I started having trouble with hormonal acne about 2 years ago. I usually get blemishes in pairs around my chin and cheeks. I didn’t mind it too much until I noticed they left behind dark marks and populated in the same spot. So it never goes away really. I started using the Turmeric stick on Wed 9/16 and followed the basic directions. Wash my face, apply turmeric for 20 mins, use damp cotton pad to remove, finish with my toner, Cocokind turmeric tonic and Apply Cocokind Chai Seed facial oil. I’ve seen some pretty surprising results. My darker spots are fading and those bumps that linger under my skin have flattened. I use the turmeric stick in the AM and before I moisturize with the oil I apply the turmeric tonic. I hope this review can help the next person who has questions if it works or not. I believe it’s a must have.
