I bought this primarily for acne on my shoulders and back, but also to use on my face. It works great for body acne. It worked for my face, but was not convenient for day time use because it has a somewhat gritty texture. I did cause a burning sensation the first several times I used it, but I got used to it.
What I discovered, though, is that when I washed my clothes they came out completely ruined. Every spot where I was using the gel, my clothing was dyed a bright color. I had to throw away several shirts. It did not appear until I washed my clothes, so I am still waiting to see if anything else is ruined. Now this gel is going straight in the trash so it doesn't happen. Too bad because it did work well on acne.
