Effective for Acne but have to use frequently

I do not have a lot of acne, but it's been nearly impossible to completely get rid of it. I've tried to clean my diet, my bed and my cleaning/skincare routine and there's still 1-3 acne bumps in random places occasionally. I've delved into using stronger actives for acne, they tend to work, but I seem to get more redness and irritation over time. The monolaurin gel has been really game-changing. It's effectiveness seems to be much more predictable. The key seems to be applying it consistently (2-3x a day) and properly (as much acne-prone area) all throughout the day. I have not gotten a new bump in a month so far so I am pretty happy.

Tried and tested for acne

Helped control my cystic acne. I haven’t used it for much else. I just hope the packaging could be improved because it’s kinda difficult to dispense the product from this bottle (though the bottle is very pretty and looks nice on my shelf).

Relieves itchy skin

Whenever my skin is itchy, this helps relieve it. It has cooling effect as well which I like the most. It doesnt dry your skin either
