    Although fragrance was not listed on the drugstore.com website when I purchased, it did appear as an ingredient on the product label. I loved this product until the manufacturer started adding that strong fragrance. I understand that the smell of sulfur is not really pleasant, but it wasn't bad enough to stop me from using the product. Before the fragrance change, it was definitely one of the most effective acne products I've used. My teen son and I both used it and came to rely heavily on it. Unfortunately, the fragrance makes it unusable for me because I am very sensitive to scents. I tried to allow my son to use the scented version but the fragrance lingers so much that I couldn't stand to be around him - not even in the same room. AND he left a scent trail around the house. If you are sensitive to smells and get headaches from strong fragrances as I do, I would stay far away from this product. I cannot attest to the efficacy of the product since the fragrance addition. Hopefully the manufacturer did not change anything else. My fingers are crossed that they go back to the original fragrance-free formula.

    I've used this product for a few years and it's done a great job of healing pimples and keeping my face clear. However, I just ordered a new jar and it now has a strong, harsh fragrance. I didn't mind the original sulfur smell, though a lot of people were put off by it (c'mon people...it's sulfur). The new fragrance makes my face burn/tingle, so I'll probably have to discontinue it. Please bring the old formula back, De La Cruz :(

      I used this based on recommendations for acne. I don't have acne, but I do get the occasional (huge) pimples. I bought this for spot treatments hoping. I've used this now and didn't really find it effective. What's been working and is amazing is activated charcoal; will use that from now on instead.

            I was not impressed with this product. It says to put on and rinse off, but I left it on (no rinsing) and it did a "little bit" of drying up, but not nearly enough. I used this on my back...a lot of breakouts for some reason (stress?). Would not buy again.

                I have battled acne my entire life. It seems that every few years, what had been working becomes ineffective, and I have to start at ground zero to find something that works. Last year, at 46 years old, I had one of the worst bouts of acnes in over 10 years. Nothing worked, including very expensive antibiotics from a fancy dermatologist. Then I found De la Cruz Sulfur. My skin is now clear!

                    I have sulfur products that I use on my face and I had hoped this would be an inexpensive alternative to my $25 Mario Badescu Drying Cream. I was VERY WRONG. This product is awful for my face, smells badly, and is not effective. I don't recommend it for any use other than perhaps on calloused feed and hands.

                        Clears acne and keeps clear. I have tried all types of products this one has worked the best and is one of the least expensive.
