Questions and Answers

Customer Reviews

  • Mellisaa

We all have different skin and different products work for some and not for others. This product felt great going on my skin but after 3 days of use it broke me out worse than I have in years. I would recommend using this with caution and stopping at the first sign of new breakouts.
 

  • Queen

I tried to use this product on 3 different occasions and they all resulted the same. After 2 or 3 days of using this product my chin area and jaw was popping up with large painful pimples
 

  • B.Lar

This is not at all what I expected it left my skin with big red pimples that hurt. Also my skin was really itchy.
 

  • Sareen.E

It’s alright, it’s helped to calm my red skin but ever since I started using it I’ve seemed to have more breakouts which I’ve heard other users have also experienced. I probably wouldn’t recommend this if you have sensitive skin like me.
 

  • Amanda

I bought this thinking it would help my acne but I did a patch test on my arm before I put it on my skin and an hour later the entire area was covered in red small bumps. 
 

  • Alice

One star because it Didn’t do anything for me & also caused my face to break out really badly. Had to discontinue use.
 

  • Laurie

I would never buy this again. It made my face breakout so bad and actually creates new scars. I give it zero stars.
 

  • MD

I use it every evening, and I see the effect in the morning, but by the end of the day my forehead is covered with spots and inflammation again. So, it sooth the skin only for several hours.
