    I've been using this medication for 6 months now and my acne has improved dramatically. I never get breakouts any more. I use Differin Gel (OTC) at night and this during the day under my makeup. The only "moisturizer" I use is sunscreen that my dermatologist recommended. (Elta MD - Clear) Highly recommend this product!!

    I've been using onexton for about a year and it's been the only thing that I can find that really helps my skin. I just leave it on overnight and by morning I can tell a big difference in my skin. Onexton in combination with drinking a lot of water really helped my complexion.

    From 5th grade to my high school years, I had acne. It was all over my forehead, and then began lowering to my cheeks. When i went to my dermatologist she recommended Onexton and some pills. I have been using these for about 1-2 months and have seen incredible results. My skin is the best it has ever been, with very little breakouts and bumps. Although, I did have some scarring, so I used the derm ... Show Full Comment

    I have been using this for between 6 months and 1 year due to hormonal acne. For the first time in my life since my early teenage years, I am completely acne free. I use Onexton in the morning and Tazorac in the evening. I ALWAYS apply my moisturizer before I put on this medication because I was also having a lot of dryness, but not since I started doing that. I use CeraVe PM in the evening and ... Show Full Comment

    I have every kind of acne imaginable. Blackheads, cystic, whiteheads, exczema, acne scars. I found this to only help with cystic acne and whiteheads. It wasn't as magical as people described it really, but it did take away my painful pimples but I have bad blackheads still and bumps. Also it bleaches my towels and is hard to comfortably get a moisturizer over it. I tried going off of it three ... Show Full Comment
