Like many others, I have used Acnomel for more years than I can count. I started using it as a teenager when it was just called "Acnomel." Apparently, it gew into "Adult Acnomel" along with me and my adult breakouts. Many years later, hormones are wrecking havoc with breakouts, and I don't know what I would do without my Acnomel. I apply a light coat in my T-zone under department-store oil-free makeup to lightly cover blemishes and control oil, and then pat it on with a makeup sponge during the day to eliminate any oily shine. After all these years, I'm a pro at making the cream blend with my makeup and my very fair skin tone, without making anything look caked on.

When I'm at home, and especially at bedtime, I apply a slightly heavier coat to control my oily skin throughout the day/night.

The Acnomel is hard to find. My supermarket pharmacy used to order it special for me, but they could no longer get it. Thankfully, I found it here at drugstore.com! I couldn't live without this product, and I couldn't be happier that I can purchase it here! Please don't ever stop carrying this product! I think I'm an "Acnomel" addict, but it's one of only a few products that actually works with my skin.

I wanted to like this product, I originally bought it to complement the Prosacea (sulfur 1x) that I use during the day for my dermatits/acne ridden visage. I wanted something with a stronger amount of sulfur for the night-time so I thought I would give this a go. Well, it really wasn't for me. I got 4 cyst-like eruptions on my face, including my forehead and I NEVER get acne like that there, not for 15 years now at least. I think it is just too strong for my skin type, I do have pretty oily skin but I found this hard to absorb and blend without adding moisturizer to it. It is pretty cheap so try it for yourself, but beware, it might be too strong for you if you have sensitive skin. I think I will stick to Prosacea, I haven't had anymore problems since I switched back to just that product!

    Comments about Acnomel Adult Acne Medication, 1 oz:

    I started using this product after Clearasil made my skin break out. After using it for a week I noticed that it wasn't healing any of my acne and causing more. I already had a huge break out from Clearasil and now I have even more. I even started getting acne under my skin which I've never gotten before, and A LOT. It left my skin itchy and dry.

          I LOVE this product! I use it every day on acne spots after getting out of the shower and blend it in better by subsequently putting an oil-free daily moisturizer. It effectively makes my blemishes disappear within 24 hrs and had been a complete lifesaver! Love this product and highly recommend it!

          (I'm 25 with oily-dry combo skin type depending on weather/season, ie oily skin in summer/dry in winter; I've used this product year-round with no problem)

            This is helpful for adult acne and rosacea, probably the best product for the latter out there. I'd like a version with no color, so it could be worn under makeup. Aside from that, it's been most helpful to me.

                First time I tried it, it was OK, so I used it next day, then I woke up with this huge red swelling rashes wherever I applied this cream. Some of them even looked like blisters. They were very red, itchy, bumpy and....anyway I had never had such a bad reaction to any medication before. It might happened only to me, but I had to see a dermatologist and ended up paying a fortune.
                I really recommend to apply it on somewhere small on your body first before trying it on your face. I did regret to get this cream and was told never use it again by the doctor.

                    Rarely do I ever take the time to write a review. But, cliche as it may sound, I've tried so many acne products that just didn't work for me. This is the only one that was able to get rid of most of my acne. It has a different active ingredient than most. I guess it just depends on your skin type or the cause of your acne- I don't know- but if the typical salicylic acid products haven't worked for you, then give this a shot.

                    It has a bit of a smell, but it fades quickly, and you don't need to put too much on. I use it overnight, and I also apply it before my daily makeup routine.
