If you are thinking about trying NeoBenz Micro but not sure, give it a shot. This is my first prescription acne medication and although I've only been using it for 5 weeks, it has worked wonders. My acne was nevver too bad, but it was there, hard to hide, and stubborn. Proactiv no longer was working for me so my doctor gave me a 3.5% sample of NBM and a prescription for the medicing. I had high ho...

I have been using NBMW for about 6 months now. It has an extreme drying effect when used twice a day. The dry spots are almost like a mild chemical burn... HOWEVER, they do disappear fast. It's important to use a great moisturizer also. I use Phytomer's HydraContinue moisturizing base cream (I believe that's the "official" name). I also use NBMW in conjunction w/ two other topicals - Acanya and EpiDuo. I alternate between the Acanya and EpiDuo every other night. I find myself slacking on my routine due to the drying of the NBMW. HOWEVER, it keeps the big breakouts away most of the time. I'm still seeing occasional pimples... but I'd rather deal w/ those as they come than a lot of zits constantly. I'm not sure if the NBMW can work alone. Overall, I'm satisfied w/ the product. I don't recommend letting it sit on your skin like some doctors suggest. I wash w/ it for only 10 seconds... max 15. Be careful and when rinsing avoid your eyelids as it will dry that skin easily.

I have tried numerous acne treatments, creams, foams, etc. NeoBenz Micro seemed to sound promising. However, I NEVER had acne in my life until my late 20's early 30's. It is so embarassing, same spots under my chin the the left and right of my chin and on my body too. I have just called in my 3rd month of NBMW 7% and 5.5% for the cream samples and it hasn't really broken the cycle of my Acne at all. I am so tired of trying these expensive products and getting no results. I want to try and get a second opinion from another dermatologist, but its months and months to wait for an appointment. Not sure what to do. :(

If you are thinking about trying NeoBenz Micro but not sure, give it a shot. This is my first prescription acne medication and although I've only been using it for 5 weeks, it has worked wonders. My acne was nevver too bad, but it was there, hard to hide, and stubborn. Proactiv no longer was working for me so my doctor gave me a 3.5% sample of NBM and a prescription for the medicing. I had high hopes for this medicin when the sample dried up some of my acne overnight. Now after 5 week using the 5.5% NBM, I have very, very few small blemishes on my face. Maxium results are to occur within 8-12 weeks of use so I have hope that by then my face will be free of zits. If you're suffering from acne, try this. It's new, and was only $20 for me.
