    Excellent product

    Had terrible pupules and it became less visible after within 3 days and gone in a week! And small pimples were gone in 2 days.

    Clear Breakout

    Excellent product, used twice a day on my face. I use 2 drops to cover my whole face, little sticky but absorbs in seconds without leaving any sticky residue.
    Face started getting worse after using product for 6-7 days, but cleared up after that. Now on day 14 and my face is clear. I will recommend using this product to any one struggeling with breakout.
