I love this gel! I used to use a harsh prescription topical gel that made my skin so dry that it would flake off in huge pieces and was really unattractive. Ever since I started using this product my skin has looked noticeably better! Only downfall is the bottle! The serum is really a thick gel that is impossible to squeeze out of the top of the bottle. I removed the squeeze tip and use a q-tip to get the gel out. The only thing that could make this product better is a better-designed package!

A miracle serum?
This does not sound possible but... I received this product this morning and I put some on my chin which has been broken out terribly and all read from... PICKING, I know... It is 6:30 pm and my skin already looks better. The acne is healing already, and my skin is smoother. The little bumps that looked like future pimples are gone. I love you Mario Badescu!!!!!

I love the anti acne serum!!! It does wonders for the skin!! I am an avid product junkie and have tried many, many products on my skin. I am in my 30s and have had various forms of acne all my life. My biggest complaint with my skin has been the comedones the small bumps on my cheeks, chin, and sides of my face. This product has done an amazing job of clearing my skin and keeping it smooth and the small comedones away. I have never had this kind of success with any other product!!! THANK YOU!!!!

maintenance for acne
This is a great maintenance product for acne. I used to use this every night after I washed my face and the follow with my moistuerizer and I stopped breaking out. its gentle and wont dry out your skin like similar acne products will. Now that my face is breakout-free for the most part, I dont use it anymore but I would highly recommend this product!

This stuff is AWESOME
I've been using it for about 2 months. This product clears up readness - it cleans the skin. I have REALLY OILY skin, so I wear it under my makeup for an all day protection. This product is AWESOME and I would recommend it to anyone who has breakouts and oily skin.

This serum works. I use it when I start to see oil or breakouts, but its so mild I can use it daily without dry skin. I have oily skin and sometimes cystic acne. With this serum, I'm seeing much clearer skin.
KEY - After washing my face, I spread it over still damp skin, so its a very thin coverage, but very effective. After its dried, I apply sunscreen over or make-up. Applying to dry skin I found the serum hard to spread and tacky to the touch when dry.

When I started using this product (with combination of other acne treatments by Mario Badescu) I didn't have cystic acne, but I did have annoying tiny little pimples all over the forehead and chin. And this serum helped greatly. I don't particularly like the bottle since after a certain point it's impossible to squeeze out the gel like serum, but all you have to do is take off the top part and push it out that way. But other then that, works great, my pimples went away within 1-2 weeks.

Acne at bay...
I have been using Clinique Total Turnaround cream for a couple of years now and decided that after I finished my last jar I would move on to a Mario Badescu acne prevention product. I am very glad I did. It is very effective when used regularly. I like that this has the salicylic acid in it yet it is not too strong so it doesn't ever burn or leave a "burn" mark if you use it on a small area like so many spot treatments do.
