Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! Use it every day! I've been using this for about 8 months now. I got it as a sample and then ended up buying the big bottle. It's lightweight and moisturizing without making my face greasy or causing breakouts to worsen. I honestly think if I put it on at night, my face is halfway healed by morning. I'm absolutely hooked. And I have combination skin. I get dry some places and oily others. This seems to work regardless! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only treatment that has helped my acne I bought this after seeing so many positive reviews. I have moderate cystic acne due to a medication that I have to take. On top of that, i have very very sensitive skin. I tried numerous other acne systems, treatments, and washes and they either didn't work or made my skin worse. After just three days of using this, I noticed a difference. And it doesn't seen to dry out my skin as much as the others that I've tried have. The only bothersome thing about this is the smell when you initially put it on your face. Thankfully, the smell dissipates. I would definitely buy this again and would recommend it to anyone with similar issues. Well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bottle! I purchased this product about a month ago and I could not be happier with the results! I use it two times a week and apply over problem areas. Not only it helps to get the acne under control, it also helps to reduce the visibility of old scars. Definitely would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer I received this about 5 weeks ago and have used twice daily since. It cleared up an existing hormonal breakout and I didn’t get another one this month. I’ve had to use an exfoliating cleanser bi weekly but my skin looks the best it has in years. I will never be without this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what is says, and more. I am a 30 year old male, and I normally don't write reviews, but had to for this INCREDIBLE product. (Shout out to the PTR emails I get.) While I have had relatively calm/clear skin most of my life, I have always struggled with mild acne, and the occasional "wtf-how-did-that-get-there" giant red bump. As I have gotten older, particularly, I have noticed THOSE types more often, which is really a drag in both my professional and personal lives. I have been using this product two weeks now, and it has been terrific not only at keeping acne away, (preemptive warfare) and also helping to quickly dispense with pesky little pimples that decide to try to show up, so long as I get them doused early. I admittedly also use PTR's sulphur masque twice a week (highly recommended), and the two products together have my skin looking and feeling better than ever. I have even noticed, as this product claims, that my dark spots from prior dust-ups with acne are starting to fade. HUZZAH. Would definitely recommend this to a friend, a colleague... whoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I bought the cleanser and have been using it for only a few weeks and i can already tell a significant difference. It’s definitely worth it.

When do you use this product during a nighttime skin regime? First I remove my makeup, followed by a cleanser, toner, serum then moisturizer. I’m not quite sure if I use this clearing gel after cleanser or moisturizer.

Does this work for dark /sun spots as well?

Asked by: Sarah92124
Dear Sarah92124, While this product claims to help reduce the look of residual discoloration, we would recommend looking into the De-Spot Skin Brightening Corrector for hyperpigmentation. It dramatically helps reverse the appearance of dark spots and discoloration due to aging, sun damage, pregnancy mask and post-acne discoloration.
