This product is my miracle worker! I broke out badly over the holidays - I break out under lots of stress - and needed something sort of quick. I asked friends & many of them mentioned proactive and other acne products. I didn't want to invest in something that I needed to buy a "kit" and only use 1 or 2 products in that kit, so I researched their suggestions and noticed 1 key ingredient: BENZOYL PEROXIDE! Now I know salicylic acid is also a key "acne-fighting" ingredient, but I had plenty of skin care items that included that already, and since they weren't working, I knew this BenPer was the thing. Again, I researched some more for preferably drugstore products that contained this ingredient and found this full range of products from AcneFree and that is when I found this. It's tough to get a small amount out of this because it's in an aerosol can. I press down for less than a second and I still get a huge ball of foam, when the directions recommend a golf ball size. Whatever extra I get, I use going down further than my chin & down my neck. The texture of this foam is strange. When I try to get a little bit, it sort of bubbles down and is hard to get a grip on it. Dries in maybe 30 seconds and I can feel the effect right away. It tightens my skin that it almost feels uncomfortable, but that feeling kind of goes away. After 3 days of use with this product, I noticed a big difference. My cheeks - practically the only normal, non-oily part of my face - started to get flaky, while my oily forehead, nose, and chin aren't as oily. My acne was gone within a week. It works almost TOO well, that I've learned to use is sporadically rather than every day. It says the container contains up to 60 uses, and because I don't use this every day, this is going to last me a long time. Love it!
