Good value. Makes you BREAK OUT. Does not clear skin. Drying. Don't try this product. I ignored the bad reviews because, of course, I was desperate, and I thought, how could this be so popular if it didn't work for some people? I bought the started kit and used the program faithfully. I could only last three weeks. It made me break out VERY badly. Amazing-- because I was already breaking out pretty badly before. Normally I have more cystic acne, but this made the cysts worse and gave me "normal" acne all over my face. It does not even make sense that this would be a "purge" because the cleanser I have been using for the past few years is also salicylic-acid based. I think breakouts might come from the treatment gel which has glycolic acid. Glycolic acid can "spread" breakouts. I recommend saving your face four weeks of misery. Even the other products are totally worthless-- the moisturizer feels dry. The spot treatment is crap.
