Let me first start by saying , THIS IS AN ASTRINGENT. This is not for sensitive skin, or dry skin. You need to know that your skin normally can handle salicylic acid and lots of alcohol. Even though it has natural and organic ingredients this product can be harsh. My skin is acne prone , combination skin and I can handle salicylic, benzoyl peroxide and high alcohol contents and I still had to be careful . I have had great results using this astringent!!! No white heads, very smooth textured skin, no breakouts, and it seems like the scars are fading as well but that could be due to time taking its course. I've used this product for a few weeks and absolutely love it ! HOWEVER , you have to USE THIS PRODUCT CORRECTLY or it can be bad. When I first got it , I used it twice a day. Big no no. At first it worked then a couple days later it made my skin far too dry , peeling and very sensitive. So I had to change my plan. Now , the PERFECT way to use it. I use it every other day, once a day at night. So for example on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only. I know it doesn't seem like much , but it works perfectly and wonderfully. I use I after I wash my face e with my face wash that has 2.5% benzoyl peroxide which works best for my skin, then I follow up with this astringent on a cotton pad, THEN MOST IMPORTANTLY, I follow up with a moisturizer. Yes, it leaves a "sticky" film and yes the smell is strong but after I moisturizer the sticky feeling goes away and so does the smell. Also twice a week I do a clay mask that not only cleanses my pores but also moisturizers my face and after I use a verry moisturizing cream, then later that night I wash my face like normal. This routine has left me with flawless skin, I just need all my scars to fade now!! I will say I have acne prone skin but I don't have cystic acne or acne all over my face , it's mild but I feel someone with moderate or severe acne could benefit even more.
