As much hype as this stuff has I would have thought it was the holy grail. Unfortunately it's not all it's cracked up to be, at least for me. The little mask did help some and nothing burns like some of the other acne products out there. It doesn't burn your nose hairs like other products when you smell them. It seems like a nice system, but something needs to improve somewhere. Even my acne prone teens used it and it helped, but no more than good old fashioned soap and water and a stridex pad.
