Didn't work for me

I just did not think this product was useful to me. I did not notice anything different with use.

Helps with problem skin
Sampled

I get whiteheads and this product helped reduce them right away. I was pretty shocked. Wish the sample size was larger so I could try it just a little longer before committing to buying. The full size price is pretty high.

Seems to work for me
Sampled

The product is new to me, but I tried it out and I seem to like it. The areas that I used it on seem to be less red and smaller. I wish the sample size was a little bit bigger, but otherwise, I really like the product.

So disappointed.
Sampled

This had absolutely no effect. I used it on several different skin issues and saw no results. I was really excited to try, but I was very disappointed.

It works
Sampled

This cleared up blemishes overnight for me. Even a couple small deep under the skin cysts. I will try full size soon!

No damage at least...
Sampled

I have recently started using Proactive to control my acne (with mixed results depending on the time of the month, but that's another story...). I've used this as a last step after the Proactive for a couple days and have seen my acne decrease a bit. Some older acne scars may be a little less noticeable, but it's hard to tell if that's the Proactive, part of my natural acne/no-acne cycle, or this product. I can, however, say that my skin isn't getting any worse and isn't drying out.

This product doesn't have a smell, if you are concerned about things like that, and it feels somewhat oily. Definitely something I'd only use at night.

not for me

first, i wanted to know what was in this product. I saw a high % of salicylic acid - and tossed it. I dont have any blemishes anymore...thankfully...and I would not use it on fine lines and wrinkles. thanks tho...

Made breakouts worse
Sampled

I tried this just when I happened to have a break out. I used it instead of my normal acne cream for about 3 days morning and night and it only irritated my break out further. I switched back to my normal benzyl peroxide cream and the break out was gone within 2 days. I just never have any luck with salicylic acid products, I always try them and end up going back to my normal cream.

Skincare
Sampled

I have a set skincare routine and I gave this a try in my nightly routine. I did not see any change nor benefit from the product for me but that might be because I use phyto+ . Not for me, but def a great addition to someone else;s routine.
