I am a 56 year old woman who had used Accutane to combat cystic acne (trust me....that kind of acne really hurts--it's like having pencil erasers under your skin). This product completely cleared up my acne and has prevented others from starting. You need to make sure to use a very thin layer--if you use too much you really can have dry skin. My skin looks wonderful now and this is so much c ... Show Full Comment
