This has been my HOLY GRAIL for my super stubborn acne. Ive struggled with acne for years and nothing would get rid of it without causing me other skin problems, like severe dry patches. I use this on top of the Intense Hydrating Serum as either a spot treatment or over a whole are if im having a bad breakout and it works amazing, gets rid of any spots within 2 days. I use it sometimes twice a day, once in the AM and once in the PM and it doesn't dry my skin out at all. I have repurchased multiple times and really recommend it!
