Pros: -Can use it everyday -Surprisingly minimized hormonal breakouts. I only broke out in 2 pimples using this stuff - I usually break out with 6 or 7 on my upper lip and chin right before my period. -Love love love the smell and the packaging is nice. -Very cheap Cons: -Drying to the skin so I apply this only to problem areas like my nose and around my mouth and chin. This stuff hasn't left my skin perfect, but I have definitely seen an improvement. I would repurchase for sure.

Pros: -Affordable price -Dries out pimples fairly quickly Cons: -High alcohol content and gross smell -Stings when first applied -Leaves a strange oily residue on skin after a few hours It's not a miracle product but it does help clear breakouts faster and calm angry red pimples. I'd purchase this product again but next time the sensitive skin version.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Spectro Jel for Combination Skin

Pros: -Generous quantity for the price paid (500ml for $10 CDN) -Gentle on skin/non-irritating as advertised. Cons: -Smell is quite gross -It takes a long time to lather in. It says to massage into skin for 30 seconds and it takes a while to wash it all off. -And despite following the instructions It doesn't remove my makeup the way a cleanser should and I found myself having to cleanse a second time to remove all traces of makhttp://makeupalley.com/product/searching.asp/eup.I feel that this face wash should have good cleansing properties considering it's an anti-acne cleanser. Overall: A very mediocre cleanser. I don't hate this stuff enough to throw it into the garbage so I use it as a morning cleanser. I gave it a 3/5 (I'd even give it a 2.5 if this site would let me) overall because it didn't cause a huge breakout or cause any kind of skin irritation but it didn't work any wonders on my skin. I wouldn't recommend this product for anyone who wears makeup.
