Having battled with acne since the tender age of 12 (now 27 years of age) I can safely say I am hugely impressed with this product! I have tried every "miracle" cream on the market (prescription free), no I'm not exaggerating, and yeah some work better than others. Nothing actually works for real or in the long run though. I feel as if my skin "gets used" to the creams I apply and goes back to it's normal state of... awful, painful spottiness!
So at the age of 19, having been prescribed plenty of topical creams and antibiotics (nothing worked) I was finally allowed to see the specialist dermatologist and, as I'm sure all of you spotty people out there know of, finally got the miracle cure I was so badly hoping for - Roaccutane! What a beauty, my skin cleared up and I was free of the da*n acne for ever!
Yeah right, It came back with a vengeance around 1,5 years later. Since then I have been on prescription antibiotics and topical prescription creams, without anything actually working- seriously NOTHING worked. time for the Roaccutane to work it's magic again. 4 months after the finished course of tablets, guess what, they were back, all of my dear friends, the spots.
Since then I'm back to the usual hunt of finding the next miracle cream promising me the world in one horrendously expensive tube of probably-rebranded-Clerasil-magic. And then I stumbled upon this whilst hunting for acne treatments on Amazon. I read the reviews and felt somewhat intrigued when others (also ex-Roaccutane users) claimed to have had good results with this cream. "Why not give it a go" I thought, I try everything else.
Having used this bad boy cream day and night for a month and a half now I can safely say that the overall condition of my skin has majorly improved! I am so hugely impressed, I don't know where to start my praises! I am not completely spot free, but they are less frequent and smaller. To add to my experiences I want to mention that I also have the world's most sensitive skin! Seriously, if I wash my face with anything other than fresh water it will react in a heartbeat and I'll spend the next week or so trying to calm it down, so imagine trying to apply Retin-A on it (hah!). But this cream still allows me to use it every day, and stop the spots from coming. At times when I feel extra spotty (bad diet or so) I put on a thick layer, like a mask overnight, stings like a son of a bongo initially (yes, you have been warned)! But it certainly leaves me with less prominent spots in the morning and also stops new ones from popping up.
Now, this cream will obviously not work for everyone as acne occur for many different reasons. However, I'd highly recommend trying it for a month (skin cycle is roughly 28 days before you start seeing big differences) hopefully it'll work as well for you as it has for me :)
