I bought this because every once in a while, I'll get one huge, problematic zit on my otherwise manageable skin. I find that applying this doesn't really help at all. I apply it to my pimple, and even if the skin is not broken, it burns like hell! My pimple doesn't look or seem reduced in size or redness at all, just a little more painful than it was before.
I figured it was worth a shot, but I won't be repurchasing this one.
Made my pimples worse!
I didn't find that this worked at all. I would put it on a problematic zit but this only made it bigger and more red and added a little extra tiny red bumps along the way.
as long as you take a few precautions, this product is great.
This product definitely zaps those minor blemishes and stops budding ones in their tracks. It works to prevent and conquer those little sweat bumps you get when you work out a lot or if you walk in hot/humid weather (not pimples, but they add unwanted texture to your face) However, I wouldn't recommend using it for 'deeper' pimples/zits. I find that when I use it repeatedly in one spot (more than 3 days in a row) it discolors my skin. So even if the blemish is gone, there's a "shadow" of it left on my face for a couple weeks until it peels or is exfoliated off. It's not too bad, it just makes it look like you have a large freckle. Other than that, it's great. I definitely suggest you put moisturizer or sunscreen on after applying this product though b/c I think it makes your skin sensitive to sun damage right after you apply it.
Not drying...But not very effective.
I love this product because it is not drying like most acne spot treatments, but the thing is that I don't find it very effective. I don't notice really any reduction in the pimples that I have applied it to... I wish it worked, because it seems like it would be a nice product.. Maybe for someone else!
Dries up the pimple without drying out your skin
I have been using this for years and wont use anything else! It helps dry out and decrease the size of my pimples without drying out my skin and getting dry patches.
I would apply it all the time to my zits and it didn't really do much. It reduced the appearance a little bit but I wouldn't waste my money. When it comes to acne products I would spend the extra couple bucks to ensure you're getting a good product.
I've been using this product for the past six months whenever I have slight breakouts. I don't recommend this for anyone who has severe acne problems because it is only meant to reduce/diminish the appearance of moderate to zero acne.It clears up my small problems really quickly but it does burn especially if the pimple has been popped.
I bought this, took a shower, and applied it to this annoying blemish I had. I cannot even tell you how much it burned and stung! Yes, the next day the size was somewhat reduced but jeez it hurt the night before. I would NOT buy this again.
it don't really work for me.i wouldn't recommend this as acne treatment for someone with severe acne problems.it would just reduce blemish on the skin and also reduce the size of the pimple.
