Alright peeps--so I've got combination-oily skin (usually oily, sometimes dry from time to time). I started reading labels on the beauty products that I was using and made the decision to go cold turkey and revamp my regimen to something as close to natural as I could get without destroying my face. I am prone to breaking out (though not as bad as it used to be...yay aging!) I usually get some stubborn zits around my chin area and the sides of my mouth/jaw, occasionally my forehead/temples. Even with Clinque, it usually takes a few days for them to go away. I kid you not...I use this spot treatment at night before bed, and I almost always (I'd say 95%) wake up and the zit is gone. I've NEVER experienced this with the more expensive brands who claim to be miracle workers. One thing I will warn you--the texture is a little different. It doesn't soak into your skin right away, you need to work it in. It's like a cross between a gel and a cream. Honestly, I don't find this to be a problem at all because I've seen results, and at the end of the day, thats what its about. This is a far better choice than trying some other new chemical laden product that is toxic. And a little advice from a zit pro--don't over use a product. If you are constantly applying it every single day, your skin is going to develop a tolerance for it and it will lose its effect.
