Purif-AC Fast Action Gel the only thing fast about this product is how quickly it will irritate your skin with the witch hazel, alcohol, and fragrant plant extracts it contains. This concoction will not make blemishes retreat.

Brand Overview

RoC Canada At-A-Glance

Strengths:  Some excellent cleansers; many fragrance-free options; lip balm with sunscreen; packaging that helps keep light- and air-sensitive ingredients stable during use; sunscreens with the UVA-protecting ingredient Tinosorb.

Weaknesses: Anti-acne products are irritating and not the least bit helpful for blemish-prone skin; ordinary toners; mostly mediocre moisturizers; no skin-lightening products; pricey for a drugstore line.

Note: All prices listed are in Canadian currency. These products are available only in Canada, while other RoC products are available in both U.S. and Canadian markets. Be sure to check the other RoC product reviews (listed simply as "RoC") if unable to find a specific product.  For more information about RoC Canada, call (877) 223-9807 or visit www.rocskincare.ca.

Note: in almost every case, the product names (and sometimes the formulas) for RoC Canada differ from the RoC products sold in the United States.
