age- 21

gender- Male

what perecentage- 0.3 Differin and Clindasol (Clindamycin)

how severe is acne- Mild - Moderate

where is acne- Cheeks

did it work in any way- It is now clearing, but it was hell from 3rd all the way to the 6th or 7th week. The initial breakout was horrible. I got acne on my jawline, forehead, temple, areas of which I have cleared up. I guess thats how it works. It reveals all the acne that you will get in months. I am now going on my 9th week and all I'm seeing is positive results. I can't believe I can get clear skin, but many dark marks. I am asian and I have many dark spots from scar and picking. TIP: DO NOT PICK AT THEM, they will spread like wild fire.

how long did it take to work (if it did)- 7th to 8th week

(if not..) how long did you use it before you gave up- I will stick to it for now. I have chemical peels scheduled to help reduce scars.

:dance:
