Gets rid of whiteheads!!

I don't have acne prone skin, but bought this product because P said that it works for clearing up black and whiteheads like I get on my nose. Within a few days I noticed my nose was SO much clearer!! Goodbye to those nose strips that are no fun to use. I've also been using it for hormonal acne and it seems to be helping as well!

fewer pesky little bumps

I have been using this product for about a month now and over time I have noticed fewer of the little bumps that are always just an annoyance cause they seem to never go away. Definitely a reduction in redness of the bumps that are still there as well. All while being light on the skin and not causing dryness.

all day everyday

this product is so good that it's bad since it's my go-to serum and it's making my ceramide barrier and vitamin c serum are jealous. my face absorbs the nutrients so well and oh-my-goodness what a difference! I don't have major adult acne but this baby definitely makes a difference and reduces the # of blemishes! I have always been afraid of salicylic acid since high school but this was such an amazing experience <3
