When I first tried this product, I wasn't impressed, but I actually have hopes for it now. I'm 27 years old and acne has decided to take over my face again. Cysts and white heads. Nothing seemed to...

This stuff is magic. I first bought the infamous drying lotion for my cystic acne that I've had since I was a teen. I used it on a stress breakout and it didn't seem to help the deep pulsating...

I've only been using this for 3-4 months, but can't imagine being without it in future. Initially, I really disliked the runny texture and thought it was awkward to apply, however, now that I've...
