I was scared to use this product since I have sensitive skin but it didn't irritated my skin at all. It is my fighter for my acne spots. I love it 🤍🤍🤍😍


Cleans out pores beautifully and my skin shows no irritation.

I wish there was an option to send video clips. I've never been this happy. Acne gone, blemishes disappearing.
This product is 👌👌👌👌👌


Product is VERY strong - use with caution and not in conjunction with strong active ingredients. But very effective.
