I know it's so cliche to say, "I've tried everything" when it comes to treating acne, but I've really tried everything! I have struggled with mild to moderate acne since junior high and have always had a major problem with blackheads. I am now 26 years old and things haven't gotten much better. I have used prescription products from my dermatologist like Accutane and Tazorac, I've used TV products like Proactiv and probably just about everything on the drugstore shelves. I have an oily t-zone and some dry patches and have struggled with acne on an on-going basis. As horrible as it sounds, I'm guily of picking at my skin which leaves me with red marks and scars. After several trips to the derm for a more permanent solution, she finally advised me to get back to basics. She recommended I use a very gentle frangrance-free cleanser, moisterizer with SPF and a spot treatment. I picked up this product on a whim while grocery shopping and have been amazed by the results. I immediately noticed a difference in my skin texture after using it for only a few days. Over the course of 3 weeks, I noticed significant lightening of my red scars and improved texture on the blackheads along my jawline. I still get small zits here and there, but they are small and seem to disappear quickly. I'm very, very pleased with my results!

I bought this creme after reading the glowing reviews on how much it cleared up acne and reduced the acne scars. I admit, I was so excited about this product that I did not research the product as much as I should have.

Essentially, it works well enough. It has salicylic acid, so it will help clear up your face a bit if you haven't been using it till you try this product. It also has some nice anti-scar ingredients that will help reduce red spots.

BUT, for people that intend to use this as more than a spot treatment on a daily basis, don't waste your time. The container is too small for that, and honestly the product isn't really worth buying in large amounts. Just use Vitamin E oil for the scars, and if you want a nice salicylic acid moisturizer try Clean&Clear's Advantage moisturizer. Both work just as well, and save you a ton of money.

TIP: For adult acne sufferers like myself that are desperately looking for a solution, try researching Omega-3 and Vitamin D and see if it might be a cure for you. I've been having a lot of luck, and was able to swear off salicylic acid and benzoil peroxide for good :) Expect lots of skin purging, though...

    Comments about Sudden Change Scar Zone A, Acne Treatment + Acne Scar Diminishing Cream, .5 oz:

    Apply on clean skin primarily. But the gel also disappears and treats acne (diminishes redness and flattens inflammation) if dabbed carefully over makeup in the case of a sudden breakout during the day. The gently rounded applicator tip allows application without getting it on fingertips. It also allows for easy cleaning with an alcohol swab, for example, to keep the product tip sterile for re-use. Great for teenagers to use too, because it's easy and discreet. It does not smell or damage cloth and barely shows on skin while it's quickly working to clear acne.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Speedy delivery and great prices on the wide range of products offered.

        This cream is amazing. I hate the gel type since they get oily and icky. However, this cream is like a very soothing lotion perfect for my skin. All my break outs cleared out and not only that, my skin is so soft and clear. I love this product. The best purchase I made so far. I have very sensitive skin so I'm very limited to what to use on my face. However, this product is AMAZINGGGGGGG! I'm ordering more before I run out.

          I have spent thousands of dollars on big brand acne items, including the dermatologist. This is by far the BEST acne med I have EVER used. I use it morning and night. It gets to the blemish before it really has a chance to start. I get cystic pimples and tiny white heads or should I say I use to....around 6 dollars a tube. I can't recommend this product enough....FANTASTIC.

            I use this before bed after my toner. I love that it doesnt smell or dry out my skin. I put it on and let my skin absorb it for 5-10 minutes before i wear my night lotion. I have been using it for two weeks and I can see a significant change in my skin; my acne scars and fading and my skin texture is becoming more smooth. I use a combination of products and this seems to complement them in stopping breakouts and drying out existing acne. I also like the fact that you can apply it directly from the tube without having to your ur fingers; it saves on the product and you dont need to wash your hands before wearing the next layer of skin care product. I only wish it came in a bigger tube! absolutely love it.

                I use this twice per day after washing with a 2% Salicylic Acid soap, like Aveeno bar soap. I agree with someone else on this board. Benzoyl Peroxide has become very irritating and I think I have developed an allergy to all BP products. I was using Klear Action kits which was helping, but then developed reddened patches and itchy blisters. After discontinuing the BP products, plus having to go back on Minocin for the Acne Rosacea, it took two months of antibiotic therapy while using Salicylic Acid products, including cosmetics that contain low doses of SA and today I woke up to almost completely clear skin. I think everyone is an idvidual and all forms of acne take diligence, vigilence, working with your doctor and a whole lot of trial and error until you find what works the best for you.

                  I bought this product due to its great reviews. It worked well the first few days I used it, then all of a sudden it stopped. I noticed a reduction in redness and pimple size, but overall it hasn't done much for clearing up my acne or lightening my scars. I have been using Scar Zone for over a week now and am disappointed with the results. However I did find that this product does not dry out my skin or cause irritation, which is nice. Also in some reviews I noticed people complaining about the smell. I'd like to say that in my opinion the smell isn't bad at all. It's actually far better than most other acne treatments I've used in the past.
                  Overall I'd recommend this product to people with minor acne problems. For people like myself with significant scarring and acne, I wouldn't suggest trying Scar Zone.

                    I have mild acne, mostly on my cheeks and chin. Normally a combination of benzoil peroxide cleanser and spot treatment keeps my skin relatively clean, but pregnancy left me with some dark spots/scars (because I have a horrible habit of picking at blemishes). I bought this based on stellar reviews hoping that it would fade those spots. My first impression - eeew, what an awful smell! This stuff smells like an old, dirty, wet rag, no kidding. But I decided to give it a chance anyway. I put it on before bed. In the morning, my face was breaking out all over, even in places where it NEVER breaks out (like my forehead). Horrible, horrible stuff in every respect. A complete waste of money.
