I'll start with the cliche "i'm not one to write reviews," but I have been struggling with acne for a super long time since I hit puberty. I've tried everything under the sun including accutane, which worked but didn't last. Over the past three months I decided to cut out dairy and gluten from my diet, which actually did have an impact on my skin which was previously covered in non-cystic inflammatory acne. Now I have been suffering from closed comedones which I unfortunately have a tendency to pop. BUT... to get to my product review, the other positive reviews on paula's choice for getting rid of acne made me decide to give some of these products a try. I have been using the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide lotion as a spot treatment, alongside the 2% BHA Gel exfoliant and the Skin perfecting 8% AHA gel. I have noticed a huge difference in my skin in just about 2 weeks! I think that the BHA/AHA have really helped with my closed comedones. My skin practically has no bumps any more, and those that I do get come out really easily now without leaving scarring. The benzoyl peroxide has also been really good for active spots. As I've mentioned I unfortunately tend to pop pimples, but I've been trying to exercise some self control and put this on spots that I would usually try to pop. Overnight I see a significant decrease in inflammation and redness, and things seem to be healing a lot faster when I apply this. I think that everyone's skin is different, but I would recommend ordering travel sizes of some of these products (that's what I did) to see if they'd help. I know the pain of feeling like you're wasting money on another OTC product, and I was worried that this purchase would be the same, but I'm pleasantly surprised by the results that I've seen thus far, and am hoping that my skin continues to react positively!
