THIS WORKS, MY DAUGHTER AND NEPHEW HAVE GREAT SKIN BECAUSE OF IT. IF YOU HAVE HUNDREDS OF LITTLE BUMPS ON YOUR FACE, ARMS, BACK, AND THIGHS THIS WILL CLEAR IT RIGHT UP. WE TRIED EVERYTHING FROM SCRUBS AND OINTMENT TO RESOLVE THEIR SKIN ISSUES. WITHIN THREE DAYS, THEIR SKIN WAS CLEAR AND REMAINS CLEAR. AWESOME!!! FOR THOSE WHO NEED SOMETHING GOOD.
