All of a sudden i came up with some unexpected spots... I used this cream on the affected area three times daily and within 2 days i noticed a visible difference. my spots have gone down - the reddness/soreness/urge to scratch had definitely improved and i feel much more confident about my skin! It does sting your eyes a bit when you are applying it - just be careful and remember to wash your hands after you have applied this cream! An excellent product! I highly recommend it for acne. Also, i burnt my fingers and used this cream and it heals within a couple of days!!!!
