I started using this topical at the end of July. In the beginning my face was extremely red, and excessive peeling, nothing I have ever had before. I was breaking out due to hormones and wearing the mask around my face. It took months, I started with smaller zits then huge cystic pimples, three at a time on my lower half of my face. The breakouts have decreased, I think the purging phase is coming to an end although there are still small break outs and peeling will not stop. It did get somewhat better but my skin is worse than it was before. While my doctor said it would take 6 weeks to improve after getting worse that was wrong. I am now on three months and still have the worse side effects.
