I received a free sample of this and am in love after 1 use. This product drastically decreases pimple size and redness. I will be purchasing a full size once I run out!

Good for acne skin
It's difficult to find products that are moisturizing for ache prone skin. This product is great!

Good for mild acne
I bought this from Sephora about six weeks ago and have used it (almost) daily since. It is very good for mild acne - I find it draws breakouts to the surface more quickly than if I didn't use it. I originally bought this because I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide and am pretty intolerant of sulphur products. I was hoping this would work as a gentle spot treatment for me, but it doesn't. It is, however, a good preventative product that speeds up the healing process of new acne.

Also - it is totally colorless, odorless and super gentle. I find it very refreshing to put on.

it works!!
I got a deluxe sample from sephora and i have been using it for 2 weeks now and i just love this product. I have dry as well as oily skin and this product doesnt dry out my skin but helps with my breakouts. I always have been skeptical about acne products because it just aggravate them more but not this one. I pair it with clarifying toner and this combo has been helping me a lot. thank you !! i had to knock off one star because of the price :(

I have suffered from adult acne for years and nothing has worked. I have dry skin so I have trouble using any acne product because it ends up drying out my skin. I can easily use this everyday, twice a day, and it has seriously cleared up my skin. I still get pimples near my period, but the other 3 weeks of every month has left me with clear, glowing skin! I definitely recommend!!!
