Worked really well
Purchased

I am having a tough time with post-menopausal breakouts. I recently had a bumper crop of chin zits (what did Tina Fey call them? Chacne?) and it's pretty embarassing at my age! What made them worse is that they immediately "scabbed over" and just looked even worse with makeup.

This product didn't make them go away overnight, but I did notice an immediate improvement. Within 2 days, they were pretty much dried up. After 3 days, I still have one stubborn hanger-on zit, but that's better than the 6 or 7 I was sporting about a week ago.

This product stings like the devil, and it smells pretty rough. (Sulphur? Yes indeed.) Oh, and you will look silly -- little white dots on all your pimples! But it's worth it to dry them up quickly!

The cure to my acne problems!

Never have I ever used such an amazing product for my acne. It cleared up so fast and I have control of my face. Worth every penny and worth a try.

A Must Have!
Purchased

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Most breakouts are gone over night with this, and if they are still there there is a massive reduction in size and redness. Recommend this 1000%.

Nice overnight spot treatment
Purchased

this works well for the occasional cysts I get; I wouldn't use it if needed for a large area, as the product instructions recommend against using it for that. Kind of a sulfury smell, but I don't think it's that strong!

Great Stuff!
Purchased

I've been dying for this stuff to come in because a huge, cystic acne bump came up in my cheek (random) and it's less than a week away from my Birthday. Wow. I put this stuff on last night and the sucker is 75% better! The product didn't sting or burn and my blemish isn't sore today either. Some people said it smells terrible, but I detected a faint aroma of sulfur… I only used a dot as opposed to covering a large area. This is my new skincare staple and I'd say reducing a cystic acne blemish by 75% in one application makes this a miracle product!

Zit zapper that doesn't bleach the pillowcase
Purchased

This stuff is fantastic. It's not harsh on my skin, but it's very effective, and doesn't bleach my pillowcase or towels. The only thing is that it dried out long before it was actually gone.

Works well
Purchased

This works very well, but has a strong sulfur smell. It dries quickly so you don't have to worry about it smudging off.

Helps...
Purchased

This works if you catch a pimple coming up early, but it's not good for an angry, oozing blemish because you're not supposed to apply it to broken skin. (Trust me. I've tried.) If I feel a bump under my skin, I dip a cotton swab into the white sediment at the bottom of the jar and apply it to the bump before going to bed. (Do NOT shake the bottle! It dilutes the medication.) It prevents the bump from turning into a nightmare. I get boils on my skin caused by staph bacteria, and this acne treatment has been helpful as part of my skincare routine.

works, but too smelly
Purchased

I had very high hopes for this product; it does work well but I can not get over the smell. The sulfury/smoky smell clings to everything and even after a couple washes it lingers.
