Best treatment I ever used
I Used this as the first treatment I ever tried (back in 2003) and it was awesome. I'd hated my skin for a long time, it was just covered in spots, chin, cheeks, forehead, everywhere. I'd sometimes count 20 bad ones at a time with numerous smaller ones to worry about and blocked pores/commedones everywhere else.
I didn't even realise that doctors could prescribe anything at the time (I was 17 and thought it was something you just had to deal with). Anyway, I made the mistake of letting my mum come into the doctors with me (I was there for some other issue), Out of nowhere she asked if it was normal for me to shower twice a day (it was the only thing I could do to help my skin a bit). the doctor said that it was probably helping to dry out my skin and would probably help, but I should get a prescription in any case.
So I was pretty annoyed at my mum, but within a week it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Overnight after the first application, everything started to go away. This stuff cleared my skin to baby soft, unbelievably clear within a few weeks. No new spots formed as soon as I started using it and my skin got rapidly better. I loved it.
Any sign of a new spot, I nuked it with this. I still had the odd one or two from time to time but the rest of my face looked like it had been photoshopped it was so good, and the new ones were gone within a day. Think the best skin you have ever seen, it was that...
Sadly, after about 18 months (which is a long time btw) it slowly started to lose its effectiveness, meaning I've been on mino and the regimen ever since (it's never fully returned to as bad as it was pre-zineryt, not even close, even now, I'm sure most people would think I'd never had an issue with bad skin). But I still wish it worked and miss it, because I had the best and most carefree 18 months of my life whilst using it. I never worried in the slightest about spots for the whole time. Trust me, I know how much that would mean to anyone reading this, so I don't say it lightly, but I never went to bed worrying what the morning would bring.
Obviously everyone's different, and I hope this review doesn't disappoint those it doesn't work for, I can only talk about my experience.
From my experience, which I categorically state, could well be different for everyone, it worked immediately because it was applied direct to the affected area. If it doesn't work with a week, I'd personally think about trying something else, because I'm sure how it worked for me is how it's supposed to work.
Hope this helps. Praying it works for more people the same as it did for me, because it was awesome. Sincerest good luck!
