I decided to test this out after a loyal cleanser I had been using stopped working for me. I have incredibly stubborn hormonal cystic acne, that tends to scar. This, in less than three days, has completely stopped my acne in its tracks, which really doesn't happen for me. I haven't had completely clear skin for over two years and I've had zero new breakouts since starting this regimen. It has now been a week of using these products and I even feel like my acne scars are fading slightly. It's really effective yet still super gentle. Granted, I have used a lot of harsh products in an attempt to get my acne under control, but this hasn't dried me out or caused any kind of problems for my skin like other effective cleansers do. I absolutely love this and really think the products work together to combat the underlying problems of your skin. I highly recommend if you also suffer from cystic acne. They even have a two week trial kit you can buy, so it's totally worth it!
