This is an excellent product. I have tried various products in the past (including Proactive) , however, I have never seen immediate results as I have with this one. My skintone is a medium to dark complextion and I also have combination skin. I usually tend to breakout on my cheeks, but lately around my chin as well. This past month, around that time ladies I had a really bad breakout. I had previously been using, Flori Roberts skin care products ($80) for approximately 5 months and seen no decrease in breakouts. Now I do understand that Flori Roberts products are not specifically designed for acne, but I was told by a consultant that over time using this skin care regimen I would reveal new beautiful skin. Well that did not happen (no offense Flori). I was so frustrated with my current breakout that I decided to go to Walmart and buy Dr. Miracle. Once there I noticed Palmers new product and what I was most drawn to was that it contained products to target current outbreaks, prevention of new ones and fade cream for the acne marks. If your skin is like mines, every breakout leaves at least one mark. The first night I used the product, my breakout was gone! I was so happy. I have been using the product as directed day and night. There was no irritation or extreme dryness. I was actually complimented after one week on how healthy and vibrant my face looked. I have even noticed that my dark spots are lightening. I would strongly recommend this product. You can not beat the price either!
