While I was in school for my first semester my skin went out of control. I had the worst acne I had ever had and eve though I washed my face twice a day with a Neutrogena acne wash, it still wasn't working. When I got home from school for the summer my mom noticed how terrible my acne was and suggested I try something from the DHC line, since she was using their products and loved them. She ordered me the four step acne healing treatment which came with a face wash, toner, spot treatment, and face milk which all have salicylic acid in them. After about one week of using this product two times a day I started to notice a difference. The blemishes I had started to go away and no new ones were forming in other spots on my face. after about 3 weeks all of my blemishes were pretty much gone. I continue to use this product twice a day and it is keeping my skin as clear as it has ever been.
