Worked really well

I am having a tough time with post-menopausal breakouts. I recently had a bumper crop of chin zits (what did Tina Fey call them? Chacne?) and it's pretty embarassing at my age! What made them worse is that they immediately "scabbed over" and just looked even worse with makeup.

This product didn't make them go away overnight, but I did notice an immediate improvement. Within 2 days, they were pretty much dried up. After 3 days, I still have one stubborn hanger-on zit, but that's better than the 6 or 7 I was sporting about a week ago.

This product stings like the devil, and it smells pretty rough. (Sulphur? Yes indeed.) Oh, and you will look silly -- little white dots on all your pimples! But it's worth it to dry them up quickly!

Ive struggled with my acne for years! And nothing ever seemed to help it. This product has definitely helped reduce my acne (along with others). I'm not going to lie and say that I woke up one day and my acne was gone but I can say that after using it for a couple of days I noticed my pimples were smaller and after using it for about a month and a half now I don't have any bad breakouts as I did before. I am using other great products along with this one but it is definitely worth a try.

Light effective treatment

Use at night. Gently reduces inflammation around acne area for easy elimination. It also keeps it from reoccuring if you stay on top of it.

Didn't work for me...

For the first time ever, I was excited to try an acne spot treatment that contained sulfur, since I've only heard nothing but great things about that specific ingredient. Despite many of the raving reviews, it just didn't work for me. I have hormonal adult moderate acne, and even then I still have pimples every week that never seem to go away. Nothing has worked for me and I thought why not try one more product. Right before bedtime, as per the instructions, I dipped the cotton swab in the separated solution, I didn't shake it before, I then proceeded to dab it on each pimple. It stung the tiniest bit but nothing to stress over. In about 5 minutes or so I noticed a little white dust coming off. When I look in the mirror, I notice that the product was dried up and was coming off my face. I didn't touch it and went to sleep. In the morning, I didn't notice any difference, in fact, one of my pimples turned bigger and redder. I was so disappointed but despite that I continued using the product but alas, no difference. Also, it dries up quickly in the bottle, after a month of use with a frequency of three times a week. Not repurchasing.

Good, but not a miracle.

This product definitely helped to dry out some-but not all- of my blemishes. I put it on at night before bed and the next morning some of my blemishes were drastically improved or almost gone, while strangely some were the exact same if not worse. It is definitely better than my current overnight treatment, but not the miracle product that it has been made out to be. Be prepared to look ridiculous covered in little bright white dots! Also the smell is with mentioning. It was not nearly as noticeable as I was anticipating based on other reviews. I couldn't even smell it once on my face. I practically had to stick my nose in the jar to smell it. Don't let the smell scare you and stop you from trying it!!
