Sadly, not impressed.
Purchased

I like to think that I am the lone victim of adult acne, that the world is out to get me, but I know that I'm not. However, with the bazillion people out there suffering from breakouts, how come there isn't a miracle product to fix our faces?!
Is that too hard to ask?! Apparently... I had high hopes (maybe therein lies my dissappointment) with the Origins acne treatment set that it would at least help. I used it for 3 months and didn't notice a difference. For the price, I'm left wanting. Things didn't get worse though, so that's good.
I do love the smell!

Super remover!

I get really bad pimples, but what pimples aren't bad. This gel is amazing! It comes in a tiny bottle but it packs a big punch. I put it on a blemish before bed & in the morning I can tell a huge difference. Sometimes the pimple is almost totally gone. I do not recommend this for in the mornings. It creates a little film over the pimple & when I have tried putting makeup on top of it, you can sort of tell & I am pretty picky about things like that showing. I will continue using this product & I recommend it to everyone. I have sensitive skin, this does not irritate it at all. I have even used it on blemishes I get on my neck which we all know is super embarrassing.

Pretty darn good!

Works overnight magic! I put this along my jawline where I have a constant breakout of cystic pimples and by the next day they are dried out and much smaller. Love it. A little goes a long way.

Great and not drying
Purchased

I used this in tandem with a topical retinol and a prescription topical antibiotic and it still didn't dry my skin out. Made the healing process for my spots much faster.

Best Product & Last Forever

I've been using this for about 4 years and I still have the same bottle! This works like a charm on my occasional blemish, without drying out surrounding skin as much as other products. Highly recommended!
