Lac-Hydrin Lotion (5% lactic acid) is THE best thing that I have found yet!
mild stinging for 5-10 minutes after application
I have EXTREMELY oily skin (can almost feel it trickle down my skin), blackheads, whiteheads, moderate acne with about 3-4 new cystic bumbs a day, but after just about a week of using Lac-Hydrin lotion (@ 5%, they do ,make a 12% under a slightly diff. name but my dermatologist said it is not recommended for the face) as my twice daily moisturizer, followed by a light application of Retin-A micro at night and Clindacin lotion to active breakouts in the AM, I have watched my pores literally shrink to nearly invisible, have had NOT ONE new cystic bump, and only 4-5 new "tiny" bumps (but over already active areas) appear. This stuff has been an absolute miracle for me. The worst part about acne is the literal pain of the pressure inside of the lesions and it is so great to finally not be in pain. An approximately 8 ounce or so bottle of this stuff was about $14. This is long term adult acne, previously controlled (bcp) but extreme flare-ups after discontinued.

I use a 30% lactic peel once a week. Leaves my skin smoother and controls breakouts.
An inital flare of mild acne after the peel.
I have tried everything and lactic acid at home is the only thing that controls my cystic acne. I now have mild superficial acne, but as we know that is NOTHING compared to cystic. I would give this a try, you can buy it online. Don't need a neutralizer, just rinse and then use baking soda to neutralize. I have adult acne for reference.

Cheap and very effective
Makes skin red for a little while
Awesome, has faded my redmarks dramatically and will continue to use even after redmarks are completly gone.
Very effective, smoothed skin texture and tone.
Face was red for about half an hour but that was it, no breakouts after treatment.
