I love what this does for my acne. I never used to break out so when I noticed they were becoming a recurring thing, I immediately started searching for an end-all treatment - and this is it. I usually use this every night to keep any blackheads in check, but when I notice a break out forming, I use this as a spot treatment and there's almost always a noticeable difference the day afterwards. It says that you can use it during the day, but it tends to leave a chalky residue once it's dried after you've applied it - so i don't know how it would work under makeup. I also don't really mix it with my moisturizer or any other serums I use since I'm not 100% sure how my skin would react. Also, maybe because my skin is a bit sensitive, but if I apply heavy amounts of it (like two or three layers) for more than one or two nights, it does cause my skin to peel. I'll usually just exfoliate and that takes care of it, but that might be troublesome/worrisome for other people. Other than that, it really does it's job and I see results right away.
Good for acne, but beware
I bought this primarily for acne on my shoulders and back, but also to use on my face. It works great for body acne. It worked for my face, but was not convenient for day time use because it has a somewhat gritty texture. I did cause a burning sensation the first several times I used it, but I got used to it.
What I discovered, though, is that when I washed my clothes they came out completely ruined. Every spot where I was using the gel, my clothing was dyed a bright color. I had to throw away several shirts. It did not appear until I washed my clothes, so I am still waiting to see if anything else is ruined. Now this gel is going straight in the trash so it doesn't happen. Too bad because it did work well on acne.
This can be used day or night on a spot or to your whole face. It dried up my zit over night.
Better than any OTC product I've tried
Works pretty quickly at clearing my skin, but I found I can't use it consistently because it is drying to my sensitive skin. If I use it once every other day as a spot treatment, it delivers good results.
I really like this product. I got the mattifying gel in one of my boxes and loved it. I found this product when I was looking up the price on the gel. I am dealing with skin issues so I thought I would give it a try. Works great and I love how it makes my skin feel
What a result!!
I have had this product for two days and in that time I have used it twice a day (morning and night) and the results are amazing! I have large pores and acne on my chest and back and this is really making a difference. If you do use it twice a day it is drying but that is a fair trade for having these ugly bumps disappear!
Finally something that works
I suffer from adult acne & have tried many products with no luck. I searched fora product, read the description, & decided to give it a try. It works! It clears up blemishes in no time. It feels & smells great. It doesn't dry out my skin. I have found a keeper!
Works great for body breakouts!
I had been breaking out on my chest since April. Nothing helped, until I started using this in September. Literally just spread a thin layer on before bed and it cleared right up! The matte finish would be great if you want to use it on your face or during the day and it didn't bleach any of my clothes or sheets the way some overnight acne treatments do.
