Unimpressed, But Not Discouraged
Like many other cystic acne sufferers, I've tried many products in hopes of finding a cure. Hopefully my new medication (spironolactone) eventually clears me up 100%, but until then I'm still on the lookout for ways to reduce and relieve my breakouts I still get. I actually bought this probably around six or seven months ago, and I can't say I'm blown away by the results. However, I did find out my cystic breakouts are hormonal, and that's most definitely the reason why this didn't work as good for me as it has for many people who's reviews I read before buying. Hormonal breakouts are impossible to completely clear up from the outside. You may find a small quick fix but it's not the same as treating and eliminating the root of the problem. Though this doesn't make my breakouts go down, it does reduce the redness a bit. Most likely thanks to the niacinamide. I also feel more comfortable putting makeup over a cyst after applying this. I think if your cystic acne is mild this could reduce the healing time, but for me it wasn't the quick fix I was hoping for when I got it.
