I admit, I was really hesitant to purchase this. 'Maximum strength' worried me that it might cause the burning and peeling other acne treatments brought on.
Burt's Bee's has rarely disappointed me (I'm looking at you, Grapefruit Lip Balm), so I decided to give it a go.
Surprisingly, it affected my acne very little. At least, far less than something bragging of Maximum Strength suggests.
I actually prefer Burt's Bees' Herbal Blemish Stick and will be repurchasing that one instead.
I realize everyone's skin is different, so this might not be the treatment for me. In fact, I'll probably pass this tube along to one of my siblings. Who knows? It make work better with them!
Believe me, I will keep trying out BB's other products-- I know they have something else out there for me!
