This is a great blemish fighter and exfoliant all in one. I have an oily T-zone, normal cheeks, and am VERY acne prone. Normally I have a few inflamed acne areas, mostly on the sides of my mouth and chin, but occasionally my cheeks and forehead suffer as well. The biggest annoyance to me though are the tiny little blackheads and whiteheads that run from the areas next to my nose down to my chin. It's like two little minefields of tiny, under-the-skin bumps that are soooo hard to get red of. I know exfoliation is the key to getting rid of this kind of acne, but manual exfoliation like with a cloth, brush, or scrub is too harsh for my skin and makes me break out even more from the irritation. So I decided to look for a chemical exfoliant that would address my other skin issues as well (the half-dozen or so inflamed acne spots that always seem to pop up, and acne scarring from previous breakouts). This product does all those things and more! I use it at night only because I find that it is a little bit tacky after application and it sort of feels like it's just sitting on top of my skin (which makes sense because it's an exfoliant). I only wear a light layer of mineral powder in the daytime but even that is hard apply over a layer of this ecco bella liquid exfoliant so I stick to night time use only. Another plus is that it is slightly moisturizing and since my skin never really runs on the dry side, I can get away with washing with a gentle cleanser in the evening (Andalou Naturals Citrus Kombucha Cleansing Gel, which I LOVE) and then applying a light layer of this blemish fighter/exfoliant liquid and that's it. I never feel like my skin needs extra moisture after applying this. One of the main ingredients is aloe vera so that's probably why. The sticky feeling took a little while for me to get used to but it doesn't bother me anymore. Your face won't stick to your pillowcase or anything, but it doesn't really sink into your face like other products do so that might take some getting used to.
I think the lemon in this is what has helped with my inflamed acne. Lemon is anti-bacterial in nature (hence why it's used so often in cleaning products) and I can definitely tell a difference in the size and redness of my inflamed acne in the morning after I've used this vs. a night where I didn't use it. The AHA's in this help reduce the appearance of scarring and discoloration while the BHA's (Salicylic Acid) help bring those whiteheads and blackheads to the surface. That being said, I did notice a purging effect that lasted a couple of weeks. The little whiteheads under the surface of my skin came to the top and at first I thought the product was giving me more acne. I stuck with it though, figuring that the gunk stuck in my pores had to get out somehow. After a couple weeks, I noticed less inflamed acne, the whiteheads under my skin were starting to go away and my acne scars had faded considerably. If you are using this to get rid of whiteheads, I encourage you to not get discouraged. Your face may look worse for a little bit because this product causes your pores to purge all those oil plugs that have been stuck in there. Just stick with it and I'm sure you will see results!
I know this is a long review but I'm almost done, I promise! I just want to add a word of caution: Don't use this product twice a day. For someone with sensitive skin I would even say using it every other night might be better. It is very strong and too much of it can cause irritation. Because it has all those lovely acids, it can also burn if you put it on open skin. So be careful. Other than that one caveat, it is a lovely product that does what it advertises. Also, some have said that the smell puts them off, but I like it. It's an herbal/floral/woody sort of smell. It's very unique but it reminds me of playing in the woods and climbing trees as a kid, so I personally like it a lot. Great product, a little expensive for me, but it lasts quite a while and works so well I don't mind shelling out a little more than usual for it. Sorry for this book of a review but I rely on other people's reviews for many of my cosmetic and facial care purchases and I like it when reviews provide lots of details, so I like to return the favor. Hope I helped! :)

This product probably does a good job of controlling mild acne for individuals with clogged pores, so I would recommend it to those who just have mild acne - blackheads and non-inflamed whiteheads. This did not work (after use for 2 months) for my moderate acne, which is a problem of clogged pores and p. acnes bacteria. So I do not recommend it to those with moderate or severe acne - inflamed whiteheads. It didn't make my breakouts worse, but it did not help. I thought the smell was nice and light, I'd describe it as "naturally perfumey", both floral and herbal. It left my skin feeling sticky, even though I only applied a thin layer. So, if you're looking for something to fight the occasional pimple or two, but not more severe than that, try this.

I used this 2x a day for a few weeks, and wasn't happy. I have very oily, acne-prone skin with large pores, and this was making my skin shinier faster when I'd wear it under makeup. It soaks in and feels dry, but turns to shine rather quickly. Feeling disappointed (because I'm always searching for a cure for my terrible skin, and hoped I'd found it with this product), I put it on a shelf in my medicine cabinet. But a few more weeks went by, and my skin was breaking out worse than ever. So I pulled this off the shelf to give it another try. This time, I decided to only use it at night. I cleanse and dry, use Ecco Bella exfoliant, then follow by patting my face with a drop of jojoba mixed with 2 drops of tea tree oil. My skin is as blemish-free as it's ever been (it should be noted I also started using Juice Organics antioxidant serum during the day). I would have given 5 stars, but held one star back because it makes me oily.

Comments about Ecco Bella Leave-On Invisible Exfoliant & Blemish Remedy, 2 fl oz:

This stuff is great! I was looking for something with more natural ingredients to replace the Murad exfoliating acne gel I had been using. Don't get me wrong, the Murad stuff was great, I'm just nervous and was looking for more organic and natural ingredients. I tried the Juice beauty acne gel/serum, which was good but not as strong. This stuff is strong and I can only use it once a day (just like the Murad), but it does seem to keep my awful adult acne in check. My skin also seems less oily since I started using about a month ago. It smells nice, absorbs well, and a little goes a long way. I use a few drops every morning, and after four weeks, the bottle is till mostly full. It's definitely worth it. If I used too much, I get flakey in spots, but that's easy to prevent. Good-bye, breakouts!

I have never found a "true" exfoliant that works until I found this one. It does exactly what the label says it will do. It smoothes out the dry areas and the fine wrinkles. I even use it on my legs that get bumpy. It dries up blemishes, without harsh chemicals or alcohol--a great find.
