I am writing this on EVERY acne skin care website I can find, I feel that passionately about this. I have suffered from severe acne since the age of 12, I am currently 26. Anyone who has suffered severe acne knows just how detrimental this can be to your self esteem. It limited my interactions with people, socializing in general, volunteering to do this in front of the class, or really anything that would put my face on display. For someone who was outgoing and social, this was crippling. Experiencing such a blow to my self esteem while being a teenager when hormones are raging and not being sure of yourself is abundant anyways way incredibly difficult.
To combat this I tried a number of creams and pills prescribed by dermatologists that were mildly effective. I also tried Proactive which did not help my skin in the slightest. I took acutane for about a year and that was the most effective thing, but was scary because it could have (and might have) harmed by body. This worked for about 3 years and then my acne came back but in a different area on my face. Again, I tried seeing dermatologists and had similarly mildly effective results.
Randomly one day I read about some young starlet with acne issues who tried the Patricia Wexler line of products and said it cleared her acne right up. I thought I might as well try it. At this point I had tried everything, so I figured I had nothing to loose. I tried it and within a week my acne looked significantly better. By the end of the month, it was completely gone. I was blown away. Obviously, this is something that must be continued consistently. I have skipped days and acne comes back, but if you keep up with the regimen everyday, your skin will be flawless. I recommend this line to everyone I know. I feel so strongly about her products that I recommend her other lines to people without acne issues. This product saved my skin. Everyone who has acne issues and feels like they have tried everything should really try this.
