I've just finished my second month using Zineryt alongside Lymecycline tablets, and find it dries out my acne really well overnight. It does state it should be used consistently/daily to notice a change, which I make sure I do. I do notice it's more effective if I moisturise over the top of the Zineryt once it's dried, as acne needs some moisture to heal. I also put hydrocolloid patches on over the top of the Zineryt before moisturising, and it seems to dramatically reduce large cysts overnight.
I'm 22 and have never had to worry about acne before, however over the last two months my face has broken out in 20 or so spots, with a new one forming every couple of days. I've been using zineryt twice a day for the past twenty or so days and so far my skin has only worsened which is so upsetting. When I started I believe I had around 10 pimples. As this topical isn't as harsh as others I was hoping it would clear up my acne without the dryness etc, however, I was too optimistic. This morning I woke up with four new cystic spots in my eyebrow and two new spots on my chin, also the skin on my chin is covered in little skin coloured bumps. I will be using this treatment for another week before returning to the GP. Today I had blood taken to test my iron/calcium/vitamin levels, my hormones and for my liver functions, just to make sure I focus on what is imbalanced within my body as I believe topical solutions will not reach the cause of my acne. Fingers crossed the results point me in the right direction. I am finding my acne so troubling, I can't take it, I live in student accomodation and I'm finding it harder and harder to leave my room (I'm normally to social one). I have cut out dairy (I have been vegetarian for approx 2 years), I have switched to a gentle face care routine, I have started taking vitamins (ones suggested on here and other sites), I have stepped up on hygiene (making sure hands are always clean, changing pillow cases twice a week), I'm using expensive non-clonogenic makeup, i've cut down on sugar and coffees and I have introduced a lot of fresher foods into my diet but alas no luck :(((((
Great product, i gave been using it for almost a month now. First week my already existed pimples were going down, but new ones were coming out, i guess it is the kind of product that gets it all out first. Second week everything started to settle down and my pores were visibly clean as well as my nose it was so smooth to the touch. Third week a friend of mine gifted me herbal life's purifying mint clay mask so i was using both products and honestly my skin has never been better! Conclussion, it did work for me although it caused me to break out a bit first! But it is worth having a few more pimples for a week (after 4 years of trying different products and nothing working) if its all going away later on. Only issue was the smell, kinda like vinegar
I have had moderate acne for about 5 years now. Used zineryt on and off for a couple of years and worked quite well. However, the acne will return. But at least it gave me these couple of months without any zits. Now, my acne is back and worse than ever and zineryt does not work anymore since my skin became sort of immune to it.
Worked well alongside Anti biotics. Cleared my acne up Well, but it has returned. Smelly product, and can sting on application. Works while it works! My doc won't prescribe it back yet because he doesn't want resistance to grow.
Acne history: I've had acne for about 4 years now, it can get from mild to quite severe, i have whiteheads blackheads spots and occasional cysts, sometimes up to 4/5 which can be extremely painful usually I get 2/3 spots a day. I've tried antibiotics Tetryasl which did work but it affected my body negatively (I believe it weakened my immune system and gave me chronic diarrhoea). I've tried benezoyl peroxide before also doesn't work that well, definitely doesnt improve it. Zineryt: I used this once a day, along with benezoyl peroxide once at night for 4/5 weeks before I realised it was making my skin worse so I stopped and my skin returned back to normal. While using this I developed a different type of acne and spots, i stopped getting normal spots but i got small hard lumps under my skin, quite big, that would form over 3/5 days. I tried leaving them and they would not go, so I popped it. When i popped them the pain eased and it started healing. However from the spot emerged only blood and a yellow liquidy substance (I presume oil) I had around 5 of these on my face at one time - one would heal another would emerge.at one point I got a HUGE HUGE HUGE HIUGE cyst with a black dot in the middle I left it but it started leaking itself with blood and oil - loads and loads. gruesome i know. I'm pretty sure it was this product that caused this as nothing else changed in my routine/diet/life. I stopped using a week ago and my skin dramatically improved. I've been using 'Dermalex Acne Treatment' to repair my skins barrier which this product destroyed, made my skin dry, flaky, did not imprive anything. ps. i did continue to wear makeup 2/3 times a week for anyone wandering, this may have reduced its effectiveness I've decided to resort back to my own methods as these prescriptions never seem to work :(
This lotion worked for a few months and took down some of the smaller spots but then it stopped working after about three months. It did dry my face out a bit, I used it morning and night. I also found that it smells weird and stings your lips if it gets on them. My acne came back and I am now on Lymecycline and Differin cream.
I have used this on and off for a number of years and it worked really well. No dryness and quickly bought down red painful lumps! However i think my skin has got used to it so it no longer prevents any new breakouts.
Seriously worked wonders for my skin. I went to the doctors as a sort of last resort and I'm so glad I did. Smells kind of funny and stings your eyes if you apply it near them but although it didn't clear up all of my spots it reduced them to small non inflamed bumps after just over a weeks use, now am about 2 and a half weeks in and have nothing but fading marks on my skin, I would always get spots in the exact same areas but using this on them has made it so that I have had no new spots. Only ever had issues with a bit of dry skin once but used some moisturiser and it fixed it instantly.
GP said it would take approx 3 months to work but it took a bit longer for me. I had mild acne, mainly on cheeks and forehead. Results weren't immediate but I definitely saw improvements after a month or 2. After 5 months, my skin is completely clear apart from the occasional blemish. I got told that you shouldn't really be using it for more than a year as it has an antibiotic in it so I'm trying to wean off of it. So far, I've gone down to one application per day and now once every other day and it's going well. I only wash my face with water and I use cocoa butter to fade any scars. I am really pleased with the results and I would definitely recommend it to others!
