I just want to start off by saying I've never been one to have perfect skin, probably since high school I haven't left the house without at least a bit of makeup on my face. Earlier this year, I started a new skincare routine mainly so I didn't have to keep getting acne prescriptions. I wanted a whole new routine... big mistake. After some research, I decided to go for the Origins Zero Oil set, which included a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Long story short, it didn't work for me. I tried to stick with it in hopes that my skin was just "purging" itself. But less than 3 weeks later, I couldn't do it anymore. My skin was literally in the worst condition it had ever been. Needless to say, skincare routines with good reviews don't always work the same for everybody. You've gotta try it yourself! TLDR: Was recently on Aczone for a little over 3 weeks and it wasn't doing too much for me despite the rave reviews, so I decided fuck it cause I have no more patience for screwing up my face again. I've been on TactuPump for literally 8 days now and it's cleared up my skin dramatically - it's crazy. Although it's now quite dry around my mouth area and my shrinking blemishes, it's definitely waaay better than having pimples. I had multiple large zits and even cysts which were not pleasant for me or anyone else to look at. I should probably mention this isn't my first time going on Tactupump - first time was back in the day prescribed by my doctor just for mild acne, second time was after I broke out like crazy (once again) after trying a new skincare routine (Clinique Acne Solutions), and this is my third time. Fingers crossed it continues to work for me cause you really don't realize how much better and confident clear skin makes you feel until things go bad. Here's my current skincare routine incase you're wondering: MorningOle Henriksen aloe vera deep cleanserOle Henriksen vitamin C truth serumCerave SPF 15 moisturizer NightOle Henriksen aloe vera deep cleanserTactupump (should probably throw in a moisturizer in there... probably in the near future)

I have to say, that the first two weeks were a nightmare. My skin was so dry and it was peeling around my mouth ja eye area. Every time I went to apply a moisturizer or even makeup, my skin would burn like crazy.I kept using it and now I have used it for 2 months and my skin is a lot better. During summer my acne got so bad that I had to go to the doctor and this cream cleared out the worst areas. My skin did break out after few weeks of using this, because all the crap from my pores was coming out. As well as the spots this also helped with scaring/dark spots.Overall it's a nice product but a pain in the arse to use!

I saw results in literally the first day, most of my acne had been cleared up the next morning and it got better as i continued to use it, although I was extremely happy with this result I was sad to see that my face gradually got redder each morning, after only about 5 days of use it stung to touch my face or to apply anything (makeup, lotion etc.) This is a seemingly good acne treatment although it is too harsh for me.

This is a pretty good acne product for people who don't have much acne on their face. It definitely does nothing for my terrible acne on my chest and back. For my face it took most of the acne and redness away. I would recommend this to people with not too much acne but for people that their acne is a real problem like mine there are better things out there.

TactuPump did it's job of removing all the zits and the pimples on my cheeks, however it seemed to have changed my skins ability to heal. Yes, it did it's job at removing the active zits and pimples, but it left really deep red marks/dots on my skin from where the pimples and zits used to be as well as shallow scars/dots that don't seem to be going away. Although I know that the red marks could just be hyperpigmentation and I just need to wait it out, however I know my skin and normally it shouldn't be taking this long (aka months and months) for those marks to go away. My forehead, jawline, and chin area are very clear and I have never used this product on them. Whenever those clear areas get a pimple or zit, the redness is there, but it goes away in a couple days after the pimple goes away. I also have never experienced any scarring before, but it seems like scarring and redness occurs on my cheeks where I've applied TactuPump no matter how big the pimple (and I am not a picker). By applying TactuPump, it seems to have made my pimples stay longer, cause deeper redness and cause shallow scarring. I noticed that this was happening at about the 6-7 week mark, and after research of people experiencing the same issues with benzoyl peroxide products, I decided to stop using it at 8 weeks instead of the recommended 12 weeks. With the help of all natural aloe vera, my skin is slowly getting back to how it used to be. So although it worked in getting rid of the zits and pimples, the after effect is something that you may also want to consider whether it's worth it or not. Good luck!!

