A lot of people say they got amazing results with this product, but after using this consistently for the past two weeks, I have seen NO results. I have used it as per the instructions and nothing. And I have stubborn imperfections that I'd like to get rid of, but I'll have to try something else to help me with that. It has a very sticky feel and, frankly, is unpleasant to apply.

Not for sensitive skin
Sampled

I tried this product and within minutes of putting a small amount on my face, it began to sting and burn. I quickly washed it off and my skin was red for a little while afterwards. If you have sensitive skin, this product may be too intense for you!

Thick and gross
Sampled

I was so excited to try the sample, but I was very disappointed. Maybe it was because of the packaging, but even after shaking the product was separated and when I poured it out to apply I only got one part of the product. On my face, the product felt oily, thick, and itchy and I wanted to take it of after 2 minutes. To make sure the bad consistency wasn't just because the product separated, I tried the other part but it felt just as oily.

Too harsh
Sampled

My skin is ultra sensitive and after using this I could tell I should not continue. It was just way too potent for my skin.

Not impressed

Tried using this as a treatment plan for Sebaceous Hyperplasia but noticed no improvement whatsoever. This was the first PC product that did not work as intended, which was disappointing.

Waste of Money
Purchased

Did not do as promised. This is very expensive and I have two tiny red spots I was hoping this product would help with.. all it did was dry out my skin and did not help the red marks. Waste of money.

No improvement

Been using a few days now on red acne marks left behind but no improvement . Maybe it just takes a long time to work. Un scented oil and non greasy.

Very small sample so not sure if you can really even tell how it works. The few days I used it. I didn't see any difference actually got small bumps on my face.

Pricey
Sampled

This seemed to work ok. It felt a little oily to me. I think the sample was very small, so I do not feel like I could make a very good determination.
I also think its a bit pricey for a blemish spot treatment.

Sample size too small to see any results
Sampled

I didn't see any change in my skin while using this product. It was bit too runny for me and the scent, while light, was not all that pleasant.
