After switching BCs in the spring, I was forced to deal with severe acne for probably the first time in almost 10 years. I'm talking about going from a whitehead maybe once or twice a month to having all of the different kinds of acne you could have, all over my upper body (all over the back, chest, shoulders, face, neck etc). I ed many different cleansers and acne products but nothing helped. So I went to a dermatologist who prescribed me two medicated creams and a pill that I have to take 1x/day. My acne on my face cleared up, but that was about it, and my skin dried out so quickly. It was painful. So I was absolutely thrilled to find that this cream actually worked for me. It felt good on, and didn't dry out my skin. I don't feel like I'm slathering on toxic chemical waste like I do with other medicated creams. It made a noticeable difference overnight, even on my shoulders where it seemed like nothing would help. It doesn't smell very good, in my opinion, but the results I've had are definitely worth it. I will definitely be buying some in the future once I finish this sample.
