Did nothing. The gel was kind of oily.

Medicated with benzoyl peroxide


Everything except for the wash (which you clearly have to rinse off) is medicated with salicyclic acid...which never works

Doesn't erase marks

You have to use other products in conjunction with this to make it even look like it's working

Doesn't prevent acne

Putting the spot treatment over the nightly treatment just turns the nightly treatment into clumps of white goo

I wouldn't waste my money buying this again. I was already using either the Clean & Clear wash with the 5% bp or 10% bp in it along with a St. Ives scrub. This was working to a point--my acne would get very small but never completely go away. So I figured since I was pleased with C & C washes, I'd take it up a notch and buy the kit. When I got home I realized that the wash was nothing more than what I was already using (same exact ingredients) and everything else had salicylic acid in it, which never really works for me. Still, I let go of the St. Ives scrub and jumped into the kit. My acne came back, never improved, and my face looked worse until I started scrubbing again before using the kit. At that point, my skin just went back to what it was before--very small acne. The only thing in the kit that did anything for my face was the wash, which I was already using anyway. I ended up just going to buy some Persa-10 Gel a few days ago and using that instead of the spot treatment and it's working well. Now my regimen is: Scrub with a very gentle St. Ives scrub (Tone & Firm is what I'm using) Wash with the cleanser Tone with witch hazel (sometimes) Apply Persa-10 Apply either nightly cream from kit or sunscreen from kit (because if nothing else, they at least serve as good moisturizers). For the most part, I'm basically doing The Regimen with Clean & Clear products. My tiny bumps are finally going away.

Cleanser leaves face feeling really clean
Moisturizes leaves face soft


Doesn't fade scars
Both moisturizer & night cream flake
Spot treatment doesn't reduce size of blemish and doesnt fade scars

The kit doesn't do what it says it does. I used it for 3 weeks & have yet to see a difference. I would apply the moisturizer & let it soak in for about 10 mins. Afterwards I tried to apply makeup over it & it flakes. Both the moisturizer & night cream flake after you apply the spot treatment. The spot treatment didn't do anything. I saw no reduction in breakouts and in the appearance of my scars. Don't waste your money!
