These pads made my 6-month acne disappear! I used it every evening after face cleansing. Just a half of the pad is enough for the whole face. May be I have a small face))). So after using it you feel pleasant mint feeling on your face. Doesn't dry too much. I have very very dry skin. Then I used moisturizing lotion. Btw, it helps to eliminate postacne dark spots. It's a very very good product.

It doesn't work the miracles that you expected it to when you read al those reviews, description etc. It might work better if you use it regularly as for me I couldn't bring myself to use it regularly because it extremely dries the skin so much so even the moisturizer would give up on it. But the little that I've used this I think it does kill the pimples slightly faster than when it dies naturally. Just slightly!

It is probably best known for its use as a key ingredient in topical anti-acne products. I highly recommend this one for acne control.

I've never had any issues with skin and have always been complimented on my smooth and clear skin. But about a year ago, my skin started breaking out in the cheek area as well as on my back. Initially it was just one big acne at a time but the number and frequency of the break outs started increasing. Nothing had changed in my diet. Anyways. After using this product I have definitely noticed that my pimples die out sooner and fewer new pimples form. That doesn't mean I don't get new ones at all, but I definitely notice its effects. It is slightly harsh so after I wipe, I use a generous amount of lotion to make sure my face won't get too dried out. That seems to help as well.
