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:

      I've been suffering from acne since puberty, which is well over 10 years, unfortunately. In this time I've tried many different remedies with different results, and usually i get better results from home made & natural products than store bought ones, so i was really surprised when this actually did what it advertised! As soon as i feel a pimple forming, i clean the area with a q- tip with some tea tree oil or witch hazel & get some of this stuff on it. I let it sit for a couple mins then rub it in & cover it with organic mineral powder foundation, which actually adheres better with this stuff underneath. This speeds the healing time by at least half and is just great for the red marks, which is what really impressed me! Nothing else I've tried has gotten rid of the acne marks so quickly, my second place is pure lemon oil. I took off a star because the tube is so small for the price! But it IS worth it for the results! Will def reorder!

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

        I have been using Scar Zone Acne for more than five years now. It is the most effective solution I've ever used. Almost right after you put it on...it begins to work. I cannot tell you how many times I will get a very sore, red pimple that comes up out of nowhere - I use Scar Zone - and within a few hours I have forgotten how bad it really was. You cannot even tell that the pimples were there after about two days.

        It is very soothing as well, since there is green tea in it.

        It is too bad there are so many cons and bad reviews on the product. My best friend uses it too, and her acne tends to be a lot worse than mine - and she loves it!

        Give it a try!

          I've been using this product and noticed no difference in my mild red marks left behind from acne.

          When I looked at the back of the tube I see that it just contains the exact same ingredients as any other salicylic acid spot treatment. So there's really nothing in it specifically to treat scaring at all and it's no different than your drug store brand of salicylic acid acne cream - it's just much more expensive! I should have checked the ingredients first.

          I've used this for 2 months now. For the scar treatment, it does work. But for the acne treatment, I haven't seen any improvement yet. Actually I do not have serious scar or dark spot problem. I care more about acne treatment, so I need to start another search.

            I've been using this product for about 5 months now and I have to say it works great and it works quick. I have adult acne and I know I shouldn't but I mess with my breakouts, resulting in a tomatoe-colored face. I put this on and within an hour the irritation has disappeared and my breakouts are not noticable. I don't know what it is about this cream but it works in terms of that. I also have whiteheads, which this cream does not help with, unfortunately. It is a scar cream after all...

            I put this on in the evening and when I wake up in the morning I look in the mirror and I don't have to worry about any big irritations standing out. .

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

                I think this works best as a preventative acne product. I usually get large, red, sore, under the skin pimples on my chin. Since using this I've only had a few small white heads. I apply it to my problem areas once a day after washing my face. For me this product hasn't had any effect on pimples that are already present, but when I do get them I dab the area with a cotton swab dipped in a tea tree oil/water mixture and it usually is dried up in one or two days. I have only been using this for a few weeks so I can not say for sure if it will diminish any of my acne scars. For now they are just as red/brown as they ever were, but since I haven't gotten any new under the skin blemishes I havent gained any new scars either.
