greatly reduced chin breakouts skin feels overall smoother did not dry out my skin expensive can sting when first applied I am 50 years old, and have had acne since I was 12, off and on. It was bad in my early teens, cleared in my early 20's, only to resurface again as that dreaded "adult acne" in my 30's. I have mostly been limited to chin acne, but this in an of itself has been upsetting to live with, and has caused scarring over the years. Like most on here, I've tried it all. Except accutane, which I simply refused to do because of the side effects and the potential for liver damage. After a particularly bad bout last summer, I went to get a facial and the aesthetician recommended this product, along with the facial cleanser. Well...it was pretty amazing, I will admit. For the first time in a long time, my chin acne was GREATLY diminished!! I'm not going to go so far as to say it cleared 100% or was a "miracle", because I've learned the hard way that there is no "miracle" cure to acne. It just is a battle that, unfortunately, some of us will face for life. But, for me, this product has been the BEST one I've ever used!! It's reduced my breakouts from several cysts every month, to about 2-3 cysts in the last year. And those tend to come to a head quicker and not be quite as big and painful. Plus, this product tends to speed up healing the red mark. As far as treating lines...? Well, I haven't noticed too much of a diminishment in those, unfortunately, but I didn't start using the product to treat lines anyway, so I am OK with that :-) I will say that I also started using Saw Palmetto at about the same time I found this product. This product, plus the saw palmetto standardized extract ( 160mg tab, 3x day) has greatly reduced my breakouts. So, give it a try. Don't expect miracles, people, because you'll always be disappointed if you are looking for a miracle cure for adult acne. It doesn't exist. But, for me.....someone who's tried them all, this product has been the best so far, and greatly increased my confidence around my troubled skin.
