Can't live without it
Purchased

This acne treatment is great for sensitive skin. All others are too harsh. I'm patiently waiting for this to come back in stock. I think I used too much at the beginning and have a better understand of how little you actually need.

Nice serum
Purchased

Well I've used this every night for two months on my whole face, that's how long the bottle lasted. I think my breakouts have become not so bad, but I still break out due to my hormones. I love that this serum is natural and doesn't dry me out. I have combination skin but more on the drier side. It's nice to not have Salicylic acid to dry my face out. It's easy to use. Nice calm relaxing smell. I feel like it takes redness away. I kind of want to buy this again because it's hard to find something that doesn't dry me out and that works. I'm just not fully convinced it works. I may want to try it for longer to see if it does.

Something different
Purchased

Was looking for something different to treat minor breakouts. I get so tired of seeing the same combination of medicines that don't work for me. Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide aren't the answer for everyone, pretty sure I have developed a resistance to both. Only been using it a short time, but I can see a difference in severity when I do get a pimple or two. Smells good too, which is always lacking in most acne products. It is a small bottle, but a little goes a long way. Suffered with acne most of my life and this combined with drinking lots of water has really helped.

Crazy Effective
Purchased

I was looking for a gentle spot treatment for spots and such, and I think I've found it! The first night I tried I was amazed at effective it had been when I woke the next morning.

It doesn't burn/sting and smells non-offensively as well. My only complaint is the size for the price. The bottle doesn't seem to hold very much and sometimes the pump releases more than I need.

Good
Purchased

Hasn't broken me out, so that says a lot since I have acne-prone skin. I hope to keep using it all the way through.

Calms and balances
Purchased

Saw an immediate difference after two days. Skin feels a little tight, but still hydrated. The pores are definitely looking smaller and the blemishes on my forehead were definitely calm and manageable after applying this product.

Great
Purchased

This is the first time that I am using this product. I really like it. It is a bit strong so you need very little. I use it in the areas I feel I need it the most. It leaves a little bit of tingling but it does not last very long. It smells a little astringent but if you don't mind that kind of smell then you will like this product.

Excellent, cleared up my skin
Purchased

I really like this product and it really worked for my skin. I have mild breakouts and it helped to clear up my trouble spots. It is gentle enough that it doesn't cause any stinging or redness.
