This spot treatment really works and works a lot better than the other leading brands. I was impressed with the way it treated my face, not just the spots. I usually get acne on one side of my face because I use that hand to rest my face a lot and for some reason, there is a few larger pores on that side than in comparison to the rest of the pores on my face. Every month or so I get the same pores infected and inflamed. I usually use a spot treatment from another brand, but they were out of stock at my local drugstore, so I decided to try this. I was initially not happy with the product because it did not clear my inflammation as fast as the other brands, but what I did notice is that it did clear them up without drying out the surrounding area on my face. Usually, most spot treatments will clear up the particular spot, and the surrounding areas end up dry. This one did not do that, and only took a couple more days to get rid of the inflammation. Therefore, in the end, I did not have to use a moisturizer for the dryness after application and it got rid of my acne.
The only downside to this spot treatment was that I usually panic with a breakout and want it fast, even though it will dry out the surrounding areas because I like a quick fix. However, I need to change my perspective and realize this is the best way to handle acne, that way it does the whole face good. I also notice fewer blackheads after each use and the blackheads disappeared longer than the other leading brands.
I recommend this to those who are patient and kind to their own skin, but I have been guilty of wanting a quick fix, regardless of the consequences.
