I commonly have breakouts and have even come to terms with my skin. I have a regiment from my dermatologist so when I received this sample I was not excited. I figured it would be the same as every other acne remedy. I was pleasantly surprised. I used it before going to bed and applied a small amount. Nothing too dramatic in the morning, blemishes were still mostly there. Didn't use it again. Next morning completely clear skin. I was amazed that it cleared everything on my face in just over a day and it did it without drying my skin out or having issues with my other skin items. I will buy this for sure!
