May daughter is 11 years old - the oldest in her 5th grade class, and now the first to experience acne. I have probably spent enough money to afford a week long trip to the Caribbean; but, instead - have opted to invest in my daughters self esteem. She was in my opinion, one of the most well-liked girls in her class - UNTIL she had her breakout (acne breakout) - in my daughters eyes - this ruined her life, and in my eyes it ruined her self image. We tried everything we could think of; but, it was not until we started using zapzyt that we noticed an extreme improvement in her complexion. I know firsthand all products were used properly and as recommended - because I was the one applying it (to ensure it was done correctly). In my opinion - you cannot put a price tag on self esteem and we would still be struggling without zapzyt. I am so happy to have my hair tossing, smiling and joking little girl back! As a matter of fact, last night she told me - "Mom, I am starting to like myself again!"
It's been the best product I've ever used to treat my acne with. It's the only thing that's worked for me. I've been using it for about a year and a half. I don't even use a cleanser just water to wash my face. I use this plus a moisturizer. My skin looks great because of zapzyt. This product is amazing I can't recommend it enough! It worked right away for me but for others it may take some time just be patient. Zapzyt never dried out my face that bad as some people say it does..
I've been using Zapzyt (with some generic face moisterizer) for not even a week and already my acne is almost completely healed.
That's impressive seeing as I've tried everything out there, including the stupid proactive system and several of its knock-offs...so far the only other sucessful treatment was taking 3 pills a day (which made me sick) combined with 2 different prescription face creams (one of which cost $90 for a three ounce bottle and made my skin boil in sunlight like a pasty vampire) used faithfully for 3+ months before I saw any huge difference.
Quite a difference from the $5 over the counter cream that works twice as well.
Again, make sure you use a good moisterizer too to prevent too much drying.
Usually don't break out only during my time of the month. Started to use this product and on after the second day there are POSITIVE results.
Unlike all the other product you can think of, it never worked but this did.
Absolutely TWO THUMBS UP.
Make sure you use moisturizer to help with the dryness.
I've used ProActiv, Nature's Cure, Sea Breeze, even prescription medicines like Benzaclin and nothing worked. I started using this and saw results within days. I only use it once a day and if my skin gets too dry, I moisturize with lotion, but it's perfect. My acne has gone away mostly and if I do get any pimples (usually around that time of the month) they are much smaller and fewer. NO CYSTIC ACNE anymore! I have spent tons of money on various products and am mad that I wasted it when I could've just spent five bucks on this.
As a side note, Zapzyt also makes a facial scrub. I've trued the scrub on its own and with this product and it never seemed to make a difference, although it does exfoliate a little and smells kind of nice.
One more note: don't put this on before bed unless you're wearing a tanktop and have an old towel over your pillow. It bleaches whatever it touches.
I've been using this product 3 days after finally deciding to quit using proactive because it wasn't helping at all. The first day I used zapzyt it made almost all of my acne go away! I wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis so it's good to know there is something that works! I recommend using a moisterizing face wash before applying, it helps with the dry skin.
