This does sting when first applied, but it works bottom line. I'd much rather deal with the pain then with having acne. Come on people havent you ever heard the saying, "Beauty is Pain", toughin up it could be worse.
You must not give up on this product. It truly does work if you are patient with it. I have only used this for about a month now and I can't believe how much my face cleared up. It looks and feels so smooth. I no longer have bumpy cheeks!
Best topical I've ever used. Has really improved the texture of my skin. Very effective in killing acne... Reduces the lifespan of cysts and unblocks pores to purge comedones. Have been using this for 3 months and noticed slight improvement in PIH (takes about 6 months to see good results). Highly recommend it!
This stuff burned like fire ants on my face when I first started using it... It was HORRIBLE!!! Tough it out... after two weeks no more burning just clear smooth skin. It didn't do a lot for getting rid of redness or hyperpigmentation... but no more huge hard zits!
Works very very well, took two months to see AMAZING results, i had pretty bad acne but now it is 95% clear, just a few very very tiny bumps you can't even see unless you look really really close, also cleared up a lot of the hyperpigmentation and I would say in about a month it will be all gone, I have tried so many products and this has without a doubt worked the best!
a wonderful product for acne as well as hyperpigmentation.
I have a history of acne and now I struggle with rosacea. I've tried it all. Tazorac, Ziana, differin, accutane once a week. Recently I had been using Ziana to improve texture and help with the rosacea breakouts. I didn't realize it was making my face worse. I was an oil slick by 2 pm! I began to get hard cyst-like pimples on my chin. The minute I stopped using it and switched to Finacea, my skin began to clear again.
My rosacea got pretty bad over the last 2 weeks. The cheecks and chin are red like beets, feels like I'm runnig a fever and the face is covered with tiny white bumps that itch. It was getting progressively worse and my doctor prescribed me azelex. She didn't tell me much what it does and the pharmacist said it was an acid, so I was reluctant to use it twice a day, especially that it burns. I used it maybe a cople times and then had to wash it off with water after 1-2 hours of non-stop mild but anoying burning.
After reading some of the reviews I sucked it up and started using it as prescribed. It improved my skin condition significantly. Although I'm still red, the bumps are smaller now and the whiteheads come off.
I have oily skin and this creme helps to keep it dry. I'm surprised to find out that it supposedly works for blackheads, so I'll try to use it on my nose and forehead as well.
Reading all the reviews it looks like it works differently for everyone, but is worth try
just try it, you never know what will work for you. This worked wonderfully for me so I absolutely recommend you try it!
I tried everything, including a 6 month course of Accutane, which when concluded my acne resumed. I use Retin-A at night and Azelaic Acid in the morning and believe that this combination has cleared my skin completely- a wonderful solution to an Accutane follow-up treatment. After the first week of Azelaic Acid use, my acne worsened quite a bit. I was advised by my dermatologist that this would happen- it always gets worse before it gets better! He was right... it's a lot better! One downside: I went on a vacation which after some sun exposure, I stopped using the acid for a few days to let the sunburn heal. I noticed acne returning almost immediately. Maybe acne returned as a result of the sunburn which also might not have accured if I was not using this medication. The cream will also make you very sensitive to the sun. I would recommend a very strict routine and minimal sun exposure. Overall, I love this stuff.
