Product Review (submitted on April 27, 2014):
Holy cow. I'm writing this review after using the product for only two nights because that is all I need to tell you that it is a miracle in a bottle for me. For whatever reason, my face decided to freak out the last couple of weeks and I had a plague of nodulocystic acne that was painful enough to keep me awake at night. Literally nothing I tried worked. I tried salicylic acid treatments in multiple strengths, benzoyl peroxide, heavy duty antibiotic ointment (like the prescription stuff, y'all), and hydrocolloid bandages. Not a single spot budged. Actually, I think more popped up but I quit counting after 15 or so. Yeah. Freaking horrible.
And then my package from Kate Somerville came on Friday, 4/25. I followed the directions exactly and put it on right before I went to bed. Immediately, a good bit of the pain eased up. After one night, small pimples were gone, reduced to tiny pink flat spots, and most of the cysts had gotten smaller. After two nights, the pain was completely gone, the pink spots from the smaller pimples were gone, all remaining cysts but one were completely flat, and the single remaining one was almost unnoticeable. And the most awesome part? No nasty, dry, flaky areas like the ones that show up when I use other types of treatments. The smell isn't really something I'd want to bottle up and wear as perfume or anything, but it's worth it for the results this gave me. I seriously never want to be without this stuff in my bathroom again.
