This is my absolute favorite zit fighting cream. It's a great price and a tube lasts a long time, as a little bit of this stuff goes a long way. It spreads easily and absorbs quickly. It clears up zits pronto! A little of this and a zit is gone within 24 hours. Maybe 48 if it's a tough one.
I have once in a while acne. This product is cheap, and very effective. The day after it is gone. What is nice is no dryness of the skin.
Hands down The Original Acne Free Terminator is the best blemish spot treatment I've tried over the counter (the very best blemish spot treatment I use is prescription based Differin XP).
I've tried so many blemish spot treatments over the years - Oxy's Deep Pore Vanishing Treatment, Clearasil Vanishing Acne Treatment , tea tree oil, random clay masks used as zit treatments and even toothpaste (!) to name a few that did not work anywhere close to this Acne Free Terminator.
I initially heard about this product from another blogger.
Half a year ago when my younger sister and I were browsing aisles in a Target Store in the USA, I saw some AcneFree products and recalled what Cathy had said on her blog so I suggested it to my younger sister who is much more acne prone than I am.
My younger sister bought a tube and after a couple of weeks she was raving about it.
My younger sister is really acne prone and has tried many store bought acne products as well as doctor prescribed acne treatments including the very strong (and rather scary side effects) Accutane. So she would know best when it comes to acne treatment suggestions and prior to this AcneFree Terminator, whenever I asked her to suggest a new blemish spot treatment for me, she said pretty much nothing worked. And I trust both my sisters when it comes to product suggestions so the next time I was in Target I bought one too.
To my fellow Canadians - they don't sell this in stores in Canada yet. I have only bought mine at Target but not to fret as they do sell them on ebay (and Target is now coming to Canada. Yay!)
I want to point out that this is a review for The Original AcneFree Terminator. My younger sister bought her second tube of AcneFree Terminator from ebay and ordered the AcneFree Terminator 10 - which has 10% bp instead of the 2% bp found in the Original Formula. My younger sister reported that the AcneFree Terminator 10 is not good and she'll be sticking to The Original Formula. She figures that The Original Formula is better because of the witch hazel in it.
I know we all have different skincare types and needs so I wanted to point out that my skin type is sensitive. Unlike my younger sister I have sensitive skin and maybe I have one blemish every 1-2 months. Perhaps this is great news for those with sensitive skin as many acne products are excessively drying and have nonetheless irritated my sensitive skin. I had no problems at all with The Original AcneFree Terminator in terms of causing skin dryness or irritation.
So I knew this stuff was awesome from day one because it literally shrank my blemish overnight like no other product before. Any doubts of this miracle in my mind were confirmed when I started to use my new Clarisonic. I followed the directions from Clarisonic and used the Clarisonic on my face for one minute daily. Yeah, well I guess that might not be the best idea for those with sensitive skin like me. I was worried about having skin irritation from the exfoliating motions of the brush, but that was not the case - no rash or excessive dryness. But what did happen was that I got a lot of pimples from using the Clarisonic every day within the first week and half. Then I did some online research and found that many others had experienced the same problem - the solution was to cut back on usage of the Clarisonic to maybe once every other day or every third day. So basically, one weekend while I had these awful blemishes from my Clarisonic, I spent three consecutive nights at my parents house and forgot my AcneFree Terminator. Lets just say that my blemishes looked like the healing process stopped completely during the three days without my AcneFree Terminator. As soon as I got back to my place I started up with the AcneFree Terminator and sure enough, it dramatically reduced my blemishes.
