Honestly don't think this stuff works. It leaves my skin feeling a little tight but soft. But doesn't get rid of the acne, it kind of makes it worse actually.

I absolutely loved this... at first. I love the smell, it helped for the first two weeks and then it was useless. Just wasn’t for me! But it helped my husband.

Fights blacks head, while leaving your skin soft to the touch. Good for everyday use, and easily acceptable. This was a product I used once and havent stopped.

It did exactly what the "rave" said. I did lesve it on a little long so it was harder but i loved it and it left my skin super smooth and free of dirty pores.
I just started using this product and it started to burn a little bit and my face looks like a tomato; is it suppose to do that? Or is it because my skin isn’t use to it yet?

i've been using this for two days and it dries my skin out SO horribly, is it supposed to do that?

Is it normal after the first few days to break out which I usually never do? And I woke up today and my face feels like there's little bumps all over, you can't see it but you can feel it. Is this normal and my skin getting used to it? Or a bad reaction and I should stop?
