I'm a 32 year old male. Suffered from acne since early teens. Derma said I would have adult acne into my 40's. Tried roaccutane when I was younger, antibiotics, BP cream, Salicylilc acid etc. and nothing worked. I don't know how I didn't know about Azelaic Acid but I'm so glad I do now! - Been using for 3 months and my skin is clearer than it has ever been and there are NO side effects to this cream. No flaky skin, no sensitive skin, no sun sensitive skin just clear skin! Use it twice a day after cleansing with a mild cleanser like cetaphil. Apply generously to the entire affected area, this isn't a spot treatment. I rub in over chin and cheeks area. A 30g tube lasts me about 3 weeks. NOTE! - Give this treatment a chance. It takes at least 4 weeks to start working but after that you will notice a continual improvement. Good luck! There is hope! :).

Pros:
  • It works!
  • No side affects
  • Reasonably priced (in NZ)
Cons:
  • Could do with a bigger tube?

I use the 15 % Skinoren Gel , it absorbs better into the skin than the cream and leaves your face with a nice smooth and matt feel due to its skin-shedding properties.

Surprisingly it helps to prevent deeper , cyst like spots which i used to get.

Pros

  • Got rid of my moderate acne , at least a 90% improvement.
  • Skin already started to feel smoother and healthier after one week.
  • No irritation like BP ..

Cons

  • Burns for about 5 Minutes after application
  • moderate
  • for about a year
  • $ 18
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I started having trouble with my skin when I turned 21... i was trying everything including expensive visits to the beautician every two weeks for a glycolic peals and topical tretinoin (which was soooo honorable). Anyways, I started to realize that my acne problem was associated with me having sensitive skin / rosacea. I'm now 28 and have found that skinoren is the best treatment for me... unfortunately if i stop using it I suffer breakouts again.... which only further illustrates how good this treatment is.

Pros

  • Works! I mean seriously works. Great value for money.

Cons

[not submitted]
  • moderately severe
  • $ 15
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

i have tried loads of different creams, gels and solutions in the past which have not made the slightest difference and my doctor said they were all the same types so he prescribed me this which is completely different and contains different ingredients. i have only been using it for one day so far however it has made a difference. i hope it continues to get better.

also if your in full time education get it from your doctor it will be cheap or free

Pros

  • after one day my skin seemed a lot calmer and although i still had redness it wasn't as bad as it was the night before

Cons

  • slightly itchiness
  • moderately severe
  • for a day or two
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.
