I’m going to start off this post by stating that this is the best acne treatment product that I have used thus far. It is not like other treatments which dry and irritate your skin!
Firstly, I like that this comes in a squeeze bottle because I don’t have to dip my finger in a jar; this is much more sanitary. The bottle contains 50ml of product which is decent, if not generous compared to other acne treatments. The product itself smells rather minty and pleasant and feels cooling upon application.
I was a little confused at first whether if this was a moisturizer that helps with acne or if it is just a treatment and I need to follow up with a moisturizer. So after using this I realized that this is an acne treatment that is not drying and feels rather hydrating on (reminder: I have extremely oily skin). I could skip the moisturizer with this but I prefer to follow up with a moisturizer because either way the ingredient that kills acne (Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5%) is drying after a few days of use. However, this ingredient is much more effective on me than Salicylic acid which is in most acne treatment products.
Currently my skin is clear – no breakouts (thanks to the Clinique 3-step!) but I tend to get an area of tiny breakouts once in a while or a small breakout during that time of the month so when that happens I generously apply this before I sleep and wake up to see a big reduction of the breakout! I continue using this until I feel that the breakout is not visible and that usually takes about 2 nights.
I love and highly recommend this product; it is definitely a staple in my skincare drawer since it is the quickest and most gentle way of clearing up the skin.
