Aczone works wonderfully for me! I started using it four months ago, along with another topical medication, and it wasn't working. As soon as I started using it on its own (about 1.5 months ago) it started to work wonders for my skin. I do not get full on breakouts anymore and any blemish I do get is barely noticeable. Everyone is correc t when they say that it doesn't work for non-inflammatory acne, but for any inflamed pustules and papules... it was my magic cure.
Just make sure that you rub it completely into your skin. I mean keep rubbing (gently of course) until it is dry on your face and make sure you use a great moisturizer. The one I use (see signature) is great for acne-prone skin and keeps my face from feeling dry and taut after washing and medicating.
BTW, Differin did not work well with my skin. I have sensitive, breakout-prone skin and all it did was make my skin dry, flaky, and irritated. I mean skin melting off my face irritated. Not good at all! Good luck!
