seems to be making a real difference!
on 1 April 2011
I bought this for my 13 year old son who has suffered from moderate acne for several years. He has tried quite a few over the counter creams but none have made any difference, and some have actually blocked his pores and made the situation worse!! I didn't like the idea of taking him to the doctors as I've heard bad reviews about some of the medicine available for the treatment of acne. His confidence was extremely low and as someone who suffered from acne myself in my teens and twenties, I wanted to find something that would help without smearing his face with creams that make your skin sore or dry out. He had lots of blackheads across his forehead, around his mouth and on his cheeks, and lots of sore, red spots all over his face. After two weeks of using this twice a day (usually while watching tv, or while listening to music), he had no blackheads at all and all his spots were much, much smaller and less sore looking. After three weeks, his spots had almost gone and there were only a few new ones, but not as large or sore as before. He is now on week 4 and things are looking really good. He does still have a 3 or 4 spots, but this is a huge improvement on 30 plus! The few he has are healing quicker and are much smaller than before. His confidence is improving and even though his skin is not completely clear (although there is still plenty of time, the instructions say 12 weeks for best results), he now looks like most other 13 year old, with a couple of spots that aren't really very noticable. I know this isn't cheap, but I weighed up buying over the counter creams for maybe the next ten to 15 years (how long I had acne for), and decided that it was worth trying. I will update this after the 12 weeks is up with the results, but it is looking very positive. :)
