      I bought this for my son who is a teenager and starting to get little pimples on his face. It dried up his pimples and also I used it myself for my chin and it helps a lot. I no longer have little bumps on my chin.

        I bought this for my sweet little pimple faced son. If he uses it regularly, it keeps his pimplies at bay. It's the getting him to use it every day that's the real magic here.

                      A:

                      This is great for helping to clear up acne. I would recommend starting with using it only a few times a week for your skin to acclimate to the acne medication it contains.

                      A:

                      This is very active with 1.5% salicylic acid. If you are just starting on an acne regimen we sometimes recommend to use one time a day for your skin to acclimate. Then you can move up to two times a day.
