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).

Holy Grail!

My husband and I use this all the time. Especially when we are having break outs. It's very helpful in managing them, especially the painful ones that are about to emerge. We make sure to never run out of this!
