After taking two different prescriptions of pills which did nothing to curb the very swollen red bumping acne... I got Acanya... in days the whole face swelling and redness was gone... I still get occasional breakouts... stress related... but I will say that the pump delivery method is inconsistent... sometimes the effectiveness of the drug is far less than 30 days... and it is very expensive and ...

I have never written a review on anything before especially acne medications simply because I've never been very happy with the results.

You have to apply it twice a day, the whole area of your face - and you will see serious results! I recommended twice a day, morning and night - a thin layer and apply a bit more on troubled spots. I was surprised how effective this was, after about a week. Stick with it.

I tried this cream, and it was painless for the first 3 days, but after that my face started to turn super red like a bad sunburn, it over dried my skin and my skin was very sensative to everything including soaps, lotions, and make up. It seemed like anything I put on my face just made it worse.

I have used Acanya Gel for about 2 months and it been somewhat effective. The very first week I was using it it worked the best, but after 3 weeks my face was totally broken out. After about 5 weeks I stopped using this gel and started using the Oil - Free Acne Wash with my clarisonic and my face been free from all types of acne for 3 months plus!
