I have had acne since I was around 12 and I am now 19 and I spent 7 years being too embarrassed to just go to the doctor for my acne.
Last week I got so fed up that I just went and wow I am so glad I did and so mad that I didn't do this sooner.
I've suffered from under the skin acne for a while on my face, chest and back and it has drove my confidence to an all time low and was really painful!
Anyways, my doctor prescribed Clindoxyl gel and it completely got rid of all my existing acne over night that would have taken weeks to clear up with any other drugstore product or by leaving it alone. I've been using it for a little over a week now and I've gotten no under the skin pimples and the small spots that I do have last under 24 hours and don't leave any red marks which my skin is extremely prone too.
If you don't have insurance this is expensive (59 dollars a tube) but since I live in Canada and my parents have health insurance through their work I get this for free. However I would still pay 59 dollars a tube if I didn't have health insurance because it works that well and is so worth all the embarrassment acne has caused me.
Everyone needs to try this!

Interestingly enough, my boyfriend introduced me to Clindoxyl as he has worse acne than I do. I get one or two breakouts a month, but my skin heals very, very slowly. I find the Clindoxyl really useful for drying out the whiteheads, but I wouldn't use it elsewhere. I apply only a teeny tiny amount and find it way too drying for my skin, which is normal/combination. On the other hand, my boyfriend, who has oily skin, uses this product all over his problem areas every morning, and it doesn't dry out his skin. This product does help with diminishing acne, but I don't think it does much to prevent breakouts.

I have been using this for about five months now. This in conjunction with Neostrata Toning Solution level 2, has cleared up my face dramatically.
Your face will need time to get used to this product, it can be drying at first. But don't give up. If your face is really dry, i recommend using a cleansing milk instead of a foaming cleanser, as foaming cleansers are usually very drying and harsh on your skin. I also recommend using olive oil as a moisturizer. I know that sounds weird but trust me it's amazing and it will not cause you to break out. Check out the reviews for it.
Using a cleansing milk and olive oil have allowed my skin to stay moisturized while being treated with these semi-harsh acne treatments. If you skin stays too dry, you will most likely experience more breakouts, as dry skin is a breeding ground for acne bacteria. You need to keep your skin's PH balance at a normal level.
Bottom line is this stuff works very well. With anything, you need to use it consistently for a while - i'd say at least over a month - to see results. You will experience a purging stage, so don't be discouraged if your skin gets worse before it gets better.
If you do suffer from acne and it never seems to go away no matter what you use, I would suggest looking into your diet. Sometimes people have milk or wheat (gluten) allergies and it shows itself in the form of acne. And the obvious candy, chocolate and greasy foods won't do anything good for your skin. Worth a try if your acne won't go away!!
Hope this helps :)

This product saved my life. My skin was clear in middle school but in grade 9 (beginning of high school) i began to break out. I tried every single thing out there - yes, even proactive (which made it all worse). Then in grade 11 around December i peeled a scab and things became really bad.. which lead me to actually go to a doctor. He prescribed clindoxyl gel to me, which i didn't have to pay for because i'm covered. I honestly would not hesitate to spend 50 dollars on this though, because within just 3 months my face changed dramatically! I wish i could post a picture guys.. all my acne was gone and still is gone because up until today (2 years later) i still religiously use this product. I apply it at night and its sticky and gluey at first but its dries completely matte after around 10-20 minutes. I have very sensitive and oily skin.. so if your face reacts terribly and becomes itchy and red like mine did - don't freak out! That's just the beginning of your road to clear skin :)

THIS PRODUCT IS A MIRACLE!! I have had terrible hormonal acne ever since I went off the pill last October. I've been using this gel for about 4 months and my skin changed dramatically. I really only use this on my chin and jaw area because my hormonal breakouts were the worst in this area, the rest of my face was generally okay.
For the first month, my skin felt dry and sometimes red. I also still experienced breakouts but i continued using, and im so glad i did. I can tell the blackheads on my chin are gone and my pores are non-existent!
Now my chin area is soft and for the most part spot free. I still get the odd small pimples around the time of the month, but they're nothing compared to what i suffered with before. Pimples seem to dry up and disappear so much faster while using this.
If you have tried everything, please give this product a chance.

