral powder make up. So far it has amazed me on the oil absorbing part.
Okay, so it baffles me when people complain so much about products like this drying out their skin so therefore it doesn't work. It has salicylic acid. That's what salicylic acid does. Here's how to fix it: MOISTURIZE. Your problem will be solved as long as you don't over use the treatment. The drier your skin gets the more oil it is going to produce to make up for it. I use a toner and I use this treatment after and then use moisturizer on top of it so my face won't dry out. It has worked so far. It doesn't compromise the treatment. It still makes my face A LOT less oily than usual.
This stuff is seriously a godsend for people like me who have an obnoxious amount of oil production! So just use a little moisturizer with it and you should be okay. :)

I was excited to try this product for my oily skin. It works pretty well. My face was oily by afternoon and even dried my skin out some. Dried out my skin, yet left it shiny.

I have very oily skin. I wash my face and within 30 minutes I will begin to see oil breaking through on my skin. I used the clean and clear oil absorbing sheets (which I cannot live without) and can fill 2 of those an hour after I wash my face.
I purchased this product because I thought it could take the place of my moisturizer and help to control the oil on my skin. This did not control the oil (literally no change in my oil production), and it caused me to breakout. This clogged my pores. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with extremely oily skin, or skin that is prone to breakouts only because this may clog your pores.
