I am loving this product and will buy over and over again; granted, it is a bit on the expensive side however it is well worth it for me - bought my first 150ml bottle mid-June and still have loads left, I think for me two of these per year will be enough therefore not overly expensive and worth the investment. I bought it because I was looking for something to help clear my acne and this was the most hyped/ cult beauty - you name it- product I found. I was aware that it can break me out in the process of helping with acne and was prepared for anything. I must say I do not find the product smelly at all (using the p50w version so perhaps does not have this potent smell?), slightly vinegary indeed, but nothing close to rotten eggs or anything of the sort. Nothing happened for the first 2 weeks, I was using it evening and morning, then stopped using it in the morning as felt like my make-up was not setting properly. Anyways, come July it broke me out horribly, I had the biggest, ugliest acne on my chin, cheeks and some on the neck and thought this is what all reviews were saying - you break out before you heal - and so, I was happy and depressed at the same time. To put it simply, my skin was horrendous, no make up would hide my acne and I did not like seeing myself in the mirror. It honestly got really bad, one pimple would heal, 5 more would appear. End July by now and was at a big wedding with my ugly skin where everyone felt sorry for me and everyone had a ‘good treatment’ that would help me get rid of the mess on my face. Imagine how I felt, but still was hanging in there and continued using the lotion every evening. End of August now, nothing had improved and yet another wedding where everyone was a skin specialist...I was genuinely depressed at that point and stopped using the lotion for a week during which nothing happened - no more pimples appeared and the ones already on my face did not heal- so I plucked up the courage to continue with the p50w and trust it til the end. Mostly everyone around me was feeling sorry for me at this point and I just stopped telling people about this product as they were all saying it was bad and I was depressed as it was already and did not need more negative energy in my life. My boyfriend was the only person who always said to at least finish the bottle before giving up on this product. 3rd week in September I noticed no more pimples appeared and the ones I had were nearly fully healed and had this revelation that the product worked exactly like other reviews said! 4months (more or less) of mad breakouts after which the skin heals slowly. It is beginning of November now and still using it every evening, I have not had a pimple in 2 months now and I am extremely happy I did not fully give up on this! I am sorry for this lengthy review, I guess my point is, if you are using this to get rid of your acne, you must have patience and faith, it will work sooner or later! The only downside for me is, it left me with a few scars (I was always picking on them ugly pimples, could not help it, so I’m guessing my fault) but not major scars and now working on getting these removed with other skincare products, BUT if you have the patience and not pick on them, you will likely have to skip this post acne scarring process. Best thing is, next year I have yet another wedding (yes, I am at point in life when everyone around me is getting married/ having kids and all I care about is skincare) and all those skin specialist will want to know what happened and what I’ve used to clear my skin, but this will be my little secret always and forever.