My skin type is combination/oily, large pores beside and on my nose, blackheads on my chin, mild acne with the occasional cystic acne during my period. The first 2 weeks I experienced small whiteheads popping up here and there and small acne spots (nothing foundation couldn't cover up) but the dryness was the problem. I found using bb cream really helped in that case. What i've noticed is it's better to use it in the evening right after you wash your face before bedtime and applying it before you moisturize. I've tried it a couple times after applying moisturizer and I feel it doesn't work as well since the gel doesn't soak in completely. As for treating my skin, i've noticed blackheads on chin disappearing, and no cysts yet! but then again it may be too soon to tell so i'll update as I go on. But so far it's very promising! So much better than over the counter acne treatments.
UPDATE: So I experienced a purging phase in my 3rd month of using this gel and that worried me a lot but in a week it cleared up really fast! It was definitely the worst acne I've ever experienced because it happened all at once. I stuck to using the gel and every morning my breakouts would peel. Although I'm glad that this gel speeds up the healing process.. it still worries me that this gel brings out all my acne all at once. So I guess if you were thinking of trying clindoxyl, be prepared for your skin to get a lot worse occasionally.

I got the script from my doctor so it was covered by my insurance. I have oily yet dry skin. I have been using proactive for a while and it has made my skin really dry. My blemishes are out of control and recently I noticed my face was becoming darker and more breakouts were appearing. I went to my doctor and he recommended this medication. It's been 1 week since I started using it and I love it. Pimples have dried up. Pimples that were beneath the surface came to. I popped the white head and then the cream just reduced the swelling and redness. It takes about a week to see results that are very visible. Otherwise in the first few days you don't notice much difference. I use the cream at night cuz it's shiny and sticky. I also use an eminence lotion over top to keep my skin hydrated. As this cream makes my skin dry. I love it. And I am looking forward to the blemishes decreasing in pigmentation.

I've used this all throughout high school.. only recently (about half a year) I've been getting into more natural products like tea tree oil and witch hazel for my persistent pimples. When I used it, I found that it worked sometimes and did absolutely nothing other times - I just used it cause I had nothing else but my face was never fully clear of acne.
After going through a ton of natural products, I have renewed my prescription to this gel. First off, it works faster than anything else I've tried. I've been using it for 2 days and I can already see an improvement. I basically just lather this on all my breakouts before bed, and it dries white-ish.. kinda like glue (but NOT sticky, which I like). It's not a miracle cream, but it's slowly working.
Now, since I've used it before - I have a terrible feeling it'll become useless over time. My skin tends to be really tough and decides to become immune or non-responsive to certain things so I'm wondering how long I can use this before I'm just using it out of routine. I suppose it deserves 4 stars because I DID come back to it and it DOES slowly clear things up.

I cannot say enough good things about this product. From the age of 12 I have had acne that has never really cleared up, even though I have been on birth control pills for7 years. I have tried so many products, proactive made my acne worse and dried out my face, I can't bare to list all the other products i've tried so much money thrown away. Now I rinse my face with clean hands in the morning apply a thin layer of this cream and oh my god!!!!
I have been on this for only 5 days but dear lord what an improvement I couldnt believe it I started to cry. Within 4 days not only did I suddenly notice my face was clearer, but my boyfriend did too!!! I did not expect an acne product to work so quickly I pray that it continues to improve my face.
Oh and it even clears black heads. I have very deep black heads on my nose that I have never been able to get rid of, I kid you not by the 3rd day I noticed that the black heads were actually 'emptying' on their own. This is a dream come true, I have always dreamed of a face I can walk out in without any makeup on. I will be religious with this medication because believe me IT WORKS!!!
I use 100% pure argan oil as a moisturizer you don't need much very little will do. I encourage everyone to buy a bottle, it has to be 100% pure tho. Argan oil is well known for healing the red acne scars left behind.
Thank you so much Clindoxyl you have done what no other product has done for me, I am so glad I asked about it. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to see improvement and even after just 5 days I can't stop smiling.
I will update this in a few months and let you know how it goes. I have my fingers crossed that finally FINALLY I have found what works for me.
