Totally depends on what aspect of your skin's health that you are trying to tackle. I have combination skin, and am prone to all kinds of acne (I get cysts, closed comedones, whiteheads, etc.) This lotion gives me awful cysts if I begin using it again regularly. It also did not help my skin's rough texture or dryness as well as other skin products containing SA I have tried did. Like another commenter said, you can patch test, just be sure to keep the receipt handy!
