    I love this gel its light and i barely feel it on my face after i apply it. My acne has reduced and ive used it for probably 1 month now and my acne has reduced to only 2-3 pimples when my period comes and they go away relatively fast. Only thing is it doesnt help with scaring and dark spots but im also using it with benzyl peroxide too (only apply once a week because i get easily irritated skin) ... Show Full Comment
