Recently purchased this and I really like it. I have cystic acne problems and I'm noticing that they're minimizing. I would definitely repurchase this.

I have been using this for 2 years, and sadly this isn't the HG product I had hoped it would be. The PC SA recommended it for my rosacea sensitive skin. I've tried to modify my use: Scaling back...

I like this product a lot - it's gentle but effective. As well as exfoliating, it also moisturises my skin which cuts out the need for yet another step when you're tired at the end of the day. The...

This stuff has some greasy leakage around the bottle ALWAYS. Sure it has 2% BHA but the other ingredients (1,3 Propanediol) renders it USELESS. Not to mention that ingredient is a skin sensitizer...
