On my skin this product is effective in getting rid of acne and cyst, tightening the pores, regulates comedones well and fade my old acne marks and overall clear up my complexion (but not whitening). Before using this product I have tried other otc AHA product so my skin is used to this type of acid and I dont experience stinging or uncomfortable feeling while using it. But like other reviewer …Read more

I am in my 30's now so I have my fair share of favorite moisturizers, but after trying this for 5/6months, I think this is my favorite :
pros :
- lovely gel like texture, once spread onto the skin, melted into water like substance into the skin, not sticky, not heavy, not tacky...as if I'm wearing nothing, actually, love it especially since I live in a hot and humid country …

Caution, this cleanser is extra extra drying. I have oily sensitive acne prone skin (what a combination). Changing skincare product is a struggle for me cause most product breaks me out, including this. Now, seeing the ingredients I thought they were harmful enough - but to my surprise, only in 3 days usage this cleanser has succesfully dried out my skin so much it peels, feels taught and itchy- …Read more

Really, I envy you girls who can use natural products. Bought the hype and tried this oil, can only stand one week, from the 1st usage my skin is clogged with big big comedones, all over my pores, from my nose, my forehead, cheek, you name it. Been trying to use it straight, mixed with creams, under serum, all with the same results : heavy heavy comedones and I'm not seeing improvement on my …Read more

See, I've been battling cystic acne for 20 years!I'm 34 now and the acne just got worst and worst to the point I gave up all medications, oral and topical since I can't bear to think yet applying another acne product on my face - was just so sick of it. My skin …Read more

This cream broke me out big time. Tried it on my face, results in big angry cystic deep under the skin acne. Granted I have acne prone skin, that's why I bought this thinking it contains my favorite ingredients of all time, oatmeal (been using real oatmeal as facial cleanser and masks with good results). AND it was marketed for sensitive and troubled skin. why, A-derma, whyyyy?

I bought this thinking it would work like japanese cleansing oils, but noooo....the texture is very sticky, like a gel cleanser and after several failed attempt to use it like a regular cleansing oil, I gave up and use it as a facial cleanser - I've to use quite a lot to make it suds.

I gave it one lippie cause it doesn't dry out my skin but it also doesn't cleanse …

My skintone : medium dark NC40, yellow based, south east asia, Mac MSFN Medium Dark, Shu Face Architect 734, Bobbi Brown Warm natural - and shade agent 14 fits me perfectly, to the extend I cant even tell that I'm wearing tinted moisturizer :)
Firstly I bought a shade Agent 12 and apparently it was too light for me, I think it was more of a pink based...?

Pros :

I really like this product since it enables me to skip moisturizer in the morning as I'm always rushing off the door in the am.

1st off my skin background : very oily but have flakies every morning due to acne med, very acne prone, comedone prone and painstakingly sensitive.

I'm not sure those with dry skin will think this toner alone is moisturizing enough, but …
