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

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.

Not Sure
Sampled

The sample was too small for someone with my skin issues to really have a fair test. It would be wonderful if it was effective, but I just can't tell. I did like the texture of it on my skin.

The jury is still out
Sampled

I used this product a couple of times, but I can't tell if it works or not. I see that a few of the other reviewers noticed change right away (with one use), but I didn't. I don't have blemishes (the blessing of dry skin), but I do have flaky red patches and am starting to get some age spots, but I can't really tell if it worked. will keep trying and update if I notice any changes.

Love it!
Sampled

Because of the oily nature of the product and my oily skin, I was hesitant to use this product. I am so glad I tried it! After only one application on the pores on my nose I found them to become smaller and less noticeable! I've applied it nightly for 4 - 5 nights and it just keeps getting better. Purchasing it today because I don't want to run out!

Great For Stubborn Blemishes!

Been fighting a blemish for almost a week getting no where with other specialized serums. This took care of it in 3 days. That may not seem like fast acting, but on a deep blemish that's been steadily hanging around for a week, I'm impressed!

I really like this stuff- I have been using the pink sulfur stuff whenever I get a zit, but this worked even better!

meh

Too tiny of a sample to see any effects of the product. Also quite pricey.

Not enough
Sampled

The sample size was not enough to really pass any sort of judgement. For the price of this stuff, you need a bigger sample, I'm pretty tired of companies trying to charge SO much for their product and want to give you a useless sample! Because of that, I would never buy this.