I was prescribed Epiduo by my dermatologist after breaking out horribly with patches of cystic acne. This medicine has worked wonders on my skin so far, to the point that even other people have commented on how nice my skin is. I use this every other day by applying a pea size amount all over my face. This medicine has caused dry patches on my skin and some flakiness, when this happens I skip using it for two days to let it settle down. My skin which was already sensitive to begin with has developed a sensitivity to sunlight while being on this. Make sure that you use a good moisturizer with high spf and a good sunblock for sensitive skin. Certain moisturizers and sunscreens have burned my skin since I started using this, so I make sure to buy products with the gentlest ingredients possible. I'm angry that I didn't have access to this when I was younger because I could have been spared years of awful breakouts.

Before I begin my review let me tell you about my skin. I always had mild acne when I was a teenager, and I continued to struggle into my early 20’s. I don’t have issues with dryness, but I get blind pimples that just WILL NOT GO AWAY. Let me say this up front, I have tried every line of skin care out there. Every. Single. One. Under my sink I have a graveyard of skincare products that I used to love. Clinique, Biotherm, Clean and Clear, Proactiv, SkinTx…you get the idea. My most recent skincare beau was Eminence Organics, and while it made my skin very soft, it just didn’t pack enough punch for my acne. A few months ago I was struggling with a particularly difficult cluster of pimples on my cheek. I did everything and they wouldn’t budge. So, after a month of shame and cover-up I went to my doctor. She prescribed me Tactupump and recommended Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser and Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15. MorningCetaphil Oily Skin MoisturizerCetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15EveningCetaphil Oily Skin MoisturizerTactupump (4 pumps all over)(Wait 15 minutes)Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15Tactupump makes your skin very delicate to the sun, so I like the sun coverage with my moisturizer. My skin did dry out a bit, but I just exfoliated every second day and the flakes went away. End of Week 1: My pores are pretty much invisible, and the cluster of pimples of my cheek has flattened out and doesn’t hurt anymore. A week ago I had a few bumps threatening to become pimples, but I’m happy to report they are gone! Other than my “problem area,” my skin in perfectly clear and healthy looking. End of Week 2: The cluster of pimples is pretty much invisible, still a few little red marks but they are fading very quickly. Everywhere else on my face is clear, and I have 0 blackheadsEnd of Week 3: Starting to see a few little breakouts along my chin, I think my skin is just purging itself, We shall see if they become pimples!End of Week 4: My skin is totally clear. The little breakouts never went anywhere, and there are no acne marks at all on my skin. I loved this product. Yes it burns a little bit, but I got over that. My skin felt very clean and there was no residue.

I broke out in May and I was prescribed this medication by my doctor. I was told that results would not be instant and that it would probably take 3-6 months to work. I used this product along with the Cetaphil Acne-prone Foam Wash and the Cetaphil Acne-prone Day Cream. During the first week, I applied a thin layer of the gel all over my face. I felt my face burning and reacting badly to the gel. My face was red and peeling. My face was still breaking out in the first two weeks. But on the third week, my face wasn't breaking out anymore. It had many bumps from my previous breakouts and really dark scars. I would apply this gel every night. In the morning, my face would be really dry and peeling everywhere. But my dark scars were fading!At 5 months, my face had almost completely cleared along with the scars too!!!! This product really did work. Unfortunately, 9 months into using the gel, my face began breaking out again :( I continued using Epiduo but did not see a difference. I assumed that my face was too used to the gel to have a change or effect. Sooooo, I would definitely recommend this product but will say that it may not clear or prevent future breakouts as your face may have adapted to the effect of the gel.

I used Epiduo because my dermatologist prescribed me it because of my acne. She told me that I had to use it 3 times a week since it was quite irritating and probably my face would turn red. I used it ONCE, friday on the night, a tiny layer on cheeks and forehead. First I felt my face really warm, but I thought it was normal so I'd gone to sleep with it as the doctor said. Saturday I saw my face really, reaaaaaaally red and BURNING!!! Over the night, I put baby moisturizer on my face to refresh like 5 times, but it didn't work at all. My face was really burning and inflamed when i'd gone to sleep. About four in the morning I woke up, I saw my face on the mirror and it was LITERALLY LIKE A BALLOON. I'd got scared, I put chamomille but the inflammation did not decrease. I had to go to the hospital, because it was an allergic reaction. It was the worst experience so, if you are going to use this product, first read the ingredients and make a little proof on one side of your face.
