I have suffered for about two years. My skin kept getting worse and worse. Before that I had almost no acne at all. I would have the occasional random small red spot but nothing that bothered me.
I tried using everything I could over the counter. I got introduced to this product by a friend and when I bought it, the difference was immediate. I even took pictures of myself while using it everyday and noticed the difference.
This product is good temporarily. It did not cure my acne but it did help the ones I had and I believe it prohibited the acne that was about to emerge. (due to the alligator-like dryness leaving no room for acne to grow) but because of this, I got an occasional deep rooted mountain-like extremely red and painful pimple that never come to a head. Which I think is better than 5-7 pimples all over.
bottom line is- if u have acne from moderate to severe with oily skin, it will help your skin about 50%
you will have to keep buying it though because it does not cure you
as i said, this is the ONLY face wash that even made a little difference so this is definitely worth it.
its also great for your back!
