I got this to help with some acne on my jawline it was helping the first day I used it but mind you I only used a thin layer once a day after I take a shower and cleanse my face. By the 3rd day I broke out more was very itchy and red and more bumps started to occur on my jawline to my neck area. Feels like an allergic reaction or something I am never using this product again nor do I recommend it idk why they even sell it most of these reviews are bad reviews about it maybe that’s why drs don’t prescribe it any more or even recommend it anymore. It just made my problem worse and now even more embarrassing

Allergic Reaction (I think)

To be fair, I have seen reviews of this product stating that it did wonders and gave them great results in regards to their acne. However for those with sensitive skin, a heads up that this might be too harsh for you. I simply used a dab of this product on 3 small areas where I had an ongoing breakout. Everything seemed fine at first, but I gradually developed a rash covering most of my face. It is red, itchy, and has tiny bumps. I do have sensitive skin, so this might work for others, but not me.

Words can’t even describe how much I love this product. I’ve struggled with acne my entire life and tried every type of product, scrub, medication out there. After my worst breakout ever (I refused to leave my house) and many tears I gave this a shot in the dark and I am SO happy I did. Within days my acne started to clear up. I’ve now been using it for four years and I’ll never go back! Haven’t had a bad acne outbreak since. I don’t want to sound dramatic but this product changed my life.

My face broke out more than it ever has

I bought this because I had just gotten off of birth control and my skin started to break out a bit. Thought it was because of stress, so I used this product religiously. Never dried out my skin, and felt like it worked wonders, but couldn’t figure out why my face was breaking out worse than it ever has. It wasn’t until I went to get a facial and the lady who did it said to stay away from Benzoyl Peroxide and use salicylic acid instead. Very disappointed with how badly this made my face break it and would never use again. Once I stopped using it, my skin cleared up in no time. Would not recommend.

My sister gave me this product knowing to I get random pimples very often. I accepted and was excited to try it. The first night I put it on it was itchy and I waved it off as normal. However, the next morning I woke up to red, swollen, dry patches on my skin. I was so distraught. I had to leave my house that morning looking like a sun dried tomato.

I have struggled with acne for years. It has subsided significantly but I still breakout constantly especially on my forehead. I picked up this product randomly and applied it twice a day to my forehead. My pimples went down within TWO DAYS!! My skin keeps getting better and I highly recommend this to anyone having breakouts!

I am a 13 year old teenager and I have a mild case of acne. Bumps and breaks, the regular. I went to the doctor and they said to use Products with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. So I go to my local Walmart and I asked the pharmacist what I should get for acne with the Materials. They told me this product is recommended by doctors And dermatologist. I started to use is for a day putting it on all my affected areas. My face looked horrible and filled with bumps in those areas. But, I kept on using it the second day and the next day I noticed that the bumps were minimizing. The next day they were still the same. About a week passed and my face was cleared. This product is one of the most affective products I’ve used in the start of my teen age years(8- present ). I highly recommend this product.

I bought it and to help my acne of my forehead and it ended up leaving my whole forehead feeling like sandpaper. The rest of my face is smooth but my forehead has tiny bumps over the whole thing and is rough.
