Will not use anything else, after seeing such great results. Don' ... Show Full Comment

    My 12 year old daughter has cystic acne on her forehead and along her t-zone....she was prescribed this along with two months of Solodyn (oral antibiotic). She also uses CeraVe cleanser. It's been about two weeks and the acne on her forehead is almost gone and with very little drying....and no side effects. We're pleased so far.

    I've been using this product for about 2 years and couldn't be happier. My doctor also has me using Tazorac at night as well.

    I have suffered from acne all of my life. I've tried every drug, surgery, peel, spa treatment and while some provided some relief, nothing worked for very long. Acanya is amazing. I've been using it for almost a year. After I wash my face (twice a day) I apply it all over my face and follow up with a mositurizer. No more face covered in zits!. When I feel a breakout coming, I apply e ... Show Full Comment
