Used it twice in my life and ended up in the emergency room due to my extreme sensitivity to it. My face swelled, my skin turned rough and scaly-like some sort of reptile! I was completely disfigured for 5-7 days and was forced to miss work for a week. Use with extreme caution!!

I received treatment as a teenager at high dosis for acne. Now, at 30, my dermatologist still combined it with other products to treat my acne and rosacea and after 5 months of treatment, I still feel like it worsens my symptoms.
