Honestly, I don't think it is :-(. I didn't have any luck with anything from this line except I LOVE their clarifying wipes but I know some people don't like them cause they give a tingly feeling that's too strong.
I've seen better results from Mario Badescu. Go to their website and complete their questionnaire and they'll send you sample products that are for your skin issues to try before you buy. My favorite is their drying lotion and whitening mask.
