  1. Not sure about this pill

    I've been taking the Yasmin pill for 20 years now. It helped clear my acne a bit during puberty. However I'm now wondering if it's actually causing the cystic acne that I've had for almost 15 years, since it seems to clear up a bit every time I stop taking it for a week (which I only recently started doing). So I'm keeping the score at 3 stars.
  2. Part of my daily routine

    Tea tree oil calms down my skin and keeps it relatively clear. I sporadically use it in the pure form on a spot because of the scent. But I do use a night cream with tea tree oil in there (from the Dutch brand 'de tuinen') on a daily basis. It's not the magic cure by itself for me, but it certainly appears to help.

    I had this treatment for cystic acne, but it didn't do anything for me unfortunately.
  4. I used this product recently and even though I only used a little bit it completely burned my skin. It took weeks, and a cream prescribed by my doctor, to get better. So I wouldn't recommend it..

    I tried this twice for 10 weeks, as my GP prescribed it for my cystic acne. However both times it did absolutely nothing for me.
  6. Perfect as topical treatment

    I started using betadine as a spot treatment on non-cystic acne about 2 years ago. It dries out pimples (although not overnight) and appears to prevent further outbreaks around an open spot. Due to the color I only apply it at night.
  7. Best cleanser there is out there

    I was immediately addicted to this cleansing foam. I've been trying many cleansers for the last 15 years and this is the only one that works; it makes my skin incredibly soft and seems to reduce pimples. Too bad it's quite difficult to get in Europe.
