I love this. It smells very chemically but that's okay. It's very effective, it easily dries out pimples within the next day. Recommend 10/10

I've used this for a couple of months and it works well with under the skin bumps. Its a bit drying so make sure to mosturize after using it.

This is one of the best acne products I have ever used. I’ve purchased at ULTA and Nordstrom. It is effective without making skin sensitive.

This makes my breakouts disappear so fast! It's a must have if you suffer from frequent breakouts. It doesn't do much for blackheads though.
