It's helpful.
This worked pretty nicely. For the price, it may or may not be worthwhile. Didn't have any negative side effects, wasn't very drying, did seem reduce pimples/clogged pores. Doesn't leave any weird residue on skin. I only purchased it once. Have been using products from Skoah since then which are about the same price and equally effective but last much, much longer. If I hadn't found Skoah I would probably have repurchased the Help Me. It's a good product. It's not a cure-all but it really does h

Works in theory, not in practice.
I've used tape on my skin a few times to try to lift off dead skin, and it does lift of dead skin, and hairs -- you can see it on the tape -- but the residue that the glue leaves on your skin is not good. I find this to be more irritating for the skin than anything else. There are better ways to go about this that doesn't leave residual chemicals or irritate the hair follicles.

I like it, but...
I can't honestly say that it ever improved my acne. I guess it depends on what's causing your acne. I'm one of those people who loves the smell of tea tree oil for some reason, and I believe its benefits to the skin when I read them on paper -- it makes sense. I mix a few drops of this into the hemp oil that I use on my skin as an overnight moisturizer because I think it helps to counter the oiliness of the... oil. Tea Tree Oil is one of those things that I've used on and off for about 10 years,

Nah.
Have tried this a few times over the years. It's cheap so maybe it's worth trying for you but my skin didn't respond to it at all, by any method of application, except just getting a little pink. If my skin is itchy for some reason I'll soak in a tub with some baking soda and epsom salts but it never helped my acne. The only reason I'd recommend it is because it does help with my itchy legs when I throw some in a bath, so I'm sure there are possibly benefits with other skin issues, and it's prob

Best topical oil I've used on my skin.
I've used coconut oil, cocoa butter, and jojoba oil on my skin before as moisturizers, but I never noticed any difference. Hemp Oil is pretty awesome, and it doesn't clog pores the way that jojoba and coconut can. Do a bit of research comparing it with jojoba, it has all the same benefits but is less likely to clog pores. I honestly don't know if it had much effect clearing up my acne because I started using it after most of my acne was gone, but it absolutely does improve the overall appearance

Never going back.
Cutting gluten from my diet is the only thing that ever genuinely fixed my cystic acne. I still occasionally get small pimples and some hormonal acne, but nothing like before. Had to cut it for 6 months -- not even a little bit of soy sauce, NOTHING with even a trace of gluten -- to notice the difference. WORTH IT. I can live without it. I eat rice pasta and rice bread, I eat tamari instead of soy sauce. I live in Toronto so it's easy to get yummy things like gluten-free cinnamon buns, sandwiche
