I got this as a sample last year and used it for a couple of months. My skin seemed to look more clear than usual, but I attributed it to the weather change because I was hesitant to buy such an expensive product. Switched back to my old lotion and the occasional acne and redness came back. I finally bought this and my skin is looking better again! It seems to clear up old acne scars. I have tried many products and this one is worth the money! Looks fantastic under mineral foundation and has made my skin look and feel better than it has in years. It doesn't smell very good and it comes out of the tube runny (I have to shake it), but it works! Worth it!!!
