I'm sorry to say that I'm one of the unfortunate people that this doesn't suit! I have adult acne caused by PCOS & I am always on the lookout for my holy grail acne treatment. I bought the UK version a while ago and noticed that, after a couple of days use, I started to break out in really small whiteheads & sore bumps. I thought it may be my skin 'purging' so I carried on using it but they became more and more frequent to the point where I admitted defeat and stopped using it! Just recently a few beauty bloggers have been raving about it so I dug it out again and decided to give it another go. I had a small spot on my chin at the time and to be fair it did reduce in size overnight but within a couple of days I am now covered in small whiteheads and have a couple of really sore under the skin bumps :-( It seems to work on some spots but causes others?!? Weird. I've decided I must be sensitive to one of the ingredients....sigh......
