This stuff works better for acne than *anything* else I've tried during the past 20 years. And I've tried many many things. At first I was put off by way the product is used-- you need to dip a cotton swab all the way to the bottom of the jar in order to scoop out the sediment, which is what you apply to your skin. I think the top layer is alcohol, which somehow preserves the medication/sediment. The directions say to apply the product to affected areas, however I use it slightly differently. I take a small blob of the medication, put it in the palm of my hand, then mix it wih some lotion. Then I apply the mixture to my entire face. When I first started using this product, I basically put it all over my face, like a mask. My face cleared up, but my skin became excessively dry. Adding lotion to the mix hekped a lot. My boyfriendtells me that I smell like a volcano because of the sulfur. So if you're concerned about smell, wear a strong perfume.
