I love that this used to be only available through the dermatologist and now it’s over the counter. I feel like it’s a high quality product and it helps keep my acne in check. It can be a little drying, but I follow with moisturizer so it’s not a big deal at all.

This was recommended to me by my gynecologist. After my IUD, my skin went nuts. He told me to try this and that I could find it at Walmart. He was right! The price was great and it helped my skin so much. Def recommend.

So glad this is OTC now. I don’t use it on my whole face, but just as a spot treatment. This eradicates zits I have fairly fast, although it will dry my skin out, so as long as I moisturize as well I’m okay. Definitely need to by the larger size next time.

This gel is good if you want a pimple or red spot to die down, but if you have a big pimple or problem area that you need fixed fast i would try a stronger gel , but i would buy this again because it does help my acne.

This is an acne product that for me worked pretty good. It helped keep my acne less prominent and more under control. You can find it at most drug stores and for a reasonable price. I would recommend this product.

Initially, this product was hard on my skin. However, after using it for a while it is very good. It keeps my acne under control, and if I do break out, the breakouts are smaller.

GOOD as a spot treatment. That being said, I don't recommend using it on your whole face, because it pulls out a lot of the stuff trapped in your pores, and when used too much, can cause massive breakouts.

I began using this a few weeks ago and it’s already gotten rid of a lot of my acne. I’m very impressed. My skin hasn’t been this clear since before puberty. I use it every other night and use only a tiny amount to avoid irritation.

Helped clear large hard cystic acne on cheeks. Also works for smaller pimples on forehead and chin. I don’t think it’s helpful for blackheads or sebum production. It can be drying so I always use it first and put a think moisturizer over it. For this reason I use it only a night or every other night.

I didn't really see any difference in my skin after using this product, it seems to be a gentle on the skin. A lot of people said that it works for them so it's just up to your skin type! I tried re-purchasing but my opinion didn't change.

I have been using this product for almost two months now, my acne has started to get better and I noticed a big difference. Then all of the sudden my acne started to get bad again. Has this happened to anyone else?
