Not for oily skin
Sampled

I was excited about this product because it promises to clear up pores and blackheads. However, it was so oily that it made my skin look worse, and did nothing to minimize my pores. I think it is better for dryer, more wrinkled skin.

Wow!
Sampled

Neither salicylic acid nor benxoyl peroxide alone have helped get rid of my acne. This is amazing! Does not dry my skin and effectively reduces my pimples especially during my "time of the month." Love!

didn't see any miracle
Sampled

I used it only 2 times. (sample size is too small) It is not fair to tell 'the product is not effective' but I didn't see any miracles.

POTENT!

This stuff packs a punch! My husband used it on his cystic acne and it was gone by the morning. We are amazed!

good bye dark marks!
Sampled

I have combo skin and am in my mid twenties. I have tried countless treatments from spot-removing as acne and aging have left me with dark spots, age spots and red marks. I was lucky enough to receive two of these products in my birchbox (with the exception that I missed out on a product which wasn't present and who needs another eye shadow) but it was WORTH it! You see results pretty fast and if you use as directed (as a spot treatment) it won't dry out your face. I am definitely going to purchase this one! I don't know if I would be as convinced if I had only received one sample.

Paula's choice is great
Sampled

I really like this line of skincare. With all skincare routines it take at least 3 weeks to see final results. This is a trust brand for me.

This product seemed to have potential, but the sample size was so small that it was hard to make a good judgment. I am in my late twenties and have occasional blemishes, the amount was good for a spot treatment. I found the best option was to use a little bit and then let the skin rest to avoid over-drying.

Love this
Sampled

I don't like how small the sample size of this product was. This is one of those products that need quite a few days of use to see how effective it 'really' is. That being said I can see a bit of a difference after using this at night all over my face three nights in a row. A few blemishes that I had are definitely smaller and overall my face seems clearer and well moisturized without being oily. Even though its pricey, it does seem like a great product and I'll be buying it.

Lasts a long time
Sampled

I haven't really noticed any major difference in my skin after using this product but at the same time, my skin isn't too bad and most of the issues I had were solved after using the Missha bb cream I have. A little bit does go a long way though and I would totally recommend mixing this into a foundation or concealer.
