I have type 2 rosacea. I have had two large red bumps on my face for the past 8 months and after trying several other products, including rx antibiotics and metrogel, I've had more success with this than any other. After 2 nights, the bump is flat. It smells, which isn't surprising given that the main ingredient is sulfur. I put it on right before bed just on the bumps, and I've …Read more

I bought this on a whim after reading the positive reviews. My acne has always responded well to sulfur products--prescription Plexion cleanser, DHC Acne Spot Therapy, Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask, Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. For some reason, this stuff did absolutely nothing for me. Sulfur is very drying, so if you want to give this product a try... make sure to moisturize, moisturize, and …Read more

I don't know how people like this stuff. This spot treatment does absolutely nothing for me and makes no difference whatsoever. For $32 and after reading all the great reviews, this is extremely dissapointing. You can smell the sulphur in this stuff and it smells gross, but it wouldn't bother me if this stuff actually worked and brought down pimple size, at all. Don't waste your …Read more

I absolutely loved this product. I have been using it for a year now, I went to Sephora the other day but to my bad luck they do not sell this product anymore. This has reduced my gigantic cyst that i get once in a while and it reduces the inflammation, then dries them out. It stings when first applied but wake up the next morning to a dry or flat cyst. However, I agree with previous comments …Read more

I've had cystic acne for about a year and was really at my wit's end trying to figure out a way to get these bumps to go away. I bought this as part as the PTR acne kit. I'm glad that I have the smaller size because I don't think I would buy it again.
It does bring down the cyst's (or any zit's) size to flat overnight. The issue that I have with it is that it …

Summary: I like it enough to call it my favorite out of all spot treatments I've tried. But I don't love it enough to call it a godsend.

Currently on my 2nd bottle of the PTR Acne Spot and Area Treatment. It's one of my favorite spot treatments and did wonders for my skin a few months back. It did have a hand in helping me the clearest skin I've had since high …

Even though I said I would repurchase Im not sure about that - I want to see if the sulfur mask from PTR works just as well because if it does then there is no need to purchase both. I have heard that other reviewers use the sulfur mask as a spot treatment. Ill update if/when I experiment with comparing the two.
I use this spot treatment currently with the rest of PTR's acne line and I …

Great product! I have used just about every acne tx, both OTC and Rx, for about 20 years. I have had oily, acne prone skin since I was about 13 and I am now 40(+). low-dose BP, salicylic, retin-a and oral antibiotics are usually most effective. However, any tx loses effectiveness over time, and I find rotating products every 6 months or so helps. I am also always on the lookout for new …Read more

The first time I used this stuff.....I didn't realize the bad smell was coming from it. I thought to myself "damn, something smells....sniff sniff..."...then realized, the horrible fart smell was coming from this. I used it here and there but haven't noticed a significant improvement to my skin, It's ok so far.
