This product is honestly amazing! Ive been using this alongside Limecycline tablets taken once a day and in two weeks my skin has had no new breakouts and its appearance is much less irritated and red looking. I use Neutrogena Body Wash and then apply the acnecide 5 gel on my chest, back and face. After using this for two weeks I can see a real difference and my skin is definitely on the road to clear skin! I hope this works for you too because this product is seriously amazing!

It really works! If you are not allergic to benzoyl peroxide and struggling with bad skin this is your product! I was on pill for years and havent even dreamt of bad skin at age 34 but gone off the pill and there it was. 3 months later my skin started to show some imperfections and then it hit me with the problems of 17-year old. I gave it few more months just to see if hormones will settle but nothing worked. Then I found this product and in a week I could see improvements and after two weeks its clear. Follow the instructions and be gentle with applying from the start not to irritate your skin too much. You might experience some dryness or redness at first but it will pass after 2-3 day. The result is amazing. I would recommend this to anyone who has mature problematic skin. Not sure how it works with pubertal skin but I would definitely give it a try.
