THIS HAS WORKED FOR ME WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE DIDN'T. I ALSO WAS PUT ON MINOCYCLINE 100MG X2 A DAY AT THE SAME TIME. MID 30'S AND WAS GETTING AWFUL, EMBARRASING PAINFUL PIMPLES? ACNE? ON MY CHEST NECK JAWLINE, HAIRLINE. ANYWAYS IM PRETTY AGAIN:)
I used this product daily. I thought it would tremendously help my adult acne (which to me is bad). Yet it did not give me the results I was looking for. I had the idea that the Benzoyl Peroxide would help to stabalize my acne, but it did not. I have to say that this bottle went a long way.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
My skin has always been nearly PERFECT and I used to always get complements and did not have to use any concelers, foundations, NADA! But few years after hitting the big 30 and lots of stress, my skin just turned into HUGE MESS, to point I'd cry every time I looked in the mirror - constant breakouts, deep cysts and postules, almost as if I got some sort of infection! My austetician who I've been seeing for over 10 years for regular facials every 3 months or so, was shocked when she saw all that mess! She made a list of products I should start using and sure enough, in a month my skin is sooo much better. This cleanser is actually the key - it is gentle, does not irritate or overdry your skin yet cleans it thoroughly and is anti-bacterial too, so prevent future break outs. I use it DAILY in am and pm, and LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! So does my, now glowing and almost back to its usual "porcelain doll" skin - as some people commented before :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I tried this product with hesitation...I didn't expect it to work... This item works great! It has kept my skin pretty much blemish free since the first day using it. It does not dry the skin out, does not burn the eyes...makes my skin feel very soft and smooth. I actually no longer need a moisturizer...it makes your face feel that good... but still use an oil free with sunscreen protection when going outdoors.
Start with one treatment daily or as directed by a physician. Apply a small amount of cleanser to damp skin with fingertips and massage into a light foaming lather. Wash in a gentle circular motion. Rinse with warm (not hot) water and pat dry.
If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow 5% BPO Cleanser to dry, then follow sunscreen label directions. If irritation or sensitivity develops, discontinue use of both products and consult a physician.
